Peter Alex Rivner

About me

In my practice, I strive for excellence in  providing great service to my client and obtaining the best outcome for my client. This excellence has been recognized by my clients whose 5-star reviews have earned me the AVVO Client's Choice award and by my colleagues who have consistently selected me as a Georgia Trend Magazine Legal Elite, an Atlanta Magazine Superlawyers Rising Star, and a National Academy of Family Law Attorneys Top 10 Under 40. 


 


My practice focuses on middle to high income divorce, custody, support, legitimation, paternity and other family law proceedings, with an emphasis on helping my clients through the most difficult transitions in their lives in a cost-effective and beneficial manner that obtains the best result for them and their families.


 


Originally from Augusta, Georgia, I graduated from the University of Georgia magna cum laude in 2006 and from Georgia State University College of Law cum laude in 2009. 


 


I am very involved in my community, actively serving on several boards of philanthropic, religious and social action organizations.   


 


In my freetime, I enjoy playing basketball and spending time with my wife and son.
