I have reactivated my Florida, Georgia and Federal law practice (July 2009) after serving five years as a full time pastor with the United Methodist Church in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. My law practice experience since 1984 includes civil and criminal litigation - mediation - immigration - workers compensation - bankruptcy - estate planning - family law - residential real estate closings and landlord management. My wife and I have returned to our homes in Midtown Atlanta and Dahlonega. Georgia.
I look forward to collaborating with you and any of your attorney friends who may or may not practice in the greater Atlanta area. You google me as "Ronald Ehlbert Smith."
