About me

Johnny Phillips is no stranger to Georgia.  He is originally from the Metropolitan Atlanta Area.  Johnny served in the Air Force for eight years as an Investigator and Security Forces officer.He attended his first year of law school at Mercer University and then went on to complete his Juris Doctor at Georgia State, where he graduated in the top five percent of his class.  Johnny ensures his clients get the best possible resolution for their matters either without litigation, or with the filing of a lawsuit. From there, Johnny ensures his clients receive the best legal representation through an early settlement of their claims or through a trial and verdict of their cases.
