Moving to Columbus, GA

Lance is married to Kathryn Phillips Collier, originally from Cochran, GA. When they began looking for a place to raise their two young daughters and to start a practice, they were instantly taken with the wholesome, hometown feel of Columbus – and its thriving economy.

 

Finally Home

They decided on the up and coming development of The Village at Green Island on the north end of River Road as the location for the office. Further, the area offers all kinds of recreational activities, of which, Lance’s favorites are golf and bird hunting.
