Briana Gaumer gets 10 stars from me.
Briana Gaumer was not my first attorney. I had hired two attorneys previously to handle my custody case, neither gaining any positive result, and, in fact, my situation as a father worsened exponentially over time, even with the representation I had. At the height of battle and during the worst of times, I started another new search for the representation my children and I desperately needed, and like a Godsend, I came across Briana Gaumer, who, from the start of our very first talk during consultation, took charge of this matter in a way no one else had. Neither of my former attorneys, nor any other I consulted, had the kind, intelligent, confident, understanding spark that Ms Gaumer exhibited during that initial consultation. Custody battles are emotionally charged experiences, and they're not easy to navigate with a cool head for most. Myself being of no exception to this, Briana was able to hear my whole story and then communicate confidently what needed to be done, via her role and mine, with her "trust my process" mentality, that for the first time in years, I was finally able to feel like I had a competent attorney on my side with a plan, an attitude, and the intent to get things done. And I thank God that I did decide to bet on her.. At the time of writing this review, my case is still currently ongoing, but a positive review for her here is so well deserved, because in a few short months and after only one appearance in court thus far, my situation has switched direction so drastically, with results so immediate and so profound, that it seems almost unbelievable after everything my children and I have been thru.. I can't express enough in words how grateful I am for her as my counselor and what she's done for us so far. To have real results placed in my hands this quickly, and with more on the way in short time. Her ability to respond to emails, and adapt to changing defenses; her "process" has shown provably to exceed far beyond the expectation I had in an attorney for my case. After years of struggling, there's now a bright light at the end of this long dark tunnel we've been walking thru, and as genuinely as I can possibly convey here, it's all thanks to her, and I'm forever grateful to her for that. Obviously, I highly recommend!!!! She rocks...

Best family attorney in the Lehigh Valley
I have unfortunately had to work/consult with various child custody lawyers in this area, and attorney Gaumer is hands down the best. I would recommend her above any other if you are looking for a compassionate, professional, skillful and tactful lawyer to go to bat for you. After an expensive consult with one of the "top" lawyers in this area, I left crying. I then had a 15-minute free consult with attorney Gaumer and knew I found the right person to represent me. I had a frivolous petition filed against me, with many false accusations, in an attempt to obliterate my parenting skills; I was livid, hurt, and fearful about what was to come out of it. Attorney Gaumer handled it with greater competency than a previous experienced lawyer in the area, and I got the outcome that I was hoping for to ensure a healthy upbringing for my daughter between two households. Anyone going through a custody battle knows how emotionally traumatic it can be; attorney Gaumer was a voice of reason during a difficult time, and I felt so much calmer with her in my corner. She is personable, empathetic, easy to get a hold of, and you feel at ease in her presence. Though she leaves a friendly and warm impression, this is not to be mistaken with softness! She may be a younger, but if I were one of the more "experienced" attorneys in this area, I would certainly be intimidated by this up-and-coming attorney's integrity and strategic brilliance. She truly cares about what she is doing and puts great effort into her work. I hope to not rely on an attorney for many more years to come, but in the event that my case ends up back in court, I am definitely going straight to attorney Gaumer. She is amazing!

Attorney review
Attorney Gaumer wasn’t my first attorney I went to. I went to another attorney and got the run around for 2 months. But, I can tell you, she will definitely be my last. Attorney Gaumer is very professional in every sense of the word. The first day I walked into her office for a consultation, I knew immediately she was the attorney I needed. She went in and took charge and did exactly what was needed to be done. Attorney Gaumer is a no- nonsense attorney. She works very hard for you, she would make mention on how she felt things might go, and things always worked out. She wasn’t just there to help, but she really cared about the outcome because of me. She represented me with everything she had, in fact I would endearingly call her my pit bull. Attorney Gaumer was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls. If she wasn’t able to call, she wouldn’t leave me hanging, she would send an email to let me know, and when she was available to call. The staff was very helpful, pleasant and always took care of things I needed. I am not surprised after seeing what kind of an attorney, Attorney Gaumer is. I can see why she was asked to be a partner. If you need legal advice she is definitely the best choice.

