Dan Landers began practicing law in south Georgia in 1981 in a litigation practice. Mr. Landers and another lawyer founded a defense litigation firm which represented insurance companies and their insureds, large corporations and governmental entities and agencies. This included the defense of trucking companies, manufacturers, hospitals and doctors, and other similar entities. Through many years of trying cases for these clients and negotiating on their behalf, Mr. Landers gained insight into the priorities, strategies and tactics of the defense of civil litigation. “Jumping the fence,” those insights have now been applied to advance the causes of individuals, rather than insurance companies and large corporations.
In 1993 Mr. Landers left the firm he helped start in order to represent “ordinary folks” and has found it to be much more satisfying for the past 15 years. Mr. Landers once represented insurers such as State Farm, Farm Bureau, Aetna, Travelers, AIG, Auto Owners and many others. Now he represents people who have claims against these companies for injuries or damages caused by carelessness or, in some cases, fraud or intentional wrong.
Likewise, in the area of bankruptcy law, Mr. Landers formerly represented lenders such as GMAC, Chrysler Credit Corp. and NationsBank in both consumer bankruptcies and in commercial lending disputes. Now Mr. Landers is an advocate for those people and families who find themselves unable to pay all their bills, often through unforeseen job loss or disability, and need to seek relief and protection through the bankruptcy laws and courts.
If you’ve read this far, you’re not just looking for an entertaining web site. The law firms who spend the most on advertising sometimes don’t even spend their time representing clients; they “farm out” the work to other lawyers and firms and just sit back and collect a share of the fees. If you want to be a file number among thousands of others with a lawyer who wouldn’t even recognize you if he saw you, then our firm is not for you.
We are small and selective in whom we represent. We do not strive for ever-increasing volume in the number of cases we handle. We strive for excellence and professionalism. We utilize technology including the best electronic database research tools; expensive but worth it. We maintain relationships with other professionals and retain nurses, engineers, accountants or other consultants where needed to assess our clients’ case or testify on their behalf. We don’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on websites, phone books or T.V. ads. We spend time with our clients and working on their cases.
