    "Great Litigator, Excellent Corporate Adviser"
    We have employed Devlin as our corporate counsel for several years. During that time, he has helped us to set up several subsidiaries of our primary corporation. He has also served as our litigation counsel, defending us in courts throughout Georgia. While aggressive in Court, Devlin never fails to maintain high professional standards and act as a Southern gentleman. He is quick to respond to threats to our business, and he never fails to quickly return our calls and emails, no matter the time or whatever else he may be immersed in at the time we reach out to him. We cannot more highly recommend Devlin.

    "Satisfied client"
    I hired Ken Barton to help me through a pretty significant legal dispute that I experienced. Throughout the litigation, Ken communicated well with me and was very responsive, and I could tell that he really cared about my case. We got a decent outcome from the case, and I was able to move on with my life. I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but I would definitely hire him again.
