Sonia M. Mahoney is an Associate Attorney at Hart & Hart. She spent her formative years in Jamaica, West Indies, then migrated to the United States in 1985. Between 1980 and 1985, Ms. Mahoney’s passion for Language and Writing led her into the field of teaching. She taught French and English both at the Elementary and High School levels. After coming to the U.S., Ms. Mahoney spent the next seven years exclusively raising her family. She then made the decision to study law. She has spent the last fourteen years practicing law, mainly in the fields of personal injury and family law. She has successfully litigated and tried numerous civil cases.
Although Ms. Mahoney loves her work as an attorney, she is proudest of her job as a parent to her five (5) children. Three of her children have already graduated from college: UNC Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt University and Emory University. At least one is following in her footsteps and is a rising third-year law student at Emory University. Her daughter just graduated as an Emory nurse.
In her spare time, Ms. Mahoney takes pleasure in cooking Jamaican meals for her family and friends and is an avid Scrabble player. She and her husband recently celebrated 26 years of marriage, and she endeavors to bring her life experience to the practice of law. She understands that most clients seek legal help when they are at the lowest point in their lives, and tries her best to treat each one with the dignity and respect they deserve.
