Thank you for checking out my Avvo profile.

 

Choosing an attorney is tough.  After all, how do you know whether an attorney is any good?  Where do you find an attorney that is affordable and can also deliver the results that you want?

 

As a solo practitioner, I have built my practice over 18 years by delivering great solid results at a price that is affordable for the working class of north Georgia.  Until 2015, I didn't even maintain a website because all my business have been by word of mouth referrals.  The overwhelming majority of clients who have used my services like me and like the results that I have delivered for them.  They refer their friends and family to me. Over 18 years, thousands have counted on me during the most crucial and often difficult times in their lives: in divorces, during bankruptcies, when they buy/sell a house, when a loved one has died, when they are adopting a child, when a child has been removed by social services, when they are the victim of family violence.  I've been there.  I've met their legal needs. I've taken care of them. 

 

I'd like to do the same for you.

Most honest and inteligente lawyer!
Alfred help me with my divorce and two times to claim past child support payments. He is a very honest and reliable lawyer. Always answering your questions or doubts, either by e-mail, text messages and/or phone. He's not that kind of lawyer who play dirty or make up stuff to win. So you can be sure he would do everything he can, without breaking the law, to win your cases, to do the proper paperwork. I can never repay all you did for me and my family. Jehovah bless you and your family!

Child Custody
I was in the market for an Attorney for a child custody case, Mr. Chang was the first attorney I spoke with and the only Attorney I spoke with! I hired him that week and within 6 weeks, I was granted full custody of my daughter. He is absolutely the best Attorney that I have ever used, and will continue to use him if the need arises. Thank you so much Alfred Chang for everything you did for my daughter and I

Best in Divorce/Family Law
I hired Alfred Chang for my divorce and child support issues. He was very reasonable, and I will continue to use him for any future concerns I have with my ex. He provided hope when we felt our chances of success were impossible. He was very professional, empathetic, and offered a way out of a very dark time in our lives. My children and I are so thankful and grateful for his help and I will continue to recommend Alfred Chang to anyone needing a fantastic Family Lawyer.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
The second I spoke with Alfred, I knew he was the one I wanted to represent me. After speaking with numerous attorney’s, I felt that I found someone who was honest and straightforward...with a sense of humor too! Our divorce was not a contentious one but was difficult and confusing just the same. Alfred helped to navigate me through each step and I would absolutely recommend using him for any of your family law needs.

The Best in Family Law
I hired Alfred for my family law case. Prior to hiring Alfred I had interviewed many lawyers but none of them understood the complexities of the case and the initial client/chemistry was not there.   I talked to Alfred one time and I knew he was my lawyer for the long haul.  He was fast, efficient, and he does not take a cookie cutter approach to family law cases.   He gets results in addition to offering solid advice throughout the entire process and for the foreseeable future.  In addition, he has been through a high conflict divorce himself so he offers good knowledge on how to best mitigate these difficult waters.  He took charge and provided a clear path to success in addition to being an ace in the courtroom.   I should have hired Alfred during my initial legitimization process years ago.  However, from this point onward Alfred is my go to guy for any future family law specific items.

I was his client
I met Alfred many years ago. He helped me on May occasions. I was recently his client when he wrote up mine and my husbands will and guardianship for our special needs daughter. Highly recommend him for whatever your needs maybe.

Honest, Dependable, educated and funny
I met with Alfred in August of 2012, a then new mother to a baby girl. Fast forward almost seven years since retaining Alfred and i have used him more than i can count. He is reliable, educated and helped me achieve everything in my daughters best interest. Thinking back seven years ago I’m so grateful i made the decision to use him.

Excellent Attorney
Alfred Chang is an outstanding attorney. I have used him for divorce and Bankruptcy. He is extremely knowledgeable and has an excellent courtroom presence. Any divorce is difficult, but mine contained several emergency hearings and a temporary protective order as well. Alfred was not only extremely professional, but put me at ease as well. He was very good with my kids and they were comfortable talking to him. I could always trust that he would tell me the truth and had my best interest at heart. I am very satisfied with my settlement. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.

