Mr. Abernathy is very knowledgeable about family law, professional, punctual, and most importantly loves his job. I always recieved a response from him in a timely manner whenever I had any questions. I never felt like I was just a paycheck but that I had a friend in my corner fighting for the best interest of my family.
Jeremy helped me out there I was in a very bad accident he help me deal with the insurance and all the bills and everything that was coming at me and then he turned around and help me with my divorce Jeremy was a great joke.
I had two seperate child support cases In which I fell behind drastically due to lack of employment. Attorney Abernathy fought to allow me to get set up payment plans without the state suspending my license like they normally would. He worked hard to fight for me and unlike others I contacted wasn't trying to charge me an enormous fee. I respect him not only as my lawyer but as someone I could rely on in my times of need.
I had put off doing a will for so long because i thought it was going to be very expensive but i was pleasantly pleased with the affordable price. Mr. Abernathy was highly recommended. He was professional and very knowledgeable. The will was done in a timely manner. If I ever have the need for legal advice again i will call him.
Mr. Abernathy successfully represented me in three cases:
1: Criminal defense of my son.
2: Change of custody for my son to grant me full custody.
3: Alimony modification.
I am satisfied with the results in all three cases.
I believe that Mr. Abernathy listened when I voiced concerns, he corrected me when my reasoning was not going to lead to a productive outcome and after exploring multiple approaches, he selected the most effective strategy and executed brilliantly.
At trial what I found most impressive is that Mr. Abernathy seemed to have materials prepared to enable him to respond to any direction the trial could take. Mr. Abernathy has my full confidence and I would not hesitate to seek his representation again.
Mr. Abernathy wrote wills for my wife and I. He answered phone calls and was extremely responsive to all questions that I had. I relieved my apprehensions about dealing with lawyers. I highly recommend him for your legal needs.
Beware of this "attorney!" I hired him to resolve my interstate custody issue which was a matter of safety for my child. He filed a petition and failed to get a court date. When I pressed the issue on when we would go to court, he filed yet another petition but didn't hire a process server until a week before the court date. For weeks he told me he had. When I asked for the name of the company, he couldn't produce it. The day after that discussion he asked for my ex-husband's contact information to give to the process server. When I arrived in Georgia for court, he had not filed the affidavit of service so nothing took place. Then he had the audacity to ask for more money. When I refused to pay him more because he had never even appeared in court for the first $5,000 and had only written two petitions, he filed a third document in court without my review requesting the my ex-husband pay him the child support due to me. This guy does everything possible just to push paper. For months, he promised to contact opposing counsel in order to resolve the issues. He never did. Finally he emailed me saying he won't contact her because he doesn't trust her. He's the one that can't be trusted! He even refuses to return my files. But he will tell you he's praying for you...
We hired Mr. Abernathy after moving from GA to Indiana and the judge awarding temporary custody to the bio father, whom the child had never lived alone with (7 years old at the time). Mr. Abernathy diligently worked for months on our complicated case, yet ALWAYS kept us in the loop, and humbly, but confidently had a calming answer for any question we had. Me and my wife had his cell phone number and email, and any time we tried to contact him, he would answer or immidiately respond. After working tirelessly for us for 7 months, our little girl is back home with me and her mother, and her 3 year old brother (who was hurting just as bad as anyone that his sister wasn't at home anymore) where she belongs and wanted to be the whole time. If there were EVER an issue that needed representation from an outstanding family attorney, I would hire Mr. Abernathy 10 times out of 10. Thank you, Jeremy!
I hired Mr.Abernathy at the end of April 2014, He represented me in a long awaited contested divorce.He was
Very professional,Mr. Abernathy worked very hard to make sure I got just what I ask for in the settlement.
Everything was carried out in a speedy manor. I couldn't be any happier right now.thanks
I hired Jeremy for my Divorce and he was horrible. My Wife left me and his first strategy was to give away half of the marital portion of my 401K to my wife. He would not respond to my e-mails promptly and to make it worse he charged me for an hour for case law research the day after I discharged him and then refused to return that money to me. It was $800,00 down the drain and I had only hired him for 4 days!
