A Remarkable Attorney
Attorney Marc McDonald came highly recommended by a close friend of the family. Attorney McDonald did not disappoint. The very first meeting, he listened intently as I explained the circumstances of the case. He asked a multitude of questions, gathered documents and developed a clear and concise plan of action. He guided me through the lengthy and daunting legal process with his invaluable knowledge of the law. He gave me practical and expert advice which I then used to make informed decisions. His exceptional communication skills were key in making the process less stressful for me. He responded to every e-mail, phone call, or voicemail personally and promptly. I was kept apprised of every correspondence from either the court or opposing counsel. I was never left in the dark. Attorney McDonald was extremely patient despite my frequent and at times overwhelming inquiries. He worked tirelessly to resolve any areas of concern that I had. His many years of experience as an attorney, helped me to trust his instincts. They were always "spot on". He exceeded every expectation I had. When the two day trial finally came, he arrived on time, well-prepared, confident and focused. He was and is a skilled litigator. I knew I was in very capable hands. Attorney McDonald is a man of integrity. He is a humble and quiet man by nature, but don't let that lead you to believe that you don't have the absolute best advocate fighting on your behalf. You do! He uses his years of experience and legal knowledge to present the merits of your case. You can trust that his commitment to you and your case is his top priority! I would not hesitate to use or refer his outstanding legal services to my family, friends or colleagues now or in the future. He is a consummate professional. I am forever grateful for his unwavering support during one of the most emotional and stressful times in my life.

Don't let his unassuming personality fool you. Marc is a powerhouse.
We had to switch attorneys midway through a long stressful lawsuit after the previous attorney was overcharging and underperforming for us. We found Marc after asking a friend for a referral. He took over the pre trial phase in a way that restored our confidence in the system and our case. By the time we got to trial Marc's iron fist in a velvet glove ,combined with his knowledge of the nuances of our case and the case law , resulted in a slam dunk for us. We would recommend him without hesitation. J Landis
