Probably the best attorney in GA. She fights for your case and is BAD A** in a court room. This is the woman to go with. She fights like it’s her own. 10000/10!!!

The Best of the Best
I hired to April to represent me in an ongoing divorce case that had already been established but was not yet final. My ex husband and I had previously hired a low priced attorney that helped us reach an agreement regarding custody of our child and support. That arrangement quickly turned sour when I realized it was not in my, nor my child’s best interest. I walked into April’s office a complete wreck but she quickly calmed me fears and took action immediately to stop the current proceedings and ensure that I had a solid custody and support arrangement. Thank you to April and her staff for guiding me in every aspect of my situation, and for professionally advising me on how to make decisions that that may work “today” but will not work in the future. The extra money spent hiring April has paid for itself 10x over, saved me thousands in fees I would have spent in future litigation, and was worth every penny for the sake of my child’s well-being which is priceless. I highly recommend Stafford Law Group to anyone in need of a skilled attorney to guide them through the legal process and assist with legal battles that could affect them for the rest of their life! 5 stars all the way!

Stafford law group is the standard for any law practice.
When you stand alone, broken and torn all at once; April and her staff will not only listen in a humble and kind way they will take a personal interest in your case. The staff of the Stafford Law Group is one of a kind! They can best be described as beasts! Their endless hours to support and defend your case has no bounds. The best way to describe the Stafford Law Group is to say... Loyalty is the only measure of a Law Group that makes its worth priceless.  As for April she is the strength was delivered to represent you and grant justice to your case.. CW5 Retired BobbyV

Best in the boro
My attorney and her staff made my situation as bearable as anyone could, I received answers every time I called with a question, I felt as if they truely cared about helping me, and that they did, in court, April was astounding, completely prepared and precise!! Should I ever need an attorney again, April would be my first call . Needless to say, she won my case and all is back to normal in my life. Thank You April , and of course Sarabeth !!!

Great in Court!
I met Ms. Stafford in my initial consult and was very impressed. I worked closely with a designated paralegal for my case who was very informed as to everything going on with my situation. When the time for my hearing came, Ms. Stafford was beyond impressive in the courtroom. I would recommend her anytime.

God sent!
She is everything you need in any situation! I thank God for giving this angel the wisdom and knowledge to love her work and the clients she serve. I am truly satisfied with my case and her team.

I would trust Mrs. Stafford with my life (in the court room)!
Mrs. Stafford represented me in multiple custody cases. No matter how 'nasty' the custody issues became, she was always very sharp, very responsive, and extremely helpful. She's knowledgable in her practice, and professional at all times. She never fails to be 'on top' in the court room as well. A+++

Worst in the boro
Absolute worst experience with an attorney period. Very unprofessional and unhelpful staff. Once I paid, service went out the door. April herself was decent and professional enough during our interactions. However I would caution anyone from giving these money hungry scavengers your business. There are plenty better options for the money in Statesboro.

Response from April Stafford June 27, 2018
Dear Rodney, could you please clarify who you are so that I may more accurately address your concerns as I do not show representing anyone by the name of "Rodney" since approximately 2010. In any event, we work very hard and strive to meet our clients' needs, so if we are falling short on that, it is very important for me to know and address. Did you, or whomever on whose behalf you are writing, ever express dissatisfaction so that it could be addressed? Your review seems to focus more on my staff than me so please fill me in so that I can address your concerns to prevent such from happening in the future. I will be happy to have a meeting in person, via telephone or email - whatever is most convenient for you.

I hired this firm in a divorce and custody case. They collected thousands of dollars of evidence that was not brought out in court. My biggest proof was supenoed persons that I was charged for but 10 days after court I downloaded all the court documents to find the supenoed people were never entered to be served. We emailed on mental records and I explained how easy it was to get them and she emailed me saying they had it worked out but at court she changed what she had said. I feel her actions destroyed my chance of helping my child as without her using the evidence an appeal is not possible. I would not recommend this firm if you really want to help your child

From both experiences I can tell you that she extremely knowledgeable, caring, and driven. With April you have a zealous and caring advocate with elite ability in the courtroom. On numerous occasions, April has gone above and beyond the call of duty and I have no doubt will continue to do so. Without hesitation, I endorse her for any matter that you may need an attorney."
