    Best of the Best!

    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.

    Just What the Doctor Ordered

    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.

    Guardian Angel with a Law degree

    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.

    Thank You Mildred Sweeney!

    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.

    Do not use

    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!!

    Mildred B. Sweeney’s response: “Kelly, I am very sorry for your dissatisfaction. The employee who took the initial call no longer works at our firm, so I have no way to verify what you were quoted. I see that you paid $175, which is what our first meeting mediation fee has been for the last 4 years. If you call our office and let us know what amount you were quoted over the phone, we will refund the difference. As far as the mediation employment contract, I have found that in my twenty years of experience that many people become overwhelmed and confused by the contract, if sent in advance. I find that it is most effective to review the paperwork at the initial meeting where I can answer all of your questions. The purpose of an initial mediation meeting is to determine if mediation fits both parties’ desires and needs, and that is the route you both wish to take. If we determine that mediation is the path that is right for everyone, we then sign the employment contract and get the process started.”

    Simply the best!

    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.

    Look elsewhere

    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.

    Very Bad Attorney. Very $$$ NO RESULTS

    She is overpriced and needs to catch up on new and current laws. Half the time she doesn't know why we are at court. She has cost us thousands of dollars and all we got in return was bad advice. You if you hire her, most likely you will pay a ton of money, and only talk her intern Dan. Fyi. If you have Judge Bubash for an upcoming case and Mildrid as your attorney. .... RUN

    Excellent Attorney for Fathers

    I hired Attorney Sweeney approximately 3 years ago and have retained her as my attorney throughout these past 3 years. In 2010 I became a father for the first time to a woman I had a brief relationship with, I was not married. I wanted to be an equal parent in my son’s life and his mother took that right from me before he was even born. It was an uphill battle and it still is but Attorney Sweeney has carried me every step of the way through this extensive legal journey. She is a very honest and compassionate attorney that has the childs best interest in mind. Attorney Sweeney has extensive knowledge and experience. She is well educated and informative of the law and has a natural drive to fight for her client’s rights as well as putting the well-being of my son first. Attorney Sweeney knows the importance of a father in a child’s life and knows a father is an equal parent just like a mother. Attorney Sweeney will continue to represent me until I am an equal parent in my son’s life.
