Self-Defense Liability

It is often said that “there is a lawyer [or attorney, or lawsuit] attached to every bullet.”  In today’s litigious society, that is probably pretty accurate. Although I am primarily a business attorney, I spend a fair amount of time as a firearms instructor for a civilian training company and at a local law enforcement […]

Jonathan Granberry

Jonathan Granberry was a graphic artist (he would say graphic communicator) extraordinaire.  In marked contrast to the plethora of amateur individuals and businesses which purport to design logos and marketing materials, John knew that an effective logo had to communicate the core values and expertise of the business it represents.  He took the time to […]

What people say about us

I am a small business owner in Atlanta.  I contracted with a company in Alabama that went completely south. Although in my mind I felt I had a very strong case, I was hesitant to get involved legally (especially in another state) until a consultation with Scott. Scott took control of the situation from the start, all the while explaining everything to me as the proceedings progressed. His guidance and expertise made me feel as comfortable and confident as possible.  Additionally, his fees are more than reasonable, and doesn’t charge for every little thing. The end result, I was a very satisfied client and would highly recommend him.

Scott did a great job helping my staff and I work through a difficult situation. It was refreshing how his professionalism, knowledge, experience and compassion all lined up to provide us with exactly what was needed. Thank you Scott!
Sincerely,
Birmingham Fitness LLC

I want to thank you for keeping me at ease. You told me the first time that we talked that you would let me know when it was time to worry. I trusted you and took you at your word. Fortunately you never once told me to worry. I handed it all over to God the night the police took Dalton away. You entered the picture the next day and all was well.  
 
**I highly recommend, Scott, as a lawyer. He is great with clients and their families. He is very well organized and knows the law.
Pace Whitaker

I am truly grateful for Scott’s representation in my legal matter.  His professionalism, expertise and dedication to my case was outstanding.  If there is ever a need for legal advise or representation again, I am confident Scott Gosnell will be whom I call for legal counsel.
Thanks again for everything, YOU ROCK!
Susan Hughes

Scott has advised me multiple times in regards to legal questions about my company. He is an outstanding, knowledgeable and trustworthy man and regardless of how large or small the problem, his counsel is always well advised with an attention to detail that is impeccable!
