Protecting Your Interests In Family Law Matters

Even the strongest person can feel overwhelmed by the thought of going to court to resolve a legal issue involving their family. The truth is, very few family law matters end up being decided in court. As lawyer and mediator, I resolve the vast majority of cases I handle through negotiation or mediation. If you need to go to court to resolve an issue, I will be by your side every step of the way.

I am Meredith W. Ditchen-Oakley, an attorney in Woodstock, Georgia. I provide legal services in divorce, child custody, adoption and other family law matters. I also help individuals and families draft wills and other estate-planning documents to protect their beneficiaries. I serve clients throughout the northwest Atlanta metro area.
