Discussions leading to the formation of Galloway & Lyndall, LLP began in late 1999. The firm was formed and commenced business on June 1, 2000. The firm resulted from the merger of two firms: Newton M. Galloway & Assoc. and The Regulatory Law Group of Philip J. Smith and Terri M. Lyndall. The firm’s first name was Smith, Galloway, Lyndall and Fuchs, with four principals: Philip J. Smith, Newton M. Galloway, Terri M. Lyndall and Dean R. Fuchs. The firm operated out of two offices, Buckhead and Griffin. In 2003, Mr. Smith returned to the Georgia Public Service Commission where he continues to work on energy matters, and Mr. Fuchs left the firm to develop a labor law practice. Beginning January 1, 2004, the firm commenced business under its current name. The firm continued its business from both its Buckhead and Griffin locations until October, 2010 when it consolidated its offices into the Lewis-Mills House in Griffin.
