GUIDING FAMILIES THROUGH LEGAL COMPLEXITIES, WITH COMPASSION AND EXPERTISE!

Because I have been through a tumultuous divorce and problems with child support services personally, my passion does not only come from a legal perspective but from a very personal one as well.  I am committed to clients being well informed of the "legal standard" as well as what life looks like after the storm.  Throughout the process you won't find anyone more committed and better that will fight for you! I have also had to file bankruptcy before, which is why I decided to add that practice area to my firm. It is important for people to understand not only the misjudged aspects of bankruptcy, but also the benefit and blessing that can follow.

Hire Her Before They Do
I have been to court with Jephonne on three different occasions and quite frankly there is no one else I would want representing me. Her no-nonsense approach, knowledge of the law and compassion for her clients helped me navigate a very difficult divorce/child custody and contempt issues (twice) with my ex shortly after. Jephonne’s ability to help me understand GA law and focus on what was worth battling in the courtroom gave me the confidence I needed to get through it all. Meanwhile, he rotated through three different attorneys trying to find one who could stand toe to toe with Jephonne in the courtroom. Divorce is not cheap, but this woman is worth every penny. Forever grateful to have her in MY corner fighting for me and my family when needed.

Knowledgeable, Caring and Passionate- HIGHLY RECOMMEND
DON'T GO TO COURT WITHOUT A JEPHONNE! I don't have enough space to write in detail all of the wonderful things about Attorney Jephonne Roy. My case was complicated. She was my 7th attorney in a case that had been in 2 states for, at that time, 5 years. I consulted a firm in 2019 that attorney Roy worked for, and my case was given to her. She has been my attorney since that time and will continue to be MY attorney. Today is the one-year anniversary of the end of our FOUR-day trial that ended 8 years of harassment! Jephonne Roy diligently prepared for my case while keeping me informed of everything she planned on addressing in court. She allowed me to be an active participant in the process as well. During the four exhaustive days, she was nothing less than amazing, incredible, outstanding, ...top notch litigator!! It was so exciting and I actually had fun watching her work her magic in the court room. She truly put on a show! She revealed lies of our guardian ad litem, the opposing party and even the opposing attorney. She made sure the judge knew all of the facts and did not overlook anything. In the end...WE WON!! A moment of validation and vindication!! Over the four years leading up to our trial, she helped me to see the bigger picture of my custody case. She helped me to run the marathon that it would become and helped me to maintain focus. A true counselor. Jephonne is a great communicator. We communicated almost on a daily basis (four years) from the time I retained her due to the high conflict nature of my case. She will not tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear. She has great integrity and will never put herself or her clients in compromising situations. My case had many twists and turns, but Jephonne stayed on top of it. She was able to turn a horrible temporary decision by a Judge into a huge victory for myself and my children. Our lives have been forever changed by Jephonne and her fervent representation. If you are dealing with a high conflict co-parent, immediately hire Jephonne and she will walk you through to get the best outcome!! I say with love that I hope to NEVER have to hire her again but if that time comes.... she will be my first call!

Your Search Stops Here
Jephonne is a Beast! If you're looking for an attorney who's knowledgeable, compassionate, and knows how to run a courtroom, then look no further. She consistently steered me in the right direction for the best possible outcome and she never disappointed me. Her expertise, confidence, and attitude towards my special situation made it apparent that we were well prepared for every issue that arose. She treated my case as if it were her own. She created a plan of action and in return allowed me to obtain a better custody arrangement than what I originally expected. I am overjoyed with our final outcome, in which there is a no contact order in place! I’ll always refer Jephonne and her team to anyone who is looking for an educated, straightforward and honest attorney. Jephonne, I can’t thank you enough for helping me get through this challenging situation. Thank God for you!!

Fair and highly satisfied results!!!
Needing a strong competent, supportive and fair divorce attorney, I was referred to The Family Law Group by a friend who had seen first hand, how adequate another friend of theirs divorce proceeding had settled. After my initial conference with the entire staff team, and seeing that all key personnel from the firm were present and were going to be included in all correspondence, thus ensuring continued knowledge of my case, should something unforeseen, such as an illness or other emergency, to my assisted representative, Attorney J. Roy. Right from the start, Attorney Roy's energy and passion for my best interest was obvious. She is very knowledgeable not only about divorce laws, but is also quite versed in veterans policies and procedures. Steadfast and determined to do right by her client(s), I definitely recommend her for anyone needing assistance, should any type of family related assistance is needed. Thank you Attorney Roy and the entire staff/team!!!

Phenomenal!
Attorney Roy is the epitome of what a dedicated, knowledgeable, and compassionate attorney should be when dealing with a divorce. My divorce was very tumultuous and messy. I knew from the beginning that I would need the best! I needed an attorney who would not back down but really fight for me. Attorney Roy did not waiver or grow weary during the nine-months battling my ex and his attorney. And they battled us every step of the way from custody, property to retirement. She remained steadfast, reliable, and followed up with all matters. Her persistence and attention to detail made all the difference from beginning to end. As a result, I received all that I needed, wanted and more!! Above all else the peace I need for my next chapter. Thankful to God and the AWESOME Attorney he provided me!! I'm FOREVER GRATEFUL Attorney Roy!

