Mark and Dan have helped me navigate numerous small matters, both in and out of the court system, over the last few years. They operate their practice with the utmost professionalism, attentiveness, and most importantly, compassion. Recently, Mark helped with the negotiation and closing process on my new home, which helped make a stressful time go much more smoothly. I cannot recommend McNerney & McAuliffe enough!

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark McAuliffe as an experienced, effective attorney. I have consulted with Mark on two separate, very different situations and found him to be a superb listener, approachable and patient. He focused the discussions and actions on the desired end result and followed up to ensure that the matter was resolved satisfactorily. Highly recommended.
