Making It Right Takes Perspective
Cameron “Cam” Tribble enjoys solving problems for people who need help.
Since joining the Barnes Law Group in 2009, Cam has focused on serious and catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases, consumer class actions, and other complex litigation. Some of Cam’s notable cases include high profile data breach cases; a multi-state case representing bank employees asserting wage-and-hour violations; class actions challenging cost of insurance rates; a class-action suit against a Georgia payday lender; and a nationwide class action suit representing Service members and their families in a Military Lending Act cases. However, Cam considers his most meaningful cases to be helping those impacted by serious injuries and wrongful deaths.
A graduate from the University Of Georgia School Of Law cum laude, Cam served as a Notes Editor for the Georgia Law Review. After law school, Cam was a federal court law clerk in the Northern District of Georgia, where he worked on all types of federal civil litigation. A “Double Dawg,” Cam obtained a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science also from the University of Georgia. In college, he interned for U.S. Representative Jim Marshall from Macon. Cam is a son of a lawyer and juvenile court judge in Dublin, Georgia, so he grew up appreciating the great responsibility that lawyers have for their communities and clients.
Cam is an active member of the legal community, having previously served as a member of the Magistrate Judge Merit Selection Panel for the Northern District of Georgia and as a panelist for the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism. Cam is a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, Cobb County Bar Association, Atlanta Bar Association, Atlanta Lawyers Club, the American Association for Justice, Public Justice, and the Federal Bar Association. Cam has served on the Board of Directors of Safepath Children’s Advocacy Center in Cobb County, Georgia, and has pro bono work for that organization and the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. Cam and his family are members of the Northside Drive Baptist Church in Atlanta.
Mr. Tribble is admitted to practice in all Georgia state trial and appellate courts.
