Areas of Practice

"Bree was a true God send for me during this trying time in my life. She was my backbone when I was just a shell of a person... She was very patient with me and organized with all of the information we gathered. She always worked for my best interest and saw that she never backs down to a bully. Bree became such a great inspiration and gave me strength and guidance during one of the worst times of my life."

In the midst of the difficult and complex emotions which overwhelm those going through divorce, issues of property and debt division, child custody and visitation, alimony, taxation must also be addressed.  Ms. Sullivan's goal in every divorce case is to bring the client through the roller coaster of emotions to reach a result which will allow the client to go forward from divorce with confidence and security.       


Personal Injury

The trauma that comes with an accident can be severe, especially when you’ve been put in harm’s way as the result of another’s negligence.

The Sullivan Firm legal team is committed to advocating relentlessly on behalf of injury victims dealing with the aftermath of an auto accident, on-the-job injury, product liability, or any other harmful incident that occurred through no fault of their own.


The Sullivan Firm is ready to pursue the justice and maximum compensation you deserve. We serve clients throughout South Georgia!


Call (229) 226-1940 to discuss the next steps of your case.


Child Custody

Perhaps the most stressful kind of legal dispute involves child custody.  Whether you are one seeking a change in custody for the best interest of your child(ren) or defending an action of this kind which has been filed against you, Ms. Sullivan is well equipped to be your--and the child(ren)'s--advocate, giving you the stellar representation which is so very crucial when the stakes are at their highest.    


Domestic Violence Protective Orders

When your physical safety is at stake, you need an attorney who will act quickly to get you the protection you need.  The law provides avenues for restraining abusers from having any contact with family violence victims and their minor children.  If you or someone you know is enduring physical abuse, we can help.   


Prenuptial Agreements

If you are contemplating marriage and wish to establish each spouse's property rights and other expectations should the marriage ever end, we prepare prenuptial agreements tailored to your precise needs. 


Grandparent Rights

When a grandchild is at risk and grandparent intervention is necessary, you need a lawyer who understands the intricacies of this area of the law. We have been helping grandparents and other nonparent custodians obtain legal custody of children for more than a decade, with solid results.   When faced with an issue of this kind, call us first.


Child Support & Alimony

 In 2007, a new Child Support Calculator was established by Georgia lawmakers as the required form for calculating child support in Georgia.  This overhauled Georgia child support law contains many provisions which, if skillfully used, can greatly benefit children and their custodial parents.  The converse is also true; there are nuances in the guidelines which can provide justified relief to those hardworking noncustodial parents who pay child support.  If you are interested in exploring a child support modification on the basis of changed financial or other circumstances since the entry of a previous child support Order, look no further than The Sullivan Firm.   Moreover, if you are a noncustodial parent who has seen your driver's license suspended, passport revoked, tax refunds intercepted, wages garnished, or bank account drained by the Department of Child Support Services, call us for a consultation to discuss your rights. 


Wrongful Death

Helping Families Who Have Lost Loved Ones Due to Negligence


The sudden loss of a loved one is a tragic and devastating experience. The grief following such a tremendous loss may be one of the most painful events in your life.  We always treat our clients and their families with the highest degree of compassion and empathy. 

We Have a Proven Record of Results.   Over the years, the Sullivan Firm has secured millions of dollars in settlements on behalf of our wrongful death clients. 


Legitimation & Parental Rights

Many people incorrectly believe that acknowledging paternity on hospital forms is enough to give a father legal rights to his child.  If you are a father who has never filed a legal action for legitimation, you have no rights to visit with your child, and your child is not legally permitted to inherit from your estate should you die.   We represent parents in paternity and legitimation actions.



The adoption of a child, whether through infant adoption, stepparent adoption, or other third-party adoption ranks among the most momentous events of an adopting parent's life.  You can trust us to assist you in the adoption process.
