"David was an outstanding attorney and would recommend him to anyone dealing with family matters in the Georgia Courts. David was extremely knowledgeable regarding Georgia law. He was professional and practical with his guidance and provided valuable information that helped me navigate through a difficult situation. He was very responsive and also sensitive to the emotional aspect of the experience. He did not try to provide unnecessary information or charge unnecessary fees. I have gladly recommended him to friends." Posted by Wendy.
