About Me

 


Consumer Rights & Construction Litigation Attorney


 


Over the course of my 17+ year legal career, I have acted as legal counsel in hundreds of cases and disputes or various types, ranging from simple breach of contract actions in Small Claims (Magistrate) Court, to multi-party actions in Superior Court to complex Class Actions in Federal Court. Currently (as of 2013) my practice is primarily devoted to Construction/Real Estate law and litigation (e.g. liens, breach of contract and related claims/disputes between businesses as well as consumers) and Consumer Rights/Credit litigation (e.g. Truth in Lending Act [TILA], Fair Credit Reporting/Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Acts [FCRA/FACTA], Fair Debt Collection Practices Act [FDCPA], Fair Credit Billing Act [FCBA], Consumer Leasing Act [Regulation Z], Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act [RESPA], Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act [HOEPA], Home Affordable Modification Program [HAMP], Making Homes Affordable Program [MHA], Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act ["Dodd-Frank"], Telephone Consumers Protection Act [TCPA], Junk Fax Prevention Act [JFPA] and related Federal Consumer Protection laws as well as those applicable in the State of Georgia.



Before starting my own firm, I practiced as a Litigation Associate at one of the nation's largest firms, Epstein, Becker & Green, representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants in complex commercial disputes. Prior to that, I was a Litigation Associate with one of Atlanta's oldest law firms, Greer, Klosik & Daugherty (GKD)[its name has since expanded], where I began my legal career. At GKD I handled primarily Insurance Defense matters, but I was also involved in a handful of plaintiff's personal injury cases. It was there that I developed the core foundation of my civil litigation experience; during the first few years of practice, I took or defended scores of depositions and was fortunate enough to have my first opportunity to act as lead counsel in a number of jury trials throughout the state.
 
On a non-professional level, I devote a significant portion of my free time to road bicycling, and over the last eight years I have become an avid recreational/competitive cyclist and occasionally participate in cycling races throughout the state. I hold a Category 4/5 USCA Road Cycling License and as of 2008 was ranked 67th in the state in my age group. I am a Member of both CycleWorks [a/k/a North Ga. Cycling Association] and Dunwoody Cycling and frequently attend various Group Rides around the state.



I am also an avid tennis player [USTA 4.0], alpine skier, backpacker [I have hiked all sections of the GA AT, the Benton MacKaye Trail and many other trails in the SE] and competitive pool (billiards) player, and have won numerous tournaments in the latter over the years. I own two Pugs - my only "children" - and am a vocal proponent of Animal Rights and Environmental/Wilderness Protection [to name just a few], sometimes becoming involved with various causes related thereto. I am or have been a Member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA), Atlanta Lawyers Club, the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA), ACLU, Dunwoody North Civic Assoc., Open Dekalb, Inc.; F.O.R. Dekalb County, Inc., Rails to Trails, P.A.T.H., USA Cycling, Sierra Club and the Appalachian Trial Conservatory.
