The Benefits of Hiring a Small Law Firm

Most Georgia law firms specialize in some sort of legal representation. Personal injury representation is a competitive field of legal representation, but for good reason. The biggest problem victims of metro-Atlanta auto accidents, dog bites, auto defects, and slip and falls have is the saturation of marketing from large law firms on bill boards, television commercials, and other high-traffic areas. To the everyday consumer, these seem like appropriate methods of finding your personal injury attorney. The attorneys at Jones & Swanson want all personal injury victims to understand their options and the benefits of those choices. The first decision a potential personal injury claimant should make is whether they want to work with a large, corporate personal injury firm or a smaller, more personal firm. Although one may be inclined to hire the over-sized, over-priced firm they saw advertised on television or billboards, an intelligent shopper should first consider the advantages of working with a smaller firm. These advantages include:

  • Often willing to take smaller cases when larger firms may not.
  • Client relationships are much more close and personal. One-on-one relationships with attorneys and office staff are common in small firms like Jones & Swanson. This ultimately means that the details of cases are understood better and clients have the comfort of knowing that their cases will not be handed off to another attorney within the firm.
  • Attorneys within the firm sharing knowledge with one another can improve firm effectiveness because clients not only receive one attorney's experience, but an entire office's worth.
  • Easier access to attorneys because they are available via telephone, email, website contact forms, and other methods much more often than attorneys are larger firms.
  • Attorneys have a true passion for the quality of their work.
  • Flexibility and ability to provide service that is tailored to each client's needs.
  • Informal, relaxed atmosphere.
  • Reasonable fee structures and costs: Small law firms with two to ten attorneys incur a much lower overhead than larger firms, enabling them to charge much less for the same work. At Jones & Swanson, our attorneys work on a contingency basis, instead of an hourly rate or flat fee like larger firms charge. This means our fees are a percentage of our clients' gross recovery from a settlement or jury verdict. If our clients do not receive financial compensation, we receive no fees.

Jones & Swanson employs two experienced personal injury lawyers: Andrew W. Jones and M. Chase Swanson. In addition to these full-time attorneys, the firm enlists the aid of three paralegals and three other office staff members. Past clients of our Marietta injury firm know that we treat each and every potential client with the highest care and attention possible. Our attorneys, paralegals, and office staff are available at nearly all times via email, online contact forms, or telephone. We put forth our best effort on each and every case. We guarantee that our personal touches will leave every client confident and satisfied with their legal representation, all for a fraction of the price charged by large law firms.
