About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I'm a trial attorney. I help people who have been seriously injured put their lives back together by securing full and just compensation for their losses. I've won over $20,000,000 in verdicts and settlements for my clients.

I've been selected as a Georgia SuperLawyers Rising Star from 2012 through 2018. Only 2.5% of the lawyers in Georgia are chosen for this honor. 

Before I began representing people and families, I worked at one of Atlanta's largest law firms defending insurance companies and corporations in personal injury and wrongful death cases.  I learned how insurance companies and defense lawyers defend and value these cases and now use this experience in prosecuting my clients' cases.  

I have offices in Atlanta and Athens and handle cases all over the state of Georgia. Please call for a free consultation about your case.

My son was in a car wreck were he broke his back. The driver of the other car was at fault. We are from north Alabama and knew no one in the Atlanta / Athens area. We first reached to an "TV" attorney but did not receive the attention we needed. We were referred to Michael from an attorney from home. We called Michael and he came to the hospital that day. From the very start we felt like we were the number one priority. My son received a settlement to cover his lost wages and get him back on his feet. We were very pleased with the job Michael performed.

Client Review
Michael represented me in a slip and fall case whereby two law firms previously told me that I did not have a case. Upon securing representation, Michael communicated with me regarding the status of the case on regular basis. Additionally, he provided sound advice and guidance every step of the way. Finally, I am pleased with the resolution of my case.

The Best!
Michael did an outstanding job representing me after an auto accident. Initially I retained other counsel and for nearly two years felt ignored. With the deadline for filing drawing near and no returned phone calls, an attorney friend recommended Michael. At our first meeting Michael explained the process, set realistic expectations and then kept me informed every step of the way. I always felt confident he had my best interests in mind and trusted he was representing me well. Due to his guidance and expertise, we received a favorable settlement. I highly recommend Michael to anyone seeking legal representation. Working with him was always a pleasure.

Amazing, professional and a hard working attorney
I consulted with Michael Ruppersburg in December 2018. I was happy with the consultation so I moved forward with my case. Michael made my experience stress free and worked hard on the settlement from the car accident. We won the case. He never once wanted to settle for less. I highly recommend Mr. Ruppersburg.

Amazing Experience
Attorney Michael Ruppersburg and his staff were absolutely amazing! By far the best call I could have made was to them. They treated me with compassion and as a priority. They were very caring and professional. I never had to worry or be concerned about the status of my case because I was always kept well informed; Michael would give me continuous updates via email or he would call me himself. There were many times that I had questions that I would email him and he would always answer them very promptly. I was involved in a wreck in November 2018 and my case was settled in June 2019 but keep in mind that not all cases can be resolved that quickly but know that they are constantly working hard for you. Do not ever try to take on an insurance company by yourself, Michael is very knowledgeable and knows how to deal with these companies and their attorney's that will greatly benefit you in the end. If I ever find myself in the same situation again, I will not hesitate to call Michael. I highly recommend Attorney Michael Ruppersburg!

Mr. Ruppersburg went above and beyond for me and my case. Through one of the most trying times in my life, he brought outstanding professionalism, courtesy, and compassion. With regard to my case, he was always on top of it, and was always a step ahead of paperwork. I recommend him highly.

Fantastic lawyer!
I cannot say enough good about Michael. From our very first meeting until my case was fully settled, he kept me up to date with everything that was going on. Even though my case seemed complicated to me, Michael was able to explain it in simple language while representing my best interest at every turn. I was also an active participant and not just ‘the client’. While Michael would offer his professional advice and opinion, it was always clear that I had final decision making authority in my case. Knowing you have a true professional on your side who is guiding you through the often confusing process makes this easy. Ads for lawyers often hype how they will ‘fight’ for their clients. Michael made it clear in both word and actions that he was solely concerned about what was in my best interest. I hope I never need a lawyer’s professional services again, but if I do, I know who I’ll call.

A Great lawyer
I had a really good experience with my lawyer Michael Ruppersburg. This was my first lawsuit and I have no complaints about Michael Ruppersburg or his office or staff. If i called or emailed I got a reply usually the same day. He was always very straight forward with me. No matter my questions I had for him whether I thought they were stupid, he didn't. He explained everything to me that I had asked of him, during different stages of my case. If I didn't understand something he would explain it. For my first case and not knowing much, I felt really good and comfortable asking questions that I needed answers to. No question too big, too small or irrelevant if I asked it was answered. This was my first case and I hope my last.
