My ex-girlfriend ran away to another state with our 2 month old baby girl. Maggi's aggressive representation forced her return within two days. I'm extremely happy to be reunited with my daughter.
I thought as a man I could never win custody, however we won a 50/50 parenting schedule, with me being designated as the parent of primary residence!
I know that representing women must be very easy, but Maggi gave me an honest assessment of my case, and said that she could help...she did!
Maggi is very prompt with her responses and available by email almost 24/7...which was very helpful to me. Any question or concern that arose I was able to get resolution on immediately. She charges a flat fee, and even though I emailed her quite a bit, she didn't charge me extra because of the flat fee.
I highly recommend Maggi!
I recently went through a divorce and custody situation that had the potential to get ugly, but did not. I talked to a couple of lawyers in the beginning and felt like they were salesman trying to sell their services. Maggi made me feel like a client should ... confident you hired the right lawyer. She was very upfront and to the point, attentive, and informative. She's a true professional and I will continue to recommend her services.
Recently I went thru a very bitter divorce. My ex-wife pulled a lot of nasty tricks and her lawyer seemed determined to drag the case out as long as possible (and increase her bill). Maggi fought very hard for me and was able to help bring this nightmare to an end. Maggi is very upfront, ethical, and honest. I trust Maggi and have referred her to friends.
AFTER a disappointing experience with my first A lawyer, I searched For Maggi. She WAS extremely responsible and attentive to my case, bravely fought for my rights and for sure I will search it again.
After being dissatisfied time and time again with the progress of my case, someone referred me to Maggi Khalil. From the moment I retained her, my family and I felt that things have finally changed in our favor. She aggressively fought for us with her knowledge, passion, and dedication to her work. She was extremely fair and we did not have an ounce of regret or doubt in her ability to get the job done. I highly recommend Maggi Khalil to anyone in need of a lawyer in her field of expertise and I am grateful and honored to have worked with such an exceptional person.
I retained Ms. Khalil in ~ Feb of 2012 and over a seven month period, she worked very hard in a very intensive divorce settlement case. She provided the professionalism, the take charge attitude, intelligence, and legal knowledge all at a time when needed. Ms. Khalil pressed and negotiated the things I wanted and thought was fair. She also made recommendations for items I hadn’t considered due to the emotional strain of the pending divorce. When it was all said and done, Ms. Khalil had gotten me everything I wanted to my complete satisfaction. If you are looking for an aggressive attorney who takes their clients seriously, fights for their rights, and doesn’t make false promises but rather truthful guidance and expectations, Maggi Khalil should be your choice. I highly recommend her for any of your legal matters in her area of expertise.
Having practiced domestic & family law in New York myself, I interviewed several lawyers who were referred to me to handle my second divorce before I retained Ms. Khalil. I carefully scrutinized her skills and talents throughout the divorce procedings. Ms. Khalil's knowledge and agressiveness was equal to the effort she employed in protecting and obtaining my rights and interests and, although I knew she had a large case-load for a single practioner, I never once felt that I was not her only client when we would confer on my case. Most lawyers take on a case with an eye towards a speedy settlement because they dred the courtroom. Conversely, Ms. Khalil prepares your case as if it going to go to trial right from day one. That's the mark of a talented lawyer, believe me, I know. Her skills out-matched my wife's lawyer so overwhelmingly that I will be receiving alimony from my wife, a portion of her pention and repayment of some of my legal fees as well. I couldn't ask for a better result than that. Ms. Khalil is one of those few lawyer I'm glad I never had to face-off against in my career (and I had a reputation as an excellent lawyer in New York City and Long Island.) I most highly recommend her services in her stated areas of law without any doubt whatsoever.
I was so glad I found this lawyer. Not only did she help me prepare for my case in as thorough a manner as possible but she listened to me attentively and explained to me my options as clearly as possibly and prepared me for my case very well while paying particular attention to those details which she believed would assist me. She even advised me on what to expect in court but encouraged me not to be afraid. While in court I was very apprehensive and scared thus I found it hard to speak but she was there to calm me down and assist me in explaining my situation. Not to mention, I had shopped around other lawyers before settling on her and trust me, fees-wise, she definately had the most reasonable rates under the given circumstances.I would not hesitate in recomending her to anyone
Maggie took my case from another attorney that wasn't treating me as a client, she handled the case perfectly, was attentive to my issues and resolved everything to my extreme satisfaction. I felt totally at ease working with her and completely trusted her handling my case.
Maggi's handling of my case was superb. The opposing lawyer kept my billing to max.
