Areas of Legal Practice

An Alpharetta Attorney practicing in Georgia since 1969.

By retaining Edwin M. Saginar, Attorney at Law, for your legal counsel and representation, you have a lawyer with a proven track record of success in many legal cases. In over 40 years, I have worked with countless clients in Alpharetta and elsewhere. I have consistently achieved their goals through experience, knowledge, skill, preparation and personal attention.

My Areas of Legal Practice include:

Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a crime, you need an aggressive lawyer to protect your rights. I have handled criminal cases in courts across Georgia. I am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.

Divorce and Custody

I am an attorney who cares about the outcome of your family law case. Divorces and custody cases can be contentious. As a family law attorney, I strive to reduce tensions. My objective is to create amicable resolutions that protect my clients and their children.

Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation encompasses a broad range of disputes. I have represented many Civil Litigation clients in cases involving contract disputes, temporary restraining orders, partnership creations and partnership dissolutions and more. I am an expert trial lawyer with over 40 years of experience. I have represented clients across a broad spectrum of proceedings, including motion hearings and depositions, as well as mediation or arbitration and trial.


My objective in both large asset and moderate asset divorce cases is settling the matter amicably. I believe mediation is a good tool to foster settlement. If a case goes to trial, I prepare diligently.

Temporary Protective Orders

A Temporary Protective Order (TPO) is granted when one person gets a court order to keep someone else away from him or her in the case of abuse, harassment, threats, etc. A TPO  is an Order of the Court with significant consequences. It is often used for posturing in a divorce situation.

Estate Disputes/Litigation

Unfortunately, the death of a loved one can divide a family, especially in instances where there is no Will or the Will is contested. I work hard to settle such disputes avoiding financially costly and emotionally draining court cases with your family. When a case of this nature goes to trial, you need an Attorney who has experience in these issues.

Business Law/Business Disputes

I provide startup counseling for entrepreneurs, form S Corporations, C Corporations, LLCs, business partnerships and other entities, and prepare the related documentation. Additionally, I negotiate and prepare documents between business partners, including shareholders' agreements, operating agreements, partnership agreements, business succession planning and buy-sell agreements.
