  • Judith M. Becker

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Emily ("Sandy") Bair for over 30 years. I recently recommended her to represent one of the most important people in my world --- my own child --- in a hotly contested divorce and child custody matter. She did an incredible job--- kept her head when all about her were losing theirs, and produced an amazingly just result in a reasonable period of time. Calm, competent, and expert in what she does. One cannot ask for more. I would refer any client of mine in the Atlanta area to her, knowing that client would be in good hands.
