Gower Wooten & Darneille is becoming recognized as one of Atlanta's up and coming law firms for insurance defense, premises liability defense, and construction defect litigation.
Our partners have nearly 50 years of combined practice, and our team of attorneys has experience with clients in a wide range of industries. Litigation skills are one of the hallmarks of the firm. As a result, we have gone to trial and appeal in cases ranging from minor automobile cases to large wrongful death claims.
With offices in both Atlanta and Greenville, South Carolina, we are able to serve clients in two of the most dynamic and growing areas of the Southeast.
We regularly handle time-limit demands for several insurance companies, as well as counseling and defending insurers in extra-contractual liability claims. Anne Gower, one of our partners, is recognized as one of Georgia's leading attorneys in bad faith litigation, having defended a number of suits through trial.
Our attorneys have years of experience in construction law, having assisted contractors, subcontractors, owners, and other stakeholders in a wide range of issues and disputes. Whether in litigation or arbitration, we help protect our clients from claims of defective work. We have also represented clients in several government contract issues, from bid protests to requests for equitable adjustments.
Our insurance coverage practice is a very active one. Routinely, we advise insurers in several states on coverage opinion, declaratory judgment actions, and policy construction. We have also successfully litigated cases through trial and appeal.
Our attorneys have handled all types of insurance defense cases. From general insurance defense claims to automobile accidents, premises liability, and product liability, we have litigated and resolved, literally, hundreds of cases with liability exposure ranging from a few thousand to several million dollars.
Premises liability is an important issue for convenience stores, retail stores, apartment owners, and other businesses. We regularly defend clients against "slip and fall," "trip and fall," and other claims. As a result, we have been able to obtain several summary judgments and favorable settlements.
Our attorneys not only help you resolve current tax controversies, but also can guide you to anticipate, prepare for, and avoid potential tax issues. The experience we have in complex litigation issues can help you quickly achieve the most advantageous, cost effective result, whether at the administrative level with the IRS or in United States District Courts and Circuit Courts of Appeals.
Our estate planning and probate practice prepares and protects your family and your assets. Whether you need a will, power of attorney, health care directive or a more detailed and nuanced estate plan, trust, or estate planning, our experience and attention to detail ensure that you and your loved ones are protected and your wishes are carried out.
