  • Timothy Minthorn Klob

    Sean Black is an excellent attorney and one to whom I turn when seeking effective legal representation for potential clients in Northeast Georgia. Sean has been ranked as a Georgia Super Lawyer by his peers for several years in a row, which reflects that he is within the top 5% of all Georgia attorneys statewide, and I recommend him without reservation to potential clients seeking assistance in any of his areas of practice.
