Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor Marietta Family Law Office

About the Marietta Divorce Law Firm

Leading Cobb County divorce attorney, Mary Stearns-Montgomery, began as a solo practitioner back in 1988. Due to her large success and reputation for fighting for her clients, Mary’s growth was almost immediate. She then started a Marietta divorce attorney practice, which was just a small three-room office on Alexander Street, and by 2000 moved a block down into a 5,000 square foot office space. It has since grown to 7,000 square feet to accommodate the large number of mediations conducted on the premises. In 2010, Mary added Georgia divorce lawyer Ryan Proctor, as a partner. Then in 2013, Ryan moved his main office to the Buckhead location. Randy Sabatini became a partner in April 2015 and opened the Alpharetta law office. Melanie Prehoka became partner in the Fall of 2020 and opened the Canton law office.
