Attorney Aaron is " A BEAST in the Courtroom. Nothing but RESPECT
2 Years ago, I took the stand of getting my freedom back. I knew I had to find someone to represent me. I could not walk into court by myself or without the proper representation. The Person I was divorcing, let us just say was not a fair person and his main goal was to make sure that he destroys me by any means necessary. I did not know where to start my search looking for a lawyer. So, with the era we are in I headed to social media. On our local town Facebook page, I asked for recommendations for the best lawyer in town. One who know about family law. While reading the suggestions/ comments I came upon a comment about a young lady who shared my same experience and she stated that her Attorney fought for her in and out of court and was truly knowledgeable of the law. If that was not enough her name was Attorney Edidiong Aaron. Words cannot express the gratitude and security I felt with Attorney Aaron and her staff. From the moment I called for my consultation till today Attorney Aaron and her team have been a constant positive force of energy in my life. While I am sure I was not the only client for the firm I sure felt like it. Communication was always on point. I felt heard, respected, and cared for. I was happy with the service Attorney Aaron and her team provided to me in the past couple of years. The final day of my hearing I was nervous, I do not like courtrooms, nor did I want to be in the same room with him. But walking into the courtroom with Attorney Aaron and her team, I knew I made the "RIGHT CHOICE". Talk about prepared and professional. I kid you not, my fear turned into "CONFIDANCE". I knew she would fight for me, but I never saw here in her element. At that time, she was a Lioness protecting her cub from any vultures. This have been a long ordeal for me, and not once Attorney Aaron and her team was tired or stop defending me and seeking my best interest. I know reviews should be short but there was nothing short about the service Attorney Aaron and her team provided to me. You do MATTER with this team.

Amazing Experience!
After working abroad for almost ten years, I repatriated home with my small children independently during a divorce. It was important for me to have black female representation because I wanted someone who looked like me, was relatable and was well versed in her craft. Attorney Aaron was absolutely phenomenal... from the start of the process while I was overseas to keeping me thoroughly informed of my case’s status, to handling all of the paperwork seamlessly, to ensuring we arrived stateside safely, and even ensured I made deadlines for other business affairs. She is the G.O.A.T., and she knows family law like the back of her hand! I highly recommend Attorney Aaron for anyone needing legal representation, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks again, Attorney Aaron and the Family Matters Law Group.

Excellent Experience, highly recommend
Attorney Aaron and Family Matters Law Firm are truly one of a kind and if you are on the fence about who to hire— look no further. From my first consultation, I felt like I was in good hands and I was absolutely right. They listened to every detail of my situation, built a strategy to help me walk away with exactly what I asked for and then DELIVERED. Attorney Aaron is so kind and caring towards her clients but turns on beast-mode when she gets inside the courtroom. Her knowledge of the law is exceptional and she was always 10-steps ahead of the other side. No matter what they tried to throw at us, she was prepared and she made sure that I was too. They entire staff at Family Matters really does make you feel like family. It was nice to know that whenever I called whoever answered the phone knew exactly what was going on in my case. It was clear that I didn’t just have a lawyer, I had an entire legal team on my side. Dealing with legal issues involving your children is never easy but Family Matters gave me peace of mind from the moment I hired them. I am so grateful for Attorney Aaron and her team. She is simply THE BEST!

Exceptional service with RESULTS
Words cannot express the gratitude our family has for Attorney Aaron. My son could not have hired a better attorney to help him gain shared joint custody of “his” children. Attorney Aaron sincerely supports parent’s rights and was determined to reunite my grandchildren with their father! We cannot be more grateful to her and her team. Professional, prepared, and EXTREMELY well versed in family law. May God continue to bless and strengthen this dynamic woman! (I indicated ‘consulted’ because my son hired her.)

