Jenkins & Olson, P.C., was established in August, 1984, with an initial specialty in insurance defense and zoning. The original name was Jenkins & Bergman. Frank E. Jenkins, III, is a founding partner and Peter R. Olson became a partner in 2000.

The overall goal of the firm is to win the trial of the case, or achieve the best possible settlement, as the client desires.

The firm uses Juris, a sophisticated computer system that includes automated billing. It is an integrated software package which records all services performed on a case-by-case basis and integrates the accounts payable, the general ledger and the accounts receivable. The services provided through this program include: (1) documentation of all legal work performed by a partner, an associate or a paralegal, and (2) explanation of all expense disbursements made by the firm on behalf of the client, such as court costs and witness fees. All legal work is tracked by each timekeeper and entered directly into the billing system. Disbursements are recorded in the system simultaneously with the issuance of payment. Monthly reports of all case activity are forwarded to the billing partner for review and approval prior to mailing to the client. The accounting department can assist with any and all information on each individual case. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at (770) 387-1373.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
