She is the master of protraction and outrageous charges. She sells herself very well, but she is not worth the money. More importantly you should know that she didn't communicate to me what was offered from the other side. This protracted the process, resulting in more money in her pocket!!

I came to her in desperation, she gave me hope but during the protracted process, I came to the realization at the end that she is the master of deceptive practices. She makes you believe that she is fighting for you but the only objective is to protract the process and suck the money out of you. I would advice that a family member or a friend should convey to the other party what is on the table so you are aware what is proposed. Don't be surprised if you find out that she wasn't relating to you what was proposed from the other side.

Your search is over. You have found your lawyer. Her name is Mary Clark. She did more for me in two months than my previous lawyer did in one year. She settled my case, got me everything I was entitled to by law, and did all of this without going to trial, which my previous "low-cost" lawyer never could have done, because she lacked both the ability and desire to do it. She's not cheap, you say? Consider NOT ONLY the SHORT-TERM COST of legal fees while you are going through your divorce, but ALSO the LONG-TERM COST to you if you don't get what you're entitled to in the settlement. You have a good case and that should be enough, you say? It's not enough. You MUST have a good lawyer or you will lose everything. My previous lawyer acquiesced on one thing after another court date after court date regardless of what the law said, and she didn't know my case or care. Mary Clark told me what I was entitled to under the law in my very first consultation with her and the settlement turned out almost exactly as she said it would. Don't just take my word for it. When I started the search for another lawyer, I asked a divorced friend who his lawyer was, and he said emphatically "You don't want my lawyer! You want my ex-wife's lawyer, Mary Clark. She took me to school!" When I asked a friend who worked in the courthouse who the best lawyer is, she said without hesitation "Mary Clark." Not only is Mary the best, but so are her other lawyers and staff including Valerie, Kristin, Niko, and Michele, and anyone else who may have touched my case behind the scenes. They are all smart, hardworking, professional, organized, efficient, empathetic, and determined to do everything in their power to get you the settlement you deserve. And if Mary wasn't available, nothing EVER got lost in translation whether it was information that I provided by email or phone. And my case was small potatoes compared to the other cases Clark & Steiner handles. Yet, Mary and her staff never once made me feel unimportant. I will post this information on every single web site like this, because it's the least I can do after all Mary did for me. I am eternally grateful.
