The Best of The Best!
The Law Office of Marry Higgins, LLC is an A++ Firm. Faced with a legal situation that I was unfamiliar with and time being of the essence, I researched attorneys/firms familiar with my type of legal case and lawsuit brought against me (debt collection/creditor). The Law Office of Marry Higgins, LLC received great reviews, so I decided to complete their initial intake form during a weekend (Sunday) - and to my delightful surprise, they contacted me the following day. From the initial conversation I felt very comfortable with deciding to move forward with them representing me. They were very upfront about the services they could provide, the cost, and all of the possible outcomes. They were very prompt with responses, always available to answer any questions and provided impeccable services from beginning to end. 100%, I would not hesitate to use them again and/or refer them to family, friends, and loved ones. Deciding to hire them for my legal issue was the best decision I could have made. Job well done to Marry Higgins and Staff!

Great lawyers
My husband and I had many collections accounts on our credit. The Law Office of Mary Higgins worked hard to get our accounts settled within reason and saved us a lot of money. They kept us in the loop with what was going on.

Professional, responsive, compassionate are just a few words to describe this wonderful firm
I was faced with a lawsuit from a creditor and of course was very upset about what was going to happen. I knew I needed a lawyer. Hiring this firm and working with Mary Anne Detweiler was the best decision I could have made. I felt they had my best interest in mind at all times. Mary Anne was very responsive to all questions. My case was settled out of court and it was such a relief. Im very happy with how my case was handled from start to finish.

Very helpful, professional, responsive
This office helped us with a supportable debt repayment plan, with a creditor who was originally quite aggressive. We have now paid off the entire plan. We are so grateful to have had the services of this office.

Home depot debt settlement
Ms. Higgins and her office staff are very professional, caring and empathetic. She answered all my questions with great detail, explained all the steps that were about to unfold, and answered all my calls in a timely manner. She got me the best settlement and I was satisfied with the service from beginning till end. I was nervous and embarrass when she first contacted me but not once did she make me feel shameful about my credit. I would definitely recommend this office!

Stellar Attorney! Look No Further For Legal Counsel: She is THE BEST!
Ms. Higgins has represented me in several cases involving finances. She is professional, kind, caring, experienced, and possesses extensive knowledge in regards to the US legal system. This is especially true for her area of expertise. She demonstrates empathy and all of her legal advice has been sound and "en pointe". Her communication re: my cases has been exceptional and she kept me informed throughout the whole process. She also strives to help you avoid legal pitfalls in the future, by offering educational resources. Both she and her (office staff / legal team) are wonderful and if you choose to retain her services, she will work hard to obtain the best possible outcome for your case.
