About This Firm

We are the Alabama Family Law Group (AFLG) - bringing a focus on our clients and their legal problems, we concentrate on providing passionate and thoughtful representation to men and women throughout Alabama who are experiencing the pain and difficulty of divorce. The Alabama Family Law Group was founded by lead attorney, Charlotte Christian in 2000; our pledge is to ensure that all clients with whom we work receive the personal attention they deserve, the legal support they require and the best possible outcomes we can obtain for them. Charlotte and her team of dedicated, hardworking, and experienced team members know that the goal for individuals who are addressing most family law matters is restoring their lives and moving on to brighter futures. AFLG's role is to assist them in reaching that goal.

The Knowledge to Guide You through Difficult Times

No one gets married expecting to face divorce in the future. However, sometimes the emotional struggles your spouse and you face become overwhelming-the family difficulties may be devastating-the stress may be affecting you at home and at work. The Alabama Family Law Group has represented hundreds of clients since our founding, many who have found themselves in situations just like yours. That being said, we know that each client is a unique person with a unique situation; therefore, our team strives to know you on a personal level to learn what motivates you and how we can best work with you and for you.

Whether they are inside or outside of the courtroom, Alabamians know that they can turn to AFLG for strong strategic planning, vigorous defense and representation of clients' rights and positions, Our concentration and focus are on what is best for our clients and their families. We will walk you through the options in both contested and uncontested divorces and the options for custody, child support, property division and spousal support. Our team has modified judgments and assisted in changing visitation rules. We also assist our troops serving at home and abroad who are going through the difficult process concerning family law matters-as we do for all our clients.

Planning for Your Future Just Got Easier

At AFLG, we really do understand that you are dealing with a life-changing decision when your spouse and you decide that you can no longer remain married. Lead attorney, Charlotte Christian, works with you to guide you through the emotional toll of divorce and custody issues. Our team outlines your options and discusses the opportunities that can arise-reconciliation and counseling, judgments from the court or negotiations of settlement agreements that let couples part on their own terms. Making a decision is the first step. With our help, you can be confident that your life can resume, and you can enjoy the life style that once made you happy.

Remember, you are more than data for a statistical study; therefore, your situation should not be processed from a legal "formbook." Your case should be addressed uniquely and customized to your own set of circumstances. The most important strategy you can employ is to decide to move forward. The Alabama Family Law Group recommends two important steps to proceed with your process:

1. Put strategies in place to protect yourself IMMEDIATELY.

2. Retain a Huntsville, Athens or Decatur, Alabama, attorney to represent your interests and meet your needs.

We understand that you're dealing with your husband or wife about a possible separation or divorce can be a terribly devastating experience. One aspect of this experience about which we can assist you is by our providing confidential options and alternatives. We can aid you in employing special arrangements to possibly save your marriage, or we can discuss the alternatives with you and begin the process of strategy building for the next steps.

Choose your law firm carefully!

Choosing the law firm to represent you during a critical life-changing time is a major decision.

While these choices and resolutions may sound frightening, they represent fundamental facts and unfortunate realities.

When you consider hiring a law firm, your key main question to potential firms should be "why should I choose your law firm to represent me?" We answer this question! Divorce situations are unique, and we will want to discuss your specific situation in person to establish that we are the best firm to represent you.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
