My first contact with MDMB Law was in late 2016 as I entered into the beginnings of my divorce, one of the worst periods in my life. Having worked with a couple different law firms in the National Capital Region, MDMB Law is - by far - the most communicative and fair firm with which I've dealt. When I first approached Jennifer Bradley, I made clear my desire to keep legal expenditures low and protect my children from needless harm during the divorce process, and she promised to do her best. Since then, she has held fast to this promise, even doing so while having to take maternity leave. Even though I had already moved to another firm to continue my case in her absence, she checked in with me, constantly, because she took a personal interest in my case and my family. As a collaborative law professional, she really does look to solve problems outside of the "Wild West" environment of the courtroom, and her reputation proceeds her. Before officially retaining her services, I had occasion to speak with a former VA Supreme Court Justice who, when I mentioned her name, gushed that she was a "wonderful attorney." My stepfather, a superior court judge in another state, would comment on my interactions with her by saying that he respected her approach. He is not a fan of the "file first, ask questions later" type of lawyer, and given his personality, that's not an easy compliment to earn. Jennifer is a true professional. If you asked her, she'd probably describe her dealings with me as 'business as usual,' but it's hard not to feel as if she's taken a vested interest in me and my family. My life is easier knowing she has my back.
