Insurance Settlements and Taxes

If you have an insurance settlement coming your way, you may be wondering what the tax ramifications might be. While it is true that most forms of income are taxable under state and federal law, insurance settlements are a little different.

How to Protect Your Interests When Working With Insurance Companies

Working with an insurance company on a claim can try your patience. Even if your claim is legitimate and your coverage is applicable, the insurance company may delay or even deny your claim for any number of reasons.

Is Swerving Probable Cause for a DUI Stop?

The Fourth Amendment protects us from unreasonable search and seizure by the government. This right covers police pullovers. This means an officer needs a legal reason, called probable cause, to pull you over.

Why Are Policy Limits Important?

In many personal injury cases, there may be one or more insurance policies that will compensate for the injured person's losses. These losses can include economic losses, such as medical bills, non-economic losses, also called pain and suffering, and your legal fees, up to the policy limits.

How Can I Get My License Back After a DUI?

Having your license suspended is just one of the many ramifications of getting a DUI in Georgia. It also happens to be one of the most disruptive, especially if you depend on your car to get to your place of employment.

The Other Party Claims They Have No Money; Can I Still File a Claim?

It is not uncommon for people to claim they have no money and no assets to deter the injured person from filing a claim against them. If you have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, you should consider all your options before you forgo taking legal action against the liable person.

How Can I Negotiate a Higher Settlement Amount?

If you are involved in a personal injury claim and have been offered a settlement amount, you may be wondering if you are obligated to accept their first offer. The first offer the insurance company tenders is typically just a starting point.

How to Get a Supportive Witness Statement

In the realm of personal injury claims, the witness statement can have a very important role. A third-party statement attesting to what happened can go a long way toward supporting your claim. Because witness statements are important pieces of evidence, you should be careful and thoughtful when obtaining one.

How Can I Get Custody Rights?

When a child's parents divorce or separate, Georgia courts grant custody rights to one or both parents. There are two types of custody in Georgia: physical and legal. Physical custody rights grant the parent residential time with their child.

What Does Equitable Distribution Mean?

One of the most contentious issues in many divorces today is the division of marital property. Each state follows a different legal principle that governs the division of property during a divorce. Georgia recognizes the principle of equitable distribution.

David O'Reilly

My family and I moved to Roswell from Chicago over ten years ago. At that time, we were referred to Tom to assist us with some of our legal needs. Since then he has become a trusted friend we consider to be our family attorney. The comfort in being able to speak candidly with him and know that he understands our concerns is invaluable. Tom is a man of integrity, vast experience (more than 25 years), who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, though, and diligent. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of sound legal counsel.

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need. You couldn’t ask for a better person to be fighting for you.
