  • Jonathan E. Fields

    I’ve known Marion for many years and have referred many people to her either as a mediator or to advocate for them as their lawyer in a divorce negotiation. I’ve learned that the exceptional attorneys have both an objective knowledge of the law and a combination of wisdom, insight, judgment, compassion, and emotional intelligence. Marion has all these qualities. Her Harvard Law School pedigree bespeaks her keen legal intellect and Marion has an exceptional command of the law of domestic relations. She also brings to the table, however, the range of personal qualities mentioned above – and that, to my mind, is what sets her apart. I’ve negotiated many divorce cases with her in which she represents the other spouse and have always been impressed with her approach. As a mediator, she is also one of the very best. With her quiet command of the process, listening skills, and compassion, she is able to steer even the most difficult cases to resolution.

  • Sheryl J Dennis

    Marion, as a mediator, is the consummate neutral. She provides both parties with the opportunity to express their individual points of view and guides them to decisions that are in the interest of the parties and their families. She is patient, caring and respectful of the feelings and concerns of all involved while ensuring the parties attain a fair and equitable resolution of their matter. She is comfortable handling complex cases, and has the qualities necessary to bring resolution to any dispute. I recommend Marion Wasserman enthusiastically.
