Our Approach

We have earned a reputation for providing high quality and effective legal representation in the Athens area. We earned this by providing our clients with the highest standards of diligence, knowledge, professionalism, and by relentlessly protecting our client’s rights.

Our firm handles many areas of law. This is of great benefit to our clients as many times, a client’s case may cross over into another area of law they did not expect.  The satisfaction we get from helping people continually fuels our passion for helping our clients in Athens. Contact us today to see how we may be able to help you!

Our Story

We opened our law firm in August of 2016 with the original founders, Al Fargione and Samuel Thomas. Charlie McRae was advanced to partner in early 2017 changing the name to “Fargione, Thomas & McRae, LLC.” We felt compelled to put our legal experience as a united force to assist clients in Athens Georgia and all over the State of Georgia.


What about us makes us qualified?

We have over 15 years of combined expereience any many areas of law. This ensures that if and when a client’s case needs an expert opinion in another area of law, an answer is easily received.
  • How we can help you?

    We use our many years of legal expereience to assess your case and ensure your rights are protected and litigation is kept to a minimum.

  • Is the consultation free?

    Yes! We love to have our clients come in and tell us about their case without fear of cost. During the consultation, we will go over your situation thoroughly to ensure that we may be of assistance to you.

  • Will you take my case to trial?

    While we strive to keep legal representation as painless as possible, we understand that sometimes litigation is necessary. When your case needs to be taken to trial, rest assured that we will put forth our aggressive litigation skills to secure your best outcome!
