Herbert Chestnut & Associates, Senior & Managing Partner 1995-present.
At Herbert Chestnut & Associates, we have a combined 78 years of experience in helping clients successfully navigate through the complex legal process. We primarily assist injured workers from the State of Georgia, longshoremen, checkers, and deck and dockworkers at ports nationwide, and defense contractors injured overseas and in war zones worldwide. We also represent injured seamen with claims for Maintenence & Cure and Jones Act relief. We have a network of associated law firms which allows the firm to evaluate serious personal injuries, medical malpractice involving serious injury or death, personal injury claims involving motorcyclists, and those injured by tractor-trailers.
Our practice is not limited to the State of Georgia. As one of the few firms that handle cases involving all federal compensation programs, we are allowed to take claims arising from the ports of California to the battlefields of Iraq or Afghanistan under the Defense Base Act and War Hazards Act.
The firm takes great pride in offering one on one assistance, with each client having the opportunity to communicate openly and as often as is necessary for us to fully understand the intricacies of the client's claim. Only then can we effectively represent a client in any proceeding, by knowing the client, the facts, and the law.
