Jeb Butler and Darren Tobin have left large, established plaintiffs firms to start their own, Butler Tobin. Butler was at Butler, Wooten & Fryhofer, where his father, Jim Butler, is a name partner, and Tobin was at Childers, Schuleter & Smith.

Butler said he enjoyed working with his father. “I love my dad very much and love working with him,” he said. “I wanted to do what my father did 35 years ago—start my own firm. Probably every plaintiffs’ lawyer who has ever walked has thought about it.”
