At time it seemed difficult to make contact with or get a reply back from you, but ultimately we were overall pleased with the service she provided us. We would recommend her.

I hired Jillian Aylward after consulting with several other lawyers in the Rockville, MD area. Right away she seemed much more personal and engaged than anyone I spoke with. Jillian made a very daunting process easy and accessible, and I very highly recommend her without reservation. After an initial consultation by Skype, we had a meeting in her office in person to complete all the paperwork. She never rushed, spent as much time as it took to answer all questions, and answered subsequent emails and concerns very quickly and completely. I can only say positive things about her, and about how easily and calmly she helped resolve this inherently stressful process for me.

I called Ms. Aylward and she made me feel at ease from the moment she spoke to me. Ms. Aylward was very assuring and helpful, and so is her partner Mr. Lastarria who also helped me tremendously. He helped me though the mediation and modification process. What could've been a foreclosure on my home turned out to be a modification reduction loan. My payment was reduced to an amount I can afford. They took over $1,000.00 off my monthly payment. To God be the GLORY!!! I am so grateful for Ms. Jillian Aylward and Mr. Eric Lastarria. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you've done!!:)

I went down to Ms. Aylwards law firm after requesting an appointment. I thought I drove all the way from Baltimore to Rockville. When I arrived her paralegal ushered me into an office that had Ms Aylward speaking to me from her home on Skype. I was a bit taken aback since no one told me I would be Skyping. I told her I could have done that from Baltimore spending much less money and time. However, I listened to what she had to say which was very little because most all of the information was provided by her paralegal. She was asking him questions and he came up with the options that she had not mentioned like reduction in principal. I now know why she had me come all the way down there to Skype her because without her paralegal she is pretty much lost. To say I wasn't impressed is putting it mildly. This is coming from a person who worked 10 years at New York University Law School, whose father was a lawyer and who worked as a paralegal herself. I had seen on one of the cites that she charged 350 to 390 per hour and worked at times pro bono for 5%. She said her hourly fee was 450.00. She also stated that the modification would cost $5000.00, $1000.00 upfront and the rest over 6-7 months. That is a bit of a hefty fee considering there is no guarantee that I would get a modification and( I would really be paying her paralegal who does all the work) even thought she said I had a good case. As a person I found her pleasant enough but I think these reviews are a bit overrated. Just want to let you know. Buyer beware.

I have worked with Jillian twice, the first time for some advice and information gathering, and the second to negotiate settlement of some difficult debt issues. She was able to negotiate a great deal and gave excellent advice, while being very pleasant and responsive.

Jillian is a professional powerhouse- extremely knowledgeable and experienced, thorough in case preparation from start to finish, quick to take action, and immediate in responding personally to all my questions. At the same time, she is an empathetic and gentle person who made me feel comfortable at all times during a very stressful period. The previous attorney who worked on my case gave me poor counsel, did not respond personally to my questions, and made errors in the filing papers. After my first meeting with Jillian, I knew she "had my back" and that I had made the best possible choice of attorneys. What a difference a superior attorney made in the process and outcome of my case! Every detail went so smoothly. I truly feel blessed to have found Jillian online. D. T.

Jillian Aylward and her team helped us negotiate a loan modification that exceeded our expectations. A series of personal losses, serious illnesses and family concerns got us off track. Ms. Aylward was kind and non-judgmental. Her professionalism, timeliness and diligence were top quality.

The firm represented me in a foreclosure action. They were very helpful. They took care of all the paperwork
and coordination with the opposing legal firm. They set up a mediation session with the legal firm that represented the lender and a resolution has been reached. All in all a successful representation.
