TRIAL LAWYER, PROSECUTOR, FORMER POLICE OFFICER EXPERIENCE THAT YOU CAN TRUST,PART-TIME JUDGE.

I began my career in asset protection while attending Georgia State University on a Golf Scholarship. I then worked as a Police Officer at night while attending Law School during the day. I then worked as a prosecutor for a short time in Forsyth County. I opened my practice in Aug of 2003 and have been practicing in North Georgia since that time. I was also able to gain some experience as a fill in Judge for the Juvenile Court of Forsyth County.

 

My practice has always operated with the desire to help my clients through whatever situation they have found themselves in by standing with them to deal with the problem. I have seen the legal system from a number of unique vantage points and this always is something that I can use to the benefit of my clients.

 

I have lived in Georgia my whole life. I have a great wife and two wonderful kids.

Great lawyer
Kyle was nothing but amazing to have as my lawyer! He always answered every question I had (which was a lot) and made sure I was up to date with everything going on. Always took time to calm me down and reassure me what he was saying was going to happen, happen. He's not only a great lawyer but he's a great guy and made me always feel comfortable and calm and easy to talk to. He kept me in his best interest and made my case as easy as it could be! I'm very lucky to of had him as my lawyer! He's the best!

Kyle is amazing
My son was arrested for DUI. Based on a recommendation, I hired Kyle. He was very attentive and detail oriented. He took the time to listen to my son and walk him through the process. Kyle is extremely knowledgeable about the court system and very professional. He achieved an excellent result for my son's case. I highly recommend hiring Kyle. You can't go wrong.

The Hodge Family Approves
Attorney Kyle Epps and his legal team provided exceptional assistance across multiple cases. Epps's direct approach ensured clear communication and straightforward guidance at every turn. What truly stood out was their caring and dedicated manner—they went above and beyond to support me throughout each case. Their commitment to achieving the best outcomes was unwavering, leaving no detail overlooked. I'm immensely grateful for their expertise and professionalism, and I highly recommend Attorney Epps and his team to anyone seeking stellar legal representation.

An amazing attorney & team
I can’t thank Mr Epps and his firm for the wonderful job they did for my son. We left court today in awe with the out come of his case. With looking at possible jail time and 3 years probation he walked away with one year probation and his record will be cleared once completed. Mr Epps has represented other family members as well with great out comes. I definitely recommend Mr Epps and his firm if your in need of an attorney. He not only stands up to bat for you but treats you like family.

Results better than expected!
Shocked! There is no other way than to put. Attorney Epps represented me in a Hall County case. I was facing some pretty serious fines and possibly even probation. On the day of court, Attorney Epps showed up and showed out! He met with the solicitor, argued my side, and got me a reasonable offer. I was able to pay my fine and walk on out of there in a position to put this case behind me. I am so glad I found him, and he is by far the best at what he does! Thank you for taking my case and helping me put this case in my rearview mirror.

Would hire again.
It takes a lot to impress me in this world, but I would highly recommend Mr. Epps for any case involving the complexity of DFCs, child advocate atty, and prosecuting officials when you have been or will be facing separation from your children. When it became apparent the initial atty that I hired to secure the return of our children to our home was incapable of doing the job, I hired Mr. Epps who secured the return of our children in ten days. After that he gave straight advice on my pending criminal charges weighing pros and cons of the prosecutors offer to pled to lesser charges which I agreed to. I would hire Mr. Epps again.

BEST DEFENSE LAWYER IN FORSYTH - CHARGES DISMISSED
NO OTHER ATTORNEY IN FORSYTH COMPARES TO MR. EPPS! Attorney Epps is the best lawyer I have experienced. I had not been in trouble with the law before, and was nervous to say the least. Mr. Epps addressed my concerns with empathy and compassion. He is fair and just. Working with him was an absolute pleasure, which is ironic because I needed him a difficult time. Elicia Davis and his office staff are kind, caring, and prompt with communication. Attorney Epps did what he said he could do, which was clear my name. I consulted so many attorneys and with one consultation knew that Mr. Epps would be the person that I would hire. It must be noted that even during the holidays, under strict time constraints, Mr. Epps and Elicia worked hard to clear my name and save my career. If ever I need an attorney again, I WILL use Mr. Epps. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor, hire Mr. Epps and his team! You will NOT regret it. As others have said, Forsyth is very rigid. If ever you find yourself needing a defense attorney.. HIRE MR. EPPS!

Great Outcome for my DUI Case
I hired attorney Kyle Epps based on the reviews I saw on AVVO and he and his team did not disappoint. 1. The team and attorney Epps were very knowledgeable about the situation, what can happen, what my options were. 2. The documentation process was fantastic and easy. 3. Since it was a very stressful situation for me, I needed some feedback about the timing and possible issues. The team was great about giving me timely feedback. Reminding me with my hearing dates and what needed to be prepared. 4. The 2 hearings Attorney Epps handled with expertise and made the case for me. 5. The outcome was way better than I expected. I'd recommend this team to everyone who needs a lawyer.

Minimizing the damage of a one-time mistake with charges against me
Kyle Epps helped negotiate and minimize a mistake made by me caused by something done to me by a customer of mine. I was in an accident and charges against me were minimized by the court based on his expert representation and negotiation. I highly recommend his legal guidance and expertise if you find yourself in legal trouble.

A tough and very experienced lawyer
It is always in your best interest to get the most experienced defense attorney you can and one that is the most familiar with the area your charges are in. Especially when you are charged with anything(no matter how seemingly minor) in Forsyth County. Beware of getting in any legal trouble purposely or not here. They are not very negotiable. Thankfully I had Kyle in my corner to at least get one of my charges dropped and negotiate sentencing for the second. He has a wide range of experience in the legal system, especially in Forsyth. Again, do not get in any trouble in Forsyth, especially involving a local if you are not one. If you do get in trouble in this county, do not expect an understanding prosecution. In most places, but especially in Forsyth , all they care about is padding the number of convictions they get. Contact this law firm if you do get in trouble. You may be shocked at the rigidness in Forsyth, but Mr. Epps will be your best shot at defense and negotiations with the prosecution. I’m glad I made the right choice!!!

Best possible scenario
I hired Mr. Epps after some research and I am so glad I did.. Mr. Epps not only resolved my case with the best possible outcome, but he was always available to answer any questions I had and walk me through the entire process. I would definitely recommend Kyle Epps to anyone needing a lawyer.

Exceptional outcome
Our son made a stupid mistake. Attorney Epps helped give him a second chance. He and his team went above & beyond our expectations. We are forever grateful. Although we hope we never need his services again, if we do or if anyone we know does we'll definitely call Attorney Epps again.

Highly Recommend
Our interaction with Mr. Epps has been outstanding. His background and experience makes him the perfect attorney for minors in need of guidance through the legal process. He counseled our son, provided encouragement, reassurance & wisdom (not to mention the perfect balance of stern, direct & much-needed direction on future behavior). I couldn't be more thankful he came into our family's life at just the right time.
