The lawyer you need for a complicated Family Law Case
Steve Mansbery is a very effective family lawyer. He always listens to what I have to say, and gathers information from our conversations to turn my emotional argument into a reasonable, rational argument for the courtroom. He offers his realistic perspective on the situation, is always straightforward with what to expect, and has always provided us with several options before we move forward with the game plan. Family law is not easy, but Steve Mansbery makes it easy. I don’t know where we would be without Steve fighting our battles.

Doctor
Mr. Mansbery is an excellent attorney. He is a “top notch attorney” and I highly recommend him. I hope to never see the court room again, but if I did I know who should represent me. I will remain anonymous, but thank you for everything.

Best Defense is a Good Offense
Steve and his colleagues at Tharrington Smith were essential in guiding me through a complicated divorce. It was tempting and overly optimistic to think I could solve things with only mediation. Once the real battle started, my attorney friends recommended the office of Tharrington Smith. My best move was to retain Steve. He was readily available, and I always felt better after each meeting. Steve was great to have for depositions and court appearances. The final settlement was better than I could have hoped for. Nice to have him around for any ongoing issues as well. I recommend him strongly, and with no reservation.

The Best Legal Representation for a Complicated Divorce
After my initial consultation with Steve Mansbery, I knew immediately that he was the best attorney for me. During the consultation, I explained an extraordinary detail of my case and he informed me of existing case law supporting my situation. That gave me a level of confidence that he was the right choice. He agreed to take my complicated divorce case on short notice, while it was in progress. And, the first court date was quickly approaching. Mr. Mansbery is so brilliant and smart. He pored over reams of documents and learned the specifics of my case - which included child custody, child support, equitable distribution and extraordinary circumstances - and developed a legal strategy and path forward. Thirty days later, Mr. Mansbery was in court representing me. He knows the technicalities and intricate details of complicated divorce law. His brilliant financial mind proved to be important during the equitable distribution phase of my case. Mr. Mansbery’s consummate professionalism and strong negotiation skills led to many favorable rulings in court. From the first day he represented me until the last, he was absolutely amazing. I can say with the utmost confidence that Mr. Mansbery is the best of the best!

An extremely brilliant and thorough attorney
I owe my children’s bright futures to Steve! When I started my divorce process I was married to an attorney and I was definitely being taken advantage of. The law was not being followed due to certain associations that my ex husband had in our town (not Wake County). Steve thoroughly researched the state case laws and found a case that supported me. He was so confident that this case law was on my side that I decided to take it all the way to the NC Court of Appeals. And we WON! My kids could finally call Wake County home and they are thriving in the school system here. I think most lawyers might have given up seeing what we were up against, but Steve didn’t! He saw an injustice, and worked diligently to help me. He never over promised anything, and never pressured me to go in a direction that would have been even more expensive. He was straight forward with me at every step. Choosing Steve Mansbery as my divorce lawyer was the BEST decision I could have made for my kids. If you need a lawyer that is going to go the extra mile to make things right then you must use Steve Mansbery.

Steve Mansbery to the Rescue
Steve Mansbery was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad I took their advice. I spent a significant amount of money over a very stress full year with another lawyer with no results. Steve came during a very difficult time in my life and provided me with the best counseling and straightforward advice on how to settle out of court with minimal stress, in a timely manner that was fair to both parties. I have recommended Steve to anyone who has asked for similar help and I would encourage and highly recommend you consider Steve Mansbery as your lawyer.
