Brilliant Attorney
Ms. Duke, there is not enough stars that you can rate Ms. Duke on her personal and professional attributes. Ms. Duke took on our case and I just can’t describe the knowledge, passion, and fight inside of her. She is a very honest up front attorney from the beginning. She delivers on her promises and commitment to your case and welfare of your family. We were guided to Ms. Duke to end the torment me and my family had been going through for 2 yrs. competent, knowledgeable, brilliant, strong, professional ethics inside and out of the court system. I would give her and her firm 100 stars if I could. She will be the attorney of choice again should a law situation ever occurs again. THANK YOU Ms. Duke just doesn’t feel like enough to say!! THANK YOU TO INFINITY!!!!!

Awesome!
Ms. Duke was fabulous!!! Not only did she get my husband and me full custody of my stepson but I feel like she truly cared. Anytime we had questions she was always there to answer them. I would recommend her to everyone and call her again if any situations should arise.

Dedicated To Clients!
I have been a client of the Duke Law Firm for years. Although they have many cases you always feel that yours is important. I have never called or sent an email that has not been answered right away by Desiree. If she is out of the office then her associates are quick to follow up. Appointments are prompt and efficient. Everyone is always warm and reassuring. They do everything in their power to acquire a good outcome for their clients. Court cases are difficult, Desiree has always taken time to listen to my concerns and is one of the most caring and compassionate people that I have ever met. I am thankful for her advice throughout the years. She works very diligently for her clients, to achieve great results for challenging cases, coming up with solutions when there doesn’t seem to be one. Desiree as well as the rest of the firm are dedicated, hardworking and strive to achieve a successful outcome for every client. It is a firm that will be there for you every step of the way! I cannot say enough about her and the entire staff. I highly recommend them. They are an amazing law firm!

Excellent experience
Desiree is the best and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. She genuinely cares about her clients and the outcome of their cases. She handled my divorce and helped to make the process as easy as possible. She was always there to answer any questions I had regarding my case. i couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer!

Great personal injury attorney
I worked primarily with Ms. Duke's associate attorney Timothy and his paralegal Peter. They took on the City of Hogansville and won! They represented both me and my daughter. They also made headline news in the local paper for suing the city. My daughter and I both treated with doctors that was networked with the firm, we got better and got paid. This firm even the legal staff was both very professional and knowledgeable. I called several months after settlement concerning a bill that I received that was never paid, and they helped me get it paid even after the case was closed! Thanks Desiree! I strongly recommend your firm.

Worse attorney did not meet our needs at all
This law firm supposed to had visited with my son and grand daughter, instead they visited with the mother and the courts gave my grand daughter back to the mother. My son never was visited and paid 1750 and he cannot get his money back. This mother sent fake emails to this law firm saying they were from me. Time will tell. All I can do is wish my grand daughter the best and pray God watches over her forever. I know I will never see her again, but I am at peace. This was done to my grand daughter by her mother and when my son took my grand daughter to see you she was sick that morning with an upset stomach. You could have at least seen him. He is a good guy and works very hard. I don't understand why good people get hurt so bad by bad people. Lawyers don't want justice. This baby is 5 years old. Of course the mother is going to be on good behavior around you. I pray nothing happens to my grand daughter. Anyone who sends fake messages and fake emails, there has to be something wrong with them. Why should a 4 year old have vaginitis and 12 cavities. That is neglect. I am not saying you are a bad lawyer, but you should have visited my son too since you were paid 1750 to do so. Why do my grand child have to suffer. Also my son's attorney assistant who sat with my grand daughter in the court library today said my granddaughter told her "I had a dream that my mother tried to kill me with a knife ", this is the same dream my son told you about when he visited you last week for 10 minutes, but you were in a rush to go to court. My granddaughter told us that you asked her about her head and she told you that her mother pulled her hair out and yet you feel that you have made the right decision in this custody case. GOD PLEASE TAKE CARE OF MY GRANDDAUGHTER PLACE YOUR BLOOD OVER HER. Amen. I love you grandma.

Hated giving her even 1 star
Only thing I ever heard from her is more money, more money. Never, ever got an email or phone call from her about my case, I always had to call. I should have asked around before giving her money because local business leaders said stay away!!!!

Be Careful, they're just after $$
Got in trouble for a small thing years ago so as a freshmen in college and I immediately went to this law firm to seek advice and help. I discussed the situation with an older gentlemen at this law firm and I ended up hiring them to represent me as his recommendation. At the end I ended up paying more in lawyer fees and fine fees than to the individuals I knew who were in a similar situation with no or different lawyer.

Desiree Duke did not return my calls and was not honest about my case
My calls were often not returned or returned at a much later date. She showed little interest in my case and often dismissed my concerns. The case turned out to be a disaster which was no surprise. I was I had used a different attorney.

Worst Attorney In Carrollton Ga
Desiree had zero care for the drastic issues that were brought to her regarding this case. Constantly canceled appointments and even court hearing at will. Zero professionalism was given regarding the matters at hand. I'm not sure if she was in cahoots with the opposing attorney or just wanted to rake in the money on this case but either way she found excuse after excuse to cancel and reschedule hearing only to cancel them again. Time after time she was advised of the horrible situation for which she pretended to care about yet showed no regard to in her actions. Worst attorney in Carrollton Georgia by far. You would go elsewhere if you only knew the misery.

REVIEW
My review on this law firm is low beyond low. I never received phone calls back when I need them, but when the other party needed me they would contact me for them. I lost my children because they did not do their job. I had sole custody before that. Then when my children are not returned to me I can't even get a phone call as to why. Then I did not even know papers were filed and had to request them from courthouse myself two weeks after they were signed. Anything I asked them to do they would not do it and could have easily won my case with proper papers done. Now I have no children to thank them for. 0 percent recommendation.
