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"
I want to recommend my new attorneys because they have given me new hope, protection, respect and the advice I never got from my former attorney. Unfortunately, I didn’t find them until too late in the process but I decided to change right after merit hearing because I was so upset with the results. Maybe I didn’t benefit from their assistance before going through the divorce process but someone else will if they decide to use their services – I guarantee they will be represented properly. The Firm is The McKeon Law Firm – Shelly McKeon – Gaithersburg, MD – 301-417-0222. I sincerely hope this helps someone.
Thank you so much for calling me yesterday, I appreciate your support and guidance. Thank you again for being there for me.
I'm glad I have someone like you in my corner looking out for me.
It was a pleasure having your firm represent me and I was very pleased with the service and attention I was given.
I really do appreciate everything that you have done for me over the past couple of years. For me, it has provided a level of closure...so I feel like I am truly able to move on and start over and I am really excited for the future. Thank you for everything.
Shelly, Wow I am impressed!!! Thanks so much. I am quite sure the response from [opposing party] will be significant. I will keep you apprised. I actually feel relieved today is over and feel good having stood up to him and his attorney (thanks to you, of course!).
