Great attorney, great staff
We've had the misfortune of being on the wrong end of two fairly significant car crashes in the course of a year or so. Ben was recommended to me by someone well respected in the Cobb County judicial circles. He and his staff did not disappoint. By nature, we are not litigious and have never filed a lawsuit before. We explained to Ben we were not out to ruin anyone or seek a windfall. He was respectful of our wishes and we got fair settlements in both injury cases, both times in a very timely fashion.

Outstanding, Compassionate and Trustworthy - Ben Persons
There simply are not enough positive words to adequately describe the compassion, empathy, honesty, transparency, and professionalism I experienced during my case with the Persons Firm for an auto accident. Ben and his Team (Tricia and Katrina) treated me with the utmost respect, dignity and care. They were always available, just a phone call or an email, and were incredibly thorough in researching and reviewing my case as they pursued justice. Throughout the difficult time, I took comfort in knowing that I was in the hands of a trustworthy, upstanding man of character like Ben, who would help me right the wrong and ultimately find a resolve to the trauma I had endured. Ben really cares about his clients and their well-being as well as their outcome. If ever you find yourself in need of an Attorney that has integrity, and treats you like a part of the family, The Persons Firm will be a blessing as well as the gift of peace that you deserve. Trust me when I say, they make you feel that you are being taken care of, and that you are not just a number, you are a name. As a client, I am completely satisfied. I would definitely recommend Ben Persons and his team. Ben you and your Team are truly outstanding. May God continue to bless you in all that you do. I wish you continued success with your Firm and in life.

If you want a lawyer who actually cares, choose BEN!!!!!
Wow, where do I start? I was struck by a drunk driver in Atlanta. I was referred to Ben by a family friend. The only referral I've ever received that was actually worth it. Ben is not a greedy, money hungry egotistical lawyer like most in his field. He REALLY cares about his clients and their well being as well as their outcome. This was my first time in a car accident so I didn't know what to expect. Ben offered great advice and consultation. If I told you how amazing my outcome was BECAUSE BEN REALLY CARED, you wouldn't believe me. If you want a lawyer who does not update you, does not care and isn't playing the cards with the best hands for their clients, then Ben is NOT the attorney for you. He is absolutely amazing! I am so glad I did not go anywhere else. God forbid but if I am ever in another accident (this is Atlanta) I know exactly who to call first. THANK YOU SO MUCH BEN!!!! You were more than a blessing to me than you will ever realize! Lawyers like Ben do not come around often. Truly an honor to have him in the legal arena. Thank you Ben, Tricia and the entire Persons Firm. You all are one in a million.

Great Experience
Having Ben handle my case took the stress and worry off of me. He kept me informed and explained things to me along the way so I actually understood the legal process. I would and have recommended Ben for anyone needing attorney service after being in an accident that involved injury or loss. It was great having someone on my side to handle the complex legalities involving insurance and what my rights were.

Ben exceeded my expectations with my case. He was friendly, professional, very knowledgeable of facts pertaining to my case, an extremely hard worker, and easy to get in touch with.

Courteous, Professional
Extremely courteous and professional, I went to the Persons Firm for my auto injury case and am very happy with the result. Benjamin and his team worked hard to get me the compensation I deserved and did so in the amount time he estimated it would. I recommend going to the Persons Firm to anyone who is in an auto accident or personal injury.

Excellent Service from the Persons Firm
The Person's Firm did an outstanding job with my case. They walked me through every detail of the case from start to finish and always involved me in the decision making process. Ben Persons called me personally on a weekly basis to go over any new developments. If I had a question, I could call at anytime and someone would gladly help me out.

Personal injury Attorney | Jul 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ben has tremendous experience and knowledge gained from being on the defense side of personal injury litigation, and he brings that knowledge to bear on behalf of his clients on the plaintiff's side. I frequently turn to him for advice or to bounce ideas off of him, and am consistently impressed by his depth of knowledge and his thoughtfulness. This is a great lawyer."
Medical malpractice Attorney | Aug 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ben is a first-rate lawyer. He has extensive experience on both sides of cases and his clients benefit from it. Ben and I have worked several big cases together and I have always learned a great deal from just being around him. He is smart about how he litigates, he pushes hard when needed, and he knows how try a case. One of the best compliments I can give any lawyer (and it's definitely true of Ben) is that he treats every case with the same amount of respect and attention. The less valuable cases where he wants to help get the same attention as the ones where the settlement/verdict will likely be many millions."
