Mrs. Mehaffie did an excellent job with my divorce, and her friendly demeanor is what sets her above and beyond other lawyers. Anytime I had a question or a problem it was addressed immediately. All my family still resides in Pennsylvania along with friends, everyone knows of my divorce and asks me "I need a lawyer, who do you recommend", my response is always "Mrs. Mehaffie".
Debra handled my case with the utmost professionalism from the very start. The two most noteworthy characteristics were her ability to keep me informed of my case as they happened and she responded quickly and knowledgably to my questions. And, trust me, I had a LOT of them! Once I provided her with all the information and evidence for my custody case, she was able use her skill to help me win my case. Have you ever heard of an out-of-state-father winning custody of his child at just ten weeks old? Now you have thanks to Debra.
I highly recommend her for any family law case in Pennsylvania. The jurisdiction may have change to state in which my child and I now reside but I continue to send her updates and pictures of my child.
Thank you again, Debra!!
Ms. Mehaffie is representing me in my divorce. I knew quickly during our initial consult that she was a top-notch, knowledgeable, no-nonsense attorney, which was what I needed. She has been sufficiently compassionate given my specific life circumstances, and simultaneously does not dwell on the emotional aspects of my situation, but focuses on the legal aspects. She has provided solid advice, explaining divorce and custody law in a lucid and sensible way, and she has always made herself available to me. In addition, she does not and would not back down from the toughest of adversaries, which makes her above average.
Deb has gone above and beyond in my case - a most difficult one. Her advice to me has been spot on and our level of success has been beyond my expectations. She has always taken the time to explain issues to me and listens to my concerns and opinions. Beyond that, she has added support from a personal standpoint that makes me consider her my friend as well as my attorney.
Ms. Mehaffie is on top of her game. While I understand that any client's case is their own priority and any attorney has several cases at any time; Deb never misses any detail. Nothing slips by her! I am very comforted to have her as my attorney. She knows the law, is aggressive when it is necessary, and really takes a personal interest in her clients and their best interests. She answers my questions with clear, to the point answers. I would recommend her highly.
