Learn Emily’s areas of practice.

MY CLIENTS, AND THE PRESERVATION OF THEIR FAMILIES, ARE MY PRIORITY.

          

Family is everything. That’s why choosing the right family law attorney to resolve your family disputes will be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever have to make. Having experienced a family law matter litigation myself, I truly understand how stressful and nerve-racking the court process can be and how important it is to have the right attorney by your side. You NEED an attorney you can get in contact with whenever you have questions. Even when it’s not an emergency, having a responsive, caring, and knowledgeable attorney makes all the difference during this difficult time in your life.

I practice exclusively in family law with a focus on contested and complex cases including litigation of child custody, modifications, contempt of court, and high asset divorce cases. I have a domineering presence in the courtroom and have won cases against the toughest odds. I am bold, aggressive, articulate, sharp and have the experience and skills necessary to win for my clients.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Columbia University and my J.D. from Emory School of Law. I am actively involved in the Atlanta legal community and serve on the Board of Directors for the Family Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association. I frequently lecture and speak at continuing legal education seminars and devote time as an official Guardian Ad Litem. I am a certified mediator, also providing training to professionals who want to learn Alternative Dispute Resolution, and am involved with several other great organizations such as the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association. I have been named as one of Super Lawyers Georgia’s Rising Stars – a prestigious peer-nominated designation that honors only 2.5% of selected attorneys in the State - consistently since 2015. I have been named as a “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Advocates, and have been featured in the Atlantan Magazine as one of Atlanta's Women of Power and Influence.

I understand how challenging and emotionally draining family law litigation can be, which is why I strive to make the process smooth and easy for my clients. I always provide candid and open consultations so you can truly get a sense of who I am, how I practice and how I can help you and your family. I provide guidance, strategy and expert advice to all my clients, addressing both their short-term and long-term goals while offering realistic expectations as to the process and outcome. I want my clients to feel a sense of stability and know with confidence that I am truly interested in seeing them thrive both during and after our journey together. When I take a case I don't just represent my clients - I invest in them!

Outstanding Attorney
I consulted Ms. Yu after being in a custody battle for over a year. I was a military father trying to plead my case. Ms. Yu listened closely to my concerns and addressed them all in a sophisticated manner that helped put my mind at ease. She was willing to travel over 4 hours to help fight my case. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. Ms. Yu felt like family and nothing was too big or too much of a problem. She helped me secure primary custodial rights of my two young boys. I couldn't have done it without her. I would highly recommend Ms. Yu to anyone.

Professional, Supportive and Definitely Delivers
Emily Yu is a phenomenal Attorney! After much research in determining which divorce attorney to use, I chose Yu Family Law, LLC hands down and I am extremely glad I did! Emily is very adept at her craft. She is tenacious and tough when required, compassionate when it’s warranted, honest, confident and knows when each of these essential characteristics is required and executes them flawlessly. Additionally, Emily is very detail oriented while never losing sight of the big picture. When impediments arise, she is always able to devise a mitigation strategy for execution. My situation was stressful and I was at my wits end unable to get my now ex-husband to cooperate. Emily was able to work out the legal details with the opposing counsel and get me through to completion expeditiously and with success. It is also worthy to mention they keep copious tallies of the activities and provide their clients a monthly invoice which includes a detailed breakdown of costs incurred. Don’t hesitate to hire Yu Family Law LLC for your family legal needs, they will not disappoint.

Emily's wisdom and setting realistic expectations was an asset in navigating my divorce.
Emily's wisdom and setting realistic expectations was an asset in navigating my divorce. I truly appreciate that she honored my request to approach with grace. She always laid out the options and partnered on the pros/cons, along with the risks. I appreciate her hard work as she worked to ensure my interests and needs were heard. She knew the right and best resources to engage.

