Martin & Jones is pleased to announce that partner Forest Horne has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America as Lawyer of the Year 2020 in Product Liability Litigation. Forest was also honored as Lawyer of the Year in 2018 and 2012.
Forest has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients. In 2019, he negotiated one of the largest settlements of the year in North Carolina for a worker burned in a plant explosion. Shortly before trial was scheduled, the Fortune 500 defendant paid his client a settlement totaling more than $9.2 million.
Forest has been recognized by his peers as a Best Lawyer in America and Super Lawyer for more than a decade. Forest has also achieved the highest attorney rating, “AV,” by Martindale-Hubbell. What these accolades and ratings do not show is Forest’s commitment to and compassion for his clients.
