Our Firm

In 1977, the majority of the partners in a century-old firm founded Dickey, Whelchel, Miles and Brown, in Brunswick, Georgia. In the thirty-eight years since, the firm has evolved to its present incarnation – Brown, Readdick, Bumgartner, Carter, Strickland & Watkins, LLP. While technology and the legal landscape have changed, our location in southeast Georgia’s “Golden Isles,” and our commitment to providing exceptional service to clients throughout Georgia and North Florida, have not.

Our attorneys have ample practical experience in virtually every jurisdiction in Georgia, and have handled numerous cases in Florida and other southeastern states as well. With over 235 combined years of trial experience, our attorneys have tried several hundred cases to jury verdict, and have represented clients in hundreds of administrative and workers’ compensation proceedings. Our litigation practice is wide-ranging. We represent international manufacturers in products liability cases, business disputes, and even warranty claims; insurance companies and their insureds; local governments and local government officials; corporate clients, local businesses and professionals, and more. In addition, our attorneys also provide companies with non-litigation services, including insurance and contract review, employment guideline and manual drafting, and advice with regard to EEOC compliance.
