The caring, sensitivity given by staff for your situation
Claudia is the best! Love this woman. She made my life better not just legally but also by being my friend. Thank you so much for being you.
My primary choice for recommendation on Family Law and Mediation. I have known them for years and they are one of the key places that understands and is effective with Father issues. I learned about them when I was helping with the Raleigh Men's Center years ago. I would also recommend them to a woman and Mother as well. Thanks for doing such a good job with the clients I have recommended to you they always come back and thank me.
Claudia is an amazing attorney....but she is much more than just an attorney. She is a wonderful, caring, compassionate and loving lady. And best of all, a Friend.
John McNeil and the attorneys who work with him are absolutely awesome. John has mediated many extremely difficult, complex divorce cases for my clients and me, and every single time, we have reached a settlement. He is very knowledgeable and has the right temperament to persuade and explain things to people while also making them feel heard. His staff are also professional, kind, and efficient. I will continue to use John McNeil as a mediator in my family law cases and highly recommend him!
