The Attorney We Needed
Jane Maughan has been our attorney for a challenging child custody case involving our granddaughters, who were in an unsafe environment. Every step of the way, Jane has provided us with sound legal advice to achieve the best outcomes for us and our granddaughters. She didn't always tell us what we wanted to hear, but she always told us what we needed to hear. She's focused, ethical, and fair, in and out of the courtroom. With Jane's help, the girls have been living safely with us for almost 2 years, and we are in the process of filing for permanent custody. We couldn't have chosen a better attorney.

"Brilliant"
I obtained attorney Maughan, 7 years ago, knowing that I was inevitably headed for Divorce, and wasn't sure what to expect. I always felt informed, even when I did not know what would happen, I was always prepared. Her advice and direction were spot on!!! She communicated with me every step of the way via. email, phone call or office visits. But did not waste time with the irrelevant nonsense that spouses are great at. Jane Maughan is a tough, ethical, honest, caring, brilliant,hard working attorney whom I highly recommend to anyone, and I have.

A true professional, one of the best
I have dealt with countless attorneys during years in business and have always been amazed at the wide range of skill/talent (or lack of) in the profession. I have known Jane for many years because of her excellent reputation in the community and hired her recently to handle a difficult and sensitive legal matter. I was extremely pleased with her and the guidance she provided. She was always professional but had a relaxed and friendly style that put all involved at ease. Jane demonstrated excellent knowledge of the law and smoothly guided us to a very fair result. If not the best, she is among top 2 or 3 attorneys I have worked with during my years in business. I would highly recommend her.

Smart with a system
Jane handled my divorce. She has a very precise system to gather the correct documents and gather all the needed info that saves hours that I can not count. A system like this can only be made with years and years of diligent hard work and experience mated with a high level of understanding of the legal concepts at play. I always felt informed and prepared even when we did not know what would happen I was prepared for the possible outcomes. There was no leave it to me, she communicated succinctly every step of the way but did not waste time with the irrelevant noise that spouses on both sides are great at creating. Her initial budget estimates were accurate. Her advice and direction were priceless. I highly recommend Jane Maughan for your legal counsel.

Fabulous brilliant attorney
Jane Maughan is a tough, ethical, honest, caring, no nonsense, brilliant, relentless, hard working attorney whom I highly recommend to anyone in Monroe county and the state of PA . I needed help in a municipal case. She won one of the hardest civil cases you can imagine. This case was in the local newspaper and TV news for months. She was super thorough and sharp as a razor in court. This was not her only high visibility case she won. You want results, Jane is your attorney of choice.

Excellent Attorney-Mediator
I highly recommend Attorney Maughan. My ex-wife and I hired her to be a single neutral attorney-mediator to help both of us in mediation through the divorce process. As was her role as attorney-mediator, Jane did a great job of educating both of us about the law and rights that apply in our divorce, without taking sides. She helped us to understand the end-to-end process, (in language we understood), gather information about property and assets, identify issues, develop options for settlement, and negotiate resolutions that worked for both of us and our family. You’ll find Jane to be ethical, knowledgeable and care about the things that are causing you concern. A great choice to help you through a very difficult time in your life.

Successful Divorce Mediation
My (then) husband and I hired Attorney Maughan to mediate our divorce settlement. The mediation was successful and we avoided court, in large part because of Attorney Maughan's knowledge and experience with divorce court in Monroe County. Knowing what a master might be likely to decide if we ended up in court helped us make compromises. Attorney Maughan was also very careful to stay neutral and stuck with the facts whether it was divorce law or experience in the courts. She demonstrated patience but also worked to move us along. Her communications were clear and concise. She is also personable and empathetic. It was not an easy thing to go through, but I cannot imagine how we would have managed without her mediation.

Knowledgeable and Compasionate
Atty. Maughan is extremely knowledgeable as well as compassionate, making my experience less traumatic than it might have been. She capably guided us through a complicated divorce procedure involving an incapacitated adult with a child, arranging for limited custody for the grandparents of said adult.

Attorney Maughan is the best there is...
Attorney Maughan has guided me through the emotional process of child custody with professional wisdom and knowledge. She is able to quickly sort through the facts of the case and is conscience of not wasting her client's time nor money. There is excellent communication both from Ms. Maughan, as well as from her office staff. I have felt empowered by having Attorney Maughan represent me, and I highly recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance in Monroe County.

5 star rating for Jane Roach Maughan
Ive had more than my fair share of child custody issues, and more than my fair share of incompetent legal advice. Jane Roach Maughan was the end of those problems for me. I would highly reccomnd her as attorney. Not only for her excellence and professionalism in the court room, but for her warm and friendly nature as a human being as well.

Wonderful attorney!!!
A friend recommended Jane for my divorce from a long-term marriage with minor children. I was in shock from the separation and did not know what to expect from the process. My fears were eased immediately upon meeting with Jane. She explained the process, telling me what to expect. She was patient with me but did not let me waste time or get ahead of myself. Throughout the divorce, she has been calm, caring, incredibly competent, thorough and thoughtful. She cares not only about me but about my children's well-being. Every time an upsetting issues has come up, Jane has been able to calm me down with her knowledge, experience, and compassion. I am so grateful for her support and recommend her highly.

Jane Roach Maughan
I worked with Jane Roach Maughan and could not have been happier with her services. The review points on this site actually say it all; she was trustworthy, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and kept me closely informed at each stage of our process. I was a bit outside of Jane's region, but that didn't stop me from hiring her, nor did it stop her from acting on my behalf with excellence and energy. I would recommend Jane Roach Maughan to anyone -- she knows the law and the PA legal community like no one else, and absolutely gets results.

Honest and caring
Jane Roach Maughan is well known in the Monroe County area and I expected someone more aloof and impersonal. I was very pleasantly surprised to find her extremely professional, available and most of all efficient. She gets to the point and gets the work done. But she also always had a friendly, caring attitude that is rare in a lot of professionals. I recommend her highly.
