John Roberts is the owner and senior member of the firm and has a diverse business, educational and legal background which brings unique incites to the administration and daily delivery of legal representation to our clients. Graduating from Indiana State University in 1972, Mr. Roberts began his career in the area of Risk Management for hospitals which exceeded 800 beds. Having worked closely with medical staff, Board of Directors and hospital administration, Mr. Roberts gained unmatched experience in the management of medical and hospital liability and malpractice. During his tenure in hospital administration  his attention was directed to the development of pre-hospital emergency care and he was instrumental in the development of the Department of Transportation Regulations adopted by the United States government for both ground and  air ambulance. From this beginning he later acted as Public Safety Director for a large metropolitan government and supervised well over 600 employees in police, fire and emergency medical services and was honored by President Ronald Reagan for his achievements in this area. As a result of his willingness to commit resources to these areas and cutting edge innovations he has worked with officials in many areas of the world. To name a few; The Crown Prince of  Saudi Arabia, Abu-Dubai and United Arab Emirates, 101st Airborne, The Air Ministry of Canada, the newly formed government of Poland, and the Israeli Army. He acted as a special assistant to Governor Rockefeller in the development of a statewide air ambulance program administered by the state police and has been published in many trade and medical journals.

 

After living what most would declare a full life, Mr. Roberts was drawn to the practice of law. Having graduated summa cum laude and President of his legal fraternity, Mr. Roberts received at graduation the honor of being most likely to succeed in the practice of law by his fellow classmates. Mr. Roberts clerked for a downtown firm and after graduation continued to work for the firm for a short time prior to establishing his own law firm, The Roberts Law Firm which was established in late 1991.

 

Mr. Roberts has represented well over 16,000 clients in his tenure as owner and senior member of the firm. The Firm has continued to grow and flourish under his tutelage and has far exceeded his expectations. He currently enjoys the opportunity to work in the court room and has represented many diverse interests in his career. He is now routinely called upon to assist in the area of Indian Affairs and Gaming and other Native Peoples interests. His representation extends to Public Traded companies and a variety of nation wide corporations in the manufacturing, health-care, and food service industry. He has most recently represented a state agency in the United States Supreme Court and has been a municipal court judge in the State of Georgia since 2004.
