Remembering two very special Atlantans

Pete Combs interviews Niall Cronnolly and John Mayoue

"Eagle is once of those rare firms that combines competence with creativity."
I had the honor and privelege of knowing Pete Combs for many years. His unmistakable voice was instantly recognizable. I had many good times with him and his wife Karen and truly enjoyed this radio interview with him. 
Pete worked for nine years at WSB from 2006 to 2015, then spent a little time in Seattle for two years before returning to WSB in Atlanta, working both for the radio station and ABC News.
Prior to WSB, he worked at WGST-AM in Atlanta as well as radio stations in Tulsa, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Dallas and Charlotte. He had a wonderfully diverse 40-year career.
Pete also covered many big storms, the BP oil spill and the Haiti earthquake, to name a few. His last travel assignment for ABC and WSB was tracking Hurricane Dorian as it approached the Carolina coast in early September.

Pete succumbed to very aggressive cancer and it was a shock to everyone who knew him. A great talent was taken from us and we weren’t prepared for it. 

We miss you, Pete. 

John Mayoue was an Atlanta divorce attorney that was taken from us too soon. Eagle had the privelege of working with John for many years on some of the most hotly-fought and high profile divorce cases. 

John was born March 27, 1954, and was a long time resident of Cobb County. He came from rural roots and attended Transylvania University, from which he graduated with a double major in English and History. He graduated from Emory Law in 1979. 

He was the founding partner of Mayoue Gray Eittreim, P.C. During his successful career he routinely was named a Top 10 Attorney in the state. 

He was a Super Lawyer. He was listed in Best Lawyers in America since 1993. In 2012 he was listed as Best Lawyer’s in America Lawyer of the Year. 

As John mentions in the interview cases like his needed creative strategic thinking and most private investigators just didn’t have what it took to work with him. We are honored to have worked with him and his team for so many years. 

We miss you, John.
