Our team is made up of a diverse group of attorneys, experts, case managers and paralegals who love what they do and care about people. We pride ourselves on constant communication with our clients in conjunction with compassion, understanding and fairness. As our founder Jason M. Ferguson recently said, “Regardless of a person’s race, gender, age, sexual preference or religion, people just want to see hard work and compassion. Human suffering does not discriminate.”
Jason M. Ferguson – Owner/Founder
“Jason would call me out of the blue at night to check on me. He knew the names of every member of my family and I never felt like I was in the dark. I could talk to him about anything.” – Justin, Moultrie, Georgia
Mr. Ferguson was born in Dothan, Alabama and raised in the small, rural, farm community of Edison, Georgia. He attended Valdosta State University where he majored in Political Science and later attended law school at Mercer University, graduating with honors in 2001. At Mercer Law School, Mr. Ferguson was a published member of Law Review and competed nationally on the competitive mock trial team.
Following his first year of law school, Mr. Ferguson worked as a judicial clerk for a federal judge in Macon, Georgia. He was later hired by a Fortune 500 automobile insurance company as a legal intern where he accepted a position as a trial attorney immediately following law school. As an insurance defense attorney, Mr. Ferguson was trained from within and learned the tactics, tendencies and strategies of some of the most prominent insurance companies in the nation. He now uses what he learned from his time as an insurance defense trial attorney to help injured victims WIN!
Mr. Ferguson was later recruited by the United States Department of Justice where he served for 5 years as a federal prosecutor prosecuting large-scale federal criminals. Mr. Ferguson has said, “I learned so much about the world as a federal prosecutor. I was fair to every person I prosecuted, but I did not mind putting a bad person behind bars.” While serving as a federal prosecutor, he was recognized by the Albany Herald as one of southwest Georgia’s “40 under 40” in 2010.
Knowing that personal injury was his passion, Mr. Ferguson opened his own practice in 2011 representing injury victims throughout Georgia and Alabama. Since opening his own law firm, Mr. Ferguson has represented thousands of accident victims and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. AV-rated as a Preeminent Attorney by Martindale Hubbell and a member of both the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and the Alabama Association of Justice, Mr. Ferguson utilizes his expertise in the areas of injury and insurance law to assist his clients in achieving unbelievably successful results.
“I cannot count the number of times I have been in my clients’ homes, had them in my home, attended sporting events together or generally been a part of their lives outside of the tragedy that brought us together. Their children often know my children. On college football Saturdays my phone is going off all day with good-spirited trash-talk texts between myself and clients. But in the process, I learn so much about what they have been through, their pain, and how the acts of carelessness of someone or something else has forever changed their lives. When its time to fight, we are ready to get after it.”
Our case managers and paralegals are professionals that have been highly trained and are focused on client service and detail. Mr. Ferguson’s approach is pretty straightforward, “I require all of my staff, from case managers to litigation paralegals, to go to court and attend trials. I want them to see the end result and the big picture. Their role is just as important as the lawyers in a case.”
When you become a client of our firm, a team is assigned to your case. Subject matter experts in specific areas of the law and science like trucking law, accident reconstruction, engineering, insurance law, aviation law, maritime law and premises liability are often assigned to maximize the value of your case. We often utilize preeminent experts in the field of medicine including orthopedics, neurology, brain injury and plastic surgery to make sure that our clients are receiving proper medical care and proving the real value of their case.
WE SUPPORT OUR VETERANS AND THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY
We love and support the Patriots that defend us. Mr. Ferguson served over 14 years as an officer in the Army Reserve and the Georgia Air National Guard. At the Ferguson Law Group we go out of our way to support veterans who have been injured due to the careless acts of others and we are available to them 24/7 in their time of need.
“Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deserve way more credit than they receive for the sacrifices that they make. Their families often suffer most.”
We have handled thousands of injury claims on behalf of military members and veterans stationed near or living on the large number of military bases in Georgia and Alabama. Just because your serving away from home does not mean that you do not have a local law firm ready to fight for you if you or your family has been injured.
If you or your loved ones are injured, call us. We are here if you need us.
