We were very fortunate to be referred to Ann-Marie by another atty for awrongful discharge from employment. We were very impressed not only with her professionalism and integrity but also with her empathy and compassionate caring of our circumstance. She resolved our settlement quickly and to our extreme satisfaction. I would highly recommend Ann-Marie to anyone seeking a top-notch professional atty.
I had never hired a Lawyer in my entire life (over 55 years) until a little over a year. I personally interviewed four law firms all who wanted me as their client, but only Ann-Marie Ahern stood head and shoulders above everyone else.
The legal process can be very intimidating, especially, if you are a novice to the whole affair. Ann-Marie Ahern and her colleagues at MLCL were outstanding. I never felt left in the dark. They explained everything to me in a professional manner, advised me and consulted with me when necessary.
I was the most impressed with my case results. I ended up with a very reasonable settlement. At no time, did I feel that my Lawyer gave me a pie in the sky expectation regarding my personal case. Instead, I was given the truth and realistic advice.
Everyone that I met or worked with at MLCL was a gem and a true professional. You would be lucky to have Ann-Marie Ahern as your Attorney. There is no one else that I would want to represent me in my legal affairs. No one.
Anne Marie Ahern was extremely efficient and effective in handling my issue. She was prompt in her responses and quick to understand the situation and how to leverage it to a satisfactory result. She was able to keep all parties calm in order to negotiate a win/win. I recommend Anne Marie to anyone needing a tough negotiator that can get the needed result and do it in a manner that is fair to all involved.

Ann-Marie helped me negotiate my entrance and my subsequent exit from a Texas company. Many of her recommendations paid handsome dividends in protecting my personal brand, as well as my financial position. I found Ann-Marie through a referral, and I too have referred her to others, which is the highest compliment I can pay.

Ms. Ahern did a superb job of helping me navigate a difficult employment situation involving ADA concerns. She was excellent at guiding me through necessary and sometimes difficult communication situations with my employer, along with explaining when, why and how such communication was best handled. With her advice, I was able to negotiate an extended period of time in which to find another position within the company, and the end result was a new position that best met the accommodations I need. I found Ms. Ahern to be approachable, knowledgeable regarding the pertinent law, knowledgeable about common employer tactics, and genuinely sensitive to my particular circumstances. I would not hesitate to to engage Ms. Ahern in the future should the need arise.

Ann-Marie was the consummate professional. She was prepared and thorough and kept me apprised every step of the way. I felt confident throughout our engagement that she always had my best interests first and foremost. She is very knowledgable and holds her own against the opposing side.

I engaged Ms. Ahern to represent me in a complex, sensitive and somewhat unusual separation from a well-known and much loved institution. She was clear and candid in her counsel, and was a far better advocate for me than I could ever have been for myself. She had the respect of my employer, and ensured that I was treated with the respect my position and service had earned. She was highly responsive to calls and emails, and encouraged my input throughout the negotiation process. I welcomed the opportunity to work with her, deeply appreciated the settlement she achieved on my behalf, and would not hesitate to recommend her to any executive or professional seeking intelligent, assertive, and fair counsel in a difficult employment situation. As a bonus, she is also a delightful woman with a good sense of humor. I give Ann-Marie Ahern my highest endorsement as an employment attorney.

I found Ann Marie when I was at an extremely difficult stage. I had just been kicked out of graduate school, and I had no where to go (to make matters worse, I was just a few credits shy of graduating!) More importantly, I knew I didn't deserve any of this, and that I was being discriminated against. I was in over my head with student loans, yet I didn't have a degree to show for it. Ann Marie and Susan Stone agreed to have a one hour consult with me over the phone to discuss the case. Essentially they wanted to see if it was even worth taking my case, which I don't blame them for - in my head, it was a lost cause. I had spent that entire month googling what the possible ramifications could be, and there wasn't a single one that would work in my favor. Almost about 20-30 minutes into our conversation, we had already planned out a strategy, Ann Marie and Susan Stone had already informed their personnel to write an email at that very second and who to email it to. Just like that - 30 minutes before that conversation I was staring at the ceiling thinking "there goes my life" - 30 minutes later I was at a completely different point. I had hope. Two days later I find out the school wanted to negotiate. I was so excited that Ann Marie had been listening to me the whole time and completely saw my side of the story. Although during the entire case I interacted mostly with Susan, but whenever Susan wasn't there, Ann Marie would be just as helpful, and would always be in the loop since she would be getting copied on all emails. She was always one step ahead of the school. As I sit here now writing this with my diploma in front of me, I am not quite sure I will ever even know how to thank her for everything she and Susan have done for me. I went from being at rock bottom to being a graduate. Today I found out that the dean of the graduate school has "resigned" after only being the Dean for just a few months. Did our case have to do with it? Maybe. Maybe not. But one thing is for sure though: I would never have been in the spot I am in right now without these two amazing lawyers. I like to refer to them as my angels in disguise.
Thank you Ann Marie for everything. You are truly an inspiration. You handled my case as if it was your life that was on the line. If I can ever become half the person that you are today, then I would consider myself a success. Thanks again for everything.

Ann-Marie provided me with excellent legal counsel resulting in a very satisfying settlement. She was extremely professional, intellegent, and strategic. She always responded very quickly when I contacted her. I would very highly recommend her.

Ann-Marie Ahern is one of the most straight-forward, professional, compassionate and honest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She and her staff worked on my case diligently to provide the best possible outcome under many challenges. I would recommend Ms. Ahern to anyone needing an attorney. She kept me informed, was patient with my concerns and was only interested in my welfare. She treated me as if I were her only client and always responded immediately when I had questions. I believe she is more than a Super Lawyer!
