Ms. Smith helped during a long and difficult international divorce involving child custody issues. Besides being very knowledgeable, she is also very organized and proactive. Throughout the whole process, she clearly explained the alternatives and their consequences. She sought and found advice on foreign law as needed, consistently kept me in the loop on what was going on and answered my numerous questions without delay. Her calm and friendly demeanor was reassuring in those circumstances when you're clearly not in control but merely trying to understand what the next step is. You can't turn divorce into something easy, but it sure helps knowing you have someone on top of things on your side...
Ms. Smith helped me through a very nasty, acrimonious divorce, yet remained a calm voice during the storm. I very much appreciate the fact that she maintained a professional attitude and kept me focused on the eventual outcome. My case was international in that even though we had been married in the U.S. the divorce took place with one of us living in the U.S. and the other in Europe. Ms. Smith worked closely with another attorney in Europe and was invaluable in helping me navigate the process.
I have been using Marguerite Smith as my attorney for my son's case since early 2009. The case lead to trial which Maggie handled very well and I was thankful that I had her representing me during this stressful time.
We are still facing ongoing custody issues for my son and continue to use Maggie during this stressful time. We would recommend her to others.
I have known Marguerite Smith for eight years. She is very fair with her billing, she keeps you informed and answers emails and voicemails in a timely manner. I know I can always get the best legal advice in any given time, with honest answears to my questions.
Ms. Smith very effectively handled my divorce which I viewed as rather complex. She was able to keep me focused through difficult periods and kept after me to meet deadlines. I was continually amazed at the short time it took to turn around tasks and get them to court, opposing counsel, mediators, etc. I would recommend her very highly.
