    • I do not recommend Mary Forwood.
    • I hired Mary 1-3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Was not available once to assist me with details of my case, despite repeated attempts to contact. Saw her the first day (when I paid my upfront fee) and the last day (after I negotiated my own settlement with no legal input). Seemed knowledgeable, but provided little to no service.

  2. Incompetent and unprofessional

    I was not happy with my experience with Ms. Forwood. I increasingly felt less confident that she was a strong advocate, efficient, and effective. Her lack of knowledge is apparent, and she drags on her case in order to increase the cost of her services. I felt that she presented options for me that were detrimental. Additionally, I thought she treated the paralegal poorly, talked behind the paralegal's back. She doesn't realize that she is a fool, and appeared that way in front of the judge and the opposing council. Choosing her was an embarrassment.

    She is simply a failure at her work.
