What our clients say


When I received a letter from the court in MD to attend a hearing as my ex-spouse asked for full custody of our only child, I was out of words as I'm living in Africa plus I'm non US citizen/resident and there are serious immigrational barriers for me to travel to the US, what really exacerbated the situation is the country I was living in is under strict US financial sanctions there are no means of direct payment to the firm nor I have any valid debit/credit card to pay McKeon law firm for their services, to make things worse the country I was living in has an inflation rate of 20% per 2 weeks and its currency depreciates in value in a fast pace.The most rational option for me would have been is not to contest the divorce and award my ex-spouse full custody, additionally I would have totally understood and accepted if the law firm would have declined to assist me in the case, as helping me would have been considered a total financial loss for the law firm as the stakes are too high, however what followed has completely taken me by surprise they not only understood my situation but I felt some sort of personal connection between  me and the staff and the urgency to deal with the situation in the most professional manner, resolving my case became a priority over any financial risks for the law firm, that eventually led to a divorce settlement that has given me legitimate rights over my child in the US despite the fact that I lived in Africa, McKeon law firm can't thank you enough for your assistance in the most stressful  times of my life and special appreciation goes to "Jessica Kern"

Shelly and Pam both were my attorney and I wish I knew them first before I wasted my time and money to my previous one. The McKeon are the best.

Shelly D. McKeon

Shelly D. McKeon is an exceptional attorney, efficient and effective and a caring individual. She knows what facts to gather and how to use them in the case. My personal case involved children and her genuine concern for the children was apparent. She gave excellent advice, but was always willing to listen and consider your thoughts if they differed from hers. I have recommended Ms. McKeon to several friends as I feel her integrity and legal representation is outstanding.

Shelly D. McKeon

I had one of those horrible divorces you read about.....and things settled down until I moved up to MD to be closer to my kids from VA....then the ex( a family attorney herself) decieded to litigate settled issues again.......Shelly did a marvelous job and although we had to go through a two day the end of it all she got the case dismissed because the ex- did not meet the burden of proof to warrant a modification......
