Hello and thank you for viewing my page. I strive to show compassion and kindness to my clients while providing them exceptional legal guidance. I do not do this job in an effort to become wealthy, I do it to try to make a difference in the lives of others. I understand that for my bankruptcy clients, this is often one of the most difficult decisions in their lives. It is also one of the most stressful times in their lives so I try to keep that in mind as I work through the issues with them. Each client is important to me and I make every effort to be sure they know that. If you want a lawyer who isn't as worried about the bill as she is about you, than you can count on me!

Marianne is both a fellow lawyer in my Sacramento community and a wonderful friend. I'm endorsing her in the area of commerical litigation which should be broadly construed to include all aspects of civil litigation, including business disputes, employment disputes and bankruptcy issues. Marianne is top notch as an attorney and a person. You will not find a harder-working, more talented or thoughtful counseler in this community. She is an outstanding legal writer and strong advocate for her clients.

I have worked with Marianne Waterstradt on numerous matters over many years. I am endorsing her in the general area of litigation, which includes all aspects of civil litigation. But I also endorse her work in corporate practice, including business formation and counseling. Marianne is a skilled attorney, and extremely committed to the best interests of her clients. It would be very hard to find an attorney willing to work harder to learn about a client's business or the legal areas surrounding the client's needs. Marianne is one of the most honest and ethical attorneys I have ever worked with -- her intergrity is simply beyond question. I have also referred clients to her for representation in the bankruptcy field. She approaches that area with a unique compassion for the difficult positions her clients confront. I endorse Marianne Waterstradt in all areas of civil practice without hesitation or reservation. She is a truly wonderful attorney and friend.
