If you are reading this, it's possible you may be seeking guidance in a family matter. Knowing Andee and Amy personally, I've been overwhelmingly impressed not only with their professionalism, but also their insight into the intricacies of family law. Though I haven't been in need of their services on a personal level, I have referred them to friends and acquaintances will full confidence that they are in the best hands, and with little worry that the referral will reflect on me in a negative manner. What impresses me most is their caring attitude, making sure that their clients are in a safe space from day one.

I’m from out of state and needed an attorney in Georgia to help get my kids out of a bad environment. Looking for a great attorney in your hometown is hard enough but looking for one on the internet, out of state, is even harder. I came across the Waggoner Hastings website and after reading their reviews, I decided to give them a call. I needed to be able to trust an attorney who would not just take my money but someone who would fight for the best interest of my children and Amy did exactly what I was looking for in an attorney. Amy and her team attacked my case from every angle. Amy knows the law and is not afraid to deliberate. Amy is highly respected in her field and I would highly recommend her for anyone needing help with a custody case.
08:59 06 Nov 20
My consult with Amy was extremely helpful and she was warm, professional, and supportive during a difficult time. She’s five stars in my book!

Andee and her team saved my life. I went through a horrible divorce, and I didn't know how I was going to make it through. My ex made up terrible stories about me, trying to take our kids and avoid properly splitting our assets. I was completely overwhelmed. Andee knew exactly how to handle the situation. She calmed my anxiety very step of the way.This is my first Christmas in my new home with my kids and I could not be more thankful for her and her amazing team. She and her folks were relentless until the end. I tell anyone I know that if they need a divorce or custody lawyer they have to call Andee.

The service we received was professional, thorough and understanding of our situation throughout the lengthy period of our interaction. The entire staff was engaged and helpful whenever we needed advice and counsel. We fully recommend Waggoner Hastings LLC.

I met Ms. Waggoner almost 11 years ago to the day. I was going through a horrible divorce. At the time my son was only 1 year old and my daughter was 3 years old. I was up against the wall with my ex being a very respected physician and I was just a carpenter...I felt like no one listened to anything I had to say. Ms. Waggoner was assigned to be our GAL and it made all the difference in the world. She took her time to really get to know me and my children... to look past the mountain of baseless allegations to see the truth. Because of her efforts I got joint legal custody of my children and today, 11 years later, my oldest, my daughter, lives with me. I have custody of her. Besides my family no one else believed in me. Ms. Waggoner spoke for and stood up for my children’s best interests and for that I will be forever grateful. Thank you again.Always,The Schwartz’s

Amy Waggoner has provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. I found her to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable and honest. While working with Amy, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and she did not steer me wrong.I would recommend Amy to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Amy Waggoner again.

From the moment I met her, Andee’s advice and attitude towards me and my case were excellent. I was displeased with my first attorney. I did not feel that he had my best interests at heart, and he did not keep me apprised of what was going on in my case. It made my fear and anxiety about the situation increase exponentially. I did my research and found Andee, and it was the best thing I ever did. She is so knowledgeable about the law, and she was direct and candid with me about what to expect throughout the process. She is extremely detail oriented, which I really appreciated. She knew the ins and outs of my case like the back of her hand. If you want a lawyer that just reads a few of your documents the night before and just shows up in court and wings it, she isn’t the one for you. She diligently prepared to seriously protect and defend me where needed. No stone was left unturned. I was extremely comforted by that. It was the first time I had hope in all of this. She and her office were so responsive. I am so happy with the result in my case and I know it is because I put my trust in Andee. She is truly outstanding.

I hired Andee to handle my divorce case based on a referral by a close friend. She immediately made me feel comfortable and calm. She not only answered my questions and calmed my anxieties, but she is an excellent listener and I respected her direction and guidance. I always knew she had my back. I always felt that she was genuinely concerned for my well-being and the well-being of my children. She was very responsive to me and was very approachable throughout the process, and that was so important to me. At the end of the day, I received a much better settlement than I anticipated. I recommend this law firm, and Andee Hastings for anyone who needs a brilliant, competent, skilled divorce lawyer.

