    Jason Redman

    We had a recent real estate closing here and just wanted to say that Sarah Karahalios was amazing to work with. We work with a lot of law offices and Sarah made this transaction smooth and easy.

    Jonathan Aceves

    After three weeks with another attorney in town who could not complete our closing involving a complicated title search, I called Attorney Jim Trotter, who said no problem and that we could close in two weeks. Not only did he deliver as promised, but he also answered emails promptly, even on his vacation, AND he foresaw a potential problem and took measures to proactively fix it. My husband and I are very impressed with Mr. Trotter's knowledge and professionalism, and his prices are reasonable as well. OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

    Kirby Yawn

    I recently (as a consultant) worked on a large real estate transaction with Jim Totter of Trotter Jones where we both represented the same client. Working with Jim was nothing short of a pleasure as his professionalism, promptness, knowledge and experience played a key role in representing the best interests of our client. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for representation in the state of GA.
