It's been an interesting phenomenon. Ever since I wrote the Labor Day
blog entry that our Savannah office was just about to open, people have
been asking me whether it ever did. I had started a sequel that I didn't
finish. I apologize for not finishing the thought. I know how annoying
that can be.
The Manely Firm's Savannah office did open on schedule on September
4. Shelia, David, Trey and I worked to ready the second floor suite for
our new clientele and well wishers.
It is so much fun to build an office from scratch: desks, chairs, rugs,
tables, lamps, copiers, computers, pictures (some), pens, paper, letterhead
(still on the way) and business cards (just in). To go from an empty shell
to a full blown office, ready to do business in a new city is gripping.
To know that the brand new office has the support, backing and fire power
of the 20 plus person family law firm complete with now six high calibre
attorneys is awe inspiring. At least for me.
And to top it off, the Savannah personnel are fantastic. Trey Vereen volunteered
to leave our Marietta office to return to the lovely town of his Savannah
College of Art and Design days. And David Schachter, a top rate, often
sought after family law attorney practicing in Chatham County for many
years now, agreed to leave the fantastic family law firm he'd practiced
with to join our enterprise. What a team.
So now, yes, we are in
Savannah, open and doing business. We have brought our no nonsense, commonsense
approach to family law to the Superior Court of Chatham County and the
surrounding counties. And we couldn't be more proud.
The Savannah office, like the offices in Marietta, Atlanta, Lawrenceville
and Canton, will handle all family law matters, from divorce to child
custody, to child support; from legitimation to modification and contempt.
So, whether you've got a family law issue you need to discuss (remember
that our consultations are free) or whether you just want to take in our
new digs at 339 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in the Capitol City
Bank building in the historic district, stop on by. We'll put on a
pot of coffee for you.
See you soon.
