Not only did you and Donna find me Medical Care but folks The Doctors Mr. Branch brought in to take care of me was considered to be one of the BEST Neurosurgeons in the State of Georgia. Mr. Joshua Branch doesn't "just talk the talk, but walks the walk." Not at anytime did I fell as if; I was Not Totally begin taken care of and was in excellent Hands with this Attorney and his staff. I don't have the words too express my great GRADITUDE TO Mr. Joshua Branch . If one finds themselves in need of great legal Representation ' LOOK NO FUTHER, YOU'VE FOUND HIM.

Simply Amazing Lawyer
Josh was amazing from start to finish. He's the perfect example of A constant professional. It started with A no B.S. consultation, were he evaluated my case and developed a draft of what he can do help me get the settlement I deserved. Everything Mr. Branch said he would and could do he did it! The thing I love most about Mr. Branch's law firm was that he always kept me in the loop with details at every stage in the process. Also he responded rapidly through email and over phone calls. His staff is very nice and knowledgeable with your personal case. I share so many laughs with Donna who's such A sweet woman, and Linda was phenomenal as well. At no point did I feel like I was being handled like another number in line. I never was made to feel if I called that I was being bothersome. I consider the Branch law firm family. After surgery from my car accident they called as well as sent me A get well card. That right there is priceless to me and shows you that your more than A client to them your family. Josh was able to successfully help me receive a $100,000 due to the negligence of A driver that ran A stop sign and T-Bone me, After having 7 months of therapy and ulnar nerve surgery. I love you guys and I thank you for all your hard work. I'll recommend you guys 100 times out of 100 to anyone in need of legal representation.

Car accident
My family was in an accident and a friend referred us to Mr. Branch. Mr. Branch and his office was very professional and kind. His office stayed on top of my case and they always answered my questions. Mr. Branch settled my case in a timely fashion. Even after my case was settled and I had problems with the insurance company, his office was there for my family. I would definitely refer his office to my family and friends if an accident or emergency arises.

Personal injury
I am not the type of person who would file a personal injury claim and was very nervous when my son-in-law recommended it. While visiting my daughter and son-in-law, I sustained an injury requiring surgery, while on a walk, that resulted from an unconfined dog on a property. Josh was amazingly empathetic and sympathetic to my situation. He explained what I was signing in detail and gave me the time to carefully look it over. It took the nervousness completely away. He updated me periodically when required and consulted with me every step of the way. He and his office worked very hard to secure a settlement that I was not expecting and very happy with in the end. He and his staff were very respectful at all times, very friendly, always professional and extremely thorough. I would recommend Josh and his entire team.

Property Damage Claim
We were fortunate enough to have Mr Branch represent our company after an employee was hit in a car accident. Mr Branch went above and beyond in dealing with the insurance company, who did their best to get out of paying. In the end, a settlement was reached due to the commitment of Mr Branch to making sure people aren't pushed around by big insurance companies. Can't thank Mr Branch enough!

Arrotney for Defendant(Me)
WOW!! What a team Joshua Branch has.. From the time I contacted his office regarding my case, I never doubted that he would prevail. Now, six months later, the attorney suing me has dismissed his case. That is entirely because of the knowledge of Mr Branch and his assistant, Donna. They kept me informed of the ongoing actions they were doing on the case and the final resolution. They are extremely professional and down to earth with their clients. I will always know who to call if I ever or any family or friends ever need an attorney. I will always be grateful for their help in my time of need.

our personal injury attorney
We hired Joshua Branch after an automobile accident. I tried to deal with the insurance company myself but that didn't work out. Joshua came to our home to discuss our case. It took a little over 2 years to settle but we were updated regularly and I always got to talk to Josh or Donna anytime I called. My questions for answered promptly and accurately. I would recommend him to anyone needing a personal injury attorney.

Joshua Branching is a Blessing!
I was in an accident caused by another driver; my car was totaled, and my pain started the day after the accident. I saw my primary care for pain and was instructed I would need to pay out of pocket even though I was insured. I was sent for an MRI and told the same thing again, I was in pain, tears and had no car. I am 56 and had never hired an attorney before the accident. I was blessed to find Joshua and Donna his assistant. I met with him and his staff, they were kind, caring and offered their services for help. I did not feel pressured and hired him shortly after our meeting. Hiring Joshua was the best thing I could have ever done. He helped me with everything from dealing with insurance agents to receiving a generous settlement at the end. He truly cares about his clients. Thank you, Jesus, Joshua, and Donna!

Best Attorney to win your case!
Joshua Branch and his staff were very helpful with my case; From the time I first contacted Attorney Branch, he communicated everything about the case with with, stayed in contact and I never felt uncomfortable or out of the loop. When my 2yr old son was injured at a daycare, I was lost on where to even began to seek help. Upon settling my claim, I was awarded more than I even imagined. I know he has a vast number of clients yet, he still made me feel important. I intend to use him in the future as well as recommend them to my family and friends.

Good Guy
We were involved in an simple accident resulting in the loss of our car and a few aches, pains and stiff joints...I tried to work with the insurance company and to my dismay, they were totally against just about everything! I warned them once then hired Josh...he took over and I had nothing to do with them again... When I was working with them all I wanted was medical expenses and car rental, about $15,000. When he took over they paid for my car and Josh got us a 6 digit check within 6 months. I'm not a person who believes in suing, but I do believe in doing what is right. They didn't want to pay for our medical or car rental, I told them they would one way or the other. I would highly recommend Josh to handle your issues...he's not an "ambulance chaser" like the guys on TV. He just wants what's fair....

Best lawyer I have ever met
2.5 years into my lawsuit my original firm closed his practice and I had to seek new counsel. I found Joshua through a recommendation from my previous disability attorney. When we met initially, Joshua was very upfront about my case already being so far along and it would be a difficult case but he would help in any way possible. After the meeting my wife and I had a great feeling about Joshua. This great feeling was even greater when he contacted us back to say he'd represent us. He additionally sought assistance on our case from Tim Hall whom was everything Josh told us and more! Before we spoke with Joshua I was in a very tough spot in my life. I had been through many back surgeries and injections and at times I had lost all hope that I would ever get better. I can't say enough of how much support Joshua and Tim gave me. They were always saying to keep looking forward because things will get better. Even when I was going through a rough patch they were always there to talk to me and help me through it. In the end they did everything they said they were going to do and helped me get my life back. My family will always be thankful for what they did for us and my wife and kids are happy they got their husband and dad back.
