Carl Reynolds was born in Atlanta, Georgia and reared in Cordele, Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia for two years, took his B.A. degree from Mercer University, and holds an M.B.A. degree from Georgia College. He received his Juris Doctor degree from Mercer University in 1966. Mr. Reynolds had received a United States Army commission in 1964, but his military duty was deferred while he completed law school. Upon graduation in 1966 he reported for active duty as a first lieutenant in the infantry division and served until the end of 1968. When he returned from active duty, he was admitted to the Georgia and Florida Bars in 1969.
Over the last ten years, Mr. Reynolds has continued an active trial practice as a civil litigator, but has narrowed the scope of that practice significantly. His practice is now limited to medical negligence, products liability (injuries caused by unsafe or defective products), personal injury and wrongful death litigation (lawsuits to recover money for accidents leading to serious injury or death), and he has developed a national reputation for excellence in these areas. During the last fifteen years, he has achieved verdicts and settlements in excess of $135,000,000.00 on behalf of his clients.
Sonja Daugherty: A native of Macon, Sonja Daugherty holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Howard University in Washington, DC. While at Howard, she wrote for the campus newspaper, The Hilltop, and also reported at the student- run radio station.
Returning to Macon, Sonja worked for The Macon Telegraph for several years but then took a position with a large insurance company. There she saw how the law impacted GA residents. She made the transition to working in a law office and is now working in the office of attorney Michael Horner.
She says hosting 13WMAZ LawCall, lets her combine 2 of her favorite things – broadcasting and helping people. “It is also nice my father can watch the show,” she says. “I think he is our biggest fan.”
Sonja and her husband have a lot of family and friends in Macon and Forsyth. You may see the whole clan at any of the concerts and music festivals. She's been a member of the sorority Delta Sigma Theta since 1994. Her guilty pleasure is making desserts.
