True Compassion
I hired Atty. McKamey to represent myself in a divorce involving my 2yoa daughter. The odds were stacked against me, with me being placed on administrative leave from my career, and forced to vacate my home. Janne set realistic expectations for myself and showed a willingness to fight not only for me, but for my daughter's wellbeing as well. The other party in my case prolonged and delayed any action/response for several months, forcing us to go to a final trial. Through no suggestion or pleading of my own, Janne offered a reduced rate for my final trial, and remained open to several options for payment arrangements in the months preceding. I was anxious going into trial, but Janne was accommodating going so far as to ask if I needed to take a break due to me looking visibly stressed out and drained. I came out victorious in this case, with me getting joint custody of my daughter, sole ownership of my home, and my job back. Janne rose from her chair walked over to me and gave me the most sincere and genuine hug; a moment of which that I will remember for the rest of my life. Janne had my back through this entire process and if there ever comes a time where her services are needed again, I absolutely will not hesitate to hire her again. A thousand "Thank You's" simply isn't enough when it comes to just how much she changed my outlook on things. If you require compassion, commitment, courage, and the absolute willingness to fight for you, hire Attorney McKamey.

Janne McKamey Testimonial
I hired Janne for an internet defamation case. Janne has an extensive understanding of the law and fights for her clients. She isn't judgemental and is very fair and reasonable in her billing. I obtaiend everything I wanted in mediation. Additionally she has consulted with me on numerous issues from real estate, debtor/creditor issues, family law and corporate law. Most importantly, Janne is actually concerned about her clients and doesn't look at them as another billing opportunity without caring about the results.

GREAT lawyer
I had heard of Janne through a friend when I was experiencing a child modification issue. Being a young mother of four with little income, I was skeptical about obtaining a lawyer of any kind. When I met with Janne and explained my situation, she made me feel that I was 100% doing what I needed to and gave me the extra courage I needed to push forward. She worked with me on her fees and reduced to a level that I knew I could manage. Janne has made sure that not only did my case move quickly with minimal bumps, but that I received what I was after. She is a very honest, to the point, and compassionate woman. If you need a good lawyer, Janne is great!

Worth Every Penny
I met Mrs. Janne McKamey through a friend of mine January of this year in which I was seeking legal counsel for a child custody/visitation contempt hearing (in which we were victorious); and I have absolutely no regrets. Mrs. McKamey is an awesome attorney who is; professional, fair, listens to the needs of her client, extremely thorough, very knowledgeable in multiple areas of law and is genuine. In addition, she provides great legal advice that will work in the best interest of her client. I'm so thankful for her services; there is no greater feeling to walk into a court room an be fully confident in knowing that your attorney has your back and comes fully prepared.

Trustworthy and Dependable
I had originally consulted with Ms. McKamey regarding a child support case. She was kind, compassionate, and very thorough in her explanation of her fees. We came to an agreement, but do to unforeseeable events, I hired her to represent me in a child custody case. She has been just as thorough, just as compassionate, just as kind and she has been EXTREMELY diligent in ensuring my case was taken care of. Through no fault of her own, my cased was delayed and she has stayed on top of it, contacting the courts as necessary and keeping me in the loop with email correspondence, phone calls, and text messages. She understands the level of stress these kinds of situations can bring and is always happy to provide that personal tough to help put my mind at ease. She is a tough cookie, will stand up for her clients in and out of court, and is a wonderful example of an attorney and human being. I have given her information to several friends and acquaintances and she has done wonderful things for them as well so she is definitely worth the time and money. She is also very reasonable with the fees she charges. When I hired her I was a single mom and she was sensitive to that. We worked out her fees that made it doable for both my budget and her work. As it is, I have already paid her full fee and she is STILL working hard on my case. I admire and respect her as a person and attorney. If you need someone that is real, honest, and doesn't blow smoke, then she is your best bet!

Worst attorney for Family Law in all of ATL, GA.
-100000 stars. Attorney Janne McKamey is by far the most unprofessional attorney in the state of Georgia... And we have had consultations with at least 10 different family law attorney. Not only was Janne rude plus disrespectful to me and my husband, after only hear 5minuties of our very complicated emergency child custody case stated that it was my husband's fault that our children's birth mother took the kids away and married an abuser. Wild. I really liked my experience with Marble up until this horrific lawyer paring. Be warned that Janne McKamey will not only attempt to sabotage your legal efforts but also make you feel like a bad person for seeking justice for you children.

Response from Janne' McKamey August 24, 2022
Unfortunately as an experienced attorney it's my job to provide the proposed client with the pros and the CONS of their case so they have realistic expectations. It's completely untrue that anyone was blamed for someone else's actions, but it's not unreasonable to ask a client why legal action was delayed for over a decade. Additionally certain types of cases only concern the fathers of children, not their new wives or stepmothers to those children. While I can appreciate family members wanting to champion their loved ones causes sometimes they just need to take a step back and let the person who's going to be involved in the lawsuit have a private discussion with the attorney, provide all of the information requested and see how things progress from there. I wish them the best of luck finding an attorney to meet their needs.
