“Recovering from injuries can be physically, emotionally, and financially challenging. I work with you each step along the path of recovery, giving you the time and attention you deserve to get you back on your feet and bring closure to the uncertainty of dealing with an injury claim.”


Extremely Knowledgeable and Kept me at ease!

John knows his Law!! Every time I had a question (and still have questions) or I wasn't sure what was going on he was right there to let me know what was going on and what the law was about Workman's compensation. He guided me to a fair settlement. He is definitely there to let you know what needs to be done and what Doctors to see (or not to see). He will definitely do his best to help you out when you need it the most! I can say without a doubt I would recommend John to anyone! His is definitely one of the Good Guys!!.

Very attentive and thorough!

Mr. Mays kept me updated throughout my case. He made sure I understood everything that was going on and spent ample time with me in person, on the phone and through email. I highly recommend him. He got me results when no other firm would take my case.

You know you have someone on your side.

I’ve hired several attorneys in my life. John Mays came recommended by a prominent attorney. Once I hired John, I was very impressed at John’s willingness to keep me informed throughout the process at all times…then you know you have someone on YOUR SIDE looking out for your best interests. One should always consider hiring a professional attorney because they know the law which we often do not as the general public. I would have never gotten all this accomplished without his assistance.

The best attorney I have ever had!

I was fighting a felony trial case and Mr. John Mays did a GREAT job by strategically making the right moves as my legal aid as well as made it comfortable for me. He was very honest and determined to prove to the state of Ga that I wasn't the assailant. Mr. Mays also was very persistent on getting the job done. He updated me before I could reach out to him, he was real good at the start of trail day in which my case was dismissed! Anything good you can think of about a attorney this is the guy you want! He helped save my life, I could have been facing 20+ years. Thanks Mr. Mays!! (Criminal Defense Case) A+
