Thank you for taking care of my children
Thank you for caring about my children and through your actions giving them a future that and I hope and believe will now be bright. The most important thing an attorney, a child rep or anyone can do is look after the children of our world. You helped look after mine, and my wife and I really appreciate it.

Gets the job done!
I found Marc to be thorough and very patient during a most traumatic time in my life. I was involved in a never ending custody battle. He was very empathetic and great with my child. He helped end this court case where others had failed. He worked hard on my case and got me the results that are in my child's best interest. I am grateful to Marc and he and my child still have a connection. My child cannot wait to play chess with him again!

Highly recommend.
I found Marc to be a man of integrity; a good family man. At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom with two very young sons and I was scared to death. My divorce was complicated, but he made the process much easier. He always made time for me, was clear, didn't sugar-coat and gave good advice. I remember him saying, and it still stays with me: "You'll get through this and you will have a life again." Well, he was right. Thank you.

Disrespectful. Doesn’t produce results.
Very disrespectful. In our first call I had to say “let me finish” three times before he stopped interrupting me. Took him 12 days to confirm receipt of an email. The secretary and other lawyer who were cc’d on it didn’t reply either. Office staff refuse to give him a message and only send you to his voicemail (he wasn’t responding, so that’s why I called the office). He forgot what we talked about for 45 minutes. He didn’t hold the other party accountable to the things we had both agreed on—and he was on the call when we agreed! He couldn’t produce any results, so I had to stop working with him. He charges $400/hour for this—save your money!

Awful - does not care about his clients - stay away
I hired Marc as my divorce attorney because his partner in the firm was a fraternity brother of mine and recommended him. I trusted Mark to represent my interests and clearly communicated my objective and stance. Marc appeared in court and did the exact opposite of what i had asked, but more importantly, did not communicate with me for two days. His form of communication is sending a bill and asking for more. Divorce is an emotional trauma and Marc's emotional intelligence is zero. If he treat's his partners's long-time fraternity brother like this, can you imagine how he'd handle your case! Run, Forest, Run!

Regret hiring firm
Marc did not appear to perform due diligence to investigate the issues brought to the firm for my case. Appeared to be more concerned with billable hours than thoroughly considering the best interest of my case. I feel more effort of communication on the firm's part would be helpful.

Condesending, arrogant and all about money
This firm questioned the integrity of the answers I gave them, grilled me and had zero concern for the well being of my children during my custody case! Did not feel like they were on my side!
