Previous Experiance with Marc Capone
I've used Mr. Capone in the capacity as a consultant prior to and after filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. He was extremely easy to talk to as well as his staff. This sometimes "painful" process progressed very smoothly and Marc presently remains available to me any time I have a question. The entire firm was responsive to all my needs and did this in a very timely fashion. I would recommend Marc to anyone who is seeking financial advice before, during and after filing any type of bankruptcy or if in the process of a foreclosure.

Rocky's review of Marc Capone
I am a disabled Viet Nam War veteran and when I first went to see Mr. Capone to discuss a legal matter we both realized early in the meeting that the matter was not persuable. Even after realizing that, Mr Capone spent a great deal of time and patience advising me in a legal capacity, even though he knew he would not be collecting any fee. Subsequent to that time, I have become a client of Mr. Capone and found him to outstanding in every respect.

Knowledgeable and Empathetic Team
I retained Marc to represent me in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and he and Tiffany guided me through this extremely embarrassing and humiliating process with out judgment and with empathy. I cried every time I spoke or met with them and they always reassured me that things would get better, and they did. Tiffany was completely accessible and Marc was always punctual and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Highly recommend.

Only Attorney who knew how to file a discharge of tax lien
Marc Capone filed a motion for my wife to have a tax lien removed. We spoke to 3 other attorney's before we hired Marc, and they had no idea how to get this lien off. It took a few months to go through the court, but Marc and his team got it done. He gave us a very reasonable all inclusive price to get the job done, even though there was some back and forth with the courts. We are very pleased with his service and the outcome.

Wonderful Lawyer & Professional Staff
Marc and his entire staff were extremely helpful, understanding, and professional. My wife and I were very happy with the way they handled our case and kindness they showed towards us. They took a very difficult situation and made it so much better. We highly recommend them and would use them again for any legal matter.

Real estate transaction
Marc was recommended to us and he did a wonderful job advising us throughout the purchase of our new home. When we sold our old house we asked Marc to handle the closing for the sale as well. Again, his guidance was valued and the closing went smoothly. We highly recommend Marc.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy case was filed with Mark Capone. My husband and I had always had very good credit we took pride in keeping our credit that way. But went through some financial hardship and Mark helped us out and made the process less frightening than we thought it would be!

Highly Recommend Marc Capone
Upon hiring Marc Capone for our Bankruptcy, both personal and business, I found him to be not only very professional, but kind, caring and understanding of our situation. Bankruptcy is not an easy event to go through, especially for the first time and Marc made us feel very comfortable with his knowledge of the facts. Would highly recommend Marc Capone to anyone dealing with the same issues.

Can't ask for better representation!
I struggled for several years with the humiliation of filing for bankruptcy; in spite of having met with Mr. Capone for this purpose, I just couldn't take that final step. He and his staff were extremely supportive and compassionate and truly understanding of the circumstances which led to this decision. I have worked with many lawyers in my lifetime and can't speak highly enough of this man and the services he has rendered.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
I was recommended to use Mr. Capone while in other legal counsel from an attorney that I m currently working with . Suggesting that I contact Mr. Capone regarding a personal Bankruptcy . I contacted Mr. Capone, met with him and his admin Angela and found that not only did they put me at ease in reassurance that all legal issues with my case will be resolved and all will be well ,that I was in fact making the right decision based on where I financially stood at that time of our meeting . I was at once comfortable with hiring Mr. Capone for his legal counsel and representation after he informed me well with my financial issues and options . After our initial meeting I made a decision to move ahead with a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy,par his recommendation. I Highly recommend using Mr. Capone for such services and any other legal issues you would want counsel with and representation for. He and his Firm are a Highly Professional team that are warm, courteous,kind and extremely helpful. All documentation was prepared ,filed for me by Mr. Capone and his staff, the meeting with the court was all prearranged for me and was effortless for me the day of my case in court from beginning to final closure .It was all handled extremely well by Mr. Capone and his admins . I will continue to use Mr. Capone for any current or other future legal representation I may need. Thank you once again for your services and to your staff Mr. Capone. Sincerely, Jersey Shore Client

Caring and Understanding Lawyer that Can Get Rid of Pressler and Pressler
Marc Capone was an outstanding lawyer to use for bankruptcy in order to get back on my feet. I felt guilty about financial mistakes I made in the past and had judgements and medical bills. Marc answered all of my questions and my follow up questions were answered quickly by Tiffany. The whole staff is very friendly and thorough. When we went to bankruptcy court in Trenton, there were several cases with other lawyers that did not go so smoothly (missing paperwork, incorrectly filed documents, etc...). My case with Marc went very smoothly and was a great guide. Marc Capone is highly recommended.
