Georgia Trial Practice With an Emphasis on Client Service

At the Athens law firm of Scott, Wells & McElwee, P.C., our attorneys combine decades of trial experience with a deep commitment to the welfare of our clients. We follow an older legal tradition, one that demanded a spirit of public service and a duty to help others to go along with the privilege of practicing law.

Our lawyers combine sharp trial skills with a focus on our clients’ welfare

To learn how our focus on the broader interests of our clients can benefit you in a personal injury claim or provide for your criminal defensecontact our office for a free consultation. Our partners average 30 years of trial experience each, and bring formidable skills to bear on complex issues such as serious automobile collisions, collisions involving pedestrians or bicycles, commercial trucking accident litigation, or wrongful death.

At the same time, we devote a great deal of personal attention to every client we serve. Our example was set by our late founder, Guy B. Scott, who established a reputation as a general practitioner who could help practically anybody with virtually any problem. He offered his versatility, enthusiasm, generosity and skill to people of all races, religions, ages and income levels at a time when most Georgia professionals did not.

We use our trial skills to achieve successful outcomes for our clients

Today, our attorneys aren’t quite as wide ranging in our practice as Guy B. was, but our ability to get results in court still lets us cover a lot of ground. We handle motor vehicle accidents, criminal defense, workers’ compensation, commercial litigation, nursing home negligence and many other situations that could lead to a trial. Our reputation for sound trial strategies and skillful handling of evidence often provides leverage for achieving settlements without the need to go to court.

We’re just as well known in northeast Georgia for our ability to help our clients and their families with problems that aren’t directly related to the legal issues: medical treatment, problems with creditors and support services that might be necessary to help deal with the stress of a difficult situation.
