I was put into an employment situation that required immediate assistance. Ann-Marie was recommended to me by my most trusted friend in the industry. I will say first and foremost that this is an attorney who cares about her clients. Her immediate attention is what gave me the guidance I needed to resolve what became an extremely difficult situation that she handled with professionalism and care. She explored every avenue to achieve the best outcome possible and never discounted my feelings in the process. I cannot give her enough praise, and I was so very lucky to have come to know her even if under difficult circumstances. She is truly the best.

We were very fortunate to be referred to Ann-Marie by another atty for awrongful discharge from employment. We were very impressed not only with her professionalism and integrity but also with her empathy and compassionate caring of our circumstance. She resolved our settlement quickly and to our extreme satisfaction. I would highly recommend Ann-Marie to anyone seeking a top-notch professional atty.

I had never hired a Lawyer in my entire life (over 55 years) until a little over a year. I personally interviewed four law firms all who wanted me as their client, but only Ann-Marie Ahern stood head and shoulders above everyone else.
The legal process can be very intimidating, especially, if you are a novice to the whole affair. Ann-Marie Ahern and her colleagues at MLCL were outstanding. I never felt left in the dark. They explained everything to me in a professional manner, advised me and consulted with me when necessary.
I was the most impressed with my case results. I ended up with a very reasonable settlement. At no time, did I feel that my Lawyer gave me a pie in the sky expectation regarding my personal case. Instead, I was given the truth and realistic advice.
Everyone that I met or worked with at MLCL was a gem and a true professional. You would be lucky to have Ann-Marie Ahern as your Attorney. There is no one else that I would want to represent me in my legal affairs. No one.
