Chambers and Aholt Relocate to Decatur

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

New offices in One Town Center

chambers-aholt-0987

Attorneys Doug Aholt and Bo Chambers are proud to announce the relocation of their firm, Chambers and Aholt LLC, to downtown Decatur. Their new offices are in the One Decatur Town Center building at 150 E. Ponce de Leon Ave. near the historic downtown square.

After many years in an office tower on Peachtree St., the partners are excited about the new location that allows them to connect with a vibrant local business district, contribute to the surrounding community, and provide convenient services to their clients, with ample on-site parking and a nearby MARTA station.

“The move represents a homecoming for Bo and me,” says Doug Aholt. “The old DeKalb County Courthouse, which is located on the square across from us, is where Bo honed his trial skills to become one of the preeminent trial lawyers of the State Bar. I have lived in Decatur since 1989. By working closer to where we live and volunteer, we can better serve our community and our clients.”

The firm specializes in personal injury law, representing clients all over metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia.

Doug currently serves as president of the Trial Lawyers Section of the DeKalb Bar Association and is board chair of the Decatur Arts Alliance, both organizations headquartered in Decatur.

State Bar Seeks Volunteers for Professionalism Project

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

The Professionalism Committee of the State Bar of Georgia seeks lawyers and judges to volunteer for an August project. Participants will visit their alma maters, or any of the schools in Georgia, and help give back part of what the profession has given by dedicating a half-day of time.

Please consider participating in this project and encourage your colleagues to volunteer as well.

You will be paired with a co-leader and will lead students in a discussion of hypothetical professionalism and ethics issues. Minimal preparation is necessary for the leaders. Review the provided hypos, which include annotations and suggested questions, and arrive at the school 20 minutes prior to the program. Pair up with a friend or classmate to co-lead a group.
