Our Practice Areas include:
General Civil Litigation
Our lawyers are experienced in providing litigation
services and expert advice for civil claims
involving areas of practice that are not specifically
outlined in our other practice area descriptions.
Examples include eminent domain, land use,
boundary disputes, collection disputes, violations
of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, contract
claims and private nuisance claims.
We defend employers, insurers, self-insurers, third-party administrators
and captive insurance companies throughout Georgia
and Alabama against compensation
claims by employees. We provide an exceptional
level of service, strategy and analysis regarding
litigated claims, as well as advice regarding
claims management before litigation ensues.
Our services are reasonably priced and focus
on service-related success. Our attorneys and
staff provide top-quality legal service at a
reasonable rate, with a focus on providing value
and information to our clients.
We provide insurers, corporations and individuals
with reasonably priced defenses for civil liability
claims in all State and Federal Courts throughout
Georgia and Alabama. We recognize the dynamic
nature of the general liability landscape. Changes
in technology, legislation and judicial decisions
are constantly affecting issues related to liability
and damages. Our skilled litigators are able
to identify cases and defenses that shield our
clients from liability for bodily injury, property
damage and personal injury. We are proud of
our record of successfully defending liability
claims based on application of the doctrine
of contributory negligence, assumption of the
risk, the sudden emergency doctrine, and identification
of intervening causes. We are also skilled advocates
whose medical expertise allows us to effectively
reduce damage claims and assist in identifying
malingerers. We do not believe that you will
find better legal representation or value in
regard to your general liability needs.
We provide a broad spectrum of services to our
business clients. We can provide advice regarding
contract and transactional document review as well as advice and representation in litigated disputes.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest
quality of commercial litigation services at
a rate which is often a fraction of the cost
of other firms in the Atlanta area. Please contact
us to determine how we can increase your profitability
by reducing transaction costs attendant to commercial
litigation in which your business may be involved.
We are panel counsel for workers’ compensation
subrogation recovery for several major insurers
and third party administrators in Georgia
and Alabama. Georgia workers’ compensation
law requires that a plaintiff be “made
whole” as a prerequisite to workers'
compensation subrogation recovery. We provide
unparalleled advice and litigation service
to subrogated employers and insurers allowing
our clients to maximize their recovery by
successfully navigating the pitfalls inherent
in workers’ compensation subrogation
recovery in Georgia. Our experienced litigators
have pioneered novel theories of recovery
to minimize reduction of subrogation claims
due to the "made whole" doctrine.
We provide litigation services to Plan administrators
who maintain qualifying plans under the Employee
Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). We
provide full service regarding ERISA subrogation
including notification, calendar checklist,
intervention, and, if necessary, claims for
equitable relief and injunctive relief in
order to ensure recovery of Plan payments
made to Plan participants as a result of the
negligence or fault of third parties. We also
provide review and analytical opinions regarding
Plan document compliance with applicable Federal
statutes and case law.
Casualty/Uninsured Motorist Subrogation
We provide pre-litigation and litigation services
related to recovery of property and casualty
losses under auto, homeowners, maritime, uninsured
motorist and contract claims throughout Georgia
and Alabama. We are experienced in preparing
and presenting claims for alternate dispute
forums, such as Arbitration Forums, through
mediation and through formal arbitration.
We perform property and casualty subrogation
services on a contingent basis, on a flat
fee basis, on a fixed hourly basis, or a blended
rate basis depending on our clients' needs.
Please contact us to discuss how we can maximize
your recovery at a rate which increases your

Our expertise in both first and third party insurance coverage issues is driven by our commitment to providing our clients with the highest quality of legal service at a reasonable rate.

regarding bad faith insurance litigation. We
practice in all State and Federal Courts and

our clients in navigating the maze of bad faith
regulations in Georgia.
