Helping You Recover
After An Injury

I am attorney Leslie Waycaster. In my four decades of practice, I have represented hundreds of injured people in Northwest Georgia and statewide. Those personal injury cases have ranged widely and include auto collisions, slip and falls, assaults, defective products, medical negligence and work-related injuries.

We don’t operate a high-volume practice; I take fewer cases and really dig into them. My mission is to support clients in recovering as fully as possible from an accident. That means preparing the strongest case for full compensation and standing up to the insurance companies. I know what your case is worth, and I won’t sell you short.

Litigator, Mediator,
Problem Solver

I have tried more than 100 cases to jury verdict in 25 counties of Georgia, plus numerous trials in federal court. Once I get involved in a case, my experience as a trial lawyer commonly results in a settlement of a case without the need for a trial. In and out of court, my litigation experience works in your favor.


I am attorney Leslie Waycaster, and I believe strongly in solving problems, not making more problems. I take a practical approach to law that keeps the focus on resolving issues effectively and efficiently. My preferred method is mediation, but if matters need to be handled through litigation, you can rest assured that I will come prepared and be the aggressive advocate you need and deserve.

From People We’ve Helped

Just what I was looking for…

I’m a small business owner and went to Mr. Waycaster to incorporate my business. I chose to do business with Mr. Waycaster because he seemed genuinely interested in me as a client. He took the time to ask questions about my business so he could best advise me. It wasn’t about just doing the job at hand, which was my impression from other attorneys, but about building client relationships. That was important to me. I will continue to do business with Mr. Waycaster as my business grows and will definitely recommend him to others.

“THANK YOU” Leslie for being by my side every step of the way!!!

I was represented by Leslie Waycaster in 2010 after my husband’s accident. I can highly recommend him as an attorney. Leslie is not only very knowledgeable and very good at what he does and in my opinion, one of the best attorneys in Dalton but he is also very caring and compassionate about his clients. I was pleased and honestly surprised on how much I was updated throughout the whole process. It was nice to have an attorney that cared so much and felt my pain.
