The Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO or R.I.C.O.) Act is criminal statute that often used in civil litigation. Our RICO practice is led by Chris Timmons, a former prosecutor with unparalleled RICO jury trial experience. We litigate RICO cases on behalf of individuals and corporations who have been victims of theft, fraud, or other unscrupulous business practices. Similarly, we defend RICO cases in which overzealous attorneys have tried turn a simple breach of contract matter into a RICO case.

Unlike many other litigators, the attorneys at our firm have substantial jury trial experience in federal and state courts, including trying the first federal civil jury trial in Georgia after COVID 19. We can act as trial consultants, jury consultants, co-counsel, first chair, or even try the case for you.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Todd took over the case within weeks of trial, and crafted a trial strategy and crystal-clear message that impressed our jury. Todd skillfully presented our case and masterfully cross-examined opposing witnesses. By the time of trial, Todd understood the facts, contracts and legal theories better than anyone involved in the case, and over the one-week trial, presented it in a way the jury could understand." Dick W.
★★★★★
"Todd won a $400k judgement for me with less than 30 days to prepare. In another case he defended me against a bank with the result being the bank officer resigned and a third party agreed to pay me a significant settlement." Richard
★★★★★
"Mr. Poole works especially hard to understand the matter prior to taking action, and is able to weigh the cost of legal action versus the likelihood of collection. His focus on relationship building and being seen as an extension of the service our credit union provides, is a real benefit. I highly recommend Todd Poole." A.A.
