    Claire represented me in my child support modification case & was outstanding. Her & her asst Sherry were always quick to get back to me which was difficult since I was living overseas. She gave me HONEST & accurate legal advice & was EXTREMELY prepared for court. Every case is different, but Claire definitely does her best to represent you. In my situation, the judge awarded me a large increase in child support, back dated the arrears to date he was served & ordered him to pay my lawyers fees.

    I would not recommend Clair Mehaffey to anyone. I hired her to get full custody
    of my daughter because she was being sexually molested by the her maternal uncle.
    When my wife and I sat down with Claire and explained the situation, she said
    that this was going to be an open and close case and she could get a temporary
    custody order signed as soon as she got her retainer fee of $3500.00. For my
    daughter's protection, we managed to pay her in full and she said the documents
    were ready to be sign by the judge.I was fortunate of the timing because according
    to Claire's assistant, Claire got the judge to sign the temporary order while my
    daughter was still in my custody so the law firm advised me there was no need to
    return her to her mother. Little did I know, the judge didn't sign the paper until
    the next day and I was convinced to go against my current court orders.
    I attended the first court hearing and Claire came in 5 minutes before the
    court time unprepared. Unfortunately, the judge denied the motion to keep my
    daughter because of the previous events leading up to not giving her back.
    After Claire recieved her retainer fee, she left me in the dark and never
    communicated with me. When I would call her, I gave her assistant a callback
    message and my call was never returned. The day before the final hearing, I
    got an unexpected call from Claire's assistant to come to the office and sign
    some papers for court. Claire was not in the office, so the assistant went
    over the paperwork I signed and told me I needed to bring my Tax returns to
    court the next day. The next day, Claire showed up 2 minutes before we were
    required to start and asked me if I still wanted full custody or if I was willing to
    go back to the original court orders. I thought it was odd for her to ask that
    seeing as I originally hired her to get full custody
