Christopher L. Beerman is a Swift Currie attorney practicing workers’ compensation defense.
Christopher works closely with employers to control costs and provide effective representation throughout the workers’ compensation claims process, including document review and summary, corresponding with all parties, conducting depositions, attending mediations, negotiating settlements and going to trial.
Previously, Christopher served as the sole staff attorney for Hon. John H. Bailey, Jr., Hon. Jeffery Malcom and Hon. Thomas L. Hodges in the Georgia Superior Courts, Northern Circuit. After that, he served as an assistant solicitor-general and assistant district attorney for the Columbus Consolidated Government. In those roles he worked with local law enforcement agencies and the offices of all the judges in the Chattahoochee Circuit, which allowed him an inside look at the workings of local government in Georgia’s second biggest city. Christopher and his wife then moved to the Atlanta area where he joined a criminal defense firm.

Additionally, he utilizes his attention to detail and ability to develop a positive rapport with others throughout every stage of the claims process to achieve the best results possible for his clients. He emphasizes extensive preparation along with open and direct communication in order to build trusting relationships.
