Divorce is never easy. There's an emotional component that underlines every action during the process and those heightened emotions can lead to poor decisions. Divorce becomes much more difficult when you cannot successfully co-parent with your ex, when there are abuse allegations, and when civil claims are tossed in as well. Mine had all of those and more. Some people are able to be divorced and move on with civility. That was not my experience. When I first when to see the Irwin's, I was emotionally fragile. I had been targeted for destruction and devastation and although I'm a person with high integrity that believes in justice, I had to continually defend myself and my conduct to various agencies. It was like a sojourn in Bizarro world. After that first meeting with Mark and Kelly, I walked out with the ability to breathe. Like take a deep breath in and exhale. From that moment forward, I began to emotionally distance myself from the attacks coming my way because I knew I had this team in my corner. By the end of my very long and drawn-out divorce, I no longer felt abject fear walking into the courtroom. Instead, it was like a painful splinter; it had to be pulled out, but you knew on the other side of that process, you were going to be just fine. The whole office is professional and responsive. Mark and Kelly put together a fantastic team. Serena and Megan... are definitely assets to the team. I would have never chosen this difficult road but at the same time, I'm so very grateful they were with me during the journey.
Kelly handled my divorce case and I was very pleased with her! She is very knowledgeable, professional and trustworthy! Even though I don't wish anyone else to have a divorce but if you need that service I highly recommend Kelly!
"Kelly, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the time and effort you spent helping me. You are wonderful! Sincerely, H.E."
"I hired Kelly to represent me in family court while obtaining a restraining order for my past relationship, which involved Domestic Violence. Kelly was very thorough and knowledgeable along every step of the way, and fully invested herself and her time in my case. She was very straight-forward with myself and my family, and most importantly for me, honest. I was extremely apprehensive about going to court in such a sensitive situation, but Kelly made me feel more at ease in the courtroom with the competency in which she represented my case. If need be, I would not hesitate to hire Kelly to represent me again in the future."
“I couldn’t be happier with the way Mark handled my divorce. He kept me informed the entire way, and I always felt Mark was working in my best interests. Mark was very understanding during the difficult times of the case and was empathetic to my situation. In the end, Mark achieved everything he (we) set out to accomplish, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He is truly a person of good moral character and a professional who always worked hard for his client. Thanks Mark.”
“Thank you so much for all you guys have done…you guys are great. I’ve been trying to clear this mess up for almost 20 years… and you guys did it in a matter of months–you guys are the best!!”
“Thank you for helping me to clarify my thinking and for giving me the tools and backbone to do what was necessary to rebuild my life. I am not the same person I was just a year ago. Also, thank you for making my legal nightmare an afterthought and breaking it down into manageable steps.”
“Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience it was for me having your assistance… I don’t see how it could have gone any better, or relieved me of so many details I do not enjoy, and resulted in a such a good deal for us. Most important to me is the way you handled this matter demonstrates that you are the right attorney for me in many situations I am likely to encounter. You are right on target with the decisions you leave to me, and those you take by yourself in my behalf, and you are clearly an enterprising person with a good ability to press your case without seeming aggressive… Thank you very much for your help.”
“… Thank you again for all of your assistance in dealing with our issue. As you notice, this has been most stressful for me and your approach makes the process a bit less painful.”

“Thank you for your help in handling my divorce. You guys were very responsive, helpful, trustworthy, honest, and managed my expectations well. I recently gave your card to a friend who may need help with her divorce. I told her you guys were awesome and super honest!”
