Thorough and Strategic Worker's Comp Attorney
Paul Jenkins was an excellent Worker's Comp Attorney. He made sure to fight for me in a very strategic and detailed manner. The opposing side wanted to play hardball. However, Paul Jenkins was patient and took all the steps necessary to ensure that the other side knew he wasn't there to play games but to fight for his client. Overall, Paul Jenkins communicated in a clear and understandable fashion. His leadership qualities and expertise were superb, and I highly recommend Paul Jenkins for your legal needs.

Best Workman's Comp Lawyer EVER
After a year of getting no where with my work injury claim, I contacted Mr. Paul Jenkins. He came out fighting tenaciously for me and with his thorough knowledge of physician's panel selection irregularities resulted in me getting a very generous settlement of which I am well pleased. Paul Jenkins is the workman's comp lawyer you must have to fight for you. I was so fortunate to have such an experienced and resourceful attorney representing me.

Workers Comp
My father had a workers Comp case and we weren’t sure who to go with for an attorney since we’ve never been in a workers Comp situation. Thankfully someone recommended Mr. Jenkins’s at Morrison and Hughes and thank God that they did. I can confirm that this is the man to ask for when you’re in need of help not only did he help us settle the case, but his knowledge and connection with doctors were one of the biggest help. We had several questions and he was always there to answer them. It’s safe to say that he isn’t an attorney who is just big talk to get your money like the advertisement on billboards. Instead he let his actions speak for itself which is even better. Therefore if anyone needs help go to Morrison and Hughes they get the job done.

I received a serious injury at work. My employer was trying to contradict it. I hired Paul. He helped me ALL the way through a trying time. He won my case and got me what I deserved. I reccomend him to everyone. It was a tough time but without a great lawyer it would have been really bad. Thank you so much Paul.

An Aggressive and Smart Litigator
I recently went through an exhausting and difficult legal battle with a workers' compensation case that lasted the span of a year, and I was up a major and very well-known company. As someone with very little knowledge of the legal field, I knew I needed strong legal counsel. Fortunately, a magistrate judge told a family friend that I should call the law firm of Morrison and Hughes. That's where I found Paul Jenkins, the attorney who took my case. He is extremely professional, very transparent, and answered every question I ever had with the greatest level of detail. He was also timely with email responses, especially for a lawyer with a busy job with many other cases. If you want a great lawyer to defend you against powerful interests, Paul Jenkins is the guy you want. I am very happy and fortunate to have found an attorney so experienced and aggressive!

Very positive experience
We were referred to Paul for help with a social security disability case. My husband and I did not know even where to start to get information ready for a hearing. Paul was a wonderful help. He led us through every step with patience, expertise and knowledge that ultimately gave us a positive outcome. Extremely grateful to Paul for his direction through this somewhat intimidating process.

Paul Jenkins deserves some kind of medal for his hard work and knowledge. I went from being completely neglected to actually having health care. I doubt I'd have been able to play with my children the same I do today without the help they provided to get the health care I received. I can't thank Paul enough for the hours he put in on my case. The world needs more people like Paul, especially trained attorneys like him. Again, thank you for your help!

Best Lawyer I have ever met!
The Work Comp insurance company was refusing to pay months of overdue checks. They even tried to get the doctor to change his mind about the work restrictions I needed after surgery. Attorney Jenkins put a stop to all their BS! He calmed my nerves, and then he set both the doctor and the insurance company straight!! He fought to get me thousands of dollars in backpay, and negotiated an excellent settlement on my behalf. I am so relieved and happy I made the decision to hire this lawyer. I would highly recommend Mr. Jenkins and Morrison and Hughes to anyone who needs a fighter in their corner after a serious work accident!

Simply the best at what he does
I've been very fortunate to work with Paul for over a year. The breadth of his experience is nothing short of phenomenal. He has personally handled well over 1,000 SSDi cases through the entire U.S. with an unparalleled level of success for his clients. Whenever one of my personal injury clients looks like they will need to consider SSDI, Paul is the first one I call. Further, whenever another attorney who knows me calls and asks a question about SSDI, I refer them to Paul for advice and guidance. It's a rare treat to work alongside and have access to such a true subject matter expert, and I recommend him wholeheartedly and without hesitation. Around the firm we often joke "better call Paul," but in so joking we are absolutely serious. If you, a loved one or family friend is in need of advice, guidance and representation with respect to dealing with Social Security Disability requirements you could not make a better choice nor have a better attorney,

Talented and Aggressive
Social Security considered me “young” under their regulations, which made my case difficult to prove despite so many debilitating medical problems. But Attorney Jenkins moved mountains for me. Over the course of two years, he PERSONALLY saw my case through from start to finish, and worked with me to put more than two thousand pages of medical records into evidence. He works like a machine! Unbelievably efficient, knowledgeable, and aggressive! The day before my hearing was scheduled, I learned that it got called off. Turns out that Mr. Jenkins convinced the Judge I was disabled with strong written arguments he submitted prior to my court date. If you need Social Security Disability, don’t hire a lawyer just because they look good on a billboard or on the side of a bus. This is a highly specialized area, and Attorney Paul Jenkins is the real deal! He’s a name that’s known and respected among Atlanta Social Security Judges. He’s been doing this for 15 years, and I would say it really shows! He will tell you exactly how it is, and If he decides to take your case, count yourself lucky because you couldn’t be in better hands.

Workers comp attorney
I got into a work accident back in May 2019 and was preferred to Morrison and Hughes for my workers comp case to a lawyer here by the name of Mr.Paul Jenkins. Was by far the best lawyer I could’ve got for this type of case I mean he was amazing from day 1 with making sure all my concerns with appts anything doctor related he made sure he got it done. Now we have approached the end and he got me more than a fair settlement in my case and I could not be happier with his services I recommend anybody who come across this firm with a worker’s compensation case Paul Jenkins is your MAN.

He’s The Gold Standard for Social Security Disability
Retaining Paul Jenkins of Morrison & Hughes Law Firm was the best decision I could have made for my SSDI claim. Paul has a commanding knowledge of Social Security Disability, and his thoroughness is almost mind-blowing!  Paul spent many hours analyzing my claim file, answered all my questions, and kept me posted with all updates as the process played out.  Paul spent well over 3 hours preparing me for the hearing before the Administrative Law Judge, and I felt as ready as could be. The judge was on the fence, but I believe Paul gave him the convincing he needed to rule “fully favorably”!  Paul summed up what must have been 2000 pages of medical evidence in a way that the judge could see how all the pieces fit together.  He stood up for me in a strong and confident way, and it was clear how much the judge respected him, too.  I would highly recommend Attorney Paul Jenkins to anyone seeking SSDI!  You can forget the rest because I’m telling you Paul’s the best.

This Attorney Saved My Life
When I hurt my neck badly at work and needed serious surgery that the Workers Comp insurance company refused to cover, I didn't know what to do. Attorney Paul Jenkins at Morrison and Hughes proved to be a godsend to me. Everybody at this law firm puts people first. They all really care about getting their clients the time and attention they need, and they stop at nothing to make the insurance companies do the right thing. Knowing how badly I was hurting, Mr. Jenkins arranged for a first class surgeon to see me weeks ahead of all his other patients. I would have been paralyzed from the neck down if Mr. Jenkins didn't act as quickly as he did. He is so very smart! He handled my case like the pro that he is, and even pushed hard to get me my settlement check before I lost my home! If you have a serious work injury, Mr. Jenkins and his team at Morrison & Hughes is the only call you need to make.
