Mary Pool is a shareholder of Bond, Botes, Shinn & Donaldson, P.C.  Mary has a unique background in finance in that she has 20 years of experience in the financial industry including a national bank.  She worked in various departments during these years, including marketing, loan product management, conversions and acquisitions, loan servicing and project management.  In 2004, Mary decided to leave banking and become an attorney.  She started law school at Faulkner University’s Jones School of Law in Montgomery.  Her goal was always to find a position that was able to use her financial background for the better and that led her to her work family at Bond, Botes, Shinn & Donaldson, P.C.  Mary cares about every person that walks in her office and enjoys assisting her clients from intake to discharge in their bankruptcy process. 

Mary primarily practices bankruptcy law, chapter 13 and chapter 7.  She also helps clients with their social security appeals if they are denied social security.  She has represented thousands of clients over the past 11 years.

Mary was born in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Both her mother and father were born in Virginia as well so she still has family there.  Mary’s father was in the Army so they moved around a lot until she was 7 when her father transferred to Anniston, Alabama.  She went to high school in Saks and most of her family still lives in the Anniston area. In the early 90s, Mary moved to Montgomery and she has called it home ever since.  Mary is married to a lifetime resident of Montgomery, Greg Pool, and they have one daughter.

What I like best about my job

I love interacting with people and helping to provide them solutions to their financial needs.  Nothing brings me pure joy than to hear someone say “I am going to be able to sleep tonight” after I am able to help take away their financial stress.
