I hired daphne about a year ago and she has done absolutely nothing for my case. She will tell you what you want to hear and then not show up not call or answer her phone. We could have saved a little more money and got a real attorney.

Where do I start. It is completely obvious that Ms. Macklin has absolutely zero experience when it comes to family law. We always met at a Starbucks or other random places and just the state that my file was in was absolutely appalling. It was completely unorganized, she did everything last minute, and she did nothing correctly. She was completely submissive in court, and as my case was one involving an infant, her lack of fight or drive was disgusting. I genuinely believe that for the sake of us parents out there in a difficult position trying to protect our children, Ms. Macklin needs to quit. She has no business doing what she does. She could not even get her facts straight and she was very rude and would not listen to my concerns. Please stay away from her unless you want a terrible attorney representing you. She will lose your case for you; it is obvious she doesn't truly care, down to how she presented herself in court, she was a complete mess and a joke. I wasted a year with her getting bad information and horrible results.

She didnt show in court the last two dates, it has been over a year. Then she text my brother to tell him she was withdrawing from my case for personal problems. Left me hanging and with no attorney.

Attorney Macklin repeatedly provides accurate, detailed, and helpful answers that address the needs of the individuals posting their questions on Avvo. She is highly regarded in the legal community for her skills and expertise. Attorney Macklin is a true credit and asset to the legal profession, and potential clients would be very wise to have someone like her on their side. I endorse this lawyer.
