About Me

I have over twenty-three years of professional and executive management experience, including service in the United States Army. I also have and twenty-four years of educational credits toward my Associates Degree, Bachelor of Arts Degree, Master of Arts Degree, Industrial/Organizational Ph.D. Program and Juris Doctor Degree. I own and manage the law offices of Caryn S. Fennell, P.C. which I opened on November 9, 2010, the same day I swore into the Georgia Bar Association and the Georgia State Courts. I am currently licensed to practice in the Federal Courts, Georgia Appeals Court and State Courts. 

Since opening my firm, I have closed over 850 family and criminal law cases across Georgia. I specialize in complex custody and criminal matters, and have a passion for father's rights and parental alienation cases. My firm is most proud of our ability to draw up our vast professional experience to adeptly care for the unique needs of every client we serve. My firm has an excellent reputation for aggressive case investigation, persistent advocacy, and for implementing a very reasonable fee structure for clients. I review every case in detail to develop a customized legal strategy for each client. I am a client-centered lawyer focused on expeditious and cost effective case resolution. 

I proudly serve the family and criminal law needs of clients in Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Forsyth, Pickens and Paulding Counties and have grown my practice solely through the most honorable of compliments, which is the client referral.

  • Elizabeth J. Kuhn

    Ms. Fennell is a very aggressive attorney who gets the job done. I had the pleasure of working with her in a highly contested divorce case. She always fought for her client. Even when we were not "fighting", she worked hard on settlement negotiations. I never had a difficult time reaching her via phone or email, which cannot be said for others in the legal community.
