Absolutely Incredible!
I am beyond grateful we found Savannah. We didn’t start the process with her and had a horrible experience with a different firm. A friend recommended Savannah, and the process to switch attorneys was seamless. She guided our family through a difficult process with poise and professionalism. She was extremely helpful, patient and knowledgeable. I never once felt like a file number, you can tell she truly cares about her clients! I highly recommend Savannah and her firm!!!!

kind, honest, and loyal
After struggling for nearly two years to find a competent attorney to handle my divorce case, I was fortunate enough to find Mrs. Steele, who could effectively navigate the obstacles presented by the opposing party and their Counsel. Her expertise and guidance proved invaluable in resolving my litigation needs and providing me with the necessary support during a difficult time. I went through several attorneys during my divorce case because some were more interested in obtaining a larger share of my assets and proceeds than providing me with fair representation. During my search for an attorney, I consulted with at least 35 lawyers, but most of them were more concerned with discussing their upfront fees than understanding the complexities of my case. Finding an attorney willing to guide me through my lengthy divorce case and prioritize my needs was difficult. Despite a family emergency, Mrs. Steele was punctual for the scheduled consultation and strongly committed to helping me. As I explained my situation and challenges as a Pro-Se, Mrs. Steele listened attentively. Although the allocated time exceeded its original duration by double, she didn't display any worry or request for extra fees. This instilled confidence in me that she was committed to fully understanding the case before charging any upfront fees. Mrs. Steele's willingness to work out a payment plan with me indicated that I was dealing with a different kind of lawyer. My financial situation had taken a hit due to the long legal process, and her flexibility in accommodating my request was greatly appreciated. Mrs. Steele was able to catch up quickly despite being retained only a week before the final hearing. She diligently read all the pleadings and asked me tough questions as she dotted the i's and crossed the t's. Mrs. Steele fiercely advocated for my rights during the hearing and efficiently presented my case to the Court. I can attest to her outstanding integrity, as she remained kind, honest, and loyal throughout the process.

Father's are parents too
Savannah, is the best attorney for fathers fighting for the custody of their children. She has gone above and beyond for years and years of a strenuous legal battle for me. And in the end I get to see my kids again on a regular basis. I could have never done it without her. If you are a father and you are fighting to still be in your kids lives. Reach out to Savannah.

Third Time's A Charm
Savannah accomplished more in 6 weeks, including holidays, than my previous attorneys did in 15 months. She was a good steward of my retainer. Her actions were always engineered toward the desired outcomes I needed to achieve for my family. Please don't make the mistake I did. Geaux get Savannah for the first time!

Great Outcome for Modification
Savannah was a key partner in the success of my modification. She is organized and was always there keeping me up to date. When it came to trial she is very composed in court and has a gift with words. She was able to clearly articulate the key drivers of my case to give me a great outcome.

Fantastic Attorney
Savannah was great at handling my divorce which ran the course of 4 years and was contentious. I never felt she was wasting my money on busy work (which seems to be common in family law attorney who don't value ethics) and she encourages settlement and fair outcomes over trying to get everything you can. If you want to move on with your life, hire her now. I think if you're looking just to hurt everyone around you, pick another lawyer. I am so happy there is someone ethical and responsive in Atlanta that I could work with. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed with her.

Savannah is the Best!
Savannah has been with me through a custody modification case. Very knowledgeable, professional, and honest. I cannot say enough good things about her (and her team). Her advice and thorough explanation always helped me understand my case's progress and gave me peace of mind during the most difficult time of my life. Most of all, Savannah fights for you! Thank you, Savannah!

Savannah was referred to me because I was in a post divorce nightmare. I am so glad she represented me! She is smart, fair, patient and tough. She helped me with my very challenging legal needs and helped me get as close to the result that I wanted. She knows what she is doing.

Outstanding
I've been in litigation with my ex since 2005 and have had several attorneys throughout the years. Savannah is head and shoulders above every other attorney I've worked with. She's knowledgeable, detailed and caring. As long as I'm in need of an attorney, I'll be with Savannah.

Gratitude and Grace
Gratitude and Grace! I honestly don’t know where to begin...it’s been 3 years to the month since I met Savannah and Alison in a time of my life filled with uncertainty, fear and confusion. To say they advised me or even walked me through the following 6 mo of my divorce case would be such an understatement...Savanah carried me not only through the legal process but the emotional shock as well. I have struggled in writing this review for so long because no review could possibly express my gratitude to Savannah, Alison and Ellis-Funk! I know my case was messy but they fought for me when I was too discouraged to care anymore. They were compassionately direct as they advised me but they never for one second allowed the nature of “business” blind them from the deeper truth that my heart was hurting. Savanah and Alison were my forerunning grace...They went before me in places were the odds were absolutely stacked against me and I was losing my faith in not only the justice system but in humanity. In October of 2017, I walked out of court with so much more than I ever asked for, yes the material assets were more than restored...but Savannah fought for my self-respect and character that day and took a stand against the power of manipulation on our judicial system! What a privilege it was to have Ellis Funk as my advocate! Thank you Savanah and Alison from the bottom of my heart!

Impeccable Attorney
Savannah and I had a phone consultation and I’ve gotta say that she is very impeccable. She called exactly at the time she said she would, I gave her a run down on my case, she listened and understood, and gave me sound legal advice which was very reassuring and calming for me. Her demeanor and knowledge of my situation without even saying much, reminds me of a previous attorney I hired that got me outstanding results and that’s a plus. I needed the type of confidence she gave me for my case. If I ever need an attorney for family matters, I will be sure to hire her!

Ms Steele is a Gamechanger!
Savannah Steele is an amazing, knowledgeable attorney. From our first meeting when she reviewed our Separate Maintenance Agreement and established a game plan as well as needed retainer, she was a true professional. She reviews and prepares documents thoroughly but quickly thus minimizes fees charged. She was able to successfully subpoena my ex’s records and win a Contempt motion for me. Savannah is great at keeping you up to date and helps manage expectations. She seems to know the Judges of Superior Court and has an excellent reputation. I would give her 10 stars if I could. I strongly recommend Ms Steele for your family law needs. Lynne

Grateful
My divorce is still pending and I changed lawyers three times because I was not happy with the prior representations. Savannah represented me at a hearing and she fought for me fiercely until the end. I was shaking because it was my first time ever in front of a judge but she was very reassuring, she made sure I understood everything since English is not my primary language. I felt supported and cared the whole time. She’s really nice as a person but she turns into a lion in court. I liked her since the consultation and this time I was not wrong. Muchas gracias!

She is very knowledgeable
Ms. Steele is a very sharp and knowledgeable attorney. Regarding my complicated case, she has given precise advice that would set me up for success. She was not looking to take my money and instead had my best interest at hand. I wouldn't trust anyone else with the fate of my kids in Georgia because she knows what she's doing.

Would highly recommend
I hired Savannah Steele to help out with a pretty scary child custody battle that involved some very serious false allegations. Not only was Savannah able to defend me from unjust accusations, but her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional support, and she took the time to explain each phase of our battle with painstaking detail.

Precise, nice, efficient and intergrity
I had a consultation over a case they try to place over me and she was amazing, she told me exactly what to do and she offered a fair price, lucky for me the case didn’t go to far but she was honest didn’t waste time or money, very rare to find an attorney with such caliber.
