Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Attorneys hampion Firm, P.C.


MARCH 2019

W ho doesn’t love a good underdog story? From sports movies like “Rocky” to seeing the outmatched rebels defeating the evil Empire in “Star Wars” for the hundredth time, there’s something inspiring about watching someone overcome impossible odds. I’ve always loved underdog stories, but as I got older, I realized that the underdogs rarely come out on top in real life. The good guys don’t always win when they’re facing down against big corporations with more money and resources. I became a lawyer because I wanted to help the underdogs and make their lives better. THE ROAD TO PERSONAL INJURY LAW THERE FOR THE UNDERDOG

I wanted to be the best personal injury lawyer possible. In addition to learning all I could while clerking, I knew the best way to represent my clients would be to know how the other side thinks. After my clerkship, I took a job at a defense firm that represented insurance companies and governmental entities. Within two days, I recognized that line of work was not for me.

At that firm, I felt like I was going against what I was being naturally called to do.

My plan was to get three years of experience, but I didn’t know if I would last 12 months! Fortunately, six months after starting at that firm, I was offered an amazing opportunity to work with an experienced personal injury law firm in Atlanta. This was a welcome change. From my first day on the job, I knew this was who I am and what I was meant to do.

Working at that personal injury firm proved to be the best decision I made. For four years, I learned about a variety of cases, gained a lot of experience, and was able to help a lot of


people. But I knew that wasn’t the end of my journey. I’m the kind of person who is driven by an entrepreneurial spirit. I knew that on the horizon, I would open my own firm where I could do things my way. I believe that when someone hires a law firm, they deserve an attorney who is going to treat their case like it’s the most important case of their life — because, for our clients, their case usually is the most important case of their life. This is what The Champion Firm is built on. We want to get more than a “good result” for our clients. We want to make sure our clients have an opportunity to get better in every sense of the word, even if that means we have to fight longer and harder than other firms do.

Everyone has something they’re naturally inclined to do. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve felt a need to help people. If there’s some way I can help someone who’s struggling, I have to be there for them. Being a lawyer puts me in a position where I am able to help those who can’t help themselves. There are many areas of law I could practice, but given my natural inclination for helping people, personal injury was the only place I could be. I spent the first two years after law school clerking for a federal court judge. This was one of the best experiences of my life. I got to watch a lot of trials and hearings, review briefs and motions from veteran attorneys, and draft opinions for the judge. I learned a lot about how the court works and how juries view things. This great experience helped prepare me for the demands of representing personal injury clients.

If you really want to help the underdogs, you have to be willing to go the distance.
