Review Wayne Dempsey

About Me

My firm is a full service law firm that offers creative solutions in litigation and transactional matters.  The focus is primarily estate planning and probate, construction and surety, personal injury, and cultural conservation and historic preservation.  I am admitted to practice in all state courts in Georgia and the following federal courts:  Northern District of Georgia, Middle District of Georgia, Northern District of Florida, and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.  I am an avid photographer when I am away from the office.  I am also a member of the DeKalb County Historic Preservation Commission and a board member of the Dunwoody Preservation Trust.
