    • I do not recommend Marianne Pantelakis.
    • I hired Marianne more than 3 years ago.
    • Marianne handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Do not use this attorney for any part of your divorce. She is disorganized, blames clients for her numerous mistakes, authors the most awful pleadings, shows them to you at the last minute and drags out the case as long as she can, argues like crap before the bench, is negligent, unprofessional, communicates poorly with everyone. She does not prepare her summation for the judge until she gets to court and jots down awful notes on lined paper just before you approach the bench. She is a fake too because she will walk in with files and boxes that her secretary hands her as she leaves her office. It is all for show. She is totally unprepared, blames you or anyone else she can and never takes personal responsibility for anything. Don't ask to see your file because she has no idea where it is and documents disappear. I am amazed she is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth. Buyer Beware. Don't ask her advice on anything because it will just be circular illogical slopism, vagueness that is beside your point, or no answer. Her interest is hours she can charge (period).

  2. Consumer beware !!!!

    This was my atty for my divorce/child custody battle. She forgets what she is told. She is moody and screamed at me often to the point where I was brought to tears in public places ( phone calls).. The worst was that she has been communicating with my ex through email and phone calls without telling me what they were discussing when I asked, and refusing to send me copies of the emails she received. She refused to speak to me for several months without stating a reason.. She would not allow me access to my file. She recently, without warning, abandoned me in the middle of a child custody action brought by my ex. She doesn't listen or believe anything you say - even with proof. She failed to file paperwork and made deals with my ex's atty behind my back. She made promises she didn't keep . She is mean and vicious with a terrible "rage"(her words) . She is better suited to real estate. She is self-preserving without any thought for one's feelings. If you are depressed, sad, lonely and suffering horribly - don't hire her -

  3. Old and forgetful

    We went to court and the atty could not recall even the basic facts of my case. She said "staph" instead of "strep".She called other attorney's "sister". She does the minimum. The more money you have, the more she charges. She is not a go-getter as her friend wrote. She screamed at us as we left her office, and fought with us on her stoop outside. We would not hire her again.
