In my opinion, each case is unique to the situation. Depending on that situation, the attorney uses the gathered facts to best present the case. If an attorney advises a client a favorable action plan to support the case, I would accept that plan with considerable weight knowing that he/she knows best due to years of experience. It is also the responsibility of the client to follow the attorney's advice. Having done so, Sumner Riddick earned a favorable decision for my unique situation. I had a child out of wedlock in the state of Georgia. I was awarded primary custody. For the expense of a custody battle, Sumner Riddick was the best choice.

Sumner represented one of my best friends in a divorce and custody battle, and I feel compelled to sing his praises.
His mix of professionalism, intelligence, persistence, integrity and compassion makes him not just a great attorney, but a great partner you want by your side through one of the toughest journeys in life – divorce & custody.
Knowing that he was working on my friend's case gave me great peace of mind. He is untiring, he has your best interest at heart and he'll always tell you the truth. He was a saving grace in our lives.
With Sumner and his team, rest assured that you have the best and brightest by your side. They give you 100% of everything they have.
Thank you Sumner and team to your dedication to justice!

I have had the opportunity to both litigate domestic custody matters against Mr. Riddick and work with him as a guardian ad litem in a contested custody matter. As a domestic attorney, he is one of the few I know who brings to his advocacy both a high level of care and conscientiousness for his clients and their objectives and the formidable trial skills it takes to help them realize those objectives. He comes to court prepared and knows that the best way to achieve a settlement is to be prepared to try your client's case. As a guardian ad litem, I can state unequivocally that he was diligent in his research, talking to all parties who had facts to share, and he used this information and the credibility he built with both sides not only to form the basis of his report but to forge a consensus that allowed the parties to reach an amicable settlement. I recently referred another attorney to Mr. Riddick to serve as a GAL and their feedback has also been overwhelmingly positive.
