Child custody dispute
Attorney Hughes is awesome! I initially hired and attorney from a big name Law Firm to represent me in a child custody case. The attorney sold me a dream, got paid then basically told me the best she could do for me is get me standard visitation with a very high monthly child support payment. I replaced that attorney and hired Attorney Hughes, now I have custody and the mother has standard visitation. Your case is only as strong as your representation . If you're looking for a attorney that will fight for you, Attorney Hughes is your lady. The little lady with big standing.

The Best Attorney
Attorney Hughes is wonderful, great! A perfect example of our great judicial system. While handling my case, she went above and beyond to adhere to and make sure that the appropriate justice was served. She made me feel very comfortable and took the time out to listen to each and every detail to assure that my rights were protected. I've already taken the liberty to refer her to my friends and associates for legal consultation and representation.

Great Lawyer, Professional, Knowledgable, Competent.
I hired Ms. Hughes to handle my divorce. Initially, I brought a divorce forms package but Ms. Hughes reviewed the documents and made it specific to GA law and my situation. She was extremely detailed, patient and understanding. She also explained what each document meant. Because she did such a good job, I also hired her to prepare a contract for my business. She drafted the contract in just a few hours with minimal information and answered all my questions. I will recommend her to everyone I know.

Excellent results
Attorney Ella Hughes has handled several legal matters for me, from landlord-tenant, to auto accident to speaking with admission officials at my son's college to get him enrolled in what seemed like an impossible enrollment and she was also able to locate his financial aide that had been misappropriated, to getting a new replacement HVAC unit that was damaged by a licensed contractor. Each time I have received excellent results. I will not hesitate to use her again and again and will recommend her to all my friends, associates and passerbys.

a wonderful firecracker of an attorney! Completely recommend!!!
I worked with Mrs. Hughes in regards to collecting unpaid child support from my ex husband as well as modifications to my divorce decree. Ella was aggressive in getting me what I deserved and helped me a great deal throughout the entire process. I was able to contact her via email and phone when I had questions/concerns and was replied to within a reasonable time frame considering. I will be using her again in the near future and always feel confident she does her due-diligence when it comes to my cases. She is a firecracker in the courtroom and I look forward to working with her again!
