SoGa Law Practice Areas

Family Law

We represent clients in divorce, custody modifications, grandparents’ custody actions and visitation actions, child support, legitimation, name changes, adoptions and other domestic relations matters. This practice area is our largest focus.

We employ a wide range of strategies and create individualized plans for representation in each case. We believe our attention to detail and personal touch help us to better understand our clients and make sure they receive the help they need in these sensitive and emotion-filled types of litigation.

We serve as guides and counselors, but we also empathize with your individual circumstances as we seek a positive outcome.

Juvenile Matters

Representation of parents, grandparents, biological fathers, others involved in DFCS investigations and active cases, deprived and/or dependent child cases, custody and legitimation in juvenile court, termination of parental rights and other actions.

If you are being investigated by DFCS, we can stand with you every step of the way to make sure your rights are protected, to offer creative solutions and alternatives to removal of children from the home, and to help you get your children back as soon as possible.

The rules governing the juvenile courts are very difficult to follow and there are many pitfalls for the unwary.

Bankruptcy/Debt Relief

We represent individuals and businesses, including family farms, for the filing Chapter 7, 13 or 12 bankruptcies.

Since bankruptcy is not always the first choice, or a choice at all, we also engage in debt negotiation and debt resolution using a variety of approaches and techniques.

Creditor’s Rights

We also represent banks, businesses and individual creditors in litigation matters in bankruptcy court like filing motions for relief from stay, objections to confirmation of Chapter 13 plans, claims filing and proof, and other things that creditors caught up in the bankruptcy system have a difficult time doing on their own.

Especially those persons who might only rarely have contact with the bankruptcy system and need more individualized attention.

Probate/Estate Planning

From the preparation of wills, powers of attorney, creation of trusts, advance directives, living wills and durable powers of attorney for healthcare, we approach your own unique financial circumstances to ensure that your assets are protected and your wishes are met in this life and after you’re gone, to help your loved ones handle matters in their time of grief.

We also prepare guardianships and conservatorships for minors and disabled adults, and transfer of probate cases in other states to Georgia where necessary. Finally, Mr. Bass serves as guardian ad litem via appointment by the court in a variety of probate matters, to ensure that the rights of children and those alleged to be incompetent are protected.

Real Estate

For most people, their homes and lands are the most valuable asset they will ever own. Make sure you have someone clearing representing YOU and not the bank or other parties in your real estate transactions. We handle sales of land and refinancing of all kinds.

I also prepare title opinions on property, issue title insurance, and handle real estate-related litigation, which can be time consuming and very stressful for the participants. We prepare and file all manner of real estate instruments, such as warranty and quitclaim deeds, security deeds, liens, releases and other documents.

With 40 plus years combined experience in real estate transactions and banking, we know what you need and how to provide it.

Criminal Matters

When you are accused of a crime, you need someone who will get to work immediately and seek a resolution, someone to be proactive in your defense, someone who will attempt to put you in the best position if a matter has to go forward to a plea or to a trial. We handle criminal matters for felony and misdemeanor cases, including DUI and other traffic offenses.

We also help people get their driver’s license reinstated, which is a time-consuming and difficult process that can seem impossible for many, but we do it routinely and know how to get things done as fast as possible.
