Jeffrey Scott Gilbert is proud to have a small practice. He offers personalized attention to each one of his clients, a feat that many firms can't say they do. Why does a small practice make a big difference in your case? A Georgia personal injury attorney like Jeff Gilbert takes the time to research and investigate all areas of your case. He finds out the truth and stands guard for you against the twisting of facts and the law against you. Sure, Jeff listens to your story, interviews witnesses, and researches the law, but that is not enough for Jeff and it shouldn't be enough for you!!! One of Jeff's favorite sayings is that “there is no traffic in the extra mile.” He recognizes that in the law, as well as in life there are all too many 76%ers. Lawyers that are unwilling to go the extra mile to counter an unfavorable medical report or to think of and develop an argument. Not too long ago, Jeff was contacted to assist another lawyer on a case as a result of being seen on the lecture circuit. The lawyer had demanded $160,000.00 on a case. Jeff immediately recognized that the case was undervalued. He faced the dilemma of what to do about the demand. After all once made, it is nearly impossible to go backward on a demand. The lawyer's mistake was to not value the potential for the case to become catastrophic. With credit to the lawyer for falling on the sword so to speak, Jeff came up with the idea of having the client friendly “fire” the lawyer and hiring Jeff who could then argue “new sheriff in town”. But recognizing that it was not credible to simply argue the potential, Jeff immediately went about countering unfavorable medicals and developing a favorable basis for catastrophic designation. Result, this case settled for $215,000.000. The lawyer asked Jeff, “how do you do that” and Jeff said it comes down to credibility and I can teach you how to do that, to be a better lawyer and get maximum value. The lawyer's response after realizing there was no magic pill, “I don't want to learn, I just want to keep doing it my way”. There is no substitute for credibility with Judges, Defense lawyers, and Insurance companies. Jeff has worked for 30 years to develop a reputation for not giving in, for being willing to work to support his positions, and for walking away from even million dollar offers if it is not in the clients' best interest to do accept the same. A leading Georgia workers' compensation attorney, Gilbert has been known to be a “bulldog,” fighting for the maximum amount in compensation and not backing down until you get what you are entitled to receive by the law.

He was trying up to ten jury trials a year in both state and federal courts, allowing him to see firsthand how insurance companies work. After five years of practice working for insurance companies, he decided to dedicate his time to representing the victims of Georgia workers' compensation claims, car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other civil cases.
