Elliott Blackburn serves as local counsel in complex business and civil litigation cases.

Additionally we can advise out of state clients and counsel on Georgia law and the Georgia Civil Practice act. We can advise in all areas of the case, particularly how the laws of Georgia and the rules of the local circuit impact the case for clients and counsel who may be unfamiliar with Georgia laws, rules, and local practices. By serving as local counsel we can give out of state clients and counsel confidence that their case is being handled correctly every step of the way.
