About Our Georgia Personal Injury Law Firm

Attorney Derek M. Hays completed law school in just two years while serving as vice president of the student bar association and earning numerous academic awards. The traditional track takes three years, but he was determined to enter his profession and begin making a difference for injury victims, which he did in 1997.

We Have Recovered Millions In Compensation For The Injured And Grieving

Mr. Hays was a long-standing partner in another prominent Atlanta metro personal injury firm prior to founding the Law Office of Derek M. Hays in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Specializing in personal injury and wrongful death litigation, he has been recognized with many of the most prominent honors conferred on lawyers in his chosen practice area. These include:

  • Mr. Hays is a member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which are limited to attorneys who have obtained individual verdicts or settlements exceeding one million dollars and two million dollars, respectively. Fewer than one percent of attorneys in the United States are members of both groups.
  • Mr. Hays has been selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Georgia by the National Trial Lawyers Association for each year since 2007.

All told, Derek M. Hays has obtained approximately $100 million in personal injury and wrongful death compensation for victims of negligence and their families.

We Work For You · Our Approach And Dedication Reflect That Fact

We represent only victims of negligence and reckless, violent acts — never insurance companies or other corporate clients. Our strengths cover case-building, negotiations and litigation after car accidents, landlord negligence, severe on-the-job accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect and other devastating events.

Our personal injury law firm's core values are grounded in what Mr. Hays observed and learned from his father, who was a Christian minister for more than 50 years. For you, this means:

  • We help clients who need help, regardless of their cultural backgrounds, economic circumstances and other factors.
  • We will get to know you, be honest and straightforward, and provide an all-out effort in your case, never forgetting that we work for you.
