A Huge Relief

“At a very unfortunate time in my life, It was suggested to me by another highly regarded attorney that i speak with Ms Monagan regarding my pending divorce. Her knowledge in these matter’s, and ability to quickly bring closure, and her continued help in traversing family matters has been an incredible relief. She has been an invaluable resource during what could have been a much harder time in my life. I would highly suggest her to anyone seeking legal advice in her areas of practice.”

“I struggled so much throughout my family court custody battle, Kevin is the first attorney I have had in 5 years to not only give me honest advice but listen and care. It felt as though he took the struggles personally and fought for my rights. I would recommend Mr. O’Brien to anyone who needs representation in a family matter.”
