Thomas J. Andersen was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2015 in the field of real estate (Copyright 2014 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.) for the 8th time.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Trinity Hundredmark recently appeared as a legal analyst on Nancy Grace on HLN.
A criminal defense and family law attorney and Partner at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C., Trinity discussed the case of little Alexa Linboom, a 5-year old Tennessee girl who was forced to guzzle the grape soda and water after she took “one or two grape drinks” that belonged to her stepmother. She was allegedly force-fed so much liquid that it caused the sodium level in her body to go down and caused her brain to swell. She died as a result.
Trinity also discussed a case involving Sick Kids Hospital of Toronto, who allegedly overdosed a teenage boy with 7 drugs in 7 hours. These drugs were nearly life threatening and were given without any prior testing or blood work completed by the hospital and despite objections by the boys’ parents.

Patrick J. McDonough has appeared on Fox News as one of their Atlanta based legal analysts. Recently on Fox News, McDonough spoke on the issues surrounding revenge pornography. McDonough explained how currently there are civil remedies for victims, but that can be a costly endeavor and not available to most victims. McDonough did note the trend is for states to criminalize this behavior. First amendment advocates will surely challenge these statutes, but McDonough believes if the statutes are drafted narrowly they should withstand Supreme Court scrutiny. McDonough said the lesson is twofold: first, one should not take any uncompromising pictures of themselves and send them to current partners, and second, jaded ex-partners should think twice before posting these images.
