Russell Pope, Sr.

I grew up in the Covington, Georgia area graduating from high school in 1980. I went to college for a year and a half until I ran out of money. I took several years off and worked trying to save money to return to school. I applied and was accepted to Mercer University in Macon, Georgia in 1987 and was planning to return in August of that year when I found out we were going to be parents. I decided to continue with school and work as much as possible to support our family. We lived very frugally during this time. I graduated college in 1990 and entered law school at Mercer's Walter F. George School of Law and graduated in 1993.

I began practicing law in June of that year after passing the bar and being notified of my results on May 22, 1993 (the same day as my graduation ceremony from school). I went into partnership with a classmate and continued in that until 2001 when we parted ways. I have been a sole practitioner since that time.
