Excellent legal services - highly recommended!
Mr. Marotta is an excellent attorney with an extensive background in divorce law and mediation. It has been a pleasure having Mark as an attorney during my recent divorce case. He guided me through the entire process. My questions and concerns (which I had many) were always answered in every detail. With Mark at my side I felt confident I was receiving top grade legal representation in court and during mediation. On top of his professional excellence Mr. Marotta is a great person to be around. I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a divorce attorney. Thank you for your services, Mr. Marotta!

Domestic Violence and Divorce
Mark showed compassion and was very professional. Office staff were attentive and supportive. I greatly appreciated Mark's willingness to educate and provide balanced advice throughout the entire process. I always felt at ease and well informed when I was ready to make a decision or take the next step. This was the most difficult and frustrating time in my life and I feel Mark represented my best interests. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent divorce mediation and formulation of a workable property settlement agreement.
Mark recently handled my divorce mediation. He has a great team, and in spite of our case being quite complicated, formulated an agreement that made all the complexities manageable. If you want to avoid the high costs of litigation, I would highly recommend Mark. His patience and accessibility made a difficult process go very smoothly.

Professional and compassionate Mediator that I would highly recommend
I used Mr. Marotta as a mediator in a divorce and he was excellent on every level. He was able to help my exwife and I navigate a potentially explosive and emotional situation while maintaining a professional atmosphere at all times. I found him to be direct and precise while still being compassionate and kind. I would highly recommend Mr. Marotta.

Excellent Seasoned Attorney
Mark assisted me and my ex-husband with our divorce by serving as a mediator. As a seasoned attorney, he was very knowledgeable about the divorce process and always provided thorough and practical answers to our questions. In addition, he is a very pleasant and down-to-earth individual making him very easy to work, which is what we needed during that stressful point in our lives. Since we had an amicable divorce and Mark did not represent either of us, he was the consummate mediator displaying fairness and impartiality and instilling a sense of trust in us from the beginning. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Mark to anyone needing a divorce mediator or divorce attorney.

Mark Marotta
I have used Mark Marotta's services on several occasions over the past decade, most recently to handle some power of attorney/living will work for my parents. He is diligent and attentive but, more importantly, he is knowledgable. His compassionate handling of divorce situations is second to none. I would definitely recommend his services.

Mark Marrotta - Outstanding attorney
Mark was the only positive thing regarding my divorce. During an extremely emotional and difficult time in my life Mark was a pleasure to work with. His knowledge, experience and voice of reason was just what I needed. He was a great listener and advisor. If someone is unfortunately in the position of needing a divorce attorney, I would absolutely recommend you contact Mark.

Mr. Mark Marotta
I came to know Mr. Marotta in the summer of 2003. I was heading towards divorce and needed a lawyer. Upon our first meeting, one could tell right away that Mr. Marotta was an understanding and fair individual. When we spoke, he looked me in the eye. Mr. Marotta is very thorough and very prepared. During each phase of my divorce proceedings, whether it was the divorce class at the Union County Courthouse, the Early Settlement Panel Hearing, or my actual day in Court before the Judge, Mr. Marotta always had me ready for what would take place. He was always upfront and honest about all the results that may or may not take place. While going thru a divorce is stressful enough, Mr. Marotta definitely kept me at ease with his calm demeanor. This made it easier for me to concentrate on the task at hand. Mr. Marotta's knowledge of the law, and his power of thorough representation, are very much appreciated and very much respected. Thank you very much for this opportunity to express my thoughts. Anonymous

Knowledgable and Trustworthy
I was referred to Mark Marotta by a friend who told me that he was a trustworthy and knowledgable divorce attorney. I was more than pleased with the service I received during a difficult time. Divorce is not an easy decision to come to, and Mark made me feel comfortable through the entire process. His guidance and friendly demeanor made it easy for me to ask him even what I thought was the silliest of questions. Even after my divorce was finalized, I still sought guidance from him and he never put me off or made me feel like I couldn't call him for advice. I would highly recommend the services of Mark Marotta.
