Whitney Lay Greene is a civil litigation attorney, practicing primarily in the fields of General Liability and Workers' Compensation defense. She works on behalf of one of the World’s largest retail organizations in the areas of transportation, premises liability, product liability, and professional negligence claims. Mrs. Greene serves clients who manage a high volume of cases, handling files from the initial complaint through final resolution. She has significant experience positioning cases for dismissal on summary judgment and other cost-effective resolution options. In addition, she has taken and defended dozens of depositions (including medical and non-medical experts), handled numerous mediations, and represented clients at both the trial and appellate level. Mrs. Greene routinely provides pre-suit strategic advice to avoid litigation, and assists clients in developing strategies for efficiently and effectively resolving claims at the earliest stage.

While in law school, Mrs. Greene was extremely active in Georgia Law’s advocacy program, competing in both moot court and mock trial. She was the winner of the 2010 Richard B. Russell moot court competition, and went on to win multiple brief and oralist awards.

Mrs. Greene is also active in her local community. In 2015, she graduated from “Leadership Glynn,” a prestigious program that provides a diverse group of existing and emerging leaders with a unique opportunity to experience the many facets of Glynn County to develop informed leaders and channel their ideas and experiences toward community resources, issues and concerns to help direct the future of the Brunswick and Glynn County areas. She also serves on the board of Symphony Society, which is the fundraising arm of the Coastal Symphony of Georgia.
