Michael came highly recommended as a divorce attorney. I know why. What I thought would be a pretty simple, straight-forward divorce, turned into a nightmare for me. My ex-wife complicated matters on all fronts...she wanted everything and drug things out as long as she could, but Michael and his staff worked diligently to get my divorce over as quickly as possible while still looking out for my best interests.
They were always there to answer questions, give sound advice and give me reassurance. I know they did their best to save me money while the opposing side just wanted to spend my money. Michael and his team are very experienced in dealing with difficult cases. They always let me know how realistic my expectations were and what to expect from my ex-wife and her attorney. It was worth every penny to have an honest, intelligent and experienced lawyer fighting for me. It meant so much, especially in the situation I was in.
I cannot give Michael and his staff enough credit or praise. If I could not reach Michael for some reason, his associate, Lindsey Harrison, or paralegal, William Callaway, were available. Everyone I dealt with was extremely helpful and always up front with me. Michael saw me through this every step of the way and I highly recommend Michael Manely and the entire Manely Firm.

This was a case that was just handled poorly by another attorney. Custody/child support case. Please find this review as a recommendation to retain Mr. Manely and his firm. My daughter and myself were very relieved to find the Manely Law firm is Savannah, Georgia. My daughter actually retained one of the attorneys with the firm not aware the Michael Manely in Marietta was also involved throughout the progress of my daughters case. We actually retained one attorney, and got the added benefit and experience from a 25 plus year warrior in this legal field. I was the one who actually found the firm through a lengthy process of "looking around". We had already had a faulty experience with another attorney in my daughters custody/child support, it was terrible and heart breaking for my daughter and our family. Nothing good about the battles you must be prepared to fight and without that experience and knowledge of a committed attorney, you are doomed. I wish we had found Michael Manely's firm months and months ago. There is no doubt that we would not have been looking again for an attorney to represent my daughter and grandson. My daughter and I are so greatful for the results. Visitation and travel for our 7 year old out of state and visitation were greatly increased. Support was reduced 50% which was our original argument. And how Mr. Manely and our Savannah attorney argued for grandparent visitation and ordered by the judge to allow us the grandparents the right to travel/escort our grandson is unheard of. Ain't gonna happen in Georgia. But Mr. Manely and our Savannah Manely attorney new the law to make this possible. Thank You.

Mr. Michael Manely and his law firm is the best law firm I have had the pleasure of working with. In my battle I have had to retain several lawyers and in my experience the Manely firm has been nothing but top notch!! I have read other reviews and I must say I have witnessed absolutely NOTHING that has been written negatively against him or his firm. Yes, I have spent a considerable amount of money but that is what you have to do to get the best representation. He by far, is worth every penny!! I have high praise for Mr. Manely and would recommend him to anyone that is seeking a great honest lawyer.

I endorse this lawyer. I work for Mr. Manely. He is a wonderful mentor and an incredible lawyer. It is quite amazing to see him in court. He is very passionate about family law and there is no one who knows more about family law than he does. Who else has won unanimously before the United Supreme Court on a family law matter? I've worked closely with him on cases. He is very caring and very strategic.
