After hours appointments availed on a case by case basis.
I chose to practice in the personal injury area of law because I believe it was the best area in which I could serve individuals. In other areas of law your work generally involves representation of large corporations.
I think it is extremely important for clients to educate themselves on legal issues. Unfortunately, very often the resources are not available to a client to do so in the absence of hiring qualified legal counsel.
We are glad to review any documents prepared by clients to assist us in evaluating their legal matters.
We are glad to speak to clients who have an interest in representing themselves so they can become more familiar with their legal matter(s).
I served as a law clerk for Judge Dorothy Beasley on the Georgia Court of Appeals. I then served as a staff attorney to Superior Court Trial Judge James H. Weeks. Upon leaving my employment with Judge Weeks, I became employed as an attorney with Gorbey, Reeves, Moraitakis & Whiteman, an AV rated insurance defense law firm. I then founded my current firm now know as Katz, Stepp & Miller.
I have a history of regularly doing volunteer work outside of the practice of law, and believe this has provided me with a better understanding of the personal challenges of others in their day to day lives.
I have a very strong background in litigation matters.Personal interests:
