Fabulous lawyer--wonderful office
Mr. Maynor and his staff know what they are doing, and do their best to further their client's interests, without gauging them, or doing unnecessary work to drive the bills up. They took care of everything, and Mr. Maynor gave me great advice about the legal issues in my case, helping me to iron out the kinks with my ex, and move things along in an expeditious and professional manner. Mark is an EXCELLENT lawyer who I recommend highly.

Job well done.
With the help of Mark and his team I was able to start a new chapter in my life. I came to him distraught and scared and walked away confident and with peace of mind. My son and I are in a good place now.....Thank You Mark!

I am a single mother with limited resources. I had many hurdles in my divorce process. Both Shawn and Karen were exceptional, knowledgeable and caring. My only regret in not going to them sooner . I tried to file for divorce on my own . They really helped me get through a tough time.

Best Lawyer Ever!
I can't thank Mark and his team enough for helping me get through one of the toughest times of my life and handling my divorce. He is extremely knowledgeable and always had my best interest in mind. His paralegal (JoAnne) is absolutely amazing. They are truly available almost 24/7. I had an emergency on the weekend and needed advice. I sent an email to everyone at the law office and actually got a response over the weekend. There were times when I would receive emails after hours so I know the team works around the clock for their clients. What I was most impressed about was the fact that they actually cared about me as a person and not just another client. I wasn't just a number to them I was an actual human being. They were so detailed and very through with every part of my divorce. they always made me feel that everything was going to be ok. Their follow-up with me was stellar and very professional. I could go on and on about this firm. I would recommend all my friends and family to him. He not only cares but has a great deal of knowledge in family law. The team was always suggesting ways I could save money instead of them billing me for hours not needed. I am so appreciate of Mark and his team. I can only say this is the best team if you want someone who actually cares about you and your needs.

Excellent law firm
When I suddenly and unexpectedly needed the assistance of an attorney specializing in family law, I came to Mark Maynor. Several friends and family members recommended Maynor and Associates as they knew of Mr. Maynor's excellent reputation and extensive experience. Mr. Maynor's professionalism is second to none and the firm's incredibly hard-working and caring staff, have diligently and tirelessly worked on my behalf and in the best interests of my children. Throughout what can be an exhausting and difficult time, it is imperative to have an outstanding, trustworthy, and reputable legal team. I will always be glad I chose Mark, Jo Ann, Wendy and the rest of his amazing team of professionals.

Mark et al
Mark and his team provided me with true support throughout my divorce proceedings, not only from a legal perspective but also on a personal basis. It didn't make the process any easier, but certainly it made it more manageable than anticipated, due to his personal touch and responsive attitude. Thank you, Jim

My Divorce Attorney- Great Guy!!!! One of the BEST!!!
I used Mark when going the worst experience of my life, a divorce. He and his staff: Jo Ann, Lee Ann, Wendy and Susan were so supportive. They were always there for me. An Absolutely wonderful, kind and caring group of people. It was clear when we went to court to finalize my divorce the respect Mark has in the courtroom. The judge commended Mark on his handeling of my case. He is very well known in the courtroom and has only highest respect of his peers. I was blown away by the compliments the judge game him on the handeling of my case. Mark is a superior attorney. I highly recommend him and his fabulous group of people. Terese

The best around
I won my case, and was even awarded attorney fees. I had a very complicated case with my ex concerning my children, that went to trial. My ex did everything she could to make the issues difficult on all of us. Once I hired Maynor & Associates they were able to stop the games and produce results. My case needed attention, experience, and compassion all of which were provided by Maynor & Associates. As for Mr. Maynor, he has an Intelligent and commanding presence in and out of the courtroom. You’ll feel very comfortable knowing that he’s the one on your side and not the other way around. Mark Maynors’ team of lawyers, paralegals, and assistants (Jo Ann, Wendy, lee Ann, Jackie, Karen and Susan) are the icing on the cake for this firm as they are all highly trained and knowledgeable, and always there to help. The billing was more than fair and well worth it. If you want to be represented by the best Family law attorney, hire Maynor & Associates before your ex does.

The Best in a Bad Situation
Going through divorce is awful on a good day, but Mr. Maynor's calm demeanor, reassuring manner and knowledge were a comfort throughout the entire process. He is fair, works for his money and will get a fair settlement. I highly recommend this attorney.

His reputation is stellar for a reason
Mr Maynor handled my divorce case and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He's responsive, answering some of my late night emails and his office kept me informed about every aspect of my case. He thinks outside of the box and doesn't miss a beat. He was referred by my accountant and now I can say that I agree with what I've heard about him. He's a sharp attorney and I would recommend him to anyone who is going through a divorce.
