About Me

Managing Attorney of Anthony M. Zezima, P.C., a Family Law firm in metropolitan Atlanta.  My office handles only Family Law matters.  We handle trial work in the metropolitan Atlanta area, including Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett, Cobb, Walton, Rockdale, Cherokee, Hall, Forsyth, Jackson, Douglas, Henry, Clayton, and Fayette Counties.  However, we handle appeals to the two Georgia appellate courts from any county in the state of Georgia.


I have been handling Family Law cases since 1983.  We do contested trials, both Judge and Jury.  We handle negotiated settlements and mediation, to arrive at the final result in the most efficient manner available.  You will not have to change attorneys to go from negotiation or mediation to a trial, if that becomes necessary.
