Unlimited Resources Means More Opportunities to Get the Best Results
I really appreciate the office we have here in Savannah. Everyone is always eager and willing to help one another out, just like a little family. But behind this little family is an entire army of the best legal minds and professionals around. We use technology like dedicated listservs, which are email groups set-up for specific departments in the firm. I know if I ever have any sort of question, I can get a response from our firm’s top attorneys in a matter of minutes. I also have unlimited access to the best investigators, medical records experts, paralegals, and more whenever I need them to help propel my client’s case forward.
With that level of support from the very top down, even in satellite offices like Savannah we very much feel a part of the Farah and Farah family. At the end of the day, all of these resources means us attorneys have everything we need to flat out get things done for our clients.
Working With Different Industries Everyday Makes Me a Better Attorney
In my past experience, I was a prosecutor in the State Attorney’s Office. In that role, you’re helping the victims of some of the worst crimes you can think of get justice for what they went through. It’s actually pretty similar to what I do now in worker’s compensation where employees can feel terribly victimized by insurance. I love being in their corner through the whole process and the feeling we share when their case finally reaches a great resolution.
With workers compensation cases, you really have to be a fast learner because you are dealing with people from different fields with different injuries every day. I need to understand my client’s role at their place of employment, as well as how their injuries occurred and how that affects their future in order to get a complete picture of everything they deserve to be made whole.
It could be a nurse who was assaulted at work, a semi-truck driver injured in an accident, or a blue collar worker who cuts his hand while fabricating trailers. The point is, these are all people who were put into situations where they were hurt or victimized and their basic needs are usually pretty similar. They care about paying their rent, about how to get their kids to school, about the surgeries and treatment they’ll need to get back to work. The variety I see day in and day out truly helps me relate and understand what people both want and need to get their lives back on track.
I May Be Based in Savannah, But I Help Injured Workers Across Georgia
A case I’ll never forget was with a young man who was only 21 years old and had his foot crushed while working at his job. He had a pregnant wife at the time and the injury completely took him out of commission. He was scared to death about his future because he didn’t have a college degree and the only experience he had was doing the job he had been doing. Worried about his income and stressing over his foot that was never the same even after surgery, this young man came to our firm where he needed me to secure his livelihood going forward. Through a lot of hard work, we were able to get him a great settlement of more than $100,000 to help him and his family as he transitioned to a new career.
It’s cases like these that make me know I’m where I’m supposed to be and using my talents for something truly good. When I’m not here in the office, I love heading out to gems we have near Savannah like Tybee Island to relax and unwind. If it’s football season, you can bet I’ll be catching all the action with the UGA Bulldogs every time they play.
