Fight your HOA
I had a problem with my HOA at my condo. They were going to hold up my sale. Blue and staff (Maggie) and others helped solve this problem in an expedited manner and at a fair price. I just wish I had retained him much earlier.

Top Notch Attorney
Blue Spruell has excellent knowledge of the law and is diplomatic in his approach. Because of his personal experience as a businessman, his knowledge, reliable analyses and informed advice make him an excellent strategist and a trusted advisor. He has a good understanding of nuance and balance. If needed, we would not hesitate to call upon him again.

Highly Ethical, knows the law well, and a rock of support!
I contacted Blue with The Outlaw Firm for advice on my marital dilemma. They have helped my family with legal issues in the past, with great success. My initial intent was to inform myself, but also to obtain the fair and unbiased advice based on my personal situation. Blue's advice was sound as well as supportive of my wishes and goals. His approach is an extremely ethical one, with great attention to detail. As a father himself, Blue was always mindful of a positive outcome for the impact on the family, even though our children are young adults. To have the advice of someone professional who has not only my best interest in mind but with the awareness of the whole family, was invaluable. Blue has an extremely high level of ethics, making him very trustworthy along with the end goal of preserving any integrity in the relationship as it relates to family dynamic. Blue is efficient with your time, returns calls and emails promptly, and has his clients best interest at heart. He is straightforward, but also extremely empathetic. As an attorney for divorce, one role implied is that of moral support and encouragement. In the midst of life major changing and frightening events, is your lawyer, weathering the storm with you. No one could have done a better job for me, and I am ever grateful to Blue, Shelby and the Outlaw Firm. I highly recommend them!

Blue and the Outlaw Law Firm
I am so grateful Blue and the Outlaw Law Firm was recommended to me. Blue helped me to understand the court process and was successful at settling my case. They kept me up to date on my case and despite my ex trying to make our case as long as possible Blue ensured it was handled promptly.

Looking for strategy and someone who cares what's best for you? Hire Blue
Two and a half years ago I went through a very ugly divorce. I first hired a cheaper attorney thinking nothing could go wrong because I was a mother of two dealing with a non fault divorce. Long story short, I ended up in court with a controversial judge, who took away custody of my kids, made me pay a high child support fee and accused me of not having time for my kids since I was the bread winner. I fired my attorney at the spot and hired Blue. He worked very differently from my previous attorney. He knew who the judge was and built a strategy around that. He analyzed every aspect of my case and created a plan in which my ex was forced to mediate. My case was not easy and I had to deal with lots of bumps along the way, but Blue was always there for me - nights and weekends - always available and giving me the best advice to deal with each situation. I ended up with split custody and everything worked out at the end. I highly recommend Blue for his work ethics, knowledge of the law and GA judges and guardians, experience and devotion to his clients. My only regret is not hiring Blue when I first filed for divorce. It would have saved me thousands of dollars and spared my small children the trauma from being taken away from me for several months.

My first attorney experience...A great first impression!
I was recommended to Blue by a friend. From the first meeting, I knew I'd chosen the right attorney. Going through a divorce was traumatic for me; both emotionally and financially. Throughout this process, Blue was compassionate, attentive, accommodating, knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and understanding. He also has a great team who was very helpful as well; scheduling appointments, answering questions, returning phone calls, and most of all, working with me regarding payments. I was more than pleased working with Blue, and the outcome of my case. I would recommend Blue whole-heartedly!!!!

Expert Legal Defense... with a HEART
Don't let the "HEART" fool you... Blue aggressively defended me when I was faced with a false protective order, and he was the only attorney who cared enough in a FREE CONSULTATION to actually read ALL 3 PAGES of an initial response I had prepared for my case. He knows the ins-and-outs of complex legal issues and he quickly identified weak areas in the claims against me. Even though the odds of prevailing were not in my favor, Blue was so thoroughly prepared at the hearing that he got the opposing lawyer to convince my ex to agree to dismiss the case. I highly recommend him to anyone facing a difficult legal challenge... he's True Blue in my book.

Good Guide Through Divorce
Divorce is a difficult process, especially, like most, you have not been through it before. Blue and his team were invaluable in providing guidance throughout and helped stave off some issues that could have become significant. Blue is truly a wise and caring advocate who will get you through.

Very professional and compassionate
I have known Mr. Blue Spruell and his family for 18 years. He is very professional in manners and has great work ethics. He always strives to do what is right, especially when it comes to his clients. He once helped me resolve a very stressful matter that I was unsuccessfully dealing with myself. Not only did Mr. Spruell quickly resolve the problem, but he also made me feel like he was on my team fighting for me, so I no longer had to worry about it. I would definitely recommend Mr. Spruell to anyone who needs an attorney.

Recommended without exception...
What can I say? Mr. Spruell and his team provided the most genuine, honest and thoughtful representation in my most recent custody dispute. The integrity demonstrated by this group is something I have never experienced with any other family law practice, or law practice of any kind for that matter. I can honestly say I consider them family. They are life savers, caring listeners, and the only law practice I would ever recommend. The personal attention and dedication is unparalleled. I am truly grateful our paths crossed.

Thoughtful, thorough, ethical.
Mr. Spruell and the Outlaw Firm have provided me with legal advice for over a decade, particularly with regard to estate planning. Blue is the most diligent and fair-minded attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is both responsive and proactive. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Trustworthy and dependable
I retained The Outlaw Firm for a domestic matter, and my only regret is that I did not do it sooner. Blue quickly and accurately assessed the situation and the personalities involved, and his advice was excellent. He was clear about what my options were, and he always encouraged me to take the options that were best for me legally, financially and ethically. Indeed, I was reminded of why lawyers are referred to as “counsel,” as Blue’s counsel was solid and dependable. I found Blue and his staff to be courteous, thoughtful and responsive from the beginning through the entire process. I was treated with respect and warmth, my questions were always answered quickly, and all billable matters were dealt with as efficiently and effectively as possible. If your personal ethics and moral code matter to you and if you want an attorney who will be a true advocate, then Blue is an excellent choice.

Helpful explaining possibilities
I worked with Mr. Spruell on several family matters and he was always careful to explain the consequences of my requests. Even more helpful was the time he took to explain what were more realistic expectations and what was simply not possible.
