    • I recommend Mandy McKellar.
    • I hired Mandy 1-3 years ago.
    • Mandy handled my Child Custody matter.

    My case was contested custody, the parents of my ex have all the money to spend in his behalf and I don't. I went to different lawyers that won't listen to my drama and I was desperate to win my kids because I know my ex cannot take care of them. My savings was getting low. I saw Mandy here and knew she's the one to win my case. She's very attentive and listened to every detail of pain that I went through. I have all the evidence I need but she pulled a very smooth tactics that made my ex to back off! She requested my ex-husband to sign a HIPPA release, drug test, and many more. After a few months of going back and forth to court, she won my case and closed the deal last December 2013. I am very happy and satisfied because now I have permanent sole legal and sole physical custody with my 3 kids and a 100% discretion when it comes to visitation. And about the bills? Her firm gives me an option. Just like she said, she lets her clients pay her like an auto loan. I love Mandy and I will hire her again if I need to.

    • I do not recommend Mandy McKellar.
    • Mandy handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    This attorney will always be late for your filings, over charge your account with frivolous charges where her mother (office Manager) picks up some income and is incapable of difficult cases. If your looking for a someone to handle a contested difficult case...keep looking at the larger firms as this is a one person office that won't remember your case after you leave her office.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Litigation is not a poor man's sport. If you cannot make an attempt to pay your bill or set up a small monthly payment this is what will happen. That said, if you really cannot afford counsel, the local Pro Bono provider is the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, which can be called at 702-386-1070 (or see their information on the web at http://www.lacsn.org/option,com_jcalpro/Itemid,3/extmode,view/extid,15/). Those that take pro bono cases take them after they have been screened, and assigned, by Legal Aid. The Reduced Fee Panel sponsored by the State Bar can be reached at 702-382-2200. Additionally, there are free consultations offered on Thursdays at the self-help center; volunteer attorneys provide 15-minute consultations, for free, on family law questions. For those that wish to attempt self-representation, forms are available at the Clark County self-help center website, at http://www.clarkcountycourts.us/shc/Supporting%20Documents/self_help_supportingdocs.html. This Firm does not have late filings and rates and fees are competitive. All fees and rates are disclosed. The more difficult and contested the case becomes , the fees and rates will rise accordingly. This is standard for the Legal Industry. Whether the Firm is Large or Small the expectation of maintaining funds in your Trust account and or Retainer account will be expected.

    • I recommend Mandy McKellar.
    • I hired Mandy more than 3 years ago.
    • Mandy handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was going through a Divorce / Custody battle with my ex wife and retained the serviced of Mandy. After informing her of my case and all the info she spent time first explaining what the process was and then fighting like a shark for my rights as a father.

    Mandy J McKellar is always quick to respond which helped through the tough process of working on my divorce proceedings with a non-responsive spouse. She is tough and gets right to the point without rolling over you providing detailed information and facts of law related to your case. After working with Mandy for several months and hearing her in the court room defending my positions I could not have asked for better representation.
