“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ~~ Benjamin Franklin
There is definitely not a single word to describe Ms. Pare – she is loyal, dedicated, and honest. She is an amazing strategist with the integrity of none other while personally embracing the facts of the case. Ms. Pare most importantly is the best legal and personal adviser one could ever hope to find in an attorney. I highly recommend listening to and embracing her advice (even if you have to swallow hard!). She will point you in the right, moral, and fair approach for your children’s benefit. Ms. Pare picked up my divorce case, which has a case history longer than any criminal facing death row (no kidding!) after I finally decided to let go of my first attorney. In 7 continuous years of litigation (because my ex-wife refused to settle on any issue), I only convinced the court twice to rule in my favor (These were both under the direction of Ms. Pare). These two rulings were huge. I now have an ex-wife who is behaving and cooperating solely because of Ms. Pare and her strategic legal approach. The second ruling in my favor was over child support modifications after I was laid off from my job of 10 years and then started my own business. My start up struggled in the beginning as most start up companies, but I was making $30,000 – $40,000 dollars a year. However, my ex-wife decided to file a suit against me saying that I was “voluntarily impoverished”. Yes, believe it or not the State of Maryland has a law that says if you make less money judges can input the salary they believe you should be making based on past jobs and education! Alice was absolutely BRILLIANT during the court hearing and the judge ruled in my favor. In seven years, I have been in court every single year sometimes multiple times for just about everything you can think of that could happen in a divorce and custody case. Ms. Pare changed my life and the lives of my children. If you are thinking about hiring an attorney, you will be missing the boat if you pass on Ms. Pare. She is worth every hour!
