Hiring Sean was the best thing I did for my divorce. He returned my initial call promptly and saw me on a Sunday morning, which is unheard of with other attorneys. He really cares about his clients and he and his staff are there for you every step of the way during a tough time like this. He is honest when he needs to be, making you aware of every possible scenerio. I would definitely recommend Sean Whitworth to anyone having to go through a divorce.

Professional from start to finish
Very personable and professional. Would recommend him highly.
First and foremost, I would like to thank Mr. Whitworth for his hardwork and commitment with my case. I've had custody of my son since he was 4 years old. In 2015, at the age of 8, his biological mom decided she was ready to be a mother and took him away. Not knowing my rights, I was limited with what I could and couldn't do. I reached out to Mr. Whitworth, explained my story with all details. He then told me that I have a great case and that with time, we would get my son back. After the first hearing, my son was able to return home for a temporary order. During this time, Mr. Whitworth continued to work on my case so we would be prepared for the final hearing. After a long year, the final hearing was scheduled. Mr. Whitworth presented all of the documents and preparation to the opposing attorney. They quickly conceded and agreed to making the temporary order a permanent order. I appreciate everything he did for me during that year and a half period. He remained in contact with me through out the entire process. He walked me through how everything would look and gave me tremendous confidence in him and the system. Once again I would like to say thank you to Mr. Sean Whitworth. I don't know where me and my family would be without you. Thanks again!!!

The process was very simple and Sean took care of everything for me.
Sean Whitworth, the well worth it attorney at law! 😊
Sean is one amazing attorney. He is a shark in the courtroom, the opposing side will not know what hit them. You will not regret hiring Sean at all, as his rate are very flexible. All worries went away after the first initial meeting and the stress of going to court was minimal. I am grateful to have worked with Sean on my case. With all of the drama and cockiness from my ex, Sean told me that we would be the ones with the last laugh and boy did we! Thanks Sean!
Sean represented me in a custody battle for my daughter. My daughter's mother had full custody and I was paying child support. We gathered very good eye witness accounts and evidence that my daughter was in danger while in her mothers care. Sean expeditiously set a court date. At the very first court appearance I was given physical custody of my daughter and her mother was only to see her under supervised visitation. Every case is different and with mine the evidence and witnesses played a big part in our success. However, Sean's knowledge and practical use of the law with authority and assertiveness gave us the edge we needed to have our case heard, despite the other attorneys efforts to have a continuance. The way Sean laid out the case forced the other Attorney to yield to our demands. That initial victory set the stage for me to win full custody of my daughter and ensure her safety and well being. Words cannot express my gratitude. Sean is one of the greatest attorneys I have ever met. You want Sean Whitworth on your side.

