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
23 Questions Answered

Q. After retirement my husband admitted he is an atheist; I believe in God. Could I be granted a divorce in this situation?
A: In GA, anyone can have a divorce for any reason whatsoever. If you wake up one morning and decide you no longer want to be married, you can take a divorce without having to prove anything else. Religion doesn’t even have to be discussed to get the divorce.
Q. My divorce was in Tx. I'm living here for now. Ex not abiding by our decree. Do I go back to tx and use tx. Lawyer?
A: If your ex still lives in TX, then you need to follow up on this in TX. If, however, the ex lives in GA, then you would have to file here to first domesticate the foreign (TX) order and then file to enforce the order (formerly TX now newly GA) here.
Q. Can I sue my ex and his parents for money back on renovations and intimidating me into leaving his residence?
A: Without a written contract setting out an agreement between all the owners, you really have left yourself exposed to this bad result. Sorry.
