Call Us For A Free Consultation 

We offer free consultations in all matters and accept most personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis – we don’t collect an attorney’s fee unless we win a settlement or verdict for you. Our firm has grown through referrals from past clients, other attorneys, and other professionals. Our experience and skill enable us to handle even highly technical cases such as serious automobile collisions, commercial trucking accident litigation, or catasrophic cases under the workers’ compensation system.

Our criminal defense practice caters both to the University of Georgia community and to ordinary people in the counties surrounding Athens. Our practice has a definite local focus, and we don’t apologize at all for the advantage we enjoy through our long familiarity with the local courts and procedures.

For detailed information about your legal options in any criminal defense or personal injury situation, call us at 706-543-8596 or fill out our short form for a free consultation.
