About Harriet

Learn Harriet’s areas of practice.

For 25 years, I have dedicated my practice to helping  all size companies establish good credit policies and collect bad debt.  I have been a speaker on credit applications, credit policies and guarantees and collection litigation subjects at seminars for The Creditor's Rights Section of the The State Bar of Georgia, National Association of Credit Managers, Atlanta Construction Credit Group and Apartment Vendors Association.

My associate attorneys in our business division are counsel for other business litigation in state and federal courts.  While most of our work is in Georgia, we do work in other states on a case by case basis.  

My membership with Commercial Law League and International Association of Commercial Collectors gives are very helpful in finding attorneys in most states and countries to handle my client's matters outside of Georgia.

I currently serve as Co-chair of The Creditor's Rights Section of The State Bar of Georgia and organize two annual seminars each year that are attended by about 150 to 200 participants. I have been co-chairing for over 8 years.  I am President of The Apartment Vendors Association and conduct monthly meetings.  I am past Southern Region chairperson of The Commercial Law League of America and have been a member for ten (10) years.

I have two children who also are active in our law firm.  I live in Alpharetta, Georgia and am a native Atlantan.

Great Lawyer
Harriet possesses the integrity every lawyer should have. She is very knowledgeable in her field and offered the best legal advice for my collections case which has been extended for far too long. She was one of the few to offer legal guidance for my case which was considered "too small" and kept being overlooked. I highly recommend Harriet to anyone and will be contacting her in the future if need be.

Great Lawyer
Harriet and her staff have been very helpful to me and my company in collecting hard to collect invoices. She handled all the legal paper work and kept me informed of any changes in the accounts. All my questions and calls were always answered in a timely matter, by Harriet or a staff member. I would recommend her services and her staff for any legal needs I would have.

Harriet has handled all of our legal issues in the state of Georgia for over 25 years. I have worked closely with her for 20 of those years. Harriet is very involved in one of the credit associations that we both belong to and has been a huge help to all of its members.

The Collectionator!
Harriet combines an extensive, experienced knowledge of our industry and the players in front and behind the scenes with a solid, no nonsense focus on the task at hand while still maintaining civility and cordiality during the process. I have tried several other methods but, none as effective as Harriet. She has improved our receivables 100%
