Why The Manely Firm, P.C.? Because You Need It Done Right The First Time. Make The Smart Choice.
“When you or your family’s welfare is at stake, you want an attorney with a reputation for winning. The worst settlement you can make is to settle for an attorney without a winning track record.” – Founding Attorney Michael Manely
The Manely Firm, P.C. is a full service all family law firm serving clients all around Georgia and all around the world. The firm’s focus is on complex family law cases to include:
- Domestic and international divorce
- Parental kidnapping
- High asset divorce

- Family law appeals
The Firm has offered excellent family law representation for over 30 years. Founding Attorney Michael Manely has the distinction of being the only all family law attorney to win unanimous decisions before both The United States Supreme Court and The Supreme Court of Georgia.

Additionally, we handle estate planning and probate cases. The firm offers a legal team of experienced attorneys, paralegals and client care coordinators to pursue resolution for family legal matters with a focus on identifying and furthering the needs, wants, hopes, dreams and aspirations of the clients we serve.
