Atlanta >Somerstein , Evin L. - Hunter, Weinstein
Completely unethical and underhanded practices. I never write reviews and am only doing so because anyone searching for an ethical and fair family/divorce attorney should steer clear of Robert J. Hunter. Not only was he purely concerned with ensuring his client got everything she demanded, he did so with blinders on, and effectively helped his client alienate her children from their father, giving license to her slanderous, outright lies about him, which, in the end, had their effect of serious parental alienation. He helped his client paint a good, kind, incredibly giving father as someone who his children now despise because of her lies, all in the name of making his client appear the victim in order to garner sympathy. Moreover, Mr. Hunter fed whatever lines he needed to his client's then spouse during the mediation process to present "good faith" promises to him in exchange for his cooperation when it came to a completely off-balance financial settlement. And in the end the "promises" of documents, tax-allowances, and other "understandings" and "in the spirit of cooperation" agreements that he made to his client's then spouse never came to fruition and his client made off with everything, stripping her ex-husband of not only his financial stability in order to give her nearly everything he had worked so hard for his entire life (while she stayed at home and enjoyed the life with which he provided her), but of his relationship with his children. Throughout the process when her now ex-husband tried fighting on the grounds of extreme parental alienation, no one would listen, and, sadly, today this man no longer has any shred of the strong, loving relationships he once had with his children. And he is the one who not only lost nearly everying but had to pay Mr. Hunter to take it from him on behalf of his ex-wife. It really is shameful how backwards the divorce laws are in some parts of this country, still, turning a blind eye on father's rights. And in the end all Mr. Hunter did was help destroy a family in the courts of Gwinnett County, Georgia. Just because a client comes to an attorney with a story doesn't mean he should throw all ethics out the window in order to make a buck. I'm really not sure how he sleeps at night.
Hunter, Weinstein & Somerstein, Have faith in a legal firm - Not your average Joes.
Excellent, fantastic group of folks who are dedicated to serving their clientele with the utmost integrity. Speaking from personal experience, they do not fit the typical stereotype of the words "attorney/lawyer". Behind the doors of this firm, you will find dedicated advocates who are seasoned with the legal system, family law, and hands-on experience in personal family issues. They're not seeking to 'get your money'...they aim to serve in the best interests of families.
I consider Mr. Hunter and his partners very ethical and hold them in high esteem. Communications and follow through are superb. They offer solutions and strategies to help minimize legal costs. In this day and age, that's true value.
Highly recommended and the best family law practice in Atlanta.
One final comment: Don't waste your money with anyone else. These guys have it together; they have it right; they're committed and personally sacrificial to their cause. I have witnessed this first hand. It's not money you're spending, it's an investment into your future!
Sincere warning from a loving parent against this firm for any family law issues involving children!.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

Your actions compel me to warn more people of how diabolical you are so they will not make the mistake of retaining you for any family law mattes that involve children. Because you have an award plaque that totally misrepresents what I have experienced, there may be people in your office buildings that may be misled into retaining you and their children suffer as ours.
It is fact you threatened a proven parent with arrest when trying to get medical treatment for a daughter who was locked in an apartment unsupervised all day for almost a week while your client was at work. When the good parent finally prevailed in getting into the apartment despite threat of arrest and took the minor daughter to a doctor, it was discovered she had a double fractured collarbone! The doctor wrote a letter expressing his shock that due to your wrongful interference it took a week for the daughter to get medical treatment!! You are a greedy and a shame to your oath to the bar, aren?t you?
You also threatened a parent with arrest for stalking after the school had asked the parent to help the student who had been in a gifted accelerated program but due to the stress you apparently purposefully create for cash (attorneys confess it is a tactic that unethical firms like yours generate strife, as conflict = cash) the minor not only failed out of gifted program and then started failing school! Instead of helping your client develop character, you defend your client?s perjury who was caught lying!
