ASSISTING PEOPLE WITH LIFE CHANGES IS WHAT I ENJOY DOING AND EXCEL AT.

I am a dedicated attorney and litigator who has helped many individuals over the last twenty years to strategically resolve their legal matters.   My professional experience includes working as a Federal litigator; a State Court Judge's Staff Attorney; an associate attorney at both a large  Atlanta insurance defense firm, and a civil litigator for a large, Marietta-based law firm. In 2011, I decided to working for myself and formed the Domestic and Civil litigation branch of a small firm.   In 2018, I am proud to announce that I transitioned from a firm partner to an owner of my own law firm, Henrickson Law Group, LLC.  Henrickson Law Group, LLC was formed  to better serve clients with two, convenient locations: one in Acworth, Georgia near Hwy 41 and the Seven Hills/Bentwater communities, and another office located on Kennesaw Avenue in Marietta, Georgia near the Marietta Courthouse, Marietta Square and Kennestone Hospital.  We are here to serve our clients in transition or planning for life change.  We care about what we do.

She’s awesome!
Every question that I had, Suzanne jumped on it and was able to get back to me in a very timely manner as well as helping me through the entire divorce process. Not just as a lawyer but as someone to talk to as well.

Great lawyer
Professional, hands on, incredible and very honest. oh! and very smart. She is hardworking and keeps you in formed at all times. Your money will be well spent and she is very considerate and she is also very direct. Words to describe Mrs. Henrickson, efficient, productive, honest, determine, relentless, courageous and excellent. Not hard to reach, if she cant get back to you, she will make sure that someone else does and then follow up to make sure that you are taken care of. Its like Allstate says, you are never alone when you need to reach her.

Awesome Lawyer!!!!
I recently had to get a divorce. And well.... my wife lived in another state GA. I contacted Suzanne and from the start she was patient, did not rush me (EVER), allowed me to tell her the long history of my marriage and was very thorough! Not only did she do a great job, but her and her team went above and beyond my expectations!!!!!! I highly recommend this law firm!!!! Thank you Suzanne!!!!

Child custody battle
I've spent the past year working with Suzanne to resolve my child custody legal issue. She is thorough and an excellent communicator. Observing her at trial was impressive because the opposing attorney was an utter disaster. Suzanne was organized and articulate. No one likes spending money on attorneys, but she saved me THOUSANDS!

She has a heart for her clients. She always does her homework, and is always ready to fight for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone and another thing I liked about her is she has very high ethics. And she always made herself available to answer any questions I had or concerns.

Light & Goodness
I only spoke with Suzanne for an hour or so but in that time I could tell she is a person that cares about the truth and ethics. She seems like the attorney that will fight for her client if she believes that are in the right. She understands the legal and political landscape of Paulding and Cobb counties. If things with my attorney do not give me more confidence in the next 3 weeks I am hiring Suzanne. Thank you Suzanne for giving me hope and for having a moral backbone!

I highly recommend Suzanne!!!
I recently found myself in an unexpected divorce situation. I literally felt like my whole world was crumbling. I was very scared and confused. I knew I needed someone that I could trust to guide me through this uncertainty… From my initial consultation call, I knew Suzanne was the one I wanted to hire to represent me and my children. I had fear of the unknown, the what ifs, how will/can I, but she was there every step of the way. She was extremely professional and was always prepared in every situation that came our way. Her assistant Debbie was an amazing addition to helping my case. She was so understanding, organized and dependable! Suzanne and Debbie are a devoted team who understand the significance of your situation. Every email or phone call was answered quickly and I always felt like I was priority. I know I wasn’t her only client but she always made me feel as if I were. That’s uncommon to find in someone these days. Her character and integrity are truly a rare find, and I’m so thankful she was put in my path. She’s incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, honest, and the passion she has for her clients is unmatchable. Law can be intimidating especially for me. I was scared and vulnerable and had no time to prepare. There just isn’t enough space for me to say what an incredible divorce lawyer she is, she is exceptional! I highly recommend her and any of her services.

Outstanding Divorce Attorney
I learned more about my specific divorce and co-parenting rights in two hours with Suzanne than I have from the previous 3 divorce attorneys I’ve hired/consulted with over the last 3 years. Things I really like about Suzanne: - she’s tenacious, aggressive, and will fight for your rights...especially if children are involved - she’s not intimidated by big name divorce attorney/firms - she’s wicked smart, so much so that she has divorce/family law statues memorized - in short, she’s a BOSS Do yourself a favor and pay for a Consultation with Suzanne. I guarantee you will leave her office educated, informed, and prepared to tackle your family legal matter head on!

I have had lawyers in the past and I find Suzanne henrickson the detailed focused attorney. Her debriefing of my case, information gathering and research of pertinent laws was simply amazing. I won my case beyond expectations. The fees and representation are well balanced

Absolutely outstanding attorney!
I hired Suzanne as Counsel for a child custody modification matter. From my initial consultation, I was extremely impressed with the amount of knowledge she has and the time she spent answering all of my questions. Suzanne was extremely organized, well prepared, responsive to all of my communications, and presented a case on my behalf with surgical precision. Kelly, Suzanne's assistant/paralegal, was diligent in her research and investigation of relevant facts in our matter. She's personable, detail oriented, and in less than a month was able to dissect my case and bring forth relevant facts and details that even I had never thought of. I would hire Suzanne a thousand times over. She is the attorney you want on your side. If you're looking for a smart, compassionate, organized, and dedicated attorney, I highly recommend Suzanne Henrickson.

Best attorney around!
I feel so blessed to have found Suzanne years ago. Knowing that she has my back if and when I need her gives me peace of mind. She is amazing at what she does! I feel confident that when I’m represented by Suzanne, I’m in the best possible hands.

Modification Case
Suzanne and Kelly are both wonderful. They far succeeded my expectations. Both Kelly and Suzanne are extremely knowledgeable. They made things so easy and comfortable. Suzanne was amazing in court and represented me and fought for me as if this was about her own life. I will never choose any other lawyer. Suzanne and Kelly are like family now. Thank you both for everything!
