Review Mildred Sweeney

  • Effective Representation

    Posted by Bob

    After making the decision to end my marriage, I searched for an attorney who had the tenacity to fight an uphill battle for custody but the compassion to understand my situation. I found Attorney Sweeney and went to her office for a consultation. She spent so much time listening to my story and then explained all of my different options. After a long battle, I am thrilled with the results and my current custody arrangement. This was the first time in my life that I had to hire a lawyer, and I am so glad that I found Sweeney Law Offices and Mildred Sweeney.

    When going through such a rough time in your life such as a divorce, it is so important to hire an attorney who shows compassion for your situation and advocates for your best interest. Mrs. Sweeney was there for me every step of the way and her entire staff always offered a kind ear when I had questions. I would highly recommend this law firm.

    Never return calls or emails. Total waste of money. after our first emergency hearing that we lost, I was never told there were steps we could of taken to help my case, I was then passed to Heather her associate and more of the same, No answers to phone calls or emails My child support reduction papers were never filed. after repeat phone calls and emails that were unanswered the front desk clerk told me I could file them my self???? Why did I hire this firm if I should do their work? I have wasted almost a year paying child support to my ex who the courts think I only have my son every other weekend but we have a 50/50 split. My ex abandoned our son for 7 weeks and she was no where to be found, and I tried to get ahold of Heather to ask what we can do, and I'm still waiting for that return phone call.

    I met with Mildred seeking mediation with my soon to be ex wife and she just wasted time, had no agenda, couldn't get anything done. Don't go to consult or use this lawyer in a matter of Diviorce or separation.

    She had no problem taking my money and even asked me about my finances to see if I could pay for a divorce.

    Attorney Sweeney truly is an amazing person and brilliant attorney. I found her to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable during one of the most difficult times of my life. And, not only was she supportive and caring to my situation, but she knows the law and had my best interest and that of my children, at heart. Before I came to Attorney Sweeney, I sought legal counsel from an attorney that was more convenient to where I live. It was a costly and disheartening mistake. I am so glad that I found my way to Sweeney law offices.

    In this extremely emotional and stressful case our attorney, Mildred Sweeney, was hired to help us get specific visitation to see our Grandchildren. She is a straight shooter, she doesn't sugar coat anything. You know that with the court system nothing is guaranteed, but after our appointments with Attorney Sweeney we were confident she understood what we wanted and aggressively worked our case. Although, she has a tough exterior she was sympathetic to our needs and to the concerns we had for our Grandchildren's health and happiness. We now have designated visits and vacation time with our precious Grandchildren.

    If you are serious about protecting or even having to save your grandchildren from their parents/step-parents, you can find no better ally than Mildred Sweeney.
    Over the last four years she devised and led a legal challenge that not only saved our grandchild from a surgically implanted feeding tube but gave us legally guaranteed visitation in Pennsylvania and beyond. At almost every step of the way, she warned us that we probably “didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell”, but somehow she overcame those odds.
    Mildred does not give false hope nor does she avoid discussing the difficult choices that have to be made. She does investigate all the laws involved and searches for support whenever it is needed. We were serious about the welfare of our grandchild and thanked God that we found Mildred.

    You will not find a more aggressive advocate for the rights of your children than Mildred Sweeney. She is a zealous advocate for her clients and her fees are very good for such an experienced attorney. I would recommend her to anyone who has any type of family law issue. She is the best. I owe her a lot more than this review.

    Was charged way more than I was quoted over the phone for a divorce mediation meeting. Was given a large packet of materials to read and complete at the meeting to waste time and money. This information should have been forwarded to us prior to the meeting so it could be completed beforehand. Instead our initial and only meeting was spent filling out paperwork instead of discussing the actual mediation process. Just found out today that a friend of mine had the exact same experience!!

    Mildred B. Sweeney’s response: “Kelly, I am very sorry for your dissatisfaction. The employee who took the initial call no longer works at our firm, so I have no way to verify what you were quoted. I see that you paid $175, which is what our first meeting mediation fee has been for the last 4 years. If you call our office and let us know what amount you were quoted over the phone, we will refund the difference. As far as the mediation employment contract, I have found that in my twenty years of experience that many people become overwhelmed and confused by the contract, if sent in advance. I find that it is most effective to review the paperwork at the initial meeting where I can answer all of your questions. The purpose of an initial mediation meeting is to determine if mediation fits both parties’ desires and needs, and that is the route you both wish to take. If we determine that mediation is the path that is right for everyone, we then sign the employment contract and get the process started.”
