About Me

I received my undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University and was awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree upon graduation. I also received my Juris Doctorate degree from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School.


I am licensed to practice law in the State of Georgia and have been admitted to and practiced law before the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia


Although my main office is located in Coweta County, I have represented Clients in legal matters in most of the county and municipal courts systems across North and Central Georgia. 


Additionally, I have served as a Special Prosecutor for the Coweta County Juvenile Court and as a certified Child Support Guardian Ad Litem for the 6th Judicial District of Georgia.


I am also a regular presenter for the Fayette County Family Law Clinic.

  • Brian Wesley Craig

    I referred a domestic relations case to Brian not too long ago as the client lived in the Coweta County area. The client recently told me what a great job Brian did representing him through his divorce. He said Brian knew when to be aggressive, but also knew when to let up to promote settlement. I will definitely be referring other clients to Brian.
