We were pleased after our first meeting with her and the adoption went through without much trouble, partly because the other party did not dispute it, so it was a fairly easy case. We are still glad that she was there to help us.
We did feel that there was a lack of communication. We had to keep inquiring about new developments because we would not get updates, and there was a lack of knowledge of court timing on some of the people helping her. We even received wrong information about a different person which made us think that someone had appealed the adoption (someone at the court gave our lawyer information about a different case and our lawyer passed on that information to us without double checking for accuracy).
She was affordable and got things done in a timely fashion, but communication with clients needs to improve.

Attorney Markou has been there for me throughout numberous custody, parenting time issues, and child support changes. She is the only attorney that I will use because I believe that she cares about whats best for the kids. She is very supportive of the whats RIGHT! She always makes herself available and has had numberous wins with just my case alone. I HIGHLY recommend attorney Markou to anyone who feels they need advise and/or assistance with child support, parenting time arrangements, and custody. I only wish i knew of her when i filed for divorce in 2008. She's a GREAT attorney.

Colleen Markou worked with me for a post divorce alimony case.. She was able to make me feel comfortable going back to court with an ex that had been abusive. She was also able to recover a large amount of back payments from him. She is very professional and honest in what she can and cannot do.
I was so pleased with her that I referred her to my daughter and would refer her to any of my friends or colleagues.

After a complete lack of representation from my first attorney I hired Colleen and she willingly picked up the reins. She worked continuously to rebuild the lack of trust I felt towards attorneys in general. She returned calls, e-mails, and responded To legal correspondence immediately. My case was settled in mediation within 6 months of hiring Colleen. She walked me through the process, gave good advice, gave me much needed support, and represented me to the BEST of her ability. I would recommend Colleen for ANY family law needs and I am happy to now call her my "friend". I am blessed to know that she will continue to represent me in my custody case as it evolves.

Colleen is a go getter! She was recommended to me by a good friend who got tired of listening to me complain about my previous attorney. From my consultation to today, I have been extremely happy with her services. Because of Colleen's expertise and her passion for helping people, she was able to get the appropriate parenting time for my daughters and me. Colleen has given me the confidence to go after what is right. I highly recommend her to fight for you and your family!

Colleen Markou is an amazing Lawyer. She was able to help my husband get sole custody of his son and also helped get the parenting time we wanted. Colleen is extremly trustworthy, hard working, honest and confident in her abilities to get the job done. We could not have asked for a better lawyer!!

I hired Colleen to take care of several matters for me. One was dealing with a collection dispute. The other was working with FOC to reestablish and review my current child support order. In both cases I was very glad that I had Colleen on my side. She was professional and efficient. My cases were handled promptly and I was kept informed of where I stood each step of the way. If I had any questions, either Colleen or her assistant were available to answer them.
Working through legal matters is never fun. However, Colleen made the process much easier than I had thought it was going to be. I would recommend Colleen to anyone who needs legal counsel. She's worth her weight in gold.

used tactical delaying so paperwork had to be rewritten (and re-billed) several times; charged thousand$ for negotiating child support when F.O.C. would have done it for free-it's based on both party's income; I ran out of money because it took so long to get anything settled- when I was unable to make payments (because ex didnt have to give me a dime for months while "mediating") she did not properly represent me or counsel me; ended up filing bankruptcy while ex made 6 figures and he got the house

Colleen picked up on a case that was pretty much a mess and got up to speed immediately. I have complete confidence in her abilities and her commitment to her clients for the best outcome possible.

Attorney Markou handeled my divorce case and did an amazing job! Colleen was tasked with a situation where there was a conflict of interest with my case and the judge in the county where my divorce case was to be heard. Ms. Markou, immediatly contacted the SCAO (State Court Administrative Office) and had them assign the case to another county which worked out much better. I would recommend Colleen Markou and the staff at Stancoti and Associates to anyone with any legal needs.
