  • William C. Head

    Sandy and I met when she was a Cobb prosecutor. I have followed her career path since those days, and she has built quite a reputation for being a zealous advocate for her clients and a tenacious negotiator. I have openly told her that I want to see her as a Judge one day, because she has such a diverse background and good barometer of what is right and what is wrong. Hire her with confidence.
