First Impression
Her staff was very welcoming and professional. During consultation, Attorney Trimble was very knowledgeable, straightforward, and professional. When we presented her with our situation, she did not provide any false hope, but more of a realistic analysis of addressing our questions and concerns. I was more than ready to retain her as our legal representation.

I had a consultation with Attorney Trimble. Really nice and knowledgeable attorney who provided me with some valuable information about my case, not only for me to hire her, but if I wanted to pursue the case on my own, which is something you probably wouldn't get from another attorney. I highly recommend her and/or her firm to anyone seeking honest legal advice.

Attorney Trimble and her staff are by far the best family law firm in Georgia.  Attorney Trimble's attention to detail and level of sensitivity, professionalism and an all-inclusive concern during this difficult yet emotional time made the process less stressful. I personally witnessed her as an aggressive litigator as well as a great listener and advocate which causes her to stand out amongst her peers. Chisolm Trimble & Assoc. far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend this firm for anyone experiencing a serious legal matter involving you or your family! Ayeshia

Custody Case
First and foremost she indirectly told me fighting for my rights as a primary parent was petty. I paid $200 for a consultation where I fell attorney Chisolm-Trimble did not provide me with patience nor understanding. It seemed to me that she felt my matter was what it was and she’s not a fighter type of lawyer and would like easy cases. I told her my sons fathers initial attorney withdrew representation from him in 2021. Because she was not listening she told me that when “my lawyer withdrew I should’ve gotten another one and she doesn’t understand why I would represent myself”. Had she been listening she would’ve known I never secured a lawyer because the case was just for legitimation in 2021 not custody. Therefore I would not suggest paying $200 for a consultation from her because she’s indirectly rude. Ms. Williams (Office Admin) however was very kind and represents the firm well and is why I agreed to pay the $200 for the consultation. I thought the attorneys demeanor would be the same; however it was not. The consultation ended with me waiting to speak with Ms. Williams regarding retaining the attorney and I was on hold too long. My original consultation was scheduled for 4:30p, Ms. Williams called me at 2:40p to ask if I would mind pushing the consultation up to 4p I obliged just to have to wait until 4:20p anyway. So it’s a strong no for me.
