The attorneys of The Law Offices of Edwards & Johnson, LLC, have become known as some of the foremost experts on legal matters pertaining to horses, horse ownership and related businesses in the state of Georgia. From our offices in downtown Canton, we represent horse owners, trainers, breeders, riders and veterinarians.

As horse owners and enthusiasts, John C. Edwards and B. Glen Johnson have firsthand experience with many of the issues facing horse owners. The partners have played a substantive role in shaping Georgia's equine policy through legislative proposals. Mr. Edwards was a founding member of the Equine Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia. Both Mr. Edwards and Mr. Johnson serve as pro bono board members for Equine Advocates of North Georgia, Inc., a nonprofit horse rescue, rehabilitation and advocacy group.

Handling Contract Breaches

Lawsuits arising out of equine sale, service or purchase agreements can be resolved through mediation, arbitration or litigation. The attorney you choose to represent you should have both the experience and the trial ability needed to successfully negotiate the best possible outcome. Legal remedies that are available to you range from money damages and specific performance to cease-and-desist orders (injunction) and rescission of the agreement.

Consortium Registration For Veterinarians

Legislative reforms allow veterinarians to register consortiums for the purposes of purchasing medical supplies at greater quantities and lower rates. For more information about either registering a veterinary consortium or joining a consortium, consult with a lawyer at our firm.
