She's the right person for you
Diana helped me with a painful divorce. There were times I just sat in my chair and grinned as she took care of business and really made my case clear to opposing counsel. She is smart and has tremendous knowledge and will also educate others along the way. Don't go to court without her, I wont ever again. She is the right person to resolve your divorce.

Very helpful
Ms. Diana Young was very helpful and through in the grueling process of my divorce. She was quick to respond to the many questions I had through the whole process. Ms. Young listened at what I wanted as an end result and even went as far as helping communicate so we could get what was needed done. I was very thankful to have her in my corner this last year as I went through my divorce. Also very upfront about all information and explaining what needs to happen.

Hands down the BEST lawyer in GA
My name is Gary and I contacted Mrs. Young through this website and that was the BEST choice I ever made. From our first consultation to the final hearing she has been very professional and understanding with my entire case. I was going through a very bad child custody case with my ex wife and sinice I live in another state, I needed a good family law attorney that was well versed in Georgia state laws. Mrs Young really help me through a hard time in my life and as a result of her hard work, I was able to gain custody of my 2 boys. She made me comfortable with all the decisions that were made and talked me through each step of the process, while always maintaining a professional demeanor. I can't begin to say how thankful I am for her hardwork and it was my pleasure to have her as my attorney.

Personal matter
I contacted Diana after being referred to her. It concerned a personal matter involving filing with a government agency. Although others suggested legal involvement Diana advised the process that would take place and offered guidance. I've got the process moving and will see how it moves forward. If I need more help I will certainly use her.

Diana Young - Attorney - Stress reliever!!
Mrs. Young was my attorney when I was considered a minor. I had received a super speeder ticket on my way to school and Diana helped me get it off my record with minimal community service and a defense driving class. She attended court with me on both of my trial dates and took the confusion out of traffic court. Using The Young Law Firm made the experience a lot less scary. I would recommend Attorney Diana Young for any traffic violation cases. She was GREAT!

Best Family Law Attorney in Metro-Atlanta
I have had the privilege of being acquainted with Diana on a professional basis for several years now. As a fellow attorney, I often times refer my clients to Diana when they have an issue arise regarding personal family matters. I have also referred clients to Diana for personal injury matters. In each and every instance, my clients have reported back that Diana provided the utmost professionalism and due diligence in addressing their concerns, which in turn has led to favorable outcomes. Moreover, Diana has a wealth of experience combined with the requisite knowledge to zealously represent the best interests of her diverse clientele in a wide array of legal issues. I would strongly recommend Diana for anyone seeking legal advice in the areas of divorce, family law, or personal injury.

She was very helpful. When I was wrongfully accused of a charge she made sure that it would get taken care of and I would not have to deal with it.

Great for Divorce and Child Custody
Going through a divorce with two young kids is extremely difficult but Diana helped me understand my rights and fight for what I wanted. While my divorce took over a year, Diana kept me in the loop throughout the process.

SUPER LAWYER!!!
Diana is a professional and well-known in Cobb County Courts. I hired her for my divorce case and I was a defendant. There were lies, accuse, child custody in my case and Diana helped me to protect my rights. Divorce took about a year and a half long and it amaze me when I look back thinking how I walked out through that storm. I'm very thankful to have her as my attorney. I have earned a good attorney and a friend for my lifetime.

Very Effective Defense Attorney
After being falsely accused she worked very hard to right the wrong against me. Kept me well informed of my case and showed true compassion for me. In the end was able to get case dismissed. Would highly recommend her for any of your legal needs.
