I contacted Wendy to be my advocate, advisor and defender in my custody case. She was professional and empathic but also straightforward and gave me expert advise. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Mrs. Mara helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. After being married for 19 years I decided to file for a divorce. She helped me every step of the way. If I had questions either she personally answered them or one of her knowledgable staff member did. I would recommend Mrs. Mara as she did an excellent job.

Researched several attorneys in the Daytona/Ormond beach area and decided on Wendy based on overall reviews. My needs were twofold, one was for probate of my mother's estate and the other for my sister's estate needs. Wendy did an excellent job working through the probate issues as well as dealing with the attorney who prepared my mother's will.
My sister needed a will, power of attorney, and health care proxy and she completed them meet FL requirements.
The fees and work to be completed was detailed up front and there were no surprises.
Overall an excellent job and I would recommend her to anyone in need of legal services that she specializes in.

Coming from New York City, I've worked with many attorneys in business and non-business matters. As recent Florida reseident, my Dad who is also a former New York City resident researched multiple attorneys in mid the Florida area, and based on the results, we decided to work with Wendy. We were both pleased and relieved when we visited Wendy at her office for the first time. She was very easy to work with, gave us the necessary attention, and was quite pleasant. Moreover we discovered she was very knowledgable and transparent in her communications and processes. We trusted her and enjoyed her efficient work ethic throughout the entire process. We hope not to need too much in legal services in the future, but if we do, we certainly know who our family attorney is, and will be for years to come. Although we miss somethings about New York City, we don't miss the attorneys, thanks to Wendy :) Quite refreshing!

Wendy got things done! When I was trying to close my late Mother's FL bank account, another FL attorney told me that since my Mother passed away in IL, I needed an IL attorney. He got nowhere with the FL bank. I called Mom's former FL attorney again and was told AGAIN that I needed an IL attorney. I contacted Wendy, had a phone consultation, she suggested how we could get the money released....And She Did It!
Wendy communicates well and informed me of the process as it was happening! I will probably never need another FL attorney, but if I did, I would definitely contact Wendy Mara.

Wendy was very helpful when it came to revising our wills. She explained everything in detail that we needed to know. Wendy met with us at times that were convenient for both my husband and myself and everything was done in a very timely and professional manner. I would highly recommend her.

Wendy Mara is an excellent lawyer. She took over, from another lawyer, what seemed to be a very simple probate. My brother died and she inherited the case. As she was reviewing the case, she realized that the will had not been witnessed by all parties. This presented a huge problem with the Florida courts. Wendy never wavered. Her attention to detail was unprecedented. She was always engaged with the issues concerning the probate and never failed to stay in touch. I would highly recommend Wendy Mara for any legal advice you may have.

When I was served foreclosure papers on my daughter's townhouse that I had co-signed, I didn't know what to do. I called Wendy to see if she could help me out of this mess. In less than a year the townhouse was sold in a short sale. She knew the right people to contact and kept me informed as the sale went forward. I don't think the property would have sold if I had not hired a knowledgable lawyer! Thank you so much Wendy for all your help. I truly appreciate all that you did for me.

I am very pleased with the way my matter was handled. I was kept informed every step of the way. Any inquiries I had were responded to on the same day. I found everyone in the office of Mara & Mara to be very professional, respectful, and knowledgeable. My matter was finalized sooner than I expected. If I ever need legal representation again, I would not hesitate to contact the office of Mara & Mara.

Wendy Mara provided valuable information for my wife and I to consider while changing our living wills, advance directives and other estate planning documents to comply with Florida laws. Her work was done very timely and accurately and we feel quite comfortable knowing that our estate planning documents are all in order. I would highly recommend Mara & Mara.
