Bardley McKnight Law is very professional and helped us understand what we were dealing with in our custody case in the State of Georgia which is very different from the legal system in Louisiana. Their online portal made it very easy to communicate, upload documents and receive comments and replies quickly and efficiently. Ms. Melaniece Bardley McKnight was very attentive to our specific needs and the circumstances in our case and moved quickly to file our case even working during the holidays. When it was revealed that we were better off filing our case in Louisiana, she quickly referred us to an attorney in Louisiana and still maintains contact with us to make sure our needs are being served. I would highly recommend Bardley McKnight to anyone who needs legal counsel in child custody and family law in Georgia.

In this season in life you need people who will go the extra mile with the utmost professionalism coupled with compassion and concern. Attorney McKnight and her entire staff went above and beyond for me. Attorney McKnight and Attorney Young advocate for what's right in the best interest of their client which in my case was my young son. They understand you are in a difficult position with high emotions and often trepidation about the legal process, however they make it their mission to guide you through every step of the way. I highly recommend Attorney McKnight and her staff without a shadow of doubt.

Attorney McKnight is the BEST!!! Completely took care of me... The staff Tori and Andrea were great as well.. I had a child support issue and I couldn't get the folks at DCSS to even listen to me. Attorney McKnight took my case and I didn't have to say one more word to the case worker. She handled everything all I did was sign the paperwork and walk away. Much love and respect for the professionalism and sense of urgency. I highly recommend this law firm!
