Wendy help my Wife and I while going through a very difficult pre-foreclosure procedure. She put our mind and ease and handled the matter with true professionalism. We had not met her prior to using Mara & Mara, however we did read the online reviews that were out there, and found the personal experience to be everything we had hoped for. We could not be happier with how everything went using this firm.

We came to Wendy Mara with a legal issue involving our purchase of a franchised restaurant. Wendy was not only extremely knowledgeable but also very helpful in assessing our situation. Both her and her husband were professional and kept us informed through every step. We would highly recommend their services to anyone needing legal help.

I have been working with Wendy Mara for a couple of years now. She has handled modifications to our parenting plan as well as consulted me on relocation with a minor child. I was very happy with every outcome.
Trustworthy - She is by the book in terms of privacy and is very fair and honest in her billing. You won't be charged for work she isn't doing.
Responsive - If I contacted her I always heard from her by the end of the next business day. The attorneys that I have had in the past were not even close to being on the same level.
Knowledgeable - She told me what was going to happen, how it was going to happen according to the law, and the probable outcome at the time of my consultation. Everything stayed true throughout the process.
Kept me informed - I never found myself wondering what was going on. I always knew where we were in the process.
Wendy Mara is the first person I call if I need legal assistance.

The Mara firm, Miss and Mister Mara addressed our problems and literally give us the best possible options according to our situation. I will love to do business again with them.

Hired Mara and from the outset I could see they were desperate for money. Doing unnecessary work and having their clerk secretary use my account like it was her personal piggy bank. When I sensed and overprotective situation with the employee I came to find out the clerk/secretary was her daughter. She would not admit this to me when I ask on 3 occasions. On other sites I have observed their family members sending in positive reviews. I complained and she just billed me more. On two occasions I had to step in myself and get things done. I even had to arrange for a process server which they could not seem to do. It took me 5 minutes in time to handle this problem and they still billed me for work they did not do or could not do competently. On one email she told me she was having a child and she was trying to keep the firm afloat. Fact is she went to a very poorly rated law school and has a practice in a small town but tries to pretend she is a Miami attorney charging Miami prices. Both of these cases were uncontested yet Mara seemed to think the end justifies the means. It does not! I believe that an attorney should avoid even the slightest appearance of impropriety. Mara should have disclosed to me as well as the court her relationship with Law Clerk especially when petitioning the court for money on behalf of Law Clerk. Overcharging me even though the two people I foreclosed on ended up paying the bill it is not right. It is about honor not grabbing every penny you can from a client without doing the work and doing the work poorly.

I retained the services of Wendy A. Mara of Mara & Mara P.A. Attorneys at Law to represent me in a personal legal matter. I would highly recommend Wendy Anne Mara for her professional and knowledgeable work ethic; her considerate and thoughtful expertise. Wendy has demonstrated her dedication providing outstanding interpersonal, highly competent and accomplished attorney skills which is difficult to find anywhere these days. Due to her pay attention to detail attributes and trustworthy caring attitude, I would highly recommend Mara & Mara to everyone I know.

She listened, took my old documents and compiled just what I needed. She took time to explain things to me in a way that I could easily understand. I feel very confident that she is an excellent attorney and would do a great job in whatever she tackled. If she doesn' t have an immediate answer, she will do the proper research to get it. I would not hesitate to hire her or anyone else in her firm.
