Testimonials

From Michelle B:

"Sheer genius is the only way to describe her ability to expeditiously resolve the most contentious and disputatious family law matters to the satisfaction of all the parties in the best interests of the family and client. Her results and representation are consistently excellent. She is highly esteemed by all counsel, even opponents, and the parties. We continue to refer and receive overwhelmingly positive and appreciative gratitude from the clients we refer to Ms. Blessing. We also serve as co-counsel in a variety of ancillary matters with only excellent results. Ms. Blessing's ability to grasp the most difficult of issues, familiarize and educate herself and the parties and resolve whether by trial, but more frequently by agreement due to her being a truly collaborative lawyer elevates her to a level of professional excellence unsurpassed by any in her field. She is also a skilled, trained and certified mediator. I can't praise her skills enough. She is truly a pleasure also to work with as well."


"I hired Maribeth as my attorney for custody and support soon after leaving a very abusive relationship. From the beginning, Maribeth seemed to have an intuitive understanding of the dynamics of our relationship and she put her heart and soul into helping me. Our legal battles lasted almost three years, involving multiple conferences and hearing dates. The entire time, my ex did everything in his power to both stall the process and intimidate me. He threw out a multitude of baseless allegations and outlandish legal maneuvers. Maribeth was with me every step of the way. She was fully knowledgeable of all the issues involved at each event, and she was always ready to protect me from yet another attempt on the part of my ex to harrass and bully me through the legal system. Eventually, a final custody decision was reached in my favor and my ex attempted to appeal the decision. Though this was not her field of expertise, Maribeth did an enormous amount of personal research in order to continue to represent me to the best of her abilities, and eventually the appeal was dismissed. Throughout it all, Maribeth accepted the payments I was able to make and never told me that she would not represent me if I did not pay in full. She realized I was making every good faith effort to pay her and she worked with me as a result. She also never did something she knew I was perfectly capable of doing myself or engaged in any other attempts to hike up my legal costs. I cannot begin to recommend Maribeth enough. She is passionate about her work, takes great pride in protecting the rights of her clients, is honest, and has an enormous amount of common sense to go with her legal knowledge. Maribeth, in many ways, saved my life and protected my children. I cannot thank her enough."


From Lynda H:
"I can't say enough about Maribeth Blessing. She has not only represented me as my attorney but has also through the time spent on my case, become my friend. My divorce was one of the most complicated cases that Maribeth and her office had ever encountered. My first meeting with her took over 5 hours. Who spends that kind of time with a client, in today's world? Due to the complications of the case, it was not uncommon for another attorney in her firm and staff to sit in on meetings. I spent weeks in her office having been given an office to work in and an intern so that I could create a time line of events and exhibits for the court. By doing my own data collection for the case I was able to save on some of the legal fees that were being accrued. She championed my case through unbelievable obstacles. First, my previous counsel had filed the wrong document and didn't correct it, which seriously impacted the case. Then opposing counsel slandered my character every chance they could. During the process, both my husband and her husband passed away within weeks of each other. The death of my husband during the divorce process created a whole new set of issues that had to be worked through. Even in her own grief she always answered e-mails and kept the case moving forward. I was always kept in the loop of information, had my questions answered and knew what was to be expected. Her entire office was always professional, very helpful and became a source of emotional support when everything seemed so overwhelming....Thank you! Maribeth and staff, for helping me through one of the most difficult times in my life."

From Eric O.:
"I wanted to express sincere gratitude for my partnership with Maribeth and the option of collaborative divorce. My ex and I made every effort to keep our marriage together, however, in the end we decided that it would be best if we parted ways in our day to day lives. When making the decision to split up, we found the option for collaborative divorce. I retained Maribeth as my representation through the collaborative divorce process. First, she has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and most importantly empathy. It's an emotional time and she was very good with keeping me informed and made me feel comfortable with the process. Her team kept communication lines open and shared next steps often and I always knew where we were in the process. During our actual session with my ex and her lawyer, both sides did a great job communicating and moving us through the negotiations and settlements. I could not be more pleased with the Collaborative Divorce process and I want to personally recommend Maribeth and her team to support any person choosing this route for divorce. While there are horror stories and ugly divorces, I feel as if this process kept things very civil and in the end, this was the best for me, my ex, and most importantly our kids."

"I hired Maribeth Blessing for my child custody case and am very pleased with the results. She is highly knowledge and knows what's in the best interest of the child. She understands what my concerns were as a parent and she was very understanding and caring. She will always be and remain a big part of me and my daughter's life. I thank her whole heartedly for all that she has done for me and my daughter. I recommend her for all the good work she does in helping people going through turbulent times."


