Previously in his legal career he enjoyed a very diverse practice, ranging from representing individuals in small towns to representing major corporations in national litigation, including several years practicing as a white collar defense attorney in New York. Noteworthy representations include:

Mr. Susong was raised on a farm in Rockdale County. He received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Washington & Lee University; he graduated from law school at the University of Virginia where he was an editor of the Virginia Tax Review. Early in his career he practiced in North Carolina, and then moved for several years to Manhattan. He returned home to Georgia in 2004. He’s passed three bar exams and isn’t moving again! Mr. Susong is married to the former Kate MacKenzie, and they have two children, Jack and India. He is active in his church, and his hobbies include skiing, film, travel and college football.

He recently returned from a sabbatical in Chicago, where he earned a master’s degree in philosophy and theology from the University of Chicago. His thesis applied the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein to the question of “justification” in Christian theology.
