Damon was Wonderful!
Damon helped me tremendously through my divorce. Not only was he there to provide legal advice, but also helped me maintain my sanity through this experience. He was extremely helpful in explaining the procedures and possible outcomes of the situation. I felt very comfortable having Damon at my side to advise me through this ordeal. I would highly recommend Damon as an attorney.

I had a very difficult case involving a large arrears and modification of visitation-- both of which are very sensitve issues. Damon worked tirelessly and creatively to help my ex-husband and myself to work through mediation--hence saving a lot of money. My case is of an ongoing nature, and Damon continues to be patient and determined to help me attain the best outcome.

Knowledgeable and professional
I am so impressed with Mr. Bivek. He is a "cut to the chase" kind of attorney who is incredibly knowledgeable, but more importantly he's sharp. He knows what you need, how you need it, when you need it and will help you make it happen. He's a bright light in a seemingly dark tunnel of paperwork and procedure. I'm just glad I found him to assist me in my divorce.

A diligent, dedicated and compassionate divorce lawyer
Damon helped me through a particularly challenging divorce. He served as my advocate, fighting to make sure that I was treated fairly, and as the voice of reason, when I had trouble seeing rationally. He was accessible and responsive. I know that he has other cases, but I felt as if he treated my case with care and attention. Just as important, he was compassionate. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Bivek was easy to communicate with, and made the overall experience a smooth one.
I hired Mr. Bivek to represent me in an uncontested divorce. My wife and I were on very good terms, and we already had a very good idea how we were going to divide things, but I had a few negative experiences with my initial dealings with other offices. Some were very slow to get back to me, or ignored my request for information entirely, while others either did not provide me with the initial information I was asking for or were charging too high a fee for an initial consultation. When I contacted Mr. Bivek initially, he was very forthcoming, and it was apparent to me right away that he had a very positive attitude. After my initial consultation with him, I decided to hire him as my attorney, and I am glad that I did. He guided me through the process, answered the questions I had, made some recommendations when we were drawing up our settlement agreement, and was at the courtroom with me when the final judgement was presented before the court. I was very happy with my experience. He took a lot of the stress out of the process.

Worked great on my Child Custody case
Damon worked very well on my Child Custody and Contempt case. He was able to take the information from a few discussions and office meetings to create a case that ultimately ended up in my family's favor.

Damon is a very skillful Communicator
I hired Damon after my previous lawyer wanted to create lots of drama with my ex. Damon came aboard half way through the case and completely turned the case around. He skillfully and instinctively knew the right way to handle my difficult and stubborn ex. Damon achieved a more than fair settlement for me and my son. Damon always treated me honestly and fairly. If you are looking for a lawyer who possesses the rare gift of integrity, Damon is your lawyer.

Efficient & Caring During Hard Time
Mr. Bivek is very knowledgeable in divorce situations and handles information delicately and accurately. He listens to what is given and gives best case & worst case input scenarios. I would recommend using Mr. Bivek as he works for your best interest fully and cares about seeing your outcome being as positive as possible for you. He is honest in providing legal advice (even if it is not necessarily what you'd like to hear) based on his experience with the court system. I appreciated his guidance with how the divorce process works and being able to rely on him to complete everything timely given a hard situation.

Saved a Family
My ex wife filed an emergency custody hearing, making numerous bogus claims. I have always been the primary custodial parent, but unfortunately women are given an unfair advantage in custody hearings. Damon Bivek leveled the playing field. In a matter of 36 hours, we formed a sound game plan to counter the mother's claims. Mr. Bivek provided a sound defense, and like a master artist was able to accurately portray me as the sound father that I have always been. Long story short, the judge sided with us and my daughter is able to continue normalcy. Would definitely recommend Mr. Bivek to anyone in need of sound legal counsel!

Divorce
Damon was very compassionate regarding my situation and ensured me he would fight hard on my behalf. Regarding the monetary aspect of specifics within the divorce that I was considering, he always factored what would be in my best interest. As a a single parent, it made me feel good knowing that he was always looking out for my best interest as well as my daughter. Most lawyers are only looking at what they can make off of clients and Damon was not that person. He is a genuine person and only wants to ensure that you are fairly treated and get what you deserve. Nor did he ever make me feel stressed out about his fees. If you want someone to represent you and have your best interest at heart, retain Damon as your lawyer. I've never had to use a lawyer before but he has set the highest bar for standards. Thank you, Damon for all that you did for me and my daughter. Because of you, our future is secure!

Knowledgeable, Helpful, Kind and Supportive
Usually, you need a lawyer to help you manage the really tough spots f life and that stinks. When you are angry and sad and maybe a little (or more) scared of the situation that you find yourself in. You have to put all your trust in someone who you don't know, who knows all about the dark road ahead and can help you steer through it. Damon proved himself to be this lawyer for me. When I had questions, he was there with an answer in a very timely manner. When I admitted my fear, he was kind and supportive. He is courteous, engaging and trustworthy. I have already given his name out to a couple people I know. I will recommend him again and again. More importantly, I'll use him again if I ever need to.

