Highly Recommended, Very Professional
There are so many Law Firms in the ATL. The problem is that you need someone who has the knowledge, someone who is professional and experienced. It helps to have great legal representation and that’s why I would recommend Carletta Sims. She is reassuring and guides you through the legal and emotional issues involved in difficult settlements. She is an expert in her profession beyond compare. She is assertive, and an Excellent Negotiator, not afraid to push it to the limit. She shines in court. You can completely trust her to defend you and protect your best interests. I am happy with the settlement. I would highly recommend Carletta Sims to anyone who finds themselves in need of legal representation.

Great Experience
Carletta was extremely professional and reliable. She worked on my case over the course of 3 years and we ended up getting the best desired outcome. I had my life in her hands and she came through for me. I would recommend her to anyone who seeks legal help.

After years of representation and numerous different cases attorney Sims has proven herself to be honest, fair, dilligent, and effective. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a competent attorney that actually cares about you and the outcome of your case.

I had to make a formal complaint about Carletta Sims with the State Bar of GA!
I was reffered to Carletta Sims through a family friend/ judge. The family friend/ judge and Carletta attended the same church. At the time I was trying to get my record expunged. ( little did I understand at the time was in the state of Ga prior to 2012, an expungement was not automatic after acquittal and could even be denied by the DA!) . However I'm sure mrs sims knew this. Me and my mother met her at Starbucks on cascade road. She made me feel very comfortable, even told me not to worry about having had been arrested because it doesn't define my character even compared it to her parents who were arrested back in the day for marching for civil rights! Anyway she said she would expunge my record and all we had to pay her was $250 because it was going to be a quick process. Long story short she stopped calling, emailing and answering her phone. It soon because clear she took my money! We reached out to our family friend and she was embarrass and apologetic ( keep in mind she knows mrs Simms from church, so she was also shocked at what we were telling her! She advised us to contact the State Bar of Georgia. We did as she instructed and went through this process for about 3 months. Basically they made her pay me my money back in full. I received a check in the mail for $250 addressed to me. I would also like it to be known this is the second written complaint I've made about mrs Simms. But somehow my first was deleted . It is on my heart to make my personal experience with mrs Simms . If she did this to a 21 year old college student that wanted to get her record expunged and was reffered by a PROMINET JUDGE FROM HER CHURCH, I'm sure I can't be the only one she has done something similar to. She didn't expect me to fight her for my money back she assumed I would let the $250 go but it was more the principal of the matter. Let me also say she took the case knowing the whole time that she wasn't going to be able to expungeme my record! Thank God the law changed about 1 year after this ordeal and I was able to do it myself!
