Professional, Knowledgeable on multiple areas. Very glad and fortunate I met her!!!r
After a bad lawyer experience, I was referred to Ms.Kinley by a friend. She helped finalized my divorce process and also with a criminal case. She kept me posted through every step of the process and was always available if I had any questions with a quick response. Very professional and super smart!!!!! At the end of the madness, I had the best results and couldn't feel more secure, confident and supported standing next to her. She presents herself very well and elegantly. Always listened to all my concerns with a beautiful smile. I would recommend her 100%!!! Thank you for your service and hard work. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!

Case went great, not perfect, but she was
Ms. Kinley is somebody I respected within the 1st minute of our initial conversation. She’s intelligent, honest, talented, strategic and the perfect amount of aggressiveness that I’d want in my attorney. She’ll genuinely care about you and your case, is priced very fairly, and legitimately went out of her way to do everything she could to help me get the best outcome I could’ve gotten. My case was a very, very, very tough position to be in, so when everything is said and done, I’m very pleased with how it went, and it truly could’ve gone near flawlessly, had I been willing to take 1 more large calculated risk to win my case outright. I’ll recommend her to anybody who ever asks me about what lawyer they should hire. She’s top level.

She's very effective
I hired Angela to help me get my unpaid child support. She was referred to me by a friend of mine, who is also an attorney in the Atlanta area, and he said she was the best..... I've had other attorneys for the same case and ended up paying a lot of money with very little results. However, with Angela, the prices were fair and real results were accomplished in a small amount of time. Our Judge respected her and she was calm, smart and effective in the courtroom. I would highly recommend Angela and plan on retaining her again in the future.

Not enough positive adjectives in the English Dictionary to THANK Angela!
Not enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe the work Angela did for me, but I will try. Super smart, savvy, intuitive, responsive, hardworking, no-nonsense and fabulous. She is truly the "Shark in a skirt" that I was told she was in the sense that she grabs hold of something and doesn't let go And yet. I came to Ms. Kinly after two other attorneys had failed to move along my case while exhausting my energy, needles to mention a couple of others factors...! Ms.Kinley, did this in part by being willing to risk, She was able to untangle what the other’s had done and put me in a less favorable position.... Thank you Angela!

Divorce and Custody
As I was near the beginning stages of finding out my wife cheating on me. I researched lawyers and their level of experience and education and found My Blond Attorney, Angela Kinley. My Blond Attorney took the Divorce to a whole new level of not only educating me but also getting me the equal amount of time of visitation with my kids and made sure everything my wife and I had collected over the years separated accordingly. After several battles in Court with my crazy ex and my ex falling out to move back home 3hrs away. My Blond Attorney help me retain primary custody of my 3 kids with last say and made sure the CS and visitation was setup to my liking. My Blond Attorney is a Great Lawyer and she knows what it means to be on the battle to retain custody. Her education of Law is on point.

Best Attorney!
I have hired Angela a couple of times. Once for a criminal case and another for a family law (adoption) case. In both cases she was very professional, friendly, easy to reach, and explained everything in detail. She got us favorable results in both cases! I definitely recommend her And will hire her again if needed.

The most professional, expert in trying divorce cases
Unbelievably intelligent and emphathetic as a communicator/litigator, an expert in her profession and all other superlatives that identify the best attorney. Angela is, indeed, a success in litigating for her clients. Recently, she expedited, through the courts, our daughter's divorce with positive results. Before selecting an attorney to represent you, or a family member, be sure to contact Angela. She is definitely at the top of our list.

Beauty & Brains!
What can I say? Angela is absolutely phenomenal!! I've hired her on two separate occasions and both times she has went above and beyond my expectations. If ever I am in need of a brilliant attorney again I would not think twice about hiring Angela. She never gave me false hope and always kept it real with me. She is very compassionate and determined... she is definitely "in it to win it"! If I could rate her six stars I would LOL

Truly A God Send for my situation!
I do not know where to begin about Angela. From our first conversation on the phone when I explained to her the situation I was in, she assured me that everything would be ok and would come out in my favor. She took my case with no hesitation even though I didn't have the full retainer fee. She never once treated my case like it was not important due to the fact that I had to pay my retainer in parts. My case was a special one and I needed someone that truly had my back, cared about my future, and that could fight hard on my behalf . Angela was all of that plus more. She continuously went out of her way to help me and make me comfortable throughout this stressful case. In the courtroom she is a BEAST! She comes more than prepared and is very very knowledgeable about the law and about whats going on in the courtroom. Angela doesn't back down from any situation the trial may throw at her and she handles it all professionally and with class , while still being very aggressive at the same time. She punished the prosecutor and WON my case when it seemed like everything was against me. She will do the same for you! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Angela Kinley! She will go the extra mile for you and she is VERY understanding. Truly a "GOD SEND" for my situation and myself. She saved my life and helped me put that situation to a rest, and she will do the same for you! Truly a fighter in the courtroom!

