This law firm practices law in a manner to cost the client as much as possible. They are not interested in closing a case but rather dragging their feet and doing make-work which only serve to cost the client additional funds and add to their coffers. I was told that I would need to send them an additional 5K dollars to try and settle my case after they had basically spent all my money. As I was deciding what to do, I was summarily fired as a client and had legal action threatened. (I have the email to prove it) I quickly found another attorney and she settled my case within 3 months and for about 3K dollars total. Not only did she settle my case but I received a QDRO settlement of 140K from my ex, which Ms. Oorschot never evan addressed.

Marlo was very nice and she had many years in the field which drew me in. She was referred by a friend who was going through an amicable separation. In that situation, she might have been okay. For my situation, it didn't seem like opposing counsel respected her at all. She couldn't get any answers and we always seemed to defer to their proposals instead of having a strategy of our own. When I finally pushed to find out what our plan was, she lost her temper with me and we parted ways.
Divorce is an emotional thing. Marlo chose to be emotional as well, when she should have been my line of defense. I wouldn't select her unless you had an easy case and just need someone to administer the paperwork.

I was very pleased with my entire divorce process with Marlo Van Oorschot. Divorce is never easy and it gets more complicated with the emotional aspect of children. I was very happy with Marlo's knowledge and experience of divorce proceedings,as well, she understood the importance of compassion. My settlement gave me the time with my children I wanted. I would recommend Marlo to anyone who whats to look at all options available on the table to get a fair and reasonable settlement.

Marlo handled my divorce with skill, compassion, and wisdom. She peeled me off the ceiling regularly when things got difficult, and helped me make reasoned, rational decisions throughout the process. If Marlo agrees to handle your case, you will be well-served!
