If you care about results...
Tracy was the 3rd attorney I interviewed for my child custody case, and the only lawyer that didn't discuss concessions to the plaintiff during our initial consultation. She had an approach of winning from the start. The day of mediation she was on top of the case, argued intelligently and convincingly on my behalf, and I did not lose 1 minute of time with my precious daughter. If you care about results...

Divorce is hard, so I hired Tracy Crider to represent me!
Divorce is hard, especially when your life has been threatened! I cannot find the words to thank Tracy Crider, Attorney for Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor, for representing and protecting me through a very difficult/complicated divorce. Tracy had to jump start everything by helping me obtain a Protective Order due to a threat to my life and continued harassment, before we could serve the divorce papers. Each of the 5 times I had to go to the courthouse Tracy had someone from her office drive us to the courthouse together and pick us up. This made me feel safe. Better than driving, parking, and walking in alone while looking over my shoulder. Maria, Tracy’s paralegal, was efficient and always timely in alerting me to items that needed to be signed, court and mediation dates to ensure I could attend. Tracy prepared me for each meeting with the Judge and calmed my nerves. Tracy went above all my expectations to keep me safe, protected my pension, and was able to get my money that was stolen from my IRA and almost 50% of the assets. I am grateful to have had such a caring, attentive, and diligent Attorney! Thank You Tracy!!!

Best divorce attorney in Atlanta!
Teresa (Tracy) Crider Tracy Crider "protected" me through a very, very difficult divorce. She represented met every step of the way. She would call me about very stressful matters to reassure me everything would be okay. Her senior paralegal, Maria, was also always there for me, talking with me, listening and reassuring me. Tracy was able to get me "substantial" maximum alimony and 50% of the marital assets. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Tracy and Maria!
