    • I do not recommend Maureen Pineau.
    • I hired Maureen 1-3 years ago.
    • Maureen handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ms. Pineau refused to do what I asked and we were continually in Court. She filed motions, orders to show cause and expended and exhausted my funds. When I was out of money, she refused to do any further work on what I thought was a straightforward case until I could pay her more. I gave her a substantial retainer and her continued objection to everything COST ME EVERYTHING. She did what SHE WANTED, not what I wanted. The Judge on several occasions yelled at her in Court.I would never recommend her.

    • I recommend Maureen Pineau.
    • I hired Maureen 6-12 months ago.
    • Maureen handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Attorney Pineau was well worth our time and money. She is a no non-sense, straight-to-the-point, relentless attorney who will fight for justice. She represented me for a complicated custody and relocation case with great determination. Her knowledge of law and practice in her field is exceptional. She was aware that retaining her was outside our financial safe zone and she was willing to help us cut back on nickle n' dime expenses; which meant more work for me. It all paid off in the end. Highly recommended for those seeking honest justice.

    Maureen helped us all the way to getting custody of my grandson. She was helpful in instructing us concerning the law and very honest with us as we moved thru the legal system. I highly recommend her.

    Maureen is smart and fearless. She understands the law completely and will represent you during what could possibly be one of the worst times of your life. If you are going through a divorce or a painful custody fight, contact her. She navigated me through a complicated and ugly court battle and she did everything she could to help me win my case. Plus, she was completely fair with me. Maureen gets right to the point and takes care of business, honestly.

    Maureen is a honest, no nonsense attorney who led me through a divorce in the 90's. I felt she listened to my requests, guided me though reality and served my interests.
