    I have known Marci for over twenty years, as her supervisor, opposing counsel and colleague. Marci is a tenacious litigator and has demonstrated that in the various areas of practice in which she has engaged over the years. Her breadth of experience gives her the ability to deal with many situations and the wisdom to advise the best way to resolve them. I heartily endorse Marci for litigation matters.
