I recently got divorced and was represented by Diane Cherry. She was amazing in the courtroom. She made it seem as if his lawyer had never done a divorce before! Ms. Cherry should have presented his lawyer with a bill since she did all the work.

From the initial phone consultation through the resolution of my case, Diane was both knowledgeable and efficient. There were days I called and emailed numerous times asking questions, airing concerns, and sometimes just needing to "talk things through". I was always treated with respect, given straight forward answers/advice, and the directives we would decide upon together were followed through immediately. This was a child custody case and I actually felt sorry for my daughter's father at times because I felt my legal team was running circles around his. I ended up with exactly What I needed for my child's safety and my piece of mind. Would highly recommend Diane and her team!

Diane and her team of professionals (especially Rachele) worked through my contested, long term, divorce case very efficiently. This legal 'A Team' was always available to remove any legal roadblocks, confusion, and frustration and offered win-win solutions. Equally important, they were very ethical, provided me with clarity and moral support during a very chaotic time while protecting my privacy. If you are looking for extraordinary then look no further. Diane and her team is your pick!

Dianne kept everything as stress free as possible. When I had a million questions her and her staff could answer them all and put me at ease. Everything was clean and organized and I understood at all times what was going on.

Diane represented me in my divorce this year. After staying at home for 5 years with my 3 children, I was very worried about getting back on my feet and starting life over as a single mother. She has much confidence in her own ability, is very assertive, and is definitely not a pushover. I have a friend who went through a divorce at the same time as me using a different attorney, and my friend and I could see that Diane was definitely a "go getter" compared to my friend's attorney. Diane was the last attorney I interviewed out of 10 lawyers I consulted with for my divorce. Yes, I actually interviewed 10 attorneys because I was very nervous about having to file for divorce. There was something about Diane that my gut told me to hire her. I am pleased with the final settlement. My divorce took 5 months, which seems to be typical in Georgia when it is not contested. Diane responds to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. She even responded on the weekend, which is a plus especially when anxiety is a bit higher during a divorce. I plan to use her again for other legal matters if the need arises.
Diane Cherry was my divorce attorney.

Diane had the knowledge, strength, and sharp perception to get me through a very tough divorce. She was unwavering when it came to ensuring fairness for my children and myself. I had a very aggressive opponent, and needed someone with the confidence and ability to handle him. Diane certainly did. I expected a long and difficult fight, but she remained tough and settled my divorce within 4-5 months. She also counseled me about potential future problems, and advised me on how to plan for them. I highly recommend Diane as an advocate during a divorce.

The Cherry Law Firm is the best firm in Cobb County. Diane Cherry goes above and beyond to help her clients. I used the firm for a recent divorce case. It was a difficult divorce with a lot of outside circumstances. Diane and her team were aggressive, knowledgeable, ethical, and looked out for my best interests at all times. In court, Diane was amazing. While being dignified and professional, she showcased my side of the divorce with aggressiveness in court and a knowledge of my.case that was remarkable. I would highly recommend her firm. I work with a lot of attorneys in Cobb County and I am glad that I chose.Diane Cherry to represent me.

I was recently involved in a domestic dispute with my girlfriend and we were both arrested and charged with family violence. My world was turned upside down and I was scared out of my mind of what would happen. This was my first time ever being arrested and I knew that this could result in having a criminal record. I've never had to hire an attorney in my life for anything. After researching and talking to several lawyers, including Diane, I decided to retain her services as I felt very confident after our initial phone consultation that she would be able to help me. This was the best decision I've made in my life. She suggested that I take steps before my court date to help my cause, which proved to be beneficial. After visiting with her the second time she forwarded all of my paper work to the solicitor in the case. Within about three hours of leaving her office she was able to get the solicitor to agree to dismiss my case with no further actions needed. I didn't even have to go to court. Diane truly saved my life!!!

I didn't expect to be a divorced single mom while trying to earn my degree at Ksu but that's where I found myself last year after a whole mess of things happened between my ex and I even before our son was born. I didn't shop around for a lawyer and ended up regretting my first choice. Even though it cost more to switch lawyers, when I spoke to ms Cherry over the phone (on a weekend holiday mind you)and then the very following Monday met with her about my situation, I knew I was making the right choice for my son and myself. She genuinely listens and respectfully explains how the legal divorce process custody child support etc works and how to cope with the rollercoaster of what is a divorce. She was frank with me when I needed it and helped me to get the most out of a parenting plan and custody in Cobb county through mediation and extended email conversations. She's a very gentle but firm lawyer and she seemed to know the ins and outs of the courts and judge and that made me feel more confident in the process. Plus my ex's lawyer was a hot mess and ms cherry was able to appropriately handle it without putting any more stress on the litigation which I'm sure saved us both money and time. On top of that she was affordable and worked a payment plan with me (which as a mom and college student I loved). I'd recommend her to anyone with custody divorce or child support issues.

I had an excellent experience with Diane Cherry as my divorce lawyer. She kept me informed of all my rights and choices I had and handled every situation very professionally. Even after all was done I emailed her with a concern and she followed up immediately with some advice. Hopefully I would never need a divorce lawyer again but I would certainly recommend her to anyone that does.If I had other needs that arise I would feel confident contacting her again.

The Cherry Law Firm is the BEST!!! After interviewing several family law attorneys to handle my divorce and child custody case, I came across The Cherry Law Firm. I called their office to set up a consultation meeting with Diane Cherry, and was able to speak directly to Diane over the phone. After explaining my situation to her, she gave me some suggestions on things I needed to start doing right away to help my case. From our phone conversation, I could tell that she was exactly the type of attorney that I needed to have my back, so I met with her for a consultation and hired The Cherry Law Firm on the spot. Diane wasn't pushy and I could tell that she wasn't just in this for the money. She genuinely cares! She is a very competent, assertive, and compassionate woman. My case has been going on since March of this year, and Diane has been there to reassure me the whole time. My ex-spouse was dead set on getting full custody of our children, but Diane worked diligently to get them to consider joint custody, and agree to mediation. I came away from mediation with primary custody and a good settlement, thanks to Diane! I would HIGHLY recommend calling Diane Cherry for a consultation, and you will know exactly what I mean! You won't be disappointed! I couldn't be more pleased with the choice I made in hiring The Cherry Law Firm!
