  • John Andrew Houghton

    I had the opportunity to work as an associate attorney for Buck Rogers for nearly 5 years. During that time, I learned a tremendous amount about trucking collision and commercial accident litigation. Buck is a highly-esteemed trial lawyer who has obtained seven figure jury verdicts across the state of Georgia for clients injured or killed as a result of the carelessness or recklessness of others. Buck is a tireless advocate for his clients and consistently maximizes the value of every claim, recovered through verdict or settlement. He maintains a good rapport with opposing lawyers, and is well-respected by attorneys across the southeast. His law practice is focused on tractor-trailer collisions, and he has a keen understanding of all state/federal regulations and requirements these motor carrier defendants must comply with. I strongly endorse this lawyer, and recommend him to anyone who has suffered a catastrophic loss as the result of a trucking or commercial vehicle accident.
