Michael L. Solis

Michael L. Solis, Managing Partner

With a significant background as a professional architect--including projects such as the Georgia Dome, Buckhead Plaza, and the Turner Broadcasting campus in Atlanta and Le Halle de Champion in Paris--Michael focuses on litigation for construction and real estate development. Prior to forming his own firm, he was in the construction litigation practice group at Troutman Sanders.

In almost two decades as a litigator, Michael has achieved a successful resolution in 97% of his cases and is unbeaten in appellate matters. Keenly discerning a nexus between contracts as the "rules of the game" and the risk management of litigation avoidance, he has reviewed and negotiated over 300 major commercial construction contracts for such global companies as Johnson Controls, Turner Construction, and Turner Broadcasting.

Walking into the courtroom, Michael is bolstered by three decades of competitive speaking experience. In fact, the lifetime achievement award of Georgia's largest Toastmasters club (founded by and serving litigators) is named in his honor. Broadly educated, Michael holds three graduate degrees--from Duke Divinity School, Emory Law School, and The University of Tennessee School of Architecture.

Michael is a candidate for ordination in The United Methodist Church and a member of Peachtree Rd. UMC. He has also served as a chaplain in the emergency and intensive care departments of Emory-St. Joseph's Hospital. In his leisure time, he is a licensed sailing instructor and certified captain for sailboats up to 50'.
