Linda is the founder of the firm and specializes in drafting contracts in plain English and using a collaborative approach to helping clients make the business decisions that suit their level of risk tolerance. Her well-written,
plain English contracts give her clients
peace of mind knowing that potential disputes and misunderstandings have been minimized because both sides understand clearly the terms of the agreement they are signing.
After spending 17 years in the corporate world, Linda left her high-paying job as an Assistant Vice President in Risk Management Technologies at Marsh, LLC., a global insurance brokerage firm (now
Marsh ClearSight), to attend law school. Three challenging and enjoyable (truly!) years later she graduated
cum laude from
Georgia State University College of Law.
Linda is a natural project manager
and has led many projects throughout her career including taking over a technology implementation project for a multi-million dollar client who was very unhappy because every project deadline had been missed the previous 1.5 years. Linda managed multiple resources to meet the new deadline and retain the client.
In addition to studying how to draft legally-enforceable contracts in plain English, Linda has studied the Drivers Model strategic planning
process that helps businesses bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be.
As a certified coach
with over 300 hours of training and study, Linda is combining her coaching skills with her project management abilities, her strategic planning knowledge, and her legal expertise to create the
Exit Strategy Success SystemTM, a program that helps service company owners prepare to sell their company for top dollar and then complete the sale so they can move onto their next dream.
Linda serves on the Advisory Board of
ProWIN, a non-profit organization of influential businesswomen in Atlanta. Prior to the Advisory Board, she served on ProWIN's Board of Directors
for 6 years and as its President for one of those years. One of the highlights of her year as President was facilitating strategic planning exercises at the annual Board Retreat, the results of which are still being used by the organization today. Linda enjoys teaching and public speaking
and has been a guest speaker for various business groups in the Atlanta area. For several years she taught the "Legal Issues for Small Businesses" course offered by the
Kennesaw State University Small Business Development Center and continues to teach for the KSU SBDC as needed. To learn more about her speaking, visit her
Growing up in California, Linda received a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of California at Berkeley. She lived in California until her employer at the time moved her to Chicago in 1996 and then to its global headquarters in Atlanta in 1998. She now lives in East Cobb where she enjoys taking yoga classes and other personal and spiritual development courses. She also enjoys reading and domestic and international travel. One of her favorite trips was a river cruise on the Danube from Budapest, Hungary to Passau, Germany. Most of her trips these days are back to California to visit her elderly parents and other family and friends.
