Marc Pilgrim is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law and has been practicing law for over twenty-six years. His primary practice area is residential real estate closings. He also has extensive background in both criminal law and personal injury.
During his extensive legal career, he has fought for the rights of his clients in front of Judges throughout the state, including the Supreme Court of Georgia. His diverse legal background allows him to identify defenses and legal strategies which gives his clients the edge during trials and in negotiations with prosecutors.
As a trail attorney, Marc used his teaching gifts for making complex legal concepts easy to understand for his clients and for the courts. As a professor, Marc taught civil procedure, property law, business law and paralegal studies in the traditional setting at Morris Brown College. In addition, he taught an accelerated paralegal studies program at the University of Georgia's Gwinnett Campus, training the next generation of paralegals with practical and textbook knowledge of the legal profession.
Marc's ability to simplify concepts is of great benefit to his real estate practice where new buyers often have questions about the process and the documents they are signing. His sincere desire to help them understand creates a stress free and efficient closing experience for buyers, sellers and agents. Marc believes in providing the most convenient closing experience for all parties and doesn't mind taking the closing experience outside of his office, providing mobile closing services for clients on both ends of the transaction throughout the metro area.
Marc explains his client-centered approach to his real estate practice this way, “I try to work with my client's busy schedules. I let them go as fast or as slow as they need and take the closing table to them whenever closing at the office in the traditional setting is not convenient for them. When they close with me, they will feel as though they understand the documents and walk away satisfied and without losing excessive time away from their work or other obligations.
In his free time, Marc enjoys listening to history podcasts and spending time with his wife and family. Marc and his wife April are active members of North Avenue Presbyterian Church in downtown Atlanta where Marc serves as an ordained Deacon.
Marc's wife is also a real estate broker and when not selling real estate, she assists him in his real estate closing practice. She and Marc both know first-hand the stressors agents and their clients experience in the stressful process of buying and selling homes.
