I am a general practitioner. Meaning, I handle most legal matters. I have support staff that have been with me for several years. I would not be able to do what I do on a daily basis without my staff. I live in Oconee County, Georgia where I run the Law Offices of Michael R. Childs, L.L.C. I am a Member of Briarwood Baptist Church. I am married and the father of two children. I graduated in 2001 from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Business Administration. After leaving UGA, I went to law school at the Appalachian School of Law in Virginia. As a private attorney, I worked with one of the best attorneys I know: Alan M. Alexander, Jr. He gave me my first job when I came to Oconee County. Under Mr. Alexander, I handled a variety of legal matters: Auto Accidents, Divorce, Wills/Probate, DUI’s, Domestic Violence, Drug Issues, etc. Working with Mr. Alexander, I handled dozens of personal injury cases with quite a bit of success and now, working on my own, I continue to have success handling personal injury matters. As a Criminal defense attorney, it is my responsibility to represent clients who have been accused of wrongdoing and ensure that justice is preserved. My clients are presumed innocent until proven guilty by the State. The State has the burden of proof to show beyond a reasonable doubt that my client committed the crime in which they are charged. I also handle Family law matters (Divorces, Adoption, Juvenile matters, etc.). Arguably, this is the most stressful area of law, but can be the most rewarding. It is a real pleasure to help good folk when they are in need, but even better, being able to help a child who has been abused or neglected is rewarding. As a private attorney, there are so many other things that have come through the door. Countless probate matters, drafting wills, setting up businesses, contract disputes, drafting contracts, real estate disputes, restoring gun rights, etc. The wonderful thing about practicing law is that each day is a little different. When I am not practicing law, I teach it. I teach legal courses for the University of North Georgia, Savannah Technical College, Athens Technical College and a few other small schools from time to time. It is very rewarding when I get to teach young people (and nontraditional students too). If I or anyone in this firm can be of assistance, do not hesitate to give us a call. The phone number for the Firm is (706) 549-4007. Thanks!
Highly Professional and Recommended Service!
My husband and I were appointed Mike Childs as our family attorney, in a very lengthy child custody case. For two years, Mr. Childs fought beside us to reassure the absolute best interest for our children. With complete professionalism, Mike did everything he said he would do, and brought my babies home! He never forgot to return a phone call, and he always made sure our thoughts and concerns were addressed properly and thoroughly. I would recommend Mr. Childs a thousand times over! He turned such an ugly situation into a beautiful happy ever after! A million thanks to you, Mike, for all your hard work!! ~Mr. And Mrs. Ryan Duvall
It has been a pleasure working w/Mike! Mike always returns my calls and emails in a timely manner. He attends meeting when requested and is usually available anytime myself or the Mayor needs to consult w/him. Both the Mayor & I look forward to a long and continued relationship w/Mike and his law office.
