Skilled and dedicated
Maggie worked for me on contract issues related to engineering projects and personnel issues. Her work has always met or exceeded my expectations. Maggie has a strong work ethic and shows real passion and commitment to her work. She is able to understand complex ideas and provide relevant legal analysis to project issues.

Guardianship of minor child
We couldn't have been anymore pleased with the professional manner in which Mrs. Marnocha (Maggie, as she preferred) handled the guardianship of our granddaughter. We needed someone who would be warm and caring in our situation and that she was ! We would definitely call her for any other legal issue that may arise in our future.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have practiced law in Indiana since 1994 and met Ms. Marnocha in 1998 when she clerked for me in the South Bend City Attorney’s Office. She was a hard working, dependable and supportive collaborator in numerous federal litigation matters. She also diligently worked to solve a decades-old local matter. She was an asset to the City Attorney’s Office. After leaving the City Attorney’s Office in 2000, we kept close ties and supported each other in our respective careers. I know Ms. Marnocha tackles big and small legal problems with efficiency and civility. Her clients appreciate her and praise her for her work. She is a credit to our profession and even encourages local youth to explore our profession. I would seek her legal advice without hesitation."
