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.

Couldn't be happier with the outcome!!
I highly recommend Steve Ozcomert. My experience of over three years with him working on my personal injury case was always very positive in that I never had to wonder what the current status was. His two legal assistants, Anne and Tatum kept me well informed at all times. Over the years I have heard not-so-positive stories about attorneys not taking appropriate care of someone’s case with insurance companies and was concerned about who to go to when I found myself needing representation. I can’t say how fortunate I am to have had a recommendation to Steve by my chiropractor. We did end up in a jury trial because I just didn’t want to settle for less than I felt I deserved and Steve agreed and suggested same. So I witnessed Steve in the courtroom and WOW was I impressed! Not only did he not miss any of the important points, but he had visuals for the jury. Videos and poster boards with all the major arguments in plain view to accompany his verbal arguments. Extremely clever visuals I might add! I never once felt anything that I wanted said to be left out. In addition he interviewed all my potential witnesses and chose the most effective ones. He coached on how to be a witness which was VERY helpful particularly since neither my witnesses nor myself had any experience. As a result of his outstanding representation I’m thrilled to report a verdict of almost twice what we asked for! I’m able to continue the medical treatments I still need without the financial worry. He worked hard and tirelessly for me. He’s a very decent person and FAR from being like the negative attorney stories I had heard about. I am FOREVER GRATEFUL to him. Needless to say I highly recommend Steve.

Words can not describe
3 years ago I became injured and retained lawyer (not Steve Ozcomert). I was extremely dissatisfied with her level of service so I searched for a replacement. After many calls to the top law firms you see on tv, I stumbled across Steve Ozcomert. He decided to meet me and from our initial meeting represented me. He told me he just wanted to help me and would do the best he could. Boy, did he deliver!!! I am so thankful I found him!! Steve is amazing, smart, approachable, caring, and confident in what he does. I see why he has received Super Lawyer so many times because he's my Super Lawyer. His paralegal, Anne, is such an amazing person as well. I appreciate all her hard work and dedication to my case. She has truly been a pleasure. Thanks Steve and Anne for all your hard work, N.A.

Man on a Mission
I was recommended to Steve by another attorney. She said he was the best for my situation. Well no doubt he was. When you are dealing with the insurance companies and their attitudes you need someone to intervene. The accident was traumatic enough and having to sue your own insurance company was making it worse. Steve stepped in with Anne on his side and they took care of me. With all of their combined experiences I got through this terrible ordeal. I could not have asked for a better attorney that has personality and really cares about you as a person. My family recommends him to anyone that says they have had an accident and you should too.

Wonderful Lawyer
Steve's and Anne walked me through the whole process from start to finish. When I called with questions, I promptly got responses. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone in need of an attorney.

Best Lawyer Ever!
I have really enjoyed the way that Steve and his one person staff Anne handled my case. They turned a bad situation into a very favorable outcome. They went the extra mile. I can highly recommend Steve to anyone that is in need of an attorney.

Steve's the Man!
My wife’s injuries received in our auto accident turned our lives into a two-year+ physical and emotional ordeal. Not only did Steve Ozcomert’s expertise result in a settlement way beyond our expectations, and gracious assistance in dealing with the insurance and healthcare principals, but the empathy, good humor, and kindness displayed by Steve and his Gal Friday Ann made us feel like family. I can’t recommend Steve enough.

If you are looking for a seasoned, professional, attorney; chose Stephen Ozcomert.
Mr. Ozcomert represented me in a personal injury claim resulting from an automobile accident. In addition to receiving fair market value for my (totaled) car, the settlement from the accident assured that I could replace my vehicle with a newer, comparable vehicle and I did not suffer any out-of-pocket expenses for medical care. Mr. Ozcomert exceeded my expectations. I recommend him whole-heartedly. His staff was responsive and assisted me every step of the way. Mr. Ozcomert is the consummate professional. You are in good hands.
