As a family law attorney at The Halberg Law Firm, Blake D. Halberg is committed to providing top-notch services to his clients in Atlanta and throughout Georgia. For over three decades, he has been focusing his practice on handling cases that involve family law, divorce, fathers’ rights, child custody, property division, and civil and business disputes and litigation.

Mr. Halberg is known for his gender-neutral approach to creating flexible parenting plans that ultimately benefit everyone involved. He offers alternative dispute resolution options such as negotiation and mediation to help his clients avoid lengthy and costly divorce litigation. He has taken on several cases on a pro bono basis as part of his commitment to the community.

Upon receiving his undergraduate degree in criminal justice from Georgia State University in 1978, Mr. Halberg graduated from Woodrow Wilson College of Law in 1985, where he was one of the top 10% of his class. During his time as a member of the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism, he taught first-year law students at both Emory University School of Law and Georgia State University School of Law. He acted as a mock trial judge in all local trial courts.

He has held various positions in legal organizations such as Family Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association, Family Law Section of the Cobb County Bar Association, Northside Youth Organization, Georgia Council on Child Abuse, Inc., The Lovett School, Mount Paran-Northside Citizens Association and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation..
