More than 65 years of helping those in need
In September 1952, C.C. Perkins was admitted to practice law and opened the Law Offices of C.C. Perkins in Carrollton, Georgia. With the help of his wife Margaret who served as his office manager, C.C. sought to establish a law practice that helped serve the West Georgia area by providing quality legal representation to individuals.
Throughout the years, the name of the business has changed from the Law Offices of C.C. Perkins to Perkins and Perkins and then to Perkins Law Firm as a new generation, including daughter Ann-Margaret, joined the law practice. During all this time, the focus on helping individuals in need has stayed the same as the firm moved from a general practice to one specializing in serious personal injury and wrongful death.
Sixty-five years after C.C. Perkins was admitted to practice law, Perkins Law Firm is still helping individuals with injury claims, wrongful death, and more. Our support staff is the finest you will find anywhere.
Perkins Law Firm is proud to have served Carrollton and the surrounding communities of West Georgia for over sixty-five years. We look forward to the future as we remain focused on C.C. Perkins’ mission of providing quality legal representation to individuals in need.
I wanted to thank each and every one of you for making me feel comfortable as I was in the dark about everything.
