A friend of mine who is an attorney told me about Ms.Mehaffie after I informed her that I was in a pickle having wasted 6 weeks with another attorney who I felt was not handling my case with care and left me feeling very uneasy. I fired the other attorney and hired Ms.Mehaffie. I am absolutely confident that I made the right decision in doing so. Ms.Mehaffie assured me that she could make the scheduled custody hearing when I hired her a few weeks prior after terminating my previous attorney. Ms.Mehaffie was up front, honest and direct in her approach which I found to be comforting. I had no surprises, she kept me in the loop on all matters, provided helpful consult and kept things moving along smoothly. I was confident and assured while working with her that I was in good hands. It was a pleasure with to work with a capable, intelligent woman, and her staff, who knew exactly how to help me in my situation. She turned an extremely stressful situation into one that was managable with her expertise. I highly recommend her for custody matters.

Ms. Mehaffie is representing me in my divorce. I knew quickly during our initial consult that she was a top-notch, knowledgeable, no-nonsense attorney, which was what I needed. She has been sufficiently compassionate given my specific life circumstances, and simultaneously does not dwell on the emotional aspects of my situation, but focuses on the legal aspects. She has provided solid advice, explaining divorce and custody law in a lucid and sensible way, and she has always made herself available to me. In addition, she does not and would not back down from the toughest of adversaries, which makes her above average.

She answered all my questions about my support case, arrived to represent me on time, and helped negotiate my support agreement eliminating hidden fees that the average person would not know about.
I would hire her again.
