In a world of increasing legal complexity, Steve LaBriola understands the importance of keeping it simple. This comes from years of trying cases before juries. Each case is a story waiting to be told, and few trial lawyers can match his ability to convey that story to the jury. He boils down the most complex commercial transaction to its core. Perhaps this is why he is frequently called upon in the “bet the company” case.His docket has included cases involving commercial litigation, intellectual property litigation, claims involving fraud and misrepresentation, False Claims Act (FCA) litigation, and suits involving catastrophic personal injury and death. He also has been honored to be the “lawyers’ lawyer” having been asked to represent attorneys when their reputation and pocketbook are at stake.
Mr. LaBriola received his J.D. degree from New York University (NYU) School of Law in 1985 and his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Colorado, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and received the Chancellor’s Recognition Award for Academic Excellence. Immediately following law school he served as a law clerk for Justice William D. Neighbors and then for Justice Anthony Vollack, both of the Colorado Supreme Court. Thereafter, he prosecuted numerous cases as a deputy district attorney in Denver, Colorado, prior to moving to Atlanta and joining a large Atlanta law firm. In 1993, he formed his current firm, where litigation has always been the firm’s only practice.
