Marcia and her associates were outstanding in representing my side of a divorce case, and the final judgment was favorable for me. In looking for an attorney I sought someone who was experienced, highly competent, and yet also someone who I found trustworthy and who cared about the details of my case. This is not as easy a combination to find in one lawyer as one might think. Her office did meticulous research on my case and was highly responsive to inquiries and feedback. Her fees were reasonable and more than commensurate with the work done. I would recommend Marcia without reservation to anyone who needs a lawyer to represent himself or herself in the areas of divorce or family law.

Attorney Mavrides was a steady and calm presence during the most trying time in my life. She consistently offered a clearly experienced overview of the law, with compassion for my individual situation. She and her staff listened to my concerns and worked very hard to attain a satisfactory outcome for me. I would recommend Attorney Mavrides without reservation.

Marcia's team was immediately responsive to my request for an initial consultation, and I had one set up for that same week. Meeting with Marcia eased my anxiety about the divorce process (it can seem daunting at first)-- she is obviously extremely knowledgeable and given her experience, I immediately trusted her advice (which turned out to be GREAT advice). I have also met with her associate Jen, who was fantastic-- she is quick, and obviously has a lot of experience.
I have recommended Mavrides Law to friends and colleagues who have had to deal with divorce and child custody issues. I really appreciated all Marcia and Jen have done for me.

Thank you and your expert team (Katie Kerr, in particular) for representing me in my recent Divorce Modification case. I could not have asked for more competent representation and a better outcome. The outcome was a direct result of the professionalism, proficiency, efficiency and effectiveness of you and your team.
As we walked through the court building, it was easy to see the respect you have earned with your peers, court officers and judges. I'm sure this is largely due to your easy-going, friendly and professional manner........... you have a great way with people, and as a client, this is very reassuring. You have a profound strategic ability and displayed great judgment at just the right times. Indeed you showed an uncanny ability to think quickly on your feet with very little input. You were always very well prepared and produced well documented, articulate and comprehensive arguments in your court memorandums. Quite honestly, I believe this was a significant reason our opposition came to the table so quickly to negotiate.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I greatly admire your toughness, sense of fairness and unyielding sense of ethics. I'm sure these traits are what have gotten you to where you are and will serve you well in the future. A client could ask for nothing more. I am eternally grateful you were on my side (and not opposing counsel!) and that you worked so hard and diligently on my behalf. Thank you!
Best wishes for continued success, and if there is anything I can do for you in the future, please do not hesitate to call.
Warm Personal Regards,

Thanks to Marcia Mavrides, my daughter Eva is part of my life. More importantly, I am a part of her life, growth, development, and rearing each week.
I will forever be disappointed that Eva's Mother deprived me of even modest and/or reasonable interactions with my daughter during our daughter's first two years of life. YET, I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL to Marcia and her team at Mavrides Law, whom in the end: reunited me with my daughter just after her second birthday.
Aside from being a probate "Ninja," Marcia is equitable, compassionate, and often fun to watch.
Oftentimes, Marcia and I found ourselves in Court on Mondays at 8:30 a.m. On each instance (however frivolous), either she or her associate Jennifer was there. And while not always apparent to me (at the time), Marcia's ethical, reasonable, and logical arguments, as well as her clear advocacy for "the best interest of my child" either carried the day or laid the requisite groundwork to do so in the future.
The greatest moment I ever witnessed -- and I watch Law & Order every day -- was early on, when my ex-wife, ex-wifeâ€™s attorney, Marcia and I had a 4-way meeting. For the initial 15 minutes, my ex-wifeâ€™s attorney proceeded to slander me, and introduce incomplete facts. Marcia just nodded and made notations on her legal pad. After my ex-wifeâ€™s attorney had introduced all of her alleged "evidence," Marcia proceeded to SYSTEMATICALLY DISMANTLE everything. Each point, rules of evidence, inadmissible, hearsay, the word I learned that day was "QUASH."
It got to the point where my ex-wifeâ€™s attorney (in her own office mind you) was refusing to answer, much the less parry, ANY OF Marcia's questions and/or respective interrogations. Yet it was likely during those moments of Marcia's thumping, that I ultimately realized that "giving the wheel over to Marcia" was the right decision.
Most likely, divorce will be the worst experience of your life. If you have children, remove the "most likely" and expect the worst - particularly if you are a Dad in Massachusetts. Every divorced Dad, I spoke to said: "just give up!" But regardless of the odds, I had to be able to look my daughter in the eye (and myself in the mirror) and know for certain that I did everything possible. You don't really get a second chance!
Thanks to Marcia's guidance, each weekend that I spend with my daughter obviates what to most may seem like a the Pyrrhic Victory.
Finally, I never once felt as though any of Mavrides Law's invoices were EVER inflated or unreasonable.
Furthermore, while Marica is the guru, I quickly discovered that two of her associates, Jennifer + Katie were great as well. Marcia has a proficient and dedicated team. Frequently, at 6 p.m. on a Friday night -- when expecting to leave a message -- either Jennifer or Katie would answer my call. I would be pleasantly surprised and I have come to realize that such efforts are why Marcia and her team are so successful.

Marcia is truly an expert in her field. I was very anxious about the divorce process, and did not know where to begin. Despite my complex situation, Marcia was able to help me find clarity while fighting to get me what I deserved. I have since recommended her to my closest friends.

I had retained Attorney Mavrides to represent me in a continuation of a divorce. She handled all aspects of the issues in an assertive, proactive manner that moved the matter along to a very good result.
I reccomend her to anyone that needs such legal assistance. In my opinion she was able to provide great legal representation at a fair and moderate cost.

Most family court judges will tell you that divorce is like a business transaction. However, it took me some time (and several divorce attorneys) to realize that divorce is more like a tumor that needed to be taken out as soon as possible and before it has spread. You need a good attorney who can do the "surgery" fast and with as little pain as possible. Marcia is that kind of attorney. She gently brought my expectations to a reasonable level. She was always available and returned my calls/emails promptly. Billing was more than fair. Most importantly, she is the closer. And that is what you need in a divorce, - a closure.

As a former client of Marcia Mavrides I feel qualified to guarantee satisfaction from her expertise. Having been through a nasty divorce, Marcia rose above the debauchery and was able to gracefully and skillfully advocate for me. Her ability to alleviate my stress was just as important as her ability to win in court and guide me through a difficult time. I would recommend Marcia to anyone who wishes to exit from a divorce in a graceful and satisfactory way.

Marcia was absolutely awesome to work with. She explained everything in detail and handled everything in a timely manner. She worked closely with me so that we were able to work out a deal that was fair to everyone. All through the process, she made me feel like I truly had someone “on my side.” The billing was more than fair as well (there were many short phone calls that never appeared on a bill…) I would highly recommend her.