Excellent Attorney
Angela settled my case quickly and efficiently and was very professional. She has worked on several cases and is the best attorney that I have used for any business or personal matter. She communicates with you and because of this it is easy to understand exactly where you stand in your case. I will not use anyone except Angela and would highly recommend her.

6 Stars would be more accurate
I found/chose Angela Kinley through these reviews so felt it important to submit one for the benefit of anyone in need of family/criminal legal expertise. Angela has now represented me on more than one occasion, with successful outcomes every time, in fact sometimes even better than I could have expected. This is the only review that I have ever submitted truly worthy of a perfect score, actually higher if that were possible. I’ve worked with a number of local attorney’s over the years, most highly competent, and can sincerely say you can find no better legal representation.

Supportive and knowledgeable Divorce Attorney
I was divorcing my ex, an attorney, and felt uncomfortable with most people in the legal profession, until I connected with Angela on my matter. Her compassionate, listening ear along with her legal instinct on my divorce made me feel much more confident throughout the process. Going through litigation is never expected or desired, but I'm grateful Angela was my attorney through the process. Her ability to remain confident and counsel me through various related issues was paramount to my comfort along the way....litigation truly takes a toll on you so it's important to have someone that you trust to support you.

Amazing Woman!
Mrs.Kinley is an amazing person. I Retained her for my Fiancee's probation violation case where it resorted with a felony charge, it was a very difficult and unique case due to his previous and new charges, & we kept hearing that the outcome would be bad all together, and he also had one of the toughest judges. Mrs.Kinley was very honest, and patient and she made sure she understood every detail of his cases and important details of his personal life. On his court date we were sure what the outcome would be but Mrs.Kinley Came through and made sure that the judge unterstood how ood of a person he was, and everything he had been through the past few months. The judge released him that day. She is an amazing well spoken, well carried woman, who has a beautiful attitude and personality, she smiles at everyone! I am forever thankful for what she did for our family on this case. I was more than satisfied with her, & if an attorney is EVER needed again she will be the FIRST i call. I will highly recommend her services to anyone in need of an outstannding attorney.

The Best There Is
Angela was professional, and will fight for her client. She did an excellent job for us and I could never thank her enough for what she has done for me and my family. Divorce with children involved is never easy but Angela will always have her clients best interest at heart and will lead you in the right direction. I would definitely recommend Ms. Kinley to anyone who is looking for an attorney that is willing to go above and beyond for their client because that is exactly what she did for us.

Awesome job, again!
I’ve used Angela Kinley for a few cases and always receive the best service from her. She answers all of my questions with prompt responses. I never have to worry about a thing because she lets me know up front what needs to be done and she gets it done! She knows her way around the courthouse and makes the process smooth for all involved. She also put me at ease in the courtroom and calmed my nerves while asking me questions on the stand. If you want to feel safe and confident with your attorney—Angela is the way to go!

Father's right to see his daughter
After thorough review of many law-firms I hired Angela to represent me during my divorce from my wife involving child custody & support. Being an involved father to a then 3-year old I was afraid to be separated from my daughter. My fear was increased the more I looked at the average outcome of a divorce for the father = minimal visitation time. Angela took the time to review my case thoroughly. She not only took my fear of loosing my angel but consulted me on how to behave, what to look for & how to prepare myself for the final outcome of my divorce which was crucial during this difficult time. Angela's experienced negotiation with my ex-wife's attorneys led to an equal amount of time I am able to spend with my daughter! Additionally the court order achieved gives me the right to be involved in important life decisions of my daughter. I can proudly say that I am rather an exception within the single father community! Also Angela's support did not stop there. Today, several months later I still can count on Angela's quick & professional consultation if I need it. I recommend Angela Kinley to anyone who is looking for professional, experienced & involved support during a divorce.
