Posted by Carter, a Criminal Defense client,
I had a criminal case that, while not a huge matter in the scope of things, was extremely important to me. This issue required a fair amount of research and negotiation with the prosecutor. As soon as I met April and her team I knew I had made the correct selection. April was attentive during our initial meeting and displayed real empathy with my situation. She explained the pros and cons of my options. Working through the selected course of action took six months and during that time April kept me informed of changes, developments, etc. I was pleased with the communication! At our first meeting she suggested some actions I might take to bolster my bargaining position and I am glad I followed her advice. The case was just resolved today and the outcome was exactly what I had hoped for. April makes you feel that she is truly interested in helping you with your situation, the personal attention was appreciated. If you are looking for excellent, attentive representation, I am pleased to recommend April Stancliff

After a 4 year ordeal trying to reinstate my drivers license, April succeeded where others failed. Tenacious and courteous, she did a great job of keeping me informed of every new development and detail. I would not hesitate to recommend April to anyone that needs a lawyer! Thanks so much for getting my freedom back April!

Let me begin by saying I only had the pleasure of working with April for a few weeks but I absolutely do not know what I would have done with out her. You will not only get a knowledgeable and exceptionally dedicated person, you will get true compassion for whatever you might be going through at the time. There was never a time when I left a message or wrote an email that I had to wait more than ten minutes for a response no matter what time of day or night it was. Even if your emotions get the best of you she truly understands and will always have such patience and understanding. During one of the hardest times of my life I never felt like I was talking to a lawyer, I felt like I was talking to a friend. That is how comfortable she makes you feel with her. I have been honored to work with her during her earlier years as a lawyer because I have no doubt in my mind that she will soon be one of the best lawyers in the Atlanta area. Thank you April for all you have done for me :).

Posted by a Child Support client,
Ms. Stancliff helped me with a child support modification. From our first conversation on the phone she was very campassionate, professional and thorough in her questions. I felt I was in great hands. When we meet in person, my first impression was correct. Over the time it took to prepare the case, Ms Stancliff stayed the same way. If I had questions she answered the same day, always professional and never judgemental. This was my first experience with a lawyer so I didn't know what to expect. Ms. Stancliff was flexible with my work hours and came to me if she needed to pick up paperwork or drop it off. A.S., explained things that I did not understand in terms or in text that I was able to comprehend. My conversations with Ms. Stancliff never once made me feel nervous or incompetent.
The day before the trial, we met to review the case, and I was very impressed with Ms. Stancliff's research, organizational skills, and the knowledge of my case. The day of the trial I was confidient in Ms.Stancliff ablility to protray my case to the judge. Again, I was not wrong with my confidience in Ms. Stancliff abilities. A.S, had all her questions, and supporting documents ready. I was awarded a modification to my child support from all of the supporting document and Ms. Stancliff's professionalism.
As a new lawyer I could since a little nervousness but that goes with doing anything new. It's good to be nervous, it shows you care about the outcome. Ms.Stancliff is on her way to becoming an exceptional lawyer. If I was to ever need or knew of anyone in need of a lawyer I would defiantly recommend Ms April Stancliff.

I hired April to help me with a traffic violation. She was extremely thorough and professional. She treated my case with the utmost importance. I was satisfied with the outcome and would definitely recommend her to others.

April is enthusiastic, professional, and commands a solid understanding of the law. She sets realistic expectations, works diligently, and asks thorough questions to ensure she has detailed understanding of events.
One of the most important traits that cannot be emphasized enough is that she is responsive and has a strong work ethic. She will work weekends to get the job done.

First and foremost, April conveys both kindness and empathy. In my case, I was faced with the unfamiliar and wholly dependent on an individual with whom I had no prior relationship. Her uncontrived sincerity (almost redundant, I know, but it's how I felt) put me at ease.
During my proceedings, April imparted a sense of professionalism that was unmatched in the courtroom. (This means something; the place was teeming with attorneys.) She worked to negoiate a plea agreement for my specific matter that probably represented the best outcome for anyone facing my specific or similar charges that day.
Succinctly, April put me at ease almost immediately; she validated this with her knowledge, candor, professionalism, and performance. She's a rising star working for a first-rate outfit. I recommend her without hesitation.
