An effective, passionate attorney and former psychotherapist serving metro Atlanta clients with divorce, post-divorce and custody needs

   Helping you make the transition to the next chapter in your life

Strong and protective advocacy for family law clients is the focus of Howard A. Gold's law practice. He will stand up to others who want to intimidate his clients, and he will provide the personalized attention necessary for each client to resolve their legal issues and move ahead in the best possible way. His law practice focuses on matters involving Divorce, Post-Divorce, Custody and Parenting Time (Visitation), Division of Property, and sexual victimization by professionals and family members.

Mr. Gold has practiced law in Georgia since 1974, and he has also been admitted to the bars of New York State and Washington, D.C. His knowledge and experience in the area of family law is well regarded throughout Georgia. Formerly a psychotherapist, he was involved in the drafting and passage of Georgia's Family Violence Protection Orders as well as the Child Abuse Reporting Act. Mr. Gold conducts workshops around the state for psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, and clergy on how law impacts therapy practice.

His well-appointed law office provides a warm environment for consultations and is located in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia.

Testimonials tell the story

Mr. Gold frequently receives referrals from professionals in the therapy community, former clients, and even from adversarial clients impressed by his strong advocacy in opposition to them. Some of the comments from his former clients include:

"Thanks so much for giving 100% of your heart and soul to [my children] and me! You are great and I respect you and your talents." – C.

"Thank you for your caring and concern. I felt that I was in excellent hands throughout the process and that the end result was even better than I had dreamed possible." – L.

"Thank you for your phone consultation with me last week. Your advice was most helpful and fit with my client's wishes. I appreciated your time and prompt attention to my phone call. Having heard from other therapists, I know that your ongoing education of therapists regarding legal matters as well as your availability for consultation are very much appreciated by the therapeutic community. Thanks again for your assistance." – A.W.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
