I have known Marjorie for over a year, and it has been an honor to have her representation. Amidst a major life crisis that had turned my entire life upside down, and when I was terrified and confused, Marjorie helped me find clarity, put things in perspective throughout the legal process. She is knowledgeable, intelligent, confident, understanding, very pleasant, and compassionate as well as accommodating, fair and attentive with my case. She keeps me well informed every step of the way and made sure that I was making the right decision under the circumstances. She understood my goals that financially protected my teenage daughter and achieved the best possible outcome for all parties. I was very pleased and highly recommend Marjorie; she is an excellent lawyer and a truly genuine person.
After going through such a emotional experience in your life,not being in the write frame of mind,she made sure I clearly understood all that was going on.,and all the legal terms. She went over and beyond her job as rep-resenting me as her client
Marjorie Carter is a true professional. Marjorie represented me during my dissolution of marriage proceedings. She provided easy to understand explanations of the law and how it applies or does not apply to my situation. Marjorie was instrumental in guiding me through this taxing emotional time and process in a way in which I truly felt was fair for all parties involved. This was not about hurting or teaching a lesson, it was a tribute to the preservation of family with the emotional well being of my children always in the forefront. Marjorie is always prompt in returning calls and emails and is great in following through with me to ensure I'm comfortable with where we are and to ensure I know where we were headed. I highly recommend Marjorie Carter.
Went thru a bumpy divorce and she was very understanding and key point was she actually LiSTENED to what I was worried or scared about. I felt very much like she was part of my family, she calmed me down and told me how it is and I needed that -as I looked back - it is a very very hard thing to go thru in your life and I was glad -so glad I met Marjorie and that she helped me thru this.
I sought Marjorie's services when an unexpected pregnancy (not mine) complicated the mediated divorce that was in process, just to have someone in my court that I could use as a sounding board for questions.
One of the main issues that Marjorie assisted with was wording around the various scenarios in which my name would come off of the marital residence. For the stability of my daughters, I had agreed to allow my ex-wife to remain at the marital residence with my daughters until I had fulfilled my agreed upon maintenance responsibility. My goal was to protect my good credit should the economy not recover by the time it needed to be sold/assumed. Marjorie was able to help provide a concise wording that was able to protect my financial risk and I that I was able to deliver to the mediator and ultimately reach an agreement with my ex-wife.
I was very pleased with all aspects of the services that Marjorie provided, and while it was some additional expense in the process, she more than covered her fees with one simple change to the structure of child support. In my opinion, she is worth the money!
Marjorie is such a calm, efficient attorney. She works extremely hard at getting the job done. She is thorough and makes the time in her busy schedule to speak to you when you need to reach her. She is quick to respond to both phone calls and emails. She is very detailed orientated and he assistant, Sally, is wonderful as well.
Marjorie went above and beyond my expectations and I am extremely satisfied with her services. I went through a very demanding custody case and she was always prompt in speaking with me or returning my phone calls and\or emails. I would recommend her to any person looking for an honest, diligent, and precise lawyer.
I found Marjorie to be very responsive and helpful in walking me through first my divorce and then the motion to modify.
I was referred to Marjorie by another lawyer/friend and what a blessing she has been to me! My divorce started out very ugly, but with Marjorie and her support and caring nature, she brought a calmness to me. She is trustworthy and walks a path of integrity. She is kind, considerate and a great listener. Marjorie kept me informed of the proceedings and helped me to stay true to myself and my own personal integrity. A 34-year marriage ended amicably and calmly thanks to Marjorie. I was blessed to have her handle my divorce and I will refer her to anyone that crosses my path in the future.
She handled my divorce and custody case. The opposing attorney and judge were probably more helpful to me than she was. She drones on in court, talking in circles, and putting the court to sleep. She just did not show up for the last hearing. She sent a wimpy associate who had passed the bar the year before. She did not even notify me that she would not be there. She billed me about $40k for this year long fiasco. She paid no attention to the specific issues in the case--just went through the motions and churned unearned legal fees. Later I heard similiar stories from other people. . I cannot tell you how bad she was for me. I will be paying for picking her for the rest of my life. Get someone else.
