    Linda is an incredible lawyer. She goes above and beyond and walks you through the entire process of what typically is a very difficult in many peoples lives. She helped me win a graduated 50-50 custody schedule in a highly contested custody case against a stay at home mom that made great attempts to limit my contact with my minor children and try to establish a status quo. You absolutely get what you pay for with Linda, and if you listen to her, will not be disappointed!

    Linda Sayed and team have exceeded all standards of professional demeanor, intelligence, talent, wisdom, experience, and genuine concern for their clients. We have benefited from many great legal professionals through the years. Never more so than when we needed a family lawyer. Linda has been a true blessing to us and will be for anyone lucky enough to have her represent them.

    Christopher Behm is one of the two leading attorneys in homeowners association law in our market for legal services of Wilmington, NC, and New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties. He is an obvious point of referral for clients which are homeowners associations or who are having homeowners association issues when our firm cannot handle the matter.

    I have made many referrals of clients to Linda Sayed, and in my opinion she is one of the most respected Family Law/Divorce/Domestic Relations attorneys practicing in Wilmington, NC. She has handled unusual cases through successful appeal, including annulment of same-sex marriages in a State that does not recognize same sex marriage. She is not afraid of a fight but she is not one to make a fight of a matter than can and should be settled. She has a excellent courtroom trial skills.
