Jamie Campbell Manning nka Christian Family is passionate about overcoming the stigma that causes good people to stay in bad marriages for the wrong reasons. Christian knows what it's like to need a divorce and not want one. She knows what you are going through because she has lived it. Her insights into marriage and divorce are based on her experience.  Christian stands for the proposition that divorce can reduce the damage caused by conflict and and that it is a road to recreating families in loving and healthy way.

 

Christian earned her Juris Doctorate from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in 2001 after completing her Bachelor’s Degree at University of Rochester in 1998. Her interest in family law began as an undergraduate intern at Rochester’s Mount Hope Family Center. As a law student, she clerked at Legal Aid of Greater Cleveland in the Family Law Division. Immediately after law school she served the Appalachian Domestic Violence Project through Americorp. After a brief time as an Assistant County Prosecutor for a central Ohio county, she went into private practice. Christian has been in private practice since 2005. After many years she founded Christian Family Law (fka Manning Law Company) in 2015 to focus exclusively on family matters.

 

A professed Christian since kindergarten, her goal is to help you avoid the pain and devastation from an ill-advised divorce and from a damaging marriage. As the owner of Christian Family Law, she helps clients clearly identify what God is calling them to do to protect themselves, their children, and their finances. Most importantly she stands for the proposition that God loves you and desires for you to have a healthy, fulfilling, and God-honouring life, so you don’t have to settle for less.

Truly authentic
Having been misrepresented in the past I can say I was more than apprehensive at the thought of hiring yet another attorney. I can say today with all confidence that Jamie Manning and her associate Meghan Darah are top notch attorneys. The office staff is top notch as well. They are professional, very knowledgeable, and most of all passionate about the best outcome for their clients. I am deeply grateful for the time and effort they put into my case. We were given favor in the Court today and I am convinced that it was achieved because of the dedication of Jamie and Meghan. When you need the best to represent you, trust Manning Law Company. You will not go wrong.

Highly recommend Jamie! Great attorney, personable and all around good person
Jamie was so awesome through my whole case even as complicated as it got. She kept me informed, provided the best advice for everything and was easy to relate with. I found out about Jamie through a friend who had only good things to say about Jamie. I can honestly say the same, there is literally nothing bad to say about Jamie, she is a good person and a great attorney. Anyone who hires Jamie to represent them should have peace of mind that they have chosen the best possible representation that will give it her all!

Wonderful lawyer and person
Jamie was very willing to assist me with getting a divorce. She requested all the important information and took control. I think she truly knows her profession. I have recommended her to several people.

Top notch Lawyer
I hired Jamie again because my ex is "blatantly" violating the divorce decree. I presented all documents with proof and Jamie immediately took the case. The next court date is slated in April 2014. In the meantime I have continued to follow her advice and kept my integrity throughout this litigation. I recommend her because she's honest, has great communication skills, and is thorough.

Highly Recommend Jamie Campbell Manning!
She was my attorney through a divorce and 2 child custody cases. She provided me REAL advice that was not based on my finances. She cared about my children and what THEY needed and she had ( and still has) a very high moral code that was never lost through out the years she represented me. Miss Jamie always represented the truth and was never swayed. I would trust her with my well being as well as my children and that says a lot!

The "Real" Attorney
Jamie, was amazing. The court system is hard enough to deal with, but she kept me focused and informed about the case, and impact of my decision. Jamie isn't a lawyer that keeps the case going just for the money. She is there to get the results needed for the best interest of her clients. My case was a custody/ support case, and with Jaime's experience as a social worker and expertise as a lawyer. It made her objective to get things right for my child. If you need a " real" lawyer who knows her business, objective, but yet a bulldog in the court room ask for Jamie.
