Damon was awesome from the beginning all the way to the end. My case dragged out a while but that was more on me and my ex wife. In the end he made it very easy and I would recommend him to anyone looking for help or advise with a divorce.

When I first met Damon at a divorce seminar I already planned on hiring another highly recommended attorney. When I told Damon who I had planned on hiring he told me the attorney was very good and I was making a great choice in hiring him. I then spoke with Damon briefly about my divorce and what I was hoping to accomplish. He told me I was never going to get what I was planning on asking for. I couldn't believe how honest and straightforward he was. I felt very comfortable with Damon because I never felt he was trying to persuade me to hire him instead of my original choice for an attorney. Although I did not know anything about Damon and spoke with him for only a short time, I decided to follow my gut and hire him. This was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made!
I have to admit that I was initially somewhat anxious about my decision to hire Damon because he was significantly younger and did not have as many years of experience as the original attorney I was going to hire. My husband was also an attorney, so Damon was going up against 2 attorneys who began their careers before Damon even graduated high school. Damon assured me he felt confident in his ability to represent me in my divorce, and he definitely proved it to be true.
The most difficult part of my divorce was knowing and accepting that the lives of my kids and me were in the hands of another person. I had to trust that Damon understood my needs, respected my decisions, and was looking out for the best interest of my kids and me. After being married to an attorney who was neither supportive nor trustworthy, the thought of trusting anyone was terrifying, especially another attorney. Throughout my almost year long divorce Damon continuously reassured me he had my back and was protecting my kids and me. He supported my decisions, yet was also very direct and firm when he felt I was being unrealistic or losing focus. Damon was not only an amazing attorney who helped me get almost everything I felt I needed to effectively support my kids, he was also a strong emotional support when I needed it during my lowest moments. There are no words to describe how thankful I am for everything Damon has done to help my kids and me.
In addition to being a huge support, Damon was very mindful of my financial situation and did everything possible to keep the cost of my divorce to a minimum. His rates were more than fair and I know that unlike most attorney's do, he did not charge me for every minute he spent working on my case.
I hope I never need to hire an attorney again, but if I do I know without a doubt it will be Damon.

Damon represented me in my divorce and four years later in modification of parenting plan. Damon is honest, fair and patient. He helped make me feel safe and kept me informed of my case. I knew Damon was always working for me and listening to what I needed.

Damon Bivek is a very caring family man first. He tries to save your marriage through recommending professional counseling. He's not really interested in a divorce lawsuit until you have exhausted all means to save your marriage. This is the main reason I hired him and after endless free advice. Once I determined that my marriage was over and a divorce was imminent, he highly recommended a fair and reasonable settlement for both parties. If your looking for a top gun with family values, this is your guy! He's one of the best attorneys in Cobb County!!!

Mr. Bivek was retained for a childsupport modification order which devastated me and my children. He is a strong advocate for children and handled my case with utmost efficiency. He took the time to review and present ALOT of documentation to prepare a great defense. I was extremely impressed with his negotiation skills during mediation - not to mention his quick thinking and recollection of tiny details of the case that assisted in a fair resolution. He is very responsive - via email or phone. He cares about his clients and it shows.
I have recommended his services to several people so far - and will continue to do so! He definitely deserves an A+++

I was impressed with this lawyer from the very beginning and was not disappointed. He took a very difficult and possibly complicated situation and made it extremely easy. I could not have asked for more. I plan on using him in the future for another situation needing to be resolved this year. I have complete confidence in Mr. Bivek's ability to handle this situation as excellently as he did the first.

I have never seen a Lawyer so caring and knowledgeable as Damon. He maintains a high level of professionalism making sure everything is done right and the client is satisfied. Damon took over a very difficult and messy divorce and turned it into a positive outcome. In all his dealings with me, Damon was very attentive, respectful and sensitive to my issue. I don't know what I would have done without you. I am so grateful and thank you for all your hard work!
For all those out there who are looking for an excellent representation and a serious advocate, Damon is your man.

Mr. Bivek was my attorney in a custody case in Cherokee County, Ga. It was an extremely difficult case, with many dimentions and emotions involved. I had several lawyers prior to Mr. Bivek who misrepresented me. When I came to see him, I wished I had hired him from the beginning.
He has great reasoning skills, very smart and determined to seek justice. He knows the law and can break down problems and come up with mutiple solutions that other attorney's might miss. He responded to phone calls quickly, was organized and had a great staff. Not only was he professional, but he really showed concern during a diffucult time.
Because of his help and hope for my kids and I in the future, I will be using him again.

