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.

Not just his Job
I hired Jason for my Workers Comp case. If you want a attorney/ firm that is honest, caring, and professional look no further. Jason and his team worked hard on my case for many years. No money in the world can take the pain away or change the tragic things that happened in my life. His staff / family always listened and was compassionate they keep me informed every step of the way and always made sure my well being was top priority. I was never just a number. Thank you Jason and Team

Fair and knowledgeable workers compensation attorney!
These attorneys went out of there way for me to ensure I received a fair and timely settlement. Their knowledge of workers compensation law is spectacular. The attorneys, paralegal, and front office staff work together to ensure mental ease in a not so easy situation. Great job and thank for your assistance!

Best Workers Comp Attorney
My experience with Perkins Studdard has been nothing but a BLESSING. I was injured in 2018 and my original attorney withdrew from case. I spoke with another attorney before speaking with Jason Perkins. Jason Perkins took on my case knowing that Workers Comp may not settle my case.... he cares about people and helping them. When Jason took on my case I was quickly set back up with Psychiatry, (that I was out of for 2 months), I was set up with all doctors that I needed within weeks of him taking on my case. Him and his office staff, Mrs. Tina, Mrs. Angela and chad are nothing but miracles in my eyes. They handle any issues, or concerns in a very prompt manner. I would Highly recommend Perkins Studdard for anyone who needs a great workers comp attorney. THANK YOU JASON for fighting for the things I needed and just EVERYTHING.

THE ABSOLUTELY BEST
Attorney Jason Perkins and his staff is the best. If you want quality and professional service, Look no further. Attorney Perkins explained every details about my case from beginning to end. Each time I called his office, I was greeted with kindness by him and his staff. I don't know of any other lawyer who could have handled my case like Jason. If I had questions, his staff was there to answer. If you are looking for a GEORGIA Workers Comp. lawyer, this is the one.

It has been a pleasure working with Mr. Perkins and his staff. I was very informed during my Worker's Compensation case. Mr Perkins provided detailed videos during each process of the case which was very helpful to me. His willingness to answer all my questions and return my calls showed just how important his clients are to his firm. I highly recommend him to anyone that has a Workers Compensation claim.

The Best of the Best in Work Comp Attorneys!!!
I spoke with Jason Perkins about my on the job injury and he went above and beyond to explain things before I retained him as my WC lawyer. He is very genuine and trustworthy and kept me up to date at all times with my case. He is knowledgeable and shares videos that explained each step we were going thru in my case and had me totally prepared for it. I highly recommend him if you are in need of an awesome WC attorney.
