See what Madana's clients are saying about her:
"I honestly don't even know where to start. I can't say enough good things about Madana! I struggled for years in a difficult marriage with someone who emotionally and verbally abused me and it took all my courage to start meeting with attorneys. I met with two other attorneys before I met with Madana and the experience I had with Madana was so unlike the other experiences. I look back at those experiences and really feel bad for people that hire anyone else. First of all, the other attorneys were pushy and not understanding of my situation. The first one tried to scare me into hiring him right away and kept pushing me to hurry up and hire him. He called me so many times after we met and kept insisting that I needed to hurry up and make a decision. I was so turned off by how obvious it was that he was just trying to make money off me! The second one just didn't care to hear my story and understand that I was an actual person going through the most difficult decision of my life. When I met with Madana, she was not pushy AT ALL! I really felt like she was just there to give me advice and help me make a decision on my own terms. She listened to what I had been through and was really compassionate and understanding. I just felt so comfortable to open up to her and felt like I was in the right place. I hired her right away. Even though my ex made the divorce really difficult (he talked down to me in front of the kids, told people lies about me, tried to get me kicked out of the house, stole money from our bank account, etc) Madana was always really helpful in explaining things and trying to do everything she could to make sure she took care of me (the money that my ex took was given back to me and I ended up getting custody of the kids. Just small example of what she did for me). The divorce took almost a year to resolve but I always felt like Madana was not just a lawyer who did her job, but a friend who really had my back. If you want a really smart and hardworking lawyer who also cares, take it from me, you will not be disappointed. She was the best thing that could have happened in my case. I NEVER write reviews, but I really want people to have the same experience as I had because I can't imagine how hard it is to go through a divorce without someone like Madana. She is the best!!!" - Joanna
"I was referred to Madana Hermiz by a friend who had just gone through a nasty divorce and said nothing but good things about her. I was really worried about my own because my ex was such a liar and so manipulative and I knew she was going to try to paint me out to be the bad guy and use everything she could against me. I have two kids and all I wanted was to make sure I could have at least 50% custody. The process was not easy at all, but Madana made it bearable. She always kept me in the loop, she always responded to my calls and emails, she always made time for me and she always explained everything to me and valued my opinion. The divorce was more expensive than I originally thought because my ex kept screwing things up and giving us the run around, but honestly, Madana was worth every penny and I would have gladly paid more." - William
"I met with Madana after reading so many great reviews, which is why I'm taking the time to write one now. I know first hand how important it is that the person you choose to guide you through one of the most anxiety-ridden times of your life is someone that is smart, professional, honest and that you trust will have your best interests at heart. After being married for 27 years and building a life together with someone, taking it apart was difficult but I felt so reassured having Madana there. We discussed pros and cons of every step we made and she helped explain everything to the point where I actually understood the law and what I was entitled to and what the risks were. I had friends who had gone through divorces and I remembered hearing their struggles with their attorneys and I honestly never felt that with Madana. She answered my calls and emails promptly and addressed my concerns right away. The best thing about her was that she was very straightforward and knowledgeable- she didn't sugar coat things just to make me feel better. She told me the truth and told me how things were from a rational stand point. She kept me grounded and focused on the important things." - Daniel
"Divorce is not east to face, especially if you believe it never could have happened to you. Finding an attorney is stressful and wondering what the process is going to be like is even worse. Madana welcomed me into her office and answer all the questions I had. She has the best interest in mind when working with her clients and is very quick to respond to any question and concerns you may have. I strongly encourage anyone to reach out to Madana and her office. They will take care of all your needs!" - Jonathan
"Madana is what I like to call a fined tuned professional. She really went out of her way to make sure I had an elaborate understanding of my situations, rights, and realities. A real breath of fresh air is best way I can describe both of my experiences with Madana. Its hard to find a lawyer out there that you can trust is fighting for your best interest. She's pleasantly honest, smart, and very affable. I personally cant put a price tag on her services but she's definitely my best friend in the courtroom." - Gibson
"Excellent Attorney. After two long years of litigation and a bitter business partnership divorce, my opinion of Attorneys and the justice system in general were, lets just say less then favorable, and when another issue came up and had to hire a lawyer, I was referred to Madana by a friend, she was very professional in handling my case, took the time to explain my options, followed up with me and kept me informed and above all she showed care and passion, something not many attorneys are capable off! Thanks Madana in restoring my faith in our justice system, more lawyers should follow your footsteps in putting their clients rather then their pockets first." - Fred
