I hired maureen to assist me in a custody case. I needed to relocate with my daughter for a job opportunity. My daughters dad objected to my relocation. I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to move for my job due to all the road blocks. Maureen got the job done and won my relocation. Im so thankful.
I hired Maureen to handle my divorce case which included custody and child support. Maureen was referred to me by a family friend that used her a few years ago. I heard she had a reputation for being a "bull dog" in the courtroom. Maureen walked me through the process while explaining every detail to me along the way. She was not stuffy or stuck up like some attorneys, I could talk to her like I knew her for years. In the courtroom I could see her passion and I felt good having someone on my side that was not afraid to fight for me. I would recommend Maureen Repetto.
After having an inexperienced lawyer botch my marriage settlement agreement, custody agreement and entire divorce... Maureen took on a mess that few lawyers wanted to deal with. Her patience, time and understanding got through the mess and little by little everything fell into place. Maureen knows how to play the game. She is a great negotiator when she needs to be, and a relentless advocate and pit-bull when if need be. Maureen is familiar with many other areas of law, she is also always open and honest about what she does not know and will send you in the right direction. I am happy that luck brought me to Maureen. Watching her in action in the court room was ultimately what drove me to know who she was and talk to her. Maureen brings a wealth of knowledge of the Delaware County Court System, but she also knows the other PA counties, which is very beneficial. I would recommend her to anyone; I would never have been able to get through my ordeals without her guidance.
I used Maureen for the first time for my support hearing. My child's father intended on not showing up but I found out that he was actually in a criminal hearing in the same courthouse. Maureen went into the criminal hearing without hesitation and informed the criminal Judge that he was before that he must go to the support hearing directly after so that he can not skip out on the support hearing as he has done so many times in the past. Most attorneys would not have done that! If she did not have the guts to do that, he would not have shown up at all. My child's father has not paid support in years! Maureen asked the court to have him locked up and then he came up with some money to avoid jail. If Maureen did not have the guts to do what she did by pulling him out of his criminal hearing, nothing would have happened in my case. She even asked that he pay my counsel fees for me having to pay to file the petition for contempt. For years I have not gotten any support and the first time I used her, I got a payment. I was very happy with the outcome
Maureen is VERY difficult to get a hold of, she rarely returns your call, she doesn't seem to care about getting the job done (just getting paid). I gave her the benefit of the doubt many times and she still disappointed me each and every time. Her office is very unorganized, she takes on too many cases, and she only has one secretary to handle everything. She has hurt my case in so many ways and I will never go back to her if I need a lawyer in the future. I'd suggest looking elsewhere for a lawyer because I find her to be extremely incompetent.
