Child Conservatorship Excellent Job with a complex case
Marci went beyond my expectation. She worked diligently (despite the COVID slow down in the courts) and with great compassion, in getting a resolution in my conservatorship of two children. Her hard work in getting the necessary paperwork, including serving the absentee parents, who proved difficult to locate, living separately in two states. Her personal concern for the welfare of the children and obtaining a stable environment for the them to grow up in was wonderful. I will gladly recommend her, and if need be use her again in the future.

Very professional and prompt
I have had the opportunity twice now to have had Marcy perform modification procedures on my divorce decree. In both instances, I felt as if she had my best interest in mind throughout all of the discussions we had on the available options I had. Everything went as planned with a favorable and expected outcome. I only wish I had used her from the beginning.

Divorce/Modification Child Custody
Navigating my divorce and child custody was a challenging experience to say the least but I was supported and guided every step of the way by my attorney, Marcy Akers. Marcy was very professional, caring, knowledgeable, easy to reach, aggressive, organized, and a hard fighter. I always felt I was in good hands. I highly recommend Marcy Akers for the legal expertise, compassion, and understanding of the many complex facets associated with divorce/child custody.

Highly recommended
I am really glad Marcy Akers Freeman is my attorney.  During my first meeting with her, she really listened to me and then explained the process and her plan of attack.  This is my first experience with the legal system so I have many questions and having Marcy Freeman as my attorney has definitely put me at ease. She returns my phone calls and answers all of my questions promptly. When we went to court, I felt at ease because she was clearly comfortable in the courtroom.  I totally recommend Marcy Akers Freeman and the Wynne Law Firm.

Thank You, Marcy!
We had known Marcy for many years and knew of her reputation as a great attorney but had never needed her professional services until we faced a very painful family situation. Marcy guided us through revising our wills, which help our peace of mind greatly. Even when you know what must be done in your own situation, it is very comforting to trust someone for counsel who deals with similar situations daily.

Great divorce attorney!
Marcy did a wonderful job representing me in my divorce. The consultation was professional and thorough and she presented items to be addressed that I had not thought about myself. I feel like every aspect of my divorce was addressed in an efficient manner. She was easy to communicate with and her paralegal was eager to help me and get back with me whenever Marcy was unavailable. I would recommend Marcy to anyone that needed legal representation in the future.

Compassionate and tough, she has your back!
Marcy was wonderful to work with at every step. She kept me appraised of everything that would be required from the beginning and kept me informed of the process. Even when she was out of town, if there was an ongoing issue, she would be ready to respond and provide assistance. When I felt like my ex was dragging things out unnecessarily and contacting me when I didn't want to reconcile, Marcy was very assertive with his lawyer about it and put an end to it. She went above and beyond to get my divorce finalized. I am so appreciative of her and her team!

Closed
We had changes that need to be made to our child custody paperwork that could have turned very ugly. We went straight to a mediation meeting to get things worked out, since there was alot of back child support owed. Mrs. Akers did exactly what we talked about and then some. She made me feel very comfortable in our meeting, and I never even saw my ex. We even had the bonus of completely ending the arrangements between me and the ex. Our case is Closed!

The Wynne Law Firm
I want to express my utmost gratitude to all of you for the GREAT representation I enjoyed during this dire circumstance. The professionalism you (Mrs. Freeman) evinced imbued me with confidence in the legal profession. Moreover, I highly recommend Marcy to anyone in need of superior legal representation. I rate her 10 out of 10. Finally, While divorce is not a happy occasion, I will always remember the enormous energy and devotion Marcy and Amber manifested on my behalf. P.S. Thanks again Mrs. Freeman and please continue to provide future clients with the incredible patience and loyalty that I received.

Great aggressive lawyer
Marcy Akers Freeman was my attorney. She patiently and compassionately answered all of my questions and promptly responded to my numerous emails. I immediately saw she was respected by the judge. She effectively presented my case. I felt very comfortable with her by my side. The staff at The Wynne Law Firm are knowledgeable and respectful. Although attorneys are expensive, I felt her fees were reasonable under the circumstances. If you need a great attorney, hire Marcy.

Do what she tells you to do...
Marcy was my attorney for my divorce. She gave me excellent advice, some of which I choose to not follow. I am now paying the price literally for this mistake. Hindsight is definitely 20/20. Great attorney but she can only do what you let her. So do what she says...

Divorce
Marcy is a fabulous attorney. She knows the right people, and the right methods, even obscure ones, to get the job done. I have an ex-wife that really tested the patience of Job! Marcy was always calm and in control and always knew exactly what to do with the next move. Even when my ex took me back to court for more support, Marcy turned the tables and made the entire hearing work in my favor. I learned that the legal process is very slow and deliberate, so you must be patient, however, I highly recommend Marcy! She knows how to get it done.

Marcy Akers
I cannot recommend Martha enough. Not only was she able to eliminate my child support payments but she designed a strategy whereby the court required my ex-spouse to pay me. Martha has the experience and good judgement to effectively advise clients. She made me feel like we were collaborating to determine the best path forward and that my opinion matters. Once the plan was agreed upon Martha began executing immediately and kept me informed constantly on status. In the end, Martha got results that fairly represented the interests of my daughter and me. I highly recommend Martha with absolutely no reservations.

Professional and Aggressive
Marcy represented my in a highly contested child custody battle that has gone on many years. She was able to review the case and understand the issues that needed to be addressed. She was aggressive and stood up for me when the time was come to make decisions.

Marcy
Marcy is fabulous. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field. I would (and DO) highly recommend her to anyone who is going through a divorce as she helped me immensely during very difficult times. She is professional and motivated and will definitely make your life easier during the process of divorce.

"I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Akers. Over the years we have worked in the same firm and we have worked opposite each other on matters. Every time I see her name on the pleadings I am pleased. I know that her client will be well represented and that the matter will proceed without needless delays. She is able to zealously advocate without allowing the litigation to devolve into needless personal bickering. I sincerely hope I never need a lawyer practicing Family Law, but if I I ever do Marcy will definitely be one I would give strong consideration."
