Gotel & Associates, P.C. is an Atlanta based boutique law firm which prides itself on addressing and favorably resolving the needs of fathers who are facing Divorce, Child Custody and Child Support issues. We focus our attention on unwed fathers as well. We understand the family structure has changed extensively over the last 20 years. Today, there are more children born of unwed parents than in the past. Therefore, Legitimation and Paternity issues are of particular concern to the firm. Legitimation is the process in which an unwed, biological father seeks a court order to establish his legal rights to his child. Paternity is the process in which an unwed mother usually seeks a court order to establish her legal rights to receive child support. We believe strongly that children benefit from the love of both parents. As such, here at Gotel & Associates, P.C. we work feverishly with fathers who have an undeniable commitment to their children. Our motto is "a whole child is a healthy child."
In addition to our commitment to Family Law, we provide excellent representation in the areas of Criminal Law and Trusts and Estates Law.
- Family Law: Our family law attorney guides individuals and families through the sensitive issues that arise in divorce. We handle an array of family law concerns, such as divorce, child custody, child support, alimony/spousal support, fair and equitable property divisions, antenuptial and postnuptial agreements and other tangential family law issues. We help clients deal with difficult issues so that they can move forward after divorce or long relationship.
- Criminal Law: Criminal charges are a serious matter which could lead to imprisonment. It is never advisable to try and advocate on your own behalf. Here, at Gotel & Associates, P.C., we can assist you or your loved ones understand criminal charges filed against you, investigate the police's procedure before, during and after arrest and begin the zealous process of advocating on your behalf. Often times people make statements to the police or consent to a search of their person or property without understanding their legal rights. We seek to right the wrong and/or harm perpetuated by a few unscrupulous police. Gotel & Associates, P.C. can assist you in all criminal matters including DUIs, felonies and probation revocations.
- Life Planning: No matter your age, family composition, or value of assets, every living person should have a comprehensive plan that explains in reasonable detail to whom their assets should pass at death or some other life changing event. Postponing estate planning needs can lead to significant legal fees expended by your estate when a disgruntled survivor contests the terms of your will. Even worse, if you fail to make a will, the assets you acquired during your lifetime will be distributed by the State to survivors you may not have contemplated had you finalized your estate planning. At Gotel & Associates, P.C., we help you make deliberate and intelligent decisions about your life and estate planning. Afterwards, we work diligently to comprise a plan that is uniquely tailored to your needs. Our goal is to safeguard your assets from unnecessary probate and reduce your estate taxes, leaving more discretionary income for your beneficiaries.
