Aaron was exactly what I was looking for when I needed help drafting up a prenuptial agreement. He sat down with me and asked me exactly what I was looking for and advised on several blindspots I had not considered. Most importantly he educated me throughout the whole process which I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll be recommending Aaron to my friends who need help with their prenuptials.

calm and reassuring
Aaron took a lot of the fear out of my divorce. He’s so calm and reassuring, kind and intelligent. He quickly understood and addressed my concerns, like child custody and support, and protecting my assets. We considered worst and best case scenarios and something in between so it was much less scary. Aaron gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my divorce and I am very happy with the results.

Trusted Advisor
Aaron will be on my speed-dial until my eight-year-old son turns 18, and on my Christmas card list forever! He handled my high-conflict divorce two years ago and continues to help me every time custody needs to be clarified with my ex. I’m an attorney, but family law is not my area; Aaron helped me understand what items were best to mediate and when we needed to go to court. He’s super patient, a good listener, and fully engaged. You can find divorce attorneys less expensive than Aaron, but his experience and litigation chops, when needed, make him a great value. I love Aaron and recommend him frequently.

If there was ever such a thing as having confidence in Divorce....
After meeting Aaron at a business networking event many years ago, we connected on ideals about how to conduct business and what client care really means. Over the years, we also became friends. So, when it was time to file for divorce, I knew I wanted him to represent me. Even though my uncontested divorce might be considered ‘easy,’ I wasn't sure how my husband, at the time, would handle it. I had to be sure I had the best on my team in case things went sideways. Aaron is so trustworthy and knowledgeable. He and his team took care of everything very efficiently. They had my back every step of the way.

Highly Recommended!
When I decided to end my marriage, Aaron was highly recommended to me by several attorneys in the Atlanta area for his professionalism and expertise in family law. I saw this firsthand. The stress and anxiety of going to trial or mediation was too much, so I was relieved to have Aaron there to fight for me. He created a safe space for me to tell my story without any judgment. With his calm, reassuring tone, he showed me how to put my emotions aside and get down to business. Aaron’s videos explained the divorce process step-by-step so there were no surprises. His staff was so helpful in keeping everything moving and meeting all the court deadlines. He recouped most of my retirement savings I had put into the family home and got my alimony extended. Thanks to Aaron, I got what I needed to maintain my lifestyle and rebuild. Divorce can be a very difficult journey. I am grateful to Aaron and his staff for guiding and protecting me along the way.

Trustworthy and empathetic
Aaron is a straight shooter and so empathetic. His staff is efficient while being kind and compassionate. He got me the change of custody for my son that I wanted, despite my ex-husband’s protests. For his clients, he is soft-spoken and will hold your hand but he can be a bulldog in the court and bear his teeth, so you don’t have to. I’ve already recommended him to four of my friends.

Man in GA custody case
My ex-wife requested full custody of my eight- and ten-year-old children so she could move from Georgia to Florida. Most of my friends and family warned me that my chances were slim of keeping them with me. Aaron took a positive, constructive approach. He pointed out all the good things I do for them, like coaching them and being involved in their extracurricular activities. He showed the court that they were thriving under my care. By not disparaging their mother, I was able to maintain a good relationship with her and was awarded full custody. Aaron is not your typical attorney. He’s become more of a friend, confidante, and cheerleader. He guided me throughout the process and always had my best interests at heart. James S

Aaron was very responsive and on top of a very high conflict divorce involving three children. He is an amazing lawyer that came recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. He was willing to work with me on payments and was always honest and worked on my behalf for the best results possible!

Best of the best for family law in Atlanta
After using a separate firm for the first court date, then subsequently dropping and remaining without representation through a large duration, I contacted Aaron Thomas Law prior to our final custody hearing. In our hour-long consultation I gained more understanding of the process as all of my questions were finally answered thoroughly. With confidence, Aaron would be the best choice to represent my family. After retaining the firm, Elizabeth became my primary point of contact and was very professional, realistic, and extremely knowledgeable in family law. All correspondence was thorough while including Aaron. Responses were prompt, scrupulous, and efficient. Both Elizabeth and Aaron quickly learned the “personalities” involved in our case and we devised a game plan for a mutually-agreeable and expedient result. In the midst of a pandemic with broad uncertainty, Aaron Thomas Law firm was understanding this is not the most ideal time for litigation and took great care in explaining all costs ahead of time as well as managing my expectations. I was referred to the firm by a dear friend and could not be more pleased with their work and dedication to my case. If you are involved in family litigation, I highly recommend Aaron Thomas Law for representation.

ATL Families Choose ATL for Their Family Law Matters!
For the last year, Aaron and his staff have worked so diligently and professionally on a visitation/child custody matter that has wreaked havoc over my life for the last 3 years. Aaron and Juli are professional, strategic, methodical, caring, logical, and empathetic. We recently received a final judgment, and I was awarded everything I asked for and then more. Aaron and his team navigated COVID-19 and managing virtual trials with ease and preparation. Aaron and Juli dedicate themselves and their work to ensuring that you and the other party do the right things for the children involved in the case. If you are interested in selecting a law firm who treats his clients with respect, who is responsive, who is professional, who takes the time to explain, who listens and engages, who is strategic and prepared, and who knows the law and will win your case because of all of the aforementioned things, then please go with Aaron Thomas. As a former single mother, who has made my way around the legal community but could never find the best representation for myself and my case, I know a lot of lawyers. Honestly, Aaron is about the best there is in Atlanta. He truly at the top of his class, which means absolutely everything when you have someone fighting for a personal issue like family law matters.

