About me

Before entering the practice of law, I was a teacher and coach, teaching health, physical education, history, and science.  I primarily coached basketball and football, but also spent time coaching volleyball, baseball, soccer, track and field, and cross-country.  In 2009 I coached a nine year old football team in Suwanee, Georgia and in 2010 coached a fourteen year old basketball team in Lawrenceville, Georgia. I was also head coach of an eleven year old football team in Suwanee, Georgia in 2011.


I hold a black belt teaching certificate in the art of Chinese Boxing and practice Tai-Chi, Wing-Chun and other arts of self-defense and self-actualization.  I also play in a weekly basketball league, play beach volleyball in the summertime, and enjoy a variety of other activities, including swing dancing, hiking, mountain biking, waterskiing, and snowskiing.  I attend a community Christian church and believe that most of the problems of mankind ultimately have a spiritual root cause and need a spiritual solution. 


My first two years out of law school were spent working for a small firm that handled personal injury, family law, business law, and general practice and trial.  For the next eight years I worked for larger firms as a real estate closing attorney and a foreclosure attorney. 


In 2007, I opened my own law firm, with a goal of helping people with their everyday problems.  Since that time, I have handled hundreds of cases in the Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta, and North Georgia courts encompassing several areas in the practice of law, with a focus on criminal defense and personal injury.

    Wallace Berry is a committed advocate for his clients. I routinely consult Mr. Berry's expertise on a wide variety of legal matters, and I have always found him to be a thoughtful, intelligent litigator. He cares deeply for his clients and their families, and will often go the extra mile to assist when other attorneys would not. I highly recommend Mr. Berry to anyone looking for a skilled advocate.
