Content is provided by the firm.
Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C. specializes in general civil litigation, personal injury, real estate, business, and trust and estate administration.

While we have offices in Atlanta, Athens, Lake Oconee, and Birmingham, AL; our practices are not limited to a "local practice." We take cases across Georgia and the U.S., with a varied business and litigation clientele, both plaintiff and defense.

Litigators in the firm do extensive work in the areas of plaintiffs' medical malpractice and products liability, employment discrimination, constitutional law, labor law, civil rights litigation, the representation of plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury and commercial litigation, and the representation of employers in workers compensation litigation. The firm has a strong commitment to continuing legal education for all its members in order to keep in touch with the evolving law. Also, members of the firm are frequent speakers at legal institutes and seminars.

The firm's fundamental purpose is to provide excellent and efficient service to its clients. BBGA is committed to maximizing efficiency through the use of the latest technology, enabling its lawyers to communicate with clients as well as with each other. Each client is paired with a particular partner of the firm who assumes special responsibility for coordinating the work for that client. Within the firm, however, each client is regarded as a client of the whole firm and not as a client of a specific attorney. Work is allocated on the basis of the expertise and experience required, subject to client preferences. The firm believes that because of its commitment to this concept, each client will receive the best legal services available from the entire staff. The firm's size and structure allow the attorneys to handle complex matters and provide personal attention to each client.
