A great adventure began when I passed the Georgia Bar Examination in 1989, allowing me to work under the guidance of (and with, and against) some of the best legal talent in the nation. What a privilege it is to help people and companies in almost any kind of matter - many of which I could never have envisioned until I had many years of practice behind me. Yet, even in those bad situations and the odds may be perceived as overwhelming, more often than not a good result is obtained through hard work and perserverance. My clients -- each and every one of them -- are important. They know it. They may not hear from me every day, but they know I am here. And I may not hear from them until some trouble or problem has announced itself, but I know in matters they value, they value my time. And I am proud to call most of them friends. And their families, and their friends. And some are great, lifelong friends. That's how I do it.