More than just a lawyer..
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Briana has been my absolute rock through some of the most difficult times in my life over the past few years. She is an absolute professional and knows what she is doing. She has been there for me in and out of the court room whether I needed a little extra reassurance or just needed to ask her opinion, she shows up and goes above and beyond. I will never use anyone else as she has gained a client in me for life. Hiring her was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

Very Professional
Attorney Gaumer represented me recently for a child custody case. Not only am I happy with the results of the case, but she fought hard to get me back with my son. Responses to any questions I had leading up to court were ALWAYS prompt(next day latest). I'll never retain a different custody attorney again. Highly Recommend!

Outstanding service and professionalism
Attorney Gaumer is a world class lawyer who deeply cares about her clients and who is thorough in her approach. I hired Attorney Gaumer for a complicated custody and child support case which she resolved in an extremely timely and professional manner. She has a healthy perspective in which she sees the big picture and is detail oriented at the same time. She is super swift in her communication. I would strongly recommend Attorney Gaumer to anyone seeking legal help with custody and child support, and I am grateful that she represented me.

The Best!
I looked around for a few months for the right lawyer to represent me in a custody battle for my son. I passed on 3 other highly recommend lawyers because I felt they didn’t give me or my case the attention it needed. Within 15 minutes of speaking with Briana, I knew this was someone who genuinely cared about what I was up against. She went above and beyond for me for over 5 months and I couldn’t be happy with the results. Briana will always be my go to family law attorney not only because of how reasonable her fees are but because of her character. She was highly recommended to me and i would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help and guidance. I am forever grateful for what Briana has done for me. Thank you for everything you have done !

Very professional and also caring
Attorney Gaumer helped me through my divorce which was a very difficult time for me. She always kept me informed of each step she was taking and responded to all my emails and phone calls promptly and with a clear answer. It was very important to me to get my divorce done as quickly as possible so I could move on from this hard time. Attorney Gaumer got everything done as quickly as was legally possible because she knew it was what I needed and more importantly she cared. In other consultations before I went to Mobilio Law I felt rushed and unimportant but that is not the atmosphere at this law firm. If you want excellent legal counsel paired with compassion for the situation you are going through and prompt action and responses, do not hesitate to hire this attorney.

I was well represented for my Social Security Disability Hearing!
In 2014, I initiated my disability claim process with the Social Security Administration. Being totally ignorant of the process and requirements, I decided to reach out to a professional legal team to assist me with what I knew would be a lengthy and laborious endeavor. After reviewing several web sights and talking with a few local attorney offices, I selected MHK Attorney’s guide me through the process. From the very beginning, MHK helped me with the paperwork, answered my many questions and assisted me with gathering up the required documentation and medical records. My claim was initially denied by the Social Security Administration and MHK convinced me to proceed with the Adjudication and Review Hearing process since they felt I had a strong case that was unfairly denied. At that point in time, MHK assigned Briana Guamer as the attorney to represent me at the hearing which was held in Reading, PA about 3 years after I initially filed my disability claim. Briana called me about 4 weeks in advance of the hearing and we spoke on the phone for several house as she prepared. I was extremely impressed with Briana because as we spoke, I could tell that she had studied my case and documentation in depth and was very well versed in my medical background and work experience. By the time our initial conversation had concluded, I knew that I would be well represented at the hearing. Briana called me two more times as the hearing date approached and I was well prepared for the meeting with the Judge and the OT expert. Briana then met me about 90 minutes prior to the hearing and we went over the last minute details and she briefed me on the formalities that would take place in the hearing room. Once the hearing started, Briana made her opening statements and cited all the relevant case history that applied to my particular situation. Briana was cool, calm, technically astute and thoroughly professional as she briefed my case. There is no doubt that Briana’s preparation and counsel helped me win my case. I would recommend MHK Attorney’s and Briana to anyone who is seeking help with their disability claim. You will be well-represented by a professional attorney who is truly focussed on being your personal advocate and helping you obtain a favorable outcome
