Practice area

Warren was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. From a young age, Warren's family told him he was destined to be an advocate. Warren went to Little Rock Central High School, a national historic site, where he excelled academically and played multiple sports. Next, Warren went to Emory University for college and University of Georgia for law school on scholarship.

While in law school, Warren worked in 22nd Judicial Circuit Office of the Prosecuting Attorney in Benton, Arkansas. There, Warren tried and won his first case and helped prosecutors on cases ranging from felony murder to vehicular homicide. During his second and third years of law school, Warren worked at the Athens-Clarke County District Attorney's office, where he helped the felony prosecutors with trials and motions. Warren was noted bythe clinic director for his outstanding work in the District Attorney's office.

Following law school, Warren worked at Heifer International, one of the top-10 charities world-wide. After a successful stint at Heifer International, Warren began advocated for injured persons across Georgia. In 2016, Warren established The Abel Firm to represent people in Athens and across Georgia against corporations and wrong-doers.

From his raising as a child and his charity work, Warren has made a decision to dedicate a significant time of his practice to pro-bono work, including indigent defense and fair housing cases.

In his free time, Warren enjoys hiking with his 2 dogs, playing basketball and golf, and fishing.

Amazing
I had a car accident over a year ago and the lawyer prior to Mr. Abel did nothing. I was having to say on top of him to inform me of everything. Finally I reached out to Mr. Abel and he handled everything without question, without me having to stay on top of it myself and quickly settled my claim with a better outcome than I expected. I would 100% recommend him to my friends and family.

Great lawyer
From the first day that I spoke with attorney Warren, I knew that everything would work out. Warren was an outstanding communicator and explained everything in easy to understand terms. He wasn’t afraid to take my case to court to get the best result. He was amazing in the courtroom and we ended up getting the best result. I would recommend Warren to anyone.

The best attorney
Mr. Abel helped me far beyond the tremendous job he did on my case. After years of lawyers confirming the old adage of what we generally think of lawyers, he helped me realize that there are actually good lawyers in this world that do exist. The fact that it’s 2019 and I’m just now writing this review when my accident happened in 2012 speaks for itself of the experience I had before Warren got on my case—he was my lawyer for 5 months and in that short time got me the justice I deserved. He treated me like an actual person and not as just some other case. In doing so, Warren was able to truly convey my story and what I have lost as a result of my accident. That only happened because he cared of enough to listen and therefore cared enough to fight for me until the insurance company and their lawyers had no other choice but to pay out the full policy limits. Not only do I recommend Warren to anyone who’s been injured due to others’ negligence, I worry for those who don’t have him fighting for them. Great lawyer, even better person, and the true example of what every other lawyer should aspire to be. Although I can’t thank you enough for your help, thank you Warren!

No worries
Great attorney and a down to earth person. I never had to worry about what was going on. When I called, Warren always updated me about the case and let me know what to expect. I had I worries as far as what was happening. Courtney in his office was also excellent. Stayed in touch constantly. I would refer anyone to him. If I have any future problems, he will be the first to call.

Capable of pushing to trial
Warren pushed my case to trial and forced the insurance company to fairly compensate me for my injuries. By preparing my case for trial, Warren made the insurance offer three times the amount previous attorneys had received on the case. I appreciate his work.

Bad wreck during pregnancy
I was in a bad single car accident when I was pregnant. Went through two previous lawyers who didn't accomplish anything with my case. I turned to Warren who managed to get it fully resolved in a matter of months. I will always be thankful for his help in getting past this traumatic event.

Great, fast and efficient
He was a great lawyer, very efficient and resolved our case very fast. We were transferred to lawyer from lawyer and finally got to his hands and were very satisfied with how fast he handled everything and we came out very satisfied! We definitely recommend him to anyone. Loved his staff and his their ability to communicate with him since he didn't speak Spanish, he always had an interpreter.

car accident hit and run.
I was paying high insurance notes a month, and was hit off the road on highway 78 in Atlanta Ga. I was battling for my uninsured motorist for almost a year and had different litigation lawyers at the time. As soon as tgey were removed and warren and his team were placed on my case. I seen results almost immediately, within 5 to 6 months we had our sit down with safe auto. Within a month we had a acceptance on the offer for full amount. I am very greatful for Warren and his legal team!
