About The Manely Firm, P.C.

“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, custody, parental kidnapping, modification, high asset divorce, same sex rights, reproductive rights and family law appeals. We have multiple offices located in Atlanta, Forsyth, Lawrenceville, Marietta and Savannah. 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. Savannah’s Supervising Attorney and Partner, David Purvis, successfully argued a case regarding the legitimacy of children born of IVF before the Georgia Supreme Court. Additionally, we handle estate planning and probate cases as well. 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.

When you choose to work with us, you can be confident your attorney is choosing the appropriate strategy for pursuing your case, one that takes into account your unique circumstances. Although our lawyers have handled thousands of cases and understand what options to offer to you, our recommendations are based upon a thorough understanding of what is best for your situation to produce your desired outcome. Resolving your case as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible is also a priority for us. Because we have years of experience practicing exclusively in family law, we can apply the most up-to-date legal theories and strategies toward resolving your case. Our attorneys are respected and recognized locally and internationally for their professionalism and as lawyers who truly care about putting their clients’ interests first.

Does your case involve a domestic family law issue? We are established in the community and have built a strong rapport with members of the legal system here. We are familiar with the family law judges and their staff, and we can help our clients predict results based on our in-depth knowledge and experience. Another major advantage of hiring our divorce and family law attorneys is our five convenient locations throughout the Atlanta metro area and in Savannah. In addition to having one central location in downtown Atlanta, our law offices are located right next to the local courthouses in Marietta, Lawrenceville, Forsyth and Savannah.

Does your case involve an international family law issue? Has your former spouse taken your children out of the United States or transferred joint funds to a foreign bank account? Do you need top representation in a Hague Convention case? We can assist you with these and similar kinds of issues. Our attorneys have successfully resolved such matters in foreign courts in cost-effective ways and have argued cases before the highest court in some countries. We affiliate with foreign attorneys on cases filed outside of the United States. Our nationally respected experts help support and document your case, regardless of where it is filed. If you find yourself having to answer to a foreign court or religious body in another country on a family law matter, you want us on your team. Our international family law attorneys have a detailed knowledge of applicable treaties that the United States has with other countries and understand how a country’s laws governing these issues will affect the outcome. Being culturally aware and sensitive can help diffuse tensions in these kinds of cases and resolve matters more quickly. We proudly serve our clients in 10 languages in addition to English.

If you have estate planning or probate needs, The Manely Firm, P.C. has more than two decades of experience helping Georgia families create comprehensive estate plans customized to their unique needs and complex assets. Over the years, our attorneys have helped thousands of families create and appoint varying wills, trusts and powers of attorney. We can help you understand estate planning strategies and which ones are most beneficial for your family.
