She taught French and English both at the Elementary and High School levels. She then made the decision to study law. In addition, Sonia clerked at the Georgia Supreme Court for the then Presiding Justice Robert Benham. 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 Mrs. 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, Mrs. 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.
