Brenda Krebs Orrison, Lawyer at Orrison Law Firm, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in construction litigation.
Ms. Orrison became involved in her profession because a high school English teacher encouraged her to pursue law due to her personality. For a class writing project, the teacher assigned her a legal issue about which to write. This was her first legal writing assignment and it stuck. Ms. Orrison earned her BA magna cum laude from the University of Tennessee in 1975 and her JD from the University of Georgia in 1977. From there she gained admittance to practice law at all the U. S. Bankruptcy Courts and U.S. District Courts in the states of Georgia and North Carolina, the state courts of Georgia and North Carolina, the Supreme Court of the United States and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and Eleventh Circuits, among others.
After college, Ms. Orrison started her career as an associate at Redmond, Stevens, Loftin & Currie from 1978 to 1980. She moved on to become a senior associate counsel at the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority in 1980 and remained there until 1985. Ms. Orrison then became a senior trial counsel for the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company from 1985 to 1992. From there she became an attorney for Porter & Barrett in 1992 and remained until 1999 and in 2000, she became a partner for Porter, Orrison & Doster until 2004. In 2004, she earned partner at Porter & Orrison, LLP and stayed there until 2014 when she opened her own law firm called The Orrison Law Firm, where she remains today. As a testament to her success, Ms. Orrison has been named to Top Lawyers in Georgia from 2013 to 2018 and a Georgia Super Lawyer in 2019.
