George R. Neuhauser

In 1978, George Neuhauser graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law and joined Nall & Miller. Throughout his legal career, George has practiced exclusively in the field of civil litigation.  For twenty years, George has led Nall & Miller’s national representation of the world’s largest manufacturer of home appliances and has successfully tried and mediated cases in over forty states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.

George began his legal practice defending a wide variety of liability claims. Over the years, his practice has concentrated in the fields of products liability, and medical, psychiatric, and hospital professional liability. George has defended serious personal injury and death cases in each of these fields.   He has repeatedly been named a Georgia “Super Lawyer”, an honor awarded by his peers to less than 5% of the profession.

George regularly speaks, teaches and writes in the areas of personal injury litigation, trial techniques, and alternative dispute resolution. He was a contributing author to “Evaluating and Settling Personal Injury Claims” and served for years on the faculty of the Atlanta College of Trial Advocacy and the Emory University Trial Techniques Program. George has made presentations for the Georgia Institute of Continuing Legal Education on “Product Liability Law,” “Winning a Jury Trial,” and “Elder Law.”  For the Atlanta Bar Association, he presented “Depositions: Tactics and Issues.”

George, along with Jay Freeman, President of AEI Corporation, presented a case study on “Preparing the Cook-Top Fire Case for Mediation” at the DRI Products Liability Seminar in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Most recently, George was asked to be a featured panelist at the “Bi-Annual Product Safety & Liability Conference” presented by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) in Washington, D.C.

Background and Education

George graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1978 and joined Nall & Miller shortly thereafter.  For his undergraduate studies, George attended the University of North Carolina before transferring and graduating from the University of Georgia in 1975, cum laude, with a BBA degree in accounting.
