About Jerry

Learn Jerry’s areas of practice.

Located in Macon, GA my team is here  to help you with all your legal needs.  We are located in Macon in the heart of Middle Georgia.  Our location allows us to service clients throughout the state of Georgia.  Our goal is to provide excellent legal services in the Middle Georgia area and provide zealous advocacy for all our clients.

I practice as an Immigration Attorney, Employment Attorney, DUI Attorney, Transportation Attorney (DOT/CDL issues, traffic offenses.). My team also practices with the formation of LLCs and Corporations, Drafting of Wills and other related documents, Probate and Administration of Wills and Estates and Transaction work.

If you have been arrested for DUI, be cautious! As a DUI Attorney, I have learned that it is not uncommon for sheriff's employees to be called as witnesses for the state.  Do not carry on conversations with the booking officer or any other officer, CALL YOUR DUI ATTORNEY.  The friendliness or casual conversation of these officers may turn on you in support of the opinion of the arresting officer as to the driver's condition. Do not discuss the events of the evening. REMAIN SILENT AND ASK FOR A DUI ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY!  Even a telephone call to an experienced DUI ATTORNEY may provide you with enormous benefits.  Remember anything you say can and will be used against you!


The law office of J Britt Thames represents injury victims throughout Georgia. Our personal injury and wrongful death practice focuses on serious personal injury cases, car and truck accidents, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims.

Amazing Lawyer
I hired Mr. Thames for a serious traffic charge (DUI). While handling this case another unfortunate event lead to another traffic charge (Driving without a valid license). Both charges could have effected my employment greatly. Mr. Thames helped me immensely on a professional and personal level. He made sure everything dealing with the court was handled although I was out of state and lead me through the court process so I would understand everything that was going on. In the end one charge was reduced drastically to a small fine, the other charge was dropped and my arrest records were restricted. I have no doubt this situation could've been devastating without Mr. Thames help. Thank you very much Mr. Thames. I recommend anyone reading this to speak with Mr. Thames regarding your situation.
