I received my undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Georgia as a First Honor Graduate. I also received my law degree with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2004. I joined Perkins Law Firm, L.L.P. after graduation and have devoted my career to representing injured workers and veterans in Workers’ Compensation and Veterans Benefits claims. I am accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs to represent veterans in veterans benefit claims.
Of particular interest to me are catastrophic workers' compensation claims and TDIU (or "total disability based on individual unemployability") claims in veterans disability. I have years of experience and contacts within the vocational expert community to prove these cases and successfully attain benefits for clients who are disabled from all competitive employment in the national economy.
I am a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association, Workers’ Compensation Claimants’ Lawyers, and the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar of Georgia. I am a founding board member of the West Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association and have previously served as past President of that group. In 2014, I was recognized by The National Trial Lawyers in their "Top 100 Trial Lawyers."

In that capacity, Travis has provided the association strong leadership in the right direction which has benefited the community as a whole.
