The People's Lawyer
Brandon Hornsby has dedicated his legal career to protecting the rights of people.
Known as a "fearless advocate" and "champion of the underdog," Atlanta lawyer Brandon Hornsby has extensive experience representing the victims of serious personal injury, civil rights violations, and whistleblowers.
More than anything else, Hornsby is known for getting results.
Some of his career highlights include:
- Serving as lead counsel in over 100 jury trials
- Certification as a Multi-Million Dollar Advocate based on his achievement of multiple multi-million dollar personal injury recoveries for his clients
- Securing the largest medical malpractice verdict in the history of Fayette County, Georgia
- Exonerating former University of Georgia Dean John Soloski who was falsely accused of sexual harassment by his university in Athens, Georgia
- Representing sheriff's deputy Cynthia Hall, who was brutally attacked and left with a brain injury during the 2005 Atlanta Courthouse Shootings in Atlanta, Georgia
- Representing John and the late Patsy Ramsey, who were falsely accused of murdering their daughter, JonBenét Ramsey in Bolder, Colorado
- Representing the late Richard Jewell, the Olympic security guard who was wrongfully accused of planting a pipe bomb during the 1996 Centennial Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia
At the outset of his career, Hornsby served as a state and federal prosecutor. Hornsby quickly developed a reputation for excellence in the courtroom, particularly his examination of witnesses and his moving opening and closing arguments.
During his public service, in which Hornsby handled many of Atlanta's highest profile murder cases, he never lost a murder case. He also became the youngest attorney in Georgia history to be named Georgia's Assistant District Attorney of the Year.
Since entering private practice, Hornsby has developed a history of fighting for the rights of a wide range of clients, all of whom are united in their status as the underdog:
- Victims who experience serious personal injury and medical neglect
- Citizens who suffer civil rights violations through discrimination, retaliation, or government misconduct
- Whistleblowers who put their careers on the line to bravely expose corruption
Hornsby has been recognized as one of Georgia's 40 rising stars under 40 years-of-age by Georgia Trend Magazine and selected by the Fulton County Daily Report as one of Georgia's top 10 lawyers on the rise. As a result of his courtroom success, Hornsby has been featured as a legal expert on numerous television programs including Atlanta's NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates, as well as CNN, ESPN, Court TV and National Public Radio.
Profiled by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Hornsby has been described as a dedicated and tenacious advocate for victims whose courtroom skills make onlookers "want to cheer." Hornsby's trial work was described as "restoring faith" by the Clayton News Daily and "commendable" by the Albany Herald. When asked about the inspiring nature of his advocacy, a former client of Hornsby's explained: Brandon "gave me a hand up off my knees in a time of great spiritual doubt and allowed me to stand up for my rights and convictions."
