  • Amy Kathryn Waggoner

    Ms. Hastings is one of the most skilled and professional family lawyers in Georgia. I have worked with her on many cases and always found her to be an excellent strategist and courtroom attorney. In addition, she has a strong commitment to helping the client get the best possible result, whether through litigation, negotiation, or collaboration. I highly recommend her.

  • Eileen Jacqueline Shuman

    Ms. Hastings is an excellent attorney. Working on a case with Ms. Hastings always results in effective and efficient resolution of a case, no matter how complex the issues. It is of utmost importance to clients in a divorce or family law situation to have an attorney who is respected by attorneys, judges, and court professionals working in the community. Ms. Hastings is well respected and ethical. I am always pleased when she is on the opposite side of the table from me in a case because I know I can trust her and I know that she will work hard to ensure that a divorce case or family law related case is resolved with the clients best interests as the center and focus of the resolution. I recommend Ms. Hastings.
