When I first came to Stuart I was in a very difficult situation, leaving a violent relationship. He has helped me with getting a restraining order, and we just finalized the divorce and custody case and I got everything that I was hoping for and more. Stuart helped me to find my voice in the court system so that the judge, mediator, and everyone else I had to deal with actually HEARD me and what I had been going through. There were a lot of lies told about me by my ex and he was also trying to deny a lot of what had happened, however, Stuart helped me stand strong through all of that and we ended up completely successful. Thanks Stuart! I also wanted to thank his office staff who were a great help through the entire process as well.

Stuart MacKenzie is a man of integrity. He is honest, trustworthy, very knowledgeable, very sharp and "doesn't miss a beat" with pertinent details/issues. Without a doubt and based on my experience so far, I would highly recommend Stuart MacKenzie, He will advocate for you and fully represent you as a partner in your own divorce case.

Stuart was my divorce lawyer for about 10 months. He is irresponsible and unprofessional. He was asking the same questions in the trial court(8 months later) that I have told him in the 1st time we meet. He was obviously not prepared good to my case while he charged me huge lawyer fee.
My marriage was short term and has simple property division problem. He did not understand the key points. He is not good in algebra calculations with several numbers.He was interrupted by my ex wife's lawyer in the court for not saying the key points. Even I agreed that his arguments were irrelevant. The judge was correcting his knowledge of the facts of my case in the trial.He was chatting with my ex wife's lawyer about Christmas traveling plan while ignoring my request to double check an obvious calculation error of $2000.00 with several numbers.
Due to my language problem. He asked me to sign an agreement about lawyer fee treated as lien. Be aware of this.

Stuart MacKenzie has been my lawyer for 6 years. I have been in a long divorce, mostly struggling to collect Child Support. He has been very caring and supportive and is able to present the case very clearly. What I like best about him is his willingness to allow me to do a lot of the investigative work myself, which is what I like to do, and then he puts it all together in a format that can be presented in Court. He is very experienced at what he does yet he is still one of the more reasonably priced Lawyers around. Great combination of nice person and sharp Lawyer.

Mr. MacKenzie and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and prompt in the services rendered in my child custody case thus far.
My experience with Mr. MacKenzie has also been very professional, yet down-to-earth when he explains complex legal details that have really made my first legal process a smooth one.
I would very much recommend him to anyone seeking a well-balanced and experienced attorney who is willing to get the facts about a child custody case "straight" and honest. Keep up the great work!

Stuart Mackenzie handled my child custody case for years, I was not only trusting in him but confident that he would do everything he said, and he did. If it was not for Stuart MacKenzie handling my case and knowing how and what needed to be done I dont think I would have been able to get threw the court process. I would recommend him to every and anyone

Stuart did a fine job with my case. I am a very emotional person, and my custody case involved my daughter being abducted. Stuart kept the case going and didn't over charge me. He gave me sensible advice and left me with a bank account, much more than other lawyers would have. He didn't play on my emotions.
Recently, I asked Stuart about possible litigation on another matter, He read my email and advised against it. He didn't charge me either. So, instead of laying out $ 10,000 up front and having a very emotional year, I am now sitting here with peace of mind and the $$$ I would have spent.
