Work Directly with Your Attorney

Many people who need to hire an attorney assume they should go with the biggest law firm, but an unfortunate reality of working with big firms is that they rarely have time to give you the personalized attention you and your case deserve. Many clients never even meet their attorney and instead are forced to communicate with a case manager.

You won’t find this at Berelc Law Firm. As a smaller firm, we’re able to choose our cases and work directly with our clients. We strive to be as accessible as possible so our clients can get their questions answered and their concerns addressed throughout their case. What you’re going through is personal; we can provide you with personalized solutions.

Call our Lavonia lawyers today at (706) 914-1915 to get started on your case. Our team is happy to walk you through your case and help you understand what options you have.

Our Practice Areas

With more than a decade of experience as a firm, we’ve worked with countless clients and handled a wide range of legal cases. Through a free consultation, it costs nothing to meet with us one-on-one and learn more about how we can help you.

  • Estate Planning: Many people don’t know that estate planning involves much more than drafting a last will and testament. Accidents can happen at any time, rendering you incapacitated and unable to make your own decisions. If that ever happens, it’s beneficial for you to have an updated Power of Attorney in place to handle your affairs. We’re happy to help you develop a comprehensive estate plan to ensure that no detail is missed and that your family’s future is secure.

  • Personal Injury: Accidents happen all the time, but if your injuries were caused by someone’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated. The more serious the injury, the more expensive your medical bills will be. Having to lose wages from taking time off from work also doesn’t help when you have financial burdens. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate your accident to determine who is at fault for damages. Through our unwavering support, our lawyers have been able to recover damages including medical expenses, lost wages and future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and property damage. Additionally, we can help families who have lost loved ones in accidents so they can be compensated for burial and funeral expenses, lost income, loss of companionship, and more.
  • Workers’ Compensation: Our law firm understands Georgia’s workers’ compensation system and can help you file a claim if you’ve been injured in a workplace accident. Though it may seem obvious to you that you’re entitled to benefits after suffering work-related injuries, many workers have their rights denied by insurance adjusters. We can protect you and your claim and get you optimal results, even if your claim was denied the first time around.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why hire a personal injury attorney?

    Most people don’t know what insurance companies are really like until they try to get fairly compensated after an accident or injury. Insurance company adjusters make every attempt to assure injured individuals that they have their best interests at heart; however, insurance companies and these adjusters are only concerned with increasing their shareholders’ profits by saving every penny they can save. They will do everything in their power to avoid paying you what you deserve. We know how to deal with insurance companies. We also know how to value cases to ensure you are fairly compensated.

  • How long do I have to file a claim?

    A statute of limitations has been defined as “the action of the state in determining that after a lapse of a specified time, a claim shall not be enforceable in a judicial proceeding.” For injuries to the person, the action must be commenced within two years after the right of action accrues. This means that after a car accident or PI claim that you have two years from the date of the accident to pursue a lawsuit. It is usually best to hire an attorney early in the process to allow them to investigate and that way you shouldn’t run into a statute of limitations problem.
