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"

Dear Shelly, thank you for working so hard today on the deposition.
Because all your firm has done for me, I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Your firm saved me from the depths of the darkest, gloomiest, hopelessness and certain defeat and gently and lovingly took me under your wings and brought to a better place...a place that would have been out of my reach forever without you. You both fought for me as if we shared the same blood and helped lift my spirits higher. You helped me find an inner strength, a strength that I forgot was there and lost faith in long ago. You gave me a reason to hope and a reason to believe that one day I will be happy again. I will always be thankful to you and will not let your complete dedication to my case ever go to waste. Even now that this case is for the most part behind you, you are still taking care of me and making sure that I transition responsibly and completely.
I really appreciate everyone's help and efforts for bringing this case to a successful conclusion.
