Mary has helped me with several Supreme Court briefs that involved complex family law questions. Without fail, Mary quickly captured the essence of the issues and developed a concise, coherent and persuasive analysis on each of the arguments. In short, her research and writing skills made my briefs significantly better. I highly recommend Mary to assist attorneys in preparing their Supreme Court briefs.

I have worked with Mary over the past seven or more years on a variety of matters in the business and corporate law arena, including three briefs to the Montana Supreme Court.  Mary’s knowledge and experience provide a solid foundation for research and writing in these fields.  I have also been very impressed with her ability to grasp complicated concepts in one of my narrower and more esoteric fields of expertise, federal income taxation.  I would highly recommend Mary for research, writing and analysis.

Mary DeNevi is the best researcher and writer that I have had the pleasure to work with in my thirty years of practice.  Mary has a unique ability to synthesize very complex issues, focus on the critical points and then express her findings with a very impressive writing style that is both concise and compelling.  On every level, Mary is a pleasure to work with and her work product is excellent in every respect.

Mary has made a great difference in the quality of my pleadings, motions and briefs.  Every document she drafts for me is clearly supported by appropriate facts and law.   Rarely do I have a need to change the text, unless she suggests a change upon new facts.  When I assign a project to her, I’m thoroughly confident that she grasps the issue, hits all four corners and is gracefully tactful in pointing out additional issues or rules precluding my course of action.   I rely on Mary as I would a partner; she understands the importance of confidentiality and treats my work with the utmost fiduciary responsibility.

Without warning, a long-time client became involved in a complex bankruptcy case. I needed help! I was able to rely on Mary’s background and expertise in Chapter 11 bankruptcy law to successfully negotiate for my client. Her advice and work were extremely valuable. I would not hesitate to use her again.
