About Me

 


I am a skilled personal injury attorney who practices Georgia personal injury attorney law and North Carolina personal injury law. I have earned significant recoveries for my clients, including several million and multi-million dollar rewards.


 


I began my career in a large Atlanta law firm where I gained extensive experience defending insurance companies, trucking companies, auto accident defendants and retail business establishments for both injury and commercial litigation cases.


 


In 2000 I started my own law firm, focusing my practice on the representation of individuals who have suffered a personal injury. Due in part to my background in handling insurance matters pertaining to personal injury claims prior to starting my firm, I have excelled at reaching positive results for my clients in personal injury matters.


 


Because of my insurance defense background, I have a strong grasp of what is necessary to achieve a good outcome with an insurance company in personal injury matters. Unlike many lawyers who are content to seek an early settlement of a case, I prepare each case for trial in an effort to maximize the recovery for the client.


 


I have been both lead counsel and co-counsel in a number of significant jury trials in both Georgia and North Carolina. I have experience in many areas of personal injury, as I have tried cases involving wrongful death, catastrophic injury and permanent disability.


 


My professional accomplishments have been recognized by my peers. In 2003 I was given an AV rating by Martindale Hubbell, which is the highest peer rating for legal ability and ethical standards.
