Biography

As an athlete for 20 years, Mike recognizes the benefits of hard work, proper training and being prepared for the competition. Today, these traits help him achieve winning results for his clients. A graduate of the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University, Mike has litigated in a diverse range of law throughout Georgia and has appeared as lead trial counsel in 47 Georgia counties. Mike has served as co-counsel with some of Atlanta's largest firms, and he has also represented family members of some of the best known attorneys in the country. He is an experienced trial attorney representing parties in divorce, alimony, child custody, child support, property division, pre-nuptial agreements, grandparent’s visitation, modifications and legitimations. Mike is especially proud of the fact that lawyers and judges have asked him to represent them in their own personal matters. Mike has been appointed, and has served, as a Special Assistant District Attorney, a Special Master, and has been appointed by the Courts as a Guardian ad Litem for children and the elderly. Additionally, Mike has been rated confidentially and independently by other attorneys through the Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating process as having an exemplary reputation, a high professional standing and a well-established practice with a significant client base. He has received the highest rating through this same process regarding his ethical standards evidencing his adherence to professional standards of conduct, ethics, reliability, diligence and other attributes relevant to the discharge of his professional responsibilities. In 2005, the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission recommended Mike to Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as being "Well Qualified" to be a Superior Court Judge in the state, and in 2015 he began hosting the radio show "Ask the Lawyer" heard in four states.

Legal Answers
Q. What template should i use to file for joint custody of 2 kids between my ex and i? We're in agreement.
A: Very sorry about the ex. You will need a competent custody attorney to prepare the papers. Too much can go wrong.
Q. I had all my water lines replaced about 10 months ago. I had a leak that ruined my floor. Am I liable or is the company
A: No way to know online and without an inspection. However, it would seem that the problem was the pressure brought in by the new line was too much for the old line to handle. Professionals should know this. Yet, it appears that you knew about it and gave your consent to proceed. Bottom line? Turn it over to your insurance company. It will get to the bottom of of everything. Good luck!
Q. How do I start the process of getting custody of my children back from my mother and stepfather?
A: Your question as you have stated it is easily answered. You first retain an attorney who is experienced in this type of law; custody, DFCS, etc. Then, you work closely with the attorney and cooperate with the attorney too. What you have been told about DFCS sounds right. You are in for a difficult fight. If you get the first step wrong - hiring the attorney, you will not recover from that mistake.
