I am a client of The Millard Firm and I think this office is amazing. I hire the firm during a time of doubt and little faith and they assisted me, calmed me, and kept me informed throughout the case. Marcy and Jill met with me prior to every major date to make sure that I was aware of each step. Heather always made sure to keep me posted on the process that was happening when I wasn't in court and has consistently provided me with the most up to date paperwork and other necessary documents. Johana took my phone calls,heard me when I was worried...then talked me off a ledge! The Millard Firm continues to assist me through unknowns that come up. This firm is a tight ship! I am more than happy with my results!

Marcy Millard and her team were fantastic throughout the divorce process. Her counsel was clear and concise. She or someone from her team promptly answered any of my questions. Mediation went smoothly because she made sure we were well prepared. She worked well with consultant accountants as well as opposing counsel. I would recommend Marcy Millard for your family law needs.

I hired the Millard Law Firm, and Marcy Millard is an excellent attorney!! I spoke with Joanna, the receptionist, several times. She was quick-tempered and discourteous. During this time, I was told that I had an $800 credit, and I needed to replenish my retainer fee because I had a pending court date. I have documentation that states my bill has been paid in full. I have numerous unanswered questions regarding my case, especially billing issues. Joanna told me that there were fees that she forgot to add to my bill, which resulted in my account being drained. In addition to padding the bill, she also double-billed me for various services and charged me for a processor server that was not needed. She also told me that I could not speak to Marcy directly because an $800 credit was not sufficient to have a short conversation with her. I paid the second installment fee of $2500, and I was still unable to speak with Marcy after I made that payment. The only two times that I was able to speak with my attorney in-depth was during the initial consultation and the day of court.

Marcy Millard served as my attorney for barely 15-days (May 14 to May 29, 2015). I submitted a retainer fee of $3,500 together with a 3-page retainer contract document with no billing rate plan. This large sum of money was quickly exhausted in seven (7) days of double-billing and padding-the-bill spanning 05/15, 05/18, 05/19, 05/20, 05/26, 05/27, and 05/29. I had to terminate her representation because my relatively simple divorce became a quagmire, no progress and the result of the 30-days conference held on May 26 2015 was dismal. I called her law office 4-times from May 27 thru May 29, 2015 after the ill-fated 30-days mediation conference call, I was unable to setup an appointment to discuss my concerns.
At first, the law firm presented themselves as aggressive, responsive, and ready to powerfully and excellently represent me. During the first 30-days conference, I was coaxed into to sign away my pre-martial personal properties and rights, and as soon as I signed on dotted line a court order was issued without my knowledge since Marcy Millard failed to give me a copy of the court. I was unaware of the court order until my ex took my daughter and moved her to a different school and daycare in Gwinnett as well as denied me visitation rights, I withhold child support. Then, I became aware that Fulton Superior court had issued a court order on May 26 2015 which Marcy Millard did not make available to me. I was bilked $5,700 on my credit card with double-billing and bill-padding. In 7-days billing, all five paralegals touched whatever documents they prepared and billed me from $100-$150/hr. as well as $350/hr. for her review.
Beware of this “shark” PISTRIS Law firm.

The team at Millard Law Firm helped me during one of the most difficult times of my life. They were caring and sympathetic about my divorce, but at the same time provided me with practical advise and guidance so I could make good decisions. I am now so thankful that they helped me figure out the best options. Jill, Marcy, and Heather really made me feel like they were right there with me the whole time. My life is finally coming back together, and the Millard Law Firm helped me find this path. I will hire them again if I have any other law needs in the future.

1) Do NOT believe the review. She pays people to write it. I was offered by JoAnna credit to write a positive review, but I refused it. Her bill is EXCESSIVE, UNREASONABLE AND PADDED 2) On 8/27/15 initial meeting, she invited a junior attorney, Jill Byers, to take notes and charged me at $600/hr without even telling me. I was being charged $3,000 for 5 hrs meeting and threatened me if I did not pay ASAP, she would not represent me at the hearing. 3) At the hearing, she even asked Jill Byers to delivered the paper and charged me $1,250 for the service though i have never requested Jill to represent me. During the hearing lunch time, i was charged $900 to have lunch with her. 4) She asked Heather to make a huge stack of copies (she herself did not even know what was it) and charged me $570. Secondly, she is an extremely weak litigator, always look for extra excuses to charge clients. I eventually dismissed her. If you need a strong good reasonable attorney representing you, please find somewhere else.

Let me start by saying that I am forever grateful for Marcy Millard, Jill Byers and the rest of the team! I have been working with them since 2011 to obtain sole custody of my son. Their expertise and ability to navigate through two complicated court battles was invaluable. What makes this team so special, though, is the level of support and compassion they showed during such a difficult time. We worked together to build our strategy and they were completely invested in helping me protect my son. I cannot thank them or recommend them enough!

My case was handled swiftly from the beginning till the end. Marcy & Jill and all the ladies in the team updated me constantly. They also anticipated problems that might come up if I start up wrong in the case before I decide to proceed. They both gave me options which resulted amazingly quicker than I anticipated. Although my case involved that I can be emotional with regards to going back and forth with my questions and emails they didn't try to suppress it but they let me express myself on the case. More power to the ladies team of Millard Law:)

Marcy Millard, Jill Byers and the entire staff at the Millard Law Firm worked tirelessly to defend me in a case that lasted over a year. I was completely satisfied with the final outcome of my case and would highly recommend the team. You will find them to be honest, caring, responsive and extremely knowledgeable in their field !!
