Practice Pointers for a Georgia Personal Injury Practice

Sign up to receive daily tips for practicing attorneys

With more than 100 years of combined experience practicing as personal injury attorneys, the lawyers at Fried Goldberg LLC have combined our knowledge into a series of practice pointers. We include references to Georgia statutes and case law in order to provide insights and helpful hints for less experienced attorneys.

These practice pointers will cover a different topic each week, and a different practice pointer will be emailed to registrants every business day. We hope these daily practice pointers will help you in your practice to recognize the questions you should be asking yourself in each case and provide you the answers you need as a personal injury attorney.

The practice pointers will be emailed each morning beginning on January 15, 2024. You must certify that you solely represent plaintiffs in order to receive the emails. You can sign up by filling out the form:
