About Ginny
Q&A
  • Which courts or agencies do you most often appear before on behalf of your clients?

    I most commonly practice in the Alabama federal district court because, often, the mortgage and financial services litigation I manage involves regulatory statutes such as the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Truth in Lending Act, and others.

  • What types of clients do you represent?
  • What do you see on the horizon in your area of practice?
