The Lichtman Firm focuses on construction, insurance coverage, and fiduciary and probate law. Its approach is founded on the understanding that more than 90% of disputes are settled without the need for any trial or arbitration. As a result, the Firm emphasizes the importance of mediation, negotiation, and collaborative law in a search to find cost-effective, creative solutions to disputes.
The Firm also knows that some cases must go to trial. In 2016, Keith Lichtman was lead counsel in a federal lawsuit that resulted in one of the largest jury verdicts in Georgia for that year being awarded to his client.
Keith’s experience and results for clients explain why many lawyers and others throughout the southeastern United States regularly ask him to serve as a mediator to help them resolve their most complex matters.
Keith Lichtman is a trained and registered mediator (GA) and board-certified construction attorney (FL). He has mediated and litigated hundreds of complex matters for various clients over his 16 year career. Keith is licensed to practice law in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina.
As a result of voting by other mediators and attorneys, Keith has been selected for the last five years as a Rising Star and Georgia Super Lawyer. Less than 5% of mediators and attorneys are selected for these awards. Georgia Trend Legal Elite has also named him one of the state’s best practitioners.
Keith earned his undergraduate and law degrees from The University of Alabama, and clerked for the Hon. Gregory Shaw, of Alabama’s Court of Criminal Appeals. Prior to founding The Lichtman Firm, he was an equity partner of an award-winning regional commercial law and litigation firm, and managed that firm’s Atlanta office.
In January 2018, Keith was one of a select group of mediators and attorneys chosen to participate in the Negotiation Masters Class at Harvard Law School.
