  1. In Georgia, all workers comp attorneys are limited to a 25% fee plus expenses. Both of which must be submitted and approved by the Georgia State Board of Workers Compensation. No attorney can promise you a cheaper rate, etc. To put this in perspective, most any bar card toting Georgia lawyer can represent your husband and they are limited to the 25% fee. The key is to find a workers comp. Lawyer that specializeses in this field. That will get you the true value of your case and not settle for less and charge you 25% of a cruddy settlement they "negotiated".. Jason Perkins of Carrollton is the head of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Workers Comp. Section. He doesnt advertise. He doesnt have to. His results speak for themself. Dont call some TV lawyer who wants to settle your case for whatever is offered. Jason is very well versed in GA Comp. Law and knows the value of a case. From personal experience he set a case value with my late husband and I before he sent our demand. He got our permission for a bottom line to settle. He exceeded that # by 20% effortlessly. He knows his job and he is hands on and honest. Tell him Annette sent you. Just call him for a free consultation over the phone and make up your own mind. His family has been practicing law in Carrollton 30+ years. His sister specializes in veteran claims. Like I said they dont advertise. No need. Best of luck.

  3. I've been twice. Love this place. The selection and the prices are great!!!
  4. I had surgery to correct a deviated septum. It was not very painful but there was alot of bleeding which made me sick to my stomach. They packed my nose with gauze to go home. My husband made me stop and have a margarita on the way home, which did help...Nothing too painful, just sore for the next few days. Unfortunately, my surgery didn't take and here we are ten years later and I still need to go back and get it re-done. Just been avoiding it...
  5. Just about 3/4 miles further down Austell Road going towards South Cobb the new International Farmer's Market is about to open up. This will be HUGE!!!!
  6. I had a client who had this happen to her and her husband. Her husband was a pitching coach for the ATL Braves. Once day he's out tinkering in the garage and a man walks up and asks him when he is gonna be out of the house as in MOVED OUT and this sets him off and he says he isn't going anywhere get the hell off my lawn! Turns out some low life had forged a sale deed then "sold" their home out from under them. They had to hire Roy Barnes firm to take the banks to task and get the deeds corrected and meanwhile chase potential buyers that kept showing up off their lawn for over A YEAR!!! It was a nightmare for the family. They were very affluent and lived over off East Paces. It's happening everywhere.
  7. Anyone know of a 2-3 bedroom house for rent anywhere in PC? Looking far and wide, all help appreciated!
  8. My sister in law had this and it got to be egg sized on her neck, just under her chin before she got it removed. Now whenever she eats something spicy a small patch on the side of her face beads up with sweat/saliva??. Must have re-wired something there during surgery... She is perfectly fine now other than the odd reaction to spicey foods.
  9. Johnny Pizza, (yes that's his name!) the owner, drove for Frank Sr. and went on to be a body guard and driver for Frank Jr. for years. Johnny has pics/autographs galore. When he was with Frank Jr. he rubbed some big elbows in California and Las Vegas. When Frank Jr. retired from touring Johnny opened a Hoboken Cafe in Las Vegas before landing here. His Parents, and two brothers Dr. Pizza, D.C. and Attorney Pizza all moved here from New Jersey over 25 years ago. Johnny and Roger moved here a few years back and opened the Hoboken Cafe here to be near their family. He has his ingredients, including the rolls, shipped here from his Jersey connections and makes the mozzarella fresh himself each and every morning!! Wonderful family. Great food!!!
