Attorney Profile

Respected by clients and peers alike, Michael Ryan Peacock is a solo-practioner affiliated with the law firm of Hayle Hoffecker Peacock. His practice is split fairly evenly between probate matters (such as estate administration and litigation, guardianships and conservatorships), estate planning, and business and civil litigation (including claims of legal and professional malpractice).

After graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in international relations from Boston University in 2001, Mr. Peacock attended Emory University's School of Law. He graduated with honors in 2004 with a Juris Doctor.

Admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 2004, Mr. Peacock has experience in a number of practice areas. He has advocated for individuals and businesses, plaintiffs and defendants, before trial judges and mediators. This gives him a well-rounded approach, as he is as comfortable arguing a case in the courtroom as he is negotiating the terms of a settlement. Successes include multimillion-dollar settlements and favorable summary judgments. He is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and all trial and appellate courts across the state of Georgia.

Mr. Peacock holds an Avvo “Superb” rating. He is highly regarded for his professionalism in every case, whether dealing with a client, courtroom staff or the other side of the case. Perhaps most importantly, he is sensitive to the needs of each client while at the same time doggedly pursuing the best possible outcome to the case.

Active in the legal community, Mr. Peacock is a member of the Stonewall Bar Association.