Best Family Law Attorney in GA
I don’t believe anyone gets married to get divorced. I know I did not think it would ever happen to me. I thought I would be married for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, one day I found myself facing the decision of filing for divorce because my marriage was past repair. I was unsure of what I needed do and I required guidance to make sure that every step I took was the right one, especially make sure each step was in accordance with the law. Divorce is emotionally and physically draining. You are so unsure of what is going to happen and all you want is the best outcome for everyone involved. Luckily for me, I met Damon through a mutual friend and I’m so grateful I did. Damon has been a solid rock throughout my divorce; from the beginning to the end. He is honest, professional, direct, knowledgeable and understanding. He kept me focused throughout the entire process. He kept me motivated on the tasks that needed to be completed, the overall goal, and what the opposing side was doing, which at times the opposing side was extremely difficult. Damon worked hard on my case, protected my interests, and was always straightforward. He strove to get me the best outcome for myself and my young child. I’m extraordinarily thankful that he was my attorney and would recommend him to anyone!

Excellent Attorney
Damon was excellent! I was trying to orchestrate a move to another coast without being spiteful or unnecessarily aggressive towards my ex. Damon understood my intention and managed to get me everything I wanted without being intimidating and overbearing towards the other party. Now I get to move AND we have a workable plan in place....the best of both worlds. Thanks, Damon.

Great experience!
Damon was awesome from the beginning all the way to the end. My case dragged out a while but that was more on me and my ex wife. In the end he made it very easy and I would recommend him to anyone looking for help or advise with a divorce.

Hiring Damon was one of the best decisions I have ever made!!
When I first met Damon at a divorce seminar I already planned on hiring another highly recommended attorney. When I told Damon who I had planned on hiring he told me the attorney was very good and I was making a great choice in hiring him. I then spoke with Damon briefly about my divorce and what I was hoping to accomplish. He told me I was never going to get what I was planning on asking for. I couldn't believe how honest and straightforward he was. I felt very comfortable with Damon because I never felt he was trying to persuade me to hire him instead of my original choice for an attorney. Although I did not know anything about Damon and spoke with him for only a short time, I decided to follow my gut and hire him. This was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have to admit that I was initially somewhat anxious about my decision to hire Damon because he was significantly younger and did not have as many years of experience as the original attorney I was going to hire. My husband was also an attorney, so Damon was going up against 2 attorneys who began their careers before Damon even graduated high school. Damon assured me he felt confident in his ability to represent me in my divorce, and he definitely proved it to be true. The most difficult part of my divorce was knowing and accepting that the lives of my kids and me were in the hands of another person. I had to trust that Damon understood my needs, respected my decisions, and was looking out for the best interest of my kids and me. After being married to an attorney who was neither supportive nor trustworthy, the thought of trusting anyone was terrifying, especially another attorney. Throughout my almost year long divorce Damon continuously reassured me he had my back and was protecting my kids and me. He supported my decisions, yet was also very direct and firm when he felt I was being unrealistic or losing focus. Damon was not only an amazing attorney who helped me get almost everything I felt I needed to effectively support my kids, he was also a strong emotional support when I needed it during my lowest moments. There are no words to describe how thankful I am for everything Damon has done to help my kids and me. In addition to being a huge support, Damon was very mindful of my financial situation and did everything possible to keep the cost of my divorce to a minimum. His rates were more than fair and I know that unlike most attorney's do, he did not charge me for every minute he spent working on my case. I hope I never need to hire an attorney again, but if I do I know without a doubt it will be Damon.

Divorce and Child Custody
Damon represented me in my divorce and four years later in modification of parenting plan. Damon is honest, fair and patient. He helped make me feel safe and kept me informed of my case. I knew Damon was always working for me and listening to what I needed.

Great Representation
Damon Bivek is a very caring family man first. He tries to save your marriage through recommending professional counseling. He's not really interested in a divorce lawsuit until you have exhausted all means to save your marriage. This is the main reason I hired him and after endless free advice. Once I determined that my marriage was over and a divorce was imminent, he highly recommended a fair and reasonable settlement for both parties. If your looking for a top gun with family values, this is your guy! He's one of the best attorneys in Cobb County!!!

AWESOME!
Mr. Bivek was retained for a childsupport modification order which devastated me and my children. He is a strong advocate for children and handled my case with utmost efficiency. He took the time to review and present ALOT of documentation to prepare a great defense. I was extremely impressed with his negotiation skills during mediation - not to mention his quick thinking and recollection of tiny details of the case that assisted in a fair resolution. He is very responsive - via email or phone. He cares about his clients and it shows. I have recommended his services to several people so far - and will continue to do so! He definitely deserves an A+++
