He attended the University of Georgia School of Law where he focused his energy on the Moot Court and Mock Trial programs that prepared him for a litigation practice. In addition to being an effective trial advocate, Alan emphasizes the importance of mediation and negotiation in his family law, custody, and alimony practice and became a Certified Mediator in 2008.
Although a 15-year veteran of his legal practice, Alan also has the unique experience of being ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church in 2010 and pastoring a congregation in Colorado until 2017. There, he served as a counselor and advocate for people, being present with them in times of marital and family difficulties. He is passionate about meeting people where they are, supporting them in their times of great distress, and helping them to work through those difficulties toward a better future.
Alan grew up in Jasper, Georgia and attended college at Oglethorpe University, where he met his bride-to-be Teri. After finishing law school at UGA, he practiced in the Marietta area until going to seminary at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur. When Alan is not in the office, you can find him on the softball field with his youngest daughter, at the basketball gym with his son, walking the family’s two dogs with his oldest daughter, or hiking with his wife Teri.
