Attorney Profile

Ms. Millard's practice focuses solely on family law matters, including divorce, custody modification, child support modification, legitimation, paternity, and adoption.  She represents all types of clients from uncontested divorces with no marital property or children to multi-million dollar divorces with high conflict custody issues.  She has handled cases involving international custody issues, drug abuse restrictions, parental alienation cases as well as unique custody arrangements to account for unconventional job schedules.  

Ms. Millard is skilled at dividing marital estates that include deferred compensation, stock options, complicated real estate ownership, shares of both public and private businesses as well as large amounts of unsecured debt.  She stays up to date with the changing laws regarding child support and alimony and has structured agreements and obtained orders allowing for the best use of the advantages in those laws for her clients.

Ms. Millard prides herself on her ability to look after the best interests of the children involved in the litigation and the rights of her clients.  She does this by responding timely, listening to her clients fears and concerns and crafting agreements and orders that address those concerns and protect her client’s rights going forward. 

Her clients praise Ms. Millard’s attention to detail, level of service and knowledge of the law.  Her reviews commend her collaborative solutions despite her aggressive and outside the box approach.  Ms. Millard’s clients talk about her level of preparation for hearings and mediation as well as ensuring the client was prepared and aware of each step of the process.  Ms. Millard takes great care in helping her clients navigate what is likely one of the most stressful periods of their lives.

Ms. Millard graduated from Georgia State College of Law in 2004 and has successfully managed her own practice since 2007.  She enjoys traveling, being on the water and spending time with her kids and husband.  Her personal experience with divorce as a child shapes her experience and perspective on divorces.  Additionally, as a mother of a special needs child, she is aware of the unique issues, expenses and concerns relating to special needs children.
