  • Roger C. Wilson

    Phil Henry is the gold standard.No one stands above him among Georgia (or any other) lawyers in the areas of medical malpractice specifically and personal injury/wrongful death generally. There is no lawyer whom I would turn to before him for any case of my own in any of these areas. In terms of expertise, experience, diligence, results, and integrity, he is second to none. I have benefited from his expertise and kindness plenty in my own practice, as have very many other lawyers. I know that my view of him is universally shared in our profession. Most important of all, he is that now all too infrequent combination of a lawyer of the highest expertise and abilities, and a true gentleman. In my experience there are very few like him. I highly commend him to any potential client.
