Chad K. Adams

Georgia Medical Malpractice Attorney


Chad Adams is a trial lawyer exclusively representing victims of serious medical negligence. He has recovered tens of millions of dollars for the firm’s clients through settlements and verdicts, including a record-breaking $10,000,000 jury verdict in Jefferson County, Ga. — a rural Georgia venue with no history of any substantial jury awards.

Chad has litigated virtually every type of medical negligence, including numerous large recoveries in infectious disease cases — a medical malpractice subspeciality for which Chad has earned a reputation nationally. In the past 12 months, Chad has obtained seven-figure recoveries in infection-related cases in four states.

Prior to founding Davis Adams, Chad was a litigator at Alston & Bird, LLP, and served as a contributor to the Georgia Appellate Practice Handbook.

During law school, Chad won the College of Law’s Advocates Prize competition twice, earning the award for Best Brief and Best Oralist. In addition to his J.D., Chad holds an M.M. from the University of Southern Mississippi and a B.A., cum laude, from the University of Mississippi.

In addition to his law practice, Chad previously served as co-chair of Service Juris, which brings legal professionals together to complete a yearly service project in the Atlanta area.
