Steve W Marsee

About me

Steve W. Marsee is a Sole Practitioner who practices only in Marital and Family law. He attended the University of Miami School of Law, the University of Central Florida where he received his undergraduate degree in Legal Studies with a minor in Criminal Justice. While in the legal studies program, Mr. Marsee worked full-time, took 15 hours each semester (including two summer  terms) and maintained a 4.0 GPA in the legal studies program.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. Marsee became one of the youngest Chiefs of Police in the Country at the age of 29 after he received National Acclaim as Florida’s most successful Undercover drug Agent while serving as Investigator in Charge of Intelligence and Organized Crime for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. During this career, Mr. Marsee gained valuable experience in negotiating complex issues with a wide variety of people which has greatly aided him in his practice as a Marital and Family lawyer.

Mr. Marsee is a member of The Florida and Washington D.C. bars, U.S. Middle District Courts, the Florida Bar Family Law Section, the American Inns of Court, and a Charter member of the Central Florida Family Law American Inns of Court.
Mr. Marsee has personally handled over 1400 Marital and Family Law Cases since opening his own practice just 6 short months after he began his career here in Orlando as a Sole Practitioner in late 2000. His entire staff are all college trained and experienced trial Paralegals who regularly attend hearings and Trials with him to better serve his clients by assisting him in organizing the volumes of evidence and documents that come with the complex cases that he handles.

Before he became an Attorney, Mr. Marsee went through a particularly nasty Divorce
himself. During his case, the Judge complimented his work and asked him why didn’t he hire an attorney. He replied that all the attorneys who were competent and aggressive enough to deal with his case weren’t affordable and the ones he could afford did not seem competent and aggressive enough. The Judge then advised him to attend law school and practice Marital and Family Law and be that attorney that he needed who was competent and aggressive if needed but make his services reasonably affordable so he could help others who were faced with the ordeal of Divorce themselves.

Mr. Marsee prides himself in the fact that he can view other's not just from the facts in their cases, but also drawing on his own experience which greatly helps them deal with their own challenges effectively.

His philosophy is simple. “Vigorously litigate the issues that you feel are justified; concedethe ones which aren’t; attempt to mediate and settle things in between; research both beforehand throughly so you can recognize the difference and at all times, conduct yourself in an ethical and professional manner treating everyone you meet with dignity and respect.”

I urge you to contact me for a free consultation should you have need of a Marital and Family Law Attorney who is competent, aggressive (if needed), compassionate and will timely respond toyour and your families needs the way they should be. After all, family law can involve every aspect of your life including your children; your livelihood; your property; your future income and your security. Accordingly, you need a lawyer who not only has the educational experience, but the life experiences necessary to handle not just the legal issues of your case, but who is also capable of dealing with the delicate personal issues and sometimes difficult personalities of the parties involved in Marital and Family Law cases.
