Very tough and smooth negotiator. When needed, relentless and tough in court without being rude. Experience shows. Have recommended numerous friends to Elizabeth...never had a disappointed referral.
I can't say enough about Elizabeth. She is professional, so very intelligent and down to earth. She helped me through a very difficult time without putting a financial burden on me. There were times when I wanted to quit but she calmed me down with her reassuring words of wisdom. Elizabeth was my voice when I could not muster the courage to speak. I value her work ethic and tenacity. I received everything I wanted out of my settlement: enough to support my three children without having to uproot them from their home. I feel protected and safe thanks to Elizabeth. If I need an attorney again, she will be the first person I call.
I worked with Elizabeth on a divorce case. Some words that describe her are:professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, realistic. Her passion for her profession became obvious as she made the effort to know me and to understand my situation. It is wasn't for Elizabeth and Luke (her partner), I would have lost my home and the little bit of retirement money that I had saved. I didn't always like the advice she gave me..and at times didn't even follow that advice...but her counsel was dead on accurate. She and Luke always had my interests at heart and were extraordinary in their legal knowledge...they had a well-thought out strategy. As a result, they were nearly always acting, not reacting. I very highly recommend Elizabeth and Luke to anyone in need of a family law team and highly competent advocates.
Elizabeth Feely handled my divorce. She was very caring about my situation and combined court hearings with negotiations to get what I needed for my divorce settlement. She was very compassionate with me, yet she was very tough with my husband's lawyer. I came out with the much better deal. I know I will need advice again to make modifications to our divorce decree and I like having her to be my lawyer when I need her. Her fees were very fair and reasonable, especially when I compare them to other women I know who got divorced.
Did not show up in court repeatedly and then had the nerve to send me a bill for not showing up. All future clients need to ask for proof of attendance at any court dates they bill you for. The same for her associate. He doesn't show up repeatedly either. Both don't seem to care about the outcome of your case. All they want is to get paid for not being there.
Elizabeth is patient, tenacious and very experienced. She's a great listener and very compassionate. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for help with difficult legal problems.
I'm a male professional who needed a smart, creative lawyer who didn't settle when the first judge told her that I had no chance of winning. With her creative legal arguments and excellent persuasive skills, I was able to win sole custody of my two daughers. I am very grateful to Elizabeth for her no nonsense approach to handling complex divorce cases. Sometimes she's not the easiest to get a hold of, but when she's presenting your case to the judge, she's the best.
Ms. Feely was quick to collect my retainer and often times difficult to reach. I felt my ex- spouse was receiving much better attention and response from her attorney. I felt out of the loop of pertinent information because of Ms. Feely's cavalier approach to returning calls. She was late to court on several occassions which caused unnecessary anxiety and stress. When I did meet with Ms. Feely I felt my actual case was secondary to other matters. Overall, I could not recommend Ms. Feely to anyone going through a contested divorce.
