About me

I'm a Georgia native and have served the citizens of Georgia for the past 30 years while serving in the military, the Department of Community Health, and now as an attorney.

My wonderful wife of 15 years is a legal assistant and nurse consultant in my law firm.  I have 3 wonderful children (20, 9, and 7).   

It is my goal to create long term relationships with my clients.  I want to be available to you even after I have handled your matter; as a legal knowledge source; as a referral source to other attorneys and professionals; and to assist your family and friends with their legal needs.

Please contact the Chronister Law Firm with your legal concern.
