Ms Brown, is an Extraordinary person, she’s calm, very professional, has a wonderful personality easy to work with and always has your best interests in mind. She handed my “nasty” divorce in such a calm and professional way that it shocked me and the opposing side. She doesn’t talk too much or annoys the judge but when she does it is right on point. I highly recommend this amazing person. I can be grateful enough to Ms Brown.

It was recommended to me that I get in touch with Mary Katherine through an acquaintance who works in the field. I can confidently say it was one of the best decisions I had made. I went through a complicated separation process and custody battle over my two year old son; my case was extremely challenging and before I retained the services of Mary Katherine it seemed as though all was lost. Mary Katherine and Eoin O' Mahony worked tirelessly on my case and managed to guarantee my access to my son and reach an agreement that protected my relationship with him and secured my status as his father. They did so with the utmost of professionalism, compassion, and generosity. I truly cannot recommend her warmly enough.
