About Christy

Learn Christy’s areas of practice.

When I am not in court or in the office, I am usually on the road - either via foot participating in various 5ks, 10ks and half marathons or travelling either abroad or to my favorite U.S. city, New Orleans.

I also enjoy spending time with my nieces and my furbabies (dogs and cats).

June 12, 1996 - I was sworn in as a member of the State Bar of Georgia by the Honorable Robert J. James in the Superior Court of Douglas County.

Great Attorney
Christy was great in my most vulnerable time. She gave great counsel. She calmed me in my rage and reigned in the crazy that was coming from stress. She even mentored my wife who was a new attorney.

Above & Beyond
Christy was my lawyer for two separate adoptions. She and her staff were very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had. They made an already wonderful experience of adopting even better.

Too busy to care. Don't bother.
Far too many irons in the fire. Always in a hurry, absorbed with her other clients and does not fight for the best interests of her clients or have the time for researching or doing the best for her clients. Has no understanding of children with special needs. Depends on her paralegal for most of her work. Would never use again.
