About me

After graduating from Central Gwinnett High School in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Jordan was determined to receive a quality education, so that he could return and serve the community where he grew up. He earned his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University. He was also fortunate enough to meet his wife, while there, and even more fortunate to convince her to move with him to Georgia, so that he could attend law school at Georgia State University's College of Law. In addition to being widely regarded as one of the best public law schools in the country, GSU provided Jordan with a number of excellent opportunities, including working with some of the leading academics in their areas of expertise. Jordan Alford is especially grateful to Professors Mary Radford, Julian Juergensmeyer, and Ryan Rowberry, for their tutelage and continued mentorship.


 


While in law school, Jordan was able to work at a number of different law firms, whose areas of specialty ranged from criminal law to real estate. He was likewise privileged to serve as an Intern in the Superior Court of Fulton County with Judge John Goger. During his time with Judge Goger, Jordan was able to work on cases that ranged in subject matter from medical malpractice to derivatives litigation. These diverse set of experiences impressed upon Jordan two important things: 1) There is enough diversity in the law to find something you love doing; and 2) Don't practice in an area of law you don't love, because being a good lawyer requires nothing less than 100 percent commitment to your clients and your craft.


 


Jordan has a passion for his selected areas of expertise. In addition to his private practice he acts as a volunteer Editor of The Mortmain, a quarterly publication produced by the Estate and Probate section of the Atlanta Bar Association. He also serves the local Probate Courts of North Metro Atlanta by acting as Guardian Ad Litem or as an appointed attorney in cases dealing with incapacity of the elderly, representing minors in probate administration, and in mental health commitment cases.