Absolutely Recommend
I don't even know where to begin with this review... Let me start by saying I've had my fair share of dealing with different law firms for many years, so this review is not out of awe nor inexperience with what's out there. The staff members: I only worked with two closely- Edidiong and Amber. However, everyone in that office made me feel like a family member every time I called or messaged them. Everyone knew, in detail, what was going on in my case. They were able to answer my questions proficiently, no matter who picked up the phone. How do yall do that for each of your hundreds of clients? Blows my mind. Amber was generally my main point of contact throughout. She heard me cry, she heard me laugh, and she walked me through all of it. The process: The thing about FMLG is that they are expertly organized. For me that is a deal winner. They listen to your situation. They strategize. They give you a gameplan, tell you what they need, then tell you to sit back. There is no constant calling nor constant stress on you. Any and all communications, uploads, and correspondence was done via portal. I have to say this was the most seamless litigation process that I've experienced. The price: For me there was a consultation fee of over $100 (can't remember exactly). I would say the accrued total for this case is average compared with what I have paid in the past. They know what they are worth, and after working with them, I know what they are worth. Earlier I mentioned there was no constant stress after retaining this attorney. How much is the pricetag on your stress? The attorney: -Edidiong Aaron. It took me awhile to figure out how to say her name and I read the reviews looking... So here it is. (Uh-Dee-Dee-On) -A special name for such a special person. She is like a train, consistently ejecting power at full force towards her objective. She gets lost in her cases and empathizes the pain with each of her clients. However, she's definitely not afraid to tell you when she needs you to change your mind of thought. She fought through and through for me until she was able to bring my daughter home. Overall this was a painful experience for me just like it will be for anyone else who is looking at reviews trying to find a family lawyer. But this team, they are finely crafted in what they do. That pain you're feeling will die in time as your court case ends but what happens at the end of your court case is permanent. Choose wisely.

A mother and a Custody Case
Family Matters Law provided an excellent experience during a difficult time. Attorney Aaron was amazing, providing expert and honest advice throughout my custody case. As a mother I simply wanted to best for my son and she ensured that outcome for my son, he now has the power to have his voice heard, in addition I am receiving double the support financially. I'm grateful that I found her and her team through Google

Elite firm, Hands down
I’ve had an excellent and absolutely remarkable experience hiring the Family Matter Law Group Firm to assist me with my previous divorce decree after googling and read their reviews. This legal firm was dedicated in resolving my case and very professional. This firm assured me through actions that my case was significant to them, as it was to me. The Family Matter Law Group Firm heard my concerns and addressed all of them. The Family Matter Law Group Firm worked diligently with the re-modification of my child custody case that depicted me as a 39year old unreliable father, The firm had every unreasonable judgment overturned. As a result, I was awarded with joint custody and no child support because I love spending time with our (Defendant and I ) children.

Parent Plan Revision
I found attorney Aaron by doing a Google search and after reading the reviews I gave her office a call. I am so glad that I did! I was needing a revision of the parenting plan that I had in place with the father of my children. It was almost impossible for us to come to any kind of agreement, so I knew I needed a great lawyer. From my first conversation with attorney Aaron, I knew she was the one! She is sharp, caring, aggresive, attentive, prompt and what I liked most, a no-nonsense type of person. This was true for the rest of her staff as well. They were clear about what they needed of me and I never had to question if they were doing what they needed to do. The staff stayed on top of my case and in the end, I ended up with exactly what I desired and more. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and I would totally recommend them or use them again.

Divorce
I cannot say enough positive things about Mrs Edidiong Aaron and the Family matters law Group team. Navigating divorce and difficult exes is never a pleasant experience I remember how I find this law group after searching for a good law firm to represent me true google and decided to visit the office. But wasn’t convince about them offering an excellent representation. I walked in with the feeling of uncertainty before the conversation began but Mrs Edidiong Aaron quickly put me at ease and made a tough situation feel manageable. Mrs Edidiong listens completely and answers thoughtfully. Her advice is practical, logical, and proved to be spot on in every instance. Mrs Edidion Aaron is strategic and pragmatic in her practice and I felt like I had a true advocate in my corner throughout the process and for that, I'm so incredibly grateful. I highly recommend The family matters law group should you find yourself needing an amazing, caring, A+ advocate!

