After nearly 30 years of marriage, my wife and I decided to divorce. It was a very difficult decision for the both of us. I thought our divorce would be uncontested and over quickly but it became contested.
I researched everything I could find concerning divorce. What to look for in a Divorce Attorney, 10 Things to Do Before Filing for Divorce, 10 Things Not to Do Before You Divorce, What Does Divorce Cost and on and on. It’s overwhelming.
The 1st thing I did was take the advice of one article about steps to take to find a good divorce attorney. I interviewed 5 different lawyers, in person, in the area. The only attorney that passed all of the criteria was Mary House.
First, you will notice that Mary is very thorough. She takes the time to explain the process in lay person terms. She described the steps in detail what I would need to do so there are no surprises.
Second, she listens. She listened to my side of the story and took the time to determine what would be the best way to represent me. I could convey specifics about what I wanted and Mary would explain what I could expect from the results.
Third, communication. Mary IS the best communicator. As soon as she had any information, I knew about it. Whether through email or phone call, I was current with everything going on.
Fourth, determination. Mary does her best to get the divorce finalized as quickly as possible and genuinely concerned to reduce costs as much as possible. She is quick to respond to the opposing attorneys. She keeps correspondence precise and to the point. At times it seemed I was her only client. She always got back to my questions/requests in a timely manner.
Fifth, Compassion. Mary has the compassion you want in the very best attorney. She was truly dedicated to the outcome of my case and made every effort to make sure I was completely satisfied with the outcome.
Sixth, Experience. When you talk to Mary, it is obvious she has seen it all and her experience is a testament to that. I won’t list it here but you can look up Mary’s extensive credentials online.
I’ve only commented on some of the points I feel that were important to me. I could continue with more but I think you get the point.
If I had to do it all over again, I would get Mary to represent me.
Mary, Thank you and Tammy for making this difficult process tolerable. Thank you for your compassion and expertise. I would very highly recommend your services to anyone.

Mary was AWESOME! She helped me with a Legitimization which quickly spiraled into a Emergency custody hearing. Mary and her staff were professional, communicative and caring throughout this difficult and stressful situation. Her knowledge and calming attitude put my mind at ease during this uncertain time. Many thanks to Mary, and her assistant Tammy, for helping me thru a harrowing situation, and helping me get sole permanent custody of my 10 year old Daughter!

I endorse this lawyer. Attorney House is always prepared for Court. She is a highly intelligent advocate for her clients. I have known Attorney House for 15 years and I have nothing but accolades to share about her as a professional. She is an intelligent, diligent yet honest opponent. I endorse Attorney House without hesitation.
