Attorney Brian Cahn


Brian Cahn is a native of Cartersville, having graduated from Cartersville High School. He completed his college education at the University of Georgia in 1991, earning a degree in business administration.  After graduation, Brian moved to Birmingham, Alabama, where he attended law school and earned his law degree from Samford University, Cumberland School of Law, in 1994. With his law degree, law license, and a strong desire to return to start his career in his home town of Cartersville, Georgia, he was invited to join a local law firm to assist local clients in need of bankruptcy advice. Since then, over the past 26-years, Brian has dedicated his entire practice to helping clients obtain affordable financial relief through creative and case-specific plans. With empathy and compassion, Brian has helped thousands of satisfied clients obtain financial relief through cases under Chapters 7 and 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  In addition, he has counseled many clients - individuals and businesses - to a fresh start by reorganizing under Chapter 11. Never wanting to recommend bankruptcy as the first or only option, Brian has helped countless clients avoid bankruptcy by spearheading debt settlement plans, and debt-related litigation defense, along with FDCPA and FCRA litigation, and foreclosure defense.

While Brian’s career has revolved around finding legal avenues to help clients manage debt, his life in general revolves around his wife, Angie, and their two children, Elliana and Eric. Whenever UGA football, or golf or fishing can be added to the mix of life, then that’s considered a bonus.


Today, the firm has offices in Dallas, Cartersville, Calhoun, and Dalton, enabling Mr. Cahn and his partners to serve anyone looking for a bankruptcy lawyer in northwest Georgia. Mr. Cahn’s continuous presence in the local legal community has earned him a good working relationship with judges and other attorneys in the area. He understands their values and preferences, which is a benefit to his clients. He also assists clients with debt settlement, rebuilding credit, and foreclosure defense. Creditor harassment is often an immediate concern for those with financial difficulties, and he knows how to stop the calls and collection notices that torment his clients.

I cannot say enough about the law firm of Perrotta, Cahn and Associates, specifically my attorney, Mr. Brian Cahn. I was referred to Brian Cahn through a close friend who used his services earlier.Unfortunately, I was experiencing severe financial difficulty, and I needed to inquire about the possibility of declaring bankruptcy. I was already upset and embarrassed that I was in this situation. However, upon meeting Brian, and explaining my situation to him, I began to feel comfortable and reassured. Brian explained that he would work hard to provide the best outcome for me. He is also an excellent strategist.Brian was always readily available whenever I had questions or concerns. He is a consummate professional who I felt was extremely dedicated to my case. The services provided to me by Brian Cahn have been invaluable. I also felt his prices were reasonable and fair. The office staff was also very professional and courteous. Should anyone I know need the services of an attorney, without hesitation, I will always highly recommend Mr. Brian Cahn, of Perrotta, Cahn & Associates."

At the darkest time of our lives a very good friend recommended Brian Cahn to help us. We were scared, unsure of how to proceed and unfamiliar with the process. Brian treated us with respect, led us each step of the way and answered all of questions and concerns. He stood beside us and for us in a way that we will never forget. He represented us with integrity and consideration. To say that we highly recommend him is an understatement. We recommend only him and it is our privilege to do so."
