The GGH Mission

Gaines Gault Hendrix PC has carefully assembled diverse practice areas in order to give our clients a comprehensive source of legal protection. Our attorneys have reach across the spectrum of civil litigation, in every field from trucking litigation to funeral home liability.

Aggressive defense begins with preparation. When a client needs help, there may not be time for an attorney to “study up” on a specific area of law. That’s why we maintain expertise across various legal disciplines, and we stay abreast of any developments in those fields. From new regulations affecting employers, to recent precedents in insurance litigation or the intricacies of nursing home litigation, Gaines Gault Hendrix PC understands the law.

Our familiarity with each of these areas lets us focus on every case’s unique factors, and “hit the ground running” when the time comes to defend.
