Family, Elder and Probate Law, from Mediation to Trial
McManaway Law, LLC

A Greenville Attorney Who Helps Area Residents with Divorce, Elder Law, Wills, Probate and Other Family-Related Legal Matters

Certified family court mediator offers firm but compassionate counsel, also defends and prosecutes domestic violence cases

Of all the areas of law, perhaps there are none more personally profound than family, elder and criminal law. These matters include the right to divorce, to visit with your children or grandchildren, to make your own decisions in old age regarding your health and your estate, and to live a life free of domestic violence and abuse.

McManaway Law, LLC is dedicated to helping South Carolinians retain their rights, reputation, freedom and dignity in these legal matters and others, providing firm but empathetic counsel and vigorous representation that respects your opinions and circumstances.

A tough litigator and an empathetic but firm mediator

McManaway Law, LLC aims to help individuals and families resolve legal matters once and for all.

Although we represent you before the court when necessary, we are also proficient in mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In fact our founder, attorney Karen McManaway, is a tough litigator in family, probate and criminal courts. She is also a certified family court mediator and has mediated more than 100 cases. We believe negotiation and mediation are kinder, gentler processes that are not only potentially easier on the psyches of participants and any children involved, but more cost-efficient than litigation.

Counseling and representing you in family law, elder law, criminal, estate and estate probate legal matters

McManaway Law, LLC focuses on the personal and family legal matters that matter to you most:

  • Family law — We help you work through family law  matters like divorce  — including alimony and division of propertyadoption, paternity and domestic abuse. And we know child custody, visitation and support inside out. Attorney McManaway is often commissioned by the court to perform as guardian ad litem, essentially acting as the judge’s investigator when a ruling must be made as to custody.
  • Elder law — We help you with many elder law issues, helping you create a will and providing such other estate planning tools as powers of attorney, guardianships, living wills and advance healthcare directives. We observe attorney-client privilege strictly and work with your adult children only when you specify.
  • Wills and probate — We assist will executors and state-appointed estate administrators in complying with estate and South Carolina probate requirements, and represent both plaintiffs and complainants in estate disputes.
  • Criminal law — We defend you against criminal charges involving DUI, drug possession and distribution, shoplifting and even traffic violations. We also represent victims of domestic violence and abuse.