The best lawyer ever I had
First I would like to sincerely thank Mr Alfred chang and his staff for all the help in myatter . Hiring Mr Alfred chang as my divorce attorney was the best decision I made . Mr Chang has always kept me up to date with all the letters , responses , organized and filed lots of pages of my documents, set important calendar dates and reminders well in advance . All his communications and follow ups were precise , on time and very efficient . Mr Chang treated me not only like his client , treated me like his friend . I also want to personally thank Mr Chang for all his hard work and time spent clarifying my questions and concerns . During my time of extreme stress Mr Chang took the needed extra time to carefully hear the words coming out of me and carefully explained what he could do for me . Mr Chang calmness , caring and understanding were exactly what I needed to counter my spouse antics and overblown demeanor . From the bottom of my heart I want to thank him again so much for all the help in the most difficult time in my life . If Mr Chang was not my attorney I would probably be in a situation which wouldn't have been good . He listened, understood and gave me the guidance and helped me through it . I would ask if any one need help through divorce then please contact Mr Alfred chang without any hesitation. I was blessed to have an attorney like Mr Chang , he fought and gave me the results he promised me when we spoke first time . Amazing lawyer .

HE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!!
Alfred Chang has been a blessing to me and my children during one of the most stressful times in our lives. My divorce case was complex and involved a member of the armed forces, Alfred stayed calm, diligent, and determined from start to finish. His courtroom presence is impeccable. He was always focused with an unmatched attention to detail. His ability to listen and dissect a case seems to come so naturally to him. Durning my case he made me feel at ease and less stressed, my kids really enjoyed speaking with him also. In the end Alfred was relentless and got me everything I asked for at my final hearing. I can say hands down I would hire him again and I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Excellent atorney
Alfred is a very knowledgeable and capable attorney. In a society where the father rarely gets custody of his kids in a divorce case, Alfred made it happen for me. Alfred communicated well with me and kept me informed as the case progressed. His advice was always spot on. One thing I really appreciated about him is that he would be in contact with me only if he needed to be, as this (according to him) would keep him from having to bill me for time that wasn't really necessary. This told me that he was looking out for me. Alfred has a very good court room presence and knows what he is doing there. For the quality of service he provides, his rates are outstanding! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends. In fact, I think I will.

Best divorce attorney
This was, by far, the best possible experience considering the circumstances. No divorce is pleasant or exciting but he always seemed to keep me positive in the experience. For what I needed the price was beyond fair. He also kept in contact so I was never unsure as to what to expect or do. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome or his willingness and ability to take care of his client. Thank you so much.

Absolute Best Lawyer in the Atlanta and surrounding areas definitely a must hire!
Alfred Chang is the absolute best attorney we have ever hired! He is extremely professional and handled our case with expertise, efficiently and quickly. The divorce could have easily been a nasty, long custody case ongoing for years, but He handled both a TPO and divorce in less than one year. Not only was he efficient, he was very accommodating. He listened carefully and was available anytime of the day. Great personality and very affordable. He will be the first attorney we will call for any future needs.

Wonderful Lawyer
Alfred helped me with my divorce. He is courteous, helpful, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He understood any concerns I had and made sure they were addressed. I have a very busy schedule, he was understanding and accommodating of that and responded quickly to all my questions. He kept me updated and never left me guessing where I was in the process. He definitely fights for his clients, I was beyond impressed with the work he did for my case. He made the process as simple for me as possible, I highly recommend him.

The BEST
Alfred helped me with my divorce involving my minor child. He made sure he did everything on his part to make the whole process much easier on me. He is very prompt in returning emails and phone calls. I was beyond impressed with the service I received and as long as he is in buisness he will have mine.

Custody case
Alfred came highly recommended by many people in the community. I am very thankful I chose to follow this recommendations. He handled the custody case for my son. He was always easy to get ahold of if I had any questions or concerns and very timely in his response. He handled everything in the case amazingly and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Over my 16 plus years of practice, Alfred Chang and I have litigated many cases together. Family law matters are often highly emotional, and challenging not only for the client, but for the family law practitioner. Alfred has consistently been a pleasure to work with, always quick to respond to emails, and phone calls. Alfred has tremendous litigation skills. He is always prepared and focused, and Alfred has the ability to dissect a case much like a skilled surgeon, with absolute calm. Nothing seems to rattle this guy or distract him from his goal on a case, which of course, makes him a worthy opponent. More important, he is also one of the most ethical lawyers I’ve ever known. You give family lawyers a great name Alfred."