  10. Kelly J. Huff/Marietta Daily JournalComplaints to the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission that a Cobb County judge was abusive in court preceded his abrupt resignation last week. Two Marietta lawyers told the Daily Report they had filed complaints with the JQC reporting abuse of attorneys, defendants and witnesses appearing before Cobb County Chief Magistrate Judge Frank Cox. The judge resigned Jan. 26 in a letter to the governor, saying he was leaving that day for health reasons. Cox couldn't be reached on Monday. The JQC, which serves as the state's watchdog for judges, conducts investigations in secret until and unless disciplinary action is taken. No action was taken in Cox's case, so the JQC is not commenting, said the director, former judge Ronnie Joe Lane. "Under our rules the commission cannot confirm whether or not a complaint was filed," Lane said. Both Marietta lawyers said their complaints involved their experiences of the judge hurling insults at them, their clients and witnesses in the courtroom. "I'm ashamed I didn't file it earlier. It was long overdue," Gary Jones said Monday of his complaint to the JQC, which he said he initiated in December. "I didn't want to allow people to be abused any longer." S. Judson Waites II said, "I've been before Judge Cox a number of times in the 15 years he was on the bench. I've never had a pleasant experience." Waites, who said he filed his JQC complaint in September, said, "I wish him the best in his future endeavors. I just did not think he needed to be a judge anymore." Both lawyers have solo practices that include criminal defense as well as civil matters. Both said Cox had a pattern of speaking abusively, particularly to women and minorities, asking personal questions and making insulting remarks about their heritage, marital status and children. But the complaints were by no means limited to any particular group. One example Jones gave involved a client who was homeless and could not provide the court with his address. "He had been living under bridges and sleeping on sofas of relatives," Jones said. "The judge belittled him to the point he had tears running down his face." Jones said Cox's abusiveness had grown markedly more severe recently. "It was progressive and it was getting much worse," Jones said. Jones said he knew other younger lawyers who had wanted to complain but feared reprisal from a sitting judge. "But I will turn 60 this year," Jones said. "I think it's time for the legal profession to stop abusing its members." As chief magistrate judge, Cox held extraordinary power over criminal cases, as every probable cause hearing and request for bond had to go through him before a case could proceed to Cobb County Superior Court. Cox had a list of assistant judges he appointed, but they handled mostly civil matters. "A lot of people don't realize that the chief magistrate is one of the most powerful people in county government," said Jones. "I think of it like the Old West when you have a bully in town and nobody says anything. Then one person steps out, and other people step out." Jones said he respected Waites for having the courage to make the first complaint. The judge's resignation letter to Gov. Nathan Deal seemed hastily written. The governor's name was spelled "Dean" instead of "Deal." "It is with regret that due to health issues I am submitting my resignation," Cox wrote. "I will take sick leave effective today," Cox continued, "and will resign my position effective Feb. 28, 2015." Cox presided over the highly publicized probable cause hearing last year for Ross Harris, the father of the toddler who died in a hot car outside the dad's office. Over defense objections, Cox allowed extensive testimony about the father's sexting on his cellphone. Cox then found probable cause for a murder charge and denied bond. Cox rankled some of his colleagues on the bench in 2012 by suggesting that they weren't busy enough. He wrote a letter to the Cobb County Board of Commissioners suggesting that they save money by eliminating a job from Cobb County State Court Division II, which handles misdemeanors such as traffic and DUI cases. Those judges also fill in when needed on the Cobb County Superior Court. The state court judges argued against the idea, and Commission Chairman Tim Lee avoided the dispute by noting that the state government sets the number of judicial positions. Those same state court judges will help fill in for Cox now on cases that can't be covered by the assistant magistrate judges, according to Ann Gordon, the magistrate court administrator. Cox was elected in 2000 as chief judge of the magistrate court and took office in January 2001, according to his bio on the court website. Previously, he served as an assistant district attorney for 15 years and was in private practice for five years prior. He graduated from Woodrow Wilson College of Law in 1979.
  11. "Around Town: Cox Resignation Opened Floodgate of Speculation by Joe Kirby, Otis A. Brumby III and Lee B. Garrett, - Around Town Columnists January 31, 2015 MONDAY’S ABRUPT resignation of Cobb Chief Magistrate Judge Frank Cox, ostensibly for health reasons, unleashed a torrent of gossip and speculation at the Cobb Courthouse this week. High-ranking current and former courthouse officials have told Around Town off the record Cox had frequently been “abusive” to the lawyers practicing in his courtroom and had made offensive remarks to women and minorities in his court. As one judge said after being told some of the specific allegations Around Town has heard, there is “a lot of well-sourced speculation” about Cox. A long-established MDJ courthouse source told AT that Richard Hyde, the lead investigator for the state Judicial Qualifications Commission, had spent several hours observing Cox’s courtroom in the past week or so and afterward told Cox privately that if he did not resign from the bench, he would open an official investigation against him. If that happened, according to the MDJ source, Cox would be suspended pending the outcome and if the state Supreme Court ruled against him, he would lose both his judgeship and his county pension. Cox, a former assistant district attorney, has 29 years of total service with the county. Cox has retained an attorney to represent him in the matter, but the attorney in question declined to tell the MDJ on the record that he is acting as Cox’s attorney. One high-ranking state Court official told AT that Hyde had been trying to reach him by phone in recent days, and an equally high-ranking Superior Court official told AT that he had “seen Hyde in the hallway” at the Courthouse. The Judicial Qualifications Commission conducts investigations and hearings based on complaints of ethical misconduct by Georgia judges. Its director, Ronnie Joe Lane, did not return AT’s phone calls."
  12. Judge Cox was head of Cobb Magistrate and occaisionally filled in at Cobb State. He riled all the folks at State Court up a few years back wanting to revamp the way things were done, cut costs and he strongly, verbally annouced his plans to spearhead a campaign to eliminate a job or two in State Court to the media. That didn't sit well with many of the State Court Judges and staffers. The official word is he is retiring "due to health reasons", but my money says someone caught him at the Tig Bitty Bar and he had to step down or get outted.... Just what I heard.
  13. Cobb County had cars (4) blocking entrance to Lost Mountain Road this morning, a car with flashers and caution lights at the county line entering Cobb from 120 EB and another Car with his lights on at the Lost Mtn. Ball Park sitting on 120. Anyone have any idea what's up?
