Very helpful and knowledgeable
I hired Tara to help me with a custody case. At first I didn’t think I needed an attorney but things took a turn and I decided to hire Tara. Good thing I did! She was able to get me everything I wanted and still keep things amicable. She was super straight forward and laid everything out in a way I understood. I also appreciated that she really cared about me and my family and wasn’t only interested in the money. In fact, when it came to the money stuff she was very affordable. At the end I felt like probably should have paid her more because she did such an amazing job.

BEST Attorney
Tara is the best attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She really helped me and my family when I was falsely accused of a crime I did not commit. She was super compassionate and very informative during the whole matter. I felt completely at ease knowing I had her in my corner. You should absolutely hire Tara Madden with Madden Law!

No other custody attorney comes close to Tara Madden. Her professionalism, honesty and hard work surpasses the competition. She is tremendously knowledge in the area of child custody law/ family law and will be my forever go to attorney for these issues.

Very grateful for Ms. Madden's services during a difficult time
Tara Madden was a beacon of hope at a time when my options appeared limited. Ms. Madden helped me with a very sensitive family law issue involving domestic violence. She kept me informed during every step of the way and I felt very at ease knowing she was handling my case for me. I am eternally grateful for her help and guidance and highly recommend Tara Madden for her services.

Ms Madden dosnt understand that my dad is a lier and a theif.
I was giving Ms Tara Madden by the Family court and she not giving me the right information about that my character witness can't be in the court room holding my hand hand keeping me calm. She also dosnt understand that my dad is lying under oath and he needs to be required to be held in contempted court because he lied and said that I threw a kitchen chair at him which I'm psychically disabled and walk with a cane. I can't even lift up a kitchen chair and he's accusing me of stealing his heart medication which my cousin was over the house and he misplaced his medication. It was under a whole bunch of papers. He's a hoarder and a compulsive lier and under the dsm5the psychiatric diagnostic book he has a definite mental health issues. He don't know reality from fact. He also lied to the NYS DMV to get out of taking his driving test again. He said he had to go to Florida in an emergency which he never did go. He's been abusive all my life to me and when my mom got sick with cancer he didn't want my mom to get a hospital bed . That's why two home care agencies left because he wanted the girl to do his laundry and to clean up after him.
