What to consider in choosing an attorney
“The most important considerations in choosing an attorney to represent you in cases of personal injury or wrongful death are experience, competence, success record, reputation (in the legal and insurance communities), and a passion for handling the case.
Why the Winston Briggs Law Firm?
The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm can give you the maximum compensation for your claim. Winston Briggs and the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm are the right choice to handle your personal injury case. Winston Briggs and his litigation team will work with you on your case and personally be available virtually anytime to discuss your case with you.
Mr. Briggs has worked as a defense lawyer for insurance companies and their drivers, so he knows the defense maneuvers and tactics insurance companies and their attorneys use to attempt to resolve cases for less than their full value. Mr. Briggs has tried more than 200 cases and is known and respected as a lawyer who is always willing to try a case. That results in higher settlement offers before trial because opposing lawyers and insurance companies respect the fact that Mr. Briggs will try the case if they do not agree to pay the full value of the case. Most importantly, if full value is not offered without trial and the case must be decided by the jury, Mr. Briggs has the experience and a proven success record essential to getting you the most you can get (and all you deserve) at trial.
A note from Attorney W. Winston Briggs
I have tried and won far more jury trials than most of my peers. During my career, I have tried more than 200 jury trials. I have a reputation for not backing away from trial like many attorneys. Insurance companies, lawyers, and judges know that. They know that I am willing to take the case to trial if the case is not resolved for its full value before trial. This results in better outcomes for my clients. When insurance companies and their lawyers believe that a lawyer does not want to try the case, they will attempt to resolve the case for less than its full worth. Many so-called “trial lawyers” are actually reluctant to try cases in front of juries or have limited trial experience. That is where passion, experience, and reputation are important. It is well known in the insurance industry that, if no reasonable offer is made in my client’s case before trial, I will do whatever it takes to get my client what they deserve, including taking the case to trial. That generally results in larger offers to my clients before trial. However, if the settlement offer is less than reasonable and we must go to trial, I have the experience and passion to successfully try the case.”

Winston and his team were the best I’ve ever dealt with. Honestly, I’ve hired many law firms in the past 10 years and no other law firm made me feel as important as Winston Briggs. To them I wasn’t just another case, I was family and for that I’m forever grateful. They got me a settlement that I deserved and they fought tooth and nails to make sure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Nicole, kept me updated with my case’s progress and anytime I had a question she was on it! I felt like I was the only client because of how personalized they made it feel. Best of the best hands down. Thank you once again for everything you did for my family and I!
After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney because he seemed to have the best grasp of my situation and because, of the attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim of my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
The case required Mr. Briggs to make numerous trips to Virginia to take on the responsible parties on their home turf. Although it required significant effort, at the end of the day, Mr. Briggs successfully forced the responsible companies to accept responsibility for my husband’s death and to pay a settlement that will take care of my son and me over the course of our lives. The event was tragic but I am very pleased that I hired Winston to represent me and my son in the case.”
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest. Without having to go through a lawsuit, Mr. Briggs convinced the hotel’s insurance company to pay more than six times the amount they had offered me to settle the claim before I hired Mr. Briggs. I hope I never need his services again but, if I do, I wouldn’t think of hiring any other attorney to represent me.
I am extremely pleased I hired The Briggs Law Firm and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, and particularly, one who has been injured in a bicycle accident. Once the insurance carriers learned Mr. Briggs was my lawyer, they accepted responsibility for the accident and compensated me for my injuries.
To those injured; I’m writing to show everyone out there that Mr.Winston Briggs is here to help you. As he listened to my story I realized that he sincerely cared and knew that, even though the injury occurred, he was able to see forward and find ways to help. Winston through the years has demonstrated that he is on the cutting edge of injury recovery. He makes a painful process turn into a more profitable and emotional reward...

To him I am indebted for his enthusiastic, encouragement and support he and his staff offered throughout the handling of my case. Unlike any other law firm, they continue to keep me in the loop on how my case progressed. I highly recommend Winston Briggs Law Firm to anyone looking for an attorney in Atlanta who cares and have integrity in his work getting the case settled, without a doubt, he’s the Best!
