Two months after joining Hartman Simons, associate Charles Elrod agreed to answer four questions so we can get to know the firm’s newest addition a bit better. Elrod, who came from Miller & Martin, will work with Amanda Buckley in the corporate practice area. Elrod was attracted to Hartman Simons in large part because of the team atmosphere. Born and bred in Atlanta, Elrod graduated from Washington and Lee University and earned his law degree at the University of North Carolina. He is getting married this fall.
