I am tax attorney and business advisor James G. “Jim” Killough, serving the small business community in Atlanta and surrounding metropolitan area, as well as the Golden Isles on the Georgia coast. I have been helping individuals and multi-state small business owners find practical, cost-effective solutions to legal problems for more than 49 years.

I provide legal counsel, litigation and mediation services. For more than 30 years, I served as a business dispute arbitrator. Currently, I serve as an arbitrator for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”).  FINRA is not part of the government but an independent, not-for-profit organization authorized by Congress to protect America’s investors, providing a neutral, alternative dispute resolution forum for the public and the industry.

When you have a legal problem or challenge, it can be more than frustrating to wait for days for a lawyer to return your call-it can add risk to an already precarious situation. That’s not the way I treat my clients. If you have a problem, I will accommodate same-day meetings at my office, your office, your home or another convenient location.

Few Atlanta business attorneys or probate lawyers can say the same. I can, because I am selective about the clients I accept and I place a high priority on providing quality legal service. Contact my office to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss how I can help you achieve your small business goals, help with estate planning or probate matters, or resolve business and tax disputes.
