    Divorce and Prenuptial Agreement

    David very successfully negotiated a potentially expensive divorce for me about 5 years ago and saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process.

    Most recently, he just finished drafting and negotiating a prenuptial agreement for me and my new bride. The agreement is both fair and intelligent, and done on time at a fair cost.

    I highly recommend him.

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “It was a pleasure helping you and your sophistication meant you understood every strategy I shared with you, and I got no push back whenever I asked you to do things which went against your initial inclinations. However, because you followed my advice, things went well, and the strategies I outlined were successful. Oh, if only ALL my clients were as cooperative as you. I am happy for you, and I wish the best as you move forward in your marriage. Hope you and your fiance continue to love each other as the years pass by.”

    Happy its over and Happy Mr. Mahood represented me

    Mr. Mahood represented me in a VERY high conflict emotionally wrecking custody battle. We created a strategy to protect my rights and the best interest of my beautiful child. He litigated fluently with all of the facts and evidence, persuading the judge of my needs. Mr. Mahood's legal answers here on AVVO reflect his insight and dedication to the law of Maryland and California.

    Thank You David for protecting me

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “You are very welcome! It is a pleasure to hear such nice words because I am well aware of how heartrending and painful this custody litigation has been for you. This case was so hard on you because the father did not treat you with the respect and kindness you deserved and left you to suffer emotionally and financially in various ways. And so you hired me to fight for you. I am so appreciative of your kind words, I have decided to apply a significant discount to my billing to you. You didn't ask for this, nor did you push for it, and you have always paid as you were supposed to, but this is my way of showing I appreciate you as a client. As the Golden Rule says, "Do to others what you want them to do to you," and this universal rule applies to everything we do, even in this situation. Again, happy to have met you, and pleased to help you with your legal needs and objectives. David Mahood, Esq.”

    Very Helpful!

    Mr. Mahood was a great help. Even though we spoke on the phone only once, it was right before the holidays and he still spent an hour with me! He gave me a lot to think about and is very easy to talk to as I didn't feel rushed or overwhelmed by anything he said. If anything else comes up with my divorce, I will contact Mr. Mahood without hesitation!

    Exceptional

    After exhausting my savings (over 30K) trying to get a divorce from a controlling angry ex spouse and her very unethical attorney I had to represent myself in ProPer. So I hit Avvo.com to ask questions when ever I got stuck. Mr. Mahood responded to my questions and even followed up with a 40 minute call to make sure I understood what to do. For free!!. I truly feel if I had him as my lawyer I would have been done with the divorce over a year ago. Too bad he happens to be almost 3000 miles away.

    Thank you Mr. Manhood. I really appreciate you for helping me restart my life!!

    Thank you!!!!!!

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “It was truly a pleasure helping you. I always try to help my clients handle their divorces and custody battles the easy way first. If settlement negotiations do not resolve the legal issues because the other party is unreasonable and just wants to fight, then onto the legal battle we go. I am pleased my advice was so useful to you. It would help you to know that even though I am in Maryland, I currently have California cases in addition to my Maryland cases. I am able to do much to help my clients with California cases, so don't hesitate to call for help if necessary. And I can fly out there to handle trials, etc., when the legal fees make it worth my travel expenses. Call me sometime, Stephanie, to fill me in on the details since our last conversation. I would like to know how things developed and exactly what you did in putting into practice my legal advice. Take care. Wish you and yours the best.”

    I need assistance with my divorce case

    I needed help with my divorce case and immediately Mr Mahood got me in for a free consultation. He is a very professional, informative, no nonsense, honest and straight to the point type of man He talks to you, and not at you or above you. MOST IMPORTANTLY HE LISTENS TO HIS CLIENTS THEN ACT ON THEIR BEHALF. This is very important in a atty client relationship. It should not be the attorney dictating to you, not working for you but against you and always threatening to drop your case because you don't always agree and he wants to be the boss. I received excellent service and advice. Thank you very much Mr Mahood and thank you Avvo.

I enjoyed meeting you and helping you understand the things that could be done to protect your legal rights.”

    Swift, relevant advice with additional, unforeseen concerns identified.

