Trucking Accidents:
Profit Over Safety

Attorney John Houghton has a long record of battling the trucking industry. He litigated many big cases for a prominent truck accident firm before starting his own practice in 2010. John is well-versed in the federal regulations that transportation companies routinely violate to make more money. His skill and tenacity helps devastated victims and families get justice by revealing the negligence and greed that led to their tractor-trailer collisions.

Who Enabled The Drunk Driver?

Drinking and driving ruins lives. Under Georgia’s dram shop laws, a business that served the alcohol or a host who let an intoxicated guest get behind the wheel may be held legally responsible. Our legal team pursues all avenues of compensation to help our clients recover and rebuild. John actively volunteers with MADD Georgia (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) to help prevent these tragedies and strengthen the legal remedies for victims.
