  • “April handled my case very quickly and professionally when I needed an attorney quickly. No detail was missed; she was extremely thorough. However, what really caught my eye and appreciation was her caring, ethical attitude. Considering everyone’s outcome in the legal scenario was important to her, not just financial gain. I was highly impressed and will certainly use her again in the future should the need arise.”

  • Let me begin by saying I only had the pleasure of working with April for a few weeks but I absolutely do not know what I would have done with out her. You will not only get a knowledgeable and exceptionally dedicated person, you will get true compassion for whatever you might be going through at the time. There was never a time when I left a message or wrote an email that I had to wait more than ten minutes for a response no matter what time of day or night it was. Even if your emotions get the best of you she truly understands and will always have such patience and understanding. During one of the hardest times of my life I never felt like I was talking to a lawyer, I felt like I was talking to a friend. That is how comfortable she makes you feel with her. I have been honored to work with her during her earlier years as a lawyer because I have no doubt in my mind that she will soon be one of the best lawyers in the Atlanta area. Thank you April for all you have done for me.”

    Thank you April

  • “First off, I want to start this review off by saying that April Stancliff was such a pleasant person to work with. I am so blessed that I got to work with this amazing human being. April was extremely professional when she spoke with me, but she also added a personal tone behind her words that made me feel safe and at home like talking to a friend.

    This woman is completely dedicated to the work that she does and she will not stand down while someone tries to do the wrong thing. She showed so much heartfelt desire to have true justice served. This made the time spent with her very worthwhile because I knew that my case was going to be won. Not only because she is amazing at what she does, but mainly for the reason that her heart was in the right place the entire time she helped me.

    In my case in particular, I was up against a lot and really did not see anything in the future for me but jail time. I had previous charges and jail time against me for the same exact thing that I was looking to fight in court. One of my charges was a misdemeanor. On the other hand, my other charge could have been pressed as a felony, depending on the cost of damages done. I was looking at up to two years in confinement.

    My case was dropped. With those charges you might think that justice was not served, but there is more to the story. I was framed for criminal damage and the same “victim” self harmed themselves and blamed me. No one believed that I was innocent.  As soon as I spoke with her, she started on my case. I was freaking out because with my previous charges, I looked guilty. April did everything in her power to prove my innocence.

    I know that April must have put in long hours to make sure that the true victim, being me, was not behind bars under faulty accusations. She made countless phone calls, text messages, and emails to keep me constantly up to date on my case. As soon as anything came up, good or bad, April made sure that I knew.

    We were both told at the same time that my case had been dropped. The number one reason that it was, was because April did a lot of background and figured out the “victim” was not as good as a person as he had led everyone to believe. She called countless people, got all the documents she needed, had me save phone recordings, etc….

    This woman knows how to do her job and she knows how to do it well. She worked diligently on my case every single day: That shows workmanship. She spoke with me as often and with as much help as possible: That shows communication. Most importantly, April cried tears of joy with me when everyone found out that I was innocent: That shows her heart. This is someone that you want on your side, because I would hate to know I had to fight her on a case.

    Thanks April for everything.”

  • “It took me a couple months to truly wrap my head around how an ex of mine could seek to not only disparage and defame me, but to go so far as to seek to destroy my life as I knew it. The devil, of course, is in the details which I can’t mention here… but suffice it to say I was caught completely off guard, and after having spent years helping to support this other half and his lifestyle I was in a financially sensitive position. What resulted was truly unnecessary litigation following the slow and painful end of an abusive relationship – only further evidence of the character of this person I once gave my all to.

    In my case April went above and beyond the call of duty as my attorney. Even now I recall early morning and late night conversations about the difficulties of the case, the issues with how charges were framed, and the myriad things I could do to better prepare us both for our day in court. As my stresses weighed me down she educated me on the situation, its protocol, and took the time to lift my spirits. She empathized with my frustration and anger and helped me to not only make the best of the situation, but to harness these emotions in order to leave no stone unturned.

    It took many long hours scouring emails and texts, pulling up financial records, and contacting multiple organizations and businesses to properly defend our case. I wasn’t alone during this time, however, because April was with me every step of the way, and helped to guide my actions to focus my efforts and work as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    The end result: WE WON. Not against one, but TWO charges. BOTH of which were filed due to the horrifying actions and malicious intentions of a spiteful ex.

