“Judgments affirmed. All the Justices concur.” That was the decision of all of the Georgia Supreme Court Justices on September 23, 2013 following oral arguments presented before them in June. Leslie represented the Appellee at the trial level in a petition to modify the terms of his original divorce decree. He was seeking sole legal custody of two minor children and an increase in child support. After a multi-day final trial, the trial court granted him sole legal custody, an increase in child support, and attorney’s fees from the other side. The opposing party appealed the trial court’s ruling and after oral arguments, the Supreme Court affirmed all aspects of the trial court’s decision.
This opinion by the highest court in our state is a tremendous affirmation of Leslie O’Neal’s commitment to serving her clients. We are proud of Leslie’s continued success in the Georgia Supreme Court and congratulate her on another victory in this arena!
