Office Information

Baker Donelson expanded its footprint in the southeast when shareholders Kelly Overstreet Johnson and Dena H. Sokolow opened the Tallahassee office in 2014. Both are Tallahassee natives with strong connections in the legal and judicial communities of Florida's capital city.

Lawyers in our Tallahassee office serve businesses in the city, the state of Florida and throughout the United States, providing general business advice and helping clients to resolve business disputes. The Tallahassee office has a diverse practice and is known for its strength in general commercial litigation, labor and employment law and litigation, health care advice and litigation, financial institutions and real estate, both transactional work and litigation. Our Tallahassee-based administrative law practice provides counsel on regulatory disputes with public entities, as well as litigation before Florida's Division of Administrative Hearings on issues relating to bid protests and other procurement issues. Ms. Johnson, the office managing shareholder, is a sought after mediator for all types of disputes.

We are committed to the highest standards of client service – partnering with clients to solve legal and business problems. Our clients benefit from a seasoned local team and the strong support of lawyers and professionals in Baker Donelson's more than 20 other offices. We are known for our ability to handle matters efficiently and creatively.

Our lawyers' commitment to nurturing a collegial work environment complements and reinforces their commitment to excellent client service, as do state-of-the-art technology and support services. In addition, both lawyers and administrative staff are active and committed to giving back to the community in which we live and work – by volunteering and providing charitable support to leading social service organizations in the Tallahassee metropolitan area. While our Tallahassee office is relatively new, our commitment to clients and the community is second to none.
