Weathington McGrew was formed in October 2016, when longtime co-defense attorneys and friends, Paul Weathington and Dan McGrew brought their respective teams together to form Weathington McGrew. Mr. Weathington started his legal career in Atlanta, Georgia first at Troutman Sanders and then at Schreeder Wheeler and Flint. In 1987, he returned to his hometown of Carrollton, Georgia and practiced at the firm of Tisinger Vance until 1992. In 1992, Mr. Weathington returned to Atlanta and joined Hunter Allen in a firm that eventually became known as Allen & Weathington.
Mr. Weathington began his practice in medical malpractice defense at the Tisinger Vance firm but was able to concentrate more exclusively in medical malpractice upon his return to Atlanta as the firm represented The Emory Clinic and most other medical malpractice insurance companies. In 2005, Mr. Weathington and his wife Molly formed The Weathington Firm, which later became known as Weathington Smith, the name it was functioning under when Mr. McGrew joined the firm and it became Weathington McGrew.
Dan McGrew had practiced 32-years with the Carlock Copeland firm prior to joining Mr. Weathington in October of 2016. Mr. McGrew was instrumental in the growth of the Carlock Copeland firm and was managing partner and chairman of the Executive Committee for many years. Mr. McGrew developed a large following of physician groups and insurance companies.
In addition, Mr. McGrew has developed a nitch of expertise in general liability defense, including products liability, automobile and trucking, premises and general liability matters for a host of insurance companies and clients.
After years of “flirting” with the notion of combining resources, Weathington McGrew was formed in October 2016 with a one-page handwritten note sealing the agreement. The rest is history.
