My firm practices family law only. Family law encompasses divorces, custody modifications, child support, paternity legitimization, and domestic violence representation. Anything that involves family law and the new relationships that are created after a divorce or separation that’s what we handle.
People ask us a lot why should we choose you over other firms? There are a lot of good family law firms in Atlanta but I’ll tell you what sets us apart. First, we do not bill by the hour we charge flat fees so you will now at the beginning of your case what the entire case will cost if it goes all the way through to trial. And that’s something that’s very unique for family law attorneys. I think flat fee is a benefit for both the client and for myself because you know and you can budget what you can afford in terms of litigation and it’s helpful for us because we can spend time focusing on your case and resolving your issues rather than sending you bills and trying to collect.
When you’re looking for a family law attorney there is a few things that you should look for first, you need to find one that’s within your budget and you can afford and you need to have a frank and honest conversation with the attorney about what your budget is and what you’re looking for. You also need to find someone that aligns with what your goals and expectations are. If you have goals that are unrealistic the attorney should be able to tell you that those goals are unrealistic so you really need to make sure that you trust the person that you’re hiring.
In terms of experience, you really need to find someone that has a significant amount of experience in family law. Family law is not something that you can dabble in. It’s very unique especially in Georgia. And because there’s such a wide discretion that courts are allowed you really need to hire someone that’s very familiar with the system, who’s familiar with the judges and how things work, and has good resilience’s and rapports with court personnel and other attorneys because that makes up about 50 percent of your case. It’s not just knowing the law and knowing how to argue and yell it’s the nuances that your family law attorney needs to have in order to get you a good result.
