Customer Reviews

Maurice was the only attorney I interviewed out of ten who would give answers that were reassuring, like what the law states and how that applies to me, so many just say “i cant promise you anything!!!” but not maurice, My ex wanted everything, kids, house, to never work again, etc… Maurice told me what was my fair part to expect out of the divorce according to the law and then he got me everything he said was rightfully mine. He skillfully revealed in court what an abusive, manipulative, and controlling person my ex spouse was, he made her lose her cool repeatedly on the stand with just the simplest of questions and reveal who she really was. He didn’t waste time or money, he cut to what he knew the judge wanted to hear about and avoided wasting time with things that were irrelevant.

He was professional, knowledgeable, successful always in gaining what we asked for and he repeatedly told me when to not waste my time fighting and wasting money on issues that were irrelevant or not going to produce any gain.

Maurice was exceptionally skilled at getting my ex wife to contradict herself and walk into every trap possible when she was on the stand, i can’t say enough, that he is good in trial… that is where he really shines, if you need to reveal to the judge who your soon to be ex really is then he can help you.

Mr Ellis did not seem to care about my needs in my divorce. It was a military divorce and a lot was involved and he did not seem to be knowledgeable at all regarding this. My husband did so many things wrong especially being military that everyone told me he shouldnt have been able to get away with and yep he did and came out way better then me! The few dollars i did get went straight to Mr Ellis. I would have been better off not going for anything and atleast wouldnt have had an attorney bill on top of everything else! I also felt that he may be partial to defending a man and not a woman. So i would not suggest any women to depend on Mr Ellis looking out for them.

Mo told me how my divorce was going to go, step by step. He told me what i was going to get and what i wasn’t going to get.

In reality he Kicked my exwife’s attorneys ass so bad she fired her Attorney and got another,

He then proceded to kick the second attorneys ass.

I put my life in his hands and he saved my bacon…. i don’t know how i will repay him….

Seemed to be putting minimal effort into our case. Didn’t get correct information into court filings. Kept saying he was trying to save us money by minimizing time, but it felt like an excuse.
