Details

Alfred L. Evans, III, who has almost 22 years of litigation and trial experience, primarily handles personal injury cases involving car wrecks, truck wrecks, commercial motor vehicle collisions, and wrongful death cases. He also handles animal bite cases, and cases involving drunk/drugged drivers.  Licensed to practice before all Georgia state courts, Alfred started his legal career at a boutique Buckhead law firm where he handled insurance matters that often involved defending trucking companies, truck drivers and insurance carriers across the State of Georgia.  In this setting, almost every case Alfred handled was in the litigation/trial phase.

An Atlanta native, Alfred attended Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia as an undergraduate, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree with honors in political science in 1996. While there, he held membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Chi Phi. Alfred then returned home to attend the University of Georgia School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2000. After becoming an equity partner in the firm that he worked for after law school, Alfred opened his own firm in 2013. Alfred is an active member of the legal community and is a part of the Lawyers Club of Atlanta, the Atlanta Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (Champion Member), the American Association for Justice ("AAJ"), the National Trial Lawyers,  ("NTL") and the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America ("APITLA"). 

Alfred now focuses his time on representing victims in personal injury claims and lawsuits.  His unusually lengthy experience in insurance defense allows him to see both sides of the case and to apply this inside knowledge for the direct benefit of his clients. Alfred's familiarity with complex federal trucking regulations provides a significant advantage in the prosecution of often serious personal injury claims against negligent truck drivers and trucking companies. In fact, Alfred is brought into numerous trucking and commercial vehicle cases by other injury attorneys based upon his intimate knowledge of the commercial motor vehicle industry and complex state and federal regulations governing that industry.  In the first four years of his practice as a personal injury attorney, Alfred was instrumental in the recovery of approximately Nine Million Dollars on behalf of trucking/commercial motor vehicle clients alone.  Alfred has been recognized by his fellow professionals for his ethics and legal ability as shown by his receipt of a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through AVVO.  Alfred was selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2012 and 2013.  Subsequently, Alfred was selected as a Super Lawyer in 2015 and 2016, and a Top 100 Super Lawyer in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
