Never return calls or emails. Total waste of money. after our first emergency hearing that we lost, I was never told there were steps we could of taken to help my case, I was then passed to Heather her associate and more of the same, No answers to phone calls or emails My child support reduction papers were never filed. after repeat phone calls and emails that were unanswered the front desk clerk told me I could file them my self???? Why did I hire this firm if I should do their work? I have wasted almost a year paying child support to my ex who the courts think I only have my son every other weekend but we have a 50/50 split. My ex abandoned our son for 7 weeks and she was no where to be found, and I tried to get ahold of Heather to ask what we can do, and I'm still waiting for that return phone call.

I met with Mildred seeking mediation with my soon to be ex wife and she just wasted time, had no agenda, couldn't get anything done. Don't go to consult or use this lawyer in a matter of Diviorce or separation.
She had no problem taking my money and even asked me about my finances to see if I could pay for a divorce.

I have heard that Divorce is a very difficult experience. Sweeney Law Offices made this a very painless process, they helped me all the way thru this very trying time and gave me invaluable advise. They are very professional, very Helpful and always available when I needed them. Thank you very much, I really appreciate all you did for me during my divorce. I highly recommend the Sweeney Law Offices

Attorney Sweeney truly is an amazing person and brilliant attorney. I found her to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable during one of the most difficult times of my life. And, not only was she supportive and caring to my situation, but she knows the law and had my best interest and that of my children, at heart. Before I came to Attorney Sweeney, I sought legal counsel from an attorney that was more convenient to where I live. It was a costly and disheartening mistake. I am so glad that I found my way to Sweeney law offices.

In this extremely emotional and stressful case our attorney, Mildred Sweeney, was hired to help us get specific visitation to see our Grandchildren. She is a straight shooter, she doesn't sugar coat anything. You know that with the court system nothing is guaranteed, but after our appointments with Attorney Sweeney we were confident she understood what we wanted and aggressively worked our case. Although, she has a tough exterior she was sympathetic to our needs and to the concerns we had for our Grandchildren's health and happiness. We now have designated visits and vacation time with our precious Grandchildren.

If you are serious about protecting or even having to save your grandchildren from their parents/step-parents, you can find no better ally than Mildred Sweeney.
Over the last four years she devised and led a legal challenge that not only saved our grandchild from a surgically implanted feeding tube but gave us legally guaranteed visitation in Pennsylvania and beyond. At almost every step of the way, she warned us that we probably “didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell”, but somehow she overcame those odds.
Mildred does not give false hope nor does she avoid discussing the difficult choices that have to be made. She does investigate all the laws involved and searches for support whenever it is needed. We were serious about the welfare of our grandchild and thanked God that we found Mildred.

You will not find a more aggressive advocate for the rights of your children than Mildred Sweeney. She is a zealous advocate for her clients and her fees are very good for such an experienced attorney. I would recommend her to anyone who has any type of family law issue. She is the best. I owe her a lot more than this review.

Was charged way more than I was quoted over the phone for a divorce mediation meeting. Was given a large packet of materials to read and complete at the meeting to waste time and money. This information should have been forwarded to us prior to the meeting so it could be completed beforehand. Instead our initial and only meeting was spent filling out paperwork instead of discussing the actual mediation process. Just found out today that a friend of mine had the exact same experience!!

We turned to Mildred to help with a very complex custody matter in Allegheny County. She was not the least expensive attorney we contacted but the most passionate about our case. She was able to help us work a miracle and gain custody in what we thought was a hopeless situation. Thank you Mrs. Sweeney.

Front office staff frequently messed up appointments, sent document out with incorrect information including case numbers. Many times had to wait over a week to get a response to email or call back and when she was running late never got any update or courtesy call. She is knowledgeable however not responsive or proactive in handling a case. Frequently when going in for meetings she was unprepared.
