Founder – UBERCOUNSEL: The Trusted Family-Care Attorney-Counselor
Prior to law school Paul’s corporate roles include being a construction superintendent with Ryland Homes and a forensic engineer with Georgia Pacific. During law school he clerked for and joined an intellectual property boutique, also becoming a patent attorney, that was soon acquired by Kilpatrick Stockton. At Kilpatrick and later at his first firm, he built a successful intellectual property prosecution and litigation track record. Paul initiated, co-founded and was the managing member of a successful IP boutique and then later the director of another. After successfully serving as the CEO of a large human services agency, he most recently launched his second firm Ubercounsel and received an appointment at Mercer University, where he is presently under contract to write a book on economics.
In addition to being licensed in GA and the 11th Circuit, a registered patent attorney, a Henning trained mediator and arbitrator, a Martindale Hubbell Distinguished attorney, and Georgia Trend Legal Elite, in 2014 he earned his Master of Divinity with a concentration in pastoral care and counseling. An active leader of the State Bar of Georgia’s Attorney Wellness and Lawyer Assistance Program committees, he offers solutions to the stresses of professional life for the benefit of as many as possible.
What’s Paul back story, and particularly why does he have a passion for family care, pastoral counseling, and professional development? The son of an immigrant Hispanic mother and federally convicted father, he understands cultural challenges. Later, placed in foster care as were all his siblings, he knows what ‘family in distress’ feels like. From a very early age he has the lived experience of the relentless stresses, anxieties, and fears that push so many of us to irreconcilable despair. Turning inwardly as a young adult to develop the skills to recover, redirect, and wildly prosper after a brutal beginning, he is an attorney-counselor who is authentically and creditably a friend.
Whether you engage Paul as your attorney, your mediator, your pastoral counselor, or your professional development coach, or any combination of these, he brings the entirety of his many skill sets and talents to expertly serve you and your needs.

"While having a special bias to my brother Paul, I would sincerely recommend him to families or struggling adults and children. Paul has the first-hand experience of working through being a foster child and began this path by nurturing and guiding his siblings to success. You will find his public speaking entertaining, thought-provoking and his message easy to understand. I can testify to the people I have seen him help who have grown spiritually, become achievers and never looked back - and back is not the direction he will lead or guide you. " - Craig Knowlton, Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.)
"I have known Paul for quite some time now and over the years he has proven to be not only an extremely gifted lawyer but a good friend as well. He is a man of unsurpassed integrity, strong moral values and convictions all with a very level headed and even-keeled disposition. There have been two occasions where he has offered to assist on legal issues and both times he was very successful in securing positive outcomes for me. He has always been upfront, honest and has a knack for delivering the message with both poise and compassion, regardless of how difficult that message might be to hear. Paul also has very strong ties to his family and friends, he is always ready and willing to help in any way he can, or at the very least, provide direction and guidance to where you can find what you are best suited for your needs. If you ever have an opportunity to work with or get to know Paul, do not pass it up, if you do, you will be missing out for certain! " - Greg B., Operations Manager, Realty Trust Group.
