The Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation Rules prohibit attorneys from lending money to their clients. Sometimes, unscrupulous attorneys will try to draw clients to their firms with promises of monetary loans or gifts in exchange for signing up to be represented by their firms. However, this is an ethical breach and is clearly against the governing rules for workers’ compensation claims in Georgia.
In short, one should seek representation elsewhere if a potential workers’ comp lawyer tries to get your business by promising you loans from his/her law firm in exchange for giving them your business.
