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.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
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. Iíve 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 Iíve 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!!!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

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.

If you are a male or female in need of a great attorney then definitely give Diane Cherry a call. She is efficient and will work on your case quickly. She is honest and will tell it like it is. Not beating around the bush. I like that. I highly recommend her services. Give her a call, you'll be glad you did. I'm glad I did. Rodney Vincent

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 wonít be disappointed! I couldn't be more pleased with the choice I made in hiring The Cherry Law Firm!

My one and only involvement with the Cobb County Judicial system involved my attorney telling me that "Everybody lies. Policemen lie. Victims lie. Criminals lie. Lawyers lie", including him. I cannot tell you what a breath of life Diane Cherry and her office of professional and caring people bring to that dark cloud of suspicion regarding honesty and credibility. Diane is by far the best I have ever met: knowledgeable, kind, fair, and the picture of integrity. For any situation, especially family matters, I know there is not a better attorney to be found. Thank you Diane and Team.

I rarely write reviews online, but I felt that the service provided by The Cherry Law Firm was nothing less than outstanding and definitely deserves a review. Choosing Diane Cherry to represent me on a DUI charge was one of the best decisions of my life. Literally. During a difficult time with implications that can be so wide-reaching Diane brought a calm, confident, and positive presence every step of the way. Her knowledge on DUI law and her willingness to look at my case details in depth from start to finish certainly paid off. My case was dismissed and I can't thank Diane enough. She is a true professional at what she does. Kevin K. Marietta,GA

Diane Cherry is an excellent Attorney who is very professional and ethical. I was very happy with the outcome of my divorce/child custody case. Mrs. Cherry did a brilliant job in court presenting my case and had excellent arguments to the opposing Attorney so I was able to get custody of my kids.

Diane Cherry is the most attentive, informative, understanding, and honest attorney I have ever met. I am happy to say my experience was nothing like what I heard about. Diane makes sure you understand your case, what you are up against, your options, what she feels is the best route to proceed with based on your situation and sets your expectations going forth with the case. She handles each case based on the person. I know this because she takes the time to get to know you and asks about your background. She wants to get to know you so she can better understand your situation and help you make the best decision. When I had no clue what to do or who to turn to I simply used the google search engine and The Cherry Law Firm was the first listed amongst a number of other law firms. I called and had a brief discussion with Diane and made an appointment to meet with her. On the drive out to her office I realized how far from my home she was which initially I check before going anywhere. Once I arrived at The Cherry Law Firm escorted to a private conference room to meet with Diane and her colleague. I knew at that very instant I made the right decision. I am not proud of the mistake I made but I am proud to be represented by The Cherry Law Firm. Thinking back on the drive out to The Cherry Law Firm and how many times I tried to convince myself to turn around I am more than happy that I did not turn around. I am truly blessed to have The Cherry Law Firm by my side.

A KSU colleague recommended me Diane Cherry. I believe that Diane is one of the best attorneys in the state. Smart, well-articulated, pragmatic, proactive, Diane was superb in court defending my case. Diane did a phenomenal job when she cross-examined my ex's witnesses to the point that their testimonies rather helped my case. She wrote very solid proposals for the judge. Diane's high standards are well-known in the community and she has a high reputation among judges. If you are a good person, Diane is your right partner. I won the custody of my child!

I've never been in any legal trouble in my life, not even a ticket. However last year my husband and I found ourselves facing some very serious charges. Having never been in trouble the whole legal system was overwhelming and confusing. Mrs. Cherry came to the jail the morning of my arrest. In the midst of the scariest and most confusing moments of my life she was a calm reassuring voice of guidance. She explained everything concisely while not making any false promises. The following morning after my release I was in her office Mrs. Cherry was prepared and on the case. Through out the months and numerous court dates her and her amazing staff where in constant contact with me. I was always completely prepared and feeling supported by her and her knowledgable team. Since my case has ended many have been surprised at the amazing out come, this was due to Mrs Cherry's tireless work on my case and my husbands. The legal system is scary territory to navigate, Mrs. Cherry knows these daunting waters and will get you to safe land.
