About Me

Mr. Warncke received his Bachelor of Business Administration, Magna Cum Laude, at Georgia State University in 1988.  He received his law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law, Cum Laude, in 1991.  While in law school, Mr. Warncke was selected as one of three students to represent UGA in the American College of Trial Lawyers National Moot Court Competition.  The three member team took second place  nationwide in brief writing.  The team also advanced to the quarter finals in the national oral argument competition in New York City.


 


Upon graduating from law school, Mr. Warncke began working as an associate at Dietrick, Evans, Scholz & Williams, and became partner on January 1, 1998.  In 2011, Mr. Warncke became a name partner in Evans, Scholz, Williams & Warncke, LLC.


Mr. Warncke has developed a niche representing insurance policyholders in claims involving long term disability, life insurance, and health insurance arenas.  He has handled hundreds of claims under both federal ERISA law and under Georgia state bad faith insurance law.   He is frequently invited to lecture and write professionally in his field of expertise, and is routinely associated by other attorneys to assist them in this highly complex legal environment.


 


Mr. Warncke’s practice also includes handling serious personal injury claims arising from work-related accidents, automobile collisions, and tractor trailer collisions.

  • Lloyd Noland Bell

    Jeff is one of the top employee benefits lawyers in Georgia and is a leader in this area of the law. He is often called upon to speak at conventions and seminars and share his expertise. If I was in need of an employee benefits lawyer, Jeff is the one I would turn to. I highly recommend him to anyone who believes they have been wrongly denied the benefits under their disability insurance policy.
