THE MORE YOU KNOW OF OUR HISTORY, THE MORE CONFIDENT YOU ARE IN US

Our History

The entire FMLG team is dedicated to the desires of our clients, while simultaneously managing client expectations alongside the realities of the laws that govern family law. Our performance is carried out through the detail-specific attention that is given to every case and our insatiable drive to compete and perform in and out of court.

What Makes Us Different

BEAST MODE

The saying is “if you’re going to be a monkey, then be a Gorilla.” The attorneys working for the firm you hire should always be equipped to enter into the courtroom with an eye towards victory. Our clients have often described our performance in court as “beast mode” or “beast like” because of the fierce, no nonsense, and resilient efforts we embody in the courtroom. If you need a firm that will Fight to Protect Your Children, Assets and Money when they are Under Attack, you need Family Matters Law Group.

INSIGHT

When you hire a family law firm, you want that firm and its attorneys to have a high level of insight about the courts and the judges that your case will be in front of. If the firm you retained doesn’t know how a particular courthouse sets cases for final hearings or how a particular Judge feels about joint physical custody then you didn’t hire the right firm. Family Matters Law Group has spent a considerable amount of time in the courtroom (we don not shy away from litigation) and in the courthouse. We believe its important to develop meaningful relationships with courthouse staff because after all, it is the staff that assist in moving your case to finality. We have positioned ourselves to litigate before a host of judges, in several metro Atlanta counties, about various family law issues; through this, we have gained an incredible amount of insight into the views, opinions, and rulings of these judges.

Our Approach to legal matters

APPROACH

How We Do It

Before determining an approach to a specific legal matter, Family Matters Law Group wants to know where you see your case going and what you expect to accomplish as a result.

YOUR DESIRES. Some law firms and attorneys will immediately begin spewing out what they can do for you without first knowing if that is what you truly want them to do. When you are clear about what you wish to accomplish, that’s where we begin our approach.

MAKING YOU MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE. We don’t just pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about family law, we also pride ourselves on the way we educate our clients on family laws. We take the time to show you actual statutes and case law that relate to your case and discuss how your facts fit or do not fit. Your knowledge of the law will help guide you in the decisions that you make and the outcomes you desire.

MANAGING EXPECTATIONS. Unfortunately, there are so many other law firms that will tell you what you want to hear just to get you in the door, even though they are aware that the laws do not support what you may be seeking. We do not accept every case because we understand that hiring a firm to represent you requires a mutual connection between the firm and the client. Along with this connection comes the courage of that firm to properly manage the client’s expectations alongside the realities of the laws governing family. Put another way, our firm absolutely will not improperly lead you to believe what we know is not true simply to make you feel good or retain our services.

WHY HIRING FAMILY MATTERS LAW GROUP MEANS SUCCESS FOR YOU

ABOVE STANDARD

We refuse to settle for the “standard” family law outcomes and verdicts. We fight for more quality parenting time with your children, fair calculation of income and child support, and ensuring your end goals are met.

BELIEVE
