Kathy McArthur is a personal injury attorney who has served the greater Macon, Georgia, community for more than three decades. During that time, Kathy has dedicated her legal practice to ensuring injury victims, no matter their backgrounds or ability to pay an attorney, have a voice in the courtroom. Kathy is board certified in civil trial advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and is also a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Kathy and her legal team have secured over $250 million in recoveries for her clients over the years. She focuses her practice on truck wrecks, automobile wrecks, and medical malpractice.

Personal injury lawyers in Georgia typically charge the same rate for attorneys fees across the board. Because of this, a new attorney with little to no experience in court will cost the same as Kathy. She encourages potential clients to review any lawyer's history of verdicts and settlements, as well as past client testimonials, before hiring an attorney. Kathy is a fighter who prides herself on fully investigating every case and preparing for trial in every situation. This preparation then lets the defendants know she's serious about proving the case in court if a full and fair settlement offer is not made. When the cases go to trial, her record-breaking verdicts are a testament to her litigation skills.

It costs potential clients nothing to contact one of the attorneys at the McArthur Law Firm and there is no obligation to hire. Call now for your free consultation and let Kathy fight for you!
