About me


James Haug is a rising star of the Georgia Legal Community. Since being barred in Georgia, he has achieved major victories, including receiving a verdict in excess of one million dollars in one of the most difficult personal injury practice areas in one of the more conservative counties against one of the biggest medical malpractice insurance companies in the nation. 

In 2013, James settled over a million dollars in catastrophic injury cases involving dismembering of body parts, disc fusion surgeries and other terrible injuries. James sole goal is to seek fair compensation for his clients and insure that the big insurance companies give the proper compensation for cases.

James works closely with his friend and mentor, Eric J. Hertz, the author of the Georgia Law of Damages and one of the preeminent trial attorneys in Georgia. Please call James R. Haug at 404-577-8111 to discuss your case.

  • Roger W. Orlando

    Jimmy came out into his own law firm swinging. And his very first medical malpractice verdict was over the fence (in excess of $1,000,000.00!) Since then, his skills in this and other areas have only increased and Jimmy has been able to serve more clients injured by medical negligence to complete satisfaction (as good as it can get notwithstandiing their unfortunate injury circumstances). I highly recommend James Haug.
