Following his return to civilian life from military service in 1997, Robert T. Prior founded the firm as a solo practice. Known at that time as Robert T. Prior, LLC, the firm practice area was almost exclusively in the area of transactional work. In 2005, Michael C. Daniel left the firm Fortson, Bentley & Griffin in Athens and joined Mr. Prior to form the firm Prior & Daniel, LLC. As Mr. Daniel’s practice was in the area of business and commercial litigation, he established an Athens office with an emphasis on litigation.
Morris H. Wiltshire, Jr. “Mo” was appointed by Governor Perdue as Solicitor-General for Athens-Clarke County in 2005 and served in that post until January 1, 2007 where he lead the office charged with the prosecution of all matters in the State Court of Clarke County and Athens City Courts. When his term as Solicitor-General expired, Mo resumed the private practice of law by joining Prior and Daniel, whereupon the firm became known as Prior, Daniel & Wiltshire.
