Pam is an incredible lawyer and human being. I have had the pleasure of being represented by her and have felt completely taken care of from day one. She has gone above and beyond in my case. I hired her to replace another lawyer who began over charging me for less and less work. I have an extremely difficult ex who has been dragging my case on unnecessarily and she has been handling it with utmost care and attention and has been a source of comfort through this difficult time. She has been a real advocate for me and understands the difficult situation I am in. She won me a portion of my exes stock options, which I would not have received had I not hired her. My other lawyer had not even mentioned this. Thankfully my ex dragged it on, had he not, I would not have fought for this. She has made my life better for having her as my lawyer. Truly what a lawyer's duty really is.

Honest & Dependable Attorney
Ms. Bettis handled my child custody case and did an excellent job! She is very prompt in responding and staying on top of everything involved with the case. She also was brutally honest with me thru out the entire process. Ms. Bettis is very compassionate and cares about her clients and wants the most positive outcome for everyone. If you are looking for a great attorney that will get the job done then pick Pam Bettis!

I would recommend anyone to Pam Bettis that needs a compassionate honest attorney. She provided my family with the best advice even if it wasn't always what we wanted to hear. She always responded in a timely manner and when we needed her she reacted quickly. What I loved most about Pam was her compassion for my son and the way she encouraged him and lifted up him throughout his entire ordeal. She believed in him and that means everything. Her legal assistant Kelly was also on top of her game and made me feel like I was important when I had a question.

Great Lawyer!!
Miss Bettis, was a terrific lawyer! She was professional, always returned my phone calls, answered any questions I had big or small. My family had a tramatic car wreck and she handled everything for us. I would definitely recommend her to everyone. She also was compassionate about our fears. We are so glad we choice her.

The services I received from Ms. Bettis were far above what I had expected. She genuinely cares about her clients and worked tirelessly on my behalf to ensure a positive outcome for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need or representation.

Lies, Lies and more Lies! She took our money and gave us false hope! Thank God we had enough time to fire her and retain a real attorney! Dont waste your money on her ..she is a joke as an attorney!

Mistake from the beginning
From the first consultation with Ms. Bettis she gave us inaccurate information causing us to lose our case before we even got started! On more than one occasion she acted first and then asked our permission when we would never have OK'd it to begin with. She can't ever keep up with what she has said (even when it is in an email for her to look back over), and often does the complete opposite of what she said she would do or what we asked her to do. Due to her incompetence, we got into a legal battle we never had a chance of winning because she told us multiple times we could win and gave us wrong information. Please don't waste your money on her, unless you plan on lots of frustration and money lost!

Endorse Pamela
Family Attorney | Jun 04
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Pam is an amazing lawyer. She and I have been co-counsel on numerous criminal cases, not only is she brilliant, but she truly cares about her clients. I do not handle family law cases, so I refer those cases to Pam and her law partner on a daily basis. I know my clients are getting the best possible care if Pam is their lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 27
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse Ms. Bettis, wholeheartedly. She is an excellent trial attorney who works tirelessly on behalf of her clients. She works cases to discovery all the relevant information, and uses that to the client's benefit; while, at the same time, being upfront and honest with her clients, other attorneys, and the court(s). There's not a better criminal defense attorney on Atlanta's southside."
Unknown Attorney | May 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked with Pam on multiple cases, and each time it is a pleasure. She is fair, yet dedicated to achieving the best outcome for her client. Pam is an asset to our legal community."
