More attorneys should be like Jeff Dover
Jeff's desire to educate his clients is extremely helpful. He is one of the few attorneys today who believes that clients should be educated fully about their rights. Many attorneys speak down to their clients and do not bother explaining the law to their clients. Jeff is the opposite. He will make you feel comfortable. He will also discuss your options with you. Great guy to speak with about any injury case.

"I attended a national seminar with Mr. Dover designed to develop professionalism, honesty and trust in the relationship between attorneys and their clients and the general public. Mr. Dover is an excellent attorney his clients can trust will have the experience and integrity to move a case rapidly forward to successful resolution while keeping them informed every step of the way. In fact, he has written very helpful and informative books about the claims process that he provides to clients and to the general public for free to educate them about the claims and litigation process. I highly recommend him for anyone with a personal injury matter in Atlanta, or anywhere else in Georgia for that matter. He is truly a first-class attorney in every respect."

"I have referred many personal injury and medical malpractice clients to Jeff Dover over the past 20 years. Those clients invariably reported back that they were very satisfied with the settlement obtained for them by the Dover Law Firm. One medical malpractice client even received a settlement close to a Million Dollars! Unlike the personal injury "mills" this firm will treat you in a professional and business-like manner. Jeff is an easy-going fellow to work with, but very knowledgable, experienced and tenacious in obtaining the best settlement possible from the insurance companies for his clients."
