Education

Born and raised in Augusta, Kurt Graduated from Greenbrier High School in 2006 and graduated Cum Laude from the University of Arizona in 2010. Kurt received an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona and was a member of the wheelchair rugby team all four years. He is a member of Phi Alpha Theta (History Honor Society) and Pi Sigma Alpha (Political Science Honor Society). Kurt then returned home and graduated from Mercer University with his Juris Doctor in 2014 where he was a member of Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society. Kurt managed his own law practice prior to joining Blake and Associates.

Background

Kurt was born with cerebral palsy, but sports have played a defining role in his life whether it was at the local level with the Columbia County Fireballs or the Georgia Blazers traveling basketball team. Additionally, he also played rugby during high school with the team sponsored by the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. While in law school, Kurt interned with the Georgia Advocacy Office in Atlanta. This internship gave him experience in effectively advocating for individuals with disabilities. Kurt's work prior to joining Blake and Associates involved representing children in Juvenile Court whether they were Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) cases or delinquency cases. He is currently one of two child attorneys in Richmond County DFCS cases. It is through his work with children that his appreciation for Family Law deepened.

In his spare time Kurt enjoys watching sports, and is particularly obsessed with University of Arizona basketball. He also enjoys reading, and spending time with family and friends. He is current a member of Lewis Memorial United Methodist Church where he, and his family, have been members for 20 years.
