Prompt and Efficient
I was referred to Jeremy Abernathy from a close friend. Mr. Abernathy contacted me in less than fifteen minutes. Our initial consultation was informative and efficient, as he answered all my questions and was prepared strategically to address my legal issue. 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.

Excellent lawyer
I was going through a bad custody case and hired Jeremy. Not only did he meet my expectations but he exceed them. I dont know how my case would have turned out without him.

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.

Estate Planning
Being only my second time using a lawyer, Jeremy made me feel like I was family, he was very thorough, patient, and helpful in making me feel that I was going to be ok. He is a man of faith, and also a family man who believes in doing the right thing, and being fair to others. I would recommend his service to any one who needs legal representation, because I believe he will serve you well.

The Right Choice
I hired Abernathy to handle my divorce. We met, he got the specifics for my case, and immediately went to work. While going through the divorce process he and his group advised me on ways to help myself with the case. Before the divorce was final I had to get a protection order. Jeremy helped me feel safe and handled the protection order promptly. I can not express through words my appreciation for this company. He and his team made me feel as though I was part of their family. He is a professional and the way he handled my case in court was amazing. I can go on, and on, and on but bottom line Jeremy Abernathy and his team are The Right Choice!

Mr. Abernathy SAVED the Day!!!!
Mr. Abernathy is without a doubt a fantastic attorney. I have a child support case that is 6 years old and for almost a year I had been trying to get a review modification completed through DCSS. I was given the run around over and over again. I decided to retain an attorney a looked in AVVO and found Mr. Abernathy. Mr. Abernathy and his team guided and helped me every step of the way and was able to resolve my case within one month! I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Abernathy and his team for your legal matters. Again thank you for all of your help. God Bless!

Child Custody
I was recently divorced with custody battle over 2 young children and I was very pleased with the outcome. Jeremy worked very hard for me and made me feel calm in a time of much distress. I would even say he felt like a friend. Great lawyer. Confident, knowledgeable and personable.

Family Matters to Jeremy Abernathy
Mr. Abernathy is very knowledgeable about family law, professional, punctual, and most importantly loves his job. I always recieved a response from him in a timely manner whenever I had any questions. I never felt like I was just a paycheck but that I had a friend in my corner fighting for the best interest of my family.

REVIEW
Jeremy helped me out there I was in a very bad accident he help me deal with the insurance and all the bills and everything that was coming at me and then he turned around and help me with my divorce Jeremy was a great joke.
Posted by David | January 9, 2015
The best decision I made
I had two seperate child support cases In which I fell behind drastically due to lack of employment. Attorney Abernathy fought to allow me to get set up payment plans without the state suspending my license like they normally would. He worked hard to fight for me and unlike others I contacted wasn't trying to charge me an enormous fee. I respect him not only as my lawyer but as someone I could rely on in my times of need.

GREAT LAWYER
I had put off doing a will for so long because i thought it was going to be very expensive but i was pleasantly pleased with the affordable price. Mr. Abernathy was highly recommended. He was professional and very knowledgeable. The will was done in a timely manner. If I ever have the need for legal advice again i will call him.
