Representing Apartment Managers and Owners 

About our law firm 

Our firm was established in 1988 by Robert P. Hein and Joe L. Fowler, former classmates and graduates of the University of Georgia School of Law. Robert Hein’s practice group (Robert P. Hein, P.C.) acts as outside general counsel for a large number of local, regional, and national apartment management companies. Joe Fowler has established an independent general practice with an emphasis on small business transactions and serves as City Attorney for Chamblee, Stone Mountain, and Norcross. The firm does business as Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A. (a Georgia professional association).
