Long time friend & partner, E.J. Maddocks, has this to say about Serotta:

"I have seen Abram demonstrate the skills and professional ethics he learned at UGA. Those skills, acquired at UGA and honed at SME, are numerous and valuable. His ethics are beyond reproach. And, his devotion to his clients and community is unmatched.

Abram's 'bulldog attitude' has been used many times to create and maintain high standards for our firm, his seminar participants, his university classes, and the many community organizations for which he volunteers."

The Terry College is proud to present the 2004 Distinguished Alumni Award to Abram Serotta.
