I have been representing clients in Fayette County and Coweta County since 1994. My practice areas include family law and divorce, criminal law as well a bankruptcy. As a Iocal attorney I am well versed in how to get your case resolved fairly and quickly. While I try to resolve cases by negotiation, I am willing to go to trial to make sure I get the best results for my clients.
I recommend that you hire an attorney who practices mostly in your county and who does a large volume of cases. A good attorney usually has a great deal of experience in front of the judges in his county and can estimate what a judge is likely to do in certain circumstances. This is useful as you will have an advocate who can advise you of your settlement options, which can lower costs. You want an attorney who is confident and can present your evidence in an organized way, but is also willing consider reasonable offers. An attorney should return telephone calls within 24 hours and promptly prepare all paperwork.
You should feel that your attorney is your advocate and cares about you and your situation, but that he also will give you a reality check about your chances in court. I have been practicing law since 1990 and have been practicing mostly in Coweta and Fayette County since 1993. Here is a link to the Fayette County Bar Association.