I was refered to Damon through a very close friend of mine. Damon was very confident and direct to the point during a very stressful time for me. Immediately he made me aware of our situation and chances for success and for failure. The majority of attorneys just tell you what you want to hear to get you in the boat. Damon was honest, truthful and to the point. He worked diligently on my behalf and came to a very successful outcome. Not only would I retain his services again but I would boastfully recommend him to anyone that needs a solid attorney. Damon is a great attorney and has a bright future. I wish him luck and I am so appreciative of his efforts.

Damon was wonderfully responsive to my requests and also was very compassionate. I felt at ease knowing he would represent me during a difficult time.
Posted by Tracy, a Divorce client, Flag
No two lawyers are alike! Damon is professional and compassionate. My divorce moved ahead efficiently and in a timely fashion without leaving out crucial details. I had a previous experience with another lawyer who was more interested in running up my expenses while leaving me uninformed.Damon understands the importance of getting a fair settlement, keeping my family in mind, and getting the job done. I would highly recommend Damon.

Damon and his team were very responsive to my needs. I was involved with a divorce action that drug out when my spouse left the state and was non responsive. Damon filed for a court date, we then reviewed our evidence and testimony and had a quick hearing. I especially was pleased with the fact that Damon responded to virtually every question or concern I had in a very timely and professional manner. His fees were very reasonable. I highly recommend him.

Damon Bivek is a straight-forward, honest, knowledgeable attorney who is quite skilled at balancing professionalism and compassion when dealing with his clients. My marriage and family is the most important thing to me in my life. Damon was very compassionate to my feelings of sadness. I never contemplated the end of my marriage- â€œricher and poorer- sickness and health- till death do us partâ€, I was all emotional and was shocked to see the black and white of divorce law. His interests were to protect me and my children in the court of law, and he helped me to see the needs of our current situation and the next steps we needed once served with papers.
Over the course of my case, Damon walked me through understanding and establishing a comprehensive joint parenting agreement and a dissolution of marriage agreement that addressed each and every concern I had to focus on for our children down to the last detail.
Regardless of how difficult and confusing the case seemed to me because I wanted to save our marriage, Damon always kept a level head. His cool composure under all circumstances and straight-shooting style was appreciated when I was being attacked by opposing counsel both in and out of my presence. The thing that most impresses me about Damon, however, is that his professionalism and compassion for his clients does not end when the case is filed. He sincerely takes an interest in who his clients are as people. Since the conclusion of my case, Damon Bivek has kept in touch with me consistently, following up on items that were to be completed after the filing, answering questions that have arisen after the fact, or simply checking in to see how my children and I am progressing. He confidently reassured me when/if things go wrong he will always have mine and my childrenâ€™s best interest in court. Damon Bivek demonstrates his winning expertise by implementing a well thought out strategy to focus on a successful outcome for his clients.

There are exactly two attorneys in the world that I trust and Damon Bivek is one of them. He is a gracious and caring gentleman who went above and beyond to keep things moving along smoothly. He has an insight to human nature that combined with his legal expertise made what could have been a miserable year much more comfortable. When it was all over, I felt I got everything we wanted without resorting to any regrettable behavior. And he effectively coached me through moments when I just wanted to give up. Nice!
I will continue to work with Damon and would be happy to speak with anyone considering hiring him.

Wonderful lawyer and person! He has helped me overcome my fears of fighting for custody for my little one. No more worries now since I had him on my side! I would definitely recommend him for a lawyer! He's great!

I can say from my past experiences working other Family Law Attorney's... Mr. Bivek is the most honest and upfront attorney in the Metro Atlanta area. He is extremely knowledged and works hard to fight for the rights of both parties but most importantly, he does what is fair for the children. I was fighting a divorce for four years and changed attorney's twice before. Once I found Mr. Bivek's Law Firm, he had my case wrapped up within two months. His Law Firm isn't the type of Law Firm that will nickel and dime you because you call to see how the case is coming along. He is very respectful and listens to what is going on with your situation before he makes his move on your behalf. He really does his homework beforehand. You cannot go wrong by having Mr. Bivek represent you in your case. I will be using him again in the near future. Thanks again, Mr. Bivek. - JCD

I met Damon late in my case and when I was very frustraited with my previous attorney and the court system. I told Damon what my goals were for the case and he told me what we had to do to achive that outcome in a very straight forward proffesional mannor. I personnaly liked the fact that he got right to the point and didn't waste time weighing every single sentence as if we were being recorded. We have now closed the case and I accomplished everthing that I felt was important to me and my family. I hope I never see the inside of a court room again but if I have to, I'll be hiring Damon. He did a great job.

