Ms/Mrs Brown help me through my Custody battle with my son's father. When the case started I was assigned a Legal aid lawyer, who could not be reached after several messages, did not take the time to interview me at all, to understand the situation, and had a load of other case work that mean't she had no time for mines. This is when I seeked out Ms/Mrs Brown to represent me and fired my other lawyer. I choose her based on her views online, which where on point. Ms/Mrs Brown is very attentive, and can be reached at any hour when there is a concern, worked with me financially, truthfully, very dependent,Knowledgeable, strategic, and a damn good custody lawyer. I have to admit that I was a little concerned by some of the decisions that where made, but I later on see that it was her strategic plan to show my child's biological father's ass for what it is, a lair who cares about his money more than his own child that he was wiling to use a technicality of the court system and say the child is not his even with an existing paternity test and when the child is a picture of him. I was happy with the results, as I don't have to deal with this lair anymore and I can spent my time enjoying by sweet, loving, and handsome son.

I found Mary Katherine Brown on Avvo and let me just start by saying she was guided to me by the good will of God. She was very attentive and made me feel at ease regarding my personal situation. She is very astute and knowledgeable of family law. She was able to successfully obtain for me what I needed from family court. I am truly grateful ! I recommend Ms. Brown with full confidence.

Before I discovered the Law Office of Mary Katherine Brown (MKB), I was advised by an attorney in a well-established part of town. During the consultation, the first thing he did was cranking out numbers for the payments I would have to make. For the rest of the consultation, I was unable to get him to listen to my real concerns and advised me accordingly. I felt like I was seeing an accountant more than an attorney.
With Ms. Mary Katherine Brown at MKB, I was able to discuss my situation. She looked at it carefully before any legal options were presented, and advised me what position each option would put me in. She addressed my issues, cleared up my confusion, answered all my legal questions, and informed me of the governing laws. All that in plain English and repeated if I could not follow. Her approach to the problem I faced with a patient and caring attitude helped me make the right choice. She also pointed out whether litigation was necessary in my case instead of just advocating it to obtain legal fees from the client. In other words, she is acting in her clients' interests first, not hers.
As necessary in my particular situation, she also referred me to another equally competent attorney in a different area of the law, which saved me the trouble of finding one myself. Obviously with her excellent legal advice and services, you do not expect her to be next to the phone whenever you call--she may be in consultations or litigation. Her aides are all professional, courteous and helpful to relate messages in a timely manner, or set up appointments with her. Her billing is transparent and honest. Her fees are significantly lower than those in the well-established part of town.
You should not be surprised by everything positive I have to say about my experience with MKB because, as part of her stated objectives, it is the goal of Ms. Mary Katherine Brown to do all she can to achieve the best possible result for her clients with a good lawyer's toolbox. She exceeds the expectations of a good lawyer.

Mary is very sharp. She quickly grasps the essence of an issue, is intelligent and articulate, and gives sound advice. She also has the guts to stand up and fight for her client's interests. The best attorneys are the ones that have the intellect "and" the follow through to get things done - Mary has both.

Divorce is not just about getting out of a marriage. Mary takes the time with clients, and has the broad kind of experience that allows her to discover the facts necessary to secure a seperation and dissolution that takes into account the future needs of her clients, not only the immedeate desire to break away. I endorse her for the thoughtful representation that is apparent from the answers to the client inquiries, and I endorse her because her broad practice, including estates and elder law, allow her to anticipate the needs of her clients before the client realizes these issues need to be addressed in every divorce.