Family Law Attorney
I found Sean through Thumbtack and after the initial interview knew I would be well represented. Sean did an exceptional job guiding me through the ups and downs of my recent divorce. Not only did he provide excellent legal counsel, he was a source of great emotional support as well. Sean and his staff kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend the services of Sean Whitworth.
It was one year after my child custody mediation that I met with Sean for a consultation.
My previous representation from another lawyer had not only left me with minimal rights to my daughter, it left me feeling like there was absolutely nothing that I could do as a father in a system that generally favors mothers.. I presumed that achieving primary custody was nothing more than a daydream at best and I really believed that I was going to have to do my best with the visitation I had received & the joint legal custody I had settled for.
I had no say in raising my daughter because my ex will do everything she can to spite me, however, it is only my daughter that suffers the consequences of my ex's actions.
I was sure that there was nothing I could do for my daughter.. you can imagine how I felt and lived those days.
During our initial consultation, Sean heard me out & saw my situation for what it was.. For the first time since becoming a father, I heard someone say to me "You have a strong enough case to change things and possibly get custody of your daughter."
I left Sean's office that afternoon feeling understood. He also gave me the assurance that I had been doing the right things for my daughter in the meantime, which I found a great deal of new found confidence in because after years of enduring the 'turn the other cheek' philosophy.. I had my head down purely out of habit and I had just come to accept that things were going to maintain this way.
I knew within the first moments of meeting Sean that he would represent me with a very strong and fluid knowledge of the law.
He is both professional & compassionate and he never ever failed to keep what was in the best interests of my little girl at the forefront of our uphill charge.
We filed our petition for modification in Cobb County and began the process of waiting on a court date.
In that time, we found the need to have a Guardian Ad Litem be involved, which had been mentioned to me during our first meeting, so this was no surprise.
Sean spent countless amounts of time (during the year it took us to get into court) taking my emails, phone calls, and scheduling face time for office visits so we could update each other on the little things as well as the big things. He is always very personable and genuine.. even on our most stressful days, he always reminded me to "keep your head up and just keep doing what you're doing." - When you're nose deep in self employment and a legal battle regarding the most important element of your life, you really need to hear that from someone.
Through the thick and thin of it, keeping in close contact with me, my fiancé, the guardian, with the courts, and on the biggest day of my life, Sean truly went above and beyond seeing us all the way through to the decision of the change in custody that we were awarded.
I now have primary physical custody of my daughter. As we stood out in the atrium of the Mariatta courthouse, Sean looked at me and said "You get to raise your little girl!"... How do you thank someone for that??
Sean did everything he said he would do for us, which is few and far between in my experience with someone as full tilt busy as Sean is.
If I ever need representation of any kind in the future, I will most certainly hire Sean Whitworth.. and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance or representation.
Sean won me custody of my children and changed my life. He is the best lawyer I've ever had and I can't thank him enough
Sean Whitworth provided details of how he would represent me in court. He encouraged me on days when things were getting to me from the issues. He was a powerhouse in the court room. Great job Attorney Whitworth.
Mr. Whitworth treated me and my case with the most respect and dignity from the first phone call. He gave me great advice and free consultation over the phone even when he did not know if I would retain him or not. I am from another State and he took a chance with me and his fees and still gave me the most respect and treated my case with the same passion and dignity as if I were paying him a million dollars. Today, thanks to Mr. Whitworth I am the legal guardian of my Grand daughter who was in Foster Care in Cobb County for four long years and who the State had up for adoption. She was returned to us five days before her sixth birthday in December 2015. Thanks to you after fours years we were able to celebrate her birthday and Christmas. You gave us the best Christmas present any family could ever hope for, words are not enough to say "thank you" Mr. Whitworth. Some nights I watched her as she sleeps and shudder at the thought of what could have happen if it weren't for you. It all seems so unreal and I can't believe it's finally over. I thank you, I highly recommend you and I will forever be grateful to you.
P.S. I wish there were more stars that I could give you.
Your out of State Client
Mr. Whitworth was my attorney defending me in a grandparent visitation case. I was very nervous because there were outrageous claims being made against me but the moment Sean got in front of the court he completely had control of the case, witnesses and opposing attorney. He was able to convey my concerns to the judge, defend me against all false accusations and it was very apparent that the knew the last thourghly. The outcome of my case far exceeded what I hoped for. If I would have had any other lawyer I would be in a very bad position right now. Amazing lawyer!

Sean has been there for me throughout my divorce no matter how personal or rough things got with my ex-husband. And trust me, I had lots of issues during this terrible fiasco, but, Sean took care of everything!! He's a wonderful compassionate individual......very unlike most money-hungry attorneys I've know in the past.
He's great; his legal assistant is wonderful and very helpful!! I have and would recommend him to everyone!!!

I couldn't have asked for a better representative for my divorce. Sean Whitworth is a knowledgeable attorney who has a thorough understanding of the law and the judicial system. I never once felt alone in my fight. Sean made every effort he could to help me through this difficult process. He gave me best and worst case scenarios and fought hard to get me the best deal possible. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone who is going through the pain of divorce.
