Mr. Emden was both business-like and very friendly at the same time. He asked me to take my time and tell him my case from the very beginning so as to not omit anything. He then asked me detailed questions to fill in the gaps. After explaining the law and where my case stood, he told me the 2 options I had and how much he would charge. He also explained that if an appeal was necessary, it would cost me an additional fee, which he quoted. He also told me that while he was going to try his best regardless of the option I chose, the chance of winning, under the circumstances was very slim. I felt comfortable because I knew not to have unreasonably high hopes and also exactly how much each option would cost me. Mr. Emden also told me that I needed to get some documents together.
I called him several times with questions regarding the documents. Each time, Mr Emden returned my calls promptly. He called me on his own several times, including one week before trial and the day before trial. The case ended better than we both had hoped for.
Marc Emden acted with a strong sense of urgency on my case which was time sensitive. He connected promptly with the appropriate resources for my complicated business litigation matter. Notably, he exercises compassion with clients in a meaningful way. I strongly recommend Marc Emden without reservation.
Initial consultation was thorough and thoughtful. Mr. Emden handled all facets of my case reliably and professionally, and as if my relatively small case was just as important as any other.
Mr. Emden represented me in a law suite of a rather sensitive nature. He conducted my case with the highest level of respect, dignity and privacy. Given some unique features of the lawsuit Mr. Emden demonstrated outstanding preparation and strategic thinking. His experience was evident and he conducted himself in an organized and efficient manner. I highly praise him for his proactive and ethical approach. Without reservation I would recommend him in those situations similar to mine, which required the depth and breadth of legal knowledge necessary to represent a complex and sensitive case in court, upholding my rights in accordance to the legal protections afforded me under the law, and maintaining confidentiality and discretion throughout the process.
Marc is decent, reliable person and specialist. From the beginning I though - reasonably optimistic, in the end it turned out to be realistic: all expectations became real. The event itself is very depressing, and Marc did everything personally and professionally to make it more bearable.
Attorney Emden is an outstanding professional who represents the interest of his clients.. He provided our family with guidance, protection and expert advice in a very difficult situation that involved an incorrect procedure by law enforcement personnel. Attorney Emden demonstrated an understanding of the situation, expertly represented his client and achieved a positve outcome where justice prevailed.
For anyone seeking to be represented by a client-centered attorney with mastery of the structures, processes and application of the law , I highly recommend attorney Emden.
SaId he was experienced in the area I needed, took my case, and took my money. Did not send the defendant the official forms that my later (much better) lawyer sent. After spending all of my retainer, told me he didn't believe we could win, although nothing had changed from when he took the case. Did not return one cent of my retainer. Increased my stress enormously at a very bad time in my life. By contrast, my second lawyer won the case easily; jury was out only 20 minutes.
