Since our law firm’s founding in 1971, we have consistently strived to provide top tier legal services nationwide. To that end, our firm is proud to have an office located in Atlanta, to better serve Georgia state residents whether they are injured on land, in a hotel or on a cruise ship. While most people don’t immediately think of Atlanta, a landlocked city, as a hub for major cruising or maritime law, the fact is that Atlanta is home to a large percentage of cruise ship passengers. Georgia residents not only make up a large part of our cruise ship and maritime clientele, but Georgia residents love to travel and also make up a large portion of our hotel and resort accident law clientele. The significant number of clients we have throughout the state of Georgia are why Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman decided to open offices in Atlanta, to better serve you.
