Darl H. Champion Jr.

“I’ve always rooted for the underdog – the law was a natural fit.”

Darl Champion “Champ” became a personal injury lawyer because he is passionate about fighting for people. When he gets a call, the person on the other end has a problem, and it needs to be solved. Getting the best result and holding the right people accountable is the reason Darl comes to work every day and why he founded The Champion Firm.

Undervaluing cases is how insurers avoid responsibility, and it’s where Darl can step in to help.

A $1 million insurance settlement may sound good if you’re injured, but not if your case is worth $3 million.

For Darl, a victory is about making a difference in his clients’ ability to get well physically and financially, so they can move on. He lives for the chance to go the distance and stand up to large insurance companies. He does this by digging into the facts and fighting harder than other law firms for as long as it takes to get everything a client deserves.

Darl’s Background

After graduating magna cum laude from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law, he served in a highly coveted federal judicial clerkship with the Honorable Hugh Lawson in the Middle District of Georgia. Darl credits this as one of the best experiences of his life.

After that clerkship, Darl spent time on the defense side of personal injury law. This is where he saw the lengths large insurance companies would go to deny their obligation to injury victims. While he learned their tactics first-hand, he also quickly realized that he wanted to spend his legal career helping people through the personal injury process.

Darl and his wife Julia reside in Smyrna, GA with their two children.
