I am a versatile family law attorney attorney who is skilled in bringing resolution to complex and simple family law matters. I combine my education and professional experience with personal experience to guide clients with strategic legal advice, compassionate support and solution-focused advocacy.
As a family law attorney and former social worker, I am experienced in helping clients with domestic, family law and divorce issues including paternity, legitimation, child custody modification, child support modification, grandparent visitation, enforcement of court orders, family violence and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. I also act as a Guardian ad Litem in contested custody cases and mediate family law cases.
Before I helped start Kaye, Lembeck, Hitt & French, I was a partner at Warner Bates, where I practiced for fourteen years. My work in family and domestic law has garnered multiple awards, including recognition as one of Atlanta Magazine’s Super Lawyers, Rising Stars and Top Women Attorneys in Georgia; Georgia Trend’s Legal Elite, Best Advocate and Member, 1st Place Team in the 2006 William W. Daniel National Invitational Mock Trial Competition; and Outstanding Student, Weltner Inn of Court, 2006/2007.
I contributed to Georgia Divorce, a guide to divorce practice published by Thomson Reuters, from 2008 to 2021. I also co-authored the Domestic Relations section of Mercer Law Review’s Annual Survey of Georgia Law from 2008-2021.
I was raised in Columbus, Georgia. I attended the University of Georgia and Georgia State University. I am married with two children. I am active professionally with the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers, the State Bar of Georgia, the Atlanta Bar Association, the Dekalb Bar Association, the Cobb Bar Association and Weltner Family law Inn of Court. Personally, I am active in my church and in my children's schools.
