My name is Attorney Marc Roberts and I want to let you know a little about me and what I believe. I am a graduate of University of Hartford with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I obtained my Law Degree at Roger Williams University School of Law in 2004. I passed the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Bar Examinations in 2004 and have been a practicing attorney ever since.


My career started as an Assistant District Attorney for the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office where I was stationed primarily in the Fall River District Court. I joined the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office in 2004 and moved on to private practice in 2006. In 2006 I opened the Law Offices of Marc D. Roberts on North Main Street in Fall River, MA and I remain here to this day. In 2011 I expanded my practice to include an office in Stoughton Massachusetts to service my South Shore clients.


I treat my clients with the respect they deserve. I value the relationships I have with my clients. I believe the relationship a personhas with their attorney is just as important as the individual skills of the attorney they chose to represent them. A client needs to be able to trust their attorney. Trust is built over time and with good communication. I make sure to take the time to explain my suggestions and actions to my clients so they know everything important that is going on. I am accessible and call my clients back in a reasonable amount of time.


I believe everyone needs to have a lawyer that they can goto with a large problem or just fo a quick piece of advice. People should use their general practice lawyer like they use their primary care physician. Your primary doctor can treat you for most things but if you need a specialist he orshe will know where to send you. I want to be your lawyer. I want to be the lawyer you call first about problems big or small. If I can’t answer your question I will point you to someone who I think may be able to. My philosophy is if I treat you well and try hard to help you succeed in your legal issues you will be happy and always come back to me. I want to handle your legal matters from A to Z.

The Man for the job!
If your looking for an attorney who will listen to your concerns and work with you vigorously then Attorney Marc Roberts is your guy! He is experienced, caring, and willing to fight for his clients. I wasn’t just a client to him but felt more like family everytime we spoke. He was extremely proficient in handling my divorce with a successful agreement in the end. His advice, manner, and patience with my girlfriend and I were flawless through the entire process. He listened to every concern we had and gave his best advice! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Amazing Lawyer
Attorney Marc took up my school case of severe discrimination that was going to end up my future achievement as a PMHNP and becoming a MD. He was able to challenge the school to policy that was baseless and their acts of criminality exposed. The school authority agreed to return stolen grades, allow me complete all clinical hours needed to successfully graduate from the school. I strongly recommend this lawyer to any helpless person and unfair treatment experienced at school.

Review on the best lawyer EVER ! Here's to Marc D Roberts
Marc is not only an amazing lawyer but he is reliable, he is trustworthy and he is absolutely the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He took the time to listen to my story which now a days is hard to find in a lawyer. He took the time to understand every detail. Soon after he completely understood. He answered my every email and call, if he couldn't answer the phone at the time within the next hour I had a call back. With his ambition and wits my case was dismissed !! He even had my mothers case dismissed !! He's infact Fall Rivers Finest of lawyers. If you need or anyone you know needs a great lawyer Mr.Marc D Roberts is your guy. Thanks again Marc, you're the best ! -Brookelynn

Family Law
I would like to extend my appreciation to this attorney for my representation in family law. He is very knowledgeable, courteous, well spoken, and a great mediator. His direct contributions saved me money in litigation and facilitated the process to a one day hearing. In my opinion he is a great asset to anyone in need of legal advice.
