My situation is unique and I was treated with competence and respect. Even when I was demanding and time pressured in my requests I was always treated with courtesy and in a timely manner.
I consider the value of the legal assistance and documents received to be equal to the money spent!
I highly recommend this firm for discrete and excellent legal service.
I was so concerned for my son that I contacted this law firm late in the afternoon, and late in the week, with a request to get before the court and protect my son. I was seen immediately as soon as I called. The timely filing for initial custody, and knowing my options was very reassuring. I spent some money for the court process, but the custody of my son is priceless. I strongly recommend this firm"
Please let me thank you for being such an effective representative for me at the settlement conference. I had no idea what to expect, what to ask for or how to respond to much of what was presented to me. I feel confident, from your help, that I have the necessary assets to prepare for the future - for the children and for myself.
Thank you and to Ms. Forrler for seeing my son through this matter. Your phrase "sometimes you just need an attorney" was most fitting for this occasion. Again, Thanks"
I truly feel the divorce between my wife and I could not have been handled more smoothly. Thank you. I feel the value of the legal assistance and documents received was equal to the money I spent. All of my questions, and that of my wife's, were answered in a timely and satisfactory manner. Thank you again.
I greatly appreciate all your hard work and you have done an excellent job on my behalf. I greatly appreciate your help through this difficult time. This contested divorce was over a year to resolve through the courts. I was pleased with your handling of the trial and the success I now have with the parenting plan, allowing me to be the dad I want to be. Even though the cost was over one hundred thousand dollars, the value to me is well beyond that and for my sons, priceless. I will recommend you to my fellow physicians and others who need a top rated and successful litigator to protect their parental rights.
I would like to thank all of you for your deeds of kindness and well wishes. THANK YOU ----GOD BLESS----JV
"This was a very difficult and emotional situation for me, but I felt positive and was reassured by Heather. It made it all so much easier."
"Using Cordial Divorce was especially good for our children: we did not argue about divorce details or time with the children in front of them. The children knew we were splitting, but they also knew that the divorce had nothing to do with them and they didn't, and don't, feel like it was their "fault". If we had chosen to get divorced the traditional way, using separate attorneys, we would have spent far more money, and using PayPal to pay our invoices was great: easy, fast, and safe!"
"Both of us were treated with equal courtesy and respect, something you don't usually get when two people are involved in this type of process. Heather treated us both with compassion and caring, and we saved a lot of money. Thank you, Heather."
Thanks so much for all you did for us. Your patience at the end was especially appreciated. I wish you well, and will pass your name along to anyone I know who can make use of your excellent services. Thanks for offering couples like Will and I a peaceful and affordable alternative to the conventional legal system!
Your calm, professional demeanor was reassuring and gave me confidence in your knowledge and skill. I appreciated your flexibility in scheduling meetings outside of the normal work week and at locations that were easy to get to without a car. I also appreciated that you detailed all the options available for a divorce in WA, with a description of pluses and minuses.
After my ex-spouse ignored the initial divorce paperwork, I appreciated that you sought an inexpensive, creative solution to ensure he received the documents at his last known address in Israel.
In addition, I am grateful that you kept track of all filing dates and ensured that the all necessary paperwork was filed as soon as the waiting period was over, without me having to remind you or ask what was going on with my case.
I am also grateful that you provided me with options to finalize the divorce without having to appear in court. This was a huge relief for me.
Lastly, I appreciated your thoroughness and knowledge of family law and that there were no surprises, except that the divorce was finalized about 30 days earlier than I expected.
Lynda has provided Edith and me with extraordinarily thoughtful legal advice and counsel. She is an attorney who also shows rare community devotion. So when my family needed a guiding hand for legal work, choosing her was virtually automatic. We remain assured of fine service, with the fringe benefit of enduring friendship.
So often you go to people for services and they don't listen. Lynda always listens so she can understand our needs.
Lynda McMaken is exactly the kind of attorney most people seek but never find. She is sharp, well diversified, highly responsive and above all, fair and ethical. Since 1997 I have trusted Lynda with business law, employment law and my estate planning. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
I have been a friend and client of Lynda McMaken for the past ten years and feel very fortunate that our paths crossed in life. She is a special person.
While many people were involved in the effort to pass the island's Open Space Bond, Lynda's extraordinary contribution deserves special acclaim. She founded the political action group, Friends of Bainbridge, and took the lead in raising nearly $30,000 in small donations and coordinating the winning campaign.
"Lynda was our legal counsel in New York City to capture funding for our projects. She was on our side of the table at one of the top law firms in Manhatten. She worked hard for our successful results and because of her we were able to obtain 3.8 million dollars in funding for three new corporations. We could not have done it without her.
As a public figure I needed to be careful about proceeding with my divorce. I choose Lynda McMaken because I knew she was an excellent attorney and that she would help me stay balanced as I went through my non contested divorce. Both my husband and I were treated fairly, thus avoiding the nightmare seen in so many divorces. Divorce is always difficult, yet Lynda's kindness and wisdom kept the process civil and emotionally manageable. I whole heartedly recommend her law office to anyone contemplating divorce, or needing business law or estate planning legal services.