I hired Waggoner Hastings, specifically Andee Hastings, to assist with my modification case. I was not happy with my first attorney. There were problems with my parenting plan and documents, and they didn't protect me like they should have. I needed someone with skills and that I could trust to fix them. Andee fought for me from the first moment to the very last. We ended up resolving it by agreement but it wasn't easy. Every step of the way was a fight because my ex is difficult. But my relationship with my child was on the line, and I would not accept anything less than the best. I am relieved and happy to say that is exactly what I got with Andee. She not only fixed the problems that were already there, but also accomplished things for me that I had hoped for but didn't necessarily think I would get. I finally feel like we can move forward with clarity and I am so grateful for that.

Ms. Hastings mediated my divorce case. She did an excellent job. I have had several friends that went through terrible, bitter divorces and I didn't want that. My wife and I chose to mediate instead. My case was mostly straight forward, but there were some sticky areas. She helped us work through our problem areas and arguments and get an agreement much more quickly than I expected. Saved us so much money and time. If you need great mediator, call Andee.

I went through a terrible divorce, and a horrible custody battle. Originally I thought I was going to represent myself in order to save money. That would have been an huge mistake. These women not only kept me sane, but also helped me keep primary custody of my children. Were it not for their expert counsel, I know I would have made errors that would have cost me custody of my children. I know they had other cases and clients, but they always made me feel like my case was important. Andee Hastings is my hero. I want my daughter to be just like her when she grows up. Her and her entire team protected me at every turn and helped my understand every step of the process. I can't recommend Andee and this law firm enough.
12:16 30 Nov 18
I contacted Andee about my divorce after having issues with my current attorney being slow and non-responsive. My divorce was moving so slow and I felt like things weren't forward at all after over a year in the process. I interviewed several attorneys and finally chose Andee. I really can't recommend Andee highly enough. She got my case back on track and moved it forward. She was a tremendous help to me during mediation and didn't allow me to simply take agreements because I was so ready to be done---she knew I would regret it later and made sure I understood what I was doing and risking at every turn. She was always very responsive to me on questions or issues that arose. This process is so hard. You really need an attorney who is shrewd, willing to fight the good fight and will help you understand when to let things go. She practices law with a great balance of integrity, kindness, and strategic thinking. I would recommend her to anyone I know going through the process.

Amy Waggoner and the team at Waggoner Hastings handled some delicate family matters for my wife and me, including drafting our wills. Amy was patient and kind, and clearly explained all of the issues we needed to be aware of. We have dealt with lawyers for various reasons during our lives. We felt safe in her capable hands. She is an outstanding lawyer with a truly sharp mind. I encourage anyone needing a family lawyer to go to Waggoner Hastings. They will take great care of you.

I had a great experience with this law firm. I hired Andee Hastings to fix problems in my settlement agreement. It was written very poorly and I had obligations for years beyond anything reasonable. I was recommended to her by a lawyer and friend that I trust, and she lived up to the recommendation. It was very difficult, both because of my difficult ex-wife and the law was not on our side, which I knew going in. But she found a way, made a plan, and kept going until we fixed the problems. There were times I thought it wouldn't happen, but she didn't waver. She remained steady and confident and pushed through until we obtained the result I wanted and needed. I admire and respect her tenacity. It is exactly what I needed. She has an ability to be both cooperative when appropriate and necessary and do battle when needed. It's amazing to witness. I saw the review complaining about someone in the firm and fees. That could not have been more opposite to my experience. Andee and her staff were very cost conscious and explained to me at every point what we could do to keep costs down. I know these things cost money and there were certain choices i made that increased the cost, but they were careful with my money and I was grateful for that. In the end, she saved me so much money, not only for fixing all of the problems in the divorce documents but also preventing further litigation. I recommend Andee and the firm to anyone needing help with a divorce or post-divorce issue.

I was married for over 30 years and totally in love with my husband. I did not want a divorce. I found Ms. Hastings, and she immediately calmed me and helped me understand I would survive this. She helped me through this process in a way I can hardly describe. She was my lawyer and my champion. She knew what I needed and fought for me. She got me what I needed for life, and I know that doesn't normally happen. I felt cared for throughout this entire ordeal, and for that I will be forever grateful. She was very careful with my billing, and I appreciated that. I know that fighting for some of these things costs money. but she did everything she could to help keep my costs down. Her conscientiousness not only for how she handled my case, but also minding the cost to me meant everything to me. Thank you, Andrea!

