*** NOTICE ***
Our office will remain open during the current coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue operating as usual and implementing common-sense procedures such as using hand sanitizer, cleaning and disinfecting our office on a daily basis, refraining from shaking hands, asking that people not attend appointments with children, and, offering teleconference and videoconference options to anyone with potential exposure or who may be experiencing possible symptoms.
This situation impacts each and every one of us, our families, and, our loved ones. In support of our local community, we are waiving our initial consultation fee for any potential new client wishing to consult with us about preparation of a Last Will & Testament and/or Advance Directive for Health Care.
Although the Georgia Supreme Court has suspended most hearing and trial calendars throughout the state for the next few weeks, we remain available to handle hearings for emergency matters the Court has deemed “essential”, including:
(1) where an immediate liberty or safety concern is present requiring the attention of the court as soon as the court is available;
(2) criminal court search warrants, arrest warrants, initial appearances, and bond reviews;
(3) domestic abuse temporary protective orders and restraining orders;
(4) juvenile court delinquency detention hearings and emergency removal matters; and
(5) mental health commitment hearings.

OUR FIRM’S PHILOSOPHY
Our clients tell us we’re different. We explain your options in plain English. We do what we say we’re going to do. We return calls. We prepare our clients before court. We give honest evaluations. Most importantly, we believe in our clients.
We advocate. We defend. We protect. When all’s said and done, our job is to navigate clients through the judicial process. To do that effectively… and to achieve the best possible outcome for all of our clients… we remain dedicated to certain beliefs:
INFORMATION… clients have the right to remain informed about their cases.
INVOLVEMENT.. every client has the right to be fundamentally involved in his or her own case.
UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE… no two clients or cases are ever identical.
QUALITY… clients have the right to consistent, quality representation… each and every day.
