Of Counsel
Atlanta, Georgia

Over twenty-five years of experience in the practice of law consisting primarily of private practice (medium and small-firm practice) but also including government service (staff attorney and attorney manager at multiple levels).The practice has been quite varied in terms of both legal work and clients, including a broad range of general corporate work, small business work, mergers and acquisitions work, commercial transactions, commercial real estate transactions, leasing, regulatory work and other areas. This practice, which has included work with local counsel in other states, has engendered a sensitivity to client objectives, needs and modes of operation; honed organization, attention to detail and persistence; and yielded a valuable resource of years of learning and experience. Resides in Metropolitan Atlanta Georgia.
