We take great pride in representing real people with real injuries.
With over 35 years of experience in working personal injury, medical malpractice and workers compensation claims, I am able to offer exceptional insight on your case. I have spent my entire legal career in Macon, GA, and so as a result, I am exceptionally familiar with handling cases in Bibb County, throughout Georgia, and on a Nationwide basis.
In 2013 I was awarded the largest verdict throughout the state of Georgia. While this was a tremendous victory for my firm, the true victory was in helping the family through the loss of their son. Personal injury matters can be complex, difficult and emotionally taxing for all parties involved. By selecting The McArthur Law Firm, you can be assured that our skills will be focused 100% on maximizing the compensation that you deserve.
