Our history of fighting for people like you dates back decades. H. Lehman Franklin, Jr., opened his law firm in the Bank of Statesboro building (East Main Street, Statesboro, Georgia) in November 1968. In 1973, the firm moved to its present location at 127 North Main Street.
Over the years, the firm has served the citizens of Statesboro, Bulloch County, Brooklet, Sylvania, Savannah, and other areas of the state. Our concentrations are in bankruptcy, personal injury, wrongful death, DUI defense, nursing home neglect, and vehicle accidents.
An Expanding Firm
Kimberly S. Ward joined the firm in 2003 and has been a dedicated and effective participant in all areas of the firm’s practice. During recent years, the firm has reorganized and/or eliminated millions of dollars in consumer debt, providing relief and a new start for overly indebted and stressed-out consumers.
Our team also works for business owners in need of relief. The firm has reorganized and/or eliminated millions of dollars in debt for business debtors and farming operations, enabling these businesses to continue to operate and restructure their debt. Careful debt restructuring allows these businesses to perform as viable economic enterprises in their communities.
Settling Cases to Your Satisfaction
Let’s face it: Bad things can often happen to good people. Our firm takes a great deal of pride in representing individuals who have been injured or overburdened through no fault of their own. We settle the majority of our cases to the satisfaction of clients, while taking the remainder of our cases through litigation to final verdicts.
Many of the firm’s new cases are “repeat” clients or referrals from other satisfied clients. Defendants in these cases have included trucking companies, hospitals, nursing homes, as well as ordinary drivers of all ages and walks of life. The firm’s attorneys are experienced in other areas of civil litigation as well, such as contract disputes and litigation with credit card companies.
