Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor Reviews
We can highlight our experience, dedication to family law, and unique team approach, but here is what our clients say about their experience with the attorneys at Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor.
“…attentiveness to detail, understanding your circumstances, creating a strategy, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to meet your needs…The team at Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor totally came through for me and I would recommend them hands down above anyone else.”
““…always acted with ethic, loyalty, dedication and compassion…”
“With [his] guidance we were able to strategically focus our resources of time and money where they would be most beneficial… always had my best interests in mind.”
“I hired Jenni to help me with child support and custody which had a great outcome. I highly recommend her to anyone going through a challenging law situation. She was the only attorney I contacted who really heard me out, understood my unique situation and told me it was worth pursuing. She was a great balance of vigorous, professional representation with sensible and compassionate reasonableness with me as a client – all without gouging me financially which was different from prior experiences I’ve had from other attorneys. I never felt like she was trying to rack up fees unnecessarily, in fact I always felt she was working with me to keep costs in line. While the opposing counsel engaged in tricks involving my minor child and frivolous appeals, Jenni kept my child’s best interests in mind and did not engage my child in unnecessary meetings or any games that could have made her childhood experience even worse. Jenni is very responsive – she will call or email you back – and if you can’t reach her, her paralegal is very accessible, but Jennie was always on call when I needed her. I am so happy I called her to represent me – a total class act.”
“Going through a divorce at later stage in my life was more traumatic than I would have ever believed. Randy’s experience with, and knowledge of Georgia divorce law helped me understand my legal rights and what my options were to either settle, mediate, or go to court. With Randy’s help, guidance, advice and strategy we were able to reach a settlement agreement without ever having to go to mediation or court. The best thing about Randy was his emphasis on preparation from day one, especially my financials. He gave me a sense of confidence an knowledge that allowed me to take some strong positions as we finalized settlement agreement negotiations. Not only is he a great lawyer with the tenacity of a bulldog, but he couldn’t be more appreciable and has a terrific sense of humor which are qualities and traits that certainly work to his clients benefit.”
“Randy is highly skilled, compassionate and very thorough. He’s just a great attorney! He and his team were professional and extremely knowledgeable. They made an absolutely miserable situation much more tolerable. Everyone was so incredibly supportive throughout the whole process. Randy even had a way of pulling me out of those moments when I was ready to throw in the towel and give my ex everything he wanted. He could even make me laugh during very stressful times. From the very beginning, Randy told me to sit tight and eventually my ex would hang himself. That’s exactly what happened and Randy was prepared for it. I would highly recommend Randy Sabatini and the law firm of Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor to anyone facing a divorce. He really helped guide me and helped me feel more comfortable with the process. He did everything he could to save me as much money as he could and get me everything I wanted. Thank you Randy and the firm of Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor for helping me through this very challenging time! Randy and the firm will always have a special place in my heart.”
“You have made an otherwise overwhelming situation tolerable… Being able to assure the kids that they would be here, with us, being cared for, was the best gift we could have received!”
“…I was very impressed with [her] knowledge of the law and attention to the details… We were able to settle the case through mediation I believe because of the confidence she projected and ability to address the facts."
“…helped get me the answers that I needed and made me feel more comfortable with all the decisions that needed to be made.”
“Chris and I want to sincerely thank you for all that you did for us to ensure Emma is in a good home. From what I can understand you have performed a miraculous act by proving a child is better off with her father then her mother. You know that I feel it should never be clear that a system is for one parent over the other but that seems to be the case everywhere. Chris had always told me this but I just thought he was being a bit jaded from his past experiences. Emma returned from her summer visitation with her mother on the 31st of July and she had a cold. Later she was showing us some videos she made at her moms and the time on them was 2:09am. Emma was exhausted and very sick from all of these all-nighters she had with her friends. Along with being sick for two weeks. She slept until 10 the next morning got up then slept the rest of the day until 6pm when I woke her for dinner. Then back to bed until 9 the next morning. I just don’t understand not putting the wellbeing of your child before anything else. I guess her mom will never change. Thanks for helping us to be able to put Emma first. So many things have been common sense to us along the way in this process and we have been very frustrated at times. I do wish things had gone better with the mediation. I feel like she completely misread Chris. I told Jane what had happened to give her the rest of the story or the end of this part of the story. It has not gone unnoticed by us though that Allie is going to have to pay pretty close to her full payment in child support through the process you set up and we thank you for that. At least she is not getting a credit for travel costs that she is not going to use. We are pretty sure she would rather spend even more money on travel then to write Chris a check for 750 dollars. Allie is a very good actor and she sheds a few tears and that wins a lot of people over. I wish the mediator had seen through it like the judge did. I’m surprised that she didn’t recognize that if this “mother favoring judge” gave Chris custody of Emma then it must have been a bad situation Emma was in. We did want to fight for Allie to pay full support because we know if the shoe was on the other foot she would have gotten more. That is what she was fighting for in court to begin with. She wanted more child support. We just couldn’t go through the ups and downs anymore from the process of a court battle. It was the most difficult thing to go through knowing that Emma was in a hostile environment living with her mother and we begged her many times to stop the fighting especially in from of the kids. These kids now have such a warped understanding of what a relationship is. We try to talk to Emma about good relationships and we are hopeful that she will have healthy relationships in her future. We owe you a debt that can never be paid. Thank you and the staff for being so understanding of our payment arrangements and working with us to make it work for you as well as us. Emma is happy in school and she loves her teachers and the individual attention she gets from them. There are only 34 kids in her class and they split that in half. She plays soccer, basketball and track and she loves it! We thank you so much. Enjoy your babies because it goes by so fast…”
