Summary

With 30 years of experience, Ken Bernard remains passionate about every client, regardless of the size of the case. He has been involved in numerous successful million and multi-million dollar personal injury resolutions, but still rolls up his sleeves and engages each client’s case individually, regardless of the size of the case.

Ken has been awarded numerous awards over the past 30 years. The most recent include the 2018 Martindale Most Honored Professional Award and the 2018 Avvo Top Rated Lawyer Award.

“We care about people in this community in West Georgia,” he says. “And while we have cases all over the state — and some out of state — there’s something about being a contributor to your community and helping people at times when they’re stressed the most. I want to be their neighbor lawyer, I want to be the guy who they think of in their community that they want by their side.”
