I was absolutely blessed to have Deb McKenty represent me in my recent divorce. She was referred to me by a friend who also had a great experience. Her knowledge and experience helped me in numerous ways, she saw problems before they happened and told me how to handle them before it was a problem to me. I trusted her completely because I know she held my best interests at heart... in the "long run". I recommend Deb to all of my friends who are in the same position, I even keep her business cards in my purse. When I put my faith in the hands of Deb McKenty, I lost all fear of getting divorced. I could tell when we were in court that she had the respect of the judges, which made me breathe easier. Deb got me a great settlement and everything worked out so much better than I had ever dreamed.
A friend of mine saw my ex and he told he "he got out-maneuvered " in court! Thank you , Deb McKenty, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
Deborah McKenty represented me when I was purchasing my home. She maintained contact with the realtors, answered all of the legal questions I had, and came to a last minute rescheduled closing with me. At the closing she walked me through what I needed to do, and explained all of what I was signing. I completely trust her knowledge of the law, and felt very supported purchasing a home with her support.
We had to rely on her from out-of-state, and she responded to our calls and emails promptly and thoroughly. She was acutely attentive to the complexities of our case, and proved to be very knowledgeable. Generally, she has a pleasant, warm and inviting demeanor, but she demonstrated a dynamic personality as it became necessary in response to the opposing attorney. Also, her staff was very helpful. She was definitely the right attorney for our job.
Your best bet is to keep looking. This lawyer is not worth her pricey hourly rate. A simple real estate deal went sour, loosing me thousands of dollars, due to missed deadlines & sloppy contract work.
Poor attitude as well.
