Mary was recommended by a friend. I was a mess and very stressed. The way Mary treated me it felt like we were family. She was very supportive, helpful and held my hand through my messy divorce. I highly recommend her! Thank you Mary!

Excellent Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working with Mary twice dealing with child support. She was always quickly available, pursed all avenues thoroughly and was my trusted advocate. She successfully presented my cases in mediation and before a judge. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney that will professionaly represent their case and be a trusted advocate.

Excellent representation!
I hired Mary to represent me in a complex divorce case and I highly recommend her as a skilled, thoughtful and thorough attorney who cares deeply about doing the right thing. Mary is a professional, well organized, forward-thinking, lawyer with the ability to see and respond to what is most needed in the moment. She is a tenacious litigator when needed and a pragmatic, fair-minded negotiator. I would highly recommend Mary Nardi for anyone in need of a skilled attorney to represent their best interests.

Caring and Helpful!
Ms. Nardi was a great attorney and did an excellent job representing me. Although my case was very minor, she made sure to spend time going over every single detail with me and was great at answering all of my questions and concerns. I would absolutely reccomend Mary to anyone looking for a supportive and understanding lawyer!

Sole Custody
Years ago I was faced with the challenge of betrayal and deceit. In the middle was a young child in need of loving parents. The accusations were insane, but this did not delay the proceedings against me and I paid the cost for an act that I did NOT commit. During this process I could only think of my child and what it was being subjected to. The process was long and painful, but in the end justice prevailed and I was awarded Sole Custody. Mary's representation was strong and She saw through all of the deceptions. She fought with her heart and gave me a life with my child. I am forever grateful. If anyone should have the need for a strong counsel, I would highly recommend Mary without reservation.

Family law case
I was honored to have Mary Nardi as my attorney to whom I entrusted my family law case. I found her to be thorough, consistent with her approach, had a strong grasp of the law, and knew how to strategically assemble a case. Her office staff is excellent. She knows the preferences and tendencies of the judges and opposing attorneys. My case went to trial and we won. Mary was a true partner and was a strong provider of guidance. She came recommended to me and I wish to do the same. Thank you, Mary...

Thorough and Effective!
I have worked with Mary and her staff over the past four years with my divorce and appreciate her thoroughness and responsiveness. She was able to get many difficult issues resolved. I now enjoy a collaborative relationship with my ex with regard to our kids. I highly recommend Mary!

Very Caring Attorney!
I hired Mary Nardi, in 2010 for a very complicated custody issue. I am happy to say that the issue was resolved after Mary fought for us. Mary is very experienced, knowlegable, caring, and has a great staff. I will continue to use Mary for any future family law matters. I highly recommend Mary!

I hired Mary for my family law case. Over a period of four years, she was always very responsive to our needs. I could trust and rely on her during these difficult times. Highly recommended.

Excellent attorney!
I hired Mary Nardi to handle my divorce in 2006 and have used her twice since then to help with alimony and child support issues. She is thorough, informative and accessible. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a great divorce attorney.

First-rate attorney!
Ms. Nardi was so helpful to me when I was considering divorce. She provided me with complete, specific information regarding my rights in the situation, which helped me weigh all of my options and to act in a rational, less-emotional manner.

I'm very happy to read that Mary Mardi did, indeed, help some of her clients; however, I read that she did not help some others and had an excuse, as usual, for why she didn't. Mary Nardi did absolutely nothing to help me during my divorce because I would not play the game of being mentally abused by my ex-husband and needing lifetime psychological counseling. In truth, the only mental abuse I sustained was caused by her poor handling of my case and enlisting or allowing people to be involved who never should have been including my grown up children and the resulting problems and stress it has caused between us ever since. She did not talk to me but had time to talk to others and had the audacity to schedule my last day in court on my wedding anniversary and then when she saw me said "Happy Anniversary" as if it were a joke or something I should be happy about when it ruined my entire life and caused me to lose everything I had worked for before and during my marriage. This happened almost 25 years ago and to this day it has caused my life to be extremely stressful and caused me to endure hardship then, now and will forever. She certainly does not care about all women but may possibly put forth more effort to those who are "womens libbers" and trying to be politically correct for the Nancy Pelosis of the country. I would definitely never recommend anyone to her and have known other female attorneys who were quite the opposite and whom have my utmost respect. Her husband, however, seemed very caring, believed me and was quite the gentleman. I hope by now he is able to take clients on his own which he told me back then he could not do as he didn't have as much experience. Unequivocally, she destroyed my life.

If you want attorney that Will take your money and not look out for you or your children but talk nice to your face, tell you what you want to hear and then in the end really screw you then hire Mary.She took me for a lot, accomplished nearly nothing, and offered no refund for bad service. Not good representation at all

Not worthed !!!!
I was promised the world by her and she did even get done half of what she promised. Her fees are extreme and by dragging the process makes it even worst. Can not get a hold of her and when you do she is very arrogant telling you how to act and what to say in order to win............. Anyone is better off making things work with the other party or representing themselves

I hired Mary Nardi in early 2015 to handle the divorce between my wife and I. I emailed her several questions in late 2015 and needed an answer to those questions in order to proceed with some financial decisions re the settlement of the divorce. After numerous attempts to get the questions answered by Ms. Nardi, and multiple excuses by her staff, over a month long, or more period, I was forced to fire her and hire another lawyer at an additional cost 0f $3000.00. My new lawyer was able to answer the simple questions I posed to Ms, Nardi in two days, and the settlement was agreed upon in the next week with my wife.

Response from Mary Nardi April 5, 2016
So sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction. Unless I am unavailable due to trials, mediation, scheduled vacations or office closure due to the holidays, I am available for scheduled appointments either by phone or in person at my office. Since my office staff is unable to provide legal advice, it is possible that they did not feel comfortable answering questions. I always encourage my clients to call and schedule a time to come into the office to sit down and talk with me and it is my practice to make myself available as soon as reasonably possible.
