i know what you are going through... i've been there too.

In 2005, on a Georgia Interstate, I was the victim of a hit-and-run driver. The accident itself was horrifying. The injuries were bad. The betrayal by my own insurance company was worse. I had a very hefty Uninsured Motorist Policy that would have provided money for the help I needed. Instead of being on my side, my own auto insurance company duped me into signing my rights away for a quick check. Don't let this happen to you. Call me.


personal injury

When you are injured in a car wreck, your rights and recovery must be protected from not only the at-fault-driver's automobile insurer, but also medical providers and sometimes even your own health insurance company. I have fought hard to preserve my clients rights and maximize their recovery. And I've won.

criminal law

From misdemeanors to violent felonies, I've handled them all. No matter how big or small your criminal charge is, I handle each case with laser focus, precision and fortitude. You will always be informed of and involved with each and every step of your criminal case. 

Family law

Going through a divorce can be emotionally devastating. It can also be financially devastating if you don't have the right advocate by your side effectively protecting your interests. Let me help shoulder your burden through these trying times. 


"Thank the Lord I had this wonderful attorney defending me. I got a second shot at a free life all thanks to her and am eternally grateful for you.
If you are looking for an attorney who truly cares about you and the case, look no further. Mrs.Margaret deserves 10 out of 5 stars haha. Much love and thanks" -CG
