    Travis Studdard is an attorney representing military veterans and their dependents in VA disability compensation and pension claims before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He is VA-accredited and able to represent veterans throughout the Southeast and nationwide on a variety of disabilities, including PTSD, Agent Orange presumptive diseases, Temporary Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU), and a variety of other service-connected disabilities.

  2. Workers compensation
    20%
    Travis Studdard is an experienced workers' compensation attorney who only represents injured workers, not insurance companies. He handles all types of injuries with a special focus on litigating catastrophic cases for permanently, totally disabled clients.

I love helping people get the information they need to tackle their individual legal situation.  I focus my practice on workers' compensation and veterans disability law, so there are similarities from case to case.  But, I know that each person's case is different and important because so much is at stake.  Our firm and I are committed to guiding clients through their cases to achieve the best results possible.  Check out our free resources on our website to learn more about the type of case you have and let us know if you would like our help.

Of particular interest to me are catastrophic workers' compensation claims and TDIU (or "total disability based on individual unemployability") claims in veterans disability.  I have years of experience and contacts within the expert witness community to prove these cases and successfully attain benefits for clients who are disabled from regular employment.  In the VA realm, I also enjoy helping clients with their PTSD, herbicide exposure ("Agent Orange"), and other disabilities.  

I received my undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Georgia as a First Honor Graduate. I also received my law degree with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2004. I teamed up with my current law partner after graduation and have devoted my career to representing injured workers and veterans in Workers’ Compensation and Veterans Benefits claims.  I am accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs to represent veterans in veterans benefit claims.

I am a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association, Workers’ Compensation Claimants’ Lawyers, and the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar of Georgia. I am a founding board member of the West Georgia Trial Lawyers’ Association and have previously served as past President of that group.  In 2014, I was recognized by The National Trial Lawyers in their "Top 100 Trial Lawyers."

Professionalism and Clarity
I called Travis’s Law office, after getting as far as I could with the VA. I sent his team all the information I had and they went to work on my case. Travis called me with a plan of action, then quickly implemented it. He and his team made the claims process easier than I thought it could be. At each stage of my claim I was contacted and informed in detail what was going on. When the VA sent their decision, Travis’s team found that the VA had made a mistake and quickly filed for them to fix it. Jessica was always willing to answer any of my million questions throughout this process. I know I probably drove her nuts but she handled it with grace and dignity. Travis and his team are highly recommended.

Works deligently
I would like to thank the law firm of Perkins-Studdard (Travis) and his team, for performing such an outstanding job, at every possible level, during my recent situation with the VA Disability Claims . From the first time I called and spoke with Mr Studdard with an overview of my situation, until the final settlement was executed (successfully I may add), I always felt that I was in good hands with this firm. Everyone in the office, Jessica, and April were responsive, approachable, knowledgeable, good listeners, and extremely professional. Mr. Studdard was realistic of the circumstances and of the potential difficult process that would lay ahead, should I proceed. I can’t say enough about Travis, and I will always be thankful to him. Travis was committed, and he instilled a real sense of confidence during both the highs and the lows. He ultimately prevailed and the outcome was very much in my favor. Of course, each case is different on its own merits and one can never predict how things ultimately will turn out. All I know is that the settlement far exceeded my expectation. Mr. Studdard has been a blessing to me. I strongly recommend that anyone who would find themselves in a similar legal situation with the VA to contact Law Offices of Perkins Studdard for a consultation. It was a very positive experience given the circumstances. Thank you again, I shall forever be in your debt.

The lone corpsman
I have had issues with my mental health from the time the Navy discharged me. These issues arose while serving as an Independant Duty Corpsman on the nuclear submarine John Adams, SSBN 620. After a critical medical evacuation of a shipmate, that I had diagnosed with an appendicitis, was killed during the transfer from our submarine to a helicopter, I felt as if I had sent my patient to his death. For many years I suffered from the memories of that day in December. I did not know that I was suffering from the effects of PTSD. Many health care providers in the private sector, who I sought out for help, either told me that my issues would fade with time or prescribed medication(s) that dulled my senses. I felt betrayed without an advocate to help me, until I called Perkins Studdard. A very kind and compassionate first contact listened to my concerns when I called. Mellissa treated me as if I was her top priority. She encouraged me to submit any documents I had to her and an appointment with Mr. Studdard would be set up. During my phone interview, Mr. Studdard told me my situation had merit and that he would like to represent me. A case manager, Jessica, was assigned to me and the process to obtain relief began. I have never met such empathetic people who all seem to have a one goal, to serve the needs of Veterans. If you need someone to fight a good fight for benefits you as a veteran deserve, these are the folks to reach out to.

VA Compensation
Travis Studdard and his team helped me navigate the VA appeals process and successfully win it. I could not have done it without them!!!! I highly recommend this firm to my fellow veterans who have been wrongfully denied the benefits they deserve.

Couldn't have done it without them!
I really appreciate everything Mr. Studdard and his team has done to help me. I'm a disabled vet and had been dealing with the VA on my disability and really needed help. After working with them they were able to get my appeal taken care of and approved within a year. There is no way I could of navigated all of the red tape on my own, and I couldn't recommend them enough. If you're a disabled vet like me needing help when dealing with the VA don't hesitate to reach out to them. They'll take care of you and get you the benefits you deserve and are entitled too.

