I have had several roles in my career as an attorney. I started as a law clerk to a Superior Court Judge (felony and civil matters) in Cobb County, where I was raised. After that stretch, I worked in real estate until I grew bored and became a trial attorney.

Finally.. Excitement.

After several years with Fulton County and the State of Georgia as a senior trial attorney and supervisor, I grew restless with the limitations on my practice and the Indigent Defense system in Georgia. While attending a few regional seminars, and the intensive, three week residential Trial Lawyers College, run...

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare North Atlanta attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
