Choosing Ms. Sher was by far the best decision I could had made to handle my post-divorce matters. I can’t speak highly enough of Ms. Sher, who helped me through my child support case over the past half year. She is an outstanding lawyer, very professional, knowledgeable and very supportive . She is very diligent and has done so much homework for my case, gone through lots of paper work in great details and kept them very organized. She communicates very clearly and effectively, guided me all the way through the end. Having her made this painful process so much easier. She knew my case very well and fought in court graciously yet firmly. She is extremely smart, sharp, efficient and really knows the law and the system. She thinks so well under pressure and speaks very concisely and to the point. Watching her in action in the courtroom amazed me so dearly. Her professional, knowledgeable and calm demeanor is the best combination when dealing with family matters. Her office staff is also very friendly and responsive. I had hired other attorneys before to handle my divorce case, it was night and day. By comparison, Ms. Sher is truly exceptional and amazing. She gave me the realistic possibilities, but the result exceeded my expectation. I know she is very busy but somehow she made me feel like I was her only client. Trust me that you can’t find a better lawyer than her, a lawyer who truly keeps my best interests in mind and does real work to resolve matters for me rather than aiming for increasing her billable hours. She is well worth every penny I spent. I feel so blessed to have found her through this website. Thank you, Avvo! Thank you MARJORIE for all you did for me!!!

I hired Ms. Sher a little over a year ago to handle a custody case which is nearing completion. After noticing that she was the current Bar President and specialized in family law, solely in Lake County, I was assured that after our first consultation that I had hired I had a reputable attorney. She does indeed have great knowledge of the law, she gave me realistic expectations on the possibilities of my case and is well connected within the small legal community in which we live. Because family law matters rarely if ever come to a "winning" outcome for everyone, Marjorie's diligence in keeping me informed as well as her guidance to come to an agreeable outcome for all parties proved to save our family tons of time, money and heart ache. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her
