I had initially settled a case against my former employer with the EEOC on my own. However, the company continued to initiate harassing actions. I then hired Graham Scofield who represented me so that I would not have to directly correspond with my former employer any further. He informed me of my rights and advised me on how to proceed given my options. In the end, the employer backed off due to how effectively Mr. Scofield communicated his knowledge of the law and the next steps that would be taken if improper actions were pursued.
Mr. Scofield relieved a lot of the stress, anxiety and uncertainty that the situation caused by promptly and assertively handling all future communications between myself and the employer. I was very pleased to have Mr. Scofield as my attorney, and I would highly recommend him to others.

Had a situation at work that found me being unfairly targeted for wrongful termination. Mr. Scofield's actions on my behalf immediately halted the bullying and intimidation and what had been an extremely hostile work environment became somewhat pleasant as we came to terms. He got the employer to agree to as much as we could short of full litigation.
He is very thorough and I found his calm demeanor very helpful during a very stressful time

Mr Scofield helped me to turn a very bad situation with my former employer into a win for me. He is very knowledgeable about ADA issues, and helped me to navigate the negotiations with my employer. I am confident that he kept me from losing my job, and he was then able to negotiate a settlement quickly and efficiently. I always had the feeling that he cared about me as a person, not just as a client.

In June of 2013, I was involved in a motorcycle accident, which was no fault of mine. I am lucky to be alive, but sustained back injuries and scarring that will unfortunately last me a lifetime. For the first couple of months I was solely concerned with recovery, this was until the medical bills started coming in. It was at this time we retained Hornsby Law Firm, and it was at this time that some of the stress was taken off my shoulders. Graham Scofield was assigned our case. I can honestly say that I thought this would be a more difficult and stressful process. However, Mr. Scofield stayed so on top of my case that I would get updates from him before I even had the chance to email or call and ask for one. They guided me every step of the way, allowing me to have more time to focus on my recovery, as well as to learn how to deal with injuries that will never go away. They were able to get me the best settlement that I could have asked for. I truly believe that if we had gone with any other law firm, and been assigned any other lawyer, then this would not have been the case. Mr. Scofield, with the backing of Hornsby Law Firm fought for me. I am truly grateful, and recommend the firm, and specifically Mr. Scofield if you need any representation. They were tough, on top of things, and overall EFFECTIVE. You don't want to go anywhere else!

Graham Scofield was a pleasure to work with, he was always very quick to respond to any and all of my many questions I had throughout my ordeal. He was very knowledgeable, explaining things as the events unfolded. I would call on his services again if I am ever in need of an attorney. I recommend him highly!

On June 12th , 2013 I was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Following the accident, I attempted to work with the insurance companies but was soon frustrated with their antics. I decided to retain legal representation and interviewed several law firms. My intention was to retain the best educated attorney with proven results . It was also very important that he be accessible. I ultimately selected Graham Scofield.
From the onset Mr. Scofield was courteous, punctual, professional, accessible and very knowledgeable. As soon as I retained Mr. Scofield, I no longer had to deal with medical bill issues or insurance company antics. Literally, I communicated only with Graham. My case was not typical and required several different strategies, all of which Graham seem to be one step ahead of the insurance companies. For example, I was ask to participate in a phone interview by the insurance company. Graham ask that we meet and discuss possible questions. We met the day of the interview and Graham pointed out certain topics he would allow me to expand on and the areas he would not. Graham also provided a list of questions he thought could be ask based on my unique accident. His prepared list was spot on. As the case progressed Graham continually held the insurance companies to the letter of the law. If Graham's request had a timeline it was met by the insurance company or well documented that it wasn't met. At the conclusion of the case, I was well compensated! My research to select the best attorney did pay off!!
Basically, I have no doubt that I made the best choice in representation. If you pass on retaining Graham, it will be your loss. And I do not like to lose money!

Choosing Graham as my attorney was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Statistics were against me. Facing a Goliath with unlimited resources did not inspire much confidence either; however, in my circumstances he was just what I needed. He is a highly intelligent, resourceful, personable, qualified, fair person and was immediately responsive to every question and concern that I had. He was on top of every aspect of the case. I was treated with the utmost respect and consideration. Graham did win my case. I honestly do not feel that my outcome with most other attorneys would have been the same. I have absolutely no doubt that he will be one of the most sought after attorneys in Atlanta. I cannot express enough how fortunate I was to have Graham as my attorney.

Graham provide professional and detailed guidance on my severance agreement in a tight time window. He is excellent to work with and recommended for employment law issues.

Never having entered into the legal process, I was somewhat intimidated. My search for a suitable representative was widespread, and finding someone who had the knowledge and fortitude required for my case wasn't as easy as I thought. But then I was referred to Hornsby Law Group. After having contacted Mr. Scofield, I felt not only validated but like my situation mattered to someone who could help. There was not one point in the process that I felt I was alone, and he was always available to answer any questions and help make critical decisions. At each phase, I was a part of a team and had the best advice and representation. His knowledge, demeanor, and professionalism resulted in an outcome I had hoped to achieve.

He was very personable and understood my situation. He documented my complaints effectively and timely communicated to my employer as my attorney. Without his dedicated legal service, I had no way to get my severance pay I deserved. I trusted him to handle my case and he handled my case effectively according to the law.
