The Shah Law firm represented me in two auto injury cases. Mrs. George and Mr. Shah were extremely helpful in guiding me throughout the settlement process and very diligent in following up with all parties involved in a timely manner. They were able to negotiate with the medical insurance agencies to reduce my bills. Thank you for your hard work.

Awesome Experience with Elizabeth!
Ms. George was a major help to me during my case. I was in a car accident where the other driver was at fault. She worked hard to make sure I got everything that was due to me as well as reducing the medical fees that I owed. She was very kind and patient with me during the process, making sure I had a clear understanding of everything. She was diligent about sending updates and expediting the settlement process. I found it easy to talk to her about any concerns or questions that I had. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking assistance with a legal matter!

Exceptional Attorney.
I received the opportunity to work with Liz on my personal injury case. At the time, I was a Police Officer hurt on the job as a result of a negligent business owner. Liz and Parag nobility represented my case and did a phenomenal job. I could not have asked for a better team of Attorneys in Atlanta.

Very professional
Elizabeth worked very hard on my case to lower my medical bills to a fraction of the original bill and in some cases , eliminated the entire amount. She worked well after I had my settlement, to make sure that all details were taken care of. Also, she kept me informed of everything she did in my case. Five stars!!

Another Excellent Shah
Elizabeth Shah represented me in a personal injury case. From the first day, I felt comfortable having her representing me. If I had questions, I would call or email and in a very short amount of time I'd have answers. Professional and caring!

The Pleasure of Professionalism
Elizabeth George was not only dedicated to me as a client but was the pure definition of professional. From the way she conducted and carried herself all the way to her attention of the most intricate details that went into preparing my case. Anytime she had something for me to look over she would let me know, give me adequate time to review it, and then make sure everything was accurate before forwarding it to the appropriate person. Every step of the way in my personal injury case I had questions and she had answers. Detailed and knowledgable answers. She is very versed in her practice and is very confident in her ability. From the first time I walked into Shah Law Firm and met her I knew that she would be someone I'd love to have in my corner. At the end of the day it paid major dividends believing in her and the rest of the staff. I can't imagine having gone through this process with any other form of representation. Her and Parag Shah are like a one-two combo that will shut the lights out. Just stepping foot in there office makes you feel important, working with them makes you feel important, and to them you sincerely are cared for and important. Not a single thing was unsatisfactory while working with Elizabeth. I can't put into words how hard she worked for me. Nor can I verbalize my immense appreciation. In every way, shape, and form Elizabeth George and the team at Shah Law Firm are what true legal representation looks like. Over the few years that my case lasted and the multiple back and forth that we went through she never wavered. Instead, she was ready for any and everything the adjuster threw her way with a quick check in with me and an optimal response. Every time it worked out in my favor. Every time she was genuinely happy for me as her client. I would recommend Elizabeth and the team at Shah Law Firm for anyone seeking legal representation. I am fortunate to have been her client. Elizabeth and the team at Shah Law Firm are not just competent they should at least be the standard and realistically in a league of there own. To walk away from a legal matter and to be able to say I enjoyed my experience isn't something I would have imagined in a million years would come out of my mouth. They changed that for me. They aren't only good lawyers, they are good people. Without Elizabeth and her hard work my financial and personal losses from the accident I was in would have been insurmountable. Because of her my life is back to normal and better than ever.

Terrific
I really like Elizabeth George. She helped me things outside of my case. It didn't matter what time I texted, called, or emailed her, she would get back in touch with in a timely manner. I never felt out of the loop with my case. Almost two years flew by and it didn't even feel like it. Her and Parag were always working on my case. When they had other court appointments or cases they needed to close they let me know what they were doing on my case. A lot of our interaction was over the phone for the first year and a half. However, close to the end I met them and they were the sweetest people. I liked how they both kept it real with me. Even when I decided to settle my case they told me the pros and cons and they cut their fee just so I could get what I wanted.

Excellent One on One interaction and results
If the need arises I will not hesitate to use Elizabeth George as my attorney again. Such a pleasure to work with in such a frustrating situation. I was kept in the loop and knew everything that was going on from the get go. And my case was handled and settled in less than a year.

Tops!!
Contacted Liz 3 1/2 years ago about area of law that she no longer practiced. She did however recommend someone to us that helped us stay in and re-fi our home of 19 yrs. For this we are forever greatful. Her work on our most recent issue that Liz and her husband Parag Shah has been a life changer as well. I truly can't say enough good about Liz. She helped us save our home, and then worked dilligently to give us a part of our life back. Thanks Liz!! You Rock!!

Auto Accident
Extremely smart, extremely responsive, extremely caring.......3 very descriptive and telling things that were so impressive in dealing with Elizabeth George. Frankly, she and I only conversed via email messages for the most part as they navigated my legal interest until much later in the case when we finally got to meet in person. The Shah Law Firm is absolutely "top drawer" in their field. I never felt slighted or unattended throughout my case and actually felt a very high degree of safety and comfort. Every detail was addressed in terms that I could fully understand and the end result proved that I had indeed selected the right attorneys to represent me. Excellent and highest recommendation.

Accident Claim
I had the misfortune to have an accident a couple of years ago, but then had the good fortune to have Elizabeth George handling my case. It was difficult for her as I did not live in the same country so Ms. Elizibeth has to deal with me my e mail or phone. She was always patient with me, calmed me down when I was was getting stressed, which happened a few times. Ms. Elizabeth always took time to explain what was occurring and kept in constant touch. She was professional to a fault.. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone who needs a good attorney to handle their case in a caring and professional manner... And my case was brought to a successful conclusion... D.

Highly Recommended
I hired Elizabeth because of a personal injury I sustained in a fall. She was supportive, knowledgeable, organized and communicated with me regularly and clearly. She was also very fair. I would definitely use her and Parag Shah in the future, should the need arise. It was an excellent experience.

Attorney Elizabeth George did an excellent job in representing me on my driving under the influence in Coweta Co. Attorney George applied her experience and expertise in selecting a jury; however the solicitor elected to offer me a reduce charge after the jury was selected. This offer is something that Coweta County typically never offer on a refusal. I know she was very instrumental in my case being settled. Again, I would like to thank Attorney E. George for assisting me on this case!
