Mrs. Ireland is not only extremely competent in what she does and getting her clients the best they deserve, she also is extremely realistic with you and has an amazing staff. She lets you know from the best scenario to the worst scenario that could potentially happen, of course fighting for the best. She got us the absolutely best results that she originally told us she would do for us from day one and we wouldn't go anywhere else. If you want someone to fight for you, have your back and also give you the straight facts, this is where to go.

This firm has done two divorces for me, a will and a child support case. I would not go anywhere else. I find it easy to communicate with the lawyers and their staff. My fees were half what my former spouse paid and I got a better deal by far. Hopefully I won't need a lot of legal assistance again, but if I do, this is where I will go.

I retained Mrs. Ireland as my divorce lawyer which finally ended in 2010. In the beginning I was told that the standard rate for uncontested divorce was $1200. I was then told to sign a retainer agreement for higher pricing "just in case it became uncontested". During the course of my divorce, I was surprised to find out that she was taking maternity leave and would not be available for any proceedings for a period of time. I had no idea she was even pregnant, would have been nice to know there would be a period of unavailability. She also said to just contact her assistant via email or phone if I had questions and that she generally didn't charge for every single phone call and such. I had paid $4000 total and I expected to get probably $1000 back at the conclusion based on what I had been told. In the end I got a bill for an additional several hundred dollars and an invoice that in fact charged for every single email and phone call. The reason so many emails were sent was because her assistant was very slow at responding. I'd email, wait several days and then email again just to see if she received the first one. BOOM, another charge. She arrived late for a settlement meeting because she drove to the wrong location. And get this, I had to call the judges chambers to get my case scheuled because her and her assistant told me that the time period I needed was not available. The list goes on, very unhappy with my service and I would advise people to shop around before retaining this lawyer.

I recently had an opportunity to work closely with Ms. Ireland on a criminal matter. Although I have known and respected her for years, my recent experience was confirmation of her expertise in the field of criminal defense.
