Harmon Caldwell has repeatedly been recognized as one of the finest lawyers in Georgia. Over the past 44 years, he has represented an incredible number of clients from Georgia’s wealthiest and most recognizable families in both divorce and estate and trust litigation matters. Many of his cases have received national recognition because they were “firsts,” either because of the parties involved or the size of the settlement or jury award.

Combining a detailed knowledge of the law, a creative approach to every case and an innate ability to communicate with clients, judges and juries, Harmon and his team at Caldwell, Carlson, Elliott & DeLoach, LLP, have the experience to achieve the best possible result for every client.

Harmon strongly believes in resolving disputes on a reasonable basis. However, many times, particularly in wealthy families, the other side does not want to be reasonable. In those cases, it is important to have a fierce advocate who the opposition knows will not hesitate to try the case if it becomes necessary. Harmon has tried a staggering 200 civil jury trials, most of which have been decided in his client’s favor.

Because of his reputation, he is often called upon to take cases outside metro Atlanta. He has handled cases in Albany, Augusta, Brunswick, Macon, Dalton, Gainesville, Carrollton, Griffin, Blue Ridge and numerous other areas.

Always entertaining with many stories about the cases he has tried, he speaks frequently to attorneys, accountants and lay people about various aspects of his practice.

The majority of his clients come from the recommendations of past clients. For the families of Martin Luther King Jr. and dozens of other notable Atlanta residents, Harmon Caldwell has been the go-to lawyer for divorce and estate disputes.
