About Us

“Truth and Excellence in Preparation and Strategy”

        Verum quod Excellentia in Paratus quod Intentio


“He is a true warrior attorney,” says Joe, a civil litigation client of attorney R. Keith Prater.


27 years practicing law in courts in Georgia and Alabama has prepared attorney Prater well.  Described by one transactional client as a lawyer with the “ability to see all possible outcomes and adjust his strategy to achieve your goal,” Keith makes it his mission to live up to his personal motto: “Truth and excellence in preparation and strategy.”


“I had unsuccessfully employed two previous attorneys before I found Keith,” Sandy, a probate client, recalls when talking about her successful experience with attorney Prater.  “They did absolutely nothing for me. Keith fought for me.” And fighting for the truth is something attorney Prater takes to heart.


“I try to be innovative and strategize my client's cases from an outside-the-box perspective leaving no stone unturned,” attorney Prater says of his legal philosophy. “An example is my use of a custody trial outline that addresses each of the 16+ custody issues set forth in the Georgia statute that a court is supposed to address in a custody hearing.”  Prater has been using that outline for over a decade and has found that other attorneys have since copied the same approach.


And other attorneys have not shied away from ringing endorsements of Keith Prater. One of many examples”  “I greatly respect his legal knowledge and skills, intelligence, judgment, integrity, and diligence,” says Roger Wilson, an Atlanta criminal defense attorney.  Douglasville attorney James Money, who opposed attorney Prater in a case, went so far as to say, “few attorneys can combine knowledge of the law with the relevant facts, speak openly and honestly about the strengths and weaknesses of a case, and minimize tension between the parties to get them to focus on their children all at the same time.”


Whether your case is, a family law matter, or one involving serious personal injury, or complex business dispute, attorney Keith Prater has the experience, zealous temperament, and skill, legal and strategic planning, to help you.


Tracy, a divorce client, says that attorney Prater “was firm yet compassionate.” Heather, a divorce client says that “he made the divorce process easy.”


A 1987 graduate of the University of Alabama’s School of Law, attorney Prater is a student of the US Constitution, the law of Georgia, Federal practice law, and as importantly, a student of strategic planning and the construction of “paradigmatic success”.

He will press forward and stick with you explaining to you in layman’s terms the details legally and factually of your particular legal matter.


“This guy is whip smart, efficient, and kind,” a divorce client offered when asked about attorney Prater. “He is what lawyers should be, concerned about the merits of the case, the fight against injustice, and brave is an understatement.”

Keith is one of the best lawyers I've ever had. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Not only do I appreciate his talents, I appreciate his character as well. My shopping for a lawyer days are over, I will use Keith for any and all my needs for representation.

Several years ago I was on the receiving end of a law suit. Having never been sued before I was not familiar with the process and was quite anxious. Keith Prater took the weight of the potential litigation off my shoulders. My case was handled swiftly and settled favorably prior to going to court. He kept me well informed throughout. If, in the future, I require legal assistance I would not hesitate to retain Keith again.

"My 1st experience with being sued and Keith Prater came highly recommended. A total professional, He is a no nonsense guy, right to the point, no time wasting. He is a true Warrior Attorney and I am extremely happy he was on my team."
