"Mary was responsive, helpful, and thorough throughout the process, and represented me very well in court. She explained every step clearly and helped me find the peace of mind I was looking for. The proceedings would have been difficult and felt overwhelming without Mary by my side, and I am very grateful for her help on my case. I was impressed by her preparation and expertise, and would highly recommend anyone seeking legal assistance to get in touch with her."

"Mary was absolutely amazing in my divorce case. My situation was complex if anything, Mary was excellent with the challenges and always had a positive attitude. Divorce is such a painful time, though when you have an advocate like Mary it makes it so much easier."

"If you want a lawyer to be there and fight for you, look no further. Mary Conte is that lawyer. But she also expects and will push when she sees it's needed. Here's my quote for here: "The devil whispered in my ear, 'You're not strong enough to withstand the storm. ' Today I whispered in the devil's ear, 'I am the storm. I have been going through custody battles since 2012, Not having a lot of liquidity, I have spent more of those times being my own lawyer. This past January I'd had enough and stated looking. I know most of the lawyers on the Island and a couple off Island. I was extremely apprehensive and hesitant even trying to find one. But took the chance and left a couple of messages. Mary got ahold of me first. I was ( and still am) blown away by her dedication. Due to the circumstances of the case, that went way beyond what I had initially hired her for. After thinking the case was "closed", I found out the fight was not over yet. Had I not hired Mary, I have no doubt I would have lost. Mary spent many hours on the phone with me, emailing back and forth, making sure all the details were attended to. I know there was at least 1 weekend day that she was working on my case. Mary Conte is a Warrior. There were so many things that I could have been stressing about, but I put the case in trusted hands and I could not have prayed, asked or conjured up the support I got from her. One thing I absolutely appreciated was the fact that she didn't entertain Fools. She saw through exactly what was happening and dug her feet in to make sure all aspects were covered. In short, Mary is not one to be reckoned with. She's not afraid to go after what is right and help navigate all the intricacies of legal jargon. I know that the legal system is a dog eat dog world and a cut throat attitude between lawyers and women are thought of as "less." Well let me tell you, I've seen lawyers who think "their all that" and its all smoke and mirrors. Mary is set apart in her own category. Not every hero wears a cape, and Mary was the very definition of Hero. I credit her for not only helping me get through the mess but also giving me the confidence I needed to stand through the storm. And did it all just as the Pandemic was hitting it's stride. Mary you will stay in my phone contacts forever. I found someone who actually cares and will back whatever I need. ' Ya'll want results, HIRE MARY!!!!! Wish there was an option to give more stars but I hope this review will help."
