I'm going through a pretty sticky custody case right now, I tried for months to handle it Pro Se, but after my pendente lite hearing I knew I would need help. David had already answered most of the the questions I've asked on Avvo.com, so it only made sense to hire him as my attorney. The initial consultation was supposed to be only 30 minutes, but our conversation went nearly 2 hours(which he did not bill me for mind you). He is very informative, and after every conversation you will leave knowing WAY more about law and life than you did before. I'd recommend David Mahood to anyone(especially dads) dealing with custody issues.

I got help from David Mahood regarding an employment dispute for unpaid wages. He effectively and efficiently resolved my issue and I quickly got my unpaid wages paid to me! I appreciated his knowledge and ability to get fast results. I recommend him to other people who want an honest and knowledgeable attorney.

I came across Mr. Mahood by searching the internet for high profile attorneys that handle custody and divorce. Mr. Mahood’s experience and knowledge of the law has been extremely helpful. I am currently going through my divorce, his experience and wisdom is so helpful. If you are looking for someone who will tell the truth and keep it straight, you have found that right attorney. We all have unexpected issues that come up in life and Mr. Mahood would be a great person to have on your team. He is dedication to his clients and has wisdom that has helped me with normal life issues.

I have had the worst experience ever with David Mahood. I felt abused from the first moment I worked with him and threatened throughout the very brief period I worked with him. He is not knowledgeable and would make phone calls to clients and talk for hours and then charge you these hours as if you consulted him, which does not make any sense.

I was served with an Ex-parte and didn't know what to do so I waited, for my surprise the judge granted the father his petition to enroll my daughter in his school district and that would mean that eventually my daughter was going to live with her father so I called couple lawyers in the area and I get no respond. My close friend knew Mr. Mahood since she lost contact with him from while back, she searched on the net and found Mr. Mahood's email, sent an email. To my surprise, he responded right away. Mr Mahood called her and we started explaining what was going on with my case. Since his office was not located in the State of California, He listened carefully as we talked for couple hours on the phone. After that long talk, he mention that he was willing to review all my court papers that I was served with, helped me with my court's hearing, declaration and do and ex-parte for a affordable flat fee, including the airfare,and the trip's expenses. He flew from Maryland to California and stay for a week to accomplish what we agreed over the phone. Mr Mahood spent large amount of time talking to the other party's attorney, gathering information and the most important thing preparing the response to the father allegations. I really like the way Mr Mahood approched the father's allegations. Mr. Mahood took the time to think and gather thoughts to respond to father's allegation, since the father tried to denigrate me, Mr Mahood made sure that the judge knew the kind and loving mother I was and I am to my daughter, supporting every single thing with proof. The response and declaration were two of the strongest key in this battle. Mr.Mahood has a tremendous capability to think and express one's thoughts in writing. Also Mr Mahood well represented me in court. Because of all the effort and time that he put into my case, we won the case and the judge ruled on my favor this past September 20, 2012. I am extremely happy about the job Mr. Mahood did for me and my family. Now my daughter is where she belongs, with mom. Thank you Mr. Mahood!