A true credit to her profession
I hired Jephonne to deal with my divorce. I was extremely nervous as there was small children and property here and overseas to take into consideration (I'm from the UK). Jephonne was on the ball, an encyclopedia for Georgia law for my many questions, quick to reply and left me with a feeling of confidence that she was the right person for this in every interaction I had with her. She never gave me unrealistic expectations but was firm in her belief that we would get a favorable outcome based on what my priorities were. Thankfully we got everything that I had hoped for and more. I went home that night after the end of the mediation session and thanked God for pointing me in Jephonne's direction

Professional and Highly Recommened!
Attorney Roy is excellent at her profession and handled my legitimacy case with great care! Before each meeting she ensured that I was prepared and never caught off guard. I was very nervous due to the matter of my case but Attorney Roy always ensured me that everything will turn out for the best and always gave me realistic expectations. I never felt alone and Attorney Roy always answered all of my questions promptly, even if it was a simple question. Her knowledge and professionalism was worth my retainer and other fees! I know that this will not be the last time that I will need to go to court regarding my matter and I would 100% use Attorney Roy for any future cases! Thank you again :)

Awesome
The first time we met her professionalism was above par and it was evident that she cared about my case. In the courtroom, Attorney Roy was everything I imagined and more! When the final decree came and I read “we got everything we asked for,” it was a feeling of relief and a sense of vindication, the end of a long process was starting. Lastly, because she did so well, the other “party” now recommends this law firm to their friends contemplating a divorce.That’s how good they are! Thank you Fairell & Roy.

Excellence in every way!
I used the word excellence in my title and yet that still does not fully embody the gift of Attorney Roy's knowledge and skill. Attorney Roy is the best in the field! Let's debate it! :-) She has helped through numerous legal affairs of the course of several years and I will never be able to repay her. She is a blessing to those that seek her services and SHE KNOWS THE LAW! She is witty all while still maintaining an unmatched level of professionalism and intelligence. I refer everyone with family issues to her and Fairell Roy and Associates. THANK YOU a million times over and God bless you!

The GOAT
Attorney Roy is arguably the greatest lawyer of all time. I've hired her twice and in both instances she has exceeded my expectations!! Because of her I have 50/50 physical and legal custody of my son. I'm the final decision maker over anything pertaining to my son and she had my child support order terminated!!!! I can't thank attorney Roy enough for all of her hard work over the last 21 months. She's a great one!!!!

Very Professional and Organized
Great experience. Very professional and organized and to the point. Love the system used to upload and download documents and receive notification of the same. Billing was done on point every 2 weeks so that I knew what was being billed along the way. Excellent communication. Would highly recommend.

SO Happy with my lawyer
I hired Attorney Roy through the Fairell Law Firm. She was suggested to me by a friend. Attorney Roy took me through the divorce process. Attorney Roy was always thoughtful and concerned with my case. She sought out exactly what I deserved and kept my divorce equitable and fair in a divorce with disparaging incomes between the two parties. She made sure I understood the process well and when there were snags she was eager and quick to fix them.

Divorce
I would like to thank The Fairell Firm & Staff in handling my Divorce case. Special shout out to Attorney Roy. She is a sweet heart! She was polite, professional and very knowledgeable. She even took the time to explain to me in detail any questions I had known or unknown. She responded to every email/calls to answer any of my questions or concerns and most importantly she was honest about everything related to my case and trustworthy. The closing went smoothly, she was on point with all of the documents that had to be signed and she achieved in winning a FAVORABLE outcome for me and my case. Attorney Roy was very understanding in what it was I was looking to establish and she fought for me and my family and got just that! She made herself accessible and told me if I had any other closing related issues pertaining to any documents to give her a call. Thank you once again on doing a GREAT JOB! You changed my life tremendously and took a huge burden off my back! I would highly recommend The Fairell Firm.

Excellent Law Firm
The Fairell Law Firm is a hidden gem in the Atlanta Metro area. I've had to retain Legal Counsel a few times for the same matter, but was disappointed with the experience and results from my former Lawyer. I felt relieved from the moment I met with Attorney Fairell and her staff during my initial consultation regarding child support modification. They were professional, knowledgeable and listened to my concerns. I was confident after our discussion that this experience would be far better than my first experience. Attorney Roy handled my case. She was poised, super smart, caring and organized. Not only is she an excellent Lawyer, but she's also good with numbers! (Excellent combination) She kept me calm throughout the process, which is no easy task and she worked hard to ensure my desired outcome was achieved, AND IT WAS! I also made certain I had all of my documents in order to ensure all expenses were captured and to avoid any errors. Social Media advertising led me to a superb Law Firm and I am forever #Grateful
