Gregory Shenton is an experienced attorney who has served and represented small business owners, as well as Fortune 500 companies and individuals, for over twenty years.
Greg graduated with honors from Transylvania University in 1997, where he was President of the Student Alumni Association, interned with the Kentucky state legislature, was a member of the Baseball and Cross-Country teams, and a two-time All-American Scholar Athlete in Cross-Country. While attending Emory University’s School of Law, Greg served as a Vice President of the Student Bar Association, President of the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, and President of the Graduate Senate, where Greg helped in establishing on-campus childcare services for graduate students in need. Greg graduated from Emory Law School in 2000 and was awarded the Dean’s Public Service Award for his community contributions.
Greg started his career with a large firm in Atlanta. In 2005, Greg left his large firm and then became a partner at his new firm in Midtown Atlanta. While a partner at his new firm, Greg represented mothers who were owed back child support from delinquent fathers on a pro bono basis. In 2012, Greg resigned from his firm to start his own firm on the Marietta Square, committed to representing Cobb County small business owners. Greg has represented small businesses with getting started, in litigation, and (perhaps more importantly) in proactively avoiding litigation.
A member of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, Greg has been recognized in MDJ’s Best of Cobb every year since 2018, including in the areas of Civil Attorneys, Employment Attorneys, and Overall Attorney. Greg was also recognized as a SuperLawyers Rising Star from 2010 to 2014 and as a SuperLawyer in Business Litigation from 2022 to 2024. Greg is also a member of the Leadership Cobb Class of 2015.

Greg is admitted to practice in all state courts in the State of Georgia, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Middle District of Georgia and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, before whom he has appeared and argued orally on a multi-million dollar class action coverage dispute.
Greg serves his community in a number of ways. Greg has served multiple terms on the Cobb County Bar Association Board of Trustees, has served multiple terms of the Business Law & Litigation Section for the Cobb Bar, has chaired the Bench & Bar Committee since 2016, and, since 2018, has chaired the Law Day Classic Benefitting the Children’s Emergency Fund. The Children’s Emergency Fund is the charitable arm of the Cobb Bar and provides one-time grants for children with critical needs, such as facing eviction, needing to have a broken bone set, or needing glasses to see at school. Greg also chaired the Cobb Bar’s first year of participation in the Attorney General’s Legal Food Frenzy, which collects food for hungry families in Georgia. In recognition for his contributions to the Cobb Bar and the community at large, Greg has been awarded multiple Bar Stars and was recognized with the President’s Award in 2019.
Outside of the bar community, Greg has coached youth baseball, softball, basketball, football, and soccer since 2002, currently serves on the Board of Trustees for Smyrna First United Methodist Church, served for nine years as President of the Greenwood Homeowners Association, and served two years on the Board of Directors for the Kiwanis Club of Marietta, for which Greg also headed up programs such as Roll & Read for the Emily Lembeck Early Learning Center and the Kiwanis Club’s participation in Cobb Diaper Day.
