    After law school, Gary completed a Federal Court Clerkship with the Honorable Virgil T. Pittman with the United States District Court in Mobile, Alabama.  Since 2011, Gary has been a member of the Executive Committee of the Labor and Employment section of the State Bar of Georgia.  When he is not writing a brief or arguing a case, Gary is riding his road bike through the mountains, running a marathon, or enjoying the beach.
