This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Splendid, frank and productive experience. Fantastic Communicator!
Mary represented me in my divorce and was a consummate professional. Beyond explaining the process and relevant laws, she was very receptive and responsive to questions along with properly setting (and correcting!) expectations. She should be commended (along with the Paralegal staff!) in helping to keep me on task for documentation requests and important upcoming dates. I found her to be extraordinarily easy to communicate with, both in email and in person. I was never in the dark about the status of my case. Though I hope I never have to hire her again for a case such as this, I, without reservation, wholeheartedly endorse her for any other clients considering using her services or that of her firm. They were simply superb.
