I needed legal support and hired Ms Bonton. Her knowledge of the law shows in her professionalism and through her expert advise. My case is still pending and my outcome looks VERY favorable.

Excellent Attorney
I needed to hire an out of state attorney regarding a child support contempt issue. Ms. Bonton treated me with the utmost respect and was very understanding. She followed through on everything she said, returned all my calls and always kept me updated on the case status. It was important for me to trust the attorney I hired (being out of state) and I have found that with Ms. Bonton. She is very professional and has done amazing work with my case. I would highly recommend her.

General Review
I have retained Georgia Bonton to represent me on several ________civil_______ cases. She has a vast knowledge of ___the law__. She produces good results and I will keep using her as my attorney. She is an experienced lawyer who brings insight and diligence to each case. I hired her recently and I will hire her again. I retained Ms. Bonton as my lawyer as she guided me through a two year custody battle. She obtained the best results for me. She was diligent, listened very well and made me feel like I was her only client, no matter how busy she was.

do not hire. Beware
My experience with Mrs. Bonton was horrible. I give her no stars in this report. I hired her on a Friday paid her $650.00 (of the $1,300) retainer fee. I fired her by Tuesday. She doesn’t have an office. The address is a shared office suite. She uses to meet you. When we spoke on Friday she said she would consider taking both my cases. That she would send the other party in my case a letter stating she was my lawyer. I didn’t speak with her Monday. She called me Tuesday and informed me that she spoke with the other person in my case (child support) and offered to decrease my child support. I hired her to represent me in an increase in child support. I could not believe what I was hearing. Not only that, she wasn’t an appeals attorney and could not represent me in that part of my case. Why even say Friday that you would consider it. I stated that I wanted one lawyer to work both of my cases. I spent two days trying to hire a new attorney. I did get one attorney to take my case. Mrs. Bonton would not release the files I gave her until I paid the other half of the retainer fee. Plus she added expenses? Expenses for three days? Really? So I paid her. Then she did not want to give my new attorney the files either. They asked her to give me the files and she didn’t want to. When they asked her why she was objecting to releasing my files she finally relented. It took a week for her to return the files. I can’t tell you what to do but don’t bother hiring her. Is incompetent in my opinion.
