What Our Clients Say

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.
