  • Robert Keith Prater

    I have known Scott since the two of us were young lawyers here in Newnan. I refer all felony calls to him. He is diligent, creative and gets results for the people I have referred to him. He is well respected in our law enforcement community and in both the District Attorneys Office and the Solicitors Office for professional and thorough zealous advocacy for his clients.
