John Watson Law Group LLC

Overview and Mission

John Watson graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1973 and has practiced law since his admission to the Georgia Bar in 1973.  He is admitted to all Georgia trial and appellate courts, as well as the federal courts in Georgia and the United States Supreme Court. 

In the early years of his practice, he worked for the District Attorneys Association of Georgia, then a federally funded task force, and once taught at the North Georgia Police Academy. 

Mr. Watson has had the honor of serving as a panel member in a National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) seminar.  

Mr. Watson has the honor and privilege of having a peer rating of AV® Preeminent™ 5 out of 5 by Martindale, the highest possible rating. 

In the trial of hundreds of cases and the handling and resolution of many more, Mr. Watson has experienced virtually every defense, offense, and tactic conceivable in many areas of litigation.  These experiences have instilled an in depth understanding of the process and an efficiency and philosophy for dealing with it.

For example, the creditor in a commercial case should have at least a basic understanding of the litigation process and certain evidentiary pitfalls.  Only then can the creditor understand why certain basic business practices can greatly increase the likelihood of success should commercial litigation become necessary.  These practices are neither difficult nor expensive to implement.

 This "preventive law" approach can eliminate many everyday problems facing businesses, and, should a problem nonetheless occur, what to expect and how to better deal with it. This approach has been proven to result in more satisfied clients, whether the representation be advice and counseling, litigation, or alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration.

 While this office will always aggressively prosecute or defend any case in which it becomes involved, civil or criminal, the client is encouraged to take advantage of the case as a learning tool to prevent future situations, or at least be well prepared for them.  If so desired, this office can assist in training and a review of forms and practices.  An educated client is generally a better and more successful client.

 This office recognizes that clients are not after a mere piece of paper called a judgment; instead, they expect that every effort will be made to enforce that judgment.  Obtaining a judgment is viewed as only a part of the service a client expects, and every effort, practice and procedure, whether obvious or esoteric, will be examined and used where appropriate.  While many lawyers are not familiar with the nuts and bolts of enforcing a judgment once obtained, this office has extensive experience in the enforcement of judgments, wherever obtained.
