PARTNER AT CHESTNUT & BELLER
Mr. Chestnut began his legal career in his home town, Savannah, in 1982. “I handled cases involving real estate to domestic relations and everything in between. The first lawsuit I drafted was a class action claim against General Motors.” In the early 90’s Mr. Chestnut concentrated his efforts on workers’ compensation cases.
In 1995 Mr. Chestnut moved his successful practice to Marietta, Georgia, where he continues to serve those who can benefit from his depth of experience and dedication to those seeking help with job-related injuries.
In addition to handling Georgia workers' compensation claims, Mr. Chestnut is one of the few attorneys in the nation who have handled virtually all types of workers' compensation claims. He has experience with claims under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, the Federal Employees' Compensation Act, and actions for Maintenance and Cure (maritime claims). This broad base of experience, gained through 25 years representing injured workers, has given Mr. Chestnut both the knowledge and the compassion necessary to properly represent one who has been seriously injured on the job, whether the injury occurred around the corner or around the world.

The highest compliment to Mr. Chestnut is a repeat client, he says:
"When a client either comes back to me with another matter, or refers a family member or friend to me, I am honored. While results are very important, it is equally important that I treat my clients with respect and compassion, as I would want to be treated myself. I never forget that it is your case, and my job is to listen and understand your priorities and goals. I want to be the last attorney you hire, and the person you trust to handle any legal concerns of your family and friends."
