Atlanta divorce attorney Jill A. MasseyAs a child of divorced parents, Atlanta divorce attorney Jill A. Massey knows first-hand the emotional toll it takes on a child.

She not only cares about her client’s legal matters, but she also cares about them as individuals. “Because I truly care about each and every individual I represent, I treat every case with an extreme level of care,” Ms. Massey said. “I advocate for my clients how I would want someone to advocate for me and my family.”
