    • I recommend Mary Gurganus.
    • I hired Mary 1-3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mary was very direct and clear about her recommendations, but was also willing to do whatever I asked during a very complicated custody, equitable distribution and divorce process. She was supportive and has a great sense of humor. She has good relationships with her legal counterparts, which ultimately makes the most difference in and out of court. Wendy was also very responsive and helpful. Since this was a complex case, there were some things that did not turn out as expected, but Mary and Wendy were always upfront with me and walked through what the next steps would be. The only feedback for improvement would be occasionally administrative things were a little disorganized (for instance forgetting to correct errors in paperwork, disposing of the wrong document, having to do some things while I waited rather than having it ready), but there was nothing that impacted the case negatively. Overall, they took care of whatever needed to happen and made sure my best interests were covered.

    Mary and her staff handled my custody and separation matters. Mary was very knowledgable and provided me with the information I needed during a highly contested divorce. She did an excellent job in court and I was well represented through the entire case. Would highly recommend.

She was compassionate to the things that were important to me, while applying common sense to the situation to help settle things in a quick and fair manner.

    • I recommend Mary Gurganus.
    • I hired Mary more than 3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Family matter.

    Mary was just the attorney I needed to get me through my very difficult divorce. Not only is she an extremely capable attorney, but she was understanding and comforting during a pretty difficult time. Mary is an expert in her field and easy to work with too. I highly recommend her.
