From a Totally Satisfied Client
If you’re looking for a very capable lawyer, then I highly recommend Mr. Stephen M. Gibbs. Mr. Gibbs has helped me get through a divorce and all the various documents and data required, make my will, living will (Georgia Advance Directive for Healthcare), and Power of Attorney documents. While working with Mr. Gibbs I was very impressed with his analytical skills, judgment, creativity, research and interpersonal skills, logical thinking ability, and communication skills. His ability to explain legal terminology, processes, and requirements to non-legal minds (like mine), enabled me to feel relaxed, and participate fully in the complicated legal processes and requirements. Mr. Gibbs is the lawyer who I speak with first on any legal matter.

Honest and Trustworthy
Steve has been my lawyer through a contentious divorce and custody battle. I have been impressed with his attention to detail and his honest, trustworthy approach. He has always considered the needs of my children and helped me to do the same. I've been forced to appear in court four times through this process and each time Steve was prepared and had the necessary documents and/or case law to be able to support my case. I've been very happy with the work that Steve has done for me.

Highly recommend Steve Gibbs
Steve represented me for over ten years in a complicated family law case. Honestly I can't envision a situation where I could have been better represented. Not only did he bring a long history of legal experience to the table, but he was also accessible and responsive to my needs. He is also a great resource in the Atlanta community. He knows the system well, is familiar with many judges and helped me anticipate what to expect step by step as we navigated the complicated legal system.