military active duty who retired during seriously contested 2 year long divorce
Emily was open and honest about the amount it was going to cost and the time it would take to do a contested divorce. In the first conversation I ever had with her she told me it would probably cost $20-50K, and take maybe a year or longer. I was hoping for the lower end of each but it took 2 years and cost about $50K. There were 2 mediations, a GAL, police, CPS and many other crazy things that happened during the course of the 2 years, like COVID and all ZOOM meetings. I was active duty military and retired during the case which changed my income completely, my spouse was living in housing on the military base while I lived off base, but she had to move when I retired, both of my children have learning disabilitties and me and my spouse didn't agree on any aspects of their treatment, there were problems serving my spouse because of military base regulations, and every single decision from child custody to after school activities for the children was contested during the entire 2 years. I may be the neediest client Emily has ever had because of the constant disagreements me and my spouse had over every daily aspect of our children's lives. I went in to the divorce thinking I would be lucky to get partial, every other week end, custody of my children, that if I wanted to see them I would have to follow my spouse to a different state after my retirement and that I was going to give her all my money in child support and my retirement. I assumed she would take, or make me sell, all my assets. I ended up with 50% custody and tiebreaking authority in education and medical decisions. Because of the 50% custody she can't take my children out of Georgia. I am paying 34.5% of my retirement to my spouse for life, but that is something that is standard military stuff, I was with her on active duty for 15 years. We divided our marital assests equally and I didn't have to liquidate anything except my house in NY, which was expected going in. My case was rediculous, with details that I can't list. I sent her thousands of emails and thousands of pages of documents and asked her before every decision I made. She gave me sound advice and I paid for the advice. If you think you can have a lawyer at your call everyday for 2 years with constant contact for under $40,000 you are probably wrong. I would recommend Emily to anyone who is having a serious conflict with their spouse, just understand it's going to take money and time if you understand that going in you will be more pleased with the end result.

Response from Emily Yu May 10, 2022
Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad that our paths crossed and truly appreciate you trusting me when it mattered most. Though the journey was long and sometimes difficult, the end result was absolutely worth it. Here's to an incredible new beginning for you and your Children!

She is Amazing!!!
Emily is Amazing! She is very honest and considerate. Unlike most of the lawyers I have consulted with, she responds to me timely and always thinks a few steps ahead for me and my daughter. Emily is not the cheapest lawyer, but she DEFINITELY deserves every penny she charges! My husband has a history of DV & alcohol abuse, and Emily came up with all the terms that are still protecting my daughter and me. My husband had to accomplish an anger management class and other therapies. Emily can be tough to the opposing attorney and be really gentle, willing-to-listen for you. The process involved many difficult decisions, and she was always willing to give me enough time to think. I highly commend Emily to whomever that is struggling like I was. She is always on your side and truly the best!

Advice based on my needs/expectations
When looking for a divorce lawyer, I knew it had to be someone with compassion and the strength to fight. A neighbor who had used a lawyer for a custody dispute recommended Emily Yu. I had several appointments booked with lawyers who had been recommended by friends, but after my initial meeting with Emily, I canceled the other appointments. She showed the empathy and the determination I needed to help me navigate this heartwrenching process. What I like most about Emily, is that she really tried to get to know me and understand what I was expecting to receive from the settlement. She gave advice based on my needs/expectations and supported my decisions. It is emotionally & financially very difficult to go through a divorce after a 30 year relationship. Emily showed great compassion and was ready to fight along with me for what I was legally entitled to receive from my spouse. I am so thankful that she was there to help me navigate this process especially during a pandemic!

BEST family attorney one could ever ask for
After 5-6 months in my divorce, nothing was being done with the prior counsel. I was struggling and frustrated. A friend recommended Emily. My life was changed the day I hired Emily!! Emily got right on the case and kept things moving as soon as she took over. She is very proactive, knowledgeable, strategic, straight forward and organized. She understood me and my situation. I trust and rely on Emily 100%. She helped me keeping thing real and supported me when I was struggling with the ex, emotions and unrealistic expectations at times. Just a little over 6 months in, I can't believe It's over : ) !!! Thank you for helping me through the most difficult time of my life. I wouldn't have done it without you. THANK YOU

BEST Divorce Attorney
I guarantee you will never find a better divorce attorney than Emily Yu. My wife made an initial offer that I was ready to take, but after Emily's advice we made a counteroffer that was accepted! I received more than I ever expected due to Emily's persistence and hard work. She is fabulous, sweet and easy to talk to. Thank you again and again Emily. You made this process so easy for me and I'm so thankful I had you on my side.

"Emily is doing an outstanding job both in my opinion and that of my family of attorneys. I cannot tell you how much it helps me to have her opinion and legal counsel. Her guidance helps me to be rational and, if we have to go to Court, I have every confidence that Emily will help me obtain the best result."

