Marietta Divorce and Family Law Services

History of the office

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 client’s, Mary’s growth was almost immediate. She then started a Marietta divorce attorney practice, which was just small 3 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 Office.

Beautiful large house that was converted into an office building.  Our office is just 1 ½ blocks (walking distance) to the Marietta Square with all it has to offer from an abundance of shops and restaurants.
