"David has provided me great legal advice and representation on several custody and child support issues. was able to successfully undo an illegal garnishment order without having to return to court. this saved us many dollars and many frustrating days. subsequently, he negotiated a child support modification with proper a step down for when eldest child turned 18 after an incompetent judge failed to include it when I was represented by a lesser skilled attorney. I highly recommend David for domestic matters and, at a minimum, you should at least interview him during your attorney search."
"Divorce is never easy but I have to say David made it as easy as possible - I had spoken with a few other attorneys before proceeding with David but there was something about those other attorneys that left me feeling eh...David was very upfront and honest and from our first meeting I knew he was the attorney to help me through this process and I was right, the entire process took about 18 months but he along with his team kept me well informed and did everything they could possibly do to keep things progressing"
"In July 2010, I retained Mr. Beaudry to continue representation of my divorce case pertaining to all aspects including trial proceedings. Mr. Beaudry continuously demonstrated his keen understanding of Georgia Family Law throughout my lengthy case and provided powerful representation at every occasion which exceeded expectation. Worked extremely efficiently and effectively on case. Clearly motivated by serving his client-base with best-possible case outcomes."
"David is a very sharp lawyer, in my process of finding an attorney, I interviewed with 4 different prospects. David was the best, he was very attentive to everything we discussed, he had a great game plan, and he executed accurately. It was a great relief having him represent me, and it was an even bigger relief after we walked out the courtroom. He is very well educated and professional, absolutely outstanding job."
