Biography

*** Currently only accepting Gwinnett and Fulton County divorce cases
*** Simple estate planning cases statewide.

We are happy to help you. My firm is noted for our aggressive representation, meticulous preparation and I charge fair, flat fees. Potential clients can be assured that I have the necessary experience and dedication to your case and will give each and every client the personal attention that their case requires. I have been practicing for over 20 years, so I am considered an expert in my field and well regarded by opposing attorneys and judges.

Please note: I DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved.

I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You will not have to worry about me not being able to handle your important hearing because I have another scheduled at the same time. I set aside time for each client and each case so you get my undivided attention. I will never hand your case off to an associate.

Legal Answers
Q. Can I file the divorce papers I had drawn up in Georgia in Ohio? Because my county will not serve out of the county.
A: No, you cannot file Georgia divorce papers in Ohio. Also, it is possible to file for divorce here even if your spouse does not live here. Contact an attorney for assistance.
Q. CS is due monthly. My child has graduated and turns 18 in August, do I pay the August installment or stop in July?
A: Pay August.
Q. How can someone be named the biological father in a custody determination but is not considered legitimized?
A: Because that's the law. The father has to file for legitimation in order to obtain custody rights and be added to the birth certificate.
