I am certainly "different". I do not have a huge volume law practice. I do not, nor do I claim to, handle every type of legal case imaginable. Each year, I agree to represent a limited number of injury accident victims. I am not a "personal injury mill". You will not see me on the back cover of the yellow pages, on T.V. or on billboards. For me, fewer cases mean more time for you and better results overall.

Since 1991, I have represented accident injury clients throughout Georgia. Most of the cases are...

I believe injury victims need a strong legal voice to protect their interests. However, I know the need for service does not stop there. Besides a voice, clients must have representation from a firm which also has a "legal ear" that actually listens to their needs and acts upon their requests. For that reason, clients who hire my law firm are provided direct access to me at all times. I feel that if a person is willing to trust my firm with the gravity of their real-life affairs, I should trust them with my home and cellular telephone numbers. After...

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare Appling attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
