William C. Head was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. A product of the Muscogee County public school system, he graduated from Columbus High School. In the Fall of 1969, he started college at the University of Georgia. In 1969, Columbus High School, his alma mater, was named the top public high school in America. That excellent foundation prepared him to enter the University of Georgia fully prepared to take on college work.
Ultimately, Mr. Head graduated with his law degree from the University of Georgia’s School of Law in 1976. Before that, he received his undergraduate degree from UGA in history, with honors, in 1973. Starting in 1970, he worked as a bank teller and in the trust department for the former First National Bank of Athens when Buddy Milner was the President. In 1979, he joined the President’s Club for UGA, and still contributes.
His early years in practice were in Athens, GA. Because he was located in a smaller community, specialization was almost unheard of in 1976. So, Mr. Head learned “the ropes” by handling all types of cases, including real estate disputes, setting up and advising corporate organizations, litigating for banks and small finance companies, handling contested and uncontested divorces, juvenile cases, criminal cases and a variety of civil litigation cases.
This diverse work and law practice background has served him well in dealing with people on a PERSONAL level and understanding the nuances of a small-town law practice and multiple areas of law.
Two of his former law partners from his days in Athens ultimately became judges in Clarke County, and one is still serving as a Superior Court Judge.
Moving to Atlanta in 1991, Mr. Head focused primarily on handling contested criminal matters, but always kept his hand in civil litigation cases, too. He has been a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association for over 30 years and is a Champion Member of that organization. He has been an invited speaker at several programs for GTLA in the past several years. He also holds life membership in several other national and state trial law organizations.
Beginning in 1993, Mr. Head became an invited speaker for the American Trial Lawyers Association (now known as the American Academy of Justice), and spoke in Washington, DC, New York City and other locations. By learning the nuts and bolts of handling complex trials, such as vehicular homicide cases, Mr. Head also became adept at identifying the critical legal issues that pertain to wrongful death and fatal accident investigations and civil litigation.
Starting in 2008, Mr. Head began a nationwide search for America’s most successful personal injury law attorneys, compiling a lengthy list of highly-credentialed lawyers who had recovered over $100 million for their respective clients. Many of these litigators have recovered in excess of a billion dollars throughout their stellar careers. This private list, and those targeted litigation attorneys, are the crux of this website and Mr. Head’s unique “two highly-credentialed attorneys are better than one” campaign.
By inviting only those personal injury attorneys whose results verify that they are among the very best, Mr. Head has thereby assured all of his clients that he and his team will undertake to represent every client in obtaining a consistent, comprehensive financial recovery through this website’s unique model.
For 42 years, Mr. Head has proudly served thousands of clients across the state of Georgia in litigation cases – both civil and criminal. His accolades and awards are a matter of public record. Some of the recognitions and achievements are identified below by the icons shown in this montage.
