Last night, Hartman Simons attorneys, staff and friends gathered at Ormsby's on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta to pay tribute to retired partner Charles "Buzz" Wood. Many good stories and laughs were shared as colleagues movingly recalled Wood's long-lasting impact on the firm and their careers, as well as his wide-ranging interests, which span from Auburn football to poetry. As partner Benno Rothschild told the party-goers, "Buzz knows a lot about a lot of things."
Wood retired this summer after practicing law for more than 30 years.
In today's Four on Friday, we present four photos from last night's festivities. For more photos from the party, check out the "Buzz Wood's Retirement Party" photo album.