When circumstances in my life were completely out of my control, Damon Biveks advice and strategic counsel were invaluable. From the moment he began to work on my behalf, there was a huge sense of relief. I had total confidence that life would soon be better, and eventually it was! Thank you so much Damon!! I don't know how I would have made it through this without you!

The first thing I noticed about Mr. Bivek is that he did not rush me. He listened and made me feel very comfortable. He has a way of keeping things simple for the client to understand. No hidden agendas... I felt that I could trust what he said he was doing. What he says, he does.

Damon was the second lawyer on my case. Although his hourly rate was 50 dollars per hour higher than my prior lawyer, his fair and ethical philosophy regarding billing caused me to spend less with him than my previous representative, relative to the amount of work that was performed.
He took my horrifically disorganized case file and within 30 days turned the tide. He may be young, but he is by no means inexperienced. He told me that, in the face or extremely crazy allegations and contentions from my ex's side, if I would stay the course and do what was right, that we would prevail. Although it was quite challenging to do that, I did. And we did prevail, all without using one "nasty" tactic, telling one lie, or doing anything to compromise anyone's moral position.
In addition, all of this was in the face of me having made some critical and necessary business decisions that appeared to be, but actually were not, tactics to limit my property liability and lower my net worth.
So, that being said, Damon and his associates are the right firm to represent you IF you aren't trying to take anyone for a ride. I imagine if you are divorcing a somewhat reasonable person, you could knock it out collaboratively and move on with your life, but don't misunderstand his marketing...he is perfectly prepared to deal with a nasty, dirty case full of immoral people who's only agenda is personal encroachment or spite and still prevail.
I rated a 4 on kept me informed because of some minor communication issues early in. These were easily resolved; do not be afraid to communicate your needs to him.
To be well rounded, if Damon has a weakness, it is his tendency to think out loud and his enthusiasm to answer a question immediately. I would recommend that you allow him time to consider any questions that you ask rather than take the immediate answer. Every single decision that we made was right, but the strategies that we ultimately adopted were often quite different from the initial ideas we had when discussing them. This was no problem for me, tractable is my middle name, but it caused my girlfriend, who was collaborating from the sidelines, a good deal of consternation, and so I bring it up to make your experience better.
So, in short, if you believe in any of the following ethics: recycling, yoga, meditation, peace, harmony, or love, there is a strong chance that Damon or one of his associates would be a good choice to represent you. With any luck, your situation is nowhere near as bad as mine.
As a post script, let me note that my wife spent $65,000 in attorneys fees, I spent less than half of that, and we "won", as much as anyone can in a divorce case.

Damon helped me tremendously through my divorce. Not only was he there to provide legal advice, but also helped me maintain my sanity through this experience. He was extremely helpful in explaining the procedures and possible outcomes of the situation. I felt very comfortable having Damon at my side to advise me through this ordeal. I would highly recommend Damon as an attorney.

I had a very difficult case involving a large arrears and modification of visitation-- both of which are very sensitve issues. Damon worked tirelessly and creatively to help my ex-husband and myself to work through mediation--hence saving a lot of money. My case is of an ongoing nature, and Damon continues to be patient and determined to help me attain the best outcome.

Damon is quite knowledgeable and competent. He made me feel comfortable with his self confidence. There was no wasted time, every meeting, e-mail or phone call was purpose driven. I would recommend him for anyone's legal needs.

Damon has the ability to see the real picture for his clients. He is not afraid to tackle the tough issues, but also focuses on what is right. In our case, the issue was joint custody and he did not back down. He fought for all the things that would allow the father equal time with his children, and focused on "the children" not on the parents. He showed genuine care for the children, moreso than the mother's attorney, and suggested counseling for all parties. He was empathetic, but firm with the steps that needed to take place. He was about doing the right thing, but more importantly about doing things right so that the case was solid, and that there were no surprises. He handled the divorce and custody as separate issues, but also realized that they were interdependent and used this to the advantage of his client.
Damon genuinely cares about his clients, and what I witnessed was his willingness to say when the client is wrong. That takes a lot of integrity in the lawyer and I have a great deal of respect for him in doing so. He is definitely a lawyer I would want on my side, not against me in a tough battle.
