Biography

I am so blessed to have the privilege to advocate for families in Georgia. In my practice of restructuring families, I have had the opportunity to represent both husbands and wives and mothers and fathers in their divorces, legitimations, child custody matters, child support modifications and paternity actions. These representations include the prosecution and defense of these matters. While every case is different, many of the cases are ripe for resolution short of litigation. However, some of them must be litigated to the fullest extent in a courtroom. When you decide to hire hlg you are investing in attorneys who recognize that this is already a difficult time in your life and you need intelligent legal counsel with true compassion. I offer this delicate balance of strong and tenacious representation with comfort and respect for the very delicate subject matter. I work hard to ensure that the legal process understood so you can be prepared.

I bring a diverse perspective to assist our clients in their personal injury matters. We assist clients in various personal injury matters including car accidents, slip and falls, malicious prosecution, negligent security and other matters. We work efficiently to ensure the clients have as much knowledge about the process – including “behind the scene” knowledge. We go above and beyond the requirement and deliver professional and personal attention. An example of this stellar service is that we always attempt to reduce medical bills to ensure as much money as possible goes directly to the client even though it does not increase the amount of money we receive. While we strive to resolve claims as soon as practical, we refuse to settle an unfair claim, thus, many of our matters have to move forward in litigation. To conclude our family representation, we also offer estate-planning service, including simple wills.
