Frances Williams Dyal

About me

Born and raised in Glynn County, Frances Dyal has been practicing law since 2006. Prior to earning her law degree from the Florida Coastal School of Law, Frances worked as a licensed clinical social worker. She is the only attorney in Brunswick with dual degrees in therapy and law, which allows her to serve clients in a holistic way. She considers not only the legal issues, but also the emotional concerns of everyone involved. She is extremely hands-on, and she uses her knowledge and experience from her background in social work to advocate for her clients. Whether it’s a call, text, or visit, Frances believes there is no question too small and no problem too big. Frances is readily available for any concern a client may have.

At the law office of Frances Dyal, we believe in a compassionate and understanding approach to the law. Located in Brunswick, Georgia, our office specializes in family, juvenile and probate law. As the firm’s sole attorney, Frances provides each of her clients with thorough legal skills and a kind, supportive, and empathic manner. As a former social worker, she believes in a holistic approach, focusing on relationships, trust, and compassion. Frances is a hands-on attorney, carefully guiding clients through difficult decisions, respecting the family’s needs, but always considering children first and foremost. Her goal is to make transitions for families as smooth as possible, ensuring a healthy and amicable future.
