Very Deicated Attorney “Marcia Armstrong “
I hired Marcia Armstrong to represent me a in divorce. She was very professional, compassionate and all around a top notch attorney & individual . I had an usual case it took many years to settle. Marcia never gave up on my case even when I would give up on myself. She would always share some of her encouraging wisdom with me & help me through this very difficult ordeal in my life. Not only did she do a great job representing me as an attorney she also had an effect on me to be a stronger better person. Marcia is one in a million!

Great Lawyer
Excellent attorney. Really knows the law and the judicial landscape. Great resources with her law firm. Great demeanor. Extremely effective with other lawyers and judges. Very busy but well worth the wait to retain her. Recognized by her peers as among the best.

Really great attorney
Marci helped me through a difficult three-year case that involved child support, spousal support, and difficulty with an investment that my ex and I owned. Thankfully, my kids and I are going to be fine for he next few years, I am grateful for her wisdom, guidance and support through a difficult time in my family's life. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
