Review John Mays

About Me

John A. Mays holds bachelor’s degree in Sociology and graduated magna cum laude, with honors, and a juris doctorate from Kennesaw University. During his time in law school, he gained invaluable experience and insight while working for the Macon Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s office, in the narcotics division. It was there he began to develop his passion for litigation, as well as his courtroom experience.

Since joining Schneider Hammers, his courtroom experience has enriched his own skills but also has contributed significantly to the firm’s success. John is a devoted personal injury attorney and focuses on helping others on a personal level, especially those who have been hurt due to negligence or in the workplace. He works with integrity, meticulously planning out his case preparations for his clients in the best way possible. John is admitted to practice Georgia courts, Court of Appeals, the Georgia Supreme Court, and the U.S. District for the Northern District of Georgia.
