Best divorce lawyer you could ask for
Mr. Bodiford was the best decision I could have made when choosing a divorce attorney. He is was honest through out the entire process. He doesn’t mince words and will give it to you straight. If you want someone who is fair, honest, and firm. Don’t hesitate to put him on your team. Mr. Bodiford’s office team is just as great as he is. They are the most professional and kind group of people you will ever encounter. All of this goes a long way when dealing with something as difficult and emotional as a divorce. He was the best and I can’t thank him enough for his support and professionalism.

Divorce
Mr. Bodiford was incredible. I knew from the first meeting that he would support me and help me through a difficult time in my life. He gave me outstanding advice, was patient, responded quickly to my questions and concerns, and always looked out for me and my kids.

Best attorney around!
Allen and his team are exactly what you need if you are dealing with family law issues. He tirelessly fought for my case for almost three years and saw it to the end. Allen is honest but is no nonsense. Allen and his team kept me informed the entire process and I am very grateful for their hard work.

Personal injury auto. accident case
Allen was my attorney for a personal injury automobile accident case that went on for almost 3 years. He was very professional yet aggressive against the insurance company's attorney. We were able to resolve the case at mediation and Allen zealously represented my interests, and helped me get a great outcome. His office staff was very responsive and always got back to me that same day if I had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Allen and his team if you are going through a legal matter! They are experienced and very professional.

Professional, Competent, and Relentless
Mr. Bodiford and his staff provided the utmost professional service in my contempt proceeding. Mr. Bodiford was clear on the facts of the matters at hand and explained his approach. He was prepared and represented me to the FULLEST. Mr. Bodiford fought relentlessly for me and exceeded my expectation. I couldn't be more satisfied. I would hire him again without hesitation. I highly recommend Mr. Bodiford and his staff for legal services and expertise.

Excellent Divorce Attorney!
Attorney Bodiford is fantastic! He is a fierce fighter and works with a wonderfully efficient and professional staff. During initial consultation I asked him if he would be able to help me. He replied, “ Yes. And I’m going to fight to make sure your daughter is good.” And he was true to his word every step of the way! I highly recommend.

Awesome!
Allen, Katie and Julie are very responsive. He’s the perfect bulldog for my custody case. Focus on his message, and you won’t have any issues. Thanks so much for getting my kids what they needed. It’s the best way to spend money I didn’t want to spend. I would give six stars if I could. Thanks again.

I couldn't have hired a better Law Firm! Bodiford Law
Mr. Bodiford and his "Team" are the "Best of the Best" and there is nobody in "Henry County Georgia" that can protect you more than Mr. Bodiford and his "ACE TEAM". From start to finish, it is all FACT BASED, they are very intelligent, informative, and have strong backbones. They are truly Professional. You are in good hands once you have the Bodiford Team in your corner. If I would have hired "ANYONE" else, things would have "FOR SURE" turned out with a different outcome than the one that I got. Best Divorce Attorney in Henry County Georgia! Hands down. Mr. Bodiford is like having "SUPERMAN" as an Attorney!

Excellent Divorce Attorney
If you're looking for a Top Notch Divorce Attorney , then look no further! Mr. Bodiford knows the law, and will fight for you til the very end. He's a "True Trial" attorney!!! If I could mark 6 Stars I would. He's a straight shooter, so expect to here the truth, and not some hype to get your money. Plus, he's the only attorney that would speak to me about my case before coming into the office; and he's affordable! His team is knowledgeable and friendly (Thanks Julie & Kaitlyn for everything!), plus they keep you informed and on track with submitting all the necessary paperwork. Now, don't think this is some magic show. You have to get them all the necessary information and be honest with what's happening. If you do your part, you can relax and let them do theirs. Bottom line... "For Anything Family Law", I give them my highest approval (and I'm not easily impressed), and will definitely send my family and friends their way. Thanks For Everything!!!

Worth every penny spent. He is a very honest and up front attorney that does not just tell you what you want to hear. He fought hard to win our case and did an amazing job presenting the evidence and our claims in court. He not only adequately prepared me but was thorough and tough. Mr. Bodiford fought for our family and constantly made me feel at ease during the process. His expertise is unmatched.

Always professional leaves no stone unturned
Mr Bodiford fought a two year long divorce for me. What I liked about Mr Bodiford was he always returned calls and kept me real time updated on motions and discovery findings.By far the most courteous and professional law firm I have ever dealt with. Mr Bodiford’s staff is second to none! He won my case and has been helpful post divorce.I highly recommend Mr Bodiford’s law firm.

Professional and prepared
Mr. Bodiford took the time to understand my situation. As a blue collar guy, I needed a lawyer who could navigate me through a tough custody situation. I was able to consult with Mr. Bodiford on Saturday mornings leading up to my court date. Mr. Bodiford and his partner Lauren Taylor both represented me in court and teamed up to get the results we were seeking.

Honest and willing
I was recommended to Mr. Allen by a judge when I was falsely accused of a crime. He heard my side of the story, he was completely honest with me. He told me not worry about anything and he would handle it. And he has been handiling it as a true professional. He gives me constant updates to the situation, and is honest about everything. He doesn't guarantee anything but he will tell you your odds. I love how upfront he his, and his prices are fair. If you're looking for a #1 attorney choose Allen. You get what you pay for and he is worth it.

Highly Recommended!
Allen Bodiford is an extremely conscientious attorney and because of his wisdom and experience he won my case. He provided a realistic strategy, timeline, and expense – then proved he was right! This is the kind of attorney you can hire and rely on him to get the job done. I got out of his way and he did the rest – which was outstanding! His work is meticulous, error-free, and legally sound. He has a legal staff that produces flawless documents with a true sense of urgency. The timeliness of their actions prove they are professional, dedicated, and reliable. Allen Bodiford has a straight-forward approach that is refreshing. His matter-of-fact delivery gets to the core of the facts and he keeps an ethical eye on the legal fee meter to help his clients avoid costly, no value added actions. Mr. Bodiford is highly intelligent and has a solutions based style. He respects the other legal entities in his community and speaks about each one with appropriate professional courtesy. This attorney brings respectability back to the legal field. He manages a first-class law office and I am deeply grateful for his help. I highly recommend this attorney!

Recommendation
I would like to take a moment to provide a recommendation for a wonderful attorney and his entire team. Mr. Allen Bodiford and his entire team are the most outstanding proficient group of business individuals that I have ever dealt with, and having worked for AT&T for 35 years I am familiar with what good service is all about. Mr. Bodiford is a brilliant, experienced, knowledgeable attorney. His support staff is prompt, accurate, and timely in every action needed for you and your individual needs. Mr. Bodiford’s firm is a personal group, and you do not feel like just another client. Everyone at the firm is familiar with your particular needs and situation. They answer the phone, they respond quickly, and you never have to wait very long for a personal response. Mr. Bodiford is not a therapist he is an attorney. He is tough, but I needed tough. He would not allow me feel sorry for myself. He helped me to stand up when I didn’t know if I could. He gave me stern direction when I needed it, and a guiding hand through-out the entire process. He didn’t allow me to give up, but encouraged me to fight! If you need legal expertise, and you want to win and have support along the entire journey Mr. Allen Bodiford and his team is the group you MUST choose. I am more than willing to provide testimony to anyone anywhere about my experience with the Bodiford team.
