Bill Gentry was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating as the class valedictorian from North Fulton High School in 1977.

In 1986, Bill Gentry began working as an attorney for the Atlanta law firm of Webb & Daniel, where he refined his legal skills, working on a variety of large and small legal matters, ranging from complex business litigation involving multimillion dollar securities fraud, antitrust, and corporate opportunity cases to domestic matters and personal injury defense.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
