About me

An Indiana native (Hoosier Boy), but now a true Atlanta Falcons and Braves fan, W. Winston Briggs has over 25 years of experience and tried more than 150 jury trials. After watching his grandfather, parents, and siblings practice law, Winston decided to follow in their footsteps and pursue this profession at a very young age. Winston obtained his B.A. Degree from DePauw University in 1984 and graduated from Wake Forest University Law School in 1987. Upon graduation, he passed the Georgia Bar exam and joined the law firm of Decker & Hallman (the predecessor to Decker, Hallman, Barber & Briggs.) He is now currently a member of the Georgia Bar, the Florida Bar and multiple federal courts in Georgia, Florida and Louisiana. Winston also serves as President of the West Midtown Business Alliance and is Vice President and serves on the Board of Directors of Peachtree Childtown School, an educational preschool for children in Atlanta.
Winston Briggs has successfully tried a wide variety of cases over the years including ones involving auto accidents, trucking accidents, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice, chemical exposure injuries, Reactive Airways Dysfunction Syndrome (RADS) and many more. Winston works closely with his clients, meeting them at the beginning and throughout each case. His approach to the law is to prepare every case as if it is actually going to go to trial. Helping his clients acquire the full compensation they deserve is a rewarding experience for this attorney.
