The Manely Firm, P.C., with six offices throughout Georgia, located in Atlanta, Columbus, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Marietta and Savannah, is recognized throughout the state and the world as a leader in Domestic and International Family Law. We also proudly handle Estate Planning and Probate cases. Our Firm has been successfully practicing for over 30 years and is committed to providing unparalleled legal service and concierge-level support to every client we serve.

We Know Local Courts

Each divorce and family law court has its own separate and individual way of doing things. At The Manely Firm, P.C., we know — not just Georgia family law — but the way family law is practiced in specific courts in individual counties all around the state, like the courts in Fulton County or in Cobb County. Even within the same court, one family law judge is likely to handle a matter differently than another and we have the experience to know that.

We are established in the community and have built a strong rapport with members of the legal system here. We are familiar with the family law judges and their staff, and we can help our clients predict results based on our in-depth knowledge and experience.

It can be critical for your lawyer to anticipate your judge’s preferences so that you have every opportunity to achieve positive results. For example, some judges may place great emphasis on working with your children. Other judges may be upset if you bring your children to court. Our attorneys know these preferences from years of experience and can advise you accordingly for optimal results.

At The Manely Firm, P.C., these are just a few of the key advantages of working with us.

Concierge-Level Service

We understand what you are facing and how you are feeling. Divorce, custody and post-divorce problems can sometimes feel like they will never end. If you are dealing with courts in foreign countries, the process can be even more confusing and drawn out. Estate planning and probate issues can become lengthy and frustrating as well and cause great stress for families. Whatever your family law or estate planning needs may be, the lawyers at The Manely Firm, P.C., will discover what makes your case unique, requiring a specific legal strategy different from every other. We will work hard to ensure the success of your case.

We also understand that the major life changes you are experiencing often come with a large set of to-do’s and challenges. Here at The Manely Firm, P.C., we are committed to providing each client with concierge-level service from the very first time you call us well past the settlement of your case. We provide a huge list of referrals and assistance with all of the things you will need in the coming days, weeks and months. Need a moving company? What about a home appraiser? Math tutor for your child? Help contacting the Social Security Administration for a name change? We can help and these are just a few examples of the many that we can refer you to the right people to get you on a path to success.

Our firm is proudly focused on maximizing these SIX aspects of concierge level service for every client we serve:

  1. Offer unexpected perks or amenities
  2. Perform random acts of kindness
  3. Provide a superior digital experience
  4. Provide an enhanced in-office experience
  5. Remove customer pain
  6. Serve as a trusted advisor

The Manely Firm, P.C. is proud to provide all of these concierge-level support services for all of our clients to ensure we meet their needs and wants, while reaching their hopes, dreams and aspirations!

Consultations are available in-person at any of our Georgia offices in Atlanta, Cumming, Columbus, Marietta, Lawrenceville and Savannah. We are also happy to provide consultations via Zoom or over the phone for your convenience. We serve clients throughout Georgia and across the globe.
