Warner, Bates, McGough, McGinnis & Portnoy today announced the addition of Janet A. Hardman to the firm.
Ms. Hardman received her undergraduate degree in psychology from Emory University and her law degree from the Georgia State University College of Law. She was named an Atlanta Law School Fellows Program Scholar and received a full-tuition, merit-based scholarship as a result. While at Georgia State, she interned for Superior Court Judge John Goger, Georgia Court of Appeals Judge A. Harris Adams, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
“Janet is an outstanding addition to our growing team,” said C. Wilbur Warner, Jr., a founding partner of Warner, Bates, McGough, McGinnis & Portnoy. “Her past experience, both academic and professional, will be a valuable asset to the firm.”
Her first position after finishing law school was in the chambers of Forsyth County Superior Court Judge Philip C. Smith. During her time there, she worked primarily in family law and assisted in both civil and criminal cases. Before law school, she worked at the American Arbitration Association in Atlanta.
