Practice areas

For the better part of two decades, I have dedicated my career to the representation of clients throughout the State of Georgia in workers' compensation claims before the State Board of Workers' Compensation. Before my career as a workers' compensation attorney, I worked in the business world as an operations manager for a trucking company and later for a national labor contracting firm. That experience gave me firsthand perspective on what are often life-changing and devastating issues faced by those injured on the job in industries such as transportation, construction, healthcare, and retail.

Because of my previous business experience, practicing workers' compensation law became the obvious choice for my legal career. I earned my juris doctorate cum laude from Michigan State University College of Law, where I was the president of my graduating class. I received my bachelor’s degree in business and economics from West Virginia Wesleyan College. I am a member of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the State Bar of Georgia and Atlanta Bar Association. When I am not practicing law, I am active in my church and numerous community organizations. I also enjoy everything to do with the outdoors, especially backpacking when time allows.

Half Man Half Amazing
Fred has to be one of the most professional lawyers that I've ever worked with. In each step of the process, he explained in detail what is going on and what to expect. You will never be in the dark when you're with Fred. Truly an amazing person and would recommend him in a heartbeat.

My experience with Fredrick James Conklin, Jr.
Great attorney. Very professional and responsive. When ever I reached out, if he was not available, I could trust I would hear from him at his earliest convenience. Frederick worked hard for me... I felt confident he had my best interest in mind. I would recommend Frederick if you have need of a workers compensation attorney. .

If you are not sure which lawyer to hire, look no further!
I just recently settled my case through Mr. Conklin. I was very nervous about this whole ordeal since I have never had to deal with any legal issues. He took me step by step through everything he did as h did it, he handled the entire process and kept me up to date almost weekly via phone calls or mail. When it came time to settle, he told me exactly what to expect and not only did he get me literally twice the amount of money I had hoped for, he took such a small percentage, I honestly feel bad. He is truly a good man. Not all lawyers have the same professionalism and good-heartedness as this man. I hope that whomever reads this review will consider this man to represent you. He made a terrifying process extremely simple. Thanks to him, I can get my life back on track. My sincerest gratitude to him as well as his staff. The fast responses to any questions and the quick settlement was more than I could've hoped for. Thank you, Mr. Conklin. Just like the picture I sketched for you said, you are a super-hero of the law!

Excellent Counsel for Workman Compensation Cases
I had the privilege of having Mr. Fred Conklin represent me regarding an accident I suffered. After experiencing difficultly in obtaining the necessary medical care Mr. Conklin assisted me in the process allowing me to focus my energy on healing. He demonstrated compassion and exhibited a professional courtesy that facilitated a positive outcome with my claim. He responded promptly to all my concerns. I highly recommend his service.

EXCELLENT
Mr. Conklin is an excellent attorney. I called him and he took my case right away. Not only did I find a great attorney but I found a great friend. He went over and beyond to help me. He is very knowledgeable with the workers compensation laws. He didn't let my case go on and on. He took my case like it was his only one. He was there for me via email or phone calls within minutes. He made me feel like I had know him for years. You will NOT go wrong by letting Mr. Conklin take your case, he is awesome.

Great Lawyer
I went through two attorneys before I was put in contact with Mr. Conklin. One was to busy to help me and the other one stated I did not have a case and refereed me to Mr. Conklin. He went above and beyond to help me. His advise was dead on. He told me just like it was. I could not recommend him enough. He will work very hard for you. I can't thank him enough. GREAT JOB.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED
Wish I had met Mr.Conklin years ago. He keptmes well informed about my case, through phone calls and emails. I felt comfortable with him, knowing that he is knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend him. Thank you so much Mr. Conklin for the hard work you put in for me. May you be richly blessed.

One of a kind
Mr. Conklin was an attorney for me for 4 months. From the beginning till the end he was awesome! Any questions or concerns I had, either via mail or phone he would get back to me the same day at the latest, most of the time it would be within the hour. He handled everything very professionally and was very respectful to both myself and my workers compensation adjuster. He always kept me informed of what was going on or anything new. Once my settlement check came, he was right on top of things and offered to either meet me that day or he could mail it overnight. Overall he was a pleasure to work with and he was my first attorney; however, a great one! I highly recommend him! You won't be disappointed!!
