During the the research period, one client commented: “QGT provided great representation, from providing an accurate picture of what we could expect in the entire process to evaluate if litigation was the right path for our company to pursue. Once we decided litigation was our only option, the team did a great job of learning and understanding our business and its unique nuances and sizing up our case. QGT was very thorough in the discovery process to effectively support our case.” Chip Chiles, described as having “an outstanding courtroom presence [who] can communicate clearly his case to judge and jury,” was praised by a client who stated: “Chip Chiles served as our team lead and primary litigator during our jury trial. He has an uncanny ability to stay on point and will not be taken off course by the opposition. [He has a] very solid temperament that will not be shaken.” The client continued: “QGT came highly recommended by many of their peers in the legal community. Our due diligence and experience with the firm confirmed the recommendation.” Another client stated: “I have personally worked with Steve Quattlebaum, John Tull and Mike Shannon for almost 14 years. They provide an outstanding level of service. They are each talented trial lawyers with an uncanny ability to understand and explain complex issues in simple terms.” “John Tull is one of the finest trial lawyers I have ever worked with,” opined a client, adding that he provides “keen analysis, great people skills, [and is] a problem-solver.”
