No law firm, regardless of its size, has a monopoly on top-notch attorneys. “Bigger” does not mean “better,” especially when the Client’s case or matter does not require an army of attorneys. The prudent Client understands that the attorney-Client relationship ultimately boils down to people. It is the individual, not the entity, who gives unconditional loyalty to the Client; who provides personal accountability to the Client; and who brings passion to the Client’s cause.


Technology & Internet Law

The Firm is best-known for its technology & Internet law practice. Firm founder Pete Wellborn is often hailed as the most well-known Internet lawyer in the country. Unlike many “Johnny-come-lately’s” professing some expertise or experience in this area, Wellborn has had a primary practice focus on Internet law and related technologies since 1996, when he began representing, among other Internet Clients, a relatively small (at the time) up-and-coming ISP in California: EarthLink. The Firm’s technology-related legal victories have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, in Boardwatch magazine, in the book “Spam Kings,” on CNN, and in/on a variety of other newspapers, periodicals, television stations, and radio stations across the nation. In 2004, Wellborn was interviewed by Dan Rather for a 60 Minutes II segment highlighting his anti-spam efforts. The Firm’s technology/Internet law practice includes the representation of ISPs, software developers, commercial e-mail marketers, graphic design companies, and a variety of other members of the technology community. This area of the law is a natural fit for Wellborn who, along with colleague Kelly Wallace, has a technology–related degree from Georgia Tech and has taught Internet Law there as an adjunct instructor.

The skilled attorney knows when to use the velvet glove and when to use the iron fist.
