    • I do not recommend Therese McElwee.
    • Therese handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I went through a difficult, unwanted divorce. If I could go back, I would hire someone who specialized in my situation (stay at home mothers). Unfortunately, once I paid the retainer, I couldn't afford to go elsewhere. I was left broke and unprepared for what lay ahead after the ink dried. I felt very little compassion from her. Divorce is extremely stressful and it is important to feel that your lawyer has your back.

    • I do not recommend Therese McElwee.
    • I hired Therese more than 3 years ago.
    • Therese handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    She is inconsiderate and money hungry. She did not care about well being of me as her client. She doesn't obtain people skills.
