I believe that a strong firm is built on knowledgeable paralegals and attorneys, which leads to better client satisfaction and higher firm profits.

 

Family Law Bootcamps quickly and cost-efficiently train paralegals and attorneys on the nuances of Georgia Family Law.  We offer a Beginner Bootcamp, which is highly recommended for those new to family law. We also offer various Advanced Bootcamps, which focus on diving deep into a specific subject, such as discovery or financials.

 

All Bootcamps are kept small with limited Bootcampers in each session to allow more interaction and specific instruction on the subject.
