We had a very confusing legal question that we posted on Avvo. Marc not only responded online, but took the time to talk to us. He asked questions, listened, and explained everything in very clear and simple terms so that we would understand. He was very easy to talk to, and we wish that we had contacted him much earlier.

I had several legal issues following the sudden death of my spouse. Marc answered my questions and put my mind at ease at a time when I needed it most. He is very straightforward and provided me with excellent advice. I would recommend him for your any legal issues.

My father-in-law died unexpectedly in Jan. of 2012. The attorney he had used in the past for will and estate planning issues had retired. Therefore we needed to quickly retain someone who could help us with administering and closing out the various trusts involved.
I contacted several attorneys to discuss our situation and the family decided to engage Marc. He knew exactly what to do on our various issues and prepared the necessary paperwork quickly.
He has been responsive, timely and exceedingly helpful in assisting us on various followup issues.
My brother-in-law (retired attorney) who worked with Marc on some of these issues was very impressed with Marc's knowledge and his manner in dealing with the bereaved family.
Can't say enough good things about Marc.

Called Marc from another state to ask questions regarding Florida probate law (as my father died in Florida) , as I had questions regarding his debt and estate. Marc was very nice and answered my questions within 2 minutes on the phone. I've never met Marc, but he was super nice and helpful. I didn't know who to call in Florida, but I decided to call him due to all of his outstanding reviews on the web.
