Practice areas

"Divorce hurts, but it doesn't have to be nasty." After 16 years of being in the courtroom, I have settled into practicing exclusively family law. In addition to working to ensure fair settlements in these cases, I believe a part of my role as an Attorney is to educate my clients about the impact the law will have on their specific issues. I strive to help them to understand the legal implications associated with their choices, and provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. My focus is resolution driven with the least amount of conflict possible.

the BEST attorney to help navigate a tough situation
When I retained Georgetta's services, I was still in shock and disbelief about the situation that I found myself in. Georgetta and her team were patient, responsive and wise in guiding me through the process. They were always available to me when I had questions or concerns and provided me with the best guidance possible, always with the best interest of my children and my future in mind. After talking with friends and colleagues who have been through a divorce and did not have the superior guidance that I was provided, I appreciate Georgetta and her team even more. I would not hesitate to recommend this team to anyone who finds themselves dealing with the divorce process.

Knowledgeable, compassionate and professional
Georgetta was our attorney through a very difficult custody hearing and was outstanding. We feel extremely lucky and honored to have had her as our representation. I cannot say enough about her knowledge, determination and professionalism. Not only did she have an unbelievable understanding of the law, she was sympathetic and compassionate with our situation, as if it were her own. She was prompt to respond to all of our questions/concerns and was very supportive throughout the process. Georgetta was nothing less than exceptional in all areas and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal advice, particularly in family law.

Excellent attorney
Georgetta is an excellent attorney. I contacted an attorney prior to her, and regretted it. Once I explained to her my sons charges she took the case and we had excellent results. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate and very straight forward. I hope, God willing that I will not need an attorney again but if I do she will be the first lawyer I will call.

Simply the BEST!! Pease read if you need a dependable attorney
What you can expect from Georgetta and Latrese's group: 1- Professionalism- They've been great in telling me how things will work and what to expect. They're truly genuine in their desire to help. 2- Communication- They've responded to every email and call within 24-48 hours. And are always their to set up calls or meetings to discuss your case. 3- Active Listeners- This is different from just listening. They listened to me and continued to ask more questions to understand why my ex-wife was so bitter at me, so they could get a better understanding of how to handle my case. 4- Strategy- once we discussed my history with my ex-wife and my other legal challenges in the past, they put together a plan with moving pieces. This gave us options based on what my ex would or wouldn't do, as well as dealing with other potential court/legal challenges. 5-Billing- Everything is CLEAR. No hidden charges, or attempts to pile on unnecessary billing. I found their prices and methods for billing to be very fair and reasonable; especially consider the quality of service they provide. In summary, if you've had attorney's who do any of the following below. Call them, Its worth it. 1- Don't respond to your phone calls 2- Who try to rake you over the coals with billing 3- Who say they have your best interest but that fades once they have your retainer 4- Or they're simply not as knowledgeable as you need to win your case.

So GLAD I hired her and her team!!!!
Georgetta has a protective nature and will fight to get you what you need. She understands that this is an emotional process and will work through it with you. She and her team is upfront with all costs and procedures so I never once thought that they were taking advantage of me. Even though my ex made things difficult, they were patient, worked with me (and him) and gave me advice to help me make the best possible decision. They were very thorough in all the paperwork and efficient with communicating with all involved parties. The whole team and staff was very professional and my son and I thank them all for making this difficult time go as smoothly as possible. I am so glad that I hired them because they really did take care of me and let me focus on putting my life back together.

Highly Recommend..don't look anywhere else!
Georgetta and her team made me feel at ease throughout this difficult process. They approached everything with a high level of professionalism and compassion. They were able to keep me "sane" and promptly responded to my phone calls and emails. Give her a need to look anywhere else!

Genuine, Efficient, and Highly Effective
Georgetta was very dedicated to my case and made me feel like I was her sole concern. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and left no stone unturned as it pertained to the success of my case. She practices integrity with every calculated move and was responsive to all of my needs and concerns. Working with Georgetta made an otherwise challenging situation more bearable, just knowing she was in charge. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Glaves-Innis to anyone in need of a genuine, efficient, and highly effective attorney.

Outstanding Attorney
Attorney Georgetta Glaves-Innis is one true professional. I've utilized her services on three different occasions, and each one was well worth the investment on my behalf. Her understanding of the law and straight forward approach of resolving issues are second to none. I would highly recommend and if absolutely would retain her expertise in the future if needed.

Child Support
I met with other attorneys before deciding to have Attorney Glaves Innis take my case. She listened and her responses were ALL geared to the best interest of my child. Some things she said I didn't like, but she made it clear it's the child who she is fighting for and not just me. I liked her fairness , integrity and support of my child's best interest. Also, she stays current with what's happening in her county and surrounding areas.

Has patience to listen to the client
I had a free consultation on divorce and she clearly noted all the points and explained the different scenarios and about child custody. More of all, she has patience to listen to the client. I tried another law firm, who was like "this is what we do" that's it. Once i decide, i would prefer to have Georgetta as my lawyer to represent my case.

Very helpful with complex case
Georgetta took over my case after my former attorney left the firm. She got up to speed quickly and helped me win the case! She and her team were very responsive and knowledgeable, and the cost was reasonable for their services. Would recommend her and her firm to others.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jun 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"When I first met Georgetta, I was impressed at how she could be strong, confident and humble all at the same time. She loves the practice of law and excels at helping people deal with difficult situations. She loves to take command of the facts and the law in order to later take command of the Courtroom. But, she knows just how to balance that with her experience. She is keenly aware of when a client should settle a case rather than take it to the Judge. She will spend the time to make sure a client understands the risks of going to trial. She will worth with the client so that they understand why they should settle the case and not make a mistake. Then, she will channel her passion to negotiate a good settlement for the client."
