+ Pandora Palmer PANDORA E. PALMER, P.C.
Billy Joel once said, “If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time.” These are words that Pandora Palmer lives by, and when she realized in high school she wanted to be an attorney, she pursued that goal, eventually becoming admitted to the Georgia bar in 1994 and subsequently the Hawaii bar in 2001. She grew up in Fayetteville and graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. degree in Criminal Justice. She then attended Georgia State University College of Law where she received her J.D. degree in 1994. Pandora recently opened her own law practice, Pandora E. Palmer, P.C. in October of last year and was previously a partner with the law firm of Smith, Welch, Webb, & White, LLC. With her own practice, she has been able to focus on the areas of law that she enjoys the most, which are: family law (all aspects, including divorce, custody cases, child support issues and adop-

tions) as well as criminal law, juvenile law, and personal injury. She and her staff (Amanda Wallace, paralegal; Joye Moore, office manager, and Beth Striplin, administrative assistant) are dedicated to helping people who are going through a difficult time in their lives and who need not only a lawyer, but someone who has compassion and understanding for the issues they are dealing with. She and her staff love working in Henry County and being involved in the local community and helping it grow. Currently, Pandora serves as Vice President on the Board of Directors for the Henry County Haven House, which provides assistance to victims of domestic violence. This is a cause very close to Pandora’s heart, as a friend of hers from law school was murdered by her husband as a result of domestic violence. Pandora is also involved with the Henry County Kiwanis, the Henry County Bar Association, the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers,
Southern Regional Hospital and the Atlanta Lawyers Club. She recently co-authored the book, Divorce Proceedings in Georgia, What You Need to Know, which was published in May last year and is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble’s websites. She is also currently working on a suspense novel which she hopes to have completed by the end of the year. Her office is conveniently located within walking distance of the courthouse in McDonough and should you ever find yourself in need of her services, she will work diligently and compassionately to obtain the results you need.
