    “Divorce can be one of the most traumatizing and stressful experiences especially when children are involved. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Balbo who was very easy to communicate with and always gave sound advice. I recall emailing him during an escalating situation on a Sunday afternoon and was most shocked to get a reply! Not sure how many clients can say that about their legal representative. I will admit, handling many cases and being so busy I was a little nervous going into the court room but Mr. Balbo showed up and showed out as they say and needless to say, I walked out on the winning side. I did have issues with the front desk paralegal during my time of service but in my recent contact with the office I see there is a much more pleasant paralegal on staff who was very friendly when taking my call. I highly recommend Balbo & Gregg and to anyone new to dealing with legal stuff, understand patience is needed as court stuff can take time but know this team has your back. Thank you and great work!”

  • His hard work and dedication for us and for our children paid off.

    “AJ Balbo took care of our crazy custody case that lasted for 4 years. He was very professional and represented us very well. Our case was difficult and a monkey wrench was always thrown into the mix. His hard work and dedication for us and for our children paid off. He won our case and 4 years later, our children are happy and life is good. We highly recommend Balbo & Gregg.”

  • I could not of asked for a better lawyer.

    “Mr. Balbo did a fantastic job, and I could not of asked for a better lawyer. He was successful in getting two of my criminal charges dismissed, which resulted in a much lesser charge. He was always prompt with responding to my questions/ concerns. He always made sure I understood exactly what was going on in my case. Also, he has a wealth of knowledge in what he does, and lead me in the right direction with what I had to do as a client to achieve success in my case. I hands down recommend Mr. Balbo, and will forever use him as my personal lawyer in the future.”

  • Summary Court Martial

    “A.J. Balbo represented me in a summary court martial contesting five charges. After consultation with an active JAG officer I met with A.J., and after consultation knew he would be the best representation out there for this case. The defense case presented was outstanding after three days of witness testimony. A.J. was great to work with, understanding, and knew military law better than anyone in the courtroom. Post trial, without request, A.J. went ahead and submitted a request for clemency on my behalf which was granted. This enabled me to keep some of my rank and prevent from a major career set back. I would absolutely retain A.J. again if needed, and would highly recommend him, especially for military justice.”

  • I have been satisfied with the services that I received through the practice.

    “I have been satisfied with the services that I received through the practice, especially those of DJ. She was given my case mid-way through the process and was incredibly helpful in ensuring that my calls are received, questions were answered, and even now after the divorce has been finalized she forwards along information when requested. Thank you!”

  • Best Attorney Ever

    “Five attorneys later and the urge to give up, I was given the name Mr. Balbo. I am a soldier who was going through a divorce and fighting for custody of my daughter while down range. Mr. Balbo was highly recommended to me based on his professional experience handling and winning such cases. I first called Mr. Balbo while I was down range. When I first arrived stateside and met Mr. Balbo, I recall that he had already done an assessment of my case, he gave me his plan of action, answered all my questions, helped me come to possible solutions and was ready for all the ‘what if’ situations. His tactics and plans to help me not only to understand the process I was about to face, but also in helping things come out in my favor goes without me saying just superb! I hired Mr. Balbo to support me during my divorce and custody battle. His personality and style was very approachable and professional. He did not hesitate in telling me things that I did not want to hear, yet helped me to understand what will prepared me for my day in court. His honesty and cooperation with me and my timeline was great. He was very patient and helpful in helping me gather all the documentation I needed to help things run smooth. Mr. Balbo kept me informed on the process and status of my case and I never felt as though he was not interested in what I had to say or what I was aiming to achieve. He was very knowledge of my case and it showed during court. I could tell he took the time to really study all that was going on. He is truly a man of character who had great integrity and respect for me and my daughter. I will recommend Mr. Balbo to anyone who may be facing such ordeal as I was. To this day, as I am able to watch my daughter grow up in my care, I can’t help but to Thank God for Mr. Balbo, Hands down, you are by far the best attorney. You are a God send to me and my daughter as we were able to pick up the broken pieces and put our lives back together again. Because of you and your dedication to my family and my career, I still serve and do so proudly! Thank you!!!”

    Stephanie

  • Very easy to talk to.

    “I had hired another attorney for a DUI case almost 11 months ago the case got postponed 5 times and was told it would get postponed once again a month before the court date. I couldn't take it anymore so I called Mr. Balbo. I hired him to finish the case and he got the case done and closed in 3 weeks. The other attorney couldn't get it done in 11 months. He is very easy to talk to and you actually get to talk to him personally, not just secretaries relaying messages back and forth like the other attorney I had.”

    Randy Frank

  • Very professional and looking out for my best interests.

