Great lawyer !
I had Barbara a few years ago and she handled everything thoroughly and professionally . Would the need arise I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again to represent me .

Class Act!! Highly Recommended!!
Mrs. Lanier handled my case with a level of professionalism with which I was very impressed. She works very hard and is always prepared for for any situation that may arise. She makes herself available most anytime and is very personable. She absoluetly represented me in a completely fair manner and always kept me informed of all developments in my case. She restored my faith in lawyers. I will use her services in the future, if needed and would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs to use a lawyer. She was worth every penny.

An absolute miracle worker!
I hired Mrs. Lanier 8/2018 for 4 traffic tickets my girlfriend and I received passing through Glenn County , GA. 2 "super speeding" violations and 2 failure to move over violations, which were misdemeanor charges. I had consultations with three other lawyers before hiring Mrs. Lanier, who all advised me i would have to pay the $2600 fines within 30 days, as well as have points on our licenses and a possible criminal record, and also informed us if we wanted additonal time to pay the fines we would have to plead guilty and go on probation. Then I hired Mrs. Lanier, who miraculously got all 4 charges pled down to minor infractions, no points on our licenses, and fines reduction from $2600 to $1000. ADDITIONALLY, she was able to get us an extra thirty days to pay! This is an extremely hard working professional and to be quite honest, if you do not hire her you would be doing yourself a huge disservice. A true miracle worker , words can not begin to describe our grattitude to Mrs. Lanier's expert legal experience, knowledge, and dedication. If you need a lawyer in Georgia Mrs. Lanier is the BEST of the BEST!!!

She really got the job done
Her personal attention and commitment to our case got our family through a rough time. She took time to listen to our concerns and was able to guide and direct us in a way that yielded great results.

Poor Representation and Professionalism
Worst professionalism I have ever come across. Including poor communication, lack of preparedness, and complete disappointment in time and money.

Owes me money and refuses to return calls
Hired her for a divorce and the entire case she constantly asked if I wanted to go with someone else (like she didn't want to take my case). My ex was not being cooperate at the beginning and we had mediation scheduled so she told me that mediation would be another $1000 which I paid in advance. We came to an agreement before the scheduled date and didn't have to go. She isn't returning the money or any calls.