Best Decision Ever
Where do I start? There are so many things that I can say about my experience with the Family Matters Law Group. I’ll try to keep it brief but lay out my experience from beginning to end. Confidentiality The level of confidentiality that I received while working with Attorney Aaron’s law firm is TOP NOTCH. She has her appointments and office flow set up in such a way that protects your integrity in the case that clients happen to know of each other. I have never seen any of her clients, and it took two years for my case to conclude. Compassion. As a single parent, I was slightly intimidated by the fact that my child’s father (who had been completely absent at the time for 7 years) made 3 times my salary and had me served with paper requesting my daughter's name change, custody, child support, and a travel stipend (to name a few from the ridiculous list). I was and had never been the parent to keep my child from her father. However, it was his choice not to be a part of her life, so being served with paperwork that made such outlandish requests was a total shock to me. I explained to Attorney Aaron that I was 100% in favor of them building a relationship but wanted to make sure that my child was protected as hit with minimal emotional distress from the abrupt nature of the situation. We sat down TOGETHER and drafted a parenting plan. She listened and made sure that she addressed my concerns within the plan. Graduated visitation was my preference, and that is what she fought for my daughter to have. She works for YOU. The lady doesn’t play. She gave me deadlines to meet so that her office sent everything to the courts promptly. My case dragged on for two years because the father did not adhere to his counsel’s requirements and ignored requests from Attorney Aaron and the courts. The estranged father and I should have been resolved in mediation, but I promise you it felt like the father just wanted me to keep paying more money. It didn’t matter because Attorney Aaron was worth EVERY. PENNY. The same parenting plan Attorney Aaron presented to my daughter's father during the first 6 months of the case is the same plan that the father ultimately accepted. I could not have navigated this without the help of the Family Matters Law Group. I found Attorney Aaron from a google search of family law attorneys in Clayton County. I read every single review that was provided and felt comfortable with pulling the trigger. I couldn’t have made a better choice. Period. She is the Simone Biles of Family Law. I don’t anticipate needing her again, but I definitely would recommend her to anyone that needs representation.

Exceptional Service
In April, 2020 I was summons by my daughter’s father with a Petition for Legitimation. In my desperate need to fight for my daughter, I was referred to attorney Aaron by a very good friend. When I initially met Ms. Aaron, I was angry, frustrated but most of all terrified. Terrified because although I knew the father has the right to legitimate his child, in my case he wasn’t deserving of that. From my initial meeting with Ms. Aaron (and her staff) they gave me the confidence that I was in great hands and would fight and advocate for my rights. Ms. Aaron was honest and realistic in letting me know that while she would do everything in her power to fight for my case, she was honest enough to say that the case could go either way. Throughout my entire case, Ms. Aaron and her staff were very communicative and what the next steps were. Every letter, filing and/or communication that would go out was communicated to me before hand and my opinion even mattered. While I gave them their space to work on my case, they were literally a phone call away for every question, comments and concerns I had. They even allowed me to vent! In the midst of my case, my daughter’s father and attorney withdrew from the case, yet I still had a fight within in and that was to regain my attorneys fees and all the unnecessary expenses I had incurred in this case by no fault of my own. On the morning of my final hearing, unknowing of what the outcome of my case would be, I thanked Ms. Aaron for her services. One would think one would wait to hear the end results before giving thanks but I had to thank her AND her team before hand because from the moment I met with her and her team, I knew they were worth it. The way Ms. Aaron fought my case and the way her team worked on every detail of my case made me feel as if I was their only client. Their means of communicating every detail with me and answering my phone calls and emails was truly an exceptional service. They truly made me feel important but most of all treated me as family not just a client. As for the outcome of my case, the victory was ours and I have God and the Family Matters Law Group to thank.

Excellent Outcome and Piece of Mind
I was lucky enough to have Attorney Aaron and the Family Matters Law Group recommended to me by a family friend. I had been in and out of the court system over the past several years battling custody issues with my ex. Having gone through 3 prior attorney's before finding them, and being a Male seeking custody in a mostly conservative system, let's just say that my chances and hopes weren't at an all time high of obtaining an outcome that I would deem satisfactory. I listened intently to her team and followed her instructions to a T, and the outcome that I received was much greater than my expectations. 5 stars is not enough to rate the service, respect, attentiveness, responsiveness and outcome that I received. I would highly recommend utilizing Family Matters Law Group!

