    Attorney Profile

    Attorney John Aspinwall Garland is a fourth-generation attorney and an associate with the Atlanta-based law firm of Garland, Samuel & Loeb, P.C. Following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Mr. Garland decided to enter the legal profession after receiving his undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from The University of Vermont in 2000. He then relocated back to his native Atlanta and attended the University of Georgia School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 2004.

    A highly rated and experienced trial lawyer, Mr. Garland not only focuses his practice primarily on criminal defense, but he also devotes a portion of his practice to personal injury law and professional malpractice defense. He serves clients throughout the Atlanta metro region, including Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb and Gwinnett counties.

    Over the course of his more than 13 years practicing law, Mr. Garland has helped numerous clients protect their rights in the face of all types of serious state and federal offenses, including murder, fraud, drug violations, federal crimes, sex crimes and more.

    Through his personal injury practice, he has helped countless individuals and families recover the full compensation they deserve for the damages and losses they sustained due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

    Learning his work ethic from his predecessors, Mr. Garland embraces the firm's mission to treat all clients with the utmost professionalism and respect. He tirelessly advocates on behalf of all he serves, and he always puts his clients' needs above everything else.

    From this high level of commitment to his practice and his clients, Mr. Garland has received numerous awards and accolades, and in 2008, the Georgia Bar Journal named him as one of Georgia's Legal Legacies. In addition, Georgia Trend Magazine has named him a Legal Elite since 2012.

    Licensed as an attorney in Georgia since 2004, Mr. Garland is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia as well as before the Court of Appeals of Georgia.
