Jeanne received a Bachelor of Arts degree at Berry College in 1998, with a major in Psychology. She then attended the University of Georgia School of Law, where she received her Juris Doctorate degree in 2001. While attending law school, Jeanne interned with the Capital Assistance Project, working on appeals in cases where the death penalty had been imposed, and with the Piedmont Circuit District Attorney’s Office, prosecuting cases in both Barrow and Jackson Counties. She passed the bar exam and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 2001.
The first four years of Jeanne’s career were spent in tax, accounting and estate related work. She worked intimately with small businesses to complete daily and monthly accounting work, including everything from paying bills, payroll and payroll taxes for clients, to compiling monthly financial statements. She also worked on tax preparation for many Sole Proprietors, S Corporations and C Corporations.
In 2005, Jeanne entered the world of public service to work as an Assistant District Attorney for the Paulding Judicial Circuit. During her time as an ADA, Jeanne prosecuted a wide variety of cases, ranging from Driving Under the Influence, to Burglary and Aggravated Assault. As a prosecutor, she has handled all aspects of criminal cases, from bond and preliminary hearings, through plea negotiations and trial, including successful argument before the Georgia Court of Appeals. The thousands of cases that she prosecuted helped Jeanne hone her litigation skills.
Jeanne now uses her years of experience in three primary areas: Family Law, Elder Law and Personal Injury. Her expertise as a litigator helps her provide successful representation to all her clients.
