Halsey Knapp regularly advises clients on crisis management and best practices with particular emphasis on business arrangements, limited liability entity operating agreements, real estate transactions, graceful employment departures, and more antagonistic, high stakes, “bet the company” business divorces and litigation. Consequently, Halsey frequently is asked to handle relationship issues with clients, suppliers, competitors, owners, operators and the occasional government prosecutor or regulator. Although Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business (“Chambers”) cited Halsey for being a “talented trial lawyer noted for being tenacious”, Halsey also brings a “solution-oriented”approach to disputes. Halsey brings judgment and wisdom to any negotiating table. He is also a trained and registered neutral and serves on the Board of the Atlanta Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section.

Greater Atlanta Democratic Women, is an official Democratic Women’s organization serving the greater Atlanta area. Voters who live in Fulton County and any of the bordering counties of Fulton are eligible for membership. GADW was organized by long-time Democrat Mindy Boggs. On August 26, 2019 GADW was chartered by the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women(GFDW) and has since grown to become a large, and active Federation chapter. The 501 c 4 organization’s by-laws are approved by the State Federation which is under the National Federation of Democratic Women. Since the state and national Federation organizations are chartered by our national Democratic Party, there are permanent seats on both the state & national Democratic Committees reserved for the leadership of these organizations- which assures these coveted designated voting seats will always be occupied by WOMEN.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are meeting virtually until further notice, generally on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. However, since we face an intense election season, we anticipate hosting and sharing many events - please check the website and/or Facebook page frequently! All members will also receive periodic email updates.
