April came recommended by my lawyer Sonya Ground as a help with the mediation for my divorce. When I met April she heard what my case was about and figured out ways to find more about things that I didnt know were possible. At mediation she went over the things that I needed to talk about and if there was anything else I could bring up. During that time she explained to me what was offered in case I didnt understand and was very helpful the whole time. We were able to come to an agreement that both parties were agreeable to and not have to come back for another session.
If anyone came to me asking if I knew someone that could help out with a legal problem I would tell them to find her.

April is an attorney with a heart. After the first time speaking with April, I knew I had to hire her to represent me. She was very understanding and compassionate but most of all she knows the law. Her confidence gave me peace of mind. She was very upfront with what she needed and what to expect going forward in the case and she was 100% correct in the outcome. April is not one of those attorneys that runs up fees at every opportunity. If I were in need of an attorney in the future there is no doubt April Stancliff will be my first call.
I have nothing but respect for April, she is truly a blessing.

Divorce is one of the most difficult and emotionally draining experiences in life but I was truly blessed to have April on my side during it all. Even my ex-husband said that I had a really good attorney. I was married over 20 years and my spouse was a member of the military which added an additional layer to the normal factors that arise in divorce. To further complicate matters I was in the middle of a federal disability claim when the divorce happened. To say my case was complicated seems like an understatement. However, April was a true pro throughout it all. She was knowledgeable about not only GA state law but the military laws involved and the disability component as it related to my divorce. I had a different disability attorney. April assisted me with obtaining a temporary court order when my ex stopped paying me which was critical as the divorce process took almost a year to complete. She explained everything she was doing and why it was important even necessary in some instances to do things a specific way. She was understanding of my situation and cared about my feelings enough to truly listen to what issues where important to me. I knew that if she was advising me to do something I could trust her judgment. And trust is so important when your future is literally dependant on the outcome of a case. You want April in your corner at a time like that and I was very fortunate to have her. Not only did she successfully argue my case so that I was awarded lifetime medical coverage which my ex was trying to block me from she also got me the full alimony I was seeking, child support and a large portion of my legal fees paid by my ex husband. There was more that she was able to get awarded but lets just say my ex never had a chance with April at the wheel. She is more than just your lawyer she is your champion and when you are already in a stressful situation as it is you need someone like that to fight for you. I highly recommend April. Her level of dedication and knowledge of the law is exceptional. I will never be able to thank her enough for all that she has done for me and my kids.