Changed my life, and amazing to work with
Let me cut to the chase, if you're a veteran needing help navigating your appeals, doing it on your own is not a great idea. many of my veteran friends and colleagues have given up on the process because of how confusing and daunting the task is. I was the same way until I contacted Perkins Studdard. They filed the paperwork and got everything moving; which, on its own, would have taken me months with navigating the panic and complexities of doing it. they helped me understand what my exams would be like which alleviated a lot of the stress that comes with this process. They were also fast to respond either through email or by phone with any questions I had. Even when I had to ask the same things over and over, they were patient with me and made sure I fully understood what I was worrying about. I've heard from other veterans who have used Perkins Studdard, and have heard zero negatives, which is not the case with all appeals lawyers who are just trying to funnel you through as fast and un-thorough as possible. Bottom line, if you want your absolute best chance at filling appeals through the VA, this is where you need to be.

The best Attorney I could have ever hoped for!
Travis and his team got to work quick, and worked diligently all the while talking with me and explaining to me the steps in my case for my VA Benefits. They went above and beyond the call of duty and got me what I have fought for with the VA for years…decades really. I can never thank Travis and everyone else at Perkins Studdard LLC for helping me when I had so little hope left. Thank you all so much!

Outstanding law firm for veterans seeking help with a disability claim. Travis listened and answered my questions. He successfully won my appeal for maximum increase and benefits within 6 months.

Very Successful Relationship
Travis Studdard, and his staff, were able to help me navigate the mysteries of the VA system. Their innovative work brought about the best rating decision that I could have imagined. Other firms that I had contacted said they didn't think they could help me. He is a Christian man and can be trusted.

A lawyer that truly cares about Veterans
I would like to say that it was refreshing and reassuring to have Travis represent me during my VA case. Being older, not computer savvy, Travis and his secretary Jessica did an outstanding job helping me through the process. They went out of their way to guide me through all the steps necessary. Travis is very knowledgeable and confident in what he does and that is obvious. He helped me complete all the documents and paperwork that were needed. Travis and Jessica kept in constant contact with me, and kept me informed through the entire process. If I ever had questions they were very quick to respond. I am very satisfied with their practice and can say with great confidence that I would highly recommend them!

Very Satisfied Customer
Mr. Studdard's Youtube videos were an inspiration for me to build a strong case. When the VA denied my claim without even really considering it - the denial came back VERY quickly - I sought Mr. Studdard out for my appeal. One year later (because of the VA process), the VA approved my appeal. I'm very grateful to Mr. Studdard's office for their work! Don't be fooled by his humble nature or his thoughtful delivery. Mr. Studdard knows his stuff. To take a case on contingency like that, if he takes your case, the odds are definitely in your favor. Thank you Mr. Studdard, Jessica, and everyone who worked on my appeal!

THANK YOU!!!!
I had a very complicated disability case that went back to the mid 90's. I had been out of the military for 16 years. I tried on my own along with help of local VA reps and was denied several times by the VA. I reached out to Travis Studdard and his staff based on doing research of who could help me. They immediately contacted me and the communication line was open. I spoke to them constantly, the staff is absolutely great and very knowledgeable. If I ever had a question, I could call or email and always had the answer right away. Bottom line.... This firm, Travis and his staff KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. In the end we just won my case and I have been finally awarded the disability that I deserved all along. If it wasn't for Travis Studdard and his staff, I would have given up after three denials. Thank you all for what you do Perkins Studdard LLC!! If your reading this and on the fence about who to retain to help you. look no further!! JAC (South Carolina)

Awesome
First off I want to say that I greatly appreciate Mr. Studdard, Mrs. Reeves, Mrs. Hyatt, and Mrs. Adair. They were truly a blessing from God. I lost almost all hope with my claim and they were able to help me. Now I would recommend them to anyone that needed the help. Truly wonderful people very down to earth. Please give them a shot if anything watch Mr. Studdards YouTube videos. They are professional and truly care about veterans.

Outstanding
Needed to appeal a VA disability rating. After some searching I found Perkins/Studdard law firm. A thorough questionnaire was sent to me. The appeal took a year. Every question was answered within one day of emailing them. The office staff was wonderful. They would check in to see how I was doing on occasion. I can't recommend them enough. They won my case even though I didn't really think I would win.

Travis is my hired Attorney for my VA Disability Compensation Claim issues. He already has been successful getting one of my ratings increased from 10% to 30% on an higher level review. He is almost ready to submit for an increase on one of my ratings and submit two initial claims. Travis really impressed me in his Youtube informative videos. Travis and his legal assistant have been nothing but, professional, courteous, caring and nothing but the BEST!! I Highly Recommend him and his Firm....

An Advocate for Veterans
Where do I begin? My experience with Perkins Studdard is an 11/10. From submitting my first intake form all the way to winning my VA Appeal the TEAM over at Perkins Studdard was there for me all the way! After being turned down by other VA advocates, Travis took my case and never sugared coated any of it! He was honest with me in his plan and execution leading all the way to the VA approving our request. The staff are very professional and very knowledgeable -- and it is like Travis himself was born to advocate for us veterans. I highly recommend reaching out to this firm and highly recommend working with Perkins Studdard. Good luck!

VA disability claim
I'm writing this review to let veterans know there is help. If you are frustrated, struggling and tired of dealing with the Department Of Veterans Affairs give Travis Studdard, at Perkins Studdard Law Firm a phone call. After years of frustrating, i finally reached out to Perkins Studdard Law Firm for a free consultation and I'm glad i did. I'm so grateful to Perkins Studdard and staff for taking my case and relieving my stress level. Attorney Travis Studdard and Paralegal Layla Reeves is very professional, treats me with respect and responds to me promptly. They have obtained my percentage increase already and are still working on my case. I highly recommend Perkins Studdard Law Firm for your compensation disability claim or other issues.
