Our History

The Helms family began representing the people of South Georgia when Jeff Helms' father, Jack Helms Sr. opened his practice in Pearson, Georgia, in 1958. Soon, he was recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in the state. The State Bar of Georgia honored him, in 1987, with one of its highest awards, the Tradition of Excellence Award.
