Greg was very helpful both to me with my divorce and to my sons with their legal issues. He was very informative and didn't seem to mind taking the time to explain whatever questions we had. I would recommend him.

Greg Abney is a wonderful Attorney. Greg helped me get full sole physical and sole legal custody of my 4 year old son. When I received an email from my son's father requesting visitation and drop off spots I got a sick feeling inside. I called Greg for a consultantion and retained him on the spot. After a few court dates and dozens of e-mails to one another, we were granted everything we wanted. My son has supervised visits once a week with his dad and his dad has to submit to 1 year of drug testing. I was awarded sole physical and legal custody of my son. I remember the nervousness and anxiety I felt during the process. Greg by my side made all that disappear. He guided me every step of the way. Any questions I had he was very responsive. I was blessed to have a Greg as my attorney and giving me the greatest gift of all, my son.

Mr. Abney handled my divorce several years ago. My now-ex and I had verbally agreed on terms prior to the one-year separation required in this state prior to formal filing. He decided to file two months before the one-year date, and turned the whole process into a truly ugly thing. The mystery of his action was solved when the filings from his combative, fee-seeking attorney started rolling in. I had 30 days to respond, and didn’t know who I could turn to for help.
I put my case info on an on-line attorney referral service, and received three replies. I chose Mr. Abney because his response represented a decent and measured approach to the situation. He worked within my financial means, kept me from going crazy, and shepherded the process. He recognized and used the right moment to turn around an ugly development, and got the agreement back to the original terms. Bless him for that.
Finally, I was able to question my ex about what happened, and he said, “Did your attorney do what you wanted him to do?” I said, “Yes, my attorney actually did exactly what I wanted him to do.” If I ever need an attorney, I would call Mr. Abney in a heartbeat.
