Start with the State Bar of Georgia. If he is retired or deceased , theymay have a last known address. That should give you a starting point. If you know where he used to practice, call some of the lawyers in that area. They may have an address or another way to contact the person you are looking for. Lawyers are not required to keepfile forever. The bar has published suggested guidelines about file retention. Depending on the subject and the time that has passed since it was closed, the lawyer's file may no longer exist.

The New York Bar Association has the registered office number of every attorney in New York, but if he has given up his office you may have to use an online locater service. The Bar Association does not keep the cell phone of attorneys, but if he was a member of the Assigned Counsel Plan they will have his cell number if it is the same as when he was practicing.
