In 1992, we formed the Atlanta, Georgia law firm of Slappey & Sadd, LLC to represent individuals in serious personal injury and wrongful death claims and to handle other cases in trial for people in need. We began our legal careers in 1986-87 in large, well- respected corporate and insurance defense firms in Atlanta. We were fortunate to gain invaluable experience over the last 25 plus years as attorneys before starting our own law firm, which is devoted to taking only serious and clearly valid cases involving personal injury, wrongful death and other cases involving substantial loss.
We are absolutely dedicated to being the best personal injury lawyers in Atlanta. We realize there are many Atlanta personal injury attorneys to choose from, and work every day to make the choice clear and comfortable for our clients by providing thoughtful and experienced professionalism to our work.
We take great care in selecting our cases. We consider any frivolous lawsuit or frivolous defense as a serious affront to the judicial system. Consequently, although we are honored to review hundreds of cases a year, we only accept the few that we know in our hearts and minds are valid and demand justice. By limiting the number of cases we take, we are able to handle each case with personal attention and professional experience we have gained over the years.
We personally handle all cases we accept. We believe it is important to have a strong relationship with our clients so that we can fully understand the facts of each case, and be in the best position to pursue the interests of our clients with intelligence and well-aimed strategies. As a result of our approach, we have developed lasting professional and sometimes personal relationships with the people and families we have been privileged to represent.
