Diligent Determined and Decisive
Three years after my consultation with Rachel, I was back asking her to represent me. She still had my file and in minutes recalled the details from the consult. She moved swiftly, countered effectively on my behalf and handled the foolishness dished out from the other side with ease. Rachel was responsive to me--prompt in returning emails and phone calls. She answered questions clearly, concisely and thoroughly, and provided expert guidance and recommendations as appropriate. Was comfortable talking over the issues with her and I never felt like I couldn't ask a question -- no matter how dumb I sounded. Rachel is hard working, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. I'd not hesitate to refer her.

Rachel is the best!
Rachel and her team helped my son and I. We were able to rescue my son from a very tenuous situation and now I have custody of him. She really came thru for us and we couldn't be happier! Thanks for an awesome job !

Amazing family law attorney
I hired Ms. Platt and her team for my very contentious child support and visitation proceedings after moving to Georgia. She was efficient, easy to contact and most importantly proactive. She always went above and beyond and helped us settle this matter without going to court. She always kept me in the loop and in the end the matter was settled favorably. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again if needed.

Platt Family Law Recommendation
Platt Family Law was recommended to me through a friend who is an attorney, who knew the reputation of Rachel and her practice. She knew I would be both respected and well represented. She was absolutely right! Divorce is a very difficult , confusing and emotional time. I am so grateful to Rachel and her entire team for helping me navigate through it all.

Great Attorney!
Rachel's whole team was amazing. From start to finish they were professional, understanding, knowledgeable and and always kept me up to date on any major changes in my case. I hopefully will not need to use them again in the future, but she will always be one I recommend to friends and family seeking legal counsel in family law. Thank you so much for everything you and your firm has done for my family!

Extremely Knowledgeable, Professional, Ethical and Persistent
Rachel and her amazing team truly set the standard. Their confidence, expertise, dedication, compassion, excellent communication and most of all, persistence is what changed the course of my case resulting in primary custody being modified. The word "Thank You" does not seem to encompass enough for the gratitude I have for all of their hard work on my case.

Rachel Platt, a single dad's most important asset.
Rachel Platt and her amazing team have represented me in legal actions to include child custody, child support issues, issues with my ex-wife, contempt actions, and arrest orders. As a result of those actions I have full custody of my children, child support awarded, and peace of mind. Rachel is a brilliant attorney with never ending work ethic. She made my children her top priority and has kept them safe. She has always been there for me answering question after question, for hours on end. She seems tireless in her work and professionalism. I boldly recommend Rachel Platt and her team for any family law issue. There is no one else I will trust or use. Rachel is still on speed dial on my phone, and she always will be. Thank you Platt Family Law.

AMAZING attorney!!
I couldn't ask for a better attorney. Rachel did wonders for my two contentious child custody cases. She always responded to emails or phone calls within one day, most of the time she responded immediately. She put her heart in to everything. She was very passionate, and she was AMAZING in the courtroom. Today, I have full custody of both my children. I'm glad I had Rachel on my side, I couldn't imagine anyone else representing me as well as she did. I can't say thank you enough.

Could have done better
She represented me in my divorce. Didn't do a great job with ensuring I got a fair share of the marital assets. Seemed more interested in wrapping things up quickly than in doing right by her client. I learned later that I could have received much more in the split.
Response from Rachel Platt March 28, 2023
We are sorry that you were less than satisfied with our law firm. We strive to create the best possible experience for our clients, which includes answering text messages, emails, and phone calls received both during and after office hours. Our clients know we have an open-door policy and that includes having access to discuss any and all issues. We have always encouraged our clients to contact our law firm for any issue that needs to be addressed, and we encourage you to do the same. Every case is very different and unique, and there is no "right way" to split assets. We look forward to hearing from you.

Charged for Every Little Thing
I had a phone call to politely let her know her services were no longer needed and she sent me a bill for it. Yikes. She performed her service but was not personable.

The worst
She totally blew my case. Cost me a lot of money. As they say, she "phoned it in". Stay away.

Simplistic, Hurried, Doesn't-Get-It
Ms. Platt represented me. She was non-attentive, hurried, and impersonal. She made many assumptions which turned out to be false. She lacks persistence and follow through. She only took my telephone calls when it seemed to be convenient to her. She seems to have her hands in too many baskets. Her excuses were plenty -- conference, training, etc.

We are sorry that you were less than satisfied with our law firm. We’ve been in business more than eight years and have served more than 1,000 clients all over metro Atlanta. We routinely win cases, including obtaining attorney’s fees payments on behalf of our clients for costs of litigation - even as recently as two weeks ago. We also strive to create the best possible experience for our clients, which includes answering text messages, emails, and phone calls received both during and after office hours. Unfortunately, according to our records, we have not been retained by anyone named “Charlie.” Our clients know we have an open door policy and that includes having access to discuss any and all issues. We have always encouraged our clients to contact our law firm for any issue that needs to be addressed, and we encourage you to do the same. We look forward to hearing from you.
