Marietta Divorce Attorney Diona M. Potter

Marietta divorce attorney Diona M. Potter enjoys practicing family law because of its complete lack of monotony. Anything can happen on any given day.

“I know that, at the end of the day, what I’m doing affects my client’s life, not only in the short term but for the future,” Ms. Potter said. “I will do my best to help them craft the best possible future.”

Ms. Potter believes preparation is key when it comes to practicing family law. If anything, she over-prepares because every case is so fact-specific.

“Even in the best of circumstances, the process is difficult,” she said, “but I am here every step of the way to guide you and get you through it.”
