Assertive, intelligent family law attorney
Tamar is highly intelligent and very experienced in handling complex family law cases. I hired her because I could tell she would fight for me. I needed that. She is very confident and organized and I was impressed with her handling of my case. She helped me achieve a very fair and reasonable settlement.

A great attorney at convenient location
Divorce is an emotional topic especially when young children are involved. But excellent and easily understood legal advice is very important at a time like this. Having a good lawyer who can explain your options in a common sense approach is paramount at a time like this. Tamar has the experience to let you know how realistic your expectations or demands are. One of the best attributes she has is she listens to what your objectives are and relentlessly works to help you achieve them. Her extensive experience with divorce and child support allows her to give expert opinions on how best to maintain the welfare of the children and achieve workable solutions during a tough and emotional time. I highly recommend Tamar. She is the only attorney I have ever used in the last 25 years that I would recommend and want to use again. John

Very knowledgeable and honest Divorce attorney
Very impressed with Tamar, her knowledge about different aspects of modification of child support and alimony. She gave me straightforward and honest information to make an informed decision on how to proceed with modification of child support and weighing the possible outcome vs attorney fees. Her priority is what is in the best interest of the client.

Best lawyer
Tamar is amazing. She is passionate in helping people, and in fighting for justice and what is right. Tamar has a level of compassion that I have rarely seen in lawyers. Once she took over my case that was drug out almost 3 years, she was able to wrap it up quickly. I will forever be grateful for her, and I will always recommend her to other future clients.

Very respectable attorney
Tamar has the experience to let you know how realistic your expectations or demands are. One of the best attributes she has is she listens to what your objectives are and relentlessly works to help you achieve them. She gives you her legal advice and wether or not you follow she will do everything she can to get the best outcome. She is very kind, sweet, a great listener. She will listen to you and not direct you what to do other wise let you direct her in what YOU WANT. Which is just another attribution I love about Ms. Tamar. She will not push you and she will let you tell her what you want and need from her and she does a wonderful job trying to achieve what you ask her to. She takes great care of her clients and really focuses on trying to make it an easy process during divorce and child custody cases. Very, pleased with Ms. Tamar.

Tamar was not only my divorce attorney, but a tireless advocate for what was in the best interest of my children and myself.
Ms. Faulhaber represented me in what was my second and final attempt to leave my marriage. With the clarity of hindsight I can see where her knowledge of the law, her passion for doing what is right, and believing in and advocating for her clients is why my children and I are thriving today. She works tirelessly to find answers to problems that seem hopeless. She does not back down or pander to opposing counsel when she knows it will not serve her client's best interest. My respect, admiration, and gratitude for Ms. Faulhaber and her staff cannot fully be expressed in an online review I can only say that there is no one else I would trust more with any family law issue.

Best divorce attorney in Georgia!
Ms.Tamar Faulhaber is without a doubt the best divorce attorney in Georgia. She went above and beyond to fight for me during the 3 continuous years of my very difficult and complicated divorce case, which we won. She is a kind, calm, and very honest attorney who listens and treats her clients with a lot of compassion, and she truly cares. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a great attorney.

Highly Recommended!
I rarely give out 5 stars but I found no category to give less. I was in the middle of a custody case and was very unsatisfied with previous lawyers responsiveness, professionalism, and I did not even know what our strategy would be. So I decided to seek new counsel. From our first conversation, I knew that I felt comfortable with Tamar as my lawyer. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and did not pressure me to make the change. I am glad that I did. Not just because we won the case, but because she went above and beyond what I feel any ordinary attorney would in the rating categories on here. Trustworthy because she gave it to me straight and explained both sides of the situation. Responsiveness because she would answer my emails and calls within a reasonable time frame no matter what time of day or night. Knowledgeable because we came up with a good plan of action and I was well prepared for trial. Kept me informed because she sent me weekly updates and let me know what was going on before having to ask. My overall rating should be more than 5 stars because I felt like Tamar had a personal interest in my case. I am very happy with the outcome of my case and highly recommend Tamar's excellent legal services.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jul 11
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I usually wouldn’t respond to a review of another attorney, but the review posted by Ms. Faulhaber’s client on July 9th is inaccurate. I was opposing counsel and not privy to any of their communication; however, I did attend the mediation session in question. Ms. Faulhaber was a zealous advocate for a difficult client. The mediation was initially postponed because of a jury trial in another county. We couldn’t reschedule because Jeff chose to leave the country. The case came very close to settlement several times, but no settlement was reached because he refused to pay any reasonable amount of child support. At mediation, a 50/50 schedule was proposed, but no agreement could be reached on child support. What Jeff omitted was the $1M+ of the marital estate squandered on day-trading or the multiple affairs which ultimately caused the separation. Finally, his decision to fire his counsel resulted in the unfavorable ruling. Ms. Faulhaber’s client was the architect of his own demise."
