Testimonials

“Anne was referred to me by a friend. She initially represented me during my divorce and then a year later during a custody dispute. Not only did she provide the professional services I required, but she did so in a way that was more like one friend supporting another. She was extremely prepared and always in control of the situation. Most importantly for me though, she was a calming force during an extremely emotional time. I feel extremely lucky and even grateful to have had her by my side.”

“Anne took me in and helped me during one of the toughest periods in my life, getting custody of my daughter. She never gave up and did everything in her power to bring about a positive outcome! Anne was very professional but also acted as a friend and confidant. If it hadn’t been for her I wouldn’t be sitting here with my daughter. I will always be grateful to her!”

“Andrea represented me in my divorce case. She provided excellent guidance and advice to me, taking the time to explain issues and helping me to be reasonable in my expectations. In addition, she is compassionate, and she remained cool and calm when I could not be!”

“I am very thankful to Anne and Andrea for everything they did in my case. When I came to them about my divorce, I was very lost and insecure. My friend referred me to the Law Office of Anne Kelly Laynor. From my first consultation, I felt welcome. I presented my case and they gave me the options for pursuing my divorce and full custody of my son. Anne and Andrea explained all the terms, benefits, and more about my case. It was a long process of more than 12 months but the results were successful. Andrea was always with me. In all my trials and confrontations, she was next to me. I will recommend the services of the Law Office of Anne Kelly Laynor because I can give a true testimony of their services, caring and honesty.”

“When I decided to get divorced, it was one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make. As a single father, I had tremendous fears about seeing my daughter, let alone having joint custody of her. Therefore, I needed a lawyer that would understand and appreciate this concern. Knowing these concerns, my therapist highly recommended Anne Kelly Laynor to me. After going through this ordeal with Anne, I was able to appreciate why my therapist recommended her so highly. One thing I can say for sure, Anne was the ideal lawyer for me. Anne listened to me and understood that my number one priority was my daughter and she always kept that a priority during the process. Anne’s competence as a lawyer is impressive. She knew exactly what to do and when to do it. She was excellent at mitigating tough situations during mediation, and she had the confidence and tenacity to keep things moving when the process would stall.

Anne did not just serve as a lawyer for me; she served as a friend/sounding board to let me share my experiences and to give her perspective as a parent, which was critical for me to start healing. She made a terrible experience as easy as anyone could possibly make it. In addition, her support staff was also instrumental in making this process go smoothly, even if it was to just vent and to maintain my resolve. I will always hold Anne in the highest regard for what she did for my daughter and me, and for that I am forever thankful. I only have positive things to say about her and her group. I will always recommend her to anyone who unfortunately finds themselves in a similar situation.”

“I contacted the Law Office of Anne Kelly Laynor seeking a divorce attorney. I have used several local lawyers over the years for various services, with less than satisfying results. Anne and Andrea were a breath of fresh air and they showed genuine care and concern about me and my case. Along with divorce services, Anne was also able to secure protective and consent orders, while referring me to good counsel for prosecuting criminal charges. If you want an attorney that actually cares about your best interests, and will fight to win/resolve your case, choose Anne and Andrea. I would also like to add that their rates were reasonable and commensurate to the work performed and the results they achieved.”

I was initially represented by another lawyer for my child custody case, but was very nervous because papers were not being turned in on time and I was not confident that I was receiving optimal representation. When speaking with a friend, she suggested that I meet with Anne Kelly Laynor. After my first meeting with Anne, I knew that my child and I needed her expertise and superior legal knowledge. Anne never made any false promises, but prepared me for real outcomes.  She always keeps the child’s best interest as her priority. Anne is very professional and her long time legal expertise is exemplary. She spent time preparing me for court, which was very helpful. The whole firm was very professional and always returned phone calls and emails in a very timely manner. My nerves were at rest knowing that I had great representation.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Anne Kelly Laynor and her law firm to anyone seeking superior representation for their family.

“I contacted Anne, based on a recommendation from a friend. Anne offered human advice to a person that was doing his best to keep his head above water in a difficult time. Anne was a voice of reason in a system that allows people to get away with breaking the law. There is the “LAW” and there is reality. Anne helped me see reality. I chose to accept that. Anne is personal, cares, keeps the end in mind.”

–William

“I came to Anne back in 2007 and have been referring her to people ever since. I came to Anne at one of the scariest times in my life. Anne took the scariest situation I had ever faced in my life, turned it into the most beneficial outcome for my daughter and me. I have referred family and friends to Anne to handle child custody and divorce. I don’t know if they have reached out to her or not, because that’s private, but I never stop handing out her information. To this date, I know that I can call her, talk to her for just 5 minutes and she immediately alleviates any concerns I may have….

Anne is an angel, a life saver and I am so grateful to have her in my corner.”

“I am a single mom of an awesome boy. A very good friend and coworker of mine, had Anne represent her, in parts of a custody battle with her ex-husband. My friend had nothing but good words and positive reinforcement about her. When I called to do a consult, Anne listened to everything I had to say. Even on more than one occasion. I was hesitant at first. Being a single mom, I didn’t have the finances to go through this. It did take about a year for me to save up and go forth with Andrea. I don’t regret one bit of my decision. Things happen for a reason and I was meant to have Andrea by my side when I got what I had asked for. I had needed her services to modify child support and got what I needed from that as well.

I can’t speak highly enough of Andrea and Anne. Wait. Yes I can. Even upon first call to Anne, I felt comfortable, calm and confident. She made me feel so at ease with what I was asking of her and guided me to what I may need. These ladies are sincere, confident and will guide you with what you are looking for. But it is up to you to talk with them about it. I did. It’s your turn to talk! ”

“Anne represented me during my divorce and custody trial. Anne was professional, reliable, organized, and punctual. Anne represented me not only as my lawyer but she took my case really with heart. She is a great counselor. Thank you to Anne and Andrea for their outstanding services. Thank you for the peace of mind. I have you and your staff very close to my heart. If someone is in the Maryland area and looking for a great lawyer please don’t look any further. Consult with Anne Kelly Laynor.”
