A Small Firm with a Big Mission

Growing up, there were two things that I absolutely loved to do: read books and help people. Initially, these interests made me think that one day I would become a doctor. As time went on, though, I realized that my true calling was the practice of law. Now, as I look back at the countless families I’ve helped throughout Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia over the past decade — and the many more I plan to help in the future — I’ve never been happier with my decision to become an attorney.

After spending the early years of my career working at a large law firm, it seemed clear to me that a volume-based practice isn’t the right way to go. You see, when a law firm is focused solely on how many clients they can get, the actual quality of service they offer tends to steadily decrease over time. Attorneys become “too busy” to meet with their clients one-on-one, which typically leaves those clients feeling forgotten and undervalued.

My practice aims to do the exact opposite. By keeping the firm small and our caseload light, we are able to give our clients — and, by extension, their legal concerns — the individual attention they deserve. When you work with us, you’re never left to wonder what’s happening with your case or who you should call if you have questions.

When you ask me for legal guidance, it’s me who’s going to personally handle your case from start to finish.- Forrest Jackson

Finding Our Niche in Social Security Disability & Injury-Related Cases

Although facing any kind of legal roadblock is frustrating at best, I discovered early in my career that those involving injuries and disabilities are among the most stressful. After all, you expect the legal system to take care of you when you get hurt or have to live with a disability. And yet, you have to fight your way through layers of paperwork and bureaucracy just to get the insurance company to consider covering your expenses. If, after that, your claim is denied or you’re offered less than you deserve — well, that just adds insult to injury.

It’s because of this seemingly insurmountable amount of stress that I chose to focus my practice on disability claims, car accidents and injuries, nursing home abuse and neglect, and other cases that pertain to personal injuries. For you, these claims are a huge inconvenience and an unwelcome headache. For me, they’re just another day on the job. I know from years of experience exactly how to take your case and turn it into a workable, realistic solution. Even better, I’m happy to explain every step so that you’re always in the loop and able to make informed decisions regarding your case.

Serving Tennessee, Alabama, & Georgia

You’ll find my main office in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but I regularly work with clients throughout northern Alabama and Georgia, as well. Even if you live outside of my Alabama office locations (Decatur, Gadsden, and Vestavia Hills), I strongly encourage you to give me a call with any questions about a disability, injury, or elder law-related claim. It would be my pleasure to ease your legal burden in any way I can.
