How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

It is very interesting.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I am a proponent of self-education. However, I believe that individuals who do so must approach a resolution to their problems with the knowledge that they are not trained in the law, and should be cautious in finalizing their attempt without assistance from a professional.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I would be willing to review such documents but, only in an in-person consultation with such persons.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am unwilling to coach clients who want to represent themselves.

Willis H. Blacknall III

I began my law career as a law clerk to a Georgia Superior Court Judge in 1978. Following that, I was an assistant District Attorney for the Waycross Judicial Circuit. I have been in private practice since 1980 with other lawyers in Waycross, Georgia, Folkston, Georgia and Homerville, Georgia. I have been a trial lawyer and lead counsel in hundreds of cases in insurance law, automobile accident law, workers compensation law, and social security law and bankruptcy law.

Life experience: My mother raised me and believed in the "golden rule": "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". That is the creed I have lived my life by.

Knowledge assisted by patience.

Personal interests:

Swimming and reading.
