Accuracy, Wisdom and Speed
Elyssa Williams, the best lawyer I have ever worked with in the most difficult time, season, climate, and situation in my life. She is the most compassionate, kind, professional, skillful, masterful, beautiful, prompt, no nonsense, dignified, caring, patient, detailed, intelligent lawyer that I have met. My mother died from grief and poor help days before I called, my mind and heart was so overwhelmed I could hardly construct a sentence to communicate. But in my heart, and in memory of my mother, I just wanted a chance to live beyond my mistakes--a second chance. Within minutes of speaking with her and giving her the details of what I needed, despite what I was owed, she translated and interpreted my words with ease, accuracy, wisdom and speed. By the following week, my hope increased. During the process, I experienced her care and compassion for people during every conversation. She always answered my calls and always returned them promptly giving me her expert advice and encouraging me along the way. If you're looking for a lawyer during this PANDEMIC she will help make things better, not worst.

Efficient and reasoneable
We have used Elyssa for our uncontested divorced and it want very smoothly. Elyssa asked for all the necessary information and produce the documents fast, she re-checked all the information and enquirer when a doubt. Her fees were also very reasonable. I thank Elyssa for being such thorough person and very honest. If I need to get another divorced (Hopefully not), I will choose her again without hesitation.

Fierce, protective advocate!
Having had experience with many lawyers over the years, Ms. Williams was easily one of the best! She listens and advises. She fights for your rights. She helped me through a very awkward divorce situation in a very short amount of time. She also helped me keep my ultimate goal in mind and not get caught up in the drama. I would highly recommend her her professional and caring services.

An Angel
I’ve spoken to several attorneys over the course of the last week and Elyssa was a breath of fresh air. She isn’t just professional but you can tell she truly cares. She went above and beyond with my request and offered me a light at the end of the tunnel when others were not. If you have an opportunity to consult with her or to work with her, I highly suggest you do. Thank you again Elyssa!

Highly recommend Elyssa
Elyssa is my attorney, and has helped me me through many of the difficult times as a divorced father. She was able to help me get primary custody of my son. Through the years she has been a great help in helping me decipher the noise of what is emotion vs. what is the law. I highly recommend her if you need family legal assistance.

very pleasant and honest
I called Elyssa for a phone consultation. She advised me of options and we ultimately decided that there were some other options I should explore before hiring her. This was honest and truly helpful advisement. I didn't feel like I was being sold on anything. Thanks again Elyssa!

My Emotional Rollercoaster Ride has Ended.
I had been going through a 3 year separation and had finally had enough of the emotional pain and confusion these situations bring. Elyssa was extremely professional and knowledgeable of what to do and how to do it. She made the situation as easy on me as it could be. The result is that I came out of the ordeal as unscathed as I had hoped I could be.

Simply Sensational Divorce Attorney
Ellysa Williams is absolutely the best Divorce Attorney that you could ask for. Personable, caring, incredibly professional, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. She worked my case and went over and above every expectation I could have imagined. Every detail was meticulously covered, from the initial consultation, down to handing the file to the courthouse.

Excellent divorce lawyer
Mrs. Williams was my attorney throughout a very difficult divorce and custody case. Her knowledge and experience with family law proceedings, performance in the courtroom, and overall representation were no less than outstanding. She helped me navigate several challenges to ultimately achieve a positive settlement that included more time with my children than initially expected. I would highly recommend her services to anyone involved in a contested divorce, particularly if you are a loving father who does not want to become an “every other weekend dad”.

Knowledgeable, Responsive, Tough
Elyssa was great to work with for custody matters. Very knowledgeable and made me feel strong when I felt scared, worried or nervous. She knew the law and helped me gain equal custody of my son.
Posted by Robert | March 4, 2014
Much better lawyer than all the others
Fast, Easy, Professional and kept me informed along the way. I've had a few attorneys that I've used for Family law and I wish I would have found Elyssa sooner. By far, she is better than any of the attorneys I've used in the past.

Assessment of Agreement
I received separation papers from an attorney in Virginia. The separation was mutually agreed but I choose to seek counsel to explain the terms and to advise me of significant issues. Ms. Williams set-up an appointment within a few days, reviewed the agreement while I waited, and provided explanations and significant issues. She was very efficient and I am well pleased with her work. I will use Ms. Williams for any future services.

Child custody case for male custodial parents
Elyssa was extremely professional and knowledgeable of Georgia laws concerning custodial matters. She led an aggressive campaign and fought for me to regain custody of my son. Walking out of the courts with a victory wasn't an easy task for a male parent yet Ms. Williams made it happen. ams

efficient and empathetic
Elyssa assisted with our adoption case. She was extremeley efficient, very responsive and most importantly, offered advice that was empathetic. That is, she was helpful in assisting us in understanding both sides of the case so we could better prepare and ultimately win.
