AN INJURY PRACTICE WITH SUPERIOR SERVICE!

James M. Roth (Jim) grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. He pursued his undergraduate studies at Valdosta State University, where he received his Bachelors Degree with Honors. Mr. Roth worked for a year in Public Service and then enrolled at the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.

While attending law school, he was a member of the Trial Competition Team, an organization consistently ranked among the top tier of competitive court programs across the country. Jim participated in several Mock Trial competitions while at law school, and won the Haley Trial Competition--the most prestigious competition in the program.

He served as a contributor of the Pro Confessio, a publication of Cumberland Law School.

After earning his law degree, Jim began his professional career as an In-house Trial Counsel for State Farm Insurance Company. While there, he handled cases ranging from personal injury car wrecks to multi-defendant complex liability litigation.

Jim has also practiced defense work for several major insurance carriers including Allstate, Progressive, Farmers, and U.S.A.A. He has represented clients injured as the result of mis-filled prescriptions, tractor-trailer wrecks, and interference with business relationships.

Jim participates at all levels of local and national bar organizations and other law-related community activities including the Atlanta and Birmingham Bar Association, Alabama Trial Lawyers Association, and the Georgia Personal Injury Association.

In addition to his professional representation, Jim has lectured and presented seminars on complex discovery, witness interviews, case preparation, pre-filing investigation, informal discovery, computerized research, as well as various other topics.

Jim focuses on complex trucking and common carrier wrecks, wrongful death, serious motor vehicle wrecks, bad faith insurance litigation, premises liability, general civil litigation, and commercial litigation.

THIS GUY KNOWS HIS STUFF!!
When I first hired Jim of THE ROTH FIRM, I was concerned that he might be a little young for a very serious injury case. Boy, was I wrong. He was more experienced than almost any other lawyer I interviewed. Also, he was professional, hard working, smart, reliable, and most of all got JUSTICE for my case. If you are considering him for your lawyer you need to pull the trigger and pick him. I was VERY impressed! L. M. College Park, GA

Excellent Attorney at all times!
Our Attorney at the Roth Firm in Atlanta was Richard Bentley and he and his Paralegals were excellent from the start of the case until it concluded. They did a fine job of educating me on the entire litigation process. I highly recommend the Roth Firm.

Great experience
My experience with the Roth Firm was truly stellar. The Roth Firm worked seamlessly with my Medical Provider and neither ever "dropped the ball" while handling my case. I received courtesy status calls from the firm (without even asking). The customer service was excellent and the entire process was expedient yet thorough. Hopefully I won't get injured again, but if you or someone you know does, make it easy on yourself, call the Roth Firm.

Torrey Rainey
I had a great experience working with Torrey Rainey. He was very professional and attentive throughout my case. I had an awful experience with my previous lawyer and he gave me a renewed confidence in my representation. I would recommend him for any and all other prospective clients if they were to ask me.

Property Damage Claim
The Roth Firm! Words cannot express how this firm went above and beyond the call of duty. Particularly Torrey Rainey which did an amazing job with my property damage claim. Long story short on 7/25/17 I was hit by a DUI drunk driver, my vehicle was totaled my personal possessions in my car was stolen and my life changed forever! Torrey met me at the hospital to discuss all my options...he was nice, and very knowledgeable about my rights! He started working immediately getting me the necessary care that I needed for my injuries and a vehicle to drive until my claim was resolved. The at fault Insurance company was the worst they continued to give us the run around but Torrey stayed in communication with me nearly every day whether it was a phone call or a follow up email ! He physically went and picked up my settlement. As a single mother it was hard loosing transportation, taking time off and replacing items I worked years for...Let’s just say Torrey recouped all my monies and I also had a really large amount left over to deposit into my children’s college savings! The Roth Firm will always be my first point of contact for any legal issues I may have! God forbid that I have another accident but if I do Torrey will be my first call. Torrey has been a blessing to my family and I am thankful he was able to support me at my weakest point! Thanks Torrey -Avona T.

Mike Melonakos-Superb Lawyer
Mike Melonakos handled our case with excellency. He was very thorough and precise. He always returned your phone calls; and he was very patient and explained the details of your case to you consistently. Even though the first quarter of your case is a very quiet time, please know that Mike and Donna, his case manager, are working tirelessly to get you the best results and maximise your case. I would highly recommend anyone needing a lawyer to contact Mike Melonakos at the Roth Firm. From the beginning to the end, you feel like family. No matter how frustrated you become wanting it to end, he remains professional and understanding. He will assure you that you are in the best hands(and you are indeed). I can't express enough how caring and qualified this lawyer has been with my family. Thank you for being there and showing my family that you are a human first and lawyer second. If you want blockbuster results, call Mike. If not, go some where else!!! God bless you Mike and Donna.

Professionals, not gimmicky ambulance chasers
So...I got hit from behind at a red light and ended up in the emergency room. Considering the bombardment of radio and billboards ads for ambulance chasers, I was on the fence because I've never needed a lawyer before. After vising with my doctor the next day, he advised me to contact the Roth Firm to handle the situation. I had the pleasure of having Attorney Christopher Annunziata handle my case and he proved that that call was the right choice. They took care of EVERYTHING and relieved me of the headache of jumping through the post-car accident financial and legal hoops and loops. When it was all said and done, I didn't walk out the office an almost millionaire, but the level of customer service and peace of mind provided is well worth my busines in the future!

I hired the Best of the Best
I am so very pleased with the lawyer that i hired from this firm. My Lawyer communicated with me during the entire process. Whenever he was not available, once he received my message i got a call from him that day. My lawyer worked long and hard to get all my medical bills reduced. My lawyer was honest and presented me with all of my options up front. And the best part is that he reduced his fee! I am very satisfied and happy with the outcome.
