Canton resident Frances Suarez McKinney, an attorney with more than 25 years of experience, has joined Cook and James, an Atlanta-based real estate law firm which pioneered at-home closings. McKinney’s responsibilities in her new position will include purchase closings, title reviews and leading marketing initiatives.
“Frances brings a unique vitality and depth of experience to Cook and James,” said Kara Cook, co-founding partner at Cook and James. “We’ve worked with Frances in the past and it’s safe to say our entire team is thrilled to have the ability now to work with her on a daily basis.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Frances on board,” said Heather James, co-founding partner at Cook & James. “She commands a high degree of respect in legal circles and fits in perfectly with our culture. Everybody loves working with Frances, clients and colleagues alike.”
McKinney holds both undergraduate and law degrees from Georgia State University. Practicing in the Atlanta area since 1992, she was most recently an attorney with Weissman, PC but over the years has worked at both large and small firms, owned her own firm, and was a consultant.
