2023 Southeastern Legal Awards

HBS Partners Adam Peoples, of the Asheville Office, and Andrew C. Knowlton, of the Birmingham office, have been recognized as “On the Rise” in the 2023 Southeastern Legal Awards.

Adam Peoples

Adam primarily defends doctors, lawyers, accountants, and engineers in negligence and ethics matters. His downtown Asheville practice also includes defending claims regarding general liability, governmental liability, civil rights, products liability, and transportation.

He has litigated hundreds of cases, including more than 900 hours of jury trial time, defending cases involving seven and eight-figure demands, lasting anywhere from three days to seven weeks long.

Andrew Knowlton

Andrew focuses his litigation practice on the defense of physicians, nurses, hospitals, and other health care providers. His practice also encompasses the defense of other personal injury and wrongful death claims, including trucking accidents and premises liability actions.

Andrew is a member of the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama (PARCA) Roundtable, DRI, the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association, the Birmingham Bar Association, and an inaugural member of the Judge James Edwin Horton Inn of Court.

“We have wonderful talent throughout all of our regional offices, and are proud to celebrate the recognition of that talent through Adam and Andrew,” said Alex Booth, managing partner of Hall Booth Smith.
