As a seasoned personal injury lawyer, I have seen what happens when injured people fail to seek experienced and aggressive representation. Many frequently sign away their rights or settle for far less than they should without fully understanding the value of their case. Do not make that mistake! Results matter.

From drunk driving accidents to dog bites to construction site injuries, I'm on your side. Give us a call and put us to work for you.

Thank you
I was pleased with the service and the professionalism of this group. They were quick to get back with me, when I had questions. They fought to get as much as possible in my settlement and I felt like they were concerned about my well being and gave me good advice.

Legal Case
Great team of professionals at this office. Brad and all of his team worked hard to get the case for my 90 year old dad settled. I recommend Brad McLelland for any type of vehicle accident or workman's comp case.

Successful End to Difficult Battle
My husband was injured on the job after 15 years of employment, originally hired with a pre-existing medical condition, requiring special conditions limiting his capability to perform certain types of physical labor. The privately owned company decided they would no longer stand behind their original employment agreement, forcing my husband into many hurtful situations, the last of which caused him to be unable to work. They denied him workers compensation coverage causing our family a tremendous amount of hurt, anxiety and stress, as he was no longer able to work and bring in a paycheck. Needless to say, our case was a very difficult one. During the midst of the battle, new and unexpected evidence arose, making the task even more troublesome. After struggling through a very tough and arduous battle for over a year, we have finally reached the end. Although this was a very demanding and problematic injury case, Brad McLelland and his staff stuck with us throughout the whole time. They were able to bring our injury case to a very successful end with a settlement. We are very grateful to Brad and his staff & want to thank them all for their tremendous support of us throughout this emotionally and physically draining time in our lives. We recommend them highly should you need to seek counsel.

Excellent Team!
I drove my Brads office daily, this is how I came to hire him. I had spent over a year on workers comp. Once my second surgery for my injury was denied I went in for a meeting. Brad, Jessie and the rest of the team are amazing. They immediately took the reigns from me. I felt a huge burden lift knowing I was in good hands. I was no longer being bullied by the insurance company, being called at 2am, basically living in fear everyday. My case just closed with a win. I hope I don't ever need a lawyer of Brad's expertise again, but if I do, no question this firm will be who I will have represent me.

Pleasant Law Firm that gets the job done!
Brad and his staff were very pleasant to work with. Initially I was worried that I was going to get stuck with a lot of medical bills but Brad reassured me through meetings and constant communication that I wouldn't be. His friendly and knowledgeable staff was always there to answers any questions and concerns my family and I had. My settlement was more than I anticipated and I am medical bill free. I cannot thank or recommend the Law Office of Brad S. McLelland enough.

A huge help in a time of need from a caring professional team!
After a terrible automobile wreck, Brad and his staff were absolutely amazing! I can't say enough wonderful things about Jessie, Julie, and of course, Brad! Brad worked tirelessly to not only help direct me to the medical professionals that were so helpful, but also was very nuanced and delicate with all of his negotiations to help me receive the best settlement possible. If you are in need of a lawyer who is professional, courteous, firm, and a masterful negotiator, then Brad is your man! I am most appreciative of his help. I highly recommend Brad and his entire staff.

Absolutely excellent attorney and team
I can honestly say that I am incredibly happy that we chose to get help from Brad and his team. They are extremely professional and really know what they are doing. They respond quickly and always make my wife and I feel like family. They are also some of the kindest and most compassionate people we have met. My wife had to contact Jessie after our settlement for some help regarding our case and Jessie went above and beyond to help my wife out and answer her questions. If you are looking for an excellent attorney and team, please choose Brad and his team.

Thank you Brad!
We had a great experience in our first and hopefully last use of a lawyer. Brad and Jessie were great throughout the entire process. They set reasonable expectations and provided regular updates. The constant communication and willingness to listen really set him apart from other lawyers we had talked to about our case during our selection phase. Our case took over three years to conclude, and Brad and Jessie were with us every step of the way. We were always confident in the eventual outcome, and Brad exceeded even our wildest expectations. I cannot recommend him enough. His knowledge of the law, experience, and straightforward approach was a welcome change from the problems were encountered in our case prior to bringing him on board. We cannot thank you again for the wonderful experience. Thank you!

A law firm that was like family.The things that they did for my family was amazing.The average law firm would not have done what they did for us. The situation was scary and we did not I know what the outcome would be but they made us feel comfortable.The firm helped set our children up with annuities that would help them for the rest of their lives.The monetary value that the firm helped us get was unbelievable.Professionalism that was displayed through the firm was of the highest quality.

Workers Comp Case
I was searching for a lawyer to handle my workers comp case when I found the Law Office of Brad McLelland. He had other good reviews so I decided to give his office a call and set up a meeting. From the moment I met Brad I could tell that he was confident he could win my case and that he really wanted to help me after my employer put me in a bad situation. Brad made everything easy. I didn't have to worry about dealing with my employer, doing any paperwork or anything else. He quickly resolved my case and I am more than happy with the outcome. I cannot recommend Brad McLelland enough to someone who is looking for a lawyer that will truly fight for them.

After my car accident
The staff has been very helpful and prompt with phone calls. My case is still in the works from a car wreck from 2 yrs ago due to my injury. Jesse and Brad have put in lots of research and time working with my Doctor. They have listened to my input and answered questions from the research I have looked into, about my injury, and the time frame that I still have to put under my belt. The staff has worked with me as if we are a team, it is not a fast turn around, for my case, because of the extent of my injury. I'm so thankful for Brad, and his staff.

Auto accident
My family was involved in a horrible accident with a semi-truck, which caused the deaths of my girlfriend and her son, and it nearly took my mother's life. Brad McLelland and his paralegal, Jessie, helped us every step of the way, from the first meeting and beyond settlement. They showed our family such compassion and we never doubted that they were doing the best for us. Mr. McLelland is a local attorney, which made it easy to speak with him any time we needed to and convenient to have all our needs met. Mr. McLelland ensured that my mother had the best medical care and dealt with the investigation and insurance companies so that we could focus on grieving and healing. When it came time for settling our cases, Brad was aggressive with the at-fault driver and the insurance companies involved and ensured that our family was taken care of for many years to come. I can't think of anyone else I would've wanted in our corner during the worse time in our lives. If you've been injured or Lord forbid lost someone as a result of an accident like we did, I recommend calling Brad McLelland.

Brad went above & beyond for me
I was in an accident and Mr. Brad represented me. As a teen I was scared to death and didn't know what to do, but he helped me so much with figuring out who to treat with and walked me through it all. As soon as I was done treating he settled my case. The guy that hit me was from another state and didn't have the minimum limits that Georgia requires and Mr. Brad knew the law and made his insurance extend the Georgia limits to me. If I'm ever in another accident or hurt in any way, I will call Mr. Brad. And his paralegal, Jessie Williams, is the best! Thank you Mr. Brad and Ms. Jessie for helping me!
