About Gerald Abdalla Jr
Jerry graduated magna cum laude from the University of Mississippi in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and English. His undergraduate work earned him acceptance into Phi Kappa Phi, the highest academic honor awarded by the University of Mississippi. He obtained his Juris Doctor in 2003 from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he graduated cum laude and was ranked 14th in a class of 134 students. He received the Outstanding Student Award for making the highest grade in Torts, Wills and Estates and Fifth Amendment Taking. He was also a member of the Moot Court Board and a regional finalist for the prestigious White House Fellows Program. Jerry started his legal career at Butler, Snow, O’Mara, Stevens & Cannada, PLLC, where he defended clients in personal injury, mass tort and product liability litigation. While at the firm, he was appointed a Special Prosecutor to handle murder cases for the State of Mississippi. U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton recognized Jerry's work as a Special Prosecutor and appointed him as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi. His time as a federal prosecutor was devoted to prosecuting serious criminal offenses, including bank and postal robberies, felons in possession of firearms, identity theft, embezzlement and bank fraud. Building on his courtroom experience as a prosecutor, Jerry embarked on his own legal practice and dedicated his time to securing compensation for injury victims and their families. Since founding Abdalla Law, PLLC, Jerry has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for his clients, handling cases involving car and 18-wheeler wrecks, mesothelioma, wrongful death, worker’s compensation, nursing home abuse and personal injury. His cases have resulted in recoveries of $2,140,000 for a mesothelioma victim, $500,000 for asbestosis victims, $150,000 for a wrongful death victim and $50,000 for a dog bite victim.
