Darl Champion

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

Passionate about fighting for his clients and holding the right people accountable, Attorney Darl Champion is dedicated to getting the best possible result in every single case he takes. Since starting The Champion Firm in 2014, Darl Champion and his team have successfully litigated and settled over $100 million for clients all across Georgia.

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 in a car accident, 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

Darl Champion sitting with wife and two kids in autumn

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.
