Quotes

"It was an honor to propose and carry Bill 828, and see it passed into law," Mabra commented. "As lawyers, we need to help Georgia accident and injury victims by allowing them time to research and select counsel without an unscrupulous practitioner knocking on the door."
"They made it OK to talk about money, be smart with money and plan well" Cummings said. She added she sees an increasing desire of clients to "know their spouse not just emotionally but financially."
"This silence creates an ambiguity," Barnes wrote. "Where the language in a criminal statute is ambiguous, it must be construed in favor of the defendant. ...