    Frankly, the title sums things up nicely. My question concerned issues related to a real estate transaction and Atty Mahood identified a potential avenue of recourse in his reply that hadn't even occurred to me, in addition to answering the original question. His swift response did well to assist me in pinpointing my focus as I go forward.

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “I was happy to help you. As an attorney, I try to answer not only the questions asked, but the questions which should have been asked. Sometimes people don't have a clue about even more important issues revolving around their legal challenges, and so we attorneys are supposed to give advice which helps them understand all the options before them.”

    Put my mind at ease that my husband's ex-wife couldn't pull me into their legal problems.

    Was worried because I added my new husband and his son to my health and dental insurance at my job. My new husband's ex-wife said she was going to list me as financially responsible on the doctor/dental bills and if I have negative credit I could lose my clearance causing me to lose my job. David reassured me that legally she cannot list me as financially responsible just because I added him to my insurance. It really put my mind at ease.

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “I would like to add a few thoughts. Even though the mother has no RIGHT to add you as financially responsible, she can cause you trouble by filling out paperwork, alleging or stating that you are the financially responsible one. Maryland law provides that the Mother and Father are financially responsible for their own child, and that you as the step-mother are not financially responsible. However, as a member of the father's household I am sure you provide financial assistance for the care of the child. You should make sure that you communicate with those who provide medical and other services to your child and let them know what is going on here. Otherwise, you could end up with troublesome paperwork filled out by the mother which could cause you difficulties, even though in the end, you can prove that you are not the financially responsible one.”

    Honest and Fair

    I found David Mahood by browsing the web for knowledgeable attorneys that handle uncontested divorce cases. David’s knowledge of the law was very helpful during my divorce and he always looked out for my best interests in a manner that was fair to my spouse. If you're looking for someone who's honest and fair, you have found the right person for the divorce battle ahead of you. While all court cases are not the same, Mr. Mahood will go above and beyond to lighten the burden on your shoulders and make it as streamlined as possible for you. I never once felt overwhelmed during the process! I'm very pleased at how everything turned out in the end.

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “Thank you, Justin, for your kind words. One of the main reasons everything went smoothly is because you were a good listener and you followed my advice. Sometimes, clients are motivated by a desire for vengeance or to cause harm to their soon-to-be former spouse. You followed my advice and treated her with respect, as did I, and so things progressed easily toward the final judgment. Any time there is a successful conclusion to a legal case, it is because the attorney and client worked together in a harmonious way. As an aside, I must say that when the litigation battle explodes, and costs both sides tens of thousands of dollars, it is almost always because one party or both parties are trying to do something really unfair to the other party, and this necessitates a corresponding defense. In your case, you were fair and that is why everything went well, and we avoided the expensive, stressful, litigation battle.”

    honest representation.

    Before hiring David to handle my divorce/ custody battle I was in the middle of talking with several other attorneys. One thing I noticed immediately was that David had listened to me talk and immediately advised me on a personal level. David was the only attorney I had spoke with that spoke to me about me, about how I was feeling and offered very good advise even before we discussed the financial end of representation. David showed me real concern for my particular situation, I never felt like my case was not as important as other cases were to him. It always seemed that David had given my case thought and he always gave me good sense of direction. David is a professional, he treats everyone with respect and had the ability to teach me a thing or two about humility along the way. I have the up most respect for David Mahood, as a result of his tutelage I wound up with custody of my two sons. I am very pleased.

    David Raymond Mahood’s response: “Thank you for your kind words. You did well in your custody case, because even though your initial approach to your case, would have damaged your results, you were a good listener, and you followed my instructions, and you listened carefully as I explained things "outside-the-box." Your willingness to do follow the principles I articulated gave you the advantage you needed, and this allowed you to obtain your legal objectives. It was a pleasure working with you because although it was hard for you to hear some of my hard-hitting counsel, you swallowed your pride, made the necessary changes, and said and acted exactly as I had advised you. And everything worked out for you because you did not insist that your way was the only way. I enjoyed meeting you and helping you. Most of all, I am confident the children are in good hands.”
