About

Many law firms handle some workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability claims, but few have devoted their entire practice and careers to representing workers disabled by work accidents and individuals who are rendered permanently disabled by illness or injury. At Tillman & Associates, that is all we do and we relentlessly pursue excellence in our practice.

With offices in Atlanta, we are one of Georgia’s most established and respected workers’ compensation law firms. Before founding our firm in 1991, Burt Tillman spent years representing insurance companies in the area of workers’ compensation, learning their perspective and gaining an in-depth understanding of workers’ compensation issues. Likewise, Kyle Johnston of Tillman & Associates spent years on the insurance defense side of workers’ compensation.

As attorneys representing injured workers, they have won substantial financial recoveries for their clients and secured the medical treatment they need and deserve.

Burt Tillman is also a respected Georgia mediator, having helped resolve thousands of workers’ compensation claims for other attorneys. As co-owner of Mediated Dispute Resolutions, LLC, he is asked by other lawyers to help guide them and their clients, on both sides, through the settlement process and issue resolution through mediation. This experience is tremendously valuable to our workers’ compensation clients, who benefit from having such expertise in helping them resolve their own cases promptly and effectively.

“We’re known as fierce advocates who are capable of fighting for our clients. People know we will meet them on the battle line if necessary. Therefore, it’s very often not necessary. Negotiation is the art of listening to all sides and learning what the other side is looking for in order to get what you want.” — Burt Tillman

People in Atlanta and across Georgia know us and respect us. Even opposing insurance companies understand that we are here to help our clients and that we are always after a good and just result for all involved.
