CALL US TO FIND OUT WHY OTHER LAWYERS AND JUDGES HIRE US TO REPRESENT THEM IN THEIR INJURY CASES.

Jeff’s practice focuses on serious personal injury cases of all types, including automobile accidents, trucking accidents, premise liability, negligent security, motorcycle accidents, catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, product liability and professional malpractice. He has tried numerous cases to verdict and represented clients in the Supreme Court of Georgia and the Georgia Court of Appeals.

 

 In October 2010, Jeff was lead trial counsel on a slip and fall premises liability case in Bulloch County, Georgia and secured a $1,778, verdict for the injuries to a young man. Defendants disputed they were negligent and claimed that they had been in business for over twenty years and never had a patron fall. After a three day trial, the jury awarded $1,528, in damages for medical expenses and pain and suffering and $250, in punitive damages.

 

 

In November, 2010, just three weeks after serving as lead trial counsel and securing a multi-million dollar verdict in South Georgia, Jeff was lead trial counsel on another multi-million dollar verdict in DeKalb County. In that case, the Plaintiff alleged the Defendant, a 28 year old military veteran, ran her and her husband off the road, causing serious injuries to both husband and wife. The Defendant, who was represented by a large national defense firm, claimed the Plaintiffs came into his lane. After a three day trial, the jury found for the Plaintiffs and awarded a total award of $3,290, (inclusive of attorney's fees).

 

Jeff has been recognized as one of the top young lawyers in Georgia and named a Georgia Rising Star by Atlanta Magazine and the Super Lawyers publication in 2007, 2009 and 2010 (there was no Rising Stars publication in 2008).  Only 2.5% of the total lawyers in Georgia are selected as a Rising Star

Great attorney to have in your corner.
Jeff worked on my case for three years and during that period always kept me informed by letter, phone, or email. I found him to be extraordinarily honest and trustworthy and he seemed to genuinely care about my situation. These qualities were a refreshing surprise, especially since I normally hear the opposite about attorneys. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing representation in the area of personal injury.

simply the best
Jeff, this is a note to thank you for your sensational legal skills, your passionate advocacy and your persistant hard work. Despite his young age, Shiver's knowledge is superb placing him on a elite level of attorneys. Jeff represented me in a trial and seeing this man put on a show was like no other. I will never forget the tears of joy that ran down my cheek as the jury read the verdict. I would recommend Mr. Shiver to anyone that wants top of the line representation. I am forever grateful that Jeff represented me in trial.

Mom's Case
Jeff's persistance in putting our case together, interviewing and collecting supporting evidence led to the defense quickly requesting mediation and settlement. He kept us well informed and always took the time to explain in detail any questions we had. I found him to be passionate about his work. A real professional.

My experience using Jeff Shiver
I first met Jeff a few years back when he was working on my father's wrongful death case. Jeff was a pleasure to work with and quickly became part of our family. He was thorough to the letter of the law and did everything he said he would do in the time frame predicted. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone and will continue to work with Jeff with any legal needs I may have in the future. Oh, did I mention that Jeff's firm got us the highest settlement ever in the State of Georgia on a case of this type? You won't regret working with him.

Atty. Jeff Shiver is a lawyer that will represent you with his fullest attention
Confirmation: Jeffrey Parker Shiver Attorney at law I retained Jeff Shiver to represent me involving litigation of a personal injury accident and loss of vehicle. This incident resulted from an intoxicated driver running a red light and crashing into the right side passenger door of my car completely destroying the vehicle. Jeff has the demeanor to satisfy most any client that would need detailed representation of a legal nature. His personal interaction between himself and client was superb. I was very much impressed with the background research he did without my prompting and was well prepared at conference meetings with case information and progress. The case was satisfactorily resolved. Stanley E. Thompsen Retired Air America Pilot (rotary and fixed wing, Southeast Asia)
