Putting Power Into the Community
Despite our broad range of clients, we commit ourselves to enriching and putting power into metropolitan Albany and Southwest Georgia. Our partners, associates and staff are involved in leadership positions in all aspects of the community, including charitable organizations, civic clubs, organizations for the arts, political parties, state and local Chambers of Commerce, local colleges, schools and schools boards, and area churches.
Albany is Home
To us, Albany is home. We believe that we must protect those who need us, be that a client…or simply our neighbor. What happens to our immediate environment directly affects us, and Watson Spence is committed to ensuring that Albany and southwest Georgia is a community that develops and prospers with us.
An Office Over a Dress Shop
The firm was founded on March 1, 1948 by Stuart Watson and Paul Keenan in a three-room office over a dress shop on North Washington Street in downtown Albany. Today, we are still rooted in downtown Albany, but our reach extends well beyond our city's limits, as we provide specialized legal services throughout Georgia and our nation's and states' capitols before the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government. We provide legal power to large and small private corporations, governmental agencies, non-profits and individuals, including financial institutions, agribusinesses, product manufacturers, insurance companies, hospitals and other healthcare companies, transportation companies, professionals, professional associations, and estates.
Experience & Confidence
Our long history gives us the experience and confidence needed to provide innovative legal solutions suited to our clients’ diverse needs. Our core philosophy ensures that we leverage our knowledge and experience for the benefit of our clients as we continue the tradition of providing superior legal services.
