A beast in the court room
Greg Daniels is hands down the best attorney money can buy. From our first consultation I knew immediately this is the attorney I needed on my side! My divorce was lengthy and complicated but after 21 years of marriage and my Ex having an affair I figured it would be. Greg was right there to guide me through every bit of it! He did beyond anything I could have even imagined. He was a beast to watch in the court room. He was ready for every lie my ex husband and his affair partner tried to come at him with and he had evidence after evidence to back it up. It’s finally over and I am so happy I chose Greg Daniels to handle my divorce. Thank you Greg you and your team are amazing!

There is no other firm or person I would trust more with my family
My wife & I are former divorcées & we now have a beautiful blended family. Mr. Daniels & his wonderful team (Jenny & Erin especially) represented my family not once but twice. The first time was with my wife’s ex-husband. By the end of it Greg helped not only my family but my wife’s ex as well (through ownership for his actions & seeking help for his substance abuse). Greg would then go on to help with the adoption of my now oldest son. A couple years later my ex-wife, after nearly ten years of living out of state and minimal contact, sued for custody my two children from our marriage. For the next year Greg & his team not only represented my family with the highest level of professionalism but compassion too. This man has my upmost respect as a professional & as a father. His tireless work ethic & investment in my family means the world to me. I would only recommend Greg Daniels for any family legal needs. Thank you again Greg, Jenny, & Erin for everything you’ve done through the years for my family.

When I desperately needed help making sense of an awful situation, Greg was there. He was compassionate, clear-minded, and exceptionally skilled at calmly and deftly cutting through the noise that my ex's attorney was working hard to create. His legal advice was always well-reasoned and well-argued and made me certain that I had a true advocate and mentor through the entire process. I am deeply appreciative for all he did.

Great attorney!
Greg and Jenny did an amazing job with a long, drawn out custody case. They were supportive and more importantly, we won. Greg is a complete professional and very impressive in the court room. He’s a total boss.

The BEST in Athens
I had a very serious situation that led me to Greg... my three children! From the time I walked into his office, until we walked out of the court room, I never once doubted his work. Greg and his paralegal, Jenny, stuck by my side and never left me in the dark about anything going on with my case. No matter how busy they were, everyone always made me feel like my case was their one and only, and I had his full attention and expertise. I could never thank Greg and his team enough for everything that was done for our family!

Highly Recommend
No one ever wants an attorney but more often than not, we all end up needing one. I’m not the most decisive person but choosing Mr. Daniels to represent me was an easy decision. Mr. Daniels is thorough and tough, he is who you want in YOUR corner, not your opponent’s. He doesn’t sugar coat things, he tells it like it is. He will dig deep to find necessary information to assist with your case and do all he can to make sure his clients are satisfied with the outcome. He and his staff are professional and courteous and I highly recommend them to anyone I hear of needing legal representation.

Greg is an excellent lawyer. When my ex wife filed for divorce I interviewed with a couple lawyers to try to figure out who would be the best lawyer to represent me with this very important case. After hiring a divorce lawyer my ex decided that she wanted full custody of our child who we were raising together. This was very difficult and scary because I love my daughter very much and I know how valuable it is for children to have both of their parents in their lives. After a few minutes speaking with Greg in the initial conversation I had more knowledge of the divorce process and specifically what I need to do, and what he would do for me than in all the other consultations combined. I hired him with full confidence that he was the best divorce lawyer for me. I now have joint custody of my daughter and have her living with me fifty percent of the time. If I am asked about a good divorce lawyer in Athens Georgia I recommend Greg Alexander Daniels immediately.

Search no more. Greg is the best.
In June my wife of 10 years informed me she wanted a divorce. During this traumatic time I interviewed with Greg and another lawyer that will remain nameless. I met with Greg and the first thing that stuck out to me was how easy he was to talk to but just as important was how professional/knowledgeable he was. Following advice, I met with the other lawyer. In my scared and clueless state I retained the other lawyer because he charged less. Needless to say my experience with the other lawyer was just short of awful. I was forced to cut ties with this other lawyer and went back to Greg. I explained my frustration with the other lawyer to Greg and he explained to me how he works. Greg explained that if retained, he wanted to know more about my case than anyone. He assured me that he as well as his paralegal Jenny would be available to communicate during my trying time as this was a major problem with the other lawyer. The difference between the two lawyers was absolutely night and day. Greg actually cared about taking care of me and my 3 kids. Communication was top notch and I knew that he was looking out for my best interests the entire time. Greg fought on my behalf as my wife and her lawyer began to try and get everything they could. Greg walked me through the process step by step and we were able to reach an agreement with the other side that was more than fair. I have to tell you that Greg exceeded my expectations and that I am truly blessed to have him as my lawyer. I understand how sideways your life can go during a divorce and how unprepared you are when it happens. I remember looking through AVVO ratings to find a lawyer I knew nothing about knowing that they would be responsible for so many factors of my life going forward. Who could I trust my life to? Look no further and take my word....... Greg is that person. I am blessed to have had him represent me.

Fantastic Attorney
Mr. Daniels did a fantastic job of representing me for both my divorce, and my custody case. His level of professionalism, knowledge, and attention to every aspect of my case was refreshing. I enjoyed working with him, and would retain his services again if the need were to arise. I strongly recommended Mr. Daniels for anyone who wants great legal representation, and an attorney/client experience that they will be happy with!

I first contacted Mr. Daniels in April 2010 to discuss my options regarding divorce. He was very professional and informative. I retained him shortly thereafter. When my husband and I decided to reconcile and not divorce, Mr. Daniels was supportive and offered me future assistance if needed. I was back in his office in 2012. Mr. Daniels was again very honest, professional and forthcoming with details of the divorce process. Divorce is expensive and an emotional minefield. Mr. Daniels helped me stay focused throughout. He and his paralegal were always accessible when I needed to discuss something. If you are looking for an attorney that is knowledgeable, professional, honest and will always give you the facts, good or bad, then I would recommend hiring Mr. Daniels. He is a zealous advocate for his client. He made sure I walked away with the best outcome possible.

Restoration of alimony
Mr. Daniels represented myself and my interests with inegrety. He fought hard to see that justice was served. On our day in court he was prepared and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Completely Satisfied
Mr. Daniels did an awesome job with my divorce. I feel like I was treated fairly by the court, and while obviously when a judge has the final say so, I didn't get everything on my "wish list" I feel like Mr. Daniels fought for what was most important to me.

Professional and Dedicated
Greg has been an excellent lawyer. He handled my ex wife's aggressive lawyer with great poise and stuck with me through a lengthy and difficult divorce. He uncovered hidden income my spouse left unreported to the courts which ultimately garnered a more favorable settlement. He does his best to come to an agreeable solution but will pull no punches if litigation is unavoidable. He gets 4 stars instead of 5 only because he can be difficult to reach at times, but I am satisfied with his performance.

Gives lawyers a bad name
I would not recommend hiring this attorney. If you do hire him, make sure you get all of the information up front, including a contract explaining his fees. I wish I knew this information before hiring this attorney-it would have saved me many headaches fighting to get unearned fees back. Dishonest, unprofessional-hopefully other consumers will not have to go through what I have been through with this lawyer.

Response from Gregory Daniels July 30, 2013
I would be glad to explain this review. Each and every one of our clients are walked through the retainer process and our billing practices are clearly defined. In this particular instance my hands were tied as to the resolution of any fee issues, as there were charge-backs and work had already been performed.
