Alex Cutler specializes in the areas of divorce and family law, including high net worth divorce litigation, child custody litigation, alimony and child support matters, actions for modification of custody and support, and contempt actions.  Before joining the firm as a partner, he was previously a partner with the family law firm of Lawler Green Prinz, LLC.  Prior to that, he spent seven years as a litigator with a mid-sized Atlanta firm where, in addition to practicing family law, he specialized in the areas of commercial litigation, real estate litigation, and lender/debtor workouts and litigation.  Alex puts his diverse legal background to use assisting clients whose cases may involve complex business interests and extensive property holdings.

Though a “trial lawyer” at heart, Alex has developed a reputation as being a solutions-oriented attorney who believes that family law matters are to be handled with the utmost discretion and professionalism.  Recognizing that life goes on after a divorce case is over, Alex works with his clients to craft strategies, both in the courtroom and at the negotiating table, that take the client’s long-term financial and emotional well-being into account.  When dealing with a contested child custody matter, Alex believes in taking a “child-centered” approach to the case with the goal of putting his client and the client’s children in the best position to move forward as a healthy family when the case is done.

Alex has been recognized by Super Lawyers in the area of family law every year since 2014.  Alex has been a member of the Georgia Bar since 2004, and is currently a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Georgia Supreme Court, and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.  Alex is very active in the Atlanta Bar Association, where he sits on the board of the Family Law Section.  Alex is also a member of the Cobb County Bar Association.

Alex graduated from Emory University School of Law in 2004 where he received the International Academy of Trial Lawyers Award for Distinguished Achievement in the Art and Science of Advocacy.  During law school he was selected to the Emory University Moot Court Society Special Team for Evidence where he served as both a competitor and coach.  Prior to law school, Alex received his B.A. in Government, cum laude, from Connecticut College in 2001.

Alex shares his knowledge of divorce and family law issues with the broader legal community through speaking engagements.  He is the co-author of Crafting Effective Deposition Outlines, published by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

A native of New Jersey, Alex has been a Georgia resident since 2001.  Alex resides in the East Cobb area with his wife and three children.