Custody modification
I am a father of two girls pertaining to my case. I’ve been beyond discouraged with the court system for 3-4 years until meeting Mrs. Aaron and her staff! They work diligently and always stayed in contact with my wife or myself to keep us updated on all of our court proceedings which helped with my daily stress and ultimately brought our girls back home. My wife is huge on reviews and noticed that most if not all of the clients with Family Law Matters Group we overjoyed by the outcome of their case. We feel so blessed to have met the team at Family Law Matters Group who helped bring our kids home!

Look No Further!!
After doing an extensive search I ran across Family Matters Law Group online. After reading the reviews I decided to consult with Attorney Aaron about my divorce case. The first day I spoke with Attorney Aaron I instantly knew she would be the perfect fit for my case. Her professionalism, knowledge, patience, demeanor, and the overall welcoming to her office made me feel as though she as well as her amazing staff cared about my case. The staff at Family Matters Law Group are very prompt when getting things done. Everything that I asked for in my divorce Attorney Aaron made sure it happened and I’m forever grateful. If you’re looking for an Attorney that’s a beast when it comes to litigating then look no further. I could go on and on but this law firm is definitely your go to if you’re looking for someone to handle your case. Special thanks to Arian and Enjoli for doing such an amazing job as well. I give this Law firm ten plus stars.

Simply The Best
My experience with the team at Family Matters Law Group can only be described as exceptional. I found this firm via an internet search and the search result turned out to be a blessing. Throughout each step of the process, Attorney Aaron and her staff provided a true sense of comfortability and assurance that my case mattered, which was important to me as a female. The advice I received was always timely, thorough, and fair; covering every possible outcome, so I could make as educated a decision as possible. In a time where many in the legal field will tell you what you want to hear, as long as the check clears, this was refreshing. They say preparedness breeds confidence. Well, as a result of Attorney Aaron’s depth of knowledge of my case and applicable case law, I was able to walk into court brimming with it. Not only did I come out victorious, on both occasions I was represented by Attorney Aaron, I received everything I asked for. This wasn’t happenstance. It was a testament to her competence, proficiency, and command of the court room. Opposing counsel didn’t stand a chance! I hope I never have to file contempt of court regarding child custody again, but if I must for that or anything relating to family law, the first and only call for representation will be to Family Matters Law Group!

A Super team!
I found attorney Aaron on avvo.com and after reading her awesome reviews I decided to give her a try and I am so happy I did. Attorney and her staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. They're organization and communication is truly impeccable and I felt at ease knowing that I had them on my side. Another plus is their payment system. They understand how costly legal procedures can be and had several options to help alleviate that burden for me. My case was divorce/ child custody and I couldn't be any happier with the outcome. If I can give them 10 stars I absolutely would.

My name is Morris S., In 2018 I was in need of legal assistance concerning a child custody case. I decided to do a google search looking for a female attorney. I came across the Family Matter Law Group and reading upon Attorney Edidiong Aaron, one of the things that cought my attention was that Fathers Matter Too! An advocate of a father's right, I knew my search had ended. Through a process of legal matters, I was awarded custody of my son in 2019. I want to thank Attorney Edidiong Aaron and her legal team at Family Matters Law Group.Thank you for the constant communication through the entire process. MEN, your search ends here!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I had the pleasure of being the opposing counsel in a case against a party who was represented by Attorney Edidiong Aaron. It is rare that I say this about an opposing counsel, but Attorney Aaron certainly gave me a run for my money! She was thoroughly prepared each time we went to court, was professional both inside and outside the courtroom while still aggressively advocating for her client, and was a legal eagle when it came to her knowledge of the case laws and statutes. She certainly kept me on my toes! I have the utmost respect for Attorney Aaron and her practice of the law. Any client who hires her is guaranteed to get more than what they paid for. Any opposing counsel who has to face Attorney Aaron will be in for a rude awakening if they are even the slightest unprepared! Attorney Aaron brings the meaning back to true advocacy, which is rare to find in attorneys these days."
