Attorney Profile

For more than 30 years, Harold Whiteman, Jr., has advocated for people who have suffered an on-the-job injury. As founder of Hal Whiteman, he knows how to handle all aspects of workers’ compensation cases in the Atlanta area and across the state of Georgia. He counsels clients on the application process and quickly takes action if benefits are denied.

In 1975, Mr. Whiteman received a Bachelor of Arts in American government from the University of Virginia. He then earned a Juris Doctor in 1980 from the Mercer University School of Law.

Before he began representing workers, Mr. Whiteman served as an attorney for insurance companies. This gave him a firm understanding of how the claims process works as well as the steps they take when trying to defend claims. He uses that knowledge today when gathering the information necessary to secure the benefits that clients deserve. Though he has experience with employees from a number of industries, Mr. Whiteman has done a significant amount of work on behalf of people in public safety, such as firefighters and police officers.

Mr. Whiteman is a member of the Atlanta Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Section and Litigation Section, the State Bar of Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation Law Section, the Sandy Springs Bar Association and the Lawyers Club of Atlanta. He frequently writes about his practice area and serves as a guest lecturer to peers.

For his track record of success, Mr. Whiteman has an Avvo “Superb” rating, and he holds the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.

When he is not at his practice, Mr. Whiteman enjoys spending time with his wife and three dogs.