Can't say enough about how amazing Aaron is
Aaron fought a long battle for me and fought for me like I was family. I had several lawyers before him and there was no comparison; I've never had someone so responsive, empathetic, passionate, and skilled on my side. His team is excellent, professional, and extraordinarily responsive. He saved my kids and made it possible for our lives to be better. I will never be able to thank him enough and could not recommend him more highly.

A True Advocate
If you are considering divorce (or marriage, for that matter), speaking with Aaron and his Team should be your first order of business. Deciding to end a long-term marriage is painful and stressful, especially if children are involved, and finding an advocate who can be strategic, supportive and empathetic feels onerous even under amicable cirucmstances (mine were far from that). Aaron was recommended by a friend who had gone through a similarly abusive marriage and breakup and I am forever grateful to have worked with him. He has a brilliant legal mind, is transparent and honest, and fought for me and my child as if we were his own. My family is indebted to him and his Team for their professionalism, strength, heart and focus.

Look no further...you have found the one!!!
Deciding whether or not to get divorced was a tough decision. I thought that choosing a divorce attorney was going to be even tougher. I read review after review but finally went with Aaron based on a family members' recommendation and I couldn't be happier. I was pregnant with my 3rd child while going through this process, and Aaron helped me make the best decisions for myself and my children. He is very thorough and covers all bases. He was always available when I needed him whether I called or emailed. He was able to answer all of my questions and even my what-if scenarios. Aaron and his paralegal Juli made me feel like I was a part of their family. I got nothing but warmth and compassion from them both. They made this experience the best it could have possibly been. Even though my divorce is final, Aaron still checks in on me to see how my kids and I are doing. I have recommended him to 3 other close friends. If you are looking for someone that can handle business, listen to what you need, and give you sound advice, Aaron is your guy! TL: DR HIRE AARON HE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!

Today, is about the 2 year mark, of my divorce, from my ex-wife, we share an amazing 41/2 year old daughter together. My priorities were to do what was best for my daughter, which included, taking care of her mom, until she found a good job. Aaron was great! He listened to me, gave me great advice and our divorce went smoothly. The thing about divorce, when you share a child, is that it’s on going. Divorce is extremely emotional, as people, sometimes we react to things emotionally, which 9 out of 10 times, leads to more issues. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Aaron for 2 years. The great thing about Aaron is how calm & comforting he is. He genuinely wants what’s best for his client’s & their families. He tries to keep you out of court, by helping you to work things out. Don’t take that to mean, he’s afraid of court, in fact being in court is one of his strength’s, Aaron wants what’s best for me & my daughter. Not what’s best for Aaron. I’m proud to say, that through this process, I got 50/50 custody of my daughter, I was able to take care of my ex, without putting myself in a financial bind & I gained a true friend in Aaron Thomas. I’ve recommended him to several people, who have all had positive experiences, with him. If you’re reading this and need a divorce attorney, look no further. Retaining Aaron is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ll always be grateful, to him, for being calm & in control. I’m also grateful to him for his friendship.

Exceptional service and smooth steering through what could've been a messy process!
I was referred to Mr. Aaron Thomas by a friend he'd represented through her divorce, and from my very first sit down with him, it was clear why she spoke so highly of him. He was the perfect mix of attentive/supportive and competent/efficient. In just a couple of months, we were able to bring the divorce through a seamless close. Mr. Thomas and his assistant Juli were the epitome of professionalism throughout the process and kept in constant contact. Eternally grateful for their help in making what could have been an ugly and messy process as efficient and painless as one could hope for.

Amazing attorney worth every penny
Aaron was extremely accommodating and friendly through out this entire process. He did every thing he could to comfort and assist me. If it wasn't for Aaron I don't know what I would have done. He did what ever he could to decrease cost and bring the case too a close as quick as possible. I was extremely stressed until I met with Aaron, immediately he made me feel at ease. Highly recommend this attorney.

Couldn’t Ask for More
Aaron came highly recommended prior to me retaining him. He lived up to the high praise and more. Aaron took the time to understand what was important to me and what my goals were in the divorce prior to starting work on my case. Aaron and his paralegal Juli went beyond what I could have possibly asked to ensure my specific non-legal goals were met during the proceedings. Aaron was responsive and timely in communications. He constantly adjusted legal strategy based on my desires and discussions with me. When I set out a specific goal, Aaron would find creative ways to make it happen. He was compassionate during the entire process and took the time to explain the pros and cons of every option. In the end, Aaron made sure my case was settled with me getting more than I expected and more than I thought possible in the divorce. I would not just recommend Aaron, I would insist my friends and family retain Aaron if they needed services within his area of practice.

Astute Counsel
I was referred to Aaron Thomas by someone who hired him for divorce and was very pleased with the outcome of case. After my first consultation with Aaron, I was convinced he was the attorney to guide me through the challenges of divorce. He didn't disappoint. He was keen and timely with all matters, and did not let me settle for anything less than I deserved. I too am pleased with my outcome. I have already referred someone to him for divorce.

He surprised me!
Even though Aaron came recommended through a friend, I was not prepared for what a diligent, prepared, empathetic soul he is! I have had 4 different attorneys before hiring him and they were all the same in that they promised me the moon and after costing me thousands upon thousands of dollars, they all failed to deliver on a single promise. I had hired Aaron as a last ditch effort because my friend insisted that he was different and I am so thankful that I did! For the first time in almost 6 years I finally see positive progress in my case. One of my hesitations about continuing my case was my financial situation. I had spent so much money in the past on my case for such little results that I wasn’t sure I could afford to do it anymore. Aaron assured me that my case wouldn’t be as much as I had imagined so I took a chance and hired him and I am so thankful that I did! Aaron and his legal assistant, Juli, are amazing and never once did I feel like just another client. I can finally take a breath and know that my daughter and I are in good hands. I highly recommend Aaron Thomas to anyone in need of a family lawyer.
