4.5 stars 9 totalReview Andrea Hastings
I had a wonderful experience with Andee as my attorney during my divorce. My husband was extremely difficult, and had significant personality issues. He made outrageous and unreasonable demands, and I was certain that the divorce would be drawn-out, complicated and extremely expensive. Andee cut through all of the issues like a knife. I know that it is unusual, but I received exactly what I was seeking and my divorce was over much more quickly than I ever could have imagined or hoped. She handled things for me in a professional way, and I ended up with much more than I expected in the settlement and the entire of the cost was a fraction of what I had anticipated! With Andee working for and with me, the whole process turned out much better than it could have and I am grateful to her every day for standing by my side through this process.
I hired Andee and her team for my divorce/child custody case. Five months from the day my ex husband filed for divorce, our case ended up being settled in mediation (no litigation was involved, even though I had initially expected that we would have to litigate due to the high conflict between my ex and I). Joint custody was the final outcome in my case, which was my goal from the very start. Andee and her team thoroughly worked on my case from start to finish, frequently updated me on the progress of my case, and consequently won me the results I had wanted to begin with. However, please be forewarned that ANDEE HASTINGS & HER TEAM ARE VERY EXPENSIVE TO HIRE! I'M TALKING TRIPLE THE COST OF MOST OTHER DIVORCE/CHILD CUSTODY ATTORNEYS! IF YOU DO HIRE ANDEE, EXPECT TO PAY OUTRAGIOUS ATTORNEY FEES THAT WILL TAKE YEARS TO PAY OFF! PLEASE EXPECT DEBT FOR MANY, MANY YEARS FOR A DIVORCE THAT IS SETTLED IN MEDIATION ALONE! I CANT EVEN IMAGINE THE COST OF LITIGATION IF YOUR CASE GOES TO COURT W/ ANDEE AS YOUR DIVORCE/CHILD CUSTODY ATTORNEY! IF YOU ARE NOT A MILLIONAIRE, PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE HIRING ANDEE & HER TEAM! $$$$$$

I found Andee through another client when I was in search of a divorce lawyer. She came so highly recommended that I insisted upon meeting her. After researching her and her firm her firm, she was my choice. Andee is highly professional, very experienced and tremendously knowledgeable in divorce, custody and child support (which were the issues that I had to deal with). One thing I appreciated the most was her candor in helping me to assess the cost-benefit of where to have her and her team work "for" me, and when the cost was going to be greater than the "fight". She always allowed me to make the ultimate decisions, but I was able to do that from an informed position. When it seemed that I was making decisions from an emotional standpoint, Andee was great at providing rational options or strategies focused on the desired outcomes for my case, along with pratical guidance that was most appropriate for achieving those goals. She kept me grounded and focused through the entire process. I also knew that she not only cared about me as a client, but as a person, and that meant so much to me during such a difficult process. Her strategic thinking skills and legal guidance were outstanding and contributed to reaching a fair settlement. I would highly recommend Andee. The entire staff was highly professional, responsive, and efficient.

I was referred to Andee for my divorce case by an attorney that I respect and trust. He did not let me down in his recommendation. Andee helped me through one of the most heart-wrenching, scary times in my life. I did not expect my divorce and was not emotionally prepared for any of it. Andee shepherded me through the process with compassion, dedication, skill and professionalism. She was extremely responsive to me, and she very patiently answered all of my questions while also keeping her eye on my goals in my case. She ultimately negotiated a very favorable settlement for me, and I could not be more grateful. Her understanding of the law and ability to understand people and their situations is not to be underestimated. I have recommended her to several people looking for attorneys to represent them in their divorces. I hope I never go through something like this again, but if I do, I want her by my side.

Andrea Hastings represented me in a 2008 divorce when a partner her previous law firm. After spending an exorbitant amount of money we were consistently losing every aspect of my case. I was shocked to learn after she withdrew my case that she had little to no experience in domestic trials in Fulton county. She was transitioning from being a prosecutor in the Conyers area and getting her feet wet at my expense. I lost literally everything in my divorce - over four million dollars in cash and assets. Beware.

Andee Hastings provided exemplary service during an extremely difficult time in my life and the lives of my children. Andee was highly recommended to me by another client when I was in search of a child support/custody attorney. Andee is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very experienced in her area of legal concentration, family law. One thing I appreciated the most was her willingness to tell me what I needed to hear and what my "risks" were in pursuing certain issues that may hurt more than help me. I always knew she was standing right by my side and had my best interests at heart, and the best interests of my children. She allowed me the ability to make the decisions, but with all of the information I needed to do so and not simply based on my emotional reaction to the situation. She protected me more than I can say in doing that for me. When I was making emotional decisions, Andee gave me legal, logical, rational options that moved me toward my goals in my case. She has an amazing ability to think strategically and long-term, which is exactly what I needed to achieve a successful outcome in my case. I highly recommend Andee and her firm.

Andee represented me in my divorce. She and her team worked very well on my case. The cards were stacked against me financially and with regards to custody, but I ended up with a fair and equitable settlement thanks to Andee's knowledge and those of her staff. She was very cost efficient as well. She was thoughtful, professional, and had a deep understanding of the law. I have spoke with others who wish they could have divorced with a result like the one I received. I strongly recommend Andee.

Ms. Hastings is bright, knowledgeable, objective, and compassionate - all qualities that make for an amazing attorney. When I needed help with a family law issue, she was available and eager to help answer my questions. She told me the truth about my situation, not just what I wanted to hear. She didn't advise rushing right into expensive litigation and discussed various options with me. I knew I could trust her advice and was in good hands.
