Previous client
Marc and his firm (Jenny & the rest) worth every dollar they earned. I'm very pleased with the outcome of a matter I hired him to handle. If fact he exceeded my expectation what make him a good friend to me now. I already started gifting the people I care about to use Marc and do business with him. He is the best in what he does.

Excellent Attorney/Professional Service
Marc Alster is an excellent attorney who helped me work through all the preparation and filing for bankruptcy. Very professional; he explained the process, what I was required to do, provided referrals which successfully helped me make the decisions I needed to make to make the right decision for me. I ended up applying for Chapter 7 and Marc worked with me every step of the way. He is an expert in his field and highly respected. I would not hesitate to hire Marc again and would highly recommend his services to my friends and relatives.

Excellent attorney who cares
I first heard about Marc's service through a friend. I really was not certain on how to go about the process of filing for bankruptcy but he made it so simple. He was relaxed, easy going and very friendly, I felt as if I had known him for years. He made me and my wife feel comfortable from the beginning, and his staff were very very professional and courteous. What a wonderful experience and a life changing event. I feel as if I am a new man now ready to restart a life that was in ruins. Thank you Marc from the bottom of my heart! I highly recommend him to anyone considering this type of service.

Helped me when I needed it the most.
Thanks to Marc Alster and his staff I have gotten a second chance. I received a letter from Marc's office to come in for a free consultation; although I had consulted with 2 other "bankruptcy attorneys" who said I would not qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Marc assured me that although I was close I was well within the limits for a Chapter 7. He was very supportive and understanding and his knowledge process helped calm my many fears. Today, a couple of months later I am debt free. God Bless Marc Alster and his wonderful staff." - R.T., Bergen County
