On Monday, February 21, 2011, the Daily Report published an article titled “Driving Their Success” (subscription may be required to view) in which author Michelle Hiskey interviews five attorneys who have recently made partner in metro Atlanta law firms. AGG Partner Michael F. Holbein, the first featured in the story, talks about how he became a first-time father and made partner of the firm all in one week last December. Mr. Holbein describes his path to partnership as a gradual process in which his growing self-confidence in his own ability to step into partner-level work increased the partners’ confidence in him, as well. Mr. Holbein says that he knew the firm had confidence in his abilities when he began arguing before the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. AGG Partner Neil C. Gordon is quoted in the article, complimenting Mr. Holbein’s skills as an attorney and his ability to take control of a room full of disgruntled creditors.
