Serving Georgia families for almost two decades
Frightened and disoriented from my marital separation, I needed a lawyer who would patiently guide me through the process of my divorce and get the results I wanted for my settlement. Sheri did both and was efficient, steadfast, and smart. I never doubted the course of our case because Sheri gave me realistic knowledge and expectations based on her years of experience in family law.
Sheri approached my case with cautious confidence, and made me feel incredibly empowered, validated and hopeful despite many unknowns. In the end, we won my court case in arbitration, getting less than we asked, but more than we expected--which is pretty much an ideal outcome for divorce court. She had managed my expectations appropriately, didn't waste time and money, and truly felt like the ally I needed to settle my divorce. She has a clear understanding of how judges and opposing sides think, what to focus on, how to play up advantages, and where to avoid the landmines that could derail our case. Her advice and execution was excellent, and I appreciate her always keeping me abreast on her progress without running up my bills on excessive communications or procedures. I truly could not have asked for a better lawyer than Sheri Lake.
I cannot express the amount of gratitude that my husband and I have for Sheri Lake. We have dealt with attorneys on and off since 2007 trying to get custody of his 2 children. In less than a year, Sheri accomplished this for us. Our case needed someone dedicated and determined and Sheri is 100% both. No matter what time/day we needed her, she was always available by email or phone. When we went to court, we weren't as stressed because we knew she was going to have our back and if there was a way, she would find it. Sheri is an absolutely brilliant attorney, she outwitted the opposing counsel EVERY TIME there was an opportunity. She is fiesty, super strong and DOES NOT back down. She was there for us from beginning to end and we are forever grateful for all that she has done for us and for the future of my husbands' children.

Sheri Lake is extremely professional but also very down to earth and attentive to her client's needs. I was very anxious to get my divorce done quickly due to some particular financial/tax issues. Sheri and her staff were able to bring my divorce to conclusion in just 3 months from initial engagement through a negotiated settlement and minimal court involvement. Sheri always responded to my questions and concerns quickly and thoughtfully. She is brilliant with numbers, which is a MUST for any family lawyer, and has a very practical and strategic approach to the way she practices. Family law is a difficult area because there are so many variables (nothing is black & white) and that is why it so important to have an experienced professional in your corner. I recommend Sheri to anyone who is dealing with any family law issue.

My divorce began to unfold a week before Christmas 2014. While families were preparing for celebrations and wrapping gifts, my life was quickly falling apart. I had no family nearby because I had immigrated to the U.S., but I had friends, and one pointed me in the direction of Sheri.
On Christmas Eve I met Sheri for the first time as I handed over the first of many divorce documents. I’m not sure how many attorneys would be willing to work for a client on Christmas Eve... but she did. She understood the urgency of my situation and ran with it.
Sheri represented me for three rounds of litigation, starting with divorce, followed by modifications, all in the span of a little over 4 years. Here’s my personal takeaway; I started the divorce process as a victim and ended as a survivor stronger than ever. Sheri was instrumental in my waking up to a reality that I don’t wish on anyone, but am grateful I put behind me.
She is meticulous, has extensive expertise, and will be frank on where you stand. She’ll ensure that your children are spoken for and delivered an arrangement that’s in their best interests. Your children will truly matter to her.
You have the ultimate choices, and she will honor these, but she’ll also remind you of your accountability in these choices because there’s no perfect ending, no perfect win, and no perfect solution in divorce. That’s the reality and she’s willing to be transparent on this.
No nonsense, but all empathy. You can count on her to help you navigate your difficult family circumstances with a level head and grace.