    “DJ from the Hinesville office was amazing and answered any questions I had on my divorce. I can't say enough about Mr Gregg and DJ being very professional and looking out for my best interests.”

    Eric Mayville

  • I am so grateful for getting the opportunity to meet with him and would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

    “Due to my case being possibly contested with the defendant in middle GA I was unable to hire AJ Balbo as my attorney for my divorce/child custody case. However, he was a wonderful attorney and I would have hired him in a heartbeat! He was very upfront about me with my case. Very knowledgeable and understanding. I feel like he could have won my case and got everything my kids and I needed. Despite knowing from the beginning that I would probably not be able to use him as my lawyer he still took the time to go through my case with me and give me tons of information and tips I needed to be successful. I am so grateful for getting the opportunity to meet with him and would absolutely recommend him to anyone!”

  • Awesome lawyer

    “Mr. Balbo gave me expert advice and helped me resolve a serious legal matter. I highly recommend him. He was able to work with me via email and phone and was great at responding to my questions quickly.”

    Paul

  • They were reasonably priced, and very attentive to my needs.

    “Chet, Gregg and Margie, his paralegal, handled a child custody issue for me recently. They were reasonably priced, and very attentive to my needs. I am biased in their favor because we won my case, but even during the proceedings, I felt that Chet was in full control of the situation and was representing my position fairly and effectively. Child custody, and pretty much every other reason one ends up in court, is a painful topic, but if I have cause to go to court again in the Savannah/Richmond Hill area, Chet Gregg will be my lawyer.”

    Patrick H.

  • Great Attorney

    “We hired Attorney Balbo for a legal matter we had involving real estate. He worked relentlessly and did work above and beyond the retainer we paid him we feel. Our matter was resolved favorably and we will use him again in the future and would recommend him to anyone needing great legal representation for a reasonable price.”

    Governors Management

  • Fantastic help and service.

    “Mr. Balbo went above and beyond helping me resolve issues and citations from an over zealous National Wildlife Officer. The Officer would not return his calls or emails and Mr. Balbo had to have the U.S. Attorneys office establish contact and help us resolve my issue. Well worth his price. I give my highest recommendation.”

    “After many phone calls and a few consultations with other law offices, I sought help from Balbo and Gregg. I had prepared a list full of questions and Mr. Balbo answered each and every one of them. I called his office thinking I needed to pursue one legal avenue and he explained a different, more practical strategy and helped me understand why. I left with peace of mind and a weight lifted off of my shoulders. Knowledgeable, professional, experienced. If I have any issues in the future, this is the law office I trust.”

  • Absolutely loved working with them!

    “Worked with the Hinesville located and all I can say is THANK YOU! I originally did a uncontested divorced, but it sadly turned into a contested. DJ and Nicki helped me threw all of it! There was several times I would call freaking out and DJ would always reassure me not to worry. And the day court came it went great! Poor Nicki had to go back and forth with his lawyer, but finally got resolved. Absolutely loved working with them! Very professional!! Highly recommended without a doubt!”

  • Outstanding Attorney

    “AJ Balbo represented me in a DUI case and obtained a reduced sentence that would otherwise resulted in a career ending conviction. He is a consummate professional focused on defending the rights of the accused. I am forever grateful for the legal defense he provided me in court. Thanks AJ!”

    Anthony

  • Where he completely overwhelmed the government lawyers with his knowledge, demeanor and experience.

    “I found Balbo & Gregg online after meeting with another military defense lawyer in the area A.J. Balbo's resume impressed me, particularly his experience as a command JAG on active duty with the 3rd ID at Fort Stewart. Mr. Balbo was attentive to my case. I was facing a wrongful administrative separation action from the Army Reserve based on alleged misconduct. Mr. Bablo helped me with a strong rebuttal to the letter of reprimand, and then the case went before a board of three colonels, where he completely overwhelmed the government lawyers with his knowledge, demeanor and experience. We won our case after a two-day proceeding, and I was retained saving me thousands in lost income and preserving retirement at my current rank. If you are in trouble in any way, do yourself a favor and call Mr. Balbo.”

  • My overall experience with the entire Balbo and Gregg staff was excellent.

    “My overall experience with the entire Balbo and Gregg staff was excellent, particularly with my attorney Mr. AJ Balbo. As an active duty service member who was going through a lengthy divorce and child custody case, AJ assisted me in retaining my children, my house and retirement from my ex-wife. His understanding of both Georgia and UCMJ greatly aided me during the divorce that spanned over three years largely in part to a 15 month deployment. AJ, along with his staff, worked with me regarding time, money and legal proceedings, and remained understanding and professional. I HIGHLY recommend either AJ Balbo or Chet Gregg with any legal matter.”
