Testimonials

Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to bring my daughter back to The United States from Scotland. Because of you and your winning oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court, I can always honestly say to her that I did everything I possibly could to be there for her.

"I wish to take this opportunity to thank you and all the people of the Manely Firm for the professional manner in which you performed the requirements of Pam's divorce. I was never concerned about Pamela being in "GOOD HANDS" all the way in this matter. It was so comforting to my wife and me to know that such a professional firm was looking after our "Little Girl" who is so very special to us. We had told her to get the best in the business to represent her and we are convinced that she did.

If I knew the names of all the people who worked on the case, I would thank them all by name. Pam told me on several occasions that you all were so responsive to her needs and never failed to be available to her and get her concerns addressed in a very timely fashion. You were extremely punctual in getting the monthly billings out to Pam and me and were always ready to answer any questions we had about them.

I will close by saying, if you have to go through a divorce, you really need the Manely Law Firm on your side.

Best regards,
Bill"

"I had other counsel working with me on my child custody case. He wasn't pushing my case forward, wasn't responsive to opposing counsel, and left me standing before the judge in a hearing without counsel. I dismissed him and went to Michael for help. Michael took my case and pushed it forward despite the delay tactics employed by opposing counsel. During a discussion with my neighbor, I discovered that opposing counsel's strategy to win cases is to intimidate and delay in an effort to emotionally and financially devastate you and force you to drop or settle. Michael was steadfast in moving my case forward and presented my case to the judge with meticulously documented support. Michael and his staff did a great job and were very responsive in my case. I highly recommend Michael and his firm.
