At Spooner and Associates, P.C., we put our clients first. Our objective is to efficiently resolve each case with our client's interests at the forefront of every decision. We are a firm of skilled litigators who are aggressive in the courtroom. However, when it is in our client's best interests, we can handle cases through negotiation or methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation.

We help our clients find a solution.

More About Scott:

Scott helps people avoid costly consequences when resolving disputes with a spouse, ex-spouse, or an insurance company. In a divorce, seemingly minor decisions made now may cause problems later. These problems can include obligations for someone else’s debts, loss of your property, or limited rights with your own children. Settling a personal injury case without legal guidance may leave you with an unfair settlement amount or responsibility for repaying your health insurer for your medical expenses. Nobody ever wants to have legal problems, but Scott guides you through the process and explains all your options for achieving the most favorable outcome.

Scott grew up in a small Georgia town where he valued his relationships with others. A “people person” at heart, Scott found that work at large law firms (with correspondingly large caseloads and billable hour requirements) didn’t allow him to provide personalized legal help for his clients. So in 2002, Scott started his law firm in Gwinnett County (Suwanee, Georgia) with a goal of providing individualized legal counsel to clients in all North Metro Atlanta counties. As demand for his personalized legal solutions increased, he grew the firm to include three additional attorneys and a staff of six paralegals and assistants. Everyone at Spooner & Associates, P.C. shares the same philosophy of service to clients. We maintain a selective caseload so that each client receives the attention they deserve.

Scott’s skills and experience are well-suited to assist you with issues involving family law and mediation. Having experienced divorce in his family, he is empathetic to anyone needing Georgia family law services. A skilled negotiator, Scott is an experienced mediator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution and helps resolve legal disputes. He also represents his clients in mediations and may avoid the expense and emotions of a divorce trial. However, if negotiations fail, he is an aggressive litigator when he protects his clients’ rights in a courtroom trial.

Scott enjoys spending time with his family and traveling to historic locations. Gettysburg, PA is a family favorite. Scott also supports youth education and is a member of the Board of Trustees for North Gwinnett Schools Foundation. With his dedication to his clients and family, Scott’s fantasy league baseball team has suffered in recent years.

Amazing Lawyer
I am so thankful for Scott Spooner and his staff. My case was a bit messy due to dealing with a complicated ex , I had initially hired two lawyers prior to Scott who could not get me any progress with my divorce. I began to feel hopeless and defeated by my ex who just did not want to negotiate or settle on anything. Finally, Scott was able to step in and help me. Scott is a very professional caring person with a lot of knowledge and experience which definitely showed in the court room. Thank you so much Scott and team for getting me through one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through. There was light at the end of it all and I thank them for giving me hope and endurance. God bless y’all!!!

High Conflict Custody Resolution
My family and I were in a high conflict custody case which included many layers of complications like physical abuse and substance abuse. I am very grateful for the help my family received from Spooner and Associates. Their service and compassion exceeded my expectations. Any time I needed them they were always responsive with a high level of professionalism. They really took a vested interest in our family’s case and made sure we got the very best outcome.

Thankful for Scott and his team!
In a nut shell I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to Scott Spooner and his team that not only helped me through a rough time but was very informative and quick to help me understand. Being my second divorce, this experience far outshined the first one with a different attorney. Scott and his team were there when I had questions and got me out in a very short time. Thank you cannot be said enough to Scott, Adrienne, Brook and Linda.......

Mr. Spooner and his team was awesome. Anyone that I needed to talk to was available and very supportive. Mr. Spooner heard and discussed my case patiently and in extreme detail. His associates (which I can’t name here) were great and were responsive. Their approach to the situation was knowledgeable. At every step of the case Mr. Spooner and his team was on top of things. Highly recommended.

