Marta was unresponsive, passed me off to other underlings in her office, did nothing for me that I didn't suggest to her, failed to protect me from tax ramifications two years after the divorce that she should have made me aware of.
Marta did SUCH a great job explaining everything to my husband to make him feel more comfortable about the mediation process. He was very skeptical that mediation would work. She is very knowledgeable, that is evident, with just the right level of empathy and I feel was very fair to both parties as well. I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. For me, divorce really has been a last resort and not one that I contemplated lightly. I am so glad our counselor recommended that we see her about it. While my husband can't see it now and may never be able to, I would hope that some day he would realize what a far superior process this was over his previous two divorces. Her office environment was a pleasant bonus. For a difficult process, having a warm, comfortable office space made all the difference. I will recommend not only Marta, but the mediation process to anyone I know considering a divorce.
Marta is very creative. I was always pleasantly surprised by her well reasoned responses to challenges / nonsense from opposing counsel. Marta's staff is very responsive and caring. Divorce / custody / modifications are PAINFUL, but Marta's staff takes a little of the sting out of the process. While I am elated that my ordeal is over, I do MISS Marta!
Going through a divorce is tough, and I had no idea where to start, but finding Marta’s practice was the best thing that could have happened. I had an initial consultation with Marta and she went over how the divorce process works, the general timeline, what I would need to do, and what I needed to look out for. Having this type of guidance allowed me to focus on the areas that mattered, and eased the concerns that were unnecessary. I was given sound advice on the best avenue to pursue, and it was incredibly helpful in reaching a quick and amiable resolution. Once my (now) ex-wife was ready to proceed, we made it through all the paperwork in just 11 days, thanks to the responsive and helpful staff at this practice. I really like that Marta and her team always tried to make the process as painless and efficient as possible instead of dragging things out and running up my bill. If you are looking for responsive and effective service, I can’t imagine going anywhere else.
I was filled with fear and uncertainty when my spouse and I broke up. Marta gave me confidence, built up my self esteem, and helped me get through the divorce with my head held high. She provided me with excellent service that you can only get from a small law firm that cares about it's clients. Thank you, Marta!
When I first met Marta Papa in June, 2000, I was absolutely petrified of what kind of life I was going to have after 20+ years of marriage and being a stay-at-home Mom for most of that time. Marta and her amazing staff took me through each stage and phase of every option available and helped me to consider each and every choice very carefully. Not only for myself, but for my children and our family. And not only just for NOW but for the FUTURE, too! Her understanding and knowledge of not only the law, but of family dynamics made a terrifying process run smoothly. Of course you appreciate the brillant lawyers who can help you and your children, but I am even MORE grateful to Marta because of her ability to touch our human feelings and needs. Warmth, caring and love is a vital element that is not found in much of this process.....but you will find it in abundance with Marta.
