This was the first time we've had to hire a lawyer. Needless to say, we were a bit worried about the process at first (since this was our first time), but with a friend's recommendation, we contacted Ms. Lowenstein's firm (Obeid & Lowenstein, LLP) and then worked with Ms. Lowenstein on the case because of her expertise. Ms. Lowenstein was professional, knowledgeable and very quick to action. She quickly assessed the situation and she went to work immediately. She always kept us in the loop and she was always available via her cell phone. Her advice throughout the process was invaluable. We are definitely happy with the result and we highly recommend her.
Mara was my defense attorney in a civil lawsuit. She was able to successfully negotiate a settlement in a suit that has dragged on for more than a year, to a large extent because neither I nor the opposing party were willing to come to terms. She was able to negotiate a settlement that I could live with and enabled me to move on with my life. I would recommend Mara without reservation to anyone requiring a determined and trustworthy advocate.
Mara reviewed my contract for employment by a financial services firm. She had detailed industry-specific knowledge of issues such as confidentiality, non-solicitation, non-compete clauses and arbitration agreements. She gave excellent advice and helped me to both understand the contract and to clarify specific parts with the employer. I'd happily recommend her to colleagues.
