Here are what some former staff members had to say about working with us:

Lara Lynn Massey, former Senior Paralegal:

I worked for the firm over 10 years, and I would have continued to work for them if I had not moved to another state. It was easy to become loyal to a firm that believes in building a team environment and recognizing that employees are a valuable resource. A large part of the firm’s success has been because of its well-chosen staff. If you work for this firm, expect to be challenged to meet or exceed your potential, and to never stop learning. Also expect to have a group of loyal and supportive people around you, with a great sense of humor. That was the rewarding experience of my working for Miles Mason Family Law Group.

Kelly Wojciechowski, former Associate Attorney:

I worked for Miles Mason as a young associate.  What I appreciate most about my time at Miles Mason Family Law Group is Miles’ knack for teaching the practice of law.  Unlike many firms, he actually teaches young associates how to put what is taught in law school into every day practice. Whether it is deciding which motion to file or what advice to give to clients, Miles is willing to answer any questions and explain the reasoning behind his advice.  What I learned at MMFLG gave me a firm foundation in which to be confident in Court and with clients.

Roseann A. Willson, former Legal Assistant:

I was hired at this firm with little experience and yet was so warmly welcomed and encouraged to learn and grow. While at the firm, not only did I work with a great team of hard working and fun people, but I learned the intricate details of family law and the workings of a law firm. But what I learned in my time with the firm goes far beyond the office, and I still benefit from even today. If my husband and I hadn’t moved to Georgia I would absolutely still be a part of that team. Working at this firm was one of the most rewarding places I’ve ever worked.
