The Atlanta-based law firm of Moraitakis and Kushel has joined with Cunningham Bounds, a renowned legal practice hailing from Mobile, Alabama. This union combines the strengths, legal expertise, and resources of two distinguished trial law firms, enabling them to handle even the most complex and substantial cases.
The history of Moraitakis and Kushel dates back to 1993 when Nick Moraitakis and Glenn Kushel founded the firm with a clear focus on representing individuals who had suffered injuries or lost their lives due to the wrongful actions of others. Over the past three decades, they have consistently secured substantial outcomes for their clients. Nick Moraitakis, a prominent figure in Atlanta's legal community, boasts a career spanning more than four decades as a trial lawyer. Similarly, Glenn Kushel has a remarkable track record, particularly in cases involving medical malpractice. Mr. Kushel has also held the prestigious position of President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.

With over 60 years of experience, the firm has successfully represented clients who suffered injuries due to the wrongdoing of others, securing verdicts and settlements exceeding $26 billion.
Notably, Moraitakis and Kushel and Cunningham Bounds have a history of collaboration, with their most recent joint effort involving an aviation wrongful death case in Augusta, Georgia. Motivated by their shared commitment to justice, both firms have chosen to merge, combining their wealth of expertise and resources. The new entity will operate under the name Cunningham Bounds.
Cunningham Bounds is known for its unwavering commitment to achieving the best possible results for each client by holding individuals and companies accountable for their wrongful actions. Steve Nicholas, Managing Partner at Cunningham Bounds, expressed enthusiasm for this union, stating, "The lawyers at Cunningham Bounds were thrilled that Nick and Glenn were willing to come aboard. Our combined experience creates a powerful firm to fight for the rights of injured victims in the courtroom."
