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!

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'.

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.

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 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.
