Butler Wooten Cheeley & Peak LLP Setting the Standard for Legal Success In America

Few law firms in America, and none in Georgia or the Southeast, can match the outstanding record of success achieved by Butler Wooten Cheeley & Peak LLP in the past 30 years. Whether personal injury or business tort, the firm has set new records for verdicts awarded, affirmed and collected.

Butler Wooten Cheeley & Peak LLP has battled some of the largest corporations in the world, and won. No firm in America has done more to benefit people who have been injured because of the greed, carelessness or negligence of large companies or other people. No firm in America has a better verdict or settlement record.

The firm has virtually reinvented how product liability and automobile defect claims are litigated. Key to obtaining decisive victories in these cases is forcing negligent companies to share information that establishes their liability. Butler Wooten Cheeley & Peak LLP has done just that, and gotten the courts to sanction companies that hid evidence or provided false information.