You have impressed me on every level.
I highly recommend Emily and Yu Family Law. I interviewed several attorneys and as soon as I met Emily, I had no doubt that I wanted her to rep me through a very difficult time in my life. She is caring, thorough, aggressive and does not play! I’m thankful to have met her as she was highly recommended by other attorney friends of mine in Atlanta. Thank you Emily for your hard work and dedication to my case. From start to finish you have impressed me on every level.

Straight forward, up front and honest
I consulted with Emily to get a second opinion on my case. Emily was straight forward to the point, up front, and honest. She suggested I stayed with my current counsel as they are good attorneys and doing the right things. Emily gave me some great advice every divorcing parent should be thinking about. From the short conversation, I can tell Emily is passionate and very knowledge of what she does. She truly cares about her clients and the results, not just another case number. When you are going through rough times and fighting for your love ones, you need someone who is awesome and caring like Emily to guide you and fight for you.

Amazing attorney
I had an extremely rare case involving annulment. About 99.9% of the attorneys never gets to see a annulment case, not to mention ever get a chance to practice one in their entire career. Anyway, Emily got the ball rolling and it took many months but finally I got an annulment! During the process, Emily was very candid, did what she had to do and got the job done. If you have a rare case, Emily is the attorney for you. My only regret was that I didn't find her sooner.

Strategic, thoughtful and assertive divorce attorney
Emily consistently offered a tremendous amount of stability, confidence, trust and understanding from the moment of our first conversation throughout our 8 month partnership as my divorce attorney. Her ability to dissolve stressful situations and instill a sense of focus and optimism are strengths that I am so grateful for at the end of tough experience. She is strategic, thoughtful and assertive, and genuinely invests in being connected to her clients on a deeper level. Emily is a total star!

Magnificent, Exceptional; Simply the BEST!!!
As a lawyer, she's a 10 out of 10. As a genuine,honest, caring human being, she's in a league of her own. When people use the phrase " I can't say enough about__", This phrase was truly made for Emily. She's simply INCREDIBLE. Her and Erin have been there for me and my girls, every step of the way, with sound legal advice. They never asked me for a review at the beginning of my case, like some other big firms did. She truly took me and my daughters financial situation into consideration, key word in this phrase is "truly". I hate to classify Emily as an attorney, because she is so much more than that. She has truly redefined what the bar should be for attorneys, as well as just being a great human being. You can't go wrong with Emily. Give yourself peace of mind and call her; you'll see why her reviews are so remarkable.

The Best!
In the middle of a very messy custody issue I was fortunate enough to meet and hire Emily Yu. Emily took the time to listen to me and advised me on the best way to approach my case. She made me feel supported and always ensured that me and my child were comfortable with the direction of the case. In the end we were able to come to an agreement during mediation. I tell anyone dealing with a family law issue about my great experience with Emily. Finding an attorney who handles your case with the sensitivity, care and respect it deserves is difficult, that is why I recommend Emily Yu, believe me she's worth it.

Hands down Emily is the best lawyer I have ever worked with.
Hands down Emily is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. My custody case was messy and crazy, but she helped me every step of the way. When things got out of control with my ex or any questions I had I was able to reach Emily or her paralegal Erin right away. She was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. Through the phone conversations she was very patient with me and answered all my questions in detail. She displayed so much sophistication and honesty through her work. There's a misconception that lawyers want to take all your money, and although it can get pricey, Emily and team is the complete opposite. We were able to settle without going to court. Emily and her team understood the sensitivity of the case and showed compassion through it all. She made sure I wasn't being taken advantage of. She took a lot of stress off our shoulders. We truly appreciate all her help. There is not enough words of gratitude for your professionalism provided. I strongly recommend Emily to anyone who is looking for a brilliant family lawyer.

Ms Yu and staff was very professional and very quick with responding to all of my inquiries. I consulted her law firm for a postnuptial agreement and her and her staff was very knowledgeable about the laws which helped to protect me. The paralegal that handeled the specifics of my case also helped me to understand and see some things that I had not thought of before. I recommend Emily Yu's law firm if you are looking to do a postnup or prenup. I also recommend anyone that is getting married or is married to do always do a prenup/postnup. Divorce rate is high and keeps getting higher you don't want to be left without protection.
