Chattanooga Based Personal Injury Attorney Gary Massey Transcends His Humble Beginnings

Chattanooga Based Personal Injury Attorney Gary Massey Transcends His Humble Beginnings To Become A Champion of the Davids Versus The Goliaths

Chattanooga, TN – June 10, 2011 – Growing up in the small middle Tennessee town of Fayetteville, Gary Massey dreamed of but could scarcely imagine being able to go to a university, let alone receive a full scholarship to the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, rank in the Top 3% of his class and become a member of their Law Review.

Several years out of law school, in December 2000, he fulfilled one of his lifelong goals, joining forces with Bill Speek and launching Massey & Speek, PC, a Chattanooga based law firm that focuses its practice on helping the disadvantaged enforce their rights against those who mistreat them.

Priding themselves on helping ordinary people with legal problems, the firm’s attorneys are experts in a number of areas, many of them connected to personal injury: auto accidents, workers’ compensation, nursing home abuse, wrongful death, premises liability, Social Security Disability and bankruptcy cases, and cases related to Asbestos and Mesothelioma.

A few years after Speek’s departure, Massey added another lawyer and recently added several more to his staff. Among them is one who specializes in nursing homes and medical malpractice; a former police officer and prosecutor who has rich trial and courtroom experience; and another who is well versed in slip and fall type cases. Some of these lawyers work outside the main office in an independent contractor situation. Massey and Associates also handles class action and multi-district litigation for such cases as defective medical devices and recalls of items like implants or prosthetics.

Massey recently opened a satellite office in Dalton, Georgia (between Chattanooga and Atlanta), with lawyers who are licensed to practice in that state and add their expertise to Massey’s multitude of cases.

Many of his regionally based clients couldn’t afford to hire a lawyer if he did not accept their cases on a contingency basis. He has made them the foundation of his practice because “those are the people who do most of the working and serving in this area, and are thus susceptible to auto or work related injuries. Those are the people most likely to suffer the kind of hardship cases we specialize in.”
