Mary Colwell provided excellent legal assistance with great communications back to me as the client. She moved the case along and provided a strategy to finalize the legal situation.
my case with mary has been very frustrating do to the lack of professionalism of the other party. While my emotions were getting the best of me, Mary stayed calm and clear of my ultimate goal in this case. She respectfully responded to the other counsel, but keeping my needs in the forefront, not needed to slander the opposing counsel or the client, unlike the opposing parties. she has been my patient angel and sounding board for me throughout this whole process, and the length of it due to the opposing parties lack of communication or action .

Mary was a great listener when it came to my frustrations of the divorce, but she guided me well and I felt comfortable with her handling of the unresponsiveness of the other counsel. I will always use Mary for all my legal needs. In fact she has already handled two real estate transactions and a new will for me.

I was having a hard time with accepting divorce.Mary is a very caring and knowledgable person.She helped me weigh the pros and cons of going to court but left the decision totally up to me.Her professional opinion was very helpful.I also think she was very on point with all responses where as my husbands lawyer just treated him like a meal ticket ( not responding,waiting till the last minute,and treating him like he wasn't that important).I would recommend her to anyone.

Divorce is a very trying time-emotionally, mentally and physically. Mary is very caring, compassionate and professional. She listens to understand your situation, priorities and goals, then crafts a strategy to deliver excellent legal representation. She has the experience and knowledge to guide you through the process. Thank you, Mary!

Mary Colwell was recommended through a friend who had recently just gone through a divorce. When we met for our first consultation, I was amazed how efficient, sympathetic and realistic she was dealing with my initial situation and separation. From there she efficiently guided me through the divorce procedure, I just received my final papers recently, and on reflection, realized that my divorce process, though difficult, was handled extremely professionally and with care.

A divorce is not a great process for anyone. This was the most difficult time for me to go through. I had many issues to go through and needed much help. Mary was amazing she held it together for me. She had everything under control and guided me through every challenge we came across. I was very impressed how she handled my case, she was very knowledgeable, professional and under control at all times, which I have much respect for.
During my case I have not received much corporation from my ex, we couldn’t come to any terms in regards to our assets, our child and the debt. We end up in court in front of the judge to decide. This is the time when you need the best lawyer on your side to represent your case and get as much as you can. Since I was the bread winner and worked for everything we had, I was very nervous of loosing what I worked for. Well that wasn’t the case I was going to settle to terms I was comfortable with and at the end I received more than what I hoped for. Mary was amazing.
I definitely would recommend Mary
Thank you Mary for everything you have done

I have hired Mary for multiple purposes in the past few years for everything from family law issues to traffic violations. Every time I feel like I am the most important client, even if it's just a traffic ticket. The level of professionalism Mary exhibits over the phone, by mail, in the office and the courtroom is exemplary and leads me back to her for all me legal needs.

Mary drafted a prenuptial agreement for my husband and me that was fair and agreeable to both of us. My husband waived his right to legal counsel, so Mary, my attorney, was in a position to cater solely to my interests while disregarding his. Rather than adopting a rabid dog attitude, she navigated this difficult territory in the spirit that my husband and I intended; she worked creatively with both of us to ensure that our document fit our needs. Not only did she treat us with professional courtesy, respect and a genuine concern for our particular situation, she was able to handle this matter quickly and thoroughly. We felt heard and well-represented. Should I need a lawyer in the future I would absolutely call her first.

Mary was sensitive and helpful in guiding me through a mediated separation and subsequent divorce. She kept me informed throughout the process and attended to the details well, without running up her billable hours unnecessarily. She brought issues to mind that I would not have anticipated before the mediation process so that I was prepared for them. Although I came armed with a list of questions and issues, she dealt with them all before I even needed to ask.
Both personable and highly professional, it was a pleasure working with her and she helped make the difficult and unpleasant process of separation and divorce a little easier and less unpleasant.
