About me

    Wesley is an experienced trial lawyer and former prosecutor who began his career in 1999 as a police officer rising to the rank of special investigations detective.  After graduating from Georgia State University School of Law, he worked as a prosecutor handling thousands of cases involving traffic citations and drunk driving.  Many of these cases involved car and truck accidents.  Now, Wesley uses his unique experience to represent accident and injury victims in the areas of personal injury, car & truck collisions, workers’ compensation, and criminal law. 
        Wesley began his career in 1999 when he went to work for the Powder Springs Police Department in Cobb County after graduating in the top of his class from the police academy.  While working as a police officer, Wesley attended Mercer University and graduated summa cum laude, earning a 4.0 GPA and a double major in both Criminal Justice and Computer Information Systems. 
    From there, Wesley continued his career in law enforcement working with Douglasville Police Department in Douglas County, Georgia, where he was promoted to Detective assigned to the Special Investigations Division.  Wesley handled investigations into serious criminal activity including narcotics trafficking, racketeering, financial crimes, and other complex investigative matters. 
    While working as a detective, Wesley attended law school and earned his Juris Doctorate from Georgia State University graduating in the top of his class.  After law school, Wesley began working for the Douglas County State Court Prosecutor’s Office where he served the citizens of Douglas County prosecuting a variety of crimes and earning a reputation as a respected trial lawyer with an impressive trial record.  Wesley has devoted his entire career to seeking justice and advocating for the victims of crimes. 
    Wesley entered private practice joining The Law Office of Jack Clay where he continues his fight for justice.  Wesley and Jack represent victims of negligence and serious injury accidents both on the road and on the job.  Wesley is a proud member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and is licensed to practice law before the Georgia Supreme Court as well as the Georgia Court of Appeals.
    “There is no greater an honor than to be the voice for those who would not otherwise have one, be they a victim of a crime or an injured person seeking compensation.”

    I have known Wes for a long time, which includes working him in his former profession as a law enforcement officer. Wes has carried his public service experience over to his practice of law. Wes is also one of those lawyers that is not only intelligent, but also carries a lot of common sense that is seldom seen in today's courtrooms. If I needed a personal injury attorney for myself or a family member, I would hire Wes Starrett to help me.
