easy peasy lemon squeezy
Mary was a great help answering questions and filing my divorce. If you can work out a deal with your spouse, then hiring someone like Mary to assist you is the best way to go. If you want to fight it out with your spouse, the only people getting rich will be the Lawyers.

Very Knowledgable, Professional, Compassionate
Mary is absolutely stellar in her job Some jobs are a subject to true vocation and must only be occupied by people of pure heart, consise intentions and strong mind. Mary is all of the mentioned. Her wholesome, strong, clever approach to the case and personable and kind attitude towards me as a client made all the difference in choosing her over anybody else to represent my tricky case of protection order. She is very well versed in law of multiple categories as well that I needed an advise in. What a luck to have come across her.
