I was arrested for assault in the second degree when an ex girlfriend showed up at my house. I had asked her to leave, to which she refused, and a physical altercation erupted. Two additional warrants materialized that no one knew about added to my situation. Mr. Landsberg was able to get the latter two dismissed and charge reduced to abuse of a household member. The plaintiff had shown to be an excellent liar and we felt this was the best way to end this ordeal. His ability to think outside the box and extensive knowledge proved what a capable attorney he was. I hope to never ever see him again for related things but will gladly go to him for future legal issues.
I had a very troublesome case that I was sure no person in their right mind would want to touch. I was referred to Marcus by a Law School Classmate of his who said for this case you need a "PitBull", loyal and gentle to you but ready to protect your interest against those who would attempt to do you harm.
I found Marcus very enjoyable to speak with as he always made me feel at ease and explained things in a manner that a legal neophyte like me could relate to and understand He was always very direct and straightforward about what our plans were and what was worth my time, effort and money. I've had bad experiences with the rack up the billings kinda firms so i appreciated Marcus candidness and transparency.
Picking an ATTY by reading a bunch of Ye!p like reviews seems a little silly to me but I hope this helps you. My best advice is stop reading this stuff and just call him. I know you cannot go wrong and I would hire his firm again in a heartbeat.
I worked in court with Marcus for many years, so when I found myself needing advice, he's the one I called. That's because no one, and I mean no one, will go to the lengths he will to research all the facts, all the law, and all the options for your case. And if it goes to a hearing, no one is as tenacious and aggressive as Marcus. I've gone back to him several times for help with federal benefits I was being screwed out of and contract disputes. If I was ever charged with a crime, he'd be the first person I would call.
I am a hard working mother, wife and small business owner. While peddling my product I was cited by HPD for a petty misdemeanor. I was referred to Marcus Landsberg by someone that was also very satisfied with his professional abilities as a Lawyer.
I felt that he was very thorough with his research in regards to the violation that I was charged with. I was offered a plea bargain of a small monetary amount but I felt strongly that I did nothing wrong and did not want this on my record. He was ready to go to trial and not take the ease way out with the plea bargain. At the trial he ate up the prosecutors(3 showed up). Very attentive, on the edge of the chair and knew his business. He had everyone scrambling, including the Judge, to understand the law and all of it's revisions. In the end I was acquitted, found not guilty! I feel very fortunate to have met Mr. Landsberg and that his professionalism, knowledge and performance were outstanding!
When life throws lemons at you, let Marcus throw them back. I could not have had better counsel to represent and defend us. Accessibility to your lawyer is so important, and Marcus was always available; quick to respond completely my concerns over the phone and email, along with as much face-to-face time as I needed. He is thorough, honest, Jewish, and kick ass.
Marcus is the man! After several years honing his skills at the Office of the Public Defender, I know he has the experience and old-fashioned diligence to handle the heaviest of cases. He helped me immensely in my traffic cases, I'll definitely call him if I'm ever indicted for something worse!
