The metro Atlanta area is a fast-paced environment, and it can be difficult to find Atlanta injury lawyers who can provide the level of personal service that your case deserves. At Butler Law Firm, our most important priority is you. Ensuring that you achieve the best result possible is what drives our decisions. We accomplish this by both providing an unmatched level of personal service and by preparing every case to present to a jury. Many of our cases ultimately settle before we ever walk into a courtroom. However, the reason these cases often settle is because insurance companies know we are ready. Top Atlanta injury lawyers prepare cases for trial, not settlement. Insurance companies know the better injury lawyers from the lawyers who just settle. And when that happens, i.e. when the insurance companies see our names on the documents, it yields better outcomes for the men, women, children and families we represent. The cases that we don’t settle, we win in courts.

In Atlanta, the unfortunate truth is that serious injuries happen.  The city’s heavy traffic means that we see many car accidents, and the intersection of multiple major interstates in Atlanta means that every year, we will hear about tractor-trailer accidents in and around the metro area.  The city’s growing population also means that residents of Fulton, DeKalb, and Cobb County may be the victims of crime in Atlanta’s many apartment complexes, restaurants, or other commercial establishments. As 5 star rated Atlanta injury lawyers, we help the victims of these misfortunes.

You Only Have One Chance for Justice

With a devastating injury, you only get one chance to seek justice for your loss. Having the right personal injury attorney can make the difference between winning and losing your case. You want a law firm that isn’t all talk—you want a firm that has handled and won other cases just like yours. No two cases are identical because no two humans are identical. But, experience, hard work, and practice does make a real difference. And we have that. Our Atlanta injury lawyers understand that you only have once chance; we promise we will do everything we can to make that one chance count. For example, in 2015 our firm won a jury verdict of $150,000,000 ($150 million dollars) for the wrongful death of a young boy.
