Two new faces at Cook & James

by Timothy Inklebarger

Atlanta-based real estate law firm Cook & James has hired two additional attorneys, Bryce Linden and Jana Paterson, as part of an “aggressive growth trajectory” the firm launched in 2017, according to a press release.

“We have expanded in a steady growth pattern over the last few years,” said Heather James, co-founding partner at Cook & James. “Today’s announcement that Bryce and Jana have joined our firm allows us to better meet the needs of our current clients and more strategically expand our signature ‘at-home’ closing service to new areas in the Atlanta metro and throughout Georgia.”

Linden holds a master’s degree in environmental law from George Washington University, and Paterson has partnered with Cook & James since 2012 as a contractor. She holds a degree in broadcast journalism from San Francisco State University and a law degree from Georgia State University.

“Bringing Jana and Bryce on board allows us to harness their expertise and enthusiasm to continue to offer a superior closing experience to our valuable clients, collaborators and colleagues,” said Kara Cook, co-founding partner. “We are happy to announce our newest staff expansion with these two professionals who fit so nicely with the Cook & James culture.”
