not only do i think attorney Williajm O. Marquis is an excellent lawyer but is a kind and caring person. It was a pleasure to know him. I thank Allah (God) for him for being there for my grandson in his time of need.

I was attacked by an entire family and even had my car stolen afterwards. The family called the police and concocted an outrageous lie to keep themselves in the clear. Since I'm 6'4" and 290 lbs. I was arrested.
That type of stereotyping didn't sit well at all with Bill. Regardless of me being African American, he fought because he's a fighting Irishmen who doesn't like it when people are wronged. Much so, this criminal complaint was dismissed by the DA.
Those cops had me misjudged from the beginning and it would have been a waste of precious oxygen trying to explain what happened to me. Just shut up and call Bill as soon as you're able.

I used Attorney Marquis for a criminal trial and this guy was excellent. I was charged with 1 felony and 6 misdemeanors. I previously had 2 different Attorneys on the case both told me that the case could not be beat because an ex-Judge was going to testify. I fired both of them and retained the expertise of Attorney Marquis and when the trial was over the jury found me guilty of one 1 misdemeanor charge. The Prosecutor had so much of the details sequestered and tried to make my case impossible to win but that did not intimidate Attorney Marquis at all. Attorney Marquis walked away with another notch in his victory column and I left the courthouse NOT a Convicted Felon. Thank-You Attorney Marquis

Attorney Marquis is an aggressive attorney who always pursues his clientâ€™s best interests. In addition, he has the legal skills and abilities to back up and support his clientâ€™s positions. In other words, he is very reliable and trustworthy in what ever matters he pursues.

Being Charged w/ 7 "FELONIES" and imprisoned is no happy thing.
Going to court- Judge wants to impose his own brand of "JUSTICE" and break procedures-calling the "Charged" person to a side bar w/the D.A.
Attorney Marquis-wasn't having it-called for new judge and there was order restored-D.A.'s office rep were disrespectful of procedures and tried to back door charges- Bill M. exposed their Dirty tricks and the Judge dismissed all (7) Federal cases-@ carrying 7 1/2 years. Bill was "worth" every penny and worth his weight in SALT. I tried 3 other attorneys who claimed that I would have to do some JAIL-Time: NOT with Bill Marquis
To be one of the "Top-Ten attorneys in the State and paid what I did-Freedom rang and i wasn't BROKE!!!

He's one of the best!!!
He helped me several years ago with a tough case, but he made it seem not so bad. I recently lost my motion hearing and it scared me a heck of a lot, but I know Bill would never want me to plead to a charge I didn't commit so I'm off to trial.

I was arrested and charged with grand larceny, burglary and other offenses and when my parents called Bill, he came to the jailhouse the very next morning. No other lawyer would do that so quickly. My parents almost retained the services of another attorney, but received Bill Marquis' information from a former client and thank god for that. I am an ethnic minority and was facing some very serious charges in an all white rural northern city of Wisconsin. Bill took my case to trial and put the prosecution's case to the test. Frustrating the prosecutor and police alike, one after the other came to the stand to testify against me in front of the all white jury and he held his ground. His firm, no nonesense, highly skilled and deliberqate approach is unequaled. by the end of the trial he had the jury wondering why they were even there. After the jury deliberated for six hours they came back with the sweetest words I have ever heard, "NOT GUILTY! We WON!!!
That is why Bill is the absolute best lawyer oney can buy!

Bill (William O.) Marquis is a professional, trustworthy, confident attorney. He did a great job for us. His expertise, experience, and knowledge of the law, are evident in the court room.
We would hire him again and recommend him to any one in need of a winning attorney. He has a reputation as the BEST!
