For many years Don has assisted the GVMA in advocating for the veterinary profession, serving as a writer, speaker and our very own legal expert in veterinary and animal law. Don is an attorney, practice owner, and former LVT. He’s published numerous articles on veterinary law, and is the former secretary of the Animal Law Section of the Georgia Bar. Consulting with veterinarians in Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee, he uses a practical and business focused approach to answering questions on compliance with legal requirements of the veterinary profession, client disputes, and business law. Don’s lighthearted examples from two decades in law and a decade running a practice help the time fly with easily remembered examples, like the 99% wolf/1% dog client, the possum‐cat, and the chihuahua divorce. Don’s spare time is spent in the field with his two Italian Spinoni and providing meals for horse riding events. He authors the blog “BetterVet Practices” at Bettervet.org and is an advocate for Animal Health and Veterinary Wellness.
