Welcome to my page.  I worked my way through Georgia College & State University, graduating with honors in 1982.  I graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1985, and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia on June 5, 1985.  I have successfully represented thousands of clients, from all walks of life, in courts and administrative tribunals from north Georgia to the Florida state line.  I am admitted as a general mediator and as an arbitrator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution.  Let me put my experience to work for you.

Awesome attorney
He is precise and explains things in a simple way for a layman to understand. If he is in Atlanta, I would have hired him. Unfortunately, he is 100 miles away from Atlanta. Thank you Mr. Waymon

He knows his laws.
Mr Harrell was nice enough to point me in the right direction to resolve my situation. If I lived in Georgia, I would have hired him to handle my case. Thank you again Mr. Harrell.

Pro se bankruptcy questions.
As much as anyone could, Mr. Harrell provided sound legal opinions based on his experience for the questions I asked while I was handling a pro se phase of my legal matter.

Gives details
This attorney does give details and not just broad general answers. I appreciated his input.

Very rude
He called and I tried explaining my situation but instead of listening he was very rude cut me off and just wasn't helpful at all I don't know if I caught him on a bad day or what but I would never recommend him or even use him.
Response from Waymon Harrell April 20, 2018
Sometimes people do not like the answer I give them over a telephone. They then go online, and shoot the messenger.
