I first hired Attorney Maclay in early 2003 to handle my custody case. Our case has lasted for years, not due to issues with my lawyer, but issues with my ex. Attorney Maclay and the rest of the law firm have stood by our side through all of our ups and downs. From the beginning, she has been very straight forward to me about how the processes would work, our chances of succeeding, and which battles to fight verses which battles to concede to. In the darkest times of my frustration with the system, her ability to keep a calm and collected environment allowed me to refocus on what I needed to do to ensure my child came home with as little issues as possible.
Through the eight years that Attorney Maclay has handled my case, she has believed in her work. She has believed in the case. She has believed in the better life we sought for my child. Through her dedication to my family, she has become a part of our family; something you may not find in many attorneys. You will be hard pressed to find another attorney who dedicates their time to each and every case the way Attorney Maclay does.

- Henry The Sixth, Part 2 Act 4, scene 2
Divorce is a traumatic time for anyone. Lindsay's professionalism and knowledge of the law and its application to my specific situation were crucial to my ability concentrate on the facts and not my emotions. My case was handled quickly and efficiently, allowing me to get on with the business of living. I appreciated her consideration of my time and resources and would call her in a minute if the need arose.
Attorney Maclay is honest and straightforward. Many times during my case I contacted her about details written in the Custody Stipulation. She always told me her opinion and helped me make the best decisions my children - even if they weren't what I originally thought. I respect the fact that she was willing to point out both sides/choices even if one choice wasn't "in my favor". I would recommend her (and I already have many times) to anyone!!!
