In Atlanta, Georgia, he has handled products liability litigation for national insurance companies as a member of a large, Atlanta-based law firm. Mr. Snyder frequently retained and consulted with fire, consumer product, and construction experts regarding product failures, and he successfully mediated four cases in which he secured substantial settlements for his clients.

He advised his commercial real estate clients on navigating pre-litigation, interpreting and enforcing lease terms, drafting lease amendments and being compliant with municipal, county and state ordinances.
In 2010, Mr. Snyder co-founded his own law firm in Atlanta where he primarily handled matters involving contract, construction, and real estate disputes on behalf of numerous private and publicly-traded companies, city and county governments, quasi-governmental entities, and the State of Georgia.
