DO YOU NEED HELP DEALING WITH WORKERS' COMPENSATION OR HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER YOU ARE BEING TREATED FAIRLY? I CAN HELP. CALL NOW FOR A FREE CONSULTATION.

To those struggling with a Workers Comp case:

My life has led me to develop a passion for justice and fairness for those in need. I believe I learned that from my dad. Fairness was very important to him. What I learned in college at Mercer University and in law school at the University of Georgia increased my desire to help others achieve justice and fair treatment.

Although workers’ compensation is supposed to balance the interests of injured workers and employers, it seems like injured workers often get the short end of the stick. I cannot tell you how many times people have contacted me because they are frustrated with the delays that they encounter trying to get the treatment and compensation that they should after an injury at work. Trying to make sure that the workers’ compensation system treats people fairly is what motivates me to work hard.

Trying to make Georgia’s workers’ compensation system better has also driven me to volunteer my time in a number of different organizations and to serve in leadership roles. I have served as President of the Workers’ Compensation Claimants Lawyers section of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. I currently serve on the Executive Committee for the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar of Georgia and on the Chairman’s Advisory Council for the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.

Helping others is a passion of mine. My workers’ compensation experience lets me help others in a few different ways. I most enjoy the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Video Series that I post on our Perkins Studdard YouTube Channel and the informational articles that I post on the Perkins Law Talk blog. I also often speak at continuing legal education seminars where I hope to help others learn about Georgia’s workers’ compensation law.

If you want to know a little bit about who I am outside of work, my biggest joy in life is the time that I get to spend with my wife, son, and daughter. They motivate me to be better. I also enjoy distance running and reading because they challenge me and give me time to think.

Your search is over!
Integrity, knowledgeable, diligent, caring, dependable, ect. I could go on and on about the excellent service I received from this law firm. Jason Perkins and his legal staff went above and beyond helping me with my work comp case. All questions answered, all phone calls answered or returned in a timely manner. I was treated with the utmost respect from beginning to end. To me, this firm was a Godsend! I am and always will be grateful for the hard work done by Jason Perkins and staff of Perkins/Studdard Law firm. Even after being told by a previously hired law firm that my chances were zero to none in obtaining any kind of compensation for my injury; Jason Perkins took my case and came through for me. Let them do their best for you also!

Heaven Sent that give me peace of mind when the other Attorney had failed.
From my first conversation with Jason I could tell that he really did care and was not concerned about whats in it for him, but willing to help take away my burden. He has been very strategic in getting the best outcome, Jason never made me feel insignificant like the other Attorney did. Once I hired Jason I had peace of mind and assurance and his Paralegal, Tina was very knowledgeable like Jason. I can't say enough about Jason and his professional staff. The politeness and efficiency I received from Jason was amazing. He and his staff trully care for the people they represent and have there best interest at heart. I highly recommend Jason Perkins and his staff.

Jason Perkins and his entire team
Jason Perkins and his staff were not only effective but offered a responsiveness to any and all of our questions that many law offices fail to offer. Throughout our process, we were sent videos on what to expect and how the lawsuit would proceed. This gave us a sense of comfort knowing what each step of the lawsuit meant and where and how it would proceed. If you are looking for a law firm that involves you in the process and is responsive to all your questions and concerns then I highly recommend Jason Perkins and his entire staff.

I had the best experience working with Jason Perkins during a difficult time injured out of work on workers comp. I never realized how difficult workers comp could be until I was out on it. Once I hired Jason Perkins a load of stress was released. I can not say one negative thing about my experience working with Jason or Tina. Choosing this firm was the best decision I ever made!

The BEST lawyer for the job.
If you are looking for a GREAT Worker’s Compensation lawyer, Jason is the lawyer for you! I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. He will fight hard to get what you deserve. As far as my case goes, he was given a top dollar on what they would pay but he wasn’t happy with that and fought to get what we thought was fair and got the results we were looking for. His staff Tina and Liz have ALWAYS been there if I needed them. You don’t have to wait weeks like at some law firms for a reply. You can’t go wrong. You can thank me later!

Professional, prompt and responsive!
Jason Perkins and his team handled my case professionally and to my satisfaction. When I contacted Jason, for a consultation about my situation. He gave me his advice, on how to proceed further. Jason thoroughly explain all the what, when, and how to my case. He also provides videos that explains each step of the legal steps addressing my case. If I had questions or concerns. I called the office, and Tina would deliver the message, for Jason to contact me to go over my concerns. Never, missed a beat with assisting me. I appreciate their expertise.
