Thad Woody, an executive partner at Kessler & Solomiany, LLC, has been named the chair of the American Bar Association’s Family Law Section.
Woody moved to Atlanta in 2003 after law school and spent two years clerking for the Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. He came to work at a larger corporate firm, then sought a position in family law to better connect with clients and to assist families in crisis.
“I had a good friend that worked at KS Family Law and I knew the firm was well-regarded and the people there would make good colleagues,” Woody recalled.
Now, nearly 15 years later, he manages a case list of high-profile wealthy executives and well-known celebrities who are navigating their own family crises.
The announcement comes as no surprise to partners Randy Kessler and Marvin Solomiany.
“This is a great honor for our firm and for Georgia to have the Chair of the Family Law Section,” said Kessler.
“Thad is a true mensch. He is a fierce advocate for his clients and for our firm and I am lucky to call him my friend.”
