After being served with a divorce filing and an Order to Show Cause, my friend at work referred me over to Scott MacCabe. From the initial consultation, I felt 100% comfortable and at ease because of Scott's professional, honest, and enthusiastic representation. It was like I was more than just a client as we worked together on my case, covering multiple pieces of real property, investment accounts, and retirement benefits that accumulated over a 25 year relationship on top of spousal support requests and attorney fee requests. Whenever I had a question in the case, I could talk with Scott or meet with him and get his sincere, knowledgeable answer. We gave our best effort to settle the case at mediation but Scott and I both felt we would do better at trial, so we went to trial for just over a week and it turned out perfectly. Scott's understanding of the facts of my case and of the law was clearly shown. The end result was right where Scott predicted and far better than anything ever offered by the other side. I continue to be thankful for his hard work, as my case went amazingly well.

Scott represented me from the start of my divorce through the Judgment signing. We settled property division, spousal support, and attorney's fees through meetings with the lawyers and then also worked out a favorable custody plan with the help of minor's counsel. I felt that the settlement process gave me greater control over the outcome than a trial would have, and saved on the emotional and financial costs as well. After the Judgment, my ex-husband lost his job with a national real estate firm, his severance had run out and he still could not find work despite a year's worth of calls and interviews. He wanted to lower support to zero, so I went back to Scott again for help. During the Order to Show Cause Scott asked just the right questions of my ex-husband at just the right time and he won my case. He couldn't have done a better job. The judge granted my request to keep support as provided in the Judgment. It was a stressful time going to court with a lot at risk, but Scott was always available to discuss any concern and he remained focused on getting the best result for me and my children. I am so thankful for how he helped me first settle my case, and how he fought for me at the post-judgment hearing.

Divorce is never an easy decision. Having Scott MacCabe handle the process for me, greatly helped relieve some of the stresses involved. After years of drama in addition to a long term illness in my family - I just wanted a peaceful, fair and equitable end to my marriage. Scott provided an initial free consultation where he patiently answered all of my questions and explained the options open to me. In my situation, I found his quiet steady demeanor, and his ability to defuse - rather than escalate such an emotionally tender situation during negotiations to be a great asset. I found the costs involved to be manageable for my limited budget. And I really appreciated that Scott was very available by phone or email to answer my questions or concerns. The divorce was handled through his offices here in town, and I was spared any travel to appear in court.
