David H. Wood

David H. Wood, Managing Partner

David has represented a multitude of companies as lead counsel over the past two and a half decades in hundreds of cases in the state and federal trial courts of both Georgia and Texas and in numerous appeals before the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia. Many of these cases have involved a plethora of fact and expert witnesses and thousands of evidentiary documents.

David is a former "Big Firm" attorney. Prior to Wood & Solis, LLP, David served with the New York based firm of Kroll & Tract. Upon moving to Atlanta, David sought a smaller firm platform to better serve his clients.

David's clients come from a diverse array of industries -- real estate, consulting, manufacturing, construction, finance, technology, trucking, foodservice, telecommunications, and retail to name a few. David handles commercial contract and business tort causes of action, as well as product and premises liability. David has the extensive trial experience a client needs and should expect from their attorney.

David graduated from Vanderbilt University and the University of Houston Law School. He served as an Editor on the Houston Journal of International Law. Away from the law, David enjoys golf and spending time with his wife and nine-year old daughter. David's clients can walk with the confidence that comes from knowing their lawyer has the experience and abilities necessary to help them achieve their goals.

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'.
