Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Darl Champion is a dedicated trial lawyer who is passionate about fighting for his clients to ensure that they are fully compensated when they are harmed by someone else’s negligence. His philosophy is to provide client-centered representation that is aggressive and thorough so that the client can get the best possible result. Because Darl is a firm believer that good communication between the lawyer and the client is essential to obtaining the best possible result, he makes it a priority to be accessible to his clients.

The results Darl has obtained for his clients demonstrate that he is willing to work tirelessly to achieve justice on their behalf. In just the last few years alone, he has helped obtain over $60 Million in recoveries for his clients in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia – including a $10.2 Million settlement in 2020. In recognition of his success, the National Trial Lawyers organization has consistently selected Darl as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in Georgia, and as a Top 40 Under 40.  In addition, in each of the last ten years, Georgia Super Lawyers has recognized him as a Rising Star, an honor given to the top 2.5% of Georgia lawyers under age 40 or those in practice for ten years or less.

Originally from North Carolina, Darl graduated summa cum laude from Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. He then attended Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law in Macon, Georgia. After obtaining his law degree magna cum laude, he was honored to serve in a highly coveted federal judicial clerkship with the Honorable Hugh Lawson in the Middle District of Georgia.

Darl presently lives in Smyrna with his wife Julia and their two children, Elizabeth and Daniel. When he’s not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, reading, traveling, watching sports, and volunteering in the community.
