Are looking for an attorney that will work for you and get the results you want? Then Wendi Armstrong should be your choice!!!
Not only have I used Mrs. Armstrong to represent me personally, I have referred her to several friends and family members. She handled all cases professionally and efficiently.

Hire Wendi!
I met Wendi in 2013. I was dealing w/ a very sensitive case w/ my Juvenile son & needed a good attorney. I was recommended several attorneys through people in the community but came across Wendi's name twice. The 1st thing that caught my attention is she's very personable & responsive. I found she handles a lot of her own emails & phone calls directly. She was able to meet w/ us in a timely manner which was a piece of mind, I appreciate that she's down to earth & I found her prices to be fair. She's handled several matters for me since including traffic court. She's an incredible asset to the Conyers community & seems to have a good rapport w/ the Judges & DA's office which I hear is good too. I'd hire her over & over & most definitely recommend her every chance I get!

HELP IS HERE
Wendy is on top of her game. She is very considerate of your time and of your witnesses time. She did what she said she would do, making this bad situation go away for a reasonable fee. I would highly recommend Wendy for any legality that you should encounter.

DUI Case
Highly recommend Wendi. I was charged with DUI and failure to maintain lane. Blood sample was twice the legal limit and the video evidence was not in my favor. Wendi was able to get the DUI reduced to reckless driving and the ticket thrown out which was the absolute best case scenario. She is very knowledgeable and she fully explained all possibilities so I was prepared going in. Was able to additionally save points on my license. I gladly took conditions of probation considering the alternative. Having an experienced lawyer was well worth it. Would refer her to anyone faced with DUI.

The only attorney I will ever use!! Highest recommendation!!
Wendi Armstrong is the only attorney I will ever use. She handled my divorce and made the experience as painless as possible and did so with so much compassion. She answered all my questions thoroughly and promptly. She helped me navigate the complicated QDRO process and ensured that I was taken care of in every way. Wendi made it very clear that I was a priority and she would fight for me and make sure I was treated fairly. It was very comforting to know I had such wonderful support and I trusted, without hesitation, every move she made on my behalf. Divorce isn’t easy or fun, but Wendi made it bearable with her professionalism and her dedication. Recently, a friend who had a legal matter in criminal court needed representation and I recommended Wendi right away. She was right there again, taking the case, going above and beyond, making a stressful situation easier. She handled that matter swiftly and with a favorable resolution. There is nothing she can’t handle! If you need any kind of legal representation, hiring Wendi Armstrong is the smartest decision you’ll make. I can not recommend her enough. She is an asset to her community and a fantastic attorney!

Wendi Armstrong Review
I hired Mrs. Armstrong in 2017 to represent me in a criminal case; from the time she was hired, to the time my case was closed, she was nothing short of amazing. Mrs. Armstrong always made herself available to answer my questions and made the entire process as painless as it could be. She has an excellent reputation in the Rockdale Court system and worked with all of her connections to ensure my case was properly handled. I highly recommend Mrs. Armstrong as her personal approach, knowledge of the law and reputation in the community really showed in her ability to streamline my case and get the best results.

I hired Wendi at first for a family relative, I was scared and clueless and she guided me with such patience. She was very reassuring and communicated every step of each process. We had much better results than expected with the case as well. I then hired her for my own affairs and she exceeded my expectations once again! Not only is she a great attorney but a wonderful person to know.

DO NOT HANDLE YOUR PROBLEMS ALONE...HIRE WENDI!!!!!
I was involved in a somewhat unusual traffic violation case. Ms. Armstrong went above and beyond to ensure that I received the best possible outcome!!! An outcome that did not even seem possible. I would strongly recommend hiring Ms. Armstrong. You will be glad that you did. If ever I must return to court, I will make certain that she is on my side!

Professional attorney that delivers desired results!
I've used Wendi on several occasions for family law matters. Having a professional law enforcement background, I've seen my fair share of not so professional or case prepared attorneys. Wendi has always been prepared in advance for my court preceding's. She has always made herself available by phone or for meetings that I have requested. Wendi truly is compassionate about her work and the clients that she represents. I've witnessed Wendi in both civil and criminal cases. I'm 100% satisfied with my choice of using Wendi as my attorney.

Professional and Experienced
I’ve known Wendi for well over a decade and had dealings both professional and personal. She offered her services to me during a divorce/custody case several years ago and I received above average results. She is well versed in Georgia law, both civil and criminal. She is highly regarded in the community and in her profession. Request a consultation. You won’t be disappointed.

My hero
In 2014 I got in trouble for a severe drug charge and was facing up to 30 years in prison . The recommended minimum sentence was 5 to 15 years with a max of up to 30. Wendy not only got me a bond after being denied at my first bond hearing she also was able to convince to judge to allow me to go to rehab instead of prison . She was able to get my charges reduced and made it where I could actually get the help that I needed for my drug addiction . Wendy was also very helpful when my daughter ended up getting 2 dui within a year in 2 different counts. She was able to get the charges reduced to reckless driving and my daughter didnt loose her liscense. She was able to get the help she needed because part of her sentence was to complete an alcohol and drug treatment program along with the defensive driving class and community service and a few weekends in jail. She made it possible for us both to not ruin our lives because of our poor life choices . I have complete confidence in her ability as a lawyer and feel she is well worth her fee.

Above and Beyond
I came across Wendi Armstrong on this site while searching for a criminal attorney- I had a rather unusual case where I had a restitution that my grandma wanted to drop. Coming to Wendi stating the victim wanted to drop the restitution- didn’t happen everyday. She proceeded with the process and Wendi stands here ground in court. She is there and she fights for you. I have nothing but postive things to say about her. I love the fact she calls you personally, and E mails you. I have since then hired her for another thing to handle in court- she got it done no problem.

Professional
I hired Mrs. Armstrong in 2016 to file for divorce. It was considered contested because he didn't sign the papers. I did ask lots of questions, and she was very responsive and quick to reply. It took over a year to have the divorce finalized. I feel that she did a wonderful job with doing exactly as I had wanted. The only thing is that after I paid her the retainer, and the divorce was final, she sent me a bill for additional hours spent on my case. I think it was to keep me from asking her more questions, but it was my first experience going through a divorce with children. Overall, she was a very great attorney, and I would refer her to anyone. She is very knowledgeable in her practice and gets the best outcome for her clients. She knows what to say and what to ask, and even the judge complimented that I had a very prepared attorney and that she did a great job handling my case. I really can't complain! :)

I hired Ms. Armstrong to handle my divorce and it was the best decision I made. She is smart, thoughtful, and brought a very human approach to a really difficult situation. She was honest with her assessment, my options and expectations throughout the process. She would be an excellent choice for a divorce attorney.

The Best Attorney
Mrs. Armstrong was very professional and if I had any questions was very knowledgeable of the answers I was looking for concerning my divorce and my legal rights. I would gladly refer her to family and friends. Anytime I called the office she was very available at all times. She made me feel confident in the decisions I had to make during my divorce.
