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.
I hired this attorney to file my divorce papers, things got messy and she basically let things slide after that. Her process server got assaulted by my ex and the process server was mad and she rather keep her process server than work on my custody case. She also did not file papers to freeze specific assets right away allowing my ex to wipe out 22 years worth of my contribution to the family's wealth. I would not recommend her to anyone.
Colleen is an outstanding lawyer, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has to walk through the divorce process. She is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and very compassionate. More importantly, she is extremely honest and fair. Whenever I had questions, needed paperwork completed, or had to meet with her I knew that everything would be taken care of immediately. My ex has often said he wished he had hired Colleen before I did! :-)
Colleen is extremely knowledgable and wonderful to work with. She was very compassionate and understanding. Additionally, she is very responsive. She understands the laws and the legal process as well as the emotional process of divorce. She made it very easy and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering divorce.
