Meet Joe F. O’Kelley, Jr.

Managing Partner, O’Kelley & Sorohan, Attorneys at Law, LLC

The Story:
Joe O’Kelley is a managing partner of O’Kelley and Sorohan, a full-service residential real estate law firm specializing in title, closings and default services, as well as commercial transactions, wills and estate planning. They are a 70-employee firm and growing, with 18 offices throughout Georgia and metro Atlanta.

How I Got Here:
Practicing law is my third career, which began in supercomputer sales and then investment banking. At 33 I left the heavy travel schedule behind and returned to law school to pursue a career in real estate law.

What I Do For Fun:
I relish time spent with my daughter Sarah, especially coaching her basketball teams. He also enjoys Fantasy Football League trips with friends I’ve known for over 20 years, while golf and tennis round out his free time.

My Big Dream:

I dream of waking up to a pre-2007 market! Also to maintain my good health and family, take advantage of business opportunities presented to the firm, and most importantly become involved in shaping the lives of children.

What’s Next For Me:
I want to establish O&S as the dominant player in title, closing and default services. I want to fully diversify, and continue growth in the litigation and commercial practice groups.
