Simply The Best
Simply The Best!! Professional, caring and intelligent. Mr. Cleveland was my attorney and before I knew him I didn’t know attorneys were honest and have a heart. Mr. Cleveland represented me with his heart and when an Attorney does that you know what, everything is going to be ok. You have no worries, you know you’re in good hands. Mr. Cleveland was honest up front and all the way to the very end. I will always be grateful, and thankful for the services he provided. Also the staff is extremely courteous and on point making sure all my messages and needs were met. Sometimes in life you feel like you can’t trust anyone but after meeting and having Mr. Cleveland as my attorney I can look at the world much differently. Thank You all for everything I’m so very appreciative.

Wonderful to Consult
Mr. Cleveland never met me before and didn't know what I was calling about. He was attentive and very helpful and polite. I have not had such a nice response from any other attorney so far.

Professional and Effective
Mr. Cleveland was great. He was very attentive and responsive to all of my questions and the details of my case. I was in an auto accident with multiple other vehicles. My car was totalled and I sustained a ruptured spleen. Mr. Cleveland worked with the person at fault's insurance company as well as mine to reach a fair and adequate settlement. Mr. Cleveland's assistant was also excellent. Both of them walked me through and fully explained the process, keeping me well-informed all along the way.

Best decision ever
Mr Cleveland made what was a nightmare experience into the best happy ending. Straight shooter with the interests of the client being top priority. With one meeting, I knew I had the best trial lawyer in Georgia. And i never even got to a trial. His staff was just as attentive to me needs. I was always in constant communication with his office and always received a call back within 24 hours. If not the same day. They never made me feel like I was too needy. Always eager to make ME understand what was going on. In fact, they called me more then I call them for updates. He never promised me anything that was unattainable. His interest and care was genuine. I have no regrets in my decision. I highly recommend him.

I highly endorse Alan
I have known Alan for many years as an Attorney colleague and I have observed Alan as he has represented many of his clients during Mediations. Alan is an outstanding advocate for his clients. He always goes the extra mile to represent his clients to the fullest. He is committed to ethics and professionalism is highly regarded by his clients, opposing counsels, and the Courts. I highly recommend Alan to any person seeking an Attorney for serious personal injuries and wrongful death claims.

Dog bite
Alan had our best interest and represented that interest in the case. He told us up front what to expect not only on how the case would develop and the expected settlement level but also 'soft' issues such as interpersonal relationship impacts. There were no surprises. Alan had an excellent strategy for the case and was very diligent and responsive. If we ever have another event requiring representation Alan will be the only call we will make. We are pleased to say that not only did Alan represent us well, he was very personable and at the end we felt like we were being represented by a friend as well as our attorney.
