Elena Sanchez-Curtis was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2010. Ms. Sanchez-Curtis did not immediately enter the practice of law after graduating college. Instead, she spent 17 years in the IT sales and sales management field. This business experience, and her own experience with co-parenting, allows Ms. Sanchez-Curtis to bring practicality and clear headed strategies to family law proceedings. This same practicality and analytical thinking is leveraged in her equine law practice and her approach to general problem solving.

Ms. Sanchez-Curtis joined the Magistrate Bench of Forsyth County effective January 1, 2020 and looks forward to serving the community.

After nearly fifty years, Ms. Sanchez-Curtis is still an avid equestrian, a sport she pursues with her family.

Knowledgeable attorney willing to go the extra mile
Excellent experience with Mrs Sanchez-Curtis in regards to my legal issue. Her communication was incredible, she kept me updated regularly on my case and was always available to speak via phone if I had questions or concerns. She was extremely well versed with equine related law and helpful in guiding me through its legal process.

Highly Recommended
We are so thankful that we hired Elena to help us settle a dispute over our pony that was out on lease. She gave us great advice and was able to help us resolve the issue quickly and without going to arbitration.

100% hands on and extremely professional
I have been very blessed to have had Sanchez Curtis Law LLC take my divorce case. Elena and her staff have represented me with professionalism and genuine caring for me and my case. They have always been very straight forward and kept me informed of each step and what the options, risks and possible outcomes were. I have always received an answer to each and every one of my many phone calls, emails and texts messages during different times of the day in a very prompt time. I truly appreciate their time to listen, and the guidance they gave me when I needed to make the right decisions without fear and confidence. They exceeded my expectations in every way. Thank you, thank you very much. I recommend them 100%.

Fabulous! For easy and hard cases
After my husband just up and left. I needed help. Elena and her team somehow in the middle of Covid found him, got him to agree to what I wanted and made the divorce as smooth as possible. In the middle of this I had another issue completely different. I text her late one night not expecting a reply. Within seconds she called me and told me how “we” would be handling the situation, I didn’t have to do it alone which was a huge relief.

Got the result that I needed.
Elena and her staff are great to work with. I was definitely glad to have her on my side dealing with the legitimation of my daughter and parental rights. They were always there to take my calls and were always very helpful. I am very pleased with the end result and would strongly suggest working with this group.

Best attorney I’ve had the pleasure of working with
How I wish I could go back in time and hire Elena to handle my divorce and custody modification from the get-go. I would’ve saved myself (and my wallet) from a world of hurt. About two years after my divorce, I decided to file for a child support and custody modification. I was ill-equipped for the battle that came after, and in a moment of desperation hired the first attorney that I met with. What a mistake that was. After ten long months of no action from him that left me vulnerable and defensive in my own case, I parted ways with him in search of someone aggressive who could get it done for my family. I consulted with several attorneys all over Atlanta, and left many of those consultations in tears after being told over and over that nothing could be done at that point. Basically the damage was done. But I was not about to work with someone again who wasn’t on my side. I received a call back from Elena’s office the same day I contacted them, and went for a consultation that afternoon. We had her on retainer before I left the office. Elena was straightforward with me, admitting that my case would be challenging, but she also suggested strategies that no one else had. First off by getting a guardian ad litem involved. As intimidating as that was, it was the best and only way to move forward, and I was shocked that no other attorney had so much as mentioned the idea. She took on my case knowing that she had a large and sloppy mess to clean up, but got to work immediately. Elena has a way of making you feel confident in the direction you’re taking without “sugar coating” anything or giving unrealistic expectations of how things could turn out. She and her team have worked hard to reverse the damage. They always kept me on track during discovery, and even broke a timeline down for me to follow so the time-sensitive task wasn’t overwhelming. She is incredibly responsive, and continues to answer the barrage of questions I throw her way. She offers priceless guidance every step of the way, and always helps me navigate any issue that arises. Something as simple as helping me decide how to respond to an email or text (of which there are many), is just one of the reasons I continue to be impressed by her service. Through failed mediation (not on our part) to my upcoming trial, Elena has shown me not only how to be a better co-parent, but also how to move on with my life in spite of this year-and-a-half long battle. While we aren’t done just yet, as my trial is coming up, the end is FINALLY within reach. All thanks to Elena. We’ve already decided to keep her on retainer after trial as we expect more (albeit less challenging) road bumps in the future. For the first time since my divorce, I feel positive about the future for my family. Elena and her team are simply the best. I will be forever grateful for her compassion, kindness, knowledge, and go-getter attitude. Look no further. Do yourself a favor and choose Elena. You will not be disappointed.

Custody case
I hired Elena Sanchez-Curtis for my custody case and before I even work with her, I heard from a friend how she fights for her clients at court and stands up for them. She has been the same handling my case, she made things less stressful and worked late with me to get my case ready. She is always been there to answer my questions and step up for me when I needed her to interfere during the case to handle certain interactions with ex. She is a pleasure to work with.

Satisfied Client
Thank you Elena for your help, determination, courage, skills and hard work. I appreciate that you did not give up on me neither the children. Thank you for arranging mediation to resolve the matter quickly out of court despite the hardships that were thrown your way, I saw a lawyer who supported, understood and who fought with grace and total professionalism. Your efforts have made a long lasting impact and turned a nightmare into a fabulous dream. You have fought and reclaimed a piece of justice that we needed and made right some of the wrongs. You cared , well prepared and well argued. Thank you for displaying experience and skill to get the best possible results for me. Some people go the extra mile, thank you for being one of them. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my entire family/friends. If you want a lawyer that wont flinch no matter the nature of your case in front of her Elena is your lawyer, thank you again for defending me in every instance you made me get what i needed.

Solved an expensive problem
We had a difficult situation with a non-performing contractor who would not return our deposit. Elena managed to get out money back without going to court. We completely recommend her as a problem solver.

Caring, Very Involved, Available
Elena was referred to me by a friend, and I am so glad that I took his advice to see Elena. For my post divorce issues, she has been a Godsend. Elena has stood up to opposing counsel's bullying, has been creative in her approach, and has gone above and beyond because I believe she truly cares about her clients. That is why I have referred three of my friends to Elena, who have all retained her as well. I wanted an attorney who cared about my situation and was knowledgeable about the law- I have gotten that and SO much more from Elena.
