WHY THE FOCUS
ON TRUCK WRECKS?

In my experience, truck accident
victims need the most support

The fact of the matter is that government regulations aren't up to par when it comes to situations like truck accidents — at least not yet, anyway. I aim to do my part in making sure justice is served in the courtroom on behalf of injured victims.

I’m fighting to make trucking companies uphold higher safety standards

The truth is that if safety standards were better we would see fewer accidents and fewer families suffering. For me, every win takes us another step closer to getting those standards revised. I'm in this to make a long-term difference one case at a time.

I believe that both truckers & other drivers should be protected

Driving is a privilege — not a right — and that goes for anyone behind the wheel. When drivers don't take the necessary precautions to ensure safety on their part, consequences should ensue. My goal is to protect everyone who is hurt due to negligence.

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

WHO PAYS MY MEDICAL BILLS?

Between insurance and other compensation you could receive, your medical bills should be taken care of.

WHEN SHOULD I FILE A CLAIM?

You should look to start the process of filing a claim as soon as you recognize you're injured and realize the injury is not your fault. In Georgia, the statute of limitations is two years and begins on the date the incident that caused your injury occurred.

Let’s Divide and Conquer:
I’ll focus on your case. You focus on your recovery.

Whether you're in Macon, Atlanta, Savannah, or Kennesaw, I'm here to help. With personal injury cases, time does play a factor in whether or not you'll be able to seek compensation. Because of this, don't hesitate to schedule a consultation with me today. My consultations are free of charge, so you really have nothing to lose. Together, we'll be able to take a look at your case and come up with a game plan that works best for your circumstance.

I HAVE THE STRENGTHS YOU WANT FROM AN ATTORNEY

Hiring a lawyer isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. I know how important it is to get someone in your corner that you can trust and depend on. That being said, I believe I have key strengths that set me apart from the pack that would prove to play in your favor when you decide to work with me.

INSURANCE COMPANIES DON'T SCARE ME

I'm driven by the daily battle against insurance companies that are doing wrong by their clients by allowing unsafe practices on our roadways. In all honesty, they don't care about you. They care about their bottom line. The good news is that I know how to stand up to their bullying and fear tactics so you don't feel pressured into settling for less than anything fair.

I DON'T GET PAID UNLESS WE WIN. 

I'm here to help ease your stress, not add to it. That's why you won't be charged or expected to pay anything until I deliver optimal results. Contact me today.
