divorce & separate maintenance
Paternity, legitimation & modification
alimony & child support
Approximately 70% of our practice is concentrated in family law, which also comprises approximately 70% of every Superior Court’s civil docket.
Every case is special because every family is different. We are always mindful that in most cases there will always be family ties that bind the parties after divorce.
Our challenge is to protect your rights, and assure your safety and your financial security, while preserving a relationship through your children.
After all, there will always be birthdays, graduations, weddings and grandchildren to share after you’ve split the property and the money.
Divorce is a Court of Equity, which is another way of saying “fairness” and we strive to achieve a fair result for all concerned because unfair results foster future battles.
We strive to settle cases fairly for everyone, to minimize present and future conflict and expense.
If the other side does not want to be fair, well, they must be made to be fair, and we know how to cross swords and win those battles, if necessary.
“Family law may be a battleground, but no one wins when the divorce terms are unfair. Family lawyers don’t win divorce cases, they just help or hinder the parties in moving on.”
There is no pain like the broken heart of divorce and no time when you are more in need of compassion and understanding or have more need of a champion for your cause. At The Outlaw Firm, we strive to provide both.
BUSINESS LITIGATION & ESTATE LITIGATION
At The Outlaw Firm, we are general civil litigators who understand the nuances of settlement negotiation in the conference room and trial strategy in the courtroom.
We have litigated in all classes of Georgia’s courts, including Superior Courts, State Courts, Probate Courts, and local courts such as Magistrate and Municipal Courts.
Whether your dispute is resolved by settlement negotiation or mediation, or must be resolved in court, we are prepared to provide the patient attention to detail, research acumen, and litigation experience necessary to investigate the merits of your claim, to seek a just and fair settlement and, when necessary, to present your case at trial.
In addition to family law, our practice includes estate litigation, contractual and business disputes, tort claims, and legal malpractice. We never shy from a fight but negotiate and litigate from carefully prepared positions of strength.
The Outlaw Firm has the reputation of winning at trial, which enables us to obtain favorable settlements out of court in the majority of our cases.
Additionally, if your case requires specialized expertise beyond our practice areas, we are networked with many other legal and business professionals and are positioned to associate the expertise of specialists in all areas of tort and business law.
Bring us your case and we will diligently prosecute it and zealously advocate the most favorable outcome on your behalf.

We are experienced wordsmiths who excel in the researching and drafting of appellate briefs, and in the art and science of advocacy when presenting a case before an appellate court.
We understand intimately the precise timing and specialized process, and we have a solid record of winning appeals.
