Early in life, we are conditioned to believe that there is always a happy ending for “good” people. As we mature, we begin to understand that life does not always work out that way. Some people receive fortune and fairness and others poverty and inequality. In the law, the cost of justice and fairness is paid by the preparation and effective representation by your legal counsel. – S. Carlton Rouse, Esq.
Rouse & Co, LLC is a boutique firm dedicated in pursuit of two goals: obtaining justice for every client and favorable verdicts or settlements. We are aggressive courtroom litigators focused on Criminal Defense, Civil Trial Representation and Personal Injury in Georgia’s State and Federal courts.
Although we are always prepared to take a case to trial, there are many instances where going to trial is not in line with our clients’ priorities. In those instances, we rely on our experience and reputation to craft negotiated pleas and/or out of court settlements to achieve client goals.
We know that the value of our representation is often the difference between conviction and acquittal, significant financial compensation, and/or closure for families and businesses on important issues. That is why we pride ourselves on providing innovative solutions, thinking outside the box and treating our clients as if their problems were our own.
If you are faced with a legal emergency contact us today to discuss the details of your case. Let us put our expertise and talents to work for you.

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case, the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
S.'s comment: “In 2014 a premises liability client, in a case against a large corporate defendant, refused to pay the costs associated with his case after the bills were paid in advance by the firm (upon his request) and despite previous notices related to the court/case costs. He decided to withdraw his claim and requested his file. I withdrew from the case within sixty days and returned the file. He complained that he wanted his copy of the file sooner.”
