An Aggressive and Effective Commerce Family Law Attorney

I am attorney John Terry Brown. For more than 30 years, I have fought for the interests of family law clients in Commerce and throughout Northeast Georgia. If you are going through a divorce, a child custody or child support proceeding, or seek a change to an existing family law agreement, I can defend your interests both in and out of court.

Since 1992, I have focused on family law. I have experience and knowledge in a wide range of family law proceedings — from child custody and child support, to divorce, to obtaining post-decree modifications. I put that knowledge to work for my clients, and will aggressively protect your interests.