I was in an abusive relationship for years. I had been seeing a therapist because my ex had convinced me that I was the cause of all of our problems and his unhappiness. One day I finally knew I had to get out. My therapist referred me to Ms. Hastings. I know that she isn't a therapist, but she immediately calmed my anxieties about the process. I struggled to move forward because I was scared. Everything was a fight because of how abusive he is. His behavior caused more expense, but Andee and her team did everything they could to minimize the costs. To this day I am grateful for her wisdom and guidance. She made me feel strong when I was weak because she is so strong. I have moved forward with my life, and I am able not only to survive but thrive thanks to her expert assistance.

The law firm of Waggoner Hastings was such a blessing during my divorce. Not only did Amy Waggoner make my case her priority, she handled it with compassion, sensitivity, fought for what I deserved, and won my case. Thank You!
21:28 21 Oct 18
Wonderful firm! Very caring and compassionate in regards to my situation. Waggoner Hastings truly has your best interests at hand and are great to work with.
18:53 21 Oct 18
Andee Hastings guided me through one of the hardest times in my life. I did not expect my divorce and was not emotionally prepared for it. I was referred to Andee for my divorce by an attorney that I respect and trust. Andee helped me through the process with compassion, dedication, skill and professionalism. She ultimately negotiated a very favorable settlement for me, and I could not be more grateful. She and her staff were very responsive to me, and they very patiently answered all of my questions, and there were many. Her understanding of the law and ability to understand people and their situations is not to be underestimated. I hope I never go through something like this again, but if I do, I want her by my side. I have recommended her to several people looking for attorneys to represent them in their divorces.
14:44 21 Oct 18
I had been a stay at home mom with my three children for 11 years when I found out my husband wanted a divorce. I was blindsided. My youngest son has special needs. I hired Andee Hastings for my divorce and then again after it was final because my ex refused to abide by the terms of our agreement, especially where our youngest child son was concerned. She came very highly recommended, and she lived up to the recommendation. She was always professional and I was especially happy that she always innately understood my feelings and anxieties. She obtained an extremely favorable resolution for me and my children in my divorce. When I had to take my ex back to court over money after we got divorced, ANDEE HASTINGS WAS UNBELIEVABLE IN COURT. She was the ultimate professional and she gave my ex's attorneys a whole new perspective on what their client was telling them. She proved over and over again that my ex was lying on the stand. She never backed down. I had been so afraid that my ex's wealth would distract from the truth and my son would not get the help he desperately needed. Andee exposed the truth in an organized, crystal clear, and professional manner. She truly is my hero. I don't know what I would have done had she not come into our lives.
14:41 20 Oct 18
I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT WAGGONER HASTINGS... I found myself in dire need of attorneys who could jump into a messy custody battle and make things right - they did that and then some. At all times I was provided with clear explanations as to my options, the pros and cons of each, and armed with the knowledge I needed to make informed decisions. Both Amy Waggoner and Andrea Hastings worked on my matter, and they did so with passion, clear communication, and with the best interest of my child at heart. The whole team truly cared - all were friendly and professional. It was just a great experience all around. Between my experience with the firm as a whole and the result, it was worth every.single.penny.
22:23 17 Oct 18
This firm handled two situations for me that resulted in the best conclusion possible for me. I knew from the beginning that I had chosen not only the right firm, but the right lawyer. The professionalism and competence showed throughout our dealings, and I have recommended this firm to other friends and acquaintances. Thank you Amy Waggoner for all your help.
15:13 08 Jan 18
I highly recommend the team at Waggoner Hastings. They represented me during my divorce and years later for a modification of child support. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, professional and in constant contact. I have total confidence in Amy and her firm.
20:44 13 Nov 17
Waggoner Hastings was extremely personable and professional throughout my experience. I really felt they had my best interest at heart at all times. They excelled at communication and I knew where everything stood throughout the entire process. I highly recommend them and could not be more satisfied.
04:25 12 Nov 17
I used Waggoner Hastings to help me with a child custody modification and their firm was professional throughout the process. Andee was very knowledgeable and professional and helped my work through some hard issues. I would recommend them to anyone needing a family law attorney.
17:41 09 Nov 17
Andee Hastings and her legal team are friendly, efficient, professional and they truly care about their clients. Andee was on top of matters and kept me well informed throughout the process. From our first conversation I knew I made the right choice. She truly did an awesome job. I felt the fees were reasonable in spite of the difficult issues that came up in my case. I achieved exactly the results that I sought from the beginning. I highly recommend Andee and her firm!
