With 29 years of legal experience, ATTORNEY SHELBY A. OUTLAW understands that divorce presents many changes, concerns and options. She recognizes that each family has special needs. During a divorce, her attention centers around the needs of the client during and after the divorce. Custody, child support, division of property, medical, educational and emotional support of each family member, and other family issues are considered at various stages of a divorce.

 

Although she settles most of her divorce cases through mediation & negotiation, Shelby does have considerable trial experience not only in the arena of domestic relations, but millions of dollars in jury verdicts in general civil litigation. Shelby does not adhere to the “one size fits all” approach. Her services are tailored specifically to provide her clients and their families with personalized cost-effective legal services. She states that when the family is involved, no issue should stand alone. Her general practice consists of general civil litigation, wills, trusts & estates, estate planning & litigation, real estate litigation and appellate practice.

The threat of the Enterovirus D68 is affecting our children, especially those with asthma. The doctors & staff at the CENTER FOR ALLERGY AND ASTHMA OF GEORGIA (CA&A) provide complete allergy and asthma consultations, treatment & management for adults and children. Drs. Eugene Hurwitz, John Vickery & William Boleman are Board Certified Allergists and their proactive approach includes individualized treatment. Children with asthma may be particularly susceptible to more severe enterovirus infections so the Center’s doctors advise parents to make a visit to their office to be sure their child’s asthma is well controlled this fall and winter. If children get asthma flares, they can be seen at the Center on the day they call and will be monitored closely in an effort to reduce the severity of the illness.

 

Signs that you or your child might need to see CA&A can include rashes, skin irritations, reoccurring sinus infections, persistent runny nose or congestion, or a chronic cough or wheeze. The doctors have had much success in the non-surgical treatment of sinusitis, as well as preventive care for allergies and asthma. Offices in Smyrna, Villa Rica, Peachtree City, Douglasville, Carrollton, Hiram & Newnan.

Attorney Ashley L. Schiavone

Legal

Criminal / DUI • Divorce • Personal Injury

ATTORNEY ASHLEY L. SCHIAVONE concentrates primarily in criminal defense, with a strong emphasis on the trial phase of legal advocacy. She knows that being charged with any criminal offense is a frightening experience. Defendants need to know their rights under the law and act to protect them immediately – before memories fade, evidence is lost or witnesses disappear. She states, “Don’t wait to get help from a lawyer”. The longer your attorney has before trial, the better and stronger your defense can be.

 

As a trial lawyer, Ashley’s philosophy is grounded in the strong belief that her clients should be fully informed about every aspect of their case as the case progresses. Areas of interest include homicide & all violent crimes, DUI & traffic violations, drug crimes, white-collar crimes, armed robbery & burglary, domestic violence & assault and probation & parole violations. Divorce & family law and personal injury round out her practice. Ashley previously worked at a local large DUI practice before going off on her own. For your initial consultation there is no charge.
