About James Macie

For over 40 years, James Macie has served as one of the Atlanta area’s premier divorce and domestic relations lawyers.  For almost 30 years Jim has annually received the highest possible rating for legal ability and ethical standards, based on peer review, and as determined by the Martindale-Hubbell rating service.  The American Institute Of Family Law Attorneys designated him as one of the “10 Best Attorneys” in the State of Georgia in his field, based on client satisfaction. As the year 2019 began he was selected by his peers as one of Georgia’s “Super Lawyers” in the field of Family Law, an honor accorded to only about two percent of the Family Lawyers in Georgia, and one of only two attorneys so designated in Clayton, Henry, and Rockdale counties.

A graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, Jim has chaired the Family Law Section of the Atlanta Bar Association and, as early as 1984, authored the “Family Law Chapter” of the Georgia Lawyers Basic Practice Handbook.  Jim has been a frequent speaker on domestic relation topics at Continuing Legal Education seminars, having delivered presentations on “Child Custody and Visitation,” “The Utilization of Private Investigators in Domestic Relations Cases,” as well as basic overview and legal update lectures on the ever-changing area of Family Law.

Attorneys are nominated by their peers, evaluated by third-party research across 12 key categories, and reviewed by a highly-credentialed Blue Ribbon Panel of attorneys. 5% of attorneys are selected to Super Lawyers.

AV Preeminent is the best possible rating. This rating reflects high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability based on performance in five key areas of legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, and legal experience.

The Fellows comprise a global honorary society of attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of their communities. Membership in the Fellows is limited to one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. Fellows are recommended by their peers and elected by the Board of the American Bar Foundation.
