About me

 


I represent clients in all aspects of family law, including Pre and Post - Nuptial Agreements, Divorces, Modification Actions and Contempt Actions. I am a member of the Family Law Sections of the State Bar of Georgia, the Atlanta Bar, and the Cobb County Bar Association where I served as President. I  frequently lecture at family law seminars.


Law & Politics and Atlanta Magazine recognizes me as a “Super Lawyer” in the area of Family Law.  I have  an AV Preeminent Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ and a “10-Superb” rating in Avvo.com.  I represent clients in all of the Greater Atlanta Metropolitan Counties including: Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Forsyth and Cherokee counties.


 


I earned a B.S. in Finance from Virginia Tech in 1989 and received my J.D. from the University of Georgia in 1996. Prior to attending law school, I was a Financial Analyst for a Fortune 500 company preparing, analyzing, and auditing financial statements. This experience enhances my ability to comprehend complex business valuations and to understand tracing of comingled funds.

  • Marc Brian Hershovitz

    I have worked with Wayne when some of my clients had legal matters that involved family-law issues. I found Wayne to be very professional and detail oriented, both of which are important when dealing with legal problems. Wayne also has a great deal of empathy for his clients. I have referred others to Wayne when they needed help with family-law matters. Wayne is an excellent attorney.
