Zach Meeks – Personal Injury Attorney In Georgia

I am a native Georgian, born and raised in the Atlanta metropolitan area. I graduated from Milton High School in Milton, Georgia where I met my wife and love of my life, Melissa. As the proud father of two amazing daughters, being Dad is my most important job. When I am away from the practice of law, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending college football games, playing golf, traveling to new destinations, and attending The Vine Church in Cumming, Georgia.

I returned to my hometown of Atlanta to establish my law practice, where I offer my services as a personal injury attorney.

Why Impact Law?

Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

When you experience a personal injury resulting from a car accident, a work incident, or any other cause, you may feel as if you are on your own. You have insurance companies and at-fault parties to deal with, all while trying to recover from your injuries and restore normalcy to your life. The other parties involved do not necessarily have your best interests at heart and are not likely to offer you the compensation you deserve. By working with a personal injury lawyer, you can get an experienced, objective negotiator and litigator in your corner – someone who can give you the correct legal advice and fight for your rights. Whether settling the case through mediation or taking the matter all the way to court, your personal injury lawyer will take on negligent and at-fault parties, as well as their insurance providers and legal representatives, to ensure that your rights are protected, and your recovery secured.
