Personal Injury Case
The law office was very helpful in getting me a settlement in a motor vehicle accident which resulted in two surgeries and the the at fault driver was underinsured. They negotiated well with my insurance company USAA to get the best possible settlement. Highly recommend them!

Excellent job providing me top quality legal service
Thanks to Lynn, Robert, and their staff for an excellent job handling my most difficult motor vehicle accident case that other local lawyers refused to accepted. Lynn always took time to call to informed me of the difficult challenges our case face and the not so difficult ones. She never let me down and i am proud to say Robert Katz and his firm did a great job and they know they are one phone call away in the event I need their service again. Thanks Robert and Lynn for being there for me when the odds was written against me. Your firm gave me hope and a wonderful outcome. We beat the odds!!

Attorney Katz is the best
I was driving a tractor trailer that over turned. I didn't go to the hospital after the accident as I thought that my injuries were not serious as they turned out to be. No other attorney would take my case, all the ambulance chasers saw my case and ran for the hills. Rob Katz knew that my case would be complex and take some time. Rob Katz stayed the course, and ended up bringing the trucking company from Chicago and a metal company from Kentucky to the table to pay out in excess of $300K for medical, loss wages, pain, and suffering. Give your case a personalized touch and allow Attorney Katz and his staff to serve you. Trust me, there is not a legal professional with more experience, more talent, and desire to be your advocate to get you the settlement that you deserve.

Highly recommended!
The service provided by this lawyer far exceeded my expectations and he made sure the right party was held accountable and made them responsible for their reckless action. I am very grateful for Bryant Mildenhall's help and I highly recommend his services.

Milden-Hall of Excellence
I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to our attorney, Briant Mildenhall, for his outstanding representation. He saw the merits of our case and gave our case the attention it needed to be successful. We were awarded the most we could have been awarded in our case and I believe because of his (and his firm's) commitment to our needs it ended the best it could have under the circumstances. I will definitely know who to turn to if I should ever need a lawyer in the future, though hopefully not. Thank you again, Briant! You were very professional and courteous to my wife and I each and every visit. Your patience and level-headedness were our allies during this time. We'd just like to add a good luck and prosperous law career, Sir.

Shoe store hell
Mr. Katz and his legal team did an excellent job representing my wife and me in a case that involved my wife tripping over a wire basket that was placed on the floor in front of the checkout counter of a local shoe store. My wife sustained serious injuries to her wrist, elbow and back, each requiring surgery, along with multiple other minor injuries. Although there was video evidence of my wife tripping on the basket that was intentionally placed in front of the counter by shoe store employees, the insurance company's representing the shoe store would not admit liability and would not pay for my wife's medical bills or pain and suffering. Mr. Katz filed suit on our behalf. Afterwards, he and his team began preparing for a potential jury trail. This process involved identifying any/all potential witnesses and taking depositions; talking to and taking depositions of the doctors that performed surgery; identifying and talking to potential expert witnesses; and preparing charts and visual aids to be used at trial or mediation. During this time we were kept informed of where we were in this process and of any updates to the case. After a period of time, the case did go to mediation; not once but twice. The first time, it very quickly became apparent to Mr. Katz that the insurance company was not there to make any kind of settlement that would be remotely acceptable. We wrapped up and several months later they requested that we try again. This time the outcome was much better. Due to Mr. Katz's negotiating skills and persistence, we came to a settlement that was fair and agreeable to all. This whole process was long and often frustrating. However, due to Mr. Katz and his legal team, we made it through with an outcome that made it worth while.

Excellent law firm
They kept me updated on everything that was going on with my case. He was very personable and professional. I would recommend this law firm to anyone. If you can't make it to him he would come to you that's what he did with my case. Thank you for everything you did for me. John

Very satisfied client
After falling over 30’onto a concrete floor, I suffered severe internal injuries, including a perforated small intestine. After many visits to the hospital, the doctors never diagnosed the holes in my intestine, which allowed bodily waste to enter other parts of my body. Soon after, my body became septic and I had to spend over six months in the hospital. Overall, I accrued over $1 million in medical bills. On my behalf, Rob filed a lawsuit against the general surgeon, radiologist, and hospital. He deposed witnesses and experts all around the country, visiting Ohio, Colorado, Texas, Michigan, and of course, Atlanta. Even with his busy schedule, Rob always kept me updated on the status of the case. Where a big decision had to be made, he would explain my options as well as the difficulties associated with each, and together we would decide which course to pursue. I was, and still am, extremely satisfied with Rob’s work and with the outcome of my case. Rob strives to be there for his clients, and I was no exception. Even later, when I would call Rob with legal questions unrelated to the case, he was always there to answer them. I would happily recommend Rob to anyone who is seeking legal assistance after suffering a severe injury.
