Top award-winning family lawyer in Georgia. The experience you need and the best results possible.
My practice is devoted exclusively to family law. I know that each of my clients is going through one of the toughest times in his or her life, and I use my experience and approach to guide them through the process to get the best result possible under their circumstances. I've handled on complex litigation involving significant financial assets and closely held businesses, and have been lead counsel in jury trials and divorce trials involving child custody as well as all the rest of the issues that come from a divorce or other family law actions. I listen, so I know what is important to my clients. I also prepare prenuptial agreements and have litigated to have these agreements either enforced or alternatively to have them set aside.
Steve joined Kessler & Solomiany as a Senior Attorney in 2014 after practicing family law with Warner, Bates, McGough, McGinnis & Portnoy for many years.
