About me

I am a lawyer who represents people for injuries or death that result from the negligence of others.  I am in solo practice in Decatur and have been for 20 years.  I am happy to travel to visit those who cannot come to me due to their injuries and I have handled cases all over Atlanta,  north Georgia and beyond.  In my practice, I strive never to have so many cases that I cannot effectively handle every one.  I don't do any advertising (other than my website) and don't even want my clients to feel like a number.  I am easy to reach on the phone and have a small staff consisting usually of just a receptionist, my paralegal (Anne) and myself.  We pride ourselves on providing outstanding personalized service to our clients and have an excellent record at trial and at resolving cases out of court,  Please call for a free consultation.

  • William Michael Maloof Jr.

    Mr. Ozcomert and I work in the same building. He is an excellent attorney. Whenever I have a question regarding a civil matter I immediately turn to Steve. He is not only an excellent lawyer but a wonderful human being. He volunteers his time to worthy causes. He has helped me in my early years as an attorney, and I hope that I will maintain a relationship with him for the rest of my legal career. He is a Georgia Super Lawyer and I refer all of my civil cases to him with the understanding they are in good hands. I endorse this lawyer.
