Member of the national ElderCare Matters Alliance, Georgia chapter

I am an Atlanta native and partner in the law firm Smiley Bishop & Porter LLP. I received my law degree from Mercer University law school in 1984. For the last 26 years, my firm and I have dedicated our law practice to representing investors whose trust has been abused by dishonest financial advisors, stock brokers, investment advisors and financial planners. We have been fortunate during this time to have successfully represented numerous seniors who have been victimized by unscrupulous investment companies and their employees.

Our firm prides itself on being keenly aware of the unique factors associated with representing seniors. Personally, I have served on the Board of the Elder Law section of the Atlanta Bar Association, am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and a Charter Member of the ElderCare Matters Alliance.  I am also a member of the Public Investors Bar Association.

My law firm is based in Atlanta, Georgia but our practice is national in scope. We have represented investors in numerous venues throughout the Southeast and across the United States. We have successfully represented clients with claims against virtually every major Wall Street firm, including: Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, UBS/PaineWebber, Morgan Stanley/Dean Witter, Wells Fargo Securities/Wachovia Securities, Prudential Securities, Citigroup/Smith Barney, Shearson/Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Credit Suisse, Ameriprise Financial, Morgan Keegan, and LPL Financial, as well as numerous others.
