That validation was worth its weight in Gold.
My team, Margaret Quartararo, her paralegal, Jacquelynn Chaffee, and Grace Rowe were comforting, professional, prepared, and easy to correspond with. There were months of preparation leading to a very stressful morning. But once, we got into court, I realized, that my team was heads and shoulders above the rest. Margaret was efficient, eloquent, and respectful. She put us at ease. And she talked me down off of the ledge many many times. As a Mom, RN, Fitness Instructor, and active parent at my kids school, scheduling phone calls, Zooms, and paperwork was very difficult. Im incredibly grateful to a patient, efficient team to keep me on task, and help me gain perspective. We eventually ended up in mediation. I was very impressed to see our mediator’s response to Margaret. Margaret was typing and correcting directly into a copy of the Parenting Plan that we eventually agreed upon. She had a completed document by the end of our 5.5hr session. I got very emotional. But she stayed focused, efficient, and task-oriented helping me to cope and continue on. It was a very long day. I have endless gratitude for her and our team for the days and weeks that followed leading to our final resolution. Most importantly, she brought appropriate boundaries between my family, and my children’s father’s family. She recognized the work I put into managing their lives and mine. I have a wonderful therapist. But even my therapist recognized my need for advocacy. I should’ve gone to Margaret with everything much much sooner. Don’t wait. Things will not get better. People do not change, or behave better “someday”. Get the person in your corner, who will guide you through the mess to a manageable life and schedule. Her validation & support was worth its weight in Gold. Thank You.

Kind and professional
Margaret and her team were kind and thoughtful as well as professional and informative, during a difficult time. I was kept informed at each step but not sent correspondence over what was needed and that helped keep the costs down. I highly recommend this team.
