What Our Clients Say About Justin Mauney
Justin has been outstanding in his counsel regarding my case. The decision to divorce is always a difficult one and when children are involved it severely complicates matters. Justin has proven to be exceptional in his advice, his grace, and his guidance. His knowledge of family law is surpassed only by his ability to negotiate with extremely difficult people. It is my experience that you truly care about the law and the people you serve over the “holy dollar” that accompanies your counsel. My ex-wife and I will continue to have our difficulties but our children are doing much better due in large part to the legal assistance provided by Justin.”
Justin’s swift attention to my legal needs surpassed my expectations. He recognized the urgency of my situation and dealt swiftly and decisively with the court to affect a favorable outcome for me. I highly recommend this firm as I was treated so professionally and personally at the same time.”
When I was going through a very difficult time in my marriage, a friend recommended that I contact Wake Family Law Group. I met with Justin Mauney to collect information and learn about my rights and what to expect if I were to get divorced. He was very up front with what to expect, told me not to take divorce lightly and did not push me into pursuing divorce. When I was ready to separate, it was a very high conflict and high stress situation. Justin was amazingly supportive, gave me great advice and always looked out for the best interests of me and my children. Truthfully he fought harder for me than I was able to do for myself at that time. He served as a true expert on the law and was very realistic. Justin also had a great knack of anticipating issues likely to arise in the future and put measures in place to handle them early in the process. In addition, he was also surprisingly helpful in providing in general advice, much like the support of a friend. I have recommended Justin to many people and will continue to do so. I have received positive feedback from them too! I am extremely grateful that he was the person I chose to represent me and know that I could not have picked anyone better!”
