Neal has an extensive real estate law background and a growing government relations practice. A 25-year veteran of the Atlanta legal industry, his real estate practice covers the sale and leasing of, and the making of loans on, all types of commercial properties. Dodell has served as in-house counsel for life insurance companies, including MetLife and ING.
His government relations practice has so far dealt with education and foster care issues on behalf of clients.
He served on the Advisory Committee of the Georgia Literacy Commission, and continues to work for literacy improvement and education reform in our state.
Neal was a long-time member of the Jewish Community Relations Council. His work with JCRC led to the revitalization of the Cabbagetown community in downtown Atlanta, and to legal immigrants in Georgia obtaining public benefits. Before beginning his legal career, Neal worked for United Jewish Appeal in New England and for B’nai B’rith in New York City.
He is a resident of Roswell and has been married to his wife, Roslyn, a trust and estates lawyer, for 35 years. They have two daughters.
Neal’s reason for involvement in Jewish Fertility Foundation stems from a desire to give back to, and to help grow, the Jewish community, arising in part from his own family’s fertility struggles. His legal background can hopefully bring value to the JFF’s procedures, its future growth and the populations it serves.
He is particularly proud to be a part of an organization that makes needed services relating to all aspects of infertility accessible to the Jewish community and beyond.
