“It was my pleasure to hire and work with Mary recently for a misdemeanor I received. I had many questions and needed a little hand-holding, and she was amazing! It was a first-class, professional experience from start to finish!”
“Attorney Higdon did an excellent job for us. She was interested, concerned, and most importantly, responsive. She always responded to a call or email within 24 hours, and when you are nervous, this kind of action is reassuring. We recommend her highly.”
“Mary Higdon is a wonderful lawyer! Going into my situation was very overwhelming, and there were a lot of things that I did not understand. Mary was very kind and respectful when answering all of my questions, and she always replied to me in a timely manner. Having Mary on my side to help me navigate through the legal process during a very stressful time was such a big blessing. She will assess your situation and explain everything to you and the possible outcomes. Just do your part in your case, and she will absolutely do hers. She goes above and beyond and really cares about your situation and outcome. I highly recommend Mary Higdon to anyone needing legal help.”
