Neil Edwards

Neil is a trial lawyer with over ten years of experience in the courtroom. In the first part of his career, Neil tried and litigated cases in defense of nurses, doctors, medical practices and Fortune 500 companies. Now, Neil uses his litigation and trial skills to prosecute civil cases on behalf of ordinary, hard-working people who have been victimized by negligent medical care and corporate greed.

In his less than four years at Childers, Schlueter & Smith, Neil has garnered $54,573,999.00 in total verdicts and settlements.  This includes a verdict of over $20,500,000.00 in Houston County, Georgia against Akorn Pharmaceuticals which is said to be the largest recorded verdict in that county and the largest “single event” verdict against a pharmaceutical company in the State of Georgia.

Neil specializes in cases involving Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis – a severe and life threatening skin condition typically caused by a medication.  These are complex cases, which all involve potential issues of manufacturer liability, retailer liability, medical malpractice and pharmacy malpractice.  We have been especially successful prosecuting these cases on behalf of catastrophically injured clients.
