Great Attorney
Jeremy was referred to me by another attorney and I could not be happier with the outcome of my custody case. My case was a bit difficult and throughout the whole process, I always felt as if my sons livelihood and best interests came first. He fought tooth and nail for us and stuck to his guns both in and out of the courtroom. He is going to do what's best for you, your children, and your case to make sure you get the best possible outcome-and will do it in the most professional manner. Based on personal observation, he is very well respected by his peers as well as the judge that we had. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone going through a legitimation and custody case. I can imagine Family Law to be very tough but he is definitely a pro and will handle you and your case with the utmost professionalism and care.

I can't express how much I appreciate Jeremy picking up my case on such short notice. The firm I was with prior to him, did not make me feel important or that my concerns or issues where a priority. I contacted Jeremy late in my case I felt the care and patience with him even tho it was a short deadline. It is very hard in family court for a father, and it's very overwhelming. Jeremy helped bring balance to my concerns and emotions by answering all my questions and giving counsel in a way I could still make my own decisions. At no point did I feel like he was just trying to take my money.

I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for Jeremy Abernathy's exceptional legal representation during my divorce and child custody case. Jeremy truly exceeded my expectations in every aspect of his work, and I am incredibly grateful for his assistance during this challenging time in my life. From the very beginning, Jeremy showed a remarkable level of expertise and knowledge in family law, which immediately put me at ease. He took the time to thoroughly explain the entire legal process to me, making sure I understood all my options and the potential outcomes. His ability to communicate complex legal matters in a clear and understandable manner was truly commendable. Throughout the entire process, Jeremy was patient and compassionate. He listened attentively to my concerns and always made me feel like my case was a top priority. I never felt rushed or ignored during our meetings, which was incredibly comforting during such a sensitive and emotional time. One of the most impressive aspects of Jeremy's approach was his unwavering dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for my children and me. He fought tirelessly on my behalf and left no stone unturned in preparing and presenting our case in court. I truly felt like he genuinely cared about the well-being of my family, and that meant the world to me. Thanks to Jeremy's expertise and diligence, we were able to reach a favorable resolution that safeguarded my children's best interests and ensured a fair division of assets. His negotiating skills were exceptional, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend Jeremy Abernathy to anyone facing a difficult family law situation. His professionalism, knowledge, and genuine compassion make him an outstanding divorce attorney and child custody advocate. If you find yourself in a similar situation, don't hesitate to reach out to Jeremy – you'll be in the best hands possible.

Awesome Attorney
Jeremy drafted a prenuptial agreement for my wife and I. We procrastinated and thankfully he was able to get this done promptly before the wedding. While he represented my interest, the document itself was thorough and reasonable. I am impressed with the work Jeremy provided. He listened to my concerns, provided sound counsel and got the job done! He also communicated efficiently with my wife's attorney and they were able to work everything out that needed redlining. Jeremy is very personable and made us feel right at home in his office when we came in to execute the documents. Abernathy Ditzel Hendrick is now our go to family law firm. Highly recommend!

Amazing Attorney
Mr. Abernathy is an amazing lawyer who made me feel much more comfortable and reassured in our judicial system as a young adult. He took care of a double traffic violation and all incoming fines and possible insurance increases. He was referred to me from a friend.

An Attorney that will fight for you!
Mr. Abernathy took my petition for divorce back in February 2020. Covid-19 happened and he never stop fighting for my divorce. Now March 2023, I’m finally divorced. I was referred to him by my Pastor at the time. He went the extra mile to ensure my case didn’t end between the cracks due to Covid-19. From experiences I’ve had with other attorneys, he shows a different level of professionalism and understanding for certain situations.

I felt as though I was his only client and he was personally committed to a favorable final outcome. Through his legal experience and relationships this matter was resolved within the timeframe he stated. I am appreciative and thankful for Mr. Abernathy’s counsel and would highly recommend.

Amazing lawyer
I don’t know where to start. Jeremy was referred to me as one of the best in the business and he was nothing short of that. He walked me through everything that was going to happen and in some really tough moments he assured me that we would be fine. There were some tough moments and Jeremy gave some tough love that was needed. He gave the plan and when followed everything came out the way he said it would. I can’t thank him enough for all of his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a family attorney.

We couldn't ask for a better Lawyer.
Mr. Abernathy is an exceptional lawyer. He was able to represent my husband with short notice and was able to work out a deal with the opposing party that we could live with. Mr. Abernathy always answered our calls. We will be working with him on future cases. We would recommend him to anyone. He is truly a God sent.

Excellent Services
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Mr. Abernathy on two different occasions for legal services in regards to custody and child support. On each occasion Mr. Abernathy was professional, honest, and thorough. In each instance, he made both cases very easy and understandable for both parties involved and handled them with care. While I hope I will no longer need legal services of this manner, in the event, Mr. Abernathy is always my first go-to choice. I have been thoroughly pleased with his staff, level of communication, and overall ability to relate to his clients with a level of compassion for maintaining the strength of family despite circumstance.
