I have practiced law in Georgia as a solo practitioner for almost 20 years. I focus largely on consumer issues, in particular representing debtors in bankruptcy matters.
Our primary focus is on consumer debtor bankruptcy filings. We represent debtors in both chapters 7 and 13. We also represent clients in matters designed to keep them out of bankruptcy, particularly debt negotiation, garnishments and mortgage modifications.
Cases vary based on the specifics of your facts, therefore the results in any one case cannot be guaranteed to be duplicated in another.

I receive far more joy from helping individuals than I would working in a big corporate environment. As such, I gravitated to consumer issues like bankruptcy, wills, small business incorporations, etc.
Clients should always make an attempt to educate themselves on legal issues before consulting an attorney. As long as clients understand they are hiring me to be their attorney and not their "yes" person, clients' keen understanding of their legal issues can only serve as a benefit.
I offer clients a free 30-minute consultation to discuss their legal issue in full. Often, this encompasses reviewing documents presented by clients, which I am more than glad to do it as long as it pertains to their case.
I generally do not coach clients who wish to represent themselves.
I have been a solo practitioner for 20 years.
As a mother of two sons who both turned out to be lawyers, I have no shortage of legal minds in my family. There is no one experience that I can pinpoint as a turning point in making me become a lawyer. I always had an interest in the law, and it seemed like a natural career path for me.
I am known for my patience and ability to work well with a variety of personality types. My clients also like that I am accessible throughout the business day.Personal interests:
I like watching movies, reading books, and going to museums. I also enjoy traveling. My husband and I have been to over 20 countries.
