Child Support Modification
Ms. Malsby and her staff were friendly and very accesible. They answered all my questions and explained things in a way that allowed me, as a non lawyer, to gain an understanding of the law and issues I never had before.

Felicia Anne Malsby
Felicia was collaborative to the point of acquiescense. I felt like my wife had two lawyers - hers and mine. Felicia didn't challenge anything presented by my wife and her lawyer. Her representation didn't approach the "assertive representation" described on her web site.

Very biased
I was trying to get a modification to my parenting plan and residential time. We were sent to Felicia to try and mediate things first, before litigating the matter bc we had a collaborative divorce. She was very biased to me (the father) and didn't listen to anything I had to say. She backed up my ex wife who lied through her teeth even when I had proof to the contrary. She expressed that all my wishes were me being controlling and I needed to learn to accept things. She also stated that I was unreasonable and no judge would ever grant me what I was asking for even though they are very standard parenting plan provisions. She was clearly sided with my ex wife and as a result my ex wouldn't even discuss the things I asked for. Felicia was very hostile to me and not a nuetral third party like a mediator should be. My ex wife got all the things she wanted while I walked away feeling like I just woke up from a nightmare. I wish I could go back and had done research on her bc I never would have gone to her! I would never, ever send anyone to her. She is very unethical in her practices. She is clearly easily persuaded to take sides. Horrible, HORRIBLE experience!

Poor/Overly Priced/ Biased Attorney
Felicia Malsby was recommended to be part of a mediation meeting between me and my ex-husband for the purpose of creating a visitation calendar. The mediator (Jamie) and Felicia Malsby charge an appalling amount ($400.00 per hour) for the services they provide. They both stated biased opinions, did not aid in the solution of creating a visitation calendar, and did not want to go according to the specifics of the parenting plan which was decided upon through a trial and court orders by a respected judge. Both Felicia Malsby and Jamie wanted only to take suggestions my ex-husband made for visitation, disregarding specifics of the plan, or my recommendations. Felicia Malsby charged an additional $400.00 at the end of the meeting for 'prep work'.

Wishing I could go back a year
I hired Felicia last year for my divorce. This was an easy non-confrontational divorce. Because of this, I thought my cost would be reasonable. Was I WRONG!!! Felicia is money hungry! My "easy" collaborative divorce cost me 5 times more then my friends that used other attorneys. I wish I could go back a year, and do it all over again with an ethical attorney.
