Mr. Alexander Dewitt Weatherby
Weatherby Law Firm, PC
Alex is a trial lawyer based in Atlanta, Georgia. He works to make lives better with honor, efficiency, and effectiveness. He offers legal representation for folks in catastrophic injury, truck accident, class action, and professional malpractice cases. Alex recovers millions of dollars for genuinely injured folks, and he defends honorable companies in need of legal help.
Recently, he was a lead attorney in a wrongful death trial that resulted in a verdict in excess of $27,000,000, which was one of the Top 20 verdicts in the nation for 2018.
Alex is the first lawyer in his family. His father is a plumbing contractor, and he encouraged Alex at a young age to go to college and graduate school. After working summers for his dad’s plumbing company, Alex was not hard to convince!
Alex has a great respect for construction workers, and those summers taught him a lot about a strong work ethic.
Alex graduated from Samford University, in Birmingham AL, and majored in Communication Studies. He focused on public speaking and critical writing, skills he still uses as a trial lawyer.
Alex is a seventh-generation Georgia and an Atlanta native, so he knew he wanted to come back home. Alex went to the University of Georgia School of Law. At Georgia Law School, Alex was a member of the mock trial board which helps law students with trial advocacy. Alex was also a member of the moot court board which focuses on appellate arguments. During his final year of law school, Alex received the “William King Meadow Award.”
Students and faculty vote to provide this award to “one student in the graduating class best-exemplifying integrity, responsibility, and high legal ethics, and who has the keen sense of humor necessary to bring a proper perspective to solving legal issues.” Alex still works to keep his sense of humor at all times and under all circumstances, which jurors, judges, and clients tend to like!
Alex began working with Pitts Carr in 2010 and opened his own firm in 2021. His practice focuses on helping folks who truly need it, in the most honorable way possible. Alex has extensive experience with catastrophic injury cases, including brain injury, spinal cord injury, wrongful death, truck accident, bus accident, bicycle accident, inadequate security (shooting at an apartment complex), legal malpractice, and medical malpractice.
When he is not lawyering, Alex works to give back to his community. He is a Board Member of the Professional Liability Section of the Georgia State Bar. He has taught several years as an adjunct professor at Georgia State University. He serves as the President of his Neighborhood Association, and he serves on the Administrative Council of his Church. Alex’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his two daughters, wife, and dog in their home in Decatur, Georgia.
