Thank you for visiting my Avvo profile.
I am an attorney as well as a divorced father of two young children and I specialize in all aspects of family law including divorce, child custody, child support, modifications of custody and support, paternity, legitimation, temporary protective orders, contempt of court orders, parental rights, adoption, and more.
My unique background as a single father gives me a great understanding of my clients and the challenges they face. I know what they are going through and how they feel because I've been through it, as well, and I inherently understand the necessity of being a caring, expert advocate for others going through this painful process.
I will help you get through whatever family law situation you are facing, and I'm here to protect your and your children's rights as well as help you deal with the emotional aspects of it all. I understand it firsthand, having dealt with it in my own life.
Compassionate North Atlanta Divorce Attorney
I founded Hecht Family Law to be able to help clients who are going through some of life’s toughest times, bringing to my position as an Atlanta divorce attorney an understanding of what it’s like to be in their shoes because I've also been through a divorce with children, pay child support, and have dealt with alimony and child custody issues in my own life. I'm admitted to practice in all Georgia courts (including the Georgia Appeals Court and the Georgia Supreme Court). As a loving, devoted father to two young children (a boy and a girl), I understand the sensitivities involved in helping people who need to be able to co-parent in the raising of their children for years after their marriage ends.
I make a point of being available to my clients when they need me most, even outside normal business hours, because I understand that in family law, divorce, child custody and child support matters, your needs don’t always fit within the confines of the working day. My clients receive my personal cell phone number so they may call or text me whenever I am needed-including nights and weekends! I'm passionate in my commitment to my clients, patient in helping them understand the big picture as well as the intricacies, and am an enthusiastic advocate for all who have my representation.
If you are facing a legal issue regarding divorce, child custody, child support, modification of custody, modification of child support, contempt of a court order, adoption, alimony, or any of the numerous other family law practice areas that Hecht Family Law services, please call me at or email me at. I am happy to speak with you by phone or schedule a consultation with you in my office so that I can help you undertand and deal with whatever family law issue you’re facing in a way that provides the optimal result for you.
