I used Mary for 6mo back in 2012. She was very aggressive at first and left me hanging. I got nothing, as she and the other lawyer spoke about how much they were to make from the case. She then dismissed me as a client after I challenged her judgement. Her lack of technology use was an embarrassment. The lengthly letters in the mail were a joke. I was needless to say very disappointed and the retainer gone. She was useless. I left her firm and found a attorney who could close my divorce. don't bother with Ms. Quinn.
I hired Mary to represent me during my divorce after attending her "Navigating Your Way Through Florida Divorce" seminar. She took very good care of my case and helped me achieve my goals. She was a bit more aggressive than I truly needed, but I'd much rather ask my lawyer to back down than ask why she isn't doing more. The entire thing - from the day I met her to the final court date - only took 4.5 months.
Hopefully I'll never need her help again, but if I do, I won't hesitate to call.

I used Mary for two draining years. She was very aggressive at first and left me hanging. I got nothing, but she made sure to get my credit card to charge me for every little thing she looked at or glanced at. every minute was accounted for in her weekly bill assessment. Her lack of technology use was at my expense. If she up dated herself and staff she wouldn't have bill for every letter she mails out to you. I was needless to say very disappointed and very much in debt. I left her firm and found a attorney who could close my divorce. don't bother with this firm unless you have unlimited set of funds.

I had a lame lawyer which I fired for lack of progress and effort. As soon as I hired Mary she got to work. After just a short time, she knew more about my finances and case than I did. She guided me and gave me the good news and bad news straight up. In the end, Mary was able to do the impossible... settle a divorce case that looked hopeless. It was nearly a miracle! Thank you for giving me my sanity back and allowing me to rebuild my life Mary!

I have dealt with many attorneys over the years and Mary Quinn is one of the best , if not the best, ever. We engaged her several months ago in a family law matter and the experience has been very rewarding and successful. She is a "quick study" and absorbs the essestials of a complex case almost immediately. She is most valuable because she "tells it how it is" and avoids raising false expectations. Her sage, straight forward advise ( based on many year's experience) steers you away from legal action unless absolutely necessary. Ms Quinn is highly professional being on-time for meetings and responding to requests in a timely manner. She is very honest which can't be said for many in her profession. Our matter is ongoing and our confidence in Ms Quinn is very high. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal advice in the Family Law practice area.

Mary is great! She is very professional and well respected by her clients and her peers. She doesn't like to drag your case out any longer than it has to be. I never got the feeling that she was trying to make money off of me. She was trying to help me, help as quickly and efficiently as possible. My case took exactly a year, like she wanted. She was honest with me and didn't fight for things, wasting my money if she knew she couldn't win them based on lack of information or proof. She didn't want to slow down the process by needless motions and drain me dry. She listened to me, I was able to disagree with her on some things, tell her what I wanted whether she agreed or not, she respected it. I loved the personal treatment as well. I was scared to death, stressed and anxious and her being with me helped so much! She is personable, and she knows her stuff! Very strong, very smart, knows the law, and commands respect. She is not afraid to go after someone while fighting for something, but does so very professionally. She gets answers! I not only consider her still as my lawyer, even though my case is over, but my friend too!

I used Mary Quinn for my divorce a few years back and then again when ex husband re-open the case. She handles everything promptly and and made me feel like everything would and did work out. I have recommeneded her to others that have used her services too and have been very pleased.
She was professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a competant attorney who knows what she is doing.

Going through a divorce is one of the hardest steps you will take in your life. It's emotionally and mentally draining. Mary made this process easier than expected and was very prompt in her communications. She is very knowledgeable in her field and will give you all the facts straight to the point. When choosing a lawyer, it's a tough decision because you don't get a second chance. I feel that I had made the best decision to retain Mary as my lawyer and was satisfied throughout the entire process. Her office location is also great because it's located in downtown Tampa which is central to most areas and a few minutes walk to the court house.

I had a difficult divorce and custody case, and an attorney that I didn't feel right with. It was time to change. Mary Quinn was highly recommended by someone I trusted. I had to be persistent to get her to take my case so close to deadlines, but there is no looking back. I have used her services for mediation, and a multi day trial. When "low road" tactics against me surfaced later, she was the safe haven to resolve this, and a referral to an attorney with a different specialty. I had my legal team!
I could go on and on, but actions speak louder than words and Mary Quinn delivers. When you feel betrayed, and untrusting, Mary is the person you can rely on. You can walk into court with confidence. I think the key word is trust. If you don't trust your attorney, you have nothing. She will sugar coat nothing, tells it how it is, and is respected by her peers and the system. You may not like what she tells you, but you are best advised to do it as she says if you want to have a positive outcome. She will make you feel like she has no other clients.
Thank you, Mary. You're the best.

I met Mary through another in 2000. Shortly after, it was necessary to hire her for my own divorce and child custody battle. She asked two things, listen to what she said and be honest. I did just that. As a result of her knowledge, her caring and tenacity, the outcome could not have been better. Ten years later, I still refer Mary Quinn to all of my friends, to friends of friends and to family members. I tell them the same thing she told me and they have been happy with their outcomes.
In a time when it was unheard of for the Man to gain custody of the children much less 3 daughters, 1 less than 1 year of age, Mary fought for what she believed was right. For that, she will always be the legal reference I will always use and always refer to anyone who needs help and wants to be treated fairly.
I welcome any questions regarding Mary and her talents.
