    • I recommend Linda MacElree.
    • I hired Linda more than 3 years ago.
    • Linda handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was fortunate to have Lynn MacElree represent me in my divorce proceeding. I found both Lynn, and her staff, to be caring and compassionate at a very difficult time. Every matter was handled in an efficient and professional way. Lynn is well organized, diligent in her filings, and easily reachable; which was very important to me. Lynn's attention to detail and excellent preparation during many court appearances, resulted in a positive outcome for me and my children. She is highly respected within the law community. Lynn was recommended to me by a Philadelphia law firm and I agree wholeheartedly with their recommendation.

    • I recommend Linda MacElree.
    • I hired Linda more than 3 years ago.
    • Linda handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Having represented me during my recent divorce, Ms. MacElree's conduct, professionalism and advice were excellent, and she took the time to display genuine care for my personal well being. Ms. MacElree's work was timely and responsive to my needs, while always mindful to provide sound practical advice. She provides expert legal services with fairness and integrity and I would not hesitate to have Lynn as my attorney if needed in the future.

    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Having retained Linda's services for over 15 years, I have always found her advice and representation second to none! I have and will continue to refer her to anyone looking to retain legal guidance.

    Ms. MacElree was my attorney throughout my divorce and she not only provided outstanding legal advice, she also showed interest in me as a person and I felt that she cared about how I was coping with the divorce process. Lynn was accepting of what I was trying to accomplish, even though it was not something that she would have done. She gave me legal advice throughout my mediation and never advised me to become more litigious (even though she would have more to gain financially if I did). In other words, she held my hand throughout the process, gave me the insight I needed to make decisions and never let any potential financial motive on her part dictate how my case was handled. She came highly recommended to me by many people who have used her, and as importantly, by people within the county's family court system. Now I know why, and knowing what I know, I wouldn't hesitate to have Lynn as my attorney. In fact, I would demand it (but hopefully I won't need her services again).

    • I do not recommend Linda MacElree.
    • I hired Linda more than 3 years ago.
    • Linda handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    My experience with this attorney was quite contrary to the previous poster's. In my opinion, Ms. MacElree's billable rate is incredibly high. She does little to try and settle her cases and instead allows them to drag on and on. I do not believe she is ana dvocate of mediation. In my own humble opinion, she is more concerned with her billable rate and steady salary - footed by her clients - then in settling expeditiously. I would recomend her only If you are looking for a long, drawn out process and to spend a lot more money than need necessitates. If, on the other hand, you are looking to wrap up your case quickly, fairly and to move on with your life, I suggest you save yourself some money, invest in your children's college funds and take your business elsewhere.

      Omitted two words "without regard" Should have been "Lynn will fight without regard to your last dollar." She is a competent and effective attorney. You get what you pay for these days and she gets it done.

    • I recommend Linda MacElree.

    I have just recommended yet another friend in need of excellent legal advice to Linda MacElree, Esq, in West Chester PA. I have had the privilege of working with her in two separate legal problems over the years. On a child custody issue, which became very emotional and drawn-out, she remained calm and positive, reassuring me all along the way. We ended up in court twice, winning both times. She is highly respected by the West Chester legal community.
    I have known Lynn as a friend and lawyer for over twenty years. That is a long time. If you want a shark lawyer, while that's not her personality, I can assure you she will be a formidable force to deal with. She will not back down. You are in good hands.
