Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death and Birth Injury only. Specialization is important for all complex matters. So, we only accept a small number of cases to get the best results for you.

Three member firm focuses on select cases in which the injury, to life or property, is significant.

Trucking Accident

Atlanta Truck Accident Attorney

Due to the sheer size of a commercial truck, it is not uncommon for serious injuries or fatalities to occur in an accident. When our clients suspect that their loved one died due to negligence, we perform a thorough investigation of the accident. We review the police report and other documentation verifying what happened. We use our research skills to find out if negligence was attributed to the other driver or other factors. Some common causes of commercial truck accidents are:

Driver inattention
Driver fatigue
Tire blowout
Lack of truck maintenance
Cargo not securely loaded and attached

Auto Accident

Medical Malpractice

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

No. Permanent injury and wrongful death cases, due to motor vehicle collisions or medical malpractice cases should only be handled by an attorney.
In matters which an injury healed quickly, are matters that people can and should handle themselves.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

Unlike the large firms, the attorney you hire is the attorney that will work on the case. Certainly some work is done by associates and paralegals, but the partners at KGW are intimately involved in the day to day issues of your case.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We prepare every case for a jury trial. Why? Because this leads to the best results. The insurance companies settle with us, because they know we are prepared to go to trial. This follows old saying: if you want peace, prepare for war.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

KGW is active in the legal community, playing critical leadership roles in the bar organizations, speaking to law school classes, and in continuing legal education.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Krause Golomb & Witcher LLC distinguishes itself by bringing creative and practical solutions to your legal problems. Our approach is to fully understand your case and aggressively advocate on your behalf from day one until your case is satisfactorily and fully concluded. Your concerns are our concerns and it's our privilege to serve you.

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

We believe that the more involved the client the better the outcome. We spend significant time in working with our clients, particularly listening to our clients so that we can develop the case, allowing the clients to be informed about their decisions, and ultimately, maximizing the recovery.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

It depends on the types of documents.

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

No. There are some great resources available on the web regarding self-representation. Roger Krause was appeared on the Layman's Lawyer Radio Show on 790am on the topic of how to prepare your case in magistrate court.
