Founding partner, Joseph Spires is a Georgia native with over two decades of legal experience. He specializes in Worker's Compensation, Bankruptcy and Personal Injury. From 2002-2008 Joseph was appointed by the Georgia Attorney General to represent the interest of the State of Georgia as a Special Assistant Attorney General in the area of Workers' Compensation. He has experience litigating Plaintiff's cases as well as defending cases in Workers' Compensation hearings which gives him the experience to foresee the Employer's defense to a claim and to assist an injured employee with obtaining the benefits he or she is entitled.

Joe has filed hundreds of bankruptcy petitions and prides himself on working with clients to make the bankruptcy process be as smooth and dignified as possible. His father was a mill worker with Graniteville Company for over 40 years and he understands that individuals can work hard, but still be in financial crisis.