    April is an ethical, educated, informed, and empathetic legal professional whose prowess is exceeded only by her intention to serve her clients. Save for her brief moments out of the office to sleep I fear she may in fact work at all hours of the day, throughout the week. I cannot adequately thank her for all she has done for me, save for pour my heart into this review.

    April, you are amazing. Thank you, again.”

  • “I was very pleased with April as my attorney. This was my first time having an attorney, and I was very apprehensive. She was very kind in explaining details to me, and extremely patient when I didn’t understand, explaining what was going on again. She worked with me for 10 months, and we are finishing up my case this week. I felt safe with her, and never felt lied to, or put off.

    I was very thankful for that. Knowing how things turned out, I believe if I had to do it over again, I would breathe a little easier through the process. She was great, and compassionate about my situation, and was encouraging to me through the process.

    I would most definitely recommend her to anyone else that needs honest and caring attorneys, who, fight for you, and made the process as easy as possible while going through it!”

    First Experience with a Lawyer, and thankful, I had a great attorney to depend on.

  • “Divorce is one of the most difficult and emotionally draining experiences in life but I was truly blessed to have April on my side during it all. Even my ex-husband said that I had a really good attorney. I was married over 20 years and my spouse was a member of the military which added an additional layer to the normal factors that arise in divorce. To further complicate matters I was in the middle of a federal disability claim when the divorce happened. To say my case was complicated seems like an understatement.

    However, April was a true pro throughout it all. She was knowledgeable about not only GA state law but the military laws involved and the disability component as it related to my divorce. I had a different disability attorney. April assisted me with obtaining a temporary court order when my ex stopped paying me which was critical as the divorce process took almost a year to complete. She explained everything she was doing and why it was important even necessary in some instances to do things a specific way. She was understanding of my situation and cared about my feelings enough to truly listen to what issues where important to me. I knew that if she was advising me to do something I could trust her judgment. And trust is so important when your future is literally dependant on the outcome of a case. You want April in your corner at a time like that and I was very fortunate to have her.

    Not only did she successfully argue my case so that I was awarded lifetime medical coverage which my ex was trying to block me from she also got me the full alimony I was seeking, child support and a large portion of my legal fees paid by my ex husband. There was more that she was able to get awarded but lets just say my ex never had a chance with April at the wheel. She is more than just your lawyer she is your champion and when you are already in a stressful situation as it is you need someone like that to fight for you. I highly recommend April. Her level of dedication and knowledge of the law is exceptional. I will never be able to thank her enough for all that she has done for me and my kids.”

  • “I hired April for a custody dispute after being referred to her through a mutual friend. There is not another attorney anywhere that could have done a fine a job as she did with my case.

    From the moment my case began, April dived in headfirst. She stayed in constant contact with me, keeping me informed of everything, and always willing to quickly answer any questions I constantly had about my case.

    ​In the courtroom, she is a spitfire, utterly brilliant. She is quick witted, sharp, and knows her stuff! She refuses to back down, stands her ground on what is right, and will fight for what is important to you. I had 100% confidence in her and her abilities, and she proved me right after her performance in court. I am so grateful to have hired such a professional attorney who cared so much about and my case. She truly is one of a kind.”

  • “April is an attorney with a heart. After the first time speaking with April, I knew I had to hire her to represent me. She was very understanding and compassionate but most of all she knows the law. Her confidence gave me peace of mind. She was very upfront with what she needed and what to expect going forward in the case and she was 100% correct in the outcome. April is not one of those attorneys that runs up fees at every opportunity. If I were in need of an attorney in the future there is no doubt April Stancliff will be my first call. I have nothing but respect for April, she is truly a blessing.”

    After the consultation, I knew this was an attorney who really cares about people.

  • “I was devastated by my divorce, I had no knowledge of the process nor was i in the state of mind to make any decisions regarding the divorce. April was knowledgeable and caring. She made sure I was informed in detail on the process. She knows the law. At one point in the mediation the mediator and the opposing Atty challenged her knowledge on alimony, they were positive they were right, April stood her ground and after all was said and done, April was right, and I was impressed with her confidence in her knowledge. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you April for caring.”

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You April
