History

Eittreim Martin Cutler, LLC, was born of the coming together of veterans of several of the preeminent family law firms in the State of Georgia.  Our Firm is the immediate evolution of the award-winning Gray Eittreim Martin, LLC, which was formed in 2016, by Pamela Gray, Ted Eittreim, and Margaret Martin.  Gray Eittreim Martin, LLC was, itself, the direct successor of the celebrated firm of Mayoue Gray Eittreim, P.C., the last firm that John C. Mayoue, the well-known and highly-regarded family lawyer, called home prior to his passing in August of 2016.

Our three current named partners, Ted Eittreim, Margaret Martin, and Alex Cutler, all learned their crafts working with the best of the best at Georgia’s most highly-regarded family law firms.  While each of their individual paths leading to the formation of EMC was unique, they often found themselves on the same road for a time; whether that was working for the same firms or seeing each other in the courtroom as respected adversaries.

Ted, along with Pamela Gray, who remains Of Counsel to the Firm, worked with Mr. Mayoue for the better part of two decades; first as associates, and then as his partners beginning in the late 2000s.  Margaret cut her family law teeth at the same family law firm as Ted and Pam in the mid-1990s before moving to another one of Georgia’s top family law firms where she honed her skills for many years.  Alex developed his legal talents practicing a combination of family law and commercial litigation for seven years at a mid-sized Atlanta firm before deciding to focus exclusively on family law.  He then spent close to a decade practicing with the prominent firm of Lawler Green Prinz, LLC, where he ultimately became a partner, before joining Ted and Margaret.

Ted, Margaret, and Alex have taken the best of what they have learned over their decades-long careers and combined their efforts and approaches into Eittreim Martin Cutler, LLC.  Our Firm’s partners, attorneys, and staff alike all employ our philosophy of passionate, yet also compassionate, representation of our divorce and family law clients.  We understand and appreciate that while there will be times when the interests of our clients will best be served by arguing their interests in court, more often the best possible result is achieved by working with our clients to negotiate a resolution prior to trial, particularly when custody of children is involved.  Over their many years in practice, our lawyers have each found that, regardless of whether a case is resolved in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, the most productive path to that best possible resolution, especially in contested cases, is typically paved by diligently pursuing discovery efforts and ensuring that proper due diligence is completed.  This is especially true in the complex divorce actions that form the Firm’s primary area of focus.  In that manner, our client can be confident that all material information is uncovered prior to the resolution of the case, whether that resolution is by settlement or at trial.