From GodisGood1:
Maribeth Blessing lives up to her name as she was truly a blessing to me in taking over my divorce case which had been grossly mishandled by a previous attorney. She had less than a month to become familiar with my case and prepare for the equitable distribution segment of the proceedings. With her legal expertise and attention to details she put together my financial dossier that allowed the discontinuance of Alimony that I had been ordered to pay my spouse. Her top-notch negotiation skills afforded me a settlement that ruled in my favor as well as the final divorce decree which had been dragging on for 1.5 years under my previous attorney. One of her many attributes is that she is truly an "Advocate" for her clients. I felt as her client that I was heard, respected and valued. When it comes to getting the job done she has a "No-Nonsense" attitude. She doesn't drag her feet or skirt around issues but looks for the most expeditious way to come to closure. She and her staff are very pleasant and professional. The atmosphere in her office is warm and inviting helping to relieve the stress already associated with whatever issue you are facing. I may not know a lot of attorneys but she is definitely "Creme de la Creme"! She has my highest recommendation.

Having gone through an extremely tumultuous divorce and custody battle, Ms. Blessing was my only saving grace. With her expertise of family law, her compassion, and her outstanding reputation, she truly saved me from financial ruin.

My family and I will eternally be grateful for the gifts that she has given us. You will never regret hiring her as your attorney, as she will fight for you as though you are part of her family.

From LTS311:
Maribeth Blessing is highly intelligent, very professional and extremely well-organized. She has limitless patience and a wonderful "bedside" manner. She is able to navigate sensitive issues in a tactful and gracious manner. She listens to what you want and then explains potential consequences in terms that anyone can understand. Definitely not a one-size-fits-all approach. Their office is well-run and efficient. Maribeth is easily accessible and returns your calls promptly. Her concern for her clients is evident in every interaction. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

I would recommend her to anyone that is going through a divorce, She is very good at what she dose.

From drogers20: Disclaimer
After a very contentious divorce almost two decades ago and the alienation of my three children two of which should have been emancipated in 2008 and 2009, I attained justice with the knowledgeable representation of MaryBeth Blessing, Esquire. For years I had paid my ordered child support yet when I requested as legally decreed in my divorce that my oldest daughters in 2008 and 2009 be emancipated, the court ignored UIFSA. This unfair treatment cost me much additional money, time off of work and a tremendous amount of stress. In essence, I had been overpaying child support for three years and health insurance (their mother had health insurance for them and never used mine, yet I had to continue to pay for it). MaryBeth Blessing facilitated bringing this matter to a just resolution. Thank goodness my wife and I found her. I only wish we would have found her sooner. She knew the law, she was methodical and determined in her approach on my behalf. She was honest, assertive with a very even toned and calming demeanor. Although it was a bittersweet victory, the terms of my divorce decree were finally and justly enforced. Ms. Blessing was the utmost professional and the case for the most part went exactly as she thought it would. I strongly recommend that anyone in need of any attorney that will get it right will call her without hesitation, Do not try to deal with these issues alone, it does not work that way in today's system. You need an advocate and her name is MaryBeth Blessing!

From LisaA82JML:
I have used the services of Maribeth Blessing on several occasions and currently she is representing me in my divorce proceedings. I am confident Maribeth and her team has my best interest at heart. She is professional, focused and very adamant about the direction that my current case must go; which alleviates much of the concern I have about the inner workings of the legal system. Her years of experience in the field of law is evident and is reflected in the manner in which my case is being presented. I have constant contact with her, as she is very accessible; and her and her office staff keep me posted on everything I need to know, and do, in regards to my divorce proceedings. There are no surprises. She is up front and very precise on what must be done and very clear about the fees for her service. I would highly recommend Maribeth Blessing to any person who has the need for legal advice, suggestions and/or representation. If you are looking for a dedicated attorney with the knowledge of not only Family Law, but other areas as well, than she is the right lawyer for your consultation. Consultations are very important but they do not tell you everything about a lawyer; or their particular style. What most people seem to miss is the specifics to look for at consultation. Many are focused on price; but what I believe is most important is to look closely and recognize any sense of false promises. I knew after my initial consultation Maribeth was the right lawyer for me. She made me feel at ease about the process and has followed up on her promise to make sure there is nothing left to chance. I have had a good experience through a very difficult time and can say she absolutely follows up on each and every item that is important to a case. I am certain that my situation was better served having Maribeth Blessing represent me and my children. It wont be long before everything is settled and I can move on in my life, thanks to her,
