About Donald

Learn Donald’s areas of practice.

I am proud to be a personal injury litigation attorney. I only represent people who have been injured due to the negligence of others.  I strive to represent my clients as if they were my friends or family.   I feel like I can provide better service and attention to a client's case because I am a small law office and I can be very careful about not taking on too many cases at any one time like so many of the "TV" lawyers do.  In my spare time, I became a certified volunteer firefighter for the county where I previously lived. I also obtained my Wildland Firefighter certification.  I am proud of this and my service to my community.  I was born in Atlanta and now live in Sandy Springs,Georgia with my wife, son and daughter. Please let me know how I can help you!

Car Accident
I had the opportunity of briefly working with Mr. Singleton regarding a car accident. He walked me through the process on what to do to best fight. Since my accident was unlike other's, he suggested I take them to a small claims court myself to fight and guided me on the steps to do so. He was available at last minute for me and guided me through the steps on what should happen next. Thank you

(S.A.)Super Attorney!!
To go to personal injury lawyer is no fun because you have been hurt. Don has represented me on 2 separate occasions. He is the ultimate attorney, which is why I have used his services myself and referred him many times and will continue to. He thoroughly explained everything to me and made sure that I completely understood. He took the bull by the horns and got me a very fair settlement. He is always available either by phone or email. There are other goid attorneys, byt only one Don Singleton S.A. !! I highly recommend him. You won't be sorry.

Great experience!
Walked into Mr. Singleton's office, without an appointment, and asked his advice regarding a no-fault auto accident. He advised me, which ended up as good advice. We had a nice conversation about his passion, mountain climbing. He refused my offer to pay for his time. Thanks Don!

Honorable, respectful and knowledgable law practice
Mr. Singleton is a first rate person, friend and lawyer. He is a down to earth, realistic and easy to understand lawyer. He thoroughly reviewed my case, gathered necessary witnesses and evidence and is proceeding forward with a strong case. He gas chosen to bring in a fellow lawyer to aid the case and increase it's strength. Though the case has not settled, I wanted to let others know how pleased I am with my representation. Also, hIs paralegal, Lisa, is a great asset to his office.

Completely Satisfied Client
This was the first and only time that I have gone to a lawyer in my life. I was badly injured in a car accident and as I started conversations with my insurance company as well as the person at fault's insurance company I felt very uncomfortable with the whole process. When I first set foot in Mr. Singleton's office I told him that I was very reluctant to hire a lawyer. From the very start Mr. Singleton's primary interest was to ensure that I got the care that I needed and that I was fairly compensated for all care related to the car accident injuries. Matters got even more complicated since mid way through my treatment, I was involved in a second accident that was again not my fault making it very difficult to prove to which extent the first accident or second accident contributed to my injuries. My care and treatment lasted over 1 year and Mr. Singleton was very patient again ensuring all my symptoms were taken care of before moving to on to next steps. Mr. Singleton successfully negotiated on my behalf to the fullest extent possible and with him worrying about all the details and negotiations I could focus on my recovery. I trust Mr. Singleton completely and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney. I hope that I do not need a lawyer again, but if I do my first call will be to Mr. Singleton.

Thankful I had support of a very effective personal injury attorney, Don Singleton
Following my accident (with a Lady, DUI and over twice the legal limit coming head-on into my windshield), my car damages exceeded $ 9.000.00 and I was very shaken and having neck and shoulder pain from the whiplash injuries. I did not think I needed an Attorney, however, with doctor and emergency room visit bills piling up and little help from insurance companies, I did a lot of research and asking around and selected the Singleton Law Firm, Alpharetta, GA., to assist me. Throughout my business and personal career decisions, I really appreciate that this Law Firm selection was my best decision from the start through to the mediation settlement with the insurance company. I was kept aware of all issues, dates and the consultations timely. Don Singleton and his attorney, paralegal staff and private investigator resources proved to be very helpful in my understanding of what was going on during the case I sincerely thank them. William, VP & General Manager, Suwanee, GA.

Dependable Attorney
My impression of Mr. Singleton is that he has used his twenty plus years of service and experience to create a unique bond and trust with his clients and the community he serves. A deffinate first choice for legal advice. Sincerely, Cynthia

Great Lawyer!!!
Don Singleton helped me in a car accident case. He kept me informed, and got my more money than I thought I would receive from the case. He got all my medical bills lowered tremendously. He is overall a very nice person, and is there to help you. I would defiantly recommend him!

Complete confidence!
I had the opportunity to work with Don for several years before I needed his legal services so it was not a hard decision to hire him to appeal a case for me. Although I had a slanted impression of "personal injury" lawyers, after seeing Don in action in my court case, I realized how much work goes into preparing to represent a client and how organized he is. He was very respectful not only to the court but also other lawyers and people in the court. Very professional but still very personable too! Would recommend him to my friends.

Great Attorney !
From my first phone contact with Mr. Singleton my case was handled in the most professional way. He answered all questions and concerns and made a stressful situation an easy to understand process. I would happily recommend anyone to Mr. Singleton for a smart, confident, professional attorney.

