About Me

My name is Will Cummings and I am a native of Cedartown, Georgia.  I became interested in the law at an early age as my father was a trial attorney.  As a small town lawyer, he represented clients ranging anywhere from injured workers, car wreck victims, banks and railroads.  Following a successful and enriching trial practice career, my father was subequently appointed to the bench as a Superior Court judge by then Governor Joe Frank Harris.  I had the benefit of discussing the law on a daily basis with the added benefit of picking my father's brain about the particular cases he oversaw.


I attended law school at Mercer University from 1993-1996.  Following law school, I was fortunate enough to land a Superior Court clerkship in Perry, Georgia, for the Houston Judicial Circuit.  I served under three well respected judges: George F. Nunn, Jr.; L.A. "Buster" McConnell, Jr.; and Edward D. Lukemire.  Subsequently, I was hired by the Chairman of the State Board of Workers' Compensation, Hon. Harrill Dawkins, to work as a Staff Attorney, during which time I obtained certification as a mediator and performed numerous mediations involving a variety of workers' compensation issues, in addition to performing extensive legal research for the Appellate Division.


I then joined a prestigious law firm in Atlanta to focus my legal practice on workers' compensation.  During this time, I published numerous articles in the firm's client journal, served as a faculty member for Lorman Educational Services and the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation Annual Seminar in Atlanta, and was involved in numerous workers' compensation hearings.


On January 1, 2005, I, along with my partner Tray Middlebrooks, opened the law firm of Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLP.  Our sole dedication is to injured workers and their family members.  We take this role seriously and are able to furnish the aggressive representation necessary to move a workers' compensation claim from start to finish.  I am always available to speak with my clients and appreciate the relationships we are able to establish during my representation.  The greatest reward is a very satisfied client at the conclusion of my representation.


Outside of my law practice, I spend the majority of my time with my wife and two boys.  My other interests include college football, traveling, and hunting.
