Attorney Nick Moraitakis is an Atlanta trial lawyer with over 30 years of experience.
After graduating from Emory Law School in 1977, Nick immediately began practicing law with a defense litigation firm in downtown Atlanta, which eventually became known as Fain, Gorby, Reeves & Moraitakis. Nick went on to spend the first 14 years of his practice with this firm and its successor, representing insurance companies and self-insured corporations in the defense of tort actions in courts throughout the State of Georgia. As a defense lawyer Nick tried in excess of sixty cases to verdict involving automobile and truck accidents, product liability, negligent security claims, slip and fall accidents and insurance contracts among others.
While with his defense litigation firm, Nick also began developing a plaintiff’s practice. He successfully litigated product liability cases against Chrysler/Jeep/AMC, Nissan and Ford Motor Company involving product liability issues with heating and cooling systems, and fuel fed fires.
Nick also served as lead counsel in a highly publicized case against Atlanta Hospital. The case involved a doctor who was allegedly responsible for three deaths within a very short period of time. It was successfully resolved prior to trial based on negligent credentialing claims against Atlanta Hospital, which was investigated thereafter by the State Medical Review Board and eventually forced to close its doors.
In 1993, Nick and his partner Glenn Kushel began a plaintiff’s practice dedicated exclusively to the representation of individuals injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, trucking accidents, automobile accidents, product liability, premises liability and other negligent and intentional acts.
