Horrible experience. I did all the work. she strung along for 6 months to get more money though through help agency, left me standing alone at court then quit next day b/ c opposing attorney was her friend who slandered me and Mary believed it with no proof. Rude and rairly able to reach
I drove over 60 miles one way more than once to give her evidence b/ c she wouldn't return calls.

I retained Mary to handle my divorce. She and her staff took very good care of me. They were very personable and friendly and made me feel very confident in their abilities.

Mary has represented me since 2012. Through 4 years of custody disputes! She has always been there for me, day or night. She truly cares about me and my son and our future. her knowledge surrounding custody and divorce is extensive! Her prices are fair. If Mary Gannaway is your attorney you will rest assured that you are represented by someone who really cares and is working to make sure you are confident in decisions and outcomes! She is amazing.

Mary is by far a very excellent attorney and I'm so blessed that we found her. She went above and beyond for us during stressful times and I couldn't be more happy with her work.

I have retained Mary Gannaway for a couple of issues. She was very thorough and good at explaining what was going to happen or what she needed from me.

Needing lawyer for divorce and custody, I looked on Avvo for someone that was both local and highly rated. That is where I found Mary. Having great reviews and being close, I decided to give her a call and scheduled a consultation. After that first visit I knew she was the right lawyer. Her knowledge and professionalism impressed me, but her genuine interest in her clients well-being as a whole is what won me over. She would make sure and ask how I was doing personally and if I needed help with anything every time we would talk. She made sure to clearly articulate all the laws concerning divorce and custody and with each step asked me what I thought and how I wanted to proceed. Mary represented me and my interests the best I could have hoped for and I would highly recommend her.

Mary was great handling my divorce. I came to her broken at the first of the year & by the end of October I had a settlement. It was an uncontested divorce with no minor children but I am onLTD. Mary was able to help me get a decree that helped me keep what I had worked for before I had to go on disability.
Very professional and friendly.

Ms. Gannaway came recommended to me by an officer of the Court who knew that I was extremely disappointed with the 12 month progress of my first atty. I fired that first atty and hired Ms. Gannaway. I could not have been more pleased. Unlike the first atty whose agenda was to maintain me as a revenue source, Ms. Gannaway quickly established a plan to bring my legal issue to conclusion. What I also appreciated about Ms. Gannaway's was that she permitted me to be actively involved. Whereas I am a very "hands-on" type of person, Ms. Gannaway welcomed my suggestions and allowed me to be a part developing a strategy. As I learned, selecting an atty is a very difficult matter. Unfortunately it took me two tries to get a good one. I absolutely will recommend Ms. Gannaway and should I find myself in need of a legal services, I will not hesitate to hire her again. I will always be grateful to the Court official who recommended that I call Mary Gannaway.

Mary is one of those rare cases of an attorney who genuinely understands the clients need to be informed of their case and what she believes the best course of action is. Never during her time as my attorney did I feel unaware of developments or Marys strategy. Furthermore she is always professional to opposing council which goes much farther that one might think but makes a huge difference with the judges deciding cases. Bottom line she has so much integrity and compassion as an attorney you owe it to your case to discuss it with her.
Also her assistant Laura is amazing and will always get back to you when Mary is in court. Great team. Wish I had Hired her sooner.

Mary Gannaway was literally a God send to me and my family during our case. While our case is still ongoing, the progress that has been made has been tremendous and we have Ms. Gannaway to thank for that. From the moment that we first hired her almost 9 months ago to now, she has fought for what is right. She has a no-nonsense attitude towards doing what is best for her clients. The most important thing to me is her commitment to the children involved in the custody case process and ensuring they get what is in their best interests. Our case has been difficult to say the least, involving an uncooperative other party, multi-state orders, and many difficult twists and turns. The worst part was I was being unfairly denied any form of contact with my child by the other party. She was the first attorney we had that was able to actually get my rights as a father enforced. She has worked with us to ensure our wishes were being heard, that our priorities were her priorities. Ms. Gannaway has offered us more than just a legal service. We truly believe that she cares as much about the outcome of the case as we do, which is well beyond the typical "I won/they lost" attitude many other lawyers we have encountered seem to have. While it may seem to take a while to get things done in the court system, Ms. Gannaway keeps you informed and communicates any delays or progressions that are made in a timely manner. She explains the process and the estimated time lines for motions and orders. She always gives you the honest assessment of the situation and gives you realistic expectations and not just a fancy, spun fairy tale that will not actually come true. I speak for myself and my entire family in saying that we would recommend Mary Gannaway's services to anyone who is going through a divorce/child custody case. I would especially recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in a situation/case in which you feel utterly lost or helpless due to how difficult it is. She can honestly get you some relief and she truly has your back through this difficult time.
