I hired Mary to assist me with child support issues with my ex-husband. She is fantastic. She knows exactly what she is talking about and where to go before you can even finish your sentence. She doesn't let you sweat the small stuff that will only stress you out even more, she dives into the case head first with no nonsense. She is honest and will tell you exactly what she thinks without sugar coating anything so that you don't have false hopes. I would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or having to go back to court for a breech in your agreement. I will absolutely give her a call if/when I need her again!

Mary has a great demeanor about her, she is direct, and helps you understand the key points of your case as opposed to worrying about the nonsense that comes with divorce cases. Her honesty and her insight enabled me to stay focused on the key items and not get lost in the rhetoric. When opposing counsel tried to take our case off track, she acted decisively and swiftly to ensure that we only discussed the items before the Court. This saved time, money and allowed us to settle the items before the Court in a clear and decisive manner.
I recommend Mary to any potential client who needs a lawyer that is focused, puts their clients issues first, and gives you straight factual talk (as opposed to feeding emotional rhetoric). She is a first class act.
