Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor is proud to announce that founder Mary Stearns-Montgomery has been recognized as one of Georgia Trend magazine's 2009 Legal Elite.
Each year, Georgia Trend magazine polls thousands of Georgia attorneys, asking them to nominate their peers for Georgia Trend's roster of the state's Legal Elite attorneys selected as the most effective in 11 different practice areas. The Legal Elite attorneys are then featured in the magazine's December issue.
In the seven years that Georgia Trend has published the Legal Elite list, Mary has been chosen three times for the Legal Elite Family Law practice area.
Mary has been practicing family law in Georgia for more than 20 years, helping clients with divorce, mediation, child and spousal support, adoption and legitimation. She is an accomplished speaker and conducts seminars on family law and practice management concepts for other attorneys. Mary's most recent appearance was on the America's Web Radio show Divorce Resource, where she spoke about ways to detect and deter parental alienation.
The firm would like to congratulate Mary on this prestigious recognition by her peers.
