Maureen is an excellent lawyer. She was recommended to me by a trusted friend who was raving about her. So I came in with high expectations. Maureen is clear, to the point, fast (never wasted my or her time or tried to stretch an issue), extremely bright, optimistic and funny. She is always looking for a sensible solution (not a fight for fight sake), and at the same time you know she will go to bat for you if needed. I enjoyed every conversation we had and can highly recommend her.
Smart, Reliable, Strategic, Responsive, Experienced Professional
Maureen is an outstanding attorney and made me feel at all times that she was truly invested in me, my children and my case. She is cool and calm under pressure, intuitive, strategic and provides excellent and quality service. Her years of experience helped her to recognize my husband‘s personality issues (even before I did) and allowed us to proceed strategically. I found her to be responsive, always getting back to me quickly, and knowledgeable while handling my complex international divorce case. Most importantly she is a highly effective litigator who got me results that were better than expected. You won’t know how truly excellent she is until after the ink has dried on your settlement agreement. I recommend her highly and without reservation.
Attorney McBrien provided expert counsel and leadership as an advocate for my family in a prolonged and highly contentious divorce.
Cool and calm under fire, McBrien’s firm resolve and unwavering demeanor, accented with a genuinely kind and sincere disposition, make her a highly effective litigator. These traits are only surpassed by a preternatural talent for direct and cross examination of witnesses and deponents alike. I strongly recommend Attorney McBrien for consideration; you will not be disappointed.
My Best Attorney in the Last 14 Years
Maureen was recommended to me following passage of the Alimony Reform Act of 2011 as my ex husband had sued to terminate my alimony based upon his interpretation of the new law. Maureen handled my case, which we lost due to my trial judge’s personal interpretation of the new law. She then took on the the daunting task of my appeal, where we prevailed after the SJC had ruled on the seminal three cases of Chin, Rodman, and Doktor. Prior to retaining Maureen, beginning in 2003, I had worked with two other older, more experienced divorce lawyers to handle my original divorce, and a subsequent Modification, also initiated by my ex husband. Maureen has been the best by far! She is professional but friendly, easy to reach, responsive, and personally invested in the outcome of each case that she takes on. Maureen is well-liked and respected by her peers and no challenge is too great for her. She always made me feel as though we were working together on the same team. Divorce is sad and ugly Courts are overcrowded. The “system” is terribly imperfect. I don’t recommend divorce to anyone, but if divorce is the only option, I heartily recommend hiring Maureen to handle the case. She is a strong advocate for her clients and never gives up. Maureen and I have remained in touch, we chat about a variety of current legal issues, and I’m very glad that I met her.
I was extremely fortunate to have Wendy Hickey represent me during my entire divorce process.
The professionalism, empathy, and knowledge that she brought to the table during this troublesome time in my life was a cornerstone in the favorable outcome that the court ordered. I can attest that my children and myself are in a much better spot now because of her tireless and meticulous efforts! If you are looking for a lawyer that is genuinely empathetic, knowledgeable, and has you and your family’s best interest at heart then I would strongly urge you to call Wendy Hickey.
Divorce is never pleasant, but Wendy Hickey made this tough process as stress free as possible.
I have heard stories from other friends about having to chase attorneys and unanswered phone calls – that was never my experience with Wendy Hickey or any of the team at her firm. I always felt like I was a priority and even when I was overly emotional they were always empathetic and never dismissive of my emotions. They cover all the bases too – things you wouldn’t necessarily think of like tax and other financial ramifications, etc. I would (and have) highly recommend them to anyone who was in need of divorce counsel.
This past year, Wendy Hickey guided me through a divorce with the utmost professionalism and kindness.
Having a young son and not being familiar with the court system or even the questions to ask when confronted with needing a divorce, Wendy took the extra time to walk me through all the details, guide me on questions I did not even know to ask, and above all was reliable, professional, and very adept at handling my ex and his crazy behaviors during a time when I needed it most. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a educated, skilled, caring, and professional divorce lawyer.
Wendy Hickey was a very professional, knowledgeable and caring attorney
My husband and I had to deal with a difficult removal situation for our children (cross country move). Wendy was prepared to address every aspect including mediation and the potential hearing. Her guidance was unmatched in making sure that we were making the best decisions for the kids. She was efficient, and she or a member of her team were always available for guidance. Her strategy accomplished our desired outcome without spending excess time or money.
I always felt like I was a priority.
