Thankfully my personal legal situation didn't require any litigating or going to court, but Mara Lowenstein answered my questions quickly and looked into my case immediately. I'd been concerned for a few weeks about the status of my legal situation and she found out that there was nothing to really be concerned out.
I'd highly recommend calling Mara if you need legal help!

This was the first time we've had to hire a lawyer. Needless to say, we were a bit worried about the process at first (since this was our first time), but with a friend's recommendation, we contacted Ms. Lowenstein's firm (Obeid & Lowenstein, LLP) and then worked with Ms. Lowenstein on the case because of her expertise. Ms. Lowenstein was professional, knowledgeable and very quick to action. She quickly assessed the situation and she went to work immediately. She always kept us in the loop and she was always available via her cell phone. Her advice throughout the process was invaluable. We are definitely happy with the result and we highly recommend her.

Mara was my defense attorney in a civil lawsuit. She was able to successfully negotiate a settlement in a suit that has dragged on for more than a year, to a large extent because neither I nor the opposing party were willing to come to terms. She was able to negotiate a settlement that I could live with and enabled me to move on with my life. I would recommend Mara without reservation to anyone requiring a determined and trustworthy advocate.
