Robert W. Hughes Jr.

also known as Robby Hughes

About me

I have been in practice since 1992.  My practice primarily focuses on business litigation and probate litigation.  We have handled numerous trials including jury trials, appeals to the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court for our clients.

My firm is a small firm specializing in superior service to our clients.  Prior to practicing law, I owned a large printing, publishing company that I sold. 

My team consists of two lawyers, two paralegals who have worked with me for many years and an office manager.  We are technologically savvy and communicate with our clients via email where possible.



We only give free consultations in matters that might be contingency fee matters such as probate litigation matters.
