      If you need clear, concise, and easy to understand instructions for a divorce, I highly recommend Mary Commander in Norfolk. She and the entire office have unbelievable quick and accurate responses. Communications throughout the office were impeccable. What could have been a very long drawn out contested divorce ended up being a non-contested one thanks to much of her feedback, based on her vast experience. I will always be grateful for her guidance and prompt, professional responses.

      As a divorce attorney, Mary was diligent, competent and a great negotiator. As a representative for fathers' rights and fighting for my rights as a father and how much I had to pay, she wasn't great. Facts pertinent to the child support case were ignored and less than 6 months after the order for child support was made, I am being faced with having to declare bankruptcy due to her failure to fight my case.
