FAMILY LAW • DIVORCE ATTORNEY • PENSACOLA, FL
CARING FOR FLORIDA FAMILIES
Here at MGM Law, P.A., we have been caring for families in Pensacola and the surrounding areas since 2014. Whether you need help starting the divorce process, securing fair child support from your spouse or the other parent, or just obtaining legal advice, our divorce attorneys are here to help.
Mary McDaniel and her team are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for each client. We know the decision to file for divorce or fight for child custody can be incredibly stressful. Because of this, we work hard to minimize difficulty for you and move cases through the courts quickly. If we can resolve your case outside of court, we will help you understand your options so that you can decide what’s best for you and your family.
If your case can benefit from mediation, negotiation, or a collaborative divorce process, we will do our best to pursue that option. In cases that can only be resolved at trial, our divorce lawyers will represent you and fight for your rights aggressively. At MGM Law, P.A., we know no two cases are alike. Instead, we work to find unique solutions that fit your individual needs and circumstances. Let us help you navigate this difficult time in your life.

Family Law and a skilled Divorce Lawyer in Pensacola
Mary McDaniel and the family law team at MGM Law, P.A. take the time to understand your situation thoroughly — not just where you are now, but how you got here, and what your goals are for the future. We want to understand you as a person - not just the details of your case.
At your consultation with Mary, she will explain the collaborative process to you. Together, you can decide if that process is right for you. If not, she’ll be happy to guide you through other options. Collaborative law seeks to help families resolve disputes without resorting to litigation. The process allows separating spouses to modify child support or timesharing in a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect, rather than combatively.
Our team ensures that the collaborative process is both confidential and transparent. Each party is represented by an attorney trained in the collaborative divorce process. All negotiations are facilitated by a qualified mental health professional or a Florida Supreme Court certified mediator.
The collaborative process emphasizes personal privacy, which is often the first casualty of a traditional divorce. Nothing is filed in the court's docket until both parties have agreed to all language in the Marital Settlement Agreement.
Within this structure, the parties reach a mutual agreement through cooperation, rather than unnecessarily delaying the process with needless litigation. The collaborative process seeks to move both parties through the divorce or modification process faster than traditional litigation. This, in turn, saves both parties money, time, and emotional distress.

"After a fair amount of research I came to the conclusion that Ms.McDaniel was the most qualified for me to take my divorce case to. ...I would highly recommend her for a swift and professional experience! As an active duty military member this has been some of the best legal treatment I've encountered during my service. I would rate higher than 5 stars if able."

"Ms. McDaniel knew just what to do. I was in a custody mess. She stepped in and quickly took every step necessary to keep my family from falling apart. She was financially reasonable and treated me like I was her top priority. She kept me informed every step of the way. She is the only one I will ever trust to handle my legal needs. Hands down the best attorney ever!"

"After struggling with custody issues, I felt so desperate. I spoke w many “big dog” attorneys in the area, so tired of the big dog attitude, I just wanted someone who at least acted like they cared! I hit the jackpot, not only did she act like she cared she absolutely made me feel cared about. She was professional and caring and very supportive. I was so relieved and shocked to have been able to find her. I drove away feeling relieved and knowing I had someone who cared and on my side."
