About Harmon


Harmon believes in resolving disputes on a reasonable basis as quickly as possible.

He recommends mediation and other types of Alternative Dispute Resolution whenever feasible. However, when the other side does not want to be reasonable, he will do what is necessary to protect his client’s interests.

His book, Harmon Caldwell’s Georgia Divorce Handbook, written for individuals unfamiliar with the divorce process, has been a best-seller in stores and on the internet.

Harmon believes every case is unique and he brings a creative approach to the cases which he accepts. He is compassionate in dealing with his clients and treats each case as a challenge in order to obtain the best possible result.


Harmon has handled over 1,000 contested divorce cases.

When there is a dispute over the division of assets, child custody, or the appropriate amount of support to be paid, experience counts.

Harmon has tried over 150 jury cases.

Very few cases are tried. However, every case which is settled, is settled based on what the parties and their lawyers believe would happen if the case were tried. In negotiating a settlement, it is certainly an advantage to have an attorney who the other side knows will not hesitate to try the case

Harmon has been involved in over 70 matters in Georgia’s Supreme Court

When a case is tried, there is often an appeal. Having an attorney who has been there before, knows how to frame the case and knows the pitfalls of appellate practice is a real advantage when it comes to negotiating a resolution.

Harmon has been named a Super Lawyer 10 consecutive years.

Hard work, creativity, experience and commitment to client satisfaction make a difference.

Georgia Divorce Handbook


Harmon Caldwell's Georgia Divorce Handbook is written for non-lawyers and non-divorce lawyers as a layman's guide to the Divorce process. After meeting with hundreds of divorce clients, Harmon decided that clients could not absorb all the information that he would provide in the initial meetings about the divorce. He wanted to give those clients something they could take with them and read in order to better understand the process.
