Ms. Bierer is a tremendous lawyer who made my life better. She fought very hard for me and got me the kids. She was very reasonable with what she charged me (much less than I expected) and in every respect she was wonderful.

Marilyn Bierer is a terrible lawyer. I hired her in a child custody dispute. She advised me very poorly and made false allegations, angering the judge, who shifted custody to the father. She charged outrageously for needless motions and discovery. I eventually fired her but she still cost me over $100,000 in wasteful actions. She's also a screamer and a bully if I didn't drop my life and career immediately for her endless requests. She screwed my case up so bad I got virtually nothing in my settlement. Her staff are nice but I feel bad for them having to work around her. I constantly asked to move the case to mediation but she refused, insisting on litigating every single issue. She lost almost every motion yet charged tons for bad work. I've since learned that she has a terrible reputation among judges and attorneys and has been losing cases becuase of it. I think she's getting out of divorce law now.
