More than 30 years ago, Warner, Bates, McGough, McGinnis & Portnoy was built on a foundation of three guiding principles: integrity, excellence and getting results for our clients. Today, as one of Atlanta's most exclusive and successful domestic relations law firms, we continue to represent our clients with that same dedication to protecting their assets, guiding them through the legal process and providing trusted legal counsel during what are often difficult and trying circumstances.

While we cover the gamut of domestic relations issues, our specialty is representing select clients in complex matrimonial dissolution cases and providing effective counsel for disputes involving significant areas of discord. Our focused experience enables us to be highly successful in the negotiation and settlement of domestic cases. But when litigation is necessary, our team is equally skilled and highly effective in the courtroom. Both in Atlanta, and around the country, we are known for our expertise in handling high asset, complex and difficult family law-related matters.

Our attorneys are recognized authorities on domestic relations and family law issues. Having lectured extensively and published countless books and articles on a wide range of domestic relations topics, our lawyers have also appeared on numerous national and local television programs. We are also bar association leaders and members of such prestigious professional organizations as the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Four of our lawyers are former chairmen of the Family Law Section of the Georgia Bar and have also served as Presidents of the Georgia Chapter of the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers - membership of which is one of the highest honors a family lawyer can earn. A number of our lawyers have also been repeatedly listed among The Best Lawyers In America.
