Orr & Brown LLP

Law Firm in Gainesville, GA

Firm Overview

A Trial Law Firm Specializing in Personal Injury, Business Litigation, and Employment and Labor Law Since 1981.

Orr & Brown LLP is a trial law firm with offices in Gainesville, and Atlanta, Georgia. Our North Georgia lawyers have one mission: to aggressively represent our clients' interests and resolve whatever dispute they have. We have decades of experience representing people who have suffered serious physical injuries, the loss of a loved one through wrongful death, or other serious harm. Our Gainesville, and Atlanta attorneys represent those who have been injured in trucking and automobile accidents, wrecks, and collisions, by defective and dangerous products, or while on the premises or property of another. The firm also handles cases involving commercial, business, and insurance disputes, borrower-side loan litigation and arbitration, employment discrimination and discharges, unpaid overtime, governmental liability, civil rights, and a wide variety of civil disputes. The lawyers at Orr & Brown have developed a deserved reputation for taking and succeeding on cases with difficult legal obstacles that other law firms in North Georgia will not tackle.

The lawyers at Orr & Brown work hard to earn our clients' trust in everything that we do. Establishing this trust requires communication, and we limit our caseload to make sure that we are always in a position to promptly communicate with and work on our clients' files. If a client has a question, he calls, and an attorney will almost always be available to speak with the client. If no attorney is available, then the client's call will be returned promptly.

The firm was founded by Senior Partner Wyc Orr in 1981 after 10 years of prior litigation experience. Wyc's daughter, Kris Orr (now Kris Orr Brown) joined the practice in 1995. The firm's lawyers have tried cases in no less than 28 Georgia counties and have extensive litigation experience in federal district court as well. The firm's lawyers have earned substantial victories for our clients across the state.
