Robert (Beau) Stubbs III

Beau provided excellent counsel during my divorce case. He was very responsive to all my questions and provided excellent legal advice. I am very happy with his services and would recommend him to anyone going thru a difficult divorce as mine was.


Robert (Beau) Stubbs has been practicing law in North Georgia since 1986. He has been a civil litigator for all of that time, including several years as the Forsyth County Attorney. For the past 25 years, Mr. Stubbs has focused his practice on family law, including divorce, high asset and complex division of assets, appeals, modification, contempt and contested custody issues. He practices all over North Georgia but concentrates his practice in Forsyth, Cherokee, Hall, Lumpkin and Dawson County. He strives to resolve family law issues without rancor or unnecessary expense but recognizes litigation may be the only viable option to resolution.
