The Georgia Association of Tax Officials (GATO) has named Weissman PC attorneys Brad Hutchins and Allie Jett GATO’s first General Counsel.

The General Counsel role was created to provide legal guidance on the impacts of legislation and court decisions, property tax matters and other legal issues important to GATO and its membership.  This role also serves as a strategic legal adviser to the leadership team.

“Brad and Allie are well-versed in tax practices,” notes GATO President Cindy Cannon. “Their in-depth knowledge of tax practices on local and state levels provides GATO with an expertise to help strengthen our organization.”

Brad and Allie, both partners at Weissman PC, bring over three decades of experience representing clients with tax liens and tax deeds, representing County Tax Commissioners, and handling suits in property tax related cases.  In addition, they each maintain a real estate litigation practice.

“Allie and I look forward to working with GATO. It is a natural fit for our practice, as we work with tax commissioners from across the state on a variety of issues,” says Brad Hutchins. “GATO not only provides strategic guidance to commissioners, but advances the legislative agenda of tax officials and we look forward to working with GATO leadership and its members,” adds Allie Jett.
