5.0 stars 5 totalReview Lindsay Noel
This is a follow-up to a review I posted earlier about Lindsay and her paralegal Mallory. Since that time, my case has settled. Lindsay was incredible throughout the entire process. Her knowledge of family law is encyclopedic but what makes here stand out in my opinion is her compassion and unwavering commitment to keep her client on track, within the law and on the "high ground". She took every opportunity to help me reduce my costs instead of just doing whatever I wanted and running up fees, and carefully reviewed every document, motion, response and discovery issue I had. She kept me honest and never shirked telling me when I had gone off the reservation. In the end, we avoided a trial and negotiated a settlement that both parties could live with. During the negotiation process she was very clear about the risks inherent with a family law trial and the possibility that I could actually come out with less that what was negotiated. That advice and caution proved spot-on when our agreement was signed and the judge spoke his piece about it.
I spoke of her compassion and that more than anything impressed me. This was a blindside divorce and I went through the 5 stages of grief dealing with it. She never judged me, understood that the Big Bad Sailorman had a heart that could be broken and that he could cry. I am amazed at how she, or any other family law attorney for that matter, can deal with the raw anger and hurt that happens when two people that used to love each other tear each other apart.
I recommend her without reservation to anyone needing competent, knowledgeable, and responsiveness representation in and family matter.

My matter is ongoing, but I just have to let other potential clients know that Lindsay and Mallory are the bomb. They took me first as supervisory for my pro-se appearance and when things went south, jumped in both feet. I'm dealing with pre-nup issues and a spouse that wants to duck it. It has been a siege instead of a brawl and in that regard Lindsay is inexorable! Attention to detail, thinks outside the box and when dealing with opposing council is a master of Irish Diplomacy (telling them to go to hell in such a way they look forward to the trip). She and Mallory are also exceptionally compassionate. i was a bundle of raw emotion in a blindside divorce. They understood that can make a crusty old 34 year sea dog break down and cry. They spent as much time holding my hand, dealing with my somewhat piquant language and patting my shoulder as they have putting together a razor sharp case. It ain't over yet, but I have a truly level playing field and a better than fighting chance in getting some justice. In my world, they'd be called good shipmates, the highest compliment.

Lindsay was amazing throughout my case, she was supportive, and cared, and understood exactly where I needed to be, and got me there. I would recommend Lindsay to anybody that needed a brilliant Attorney. Mallory, was a gift too, both of you worked so hard, and I appreciate both of you very much, thank you.

I had a very urgent need for a well qualified attorney to represent me due to being out of country when my ex filed a totally unwarranted action against me without me ever even getting notice from the court (...I found out as I passed through a foreign immigration point). I had one day to find an attorney, get a declaration written and have an attorney in court to represent me. Lindsay Noel from McKinley Irvin was up to the challenge. She worked remotely with me, prepared my response, had my ex served with the response and notice McKinley Irvin would be representing me in court - all in one day. The next day when Lindsay appeared in court, my ex had decided not to take on Lindsay and McKinley Irvin and did not appear. The action was dismissed by the court on the spot. I literally could not be happier or more satisfied with the work done for me in a very challenging situation. I highly recommend Lindsay Noel and McKinley Irvin.
