Professional attorney who navigates ambiguity of divorce
Wish I had used Anita when I first filed for divorce. She has now corrected the areas that were left open by a previous attorney that caused issues not setting clear, outlined specifics that put me back in court. She is like a surgeon knowing what needs to get cut and what needs to be modified all in good health. Smart, kind, is clear about expectations and looking at long term priorities for the parent and the child. Anita helped me to forecast what we needed at the moment then 5yrs, 10yrs down the road. Anita was my saving grace!! Thank you ANITA!!!

Look no further
Anita represented me in my divorce case and I am so grateful I had her on my side. While divorces are intimidating and never easy she made me feel like she genuinely cared about my situation AND had my best interests at heart. She doesn’t sugar coat anything which is exactly what I wanted and clearly needed. Her knowledge of family law is impeccable and she is extremely thorough in representing her cases. We remain in contact so much so that she even helped in my decision making process of purchasing a car and even contacted a car dealer on my behalf making sure they offered me the best deal ! “Above and beyond” is the words that come to mind when I think of Anita.

Dad's are NOT ignored!
Anita helped my husband and I several years ago in a custody case. My husband's ex-wife was trying to move their boys from GA to Canada. In order to prevent her from moving (at least until they could decide on amicable co-parenting terms etc.), Anita filed for an emergency stay. We spent the next 10 months in a heated and very contentious battle, and Anita was with us every step of the way. She does NOT back down. She knows the law. She is logical and realistic. She won't "sell you" or tell you only what you want to hear. With Anita Lynn you know that she is telling you the truth and you can trust her when she gives you counsel. I sincerely hope that no one else has to go through this but I know it's life, and some of you will. If you want the very best outcome then Anita is who you should trust. In the end, a guardian ad litem recommended that not only should the boys not be allowed to move with their mother to Canada but that we get full custody. We settled on 50/50 so that the boys would be able to have both parents in their lives. It certainly has not been easy since that court case 9 years ago, but I sincerely believe that we would not have the life we have today with our family had we used anyone other than Anita to represent us.

Review of Anita Lynn
I hired Anita Lynn on several occasions, and I highly recommend her for the following reasons: 1) She always solved the issues I hired her for quickly. I loved her sense of urgency to resolve my issues and her attentiveness to my case! 2) She was very responsive, kind and courteous to me. She treated me like a friend would! :) 3) Very professional, knowledgeable and experienced. She has over 30 years in the business and her experience clearly shows! My plan is to use Anita again; I already refer her to my friends, professional colleagues, and family!

Was the strength I needed!
I have to say making the decision to file for a divorce and going thru the process isn’t easy. Mrs Lynn made is so easy for me and was compassionate and supportive the entire way! She was the strength I needed when I wasn’t able to give it. I can honestly say if I would have used anyone else my ex would of gotten what he wanted. I could never thank her enough for what she has done for me.

Simply The Best
Anita Lynn came HIGHLY recommended as representation for my divorce in Atlanta, GA. To say that my divorce was extremely overwhelming and emotional would be an understatement. Anita's representation was superb. Anita took it upon herself to advocate for myself as well as my children with compassion and confidence, while taking the stress out of the process. My children and I are forever indebted to her for her caring attitude and professionalism. She is well known in the court system and was a lion in the courtroom. Her fees were reasonable and more than commensurate with the work done. I recommend Anita without reservation for her legal expertise, courtroom tactics and her knowledge of human nature. Anita is the best of the best!

I have found Ms. Lynn to be an exceptionally accomplished attorney in her field and equally assertive in the specialty work of divorce law in Georgia. Her bill rate is worth every cent. Her research and preparation is paramount.
