I am a 1997 graduate of Emory Law School, and started practicing law that same year.  My practice expanded in 2016 when I became a partner at the firm of Cohen Cooper Estep & Allen, LLC; you can go to the firm’s main website here. I represent businesses and individuals in Georgia and Colorado in areas such as:

Cohen Cooper Estep & Allen also provides services in tax disputes, entertainment law, criminal law, personal injury, and more.

You may read my blog that you can read here. The topics vary, including discussions about the growing trend of marijuana legalization.

I have taught a continuing education course for real estate licensees called "Disclose and Advise," covering the real estate agent's duties of disclosure and the pitfalls that come from not complying with that duty. My plan is to expand the continuing education offerings.

My teaching does not stop there. I have been and continue to be part of Emory Law School's Kessler-Eidson Program for Trial Techniques. Emory Law's Trial Techniques is a learn-by-doing program for Emory Law students to learn how to represent a client at a trial. I also have been and plan to continue to be on the faculty at programs put on by NITA (National Institute for Trial Advocacy) to teach and hone the deposition and trial skills of practicing lawyers.

Successfully represented a client in a matter resulting in a reported decision, ICG Communications, Inc. v. Allegiance Telecom, Inc., 211 F.R.D. 610 (N.D. Cal. 2002).
