Received great service from Jennifer and all the staff at Mavrides Law. Knowledgeable, professional, great in communication, responses, documents preparation. Straight to the point advices. No waste of time and money. Divorce was settled before pre-trial. Recommended.
After having failed to establish equal custody with my x-wife through mediation and meeting with two other lawyers that assumed the court would not order equal custody of my four year old son to me with no rationale to why? Luckily I was fortunate enough to come across MAVRIDES Law on AAVO.
I first made contact with MAVRIDES via email and explained my goal of securing equal custody of my son. Within 24 hours Marcia Mavrides responded and gave me the confidence to continue my pursuit which eventually lead to me meeting Marcia and Jennifer Silva.
We discussed my case and although neither Marcia nor Jennifer could confirm the outcome at the time I felt comfortable and confident that I had finally identified a legal team that was compassionate with my goal of securing equal access to my son but also confident that Marcia, Jennifer and the team were competent in representing me.
Marcia and her team established that Jennifer Silva would represent me and manage communication with my x-wifes lawyer and represent me in court. From our first meeting through the final divorce, Jennifer established our goals and set expectations, clearly advised me on the law, kept communications lines open and was very responsive to questions or concerns I had going through the process. In court and with opposing counsel, Jennifer was professional, direct and relentless in her pursuit to not only help me secure equal custody of my son but also negotiated a settlement that helped us avoid trail and further unnecessary time in court and costs.
Thank you Marcia, Jennifer and team for helping me accomplish my mission when others in your profession did not believe the court would allow a father equal custody of his child.
During this very difficult time in my life, I knew my divorce was being handled properly and I was in good hands. It was one less thing for me to worry about. I knew I was in Jennifer's best interest and trusted her during the process. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend Jennifer as a lawyer.
Jennifer and team were fantastic. I was not satisfied with my original counsel. Then I turned to Jennifer and team. It was a decision that ultimately proved extremely wise. Jennifer was extremely knowledgeable about the various issues at hand. Jennifer was persistent when the situation called for it with opposing counsel. Once when we entered settlement negotiations, Jennifer did an excellent job of setting my expectations and the team did a fantastic job of delivering the results I was looking for. Most importantly, her responsiveness was top notch. Whether we leveraged e-mail or conference calls, I was never left waiting for responses.
It's with GREAT PLEASURE that I write this review.
I've been working with Mavrides Law since my initial consultation back in December of 2011. From my first conversation with Marcia, I knew the connection we made was one that was first and foremost all about my daughter's future.
She not only spent over an hour with me on the call to learn about my specific situation, but her knowledge of family law in the state of MA was evident from the beginning: and if you're going to fight for shared parenting, you need the best of the best when it comes to knowledge...
Everything Marcia or Jennifer explained would happen throughout this arduous/emotional/frustrating process happened like clock work. Their advice was always in the best interest of my daughter. They were candid and blunt about what to expect and put things plainly so that I can make the best possible decision for my daughter.
Fast forward 1 yr and 4 months from when I actually retained their services.
I've recently been blessed and awarded 50% shared custody (legal & physical) of my daughter, and that was all due to not only their firms experience, but also to the dedicated team they have assembled at Mavrides Law.
Marcia & Jennifer were diligent, hard working, empathetic, and just plain awesome to work with throughout this process....Working with them together was like working with a pitcher/catcher duo that is unmatched. I couldn't be more blessed to have connected with them both. If ever I need anything regarding family law again, Mavrides Law is on my speed dial: plain and simple.
Their support team, Alana and Liz were also incredible to work with. Always pleasant, professional, and just all around great people.
It's apparent that everyone at Mavrides Law is all about the children...Really, they are!
In closing, while I don't wish the custody battle process on anyone, if you are ever faced with the decision to hire a family law attorney in Massachusetts, Mavrides Law should be on your list of first options.
My step father use to say to me, you get what you pay for, and while Mavrides Law may not be the least expensive firm out there, Mavrides Law is worth their weight in Gold.
My daughter and I are forever indebted to them all!
