Biography

As an athlete for 20 years, Mike recognizes the benefits of hard work, proper training and being prepared for the competition. Today, these traits help him achieve winning results for his clients. A graduate of the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University, Mike has litigated in a diverse range of law throughout Georgia and has appeared as lead trial counsel in 47 Georgia counties. Mike has served as co-counsel with some of Atlanta's largest firms, and he has also represented family members of some of the best known attorneys in the country. He is an experienced trial attorney representing parties in divorce, alimony, child custody, child support, property division, pre-nuptial agreements, grandparent’s visitation, modifications and legitimations. Mike is especially proud of the fact that lawyers and judges have asked him to represent them in their own personal matters. Mike has been appointed, and has served, as a Special Assistant District Attorney, a Special Master, and has been appointed by the Courts as a Guardian ad Litem for children and the elderly. Additionally, Mike has been rated confidentially and independently by other attorneys through the Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating process as having an exemplary reputation, a high professional standing and a well-established practice with a significant client base. He has received the highest rating through this same process regarding his ethical standards evidencing his adherence to professional standards of conduct, ethics, reliability, diligence and other attributes relevant to the discharge of his professional responsibilities. In 2005, the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission recommended Mike to Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as being "Well Qualified" to be a Superior Court Judge in the state, and in 2015 he began hosting the radio show "Ask the Lawyer" heard in four states.

Legal Answers
106 Questions Answered
Q. My son is now 19 , my mother adopted him when I went to Prison. He now wants to reverse it , or have his original mom
A: Just have him change his name by filing for a name change through the court.
Q. I just received a lien from the Massachusetts child support agency. What does this mean?
A: Most, if not all, the states cooperate in the collection of child support. Typically in a situation like this, MA will send to the GA child support agency in your county the necessary info for GA to collect from you here in GA. If you believe the lien is a mistake, I would certainly urge you to contact MA counsel. Please do not ignore this matter. They can seize your tax refunds, wages and suspend your drivers license if you remain delinquent.
Q. I currently reside in Georgia. What paperwork is required to allow my son to live in with his father for a school year?
A: As Mr. Jordan explained, there is not enough information given for us to be able to provide a competent response. I would tell you that if the father resides outside the state of Georgia, if your son lives with him for six (6) months, the jurisdiction of the case would swing away from GA to the other state. If this happens, the next litigation in which you might be involved would take place in the other state. You should not make any (as in not a single one) decisions about this until you have met and spoken with a good child custody attorney.
