I was highly recommended by a friend who had used Judy King for his divorce and he was very happy with the end result.
I am a survivor of domestic abuse. He abandoned me and walked away from all responsibilities, leaving me with all the debt and no income. I tried several time to get a divorce on my own, filing with the Court but then he fled the State and went into hiding. I was hoping not to use an Attorney so that we both could go on with our lives without heartache and costs.
I was served divorce papers this April, 2016. I was extremely excited when the Police Officer delivered them thinking he had come to his senses and we could do a non-contested divorce. I was wrong. He still had his narcissistic personality and was out to get me.
My friend told me to call Judy King. As soon as I had my first consultation meeting with Judy, I knew she was the one for me. Judy got right to the point and explained all that was involved. Judy is a no-nonsense, go-getter who only deals with the facts and I immediately felt a sigh of relief. Judy and her assistant/paralegal Kristen are a great team. They walked me through the process of getting all the paperwork done and were very patient and understanding of my emotional state. Judy is extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly how to handle my case.
I am very thankful to have had Judy and Kristen on my team while going through such a stressful and emotional time. And, I can say now, that I am happily divorced with a most satisfactory result!!
If you are reading my review, stop looking now and call Judy King because she is the best Attorney you could hire :)

Judy King was recommended to me by one of the leading attorneys in Gwinnett County & did outstanding job for my family in both Gwinnett and Fulton Counties. Her legal fees were much less than the fees the well known and overpaid opposing attys from Atlanta charged my ex's family.

After 20+ years together, my wife filed for divorce claiming irreconcilable differences. She wanted to take my home, my children, my dignity, and wanted me to pay for it. I was given referrals from several people - Judy was mentioned more than once. From my initial meeting with her and her assistant (Kristen), I knew I would be in no better hands ... and I was right!
Divorce was the most terrifying, painful and stressful event I've ever had to go through. NO ONE could have protected me better than Judy King. She took the time to get to know me and my case and used her 30+ years of experience to build a strong strategy. She personified integrity through her honesty, and NEVER tried to create billable opportunities for the sake of extra fees. Every meeting/phone conversation had a purpose supporting the strategy of protecting me and my well-being.
Judy is a straight-shooter, which I admire. She's well-aware of how emotional and exhausting the divorce process can be. There were times when emotions got the better of me and I could've said or done something stupid or unreasonable out of spite for my ex-wife due to the incredible amount of stress from the process. During those times, Judy protected me from myself. Her entire focus was to get me the best settlement possible, and if she felt I might do/say something which would hurt our chances, she made sure to stop it.
Judy has a reputation for being extremely good in the courtroom - but that's not always needed. I wanted my ex-wife to SUFFER, as much as I was suffering. Judy made me realize that it's always better to get a good settlement that will allow you and your family to begin rebuilding your lives, rather than getting some form of revenge through the humiliation of a court proceeding (even if my ex-wife DID deserve it). Judy understands that life goes on beyond the divorce process, and that her clients need to be best positioned for that.
I titled this review "Saved my Life" because Judy King (and Kristen) DID SAVE MY LIFE. My divorce took a year, and at the beginning I was an emotional wreck. I couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, and was both emotionally and physically exhausted. I didn't want this divorce, neither did my children. I was being dragged kicking and screaming down a path I never wanted to travel. Now, a year later, I'm beginning to feel like myself again. Too often, divorce cases favor the wife, even when there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Judy built an extremely strong case, which eventually forced my ex-wife to settle out of court for what basically equated to slightly above the bare minimum the law would allow. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that had I chose another attorney, I would not be in the same financial, physical or emotional state I am today. I truly believe that Judy King saved the rest of my life.
We now live in a world where divorce attorneys advertise via any/all means possible. Most are just trying to get your money. Their goal is to get you through the divorce process quickly, caring less about fairness, and more about revenue. The big firms view divorcing couples as sheep, being lured by catchy advertising - but they don't take the time to work for you. Judy King "had my back" during the most difficult time of my life, and I'll be forever grateful.
By no means am I wealthy. I'm a hard-working father who loves his kids and was blind-sided by who he thought was the love of his life for 20+ years. My ex-wife paid three times in attorneys fees that I did ... and she received a settlement half of what I initially offered. Judy is really, REALLY good at what she does.
Judy King has been practicing law for 30+ years, has an extremely solid reputation; and doesn't spend a dime to advertise. That doesn’t just “happen”.
Divorce is a life-changing process, you've got ONE SHOT to protect yourself. No one does that better than Judy King.
