Georgia Lord – Secretary
Georgia was born and raised in Atlanta. She graduated in the top ten percent of her class at the Emory University College of Law in 1984. In the years since, her practice has included hard-fought civil rights litigation, extensive service inside Fulton County’s Family Court, and legal representation of persons with family law disputes. During her years as a Family Court staff member, Georgia witnessed cases in which one of the parties “won” their case, but did so at the expense of draining their accumulated assets to pay for the litigation – and inflicting lots of emotional wounds upon themselves and their children. These observations have prompted her to offer collaborative practice services to her clients and promote public awareness of collaborative practice.
