After graduating from Emory Law, Mr. Gilbert began his law career working as an insurance defense lawyer, primarily defending the Travelers Insurance Companies where he was trying approximately 8-10 jury trials a year. He then took his trial experience to the plaintiff side working for a small general practice within the personal injury and workers' compensation areas. Soon thereafter, he established his own firm as a specialized sole practitioner and has been representing Plaintiffs and Claimants ever since.
Jeffrey S. Gilbert treats each case, each affected individual client and family, with the utmost respect, often developing lifelong friendships along the way. He is known as a bulldog or as the fixer to his clients. He was an avid motorcycle racer and still skis at an expert level bringing that competitiveness to his practice. In addition to being a dedicated lawyer, Mr. Gilbert draws from his life experience and professional background to serve his community by helping people become the best they can be, despite being confronted with tragedy.
In addition to devoting his time and effort to advocating for the legal rights of a wide variety of injured persons, especially sufferers of catastrophic injuries suffered in auto accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, and a limited number of catastrophic workers compensation cases. Jeffrey S. Gilbert is the founder of Alpine Adaptive Ski Program — a 501c3 charity that helps physically challenged individuals rediscover a changed life through the joy of skiing with modified equipment and specialized training.
His hands-on work through AASPGA.ORG is proof of attorney Gilbert’s deep empathy for people who experience catastrophic injury and profound, life-changing disability. He maintains an enduring respect for the courage of the injured clients he represents throughout Georgia — people who awaken every day to the harsh reality of extreme physical limitations. Mr. Gilbert’s goal of restoring people’s quality of life is a cornerstone of his law practice.
