The calendar announced winter this December, but she decided to make a fashionably late entrance. The warmer-than-usual weather did not subdue the holiday spirit at SM&P. We continued working hard to solve family law challenges for our clients while also spreading seasonal cheer whenever and wherever possible.

Staff at the firm collected toys for the beloved Marine Toys for Tots program this year. See what they found at the toy stores to brighten the holidays for local children.

Again, this year, SM&P was involved with Wreaths Across America in memory of our military veterans of all times and wars. Read about the touching events of that day.

The firm decided to participate in Legal Aid’s Holiday Project. Find out more about how this project helps families around the area, including one very special mother and daughter assisted by SM&P staff.

January’s Attorney Spotlight features Alycia Vail. This Georgia native has been dedicated to family law since high school. Learn what she has to offer clients needing an advocate to guide them through an often confusing legal system.

Many of the metro court systems will be closed on January 17 in observance of MLK Day; however, our offices will be open to service new and current clients. We wish all our clients and friends a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
