Automobile Crash
I was involved in a motor vehicle crash and was struck by a tractor trailer. I sustained a severe concussion and permanent damage to my vestibular system in the form of severe vertigo. After dealing with the insurance companies for two weeks, I called Mr. Feemster and he took over. He handled the insurance companies, secured a rental vehicle and followed up on my medical care. He was relentless in his investigation of the truck driver and the company that employed him. It was discovered that the driver was a habitual violator involved in several accidents involving injuries. We settled with the insurance companies and I was thrilled not to have to go through a jury trial. He kept us informed as the case progressed and I was pleased with his degree of professionalism.

Mr. Dwight Feemster
I had an insurance company and a rental car company on my back for about 4 months, over some damages that I did not do and a blown tire that I replaced out of pocket. I wanted the money for the tire and I think they were trying to find a way out of reimbursement. They were harassing and Mr. Feemster got them to back off and give me back the money that I was owed. Mr. Feemster does not play around. He is very savvy on Georgia automotive laws and traffic law as well. He will get the job done even against the "big boys". He has a great reputation for sticking up for his clients and representing them spot on.

CAR ACCIDENT WITH INJURIES
I was hit from behind on my way to work on January 22, 2014. My 2 year old car was totalled. I incurred neck pain and a pre-existing back condition was aggravated by the impact which eventually resulted in my having back surgery. The auto insurance companies, as they are prone to do, were being difficult and I felt I was being rail-roaded due to my lack of knowledge in this type situation as to responsible parties to injuries and damage incurred. Also, my medical insurance provider was being difficult since a 3rd party was involved. Dwight Feemster was recommended to me by someone I totally trust and so I gave him a call. At that point Dwight took over; he handled each issue promptly and professionally. I felt at ease knowing he was working this out for me. The entire process was completed in just a few months time, not years as I had expected. In short - Dwight Feemster is awesome! I would (and will) recommend him to anyone who needs legal help.

Right attorney for the job.
I have had the opportunity to have Mr. Feemster represent me on several occasions over the past 30 years. He has always been direct and honest with me in our encounters. I have come to trust his judgment completely. I recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking an attorney whom they can rely on to help them in their legal efforts.
