Highlights from This Week
Amid the seemingly constant negativity of the times, I wanted to share one piece of good news: The Gentry Law Firm is moving! Our firm is growing and relocating to an even more convenient location just down the street and closer to historic Marietta Square. While we're anticipating a move-in date in late May, with the coronavirus, nothing is certain. That said, we promise to keep you updated on our progress, and we'll send you an invitation to an open house as soon as it's safe to mingle again!

As always, you can reach our office at (770) 425-5573 or by visiting our website at gentrylawfirmgeorgia.com . Head to our Facebook , YouTube , Twitter , Instagram , and LinkedIn accounts to stay on top of how we're serving you and our community during this time, and above all, stay healthy.
We're Moving!
We're headed to a new location! In the near future, our team will be moving to a new location even closer to the county courthouse. You can find our new address below:

Gentry Law Firm LLC
254 Roswell St.
Marietta, GA 30060

For now, while most of our staff is working remotely, we're still open at our current location Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and over the phone at (770) 425-5573.

Georgia Legal Food Frenzy
Under normal circumstances, thousands in our community regularly go hungry. Due to the impact of the coronavirus over the past few weeks, however, that number has skyrocketed. I highly encourage those who are able to participate in the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy, which is raising money for the Atlanta Community Food Bank to distribute to food banks across north Georgia. Every dollar you donate provides four meals for folks in need.

Donate through the Cobb County Bar Association's team here.
Meet the Team
While many of you may know me and my staff well, we have a few more recent additions to our team. Until we can introduce them to you in person, I hope this virtual introduction will help you get to know our team a little better!

Get to know my staff and take a look at my video here.

With Chief Justice Harold Melton the only member in the courtroom and the other eight justices sheltering in place across the state, the Georgia Supreme Court held its first “virtual” court session on Monday.The court heard appeals of two murder convictions — one from Gwinnett County, another from Chatham County — in oral arguments that went off without a hitch.“I would much rather to be before the highest court in our state when appearing for oral argument,” said Atlanta criminal defense attorney Brian Steel, who argued the first case. “But under these horrible circumstances, I thought it went extremely well. I saw everybody. I heard everybody. It went just fine.”
