5.0 out of 5 stars

Attorney Surette was an invaluable asset to me through my family court matters. She is brilliant, tenacious, fair, hard-working and importantly she has the ability to see the big picture. Her perspective and counsel has made me a better parent. As long as you have the ability to follow her sound advice, someone going through a family court matter could do no better than Attorney Mary Surette.