In this day and time, reviews are the heartbeat of the way people see the world. I was recently faced with an extremely stressful situation and in dire need of a qualified expert to handle my case. After hours of research to choose the right person for the job, I chose Mr. Scott Spooner. He put my mind at ease and I knew he had the expert skills and determination to help me through all my questions. Once he started with my case I knew I had made the perfect decision and was rest assured I had hand- picked the BEST attorney for the job. His experience, knowledge and patience helped me stay at ease through my divorce and I am forever thankful. I am glad he helped guide me through this experience and I know I wouldn’t want anyone else by my side.

No one else I’d rather have in my corner!
I have known Scott Spooner for 16 years and can attest that you will never find another attorney with as much integrity, compassion, and dedication and Mr. Spooner. Mr. Spooner has represented my husband and me most recently in a step-parent adoption case, in which we terminated my son’s biological father’s rights, after nearly a decade of providing no care and support to my son, and then he continued to represent us in the step-parent adoption, where my husband adopted my son. Scott treated our case as if he were representing his own child. I felt as though he was personally vested in our case. He was responsive to questions and concerns. When I was worried, confused, or emotional, as many legal processes can make us, especially when it involves our children, he always took the time to explain the process and ease my concerns. He’s an excellent communicator and kept us well informed throughout our case. His office staff is equally supportive and easy to work with.

By far, the best attorney I could have asked for!
I was recently represented by Scott in a custody case and I could not have asked for a better attorney. Scott is very compassionate and kind, yet strategically firm. He was very quick to respond to my phone calls and always offered the guidance I needed to deal with my aggressive ex-husband. I felt confident every step of the way that Scott was going to get me the best possible outcome and he did not disappoint!

I could not have made a better decision in retaining Mr. Spooner and his firm as my divorce attorney. Mr. Spooner took on the task of representing me from 1000 miles away. He genuinely cared about the stress I was experiencing. I was amazed at how dedicated and caring he was. He counseled me properly and advised of the best approach to accomplish my goals. He was very attentive and extremely competent. He successfully negotiated a resolution despite contention between myself and my ex spouse. He was very prompt with e-mails and phone calls and always knew what to say to calm me down and settle my nerves. This was a military divorce which aren't always easy, but Mr. Spooner showed no fear and dove right in. Mr. Spooner always listens and provides fast, honest answers. I highly recommend Spooner and Associates as your next attorney!!!

Highly recommend Scott Spooner
Scott Spooner represented me in a lengthy divorce. Scott is patient and professional. He has a strong work ethic and is honest. He and his staff were very easy to reach any time I had questions. They were also proactive, keeping me well informed. I wanted a lawyer that would go after what was fair, and help guide me through what areas I needed to compromise. In an already stressful situation, Scott and his team provided a calm, considerate, and trustworthy atmosphere. I highly recommend him.

Worst experience ever
Only care about money and nothing else. Before anything else they keep asking for payments. They ever charge for internal emails sent between on another to ask for an update??? It’s a rip off. Don’t believe they’d refund you whatever is left of the retainer as they always make sure nothing is left.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Sep 12
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I met Scott several years ago when we were opposing counsel on a divorce case. Scott is very knowledgeable about numerous areas of law, is professional, and is quite personable and amicable without compromising his zealous representation of his clients. I referred a divorce client to him awhile back due to a conflict of interest I had in the matter. Scott did an outstanding job for the client, which was all the more impressive due to the fact that he had a hostile and ruthless opposing counsel in the case. The client was very happy with Scott and his tenacity helped seal an eventual favorable settlement. I've also used Scott as a mediator and he is an effective third party neutral. Finally, I have always found Scott to be quite honest and trustworthy and his word is his bond. Integrity is so important in the legal field and when I have Scott as an opposing counsel, I know there will be no issues of trust as the case progresses."

"I think highly of Scott Spooner and have referred him clients in the past. He has excellent skills in representing his clients to the fullest, and I would not hesitate to send clients to him in the future.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known and worked with Scott Spooner on various cases for nearly 20 years. You will not find a more ethical, honest and conscientious attorney. Scott gives devoted personal attention and takes a big picture view on what the client wants and needs to accomplish, rather than simply checking boxes in litigation. If you need assistance with any aspect of family law or litigation, I would recommend Scott without reservation."
