We greatly appreciate the excellent service provided by Tim Duckworth and his staff in addition to the very reasonable cost. My sisters and I were lucky that you were our father's attorney. He spoke highly of you and thankfully you made my job as executor/trustee easier!

A heartfelt thank you to Attorney Funt for his hard work, persistence, dedication, and working on a common goal - to provide our grandson with a stable environment. He is a fantastic attorney and we are so glad he represented our family.

We want to thank Bill Dayton for his timely and efficient work on our estate plan. We were putting it off and really needed to get it done. I feel so much better that everything is in order! His assistant Teri is very kind and helpful as well.

Denise E.

"Your firm is so diametrically opposite from the stereotypical lawyers. We felt fortunate to know one honorable, ethical attorney, but from what I'm learning, all of you are like that. There are no words to convey our thanks and appreciation to Harold Funt and Bill Dayton and we only want to deal with your law firm."

Frank W.

"Thank you for your flexibility with the handling of our estate planning. My parents tell me how glad they are to have found your firm and Bill Dayton, and how friendly you and your entire staff are!"

"My husband and I cannot find the words to express how much we appreciated Bill Dayton's immediate response to what essentially was a "moment of panic" situation for us! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Margie R.

"My divorce was anything but typical. Hal Funt and Kristie Beitler put so much attention into my case. No matter what my former spouse or his attorney threw at them, they were confident and reassuring...by my side at all times. They thoroughly explained all issues to me and I had complete trust in them. I am married again and my husband and I have been seeing Tim Duckworth for guidance as we set up a small business in the Lehigh Valley. I could not have a better network to look after my family and business! I have a close and long history with MFDD and could not feel more confident and safe!" (see our Testimonials page for full version.)

Lisa P.

"Attorney Hacker assisted me in a real estate matter and his assistant, Alexandra, was professional, responded quickly to all queries and was pleasant to work with as well. Should I require other legal services in the future, I will certainly contact them again. Thanks for making a legal process smooth and quick!"

Veronica J.

"I would like to express my thanks to Tim Duckworth and your staff for your assistance during my Dad's trust process. You made a complicated process as smooth as it could be, and we really appreciated it." ~ Andrea K.

"I will add my sincere thanks and appreciation for getting us through this legal process. My father always thought very highly of you." ~ Jeff K.

Andrea K. and Jeff K.

"My only regret was that I didn't use Attorney Funt's services in the initial part of my divorce. He took on my case to clean up a botched settlement agreement and helped resolve all issues with a deliberate and professional approach that was refreshing. Hal is a man of great integrity and I highly recommend his services."

Charles D.

"I would like to thank Attorney Hacker and his paralegal, Alexandra, for stepping up and helping me with a Power of Attorney for clients who are out of the country.  I hope to work with them again soon!"

Fran K.Realtor

"Bill, thank you for your professional approach and your clear explanation!"

Kent H.Financial Advisor

"Bill, thank you very much for your prompt time and attention related to our concerns about the "phishing" emails we received.  When things like this seem "fishy", the average person just cannot be too careful!  We feel so much better knowing you looked into this matter and took care of it for us!"

"I first met with Attorney Funt ("Hal") after my wife moved out of our home and my world felt like it was falling apart. He listened to my story and asked me questions that helped me to focus on the practical steps I had to take to land on my feet. I was sure there was no way I could keep my house, but Hal explained how I could. He negotiated a favorable agreement with my wife's lawyer and assisted me in the refinancing process for my home. Hal and Debbie were always there for me whenever I needed them. Now I own my home by myself and live there with my teenage daughter who wasn't forced to change schools. I was very fortunate to have my family's personal support and Hal and Debbie's professional support to see me through this very rough time."

"I have worked with each of the partners in business, tax and financial planning matters. MFDD provides common sense approaches in a time when common sense seems to be not so common. That's why I have a level of confidence when referring clients for legal services to the partners and staff at MFDD."

Brad S.

"I want to thank Tim Duckworth and the entire staff of MFDD for all of the help and support they have provided to me and my family during the administration of my mother's estate. They have been an invaluable resource, both for their legal counsel and even more so for their personal attention, help and support in times of stress and need."

Marietta E.

"Sincere thanks to Tim for writing a perfect will and for doing it so quickly."

"Hal and Debbie did a tremendous job with my legal issue. They worked hard to resolve my issues in a timely manner, and always kept me informed of any progress throughout the process. I would use them again, and I highly recommend them to anyone that I know."

Marshall M.

"Our company has been a client of MFDD and its predecessor for many years. Our experience has always been a positive one. Tim Duckworth is our primary contact and he is always very prompt in his response to our needs and very conscientious in his work. He is thorough and competent. We would have occasions where we needed services in a dire manner and he was able to come through for us in the last hour. Tim is very friendly, courteous and a gentleman in every way. We look forward to a long business relationship and would recommend him without hesitation."
