About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Attorney Christopher Breault is widely viewed as one of the most effective trial lawyers of his generation. He received a six-figure jury verdict as lead counsel earlier in his career than any other lawyer in Georgia history.  He also received a seven-figure and multi seven-figure jury verdict earlier in his career that any other lawyer in Georgia history.  He is a second-generation trial lawyer from Columbus, Georgia whose law practice focuses on representing people in lawsuits against insurance companies and large corporations.


Chris is a product of the Columbus Public School System.  He grew up in south Columbus and moved to the north side of town at age 13.  He dropped out of high school after only completing the 9th grade and went to work as a concrete construction worker.  In his late teens, Chris went back to school and earned a GED.  He then went to Columbus Technical College and Columbus State University.  He eventually tranferred to the University of Georgia on a Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Political Philosophy, Chris attended the University of Georgia School of Law. During law school, he worked as a felony prosecutor in the Athens District Attorney's Office, and was one of the founding officers and President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Student Chapter. 


Shortly after law school graduation, Chris went to work as an Associate in the Downtown Atlanta office of a nationally-renowned trial lawyer and children's advocate whose firm has garnered national recognition for obtaining verdicts and settlements of $1,000,000 or more in 257 different cases. While there, he worked exclusively on seven and eight-figure medical malpractice, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, products liability, and truck wreck cases.  He now has his own practice in Athens and Columbus, Georgia.  The vast majority of his work involves helping people who have been catastrophically injured.

I had been offered a very little amount to settle my case and this attorney was able to turn it from $500 to $13,000. They were able to turn this around in a matter of months after being transferred to them. I appreciate the effectiveness and speediness, and also taking interest in my case unlike other lawyers.

The best lawyer.
My case was originally taken by Kanner and Pintaluga, and they were unable to resolve it, so it was sent over to Chris. The case took some time, but he got it resolved. Not only did he get me the maximum amount for my first settlement, but he also got an offer for a second settlement, for the same accident. He is hard working, although he doesn't always call he is always working on the case. Good job Chris.

Wow! Best Lawyer!
We are really happy with the service we received here. We were with another lawyer before and Chris rescued our case. They were going to withdraw it, and Chris took over and it has been great. The case was going to take 3 years and this lawyer moved really quickly in getting everything taken care of. We are really happy with the work he has done. Great lawyer! Good money and fast!

All Charges Dismissed
I was falsely charged with 6 different counts of battery after an alleged fight in downtown Athens. Chris came highly recommended by people in my family. I was facing jail time and losing my job. Chris took the case to trial and the prosecutor dismissed all the charges. He did a great job talking to all the witnesses and finding video footage of what happened. I would recommend him to anyone! He really cares and is willing to fight for people in court.

Charges dropped.Steve, Columbus, Ga
When I hired Chris I'd never met him in person.I did my research and read reviews about his experience and ability to get cases dropped which guided me to hire him.he pretty much showed up for all of my cases without me being present which was perfect for me since I work out of state. Hes very prompt in returning my phone calls and constantly giving me updates. I've never been arrested in my life but I had two felony cases pending which were eventually dismissed and to help me maintain a clean criminal record. .I would definitely recommend him.Thanks alot for your services.

Felony case dismissed.
My names is James and while I was still in the Army I was charged with two major felonies with a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. I was referred to Mr. Breault by a friend and I can honestly say I owe this man my life. My wife and I couldn't be more great flu for his responsiveness and care toward my case. Not only was he flexible with my income after getting out of the army and not making much money but he was tentative and vigilant in getting my case dismissed. I will recommend Mr. Breault to anyone needing a legit and great attorney . Thank you again for your support and council in this case Chris.

Best lawyer of Georgia!!!!
Chris did a great job on my case. Another law firm had my case for two years and could not get the insurance company to take me seriously. Chris took my case and immediately filed a lawsuit. Within 4 months, I settled my case for ten times more than the other law firm was going to get me! If you want someone who truly cares about the client and do a good job, call Chris!!

Number 1 Lawyer
After over a year in a half of dealing with a car accident situation and getting no where, Mr. Breault took over my case and I was handed a check in a matter of a couple of months. He communicated with me through the whole process. If ever in need of a car accident attorney he is the man to call.

Best Car Accident Attorney Ever! Hard working and get results quickly!
Another law firm had my case for almost two years. The insurance company offered to settle my case for less than my medical bills. I wasn't going to get anything. I didn't think this was fair after how bad I was hurt in the car wreck. I reached out to Chris to see if he would help on my case. After taking my case, Chris got the insurance company to settle for more than twice what the other firm was going to get me. I got my medical bills paid and I took home THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS more. And he did it within a few weeks.

Chris Breault - The Best and Most Affordable Choice
Chris is an amazing choice for a lawyer. He was helpful, insightful, and absolutely got me the best deal I could ask for. He went out of his way to be the best lawyer he could be and I highly recommend him to anyone in need. He is also affordable! I found myself in trouble for a somewhat major drug offense, and being a college student, I didn't know who to turn to. He gave me great legal advice and ended up representing me at court as my lawyer. He worked with me on a price I could afford and he got me twice as good a deal as we were hoping for. I couldn't have asked for better help.

Excellent Strategy & The Upmost Professionalism
I hired Mr. Breault earlier this year for a civil matter. His overall approach and strategy was excellent. He kept me informed and updated during the entire process from start to finish. In my previous experience I have had issue with accessibility and basic communication with attorneys. Mr. Breault was at the other end of the spectrum. He excels in breaking things down to his clients and always has various options to approach the case and keeps his clients abreast of all aspects of the legal process. I highly recommend his legal expertise for anyone dealing with a civil case.

Highly Impressed
I recently hired Chris as my lawyer in a very complicated and time-sensitive case. With short notice, Chris assured me he was the man for the job. I was extremely happy with the results that Chris achieved, all I had to do was show up and he did all the work. Having his personal cell phone number made me feel connected and confident in Chris as my attorney. Hopefully I will not need representation in the future but I assure you that if I do, I will be calling Chris Breault first with no doubt that he will handle the job diligently.