Excellent Representation
Mr. Singleton is a god send, and a wonderful person he represents us and our 10yr old daughter. We feel that he has treated us like people rather than another case. He responds to calls and emails in a timely manner and he also keeps us informed of what is going on in our case. He has sat down with us on several occasions to explain what is going on in our court case. I would highly recommend Mr. Singleton and we would also use him again if the need ever arose. Thank you Mr. Singleton for everything that you have done for us over the last year!!!!

A Great Attorney With Even Greater Results.
I hoped I would never need a lawyer, but when problems came up with a company that wouldn't make things right... I'm glad I met Donald Singleton. He helped my family twice (Not counting the times he gave us advice over the phone to help avoid legal problems) Don closed out my case with surprisingly better results than I was expecting. He fought my legal positions hard and really kept in touch throughout the process. When my daughter's employer did something unthinkable, he helped her manage thru the difficult times, and then made times very difficult for the ex-manager, (who is no longer working or allowed in the US) and did not let them or their attorneys get away with anything. If you're on the fence about and attorney to go with, I would recommend calling Don for a quick discussion about your case. In those few minutes you'll see why I'm raving and rating him 5-Star Excellent.

Trustworthy, honest, kind services
I had never been in an accident before and didn't know where to start. I contacted Mr. Singleton and he was helpful right from the beginning to the end of my case. I would use his services again for any furture legal issues that I may have.

Don is a great lawyer!
I would never use anyone else. Don kept me up to date on everything in my case. He gave great advice and kept my best interest in mind. He also answered all my phone calls, even if they became excessive. To me it was very important to have a lawyer that was always willing to answer my questions and talk to me. I also like the fact that although he is very professional, he was also someone i could joke around with. i still keep in touch with him and will use him in the future if i ever need to. i feel he got me everything i deserved in my case and reccomend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

DUI lawyer
Mr. Singleton's firm represented me in a DUI case in which I was the victim. I live in California so everything had to be done long distance. His firm was always easy to contact and corresponded my emails almost immediately at all times. They kept me abreast of all goings on and closed out my case in a timely fashion. Although I do feel that we settled for less than we should have, I definitely would recommend him to represent those closest to me.

I do not recommend Don Singleton
I called Mr Singleton based on his advertisement as a Marty injury attorney, later learning he had won a 25 million dollar settlement against Marta. I'm the victim of very serious MARTA injuries and Mr Singleton is very well aware of these injuries, and my being assailed on Marta him also exclaiming that he's represents negligent security. Singleton revealed to me approximately a month and a half ago that he is in the middle of the an appeal on the $25 million MARTA judgment that could result in him attaining an additional $5 million dollars Singleton stated for me to go to injury finance they made a claim on legal telephone recordation that I was asking them to commit a fraud which I never did never even hinted at: I want to know the terms of their contract with treating physicians. Singleton declared we could use his lien, twice, then he sent me back to injury finance then he said we can use his lien; Singleton flipped four times; I do not have family and I am significantly injured working as a V Corona Virus Examiner at a major Atlanta area courthouse and Singleton knows this. Using Care Connect, they connected with Atlanta Medical Center they drug me also the same as injury finance: Singleton approved of them. I made it cleat I am documented to have complex regional pain syndrome type 1 and have never sought opiates at any time during the last 10 years per documentation and I've had three clean urine tests in the past year. and stated I would be willing to take tests now a non-prescriber with ortho sports and spine who don't approved refused opiates prior to our meeting: I describe my pain as on the McGill pain scale (0 to 50 and above). Singleton glip-flopping between finance and his liens I am now at least an additional 2 months out from specialist care: after dismissing Singleton for cause, he declares 'I'm at the emergency room with my son and I will not text you any more call me in the morning.' Do not ever have a phone conversation with a lawyer unless you have a recorder running (legal in Georgia). An absolute user and money maniac a user of the injured and complete jerk. when I met him he was very kind and nice I think he's got problems I won't say where they are but Don if you don't like what I'm saying I've got the papers I've got the text I've got the messages I've got the records, but I sure don't have any medical care because of you and your going back and forth with me four times between injury financing and liens and you know I work at a courthouse: You know I'm already going to sue you and if you want to go on to court that's fine but right now I want 2.5 million dollars USD at once. I do not recommend Don Singleton, go elsewhere. and please don't I hope you don't have your friends get on this and make you look good and I hope you don't write to them but as of right now you have physically harmed me and you owe me two and a half million dollars your share of that $25 million settlement and I want your portion of that additional 5 million you're expecting as well. Lawyers are going to learn don't harm their clients Paul Hale, AS (HSci) 12 Year Atlanta Emergency Medical Technician

Response from Donald Singleton October 30, 2020
I'm very sorry that Mr. Hale feels that we did not do all we could for him in the time frame that he wanted. As with all things, there are two sides to this story. This one star review is not an accurate reflection of how we represent our clients. Mr. Hale, if you wish to discuss this further, please call me at the office 770-889-6010.
