Published in 2017 Georgia Super Lawyers magazine

BEST PLACE TO TAKE A CLIENT  –  Head to Perch, a rooftop bar, for a cocktail, then go downstairs for an excellent meal.

FAVORITE WATERING HOLE  –  Green Truck Pub. The burgers are the best!

BEST VIEW  –  River Street and the skyline of Savannah as seen from the Westin Hotel on Hutchinson Island.

FAVORITE BUILDING​​​​​​​  –  The historic Armstrong House situated just north of Forsyth Park, which was built as a private residence in 1919. You have to see it to believe it.

UGLIEST BUILDING​​​​​​​  –  Without a doubt, the federal complex. The exterior appears to be made from bath tiles.

BEST RESTAURANT​​​​​​​  –  The Olde Pink House, which is known for its modern Southern fare. Ask to be seated in the original building.

WEEKEND GETAWAY​​​​​​​  –  Little St. Simons Island, a small private island off the Georgia coast.

FAVORITE HISTORICAL FACT​​​​​​​  –  In his March to the Sea, Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman spared the city of Savannah and presented it to President Lincoln as a Christmas gift.

FAVORITE HISTORICAL SITE​​​​​​​  –  Fort Pulaski, which was designed and constructed with the assistance of a young Robert E. Lee.

FAVORITE CITY EVENT​​​​​​​  –  Definitely St. Patrick’s Day, when all the fountains spray green water, and hundreds of thousands come to watch the third-largest parade in the nation.

FAVORITE HISTORICAL RESIDENT​​​​​​​  –  Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts. Yes, I was a Girl Scout. Our troop in Macon made a trip to Savannah to visit her home.

FAVORITE BREAKFAST SPOT​​​​​​​  –  J. Christopher’s. Try the grits!

FAVORITE PARK​​​​​​​  –  Forsyth Park downtown, where one can find tranquility, play tennis or join a pickup game of soccer.

FAVORITE LUNCH SPOT​​​​​​​  –  Skyler’s in the basement of a historic inn on Bay Street. The flounder and the shrimp are the best!

FAVORITE MOVIE THEATER​​​​​​​  –  The Lucas. It is worth a visit just to see the beautiful restoration of the theater.

BEST PLACE FOR PEOPLE WATCHING​​​​​​​  –  River Street. And you can also see enormous ocean container vessels up close and personal.

FAVORITE LOCAL SHOP​​​​​​​  –  Savannah Bee Company. Who knew so many items are better made with honey?

MOST HEARTBREAKING CITY SPORTS MOMENT​​​​​​​  –  When the Savannah Sand Gnats baseball team, a South Atlantic League team, left town in 2015.

PLACE TO TAKE OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS​​​​​​​  –  Definitely stroll Savannah’s beautiful squares, and top off the walk with a trolley tour to soak up Savannah’s history.

FAVORITE LESSER-KNOWN TOURIST ATTRACTION​​​​​​​  –  The Pin Point Heritage Museum. Justice Clarence Thomas was born and raised in Pin Point.

FAVORITE CITY LAW​​​​​​​​​​​​​​  –  Savannah is one of the few cities that allows you to leave the bar with your to-go cup.
