I had been practicing law in Cobb County in Metro Atlanta for 13 years when I left the firm I was with to start a new firm and we started on January 1, 1984. I took with me 2 legal assistants and I told them at that time that I wasn't even sure we'd be able to pay them the first month, and they came anyway. And fortunately, we were able to pay them and me a little bit too. And we have never looked back since that time.
My vision when I started this firm was that we would have a law firm based on the big firm concept downtown - that is have specialties in different areas.
At the time that I started the firm, my primary clientele was real estate developers and banks. We came up with a, what we call a wheel concept. And the wheel concept means a developer client, for example, being the hub of that wheel and then those spokes the different legal needs that they would need.
And the feedback I got from my clients is they wanted a place that was a one-stop shop. That they could bring their issues to us so we'd be able to handle them. And of course, I was primarily doing commercial real estate zoning and development at that time. So I needed people who did other specialties. And so I went to Atlanta to recruit attorneys to do those and tax, corporate and litigation.
Over the 13 years I've been practicing my clients had reached the point where they needed those kind of specialties and we didn't have them and they weren't offered here. The idea was that we could offer those specialties in a suburban-location-like Cobb County so people will not go downtown Atlanta to get those services. So that was the initial recruiting I did - recruited a tax attorney, litigators, corporate people and we started to grow out from there.
