Young Thagard - Your Voice in south Georgia

Young, Thagard, Hoffman, Smith, Lawrence & Shenton, LLP is a Martindale-Hubbell AV rated law firm located in Valdosta, Lowndes County, Georgia.

In 1938, Cam U. Young, Jr. joined John B. Odum at his practice on the fifth floor of the Strickland Building in Valdosta, Georgia as an associate lawyer. In 1943, the firm changed its name to Odum & Young and the firm continued its general practice until 1951 when John Odum died. Cam Young continued the firm under the name Odum & Young until 1955.

In 1962, F. Thomas Young, Cam's son, joined the practice and it became known as Young & Young. New fields of practice were tackled and the geographic area in which the firm found itself representing clients expanded as well.

By 1994, when Cam Young retired, the firm had grown to include ten lawyers who regularly practiced throughout all of South Georgia. Tom Young retired in 2001 and since that time, the firm has continued to practice all over South Georgia where it has been a presence for almost seventy-five years, earning a reputation for hard work, diligent representation and excellent advice on behalf of its clients.

The firm was honored in the May 2009 issue of Best's Review where it was recognized as one of only sixty-nine law firms in the United States to have been continuously included in the annual Best's Directory of Recommended Attorneys. This is an honor of which the firm is very proud.

Young Thagard's attorneys have litigated and tried cases in the federal and state courts throughout south Georgia, in front of judges and juries, before the Court of Appeals of Georgia, before the Supreme Court of Georgia, before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and in mediations and arbitrations. Although our attorneys are licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Georgia, we focus on serving south Georgia and the Georgia coast.

    Review for Matthew R. Lawrence by a Sole Practitioner on 09/12/12 in Personal Injury

    I have opposed Matt in cases, and I have mediated many cases in which Matt was involved. He always is prepared and usually has a better grasp of the facts of the case than the opposing attorney, especially the medical facts.
