Background

Georgetta was born and raised in the Island of Jamaica.  Since elementary school, Georgetta knew that she wanted to become a lawyer.  Georgetta moved to the United States at sixteen years old and obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Miami where she was on the Provost Honor Roll.  She received her Juris Doctorate from Jacob D. Fuchsberg, Touro Law School in 2000 and passed the bar and became licensed to practice law in 2000.  Georgetta was the recipient of the 1999 Public Interest Fellowship for her commitment to volunteering in the public Interest field. Georgetta was an Editor on the International Law Review Journal, where she published “Organ Donation and Incompetents, can they consent? Comparative Analysis of American and Canadian Laws of Consent and brain death determination.”  Touro International L.R. Vol 10, Spring 2000. She took advantage of a judicial externship during her first year of law school where she worked with the late Honorable Cira Martinez in the Bronx Family Court.  After graduating from law school, Georgetta moved to Georgia and worked in the City of Atlanta Public Defender’s Office,  and then her own practice where she was able to gain extensive practical knowledge of the courts.  After 15 years in the courtroom, Georgetta settled into practicing exclusively family law.  In addition to working to ensure fair settlements in these cases, Georgetta believes a part of her role as an Attorney is to educate her clients about the impact the law will have on their specific issues.  She  strives to help them to understand the legal implications associated with their choices, and provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.  In addition to being admitted into Georgia Superior Court, she is also admitted to practice in the Court of Appeals, the Georgia Supreme Court, and the United States District Courts for the Northern, Middle and Southern Districts.  In her years of representing clients in family law cases, Georgetta has earned a reputation amongst her colleagues for being tough but caring, honest but shrewd, strong but sensitive.

Reviews

From Avvo.com

"Georgetta was our attorney through a very difficult custody hearing and was outstanding. We feel extremely lucky and honored to have had her as our representation. I cannot say enough about her knowledge, determination and professionalism. Not only did she have an unbelievable understanding of the law, she was sympathetic and compassionate with our situation, as if it were her own. She was prompt to respond to all of our questions/concerns and was very supportive throughout the process. Georgetta was nothing less than exceptional in all areas and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal advice, particularly in family law." Posted by Jennifer

"I was referred to Georgetta G Glaves-Innis to handle my divorce. I hired her and quickly found out that she specialized in divorce cases, as her track record had previously stated. I spoke briefly with her office assistant , however I was impressed that the majority of my question were answered directly from her. She was definitely the contact person during the settling of my case. All of my calls were answered/returned promptly and VERY professional! Ms. Glaves-Innis kept me well informed through out the entire process, which made life easy for me during this difficult time. I was well informed and clear on all the charges and received a copy of all the documents filed on my behalf.. In spite of the circumstance, this by far was one of the BEST experience I've had in terms of service!!" Posted by Cassandra.
