    What do you say when you cannot say enough about a true professional? Mary Quinn is not a multi function attorney, she is a laser guided law machine. Mary Quinn took my case under unusual circumstances, 1 month from trial, after I had lost confidence in another attorney. She went into what I now call "Mary mode", where you feel like you are her only client. Only hire Mary if you want the best in Tampa and are willing to do what she tells you. Trusted and highly recommended.

    Ms. Quinn will help you understand the complete process of divorce and help you make the right decisions for you and your family. My divorce case was a nightmare. I'd lost my ability to compromise with my ex-wife. Mary single-handedly resurrected negotiations with opposing counsel and saved me from a costly court appearance. She focused on my prorities, she was kind, patient, professional, and persistent!! She explained everything to me and treated me like her only client!! She is the VERY BEST!

    She is knowledgeable on the basics but she did not understand our divorce case and several things were mismanaged. There is more than will write here but a basic overview: Papers were misfiled with a fellow client and some were lost. Last month, received a financial affidavit from another client of hers (and my divorce was final months ago with no correspondence with Mary since that time). Confidentiality breach while working with her and after our divorce was complete. Failure to provide proper legal guidance that would allow more efficient handling of paperwork and help manage attorney expenditures. Example, had initial court date set for divorce, but already had mediation underway and a follow up mediation shortly after the scheduled court date. Requested we consider cancelling court and Mary Quinn stated the court date could not be cancelled. That same day, received notice of request from opposing counsel to cancel courtdate until after second mediation meeting stating there may not be a no need for court until mediation agreement complete (or if the mediator will no longer be used and both parties wish to proceed directly through the courts). In open discussion on billing, Mary Quinn confirmed there would be no surprises and any time the retainer was close to a zero balance, additional funds would need paid up front as she did wish to work without funds already in hand. That provided great comfort to me in our opening discussions. Actual billing came every two months and with me owing more than double any retainers. After first bill, shared would need to know billing as it was happening and avoid additional surprises. Was informed by Mary Quinn to read the actual contract I signed at beginning of divorce proceedings and, she was correct, it did state billing would be periodic. The discrepancy between verbal vs. written was a big disappointment and did not help when going through a divorce. In email correspondence. Documents shared stated read and share your thoughts. Several were much like a foreign language to me and there would be no thoughts to share. It would have been helpful to receive documents with simple summary stating this is what this really means and here is my recommendation. Shared this on numerous occassions and gave examples of what would help to expedite our communication and stay focused on the divorce. The request was repeatedly refused. It was difficult to write this but felt the importance of sharing as the list is much longer than what shared here. It is not a customer scorned, rather, a prior client that felt it necessary to share with others to proceed with caution and use the above information when seeking attorney assistance - to have more knowledge than I -things are not always what they seem

    Failed to follow through on most points brought up.
    Quite expensive; expected an interested attorney who wanted to help clients more than collecting the considerable fees.
    Cuts ties with clients and sends out a "final" bill so that the client will not recontact this attorney with complaints on service. Once the client goes away, the "final" bill goes away.

    I provide mediation services to attorney Quinn and other attorneys. As a certified family mediator and after having litigated for about 17 years myself, I know the difference between the attorneys who create litigation and mislead their clients and those who, like attorney Quinn, use their knowledge, experience and communication skills to settle matters before the parties enter into the "high conflict" phases.

    Attorney Quinn's treatment of these difficult cases is such that the clients feel protected, while they know the importance of maintaining the integrety of the process; something that is so often violated by parties as well as, unfortunately, attorneys. If the cases can be settled, attorney Quinn endeavors to do just that, always keeping in mind the safety of her clients or the importance of defending certain allegations. A rare ability, indeed!

    For years now, I have litigated with attorney Quinn. More recently I have served as a mediator in many of her cases. She has always demonstrated the utmost standard of ethics; she has always exhibited a solid knowledge of the law and has never stepped away from its proper application, which often times meant a less lucrative case. She use excellent communication skills with her clients. She continuously demonstrates an ability to remain professional when others may not be.
