Results matter. But don’t let large numbers fool you. Most personal injury law firms, including us, have settled cases for large amounts. But all personal injury lawyers and law firms are not equal. ANY lawyer can get a $1 million settlement with a case worth $5 million. Very few lawyers have taken a case to trial. Even fewer have obtained verdicts that set records or force companies to change how they treat people.
Our firm specializes in catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims. We get better results for our clients because we take cases to trial and obtain large verdicts. Even if your case does not go to trial, the threat of a verdict will force a higher settlement. The results listed on this page are representative of the kinds of cases we handle and the amounts we obtain at trial. Call or text us at 404-888-4444 to start a conversation with one of our lawyers to see if we are a good fit for your case.
