Attorney, Marcia Shein, recently represented my son in a Federal Case. From day one, our family knew we were in the best of hands. It was immediately apparent that we had chosen an attorney that was extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, seasoned, articulate and intimately familiar with the Federal Court system. One of Marcia's most obvious assets is her ability to communicate and clarify all aspects of the case as she is speaking on the defendant's behalf, at the same time remaining respectful and humble. Don't get me wrong, Marcia is a "bulldog" that will fight for what she believes is the best for her client and not one to be intimidated; however, she achieves this with grace and pose....a very rare attribute. She was always honest and factual as she guided our family through every aspect of this case. She was a true advocate for my son and this is where her compassionate heart was so evident. I give Marcia the highest possible recommendation not only as an attorney but as a wonderful human being....we consider her family.

Not only is Marcia one of the most intelligent lawyers I have met, but she is filled with compassion. I have the utmost respect for her, for she tells it like it is. I always knew where I stood, and what my options were. I reside in Massachusetts and could not find anyone locally that knows more about Post Conviction as Marcia does. She is definitely a rarity. She will fight for everything you have coming and then some! To this day Marcia continues to answer all my emails, phone calls, etc. I have never not received a response from Marcia herself. I have, and will continue to highly recommend Marcia to anyone in need of a top notch attorney whether it be pre-trial, sentencing, appeals, or post conviction.

I strongly endorse Marcia Shein. She is quite simply the best federal defense attorney around. She genuinely cares for her clients and works tirelessly to get the result they desire. I have had the honor of working with Marcia on several matters and was overly impressed with her level of knowledge on federal criminal matters. She's the best around, period.

She is universally respected for her litigation skills, appellate work, and her tremendous work with GACDL as our President and director. I highly endorse Marcia!
