About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

For twenty years, I worked for a well-respected Atlanta law firm practicing insurance defense law.  In 2013, I began exclusively representing injured people against insurance companies and other people and companies that negligently caused injuries and damages.  My experience handling cases for insurance companies provides an excellent background for now representing injured clients.  I provide all clients with my personal cell phone number so they can reach me any time.  I have tried and won cases in Georgia state and federal courts - including cases where millions of dollars were at stake - and I have argued cases to the Georgia Court of Appeals and Georgia Supreme Court.  

I have been married for twenty-one years and have two teenaged children, one of whom is a sophomore at The University of Georgia and the other is a Junior in high school.  I coached them both in basketball for over ten years.  I previously served as a Board Member on the Alpharetta High School Dugout Club, which is the baseball organizing and booster club for the high school.  Previously, I served for ten years on the Board of the Alpharetta YMCA where I focused on fundraising to help families and children in need.

Simply the best
Chris Ziegler is an amazing attorney and advocate. But he’s an even more amazing person. There are lots of attorneys out there who can do a decent job, but Chris has a unique set of legal and personal skills that set him apart. Trustworthy. Knowledgeable. Dependable. Aggressive. Can not recommend him highly enough!

Best guy to have on your side, period.
Chris is an empathetic, knowledgeable, full service professional. He’s the kind of guy who will take what is bound to have been a painful incident, and make it less miserable for you and your family. He focuses on making sure you’re okay, and doing what’s necessary to get better, while he handles the rest of it. My family and I are very grateful to him for resolving our case for us.

Great lawyer , awesome advocate!
Chris is a great lawyer who worked tirelessly on my case . Initially the insurance companies wanted to pay me pennies and no medical fees on my case , even trying to make me assume partial fault . Chris was able to get my medical bills paid and me compensated . He was proactive and reachable ( never had a issue getting him on the phone or via email ). I would absolutely recommend him to others , and I would use him again if the service is needed .

Attention to details was key
After an accident it's easy to fall prey to lawyers who are more interested in gathering numbers of clients than the unique needs of each one. With Mr. Ziegler, I never felt my case was not as important as others in his workload. I never made a phone call that was not answered quickly, or sent an email or text that was not responded to. What I appreciated most was the advice he provided at the beginning which allowed my husband and I to develop an effective strategy, mitigate mistakes I would have made had I not had effective legal assistance, and most importantly stay realistic about the outcome. It is evident that Mr. Ziegler has lengthy experience on both sides of the table when it comes to personal injury litigation. That was invaluable. His advice was not always what I wanted to hear, but truly reflected the reality of the situation I was in. I was very, very pleased with the outcome. And while I hope to never be in another accident that requires litigation, I do know who I would turn to for help.

Excellent Attorney
I worked with Chris for over 8 years and always found him to be a fantastic attorney. He is quick to pick-up the issues in any case presented, his knowledge of the law is unparalleled, and he has an ability to explain complex legal issues in ways that clients, opposing counsel, and the court can easily understand.

Must Hire!!
I personally consulted with Chris Ziegler concerning a recent incident and he was extremely knowledgable and proactive. He reacted extremely quickly and my case was settled the same day that he sent the demand letter! I highly recommend Chris~

Phenomenal Attorney Phenomenal Results
Attorney Zeigler came highly recommended. Upon our first meeting, up to the case closing Atty Zeigler displayed true professionalism and sincere care for me as his client. I was involved in a head on collision ~ I said that to say, there were days I could barely care for myself ~ it seems like those were the days he would call with a word of encouragement. The case extended over a year, Attorney Zeigler kept me fully informed on everything that was transpiring. I can't give him enough accolades because it can't or wouldn't capture his heart or his hard work for me on this case. I pray I never need him again for any injuries, but if so ~ HANDS DOWN HE WOULD BE MY 1st CHOICE and the only Attorney I would call.
