About Me

"Divorce hurts, but it doesn't have to be nasty." After 15 years in the courtroom, I have settled into practicing exclusively family law. In addition to working to ensure fair settlements in these cases, I believe a part of my role as an Attorney is to educate my clients about the impact the law will have on their specific issues. I strive to help them to understand the legal implications associated with their choices, and provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

  • Patrick Lehmon Meriwether

    When I first met Georgetta, I was impressed at how she could be strong, confident and humble all at the same time. She loves the practice of law and excels at helping people deal with difficult situations. She loves to take command of the facts and the law in order to later take command of the Courtroom. But, she knows just how to balance that with her experience. She is keenly aware of when a client should settle a case rather than take it to the Judge. She will spend the time to make sure a client understands the risks of going to trial. She will worth with the client so that they understand why they should settle the case and not make a mistake. Then, she will channel her passion to negotiate a good settlement for the client.
