ABOUT US - Working For Personal Injury Victims

Attorney Catherine Gibson has tried cases against insurance companies and represents people who suffer physical and mental damages from car accidents, slip and falls and trucking accidents. She spends her time investigating claims and working every angle of the case to ensure that her clients who suffered serious injuries recover for the losses they have sustained. A personal injury affects more than just the individual, the whole family is impacted when a loved one is hurt.

Since the founding of the firm, we have helped thousands of families obtain justice and get paid what they deserve for their injuries. We know how an accident can not only injure your body but impact your ability to work. Our clients are not just a number, we know their names and their children’s names. We are committed to helping our clients get back to living their lives to the fullest. People choose our firm because we take the time to get to know our clients so we can explain with intimate detail the hardship they face when dealing with an injury. Please contact The Gibson Law Firm if you or a loved one was injured due to someone else's negligence. We have an office in the Atlanta area and New York City area. We look forward to meeting with you to evaluate your case. The personal injury consultation is free and confidential.

A Law Firm with a Personal Touch

We care about our clients. We take the time to get to know them and understand the unique challenges they face: whether it is a major surgery, a permanent disability or facing the possibility of losing their job because they are physically hurt. The staff and attorneys are good at what they do, and they care about people. Please call or visit our office and we will make you feel comfortable and, you will be treated with respect and courtesy, from the paralegals who greets you to our personal injury attorneys who will fight the insurance companies for you. We don’t let the insurance companies short change you. We fight for your rights and for your recovery.


The big insurance companies try to pay as little as possible to resolve your injury. The aggressive attorneys at The Gibson Law Firm are prepared to take them on for you and demand the maximum settlement you deserve.

We represent people who have been injured in car accidents, slip and falls, and trucking accidents and Georgia and families who have lost loved ones in wrongful deaths. Our legal professionals are dedicated to helping people obtain the financial settlement they deserve for their losses. Please contact our Atlanta office for a free and confidential consultation about your accident case. There is no obligation and you don't pay us unless you win.
