Mr. Payne was a godsend! I recently relocated to Georgia from California where I had been struggling to procure a divorce for quite some time. Upon my first telephone consultation with Mr. Payne, he clearly explained the process that needed to take place, an approximate timeline and the expense involved. He provided every aspect as laid out with the utmost professionalism and courtesy as well as finalizing my divorce ahead of schedule and under budget. I couldn't have asked for him to be any more considerate in guiding me through an emotionally difficult process. Thank you Mr. Payne!!

Sandy Carr

When finding myself in a life changing situation, I wanted a lawyer with good morals and values to represent me. I also wanted to find someone who could represent me without becoming a number in a large law firm. In choosing Mr. Payne I felt I received the time and attention required to move forward in my circumstances with positive results. He and his staff were both professional, knowledgeable, thorough and caring which meant a lot to me while moving through a difficult time. I was continually involved and kept updated throughout the whole legal process.
