Goggans, Stutzman, Hudson, Wilson, and Mize, LLP
ATLANTA (March 11, 2022) – Mechelle Montgomery-Bumpers JD, BS-RRT, RRT-ACCS has joined the Atlanta-based real estate practice of Goggans, Stutzman, Hudson, Wilson & Mize, LLP and replaces Lynn Wilson as the firm’s Chair of the Landlord/Tenant practice.
Prior to her decision to pursue a legal career, Montgomery-Bumpers graduated with a B.S. Degree in Cardiopulmonary Care Science from the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama and worked at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hospital for 15 years.
“As a Cardiopulmonary Care Practitioner, I learned to act decisively in critical moments. I provided technical advice for my patients, and served as an educator to nurses, physicians and other medical personnel to help secure the best possible patient outcomes,” notes Montgomery-Bumpers. “As a Lead Clinical Facilitator, I was instrumental in providing solutions and best practices for program compliance resolution, and unified and integrated clinical policies across seven locations.”
In 2008, she branched out as a Registered Neutral/Mediator and mediated landlord-tenant issues in 10 Georgia counties. She was assigned by the U.S. Atlanta District Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to facilitate resolutions of individual employment discrimination complaints.
Her extensive experience in the workplace and her passion for negotiating the wanted outcomes in various subjects for her clients led her to obtaining her JD Degree. She graduated with the Highest Distinction from Georgia State University in 2010, where she served as a Graduate Research Assistant (Information Technology) and filled a variety of functions, including Vice President, within the Student Trial Law Association.
“Mechelle brings an astonishing wealth of workplace experience to the table,” says Vanessa Goggans, Managing Partner of GSHWM. “We are proud to welcome her to our rapidly-expanding firm where she will be an integral part in delivering sound and creative solutions for our variety of clients.”
