Personal Injury / Auto Accidents
If you have been injured and suffered physical and/or financial damage due to someone else's negligence, I can help. I will work to get you the maximum amount of money that you are entitled to and fight for your interests. I represent individuals who have been hurt due to the negligence of an individual, a business, or the government. If you have suffered an injury, medical bills, lost income, and/or pain, I can help you get paid to compensate for the harm done to you as well as help find you excellent medical care for your injuries. Examples of types of cases I handle include:
Motor Vehicle / Car Accidents
Slip and Fall
Animal Bites and Attacks
Frequently Asked Question: "How much do you charge?"
I handle all my personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. Doing a case on a "contingency fee" means that I am paid an agreed percentage of any settlement I am able to obtain on your behalf. You never pay me anything throughout the handling of your case and you do not pay me any hourly fee at any time. I am paid an agreed upon percentage of any settlement or verdict that I help you receive from the opposing party. I only get paid if I obtain a settlement or jury verdict on your behalf. If for any reason I am unable to get a settlement in your favor, you never owe me any money for trying.
I offer contingency percentages lower than the industry average. The average contingency fee in Georgia is 33% for a settlement without filing a lawsuit and 40% for a settlement or verdict after filing a lawsuit. In comparison, I typically agree that my fee will be 30% for a settlement without filing a lawsuit and 39% for cases in which I file a lawsuit. My business and insurance background are helpful when negotiating settlements with insurance companies and dealing with claims adjusters and opposing attorneys. Please read some reviews and contact me to discuss your case.

I urge all prospective clients to read some of my reviews and then contact me.
