Travis Hargrove graduated Magna Cum Laude from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics in 2001. He graduated from the Walter F.

Travis also obtained a Certificate in Advanced Legal Writing.

Travis is licensed in the State and Superior Courts of Georgia, the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, all Alabama State and Federal Courts, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. He was honored on the “Georgia Rising Stars” list in Atlanta Magazine/Law and Politics in 2015, 2014, and 2013, voted by his peers as one of Georgia’s best Civil Litigation Young Lawyers. Recently, Travis was rated as a Top-Rated Business Litigation Attorney by SuperLawyers (recognizing the top 5 percent of lawyers in Georgia).

Travis began his legal career in private practice in Atlanta with the firm of King & Spalding, LLP. He then made the decision to return to his hometown of Columbus, Georgia where he joined the firm of Page, Scrantom, Sprouse, Tucker & Ford, P.C. and where he practiced for 10 years (six as a Partner) before joining The Finley Firm. During his nearly 20 years in private practice, Travis has handled cases throughout the state and federal courts in Georgia and Alabama, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in Business Disputes, Contractual Disputes, Landlord/Tenant Disputes and Evictions, Construction Litigation, Copyright and Trademark Litigation, Banking Litigation, Workouts and Foreclosures. He has tried numerous cases to verdict in Bench Trials, Jury Trials, and Arbitrations and has obtained Summary Adjudication in his clients’ favor in a multitude of cases.

Notably, Travis was lead counsel in one of the last federal jury trials in Alabama before the COVID-19 pandemic where he obtained a $1.7 million verdict for a business that had been defrauded.

Travis is a member of and serves on the advisory board of Church on the Trail in Columbus, Georgia, where he is an Elder.  He is the Chairman of the Board of Auburn Christian Fellowship, a Campus Ministry at Auburn University.  Travis and his wife Trisha have three daughters.
