Attorney Commander and her entire staff were outstanding. I went 10 years without any cooperation from my ex-spouse regarding her divorce decree responsibilities. Attorney Commander resolved my issue in less than 2 months. She and her legal staff are responsive and on point… As a retired military officer, it was very important to me to have someone represent my interests who understands my perspective and pays attention to detail. Five Stars are not enough to express the work they did for me. These folks are top-notch. As a military man, I would never go into a battle without the best. If you have to go into a legal fight, you have the best with Commander Law – period.

I have experience with Mary through the legal profession in the court system, and I have known of her for nearly two years. And although I have always held her in high regard, my opinions about her skyrocketed when I had occasion to engage her as counsel for my own legal matter. I cannot say enough about her responsiveness, her sensitivity, her attention to detail, her incisiveness, her preparedness and her legal acumen. But even beyond these essential qualities, there is such a wonderful sense of goodness about Mary. She is generous with her time, she is generous with her energy and her effort. She is KIND. She has a wonderful heart (AND a terrific sense of humor!) She and all her staff reflect all of these things as well. If I were an attorney, I would model my practice upon what Mary and her group represent. Wonderful, wonderful. So thankful!

I went through first a drawn out, emotional divorce and subsequently a child custody battle a few years ago. Ms. Commander not only skillfully navigated me through the divorce process, but allowed me to negotiate for custody of both my daughters. Her paralegal Abby was great at making me feel comfortable with her very personal touch, making a difficult situation seem as though I had a genuine connection and support. Ms. Commander didn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear, but gave me situations/scenarios to make my own informed decisions. She was always straightforward and honest with me. I had a great experience with Mary Commander and all her staff.

Hands down, Mary Commander knows the Virginia family law, and practices civility and integrity from start to finish. Mary is tougher than nails and handles any high-conflict opposing counsel with ease. Mary is reasonable and the entire legal team will have you and your children’s best interest as a priority. Regardless, if you have mediation or need to go to court or trial, Mary is a strong litigator and will have your back. From the beginning, Emily (Mary’s receptionist) was prompt, patient with my numerous emails, and very responsive. Most of all, when things seemed bleak and overwhelming, Emily was considerate, patient, and kind with every one of my visits to their office. I eventually retained Mary and had no regrets. I had approximately 60+ pages worth of discovery and questions to respond to. As chaotic as it might seem, Abby (Mary’s paralegal) made sure the process was seamless. Abby’s prompt communication and “hand-holding” made the prep for the court hearing much easier. In fact, Abby had even more experience and knowledge than my ex’s own attorney! The entire team kept me in the loop and made sure all my questions and concerns were promptly addressed even with Mary’s schedule. Mary and Abby knew the best cases to cite for my particular situation to get the motion filed against me dismissed. It’s true you never know what a judge might say or decide, but the team at Commander Law will do everything they can to ensure your things go in your favor. There is nothing more reassuring and uplifting than seeing Mary in action in a courtroom. It‘s a great feeling when Mary and her team are fully prepared and state your case eloquently while opposing counsel continue to stumble in their responses to the points Mary brings up.

Mary and her legal team are absolutely amazing. Mary is professional, honest and trustworthy (she’s pretty funny too). Now to mention she got us exactly what we wanted. We have used her 3 times and will continue to for as long as we need. You never have to worry about getting an answer to your emails or phone calls. She will tell you exactly how things will go and won’t beat around bush if you have a question or concern. We wish we would have used her from the beginning of his whole process, but so thankful we have her in our corner now.

She and her legal staff are responsive and on point… As a retired military officer, it was very important to me to have someone represent my interests who understands my perspective and pays attention to detail. Attorney Commander is not only a superior advocate, she and her staff provided me with top advice when decisions had to be made… Finally, I would like to add that I live in another part of the U.S., but needed local representation in the Tidewater area. Attorney Commander and her staff were always accessible and responsive to my questions throughout the entire process, even though I literally live in another time zone. Five Stars are not enough to express the work they did for me. These folks are top-notch. As a military man, I would never go into a battle without the best.

(Not just because I won……..)

Mary handled my divorce with great skill and finesse. I would hire her again in a minute. She definitely makes the process and easy and pain free as possible

Upfront, honest, trustworthy, caring and totally worth every cent! Not to mention her wonderful and devoted staff.

– April Meade

Amazing divorce attorney!

Mary is the perfect divorce attorney! She’s a bulldog when she needs to be, but her emphasis is always FASTER negotiation through peaceful tactics and doing what’s best for the children. She’s very good at handling complicated financial and other details, and very responsive. Mary is also cost-conscious, encouraging me to use a free mediator when I had the option but always available for back-up advice. My ex-husband’s attorney cost him three times what Mary charged! Most important, I left with a settlement that gave me financial security and peace of mind – and I owe that to Mary.

Excellent Lawyer In Divorce Case

What I liked about Mary Commander was that she knew exactly what I was talking about almost before I said it. She has that much experience with divorce situations and people. She knew what to expect from court and was able to prepare me for it. More than that, I knew that she cared what happened to me and I knew that she would be honest with me, even if I did not want to hear some of it. You need that when you are going through a divorce.
