Marilyn Longwell is a trustworthy and highly skilled attorney. She took action to protect me, when it was needed and handled negotiations calmly and wisely. She has an erudite mind and she has very high standards.
Throughout the divorce I learned that I could always contact her with problems and questions and I learned that I could always rely on her judgement. Going through divorce is immensely stressful and knowing that I had Marilyn Longwell standing up for my rights took a lot of the stress out of the situation.
Marilyn is an amazing judge of character and completely knowledgeable in legal proceedings. She is able to work with people sensitively and sensibly and I would recommend her without any hesitation.

Marilyn was not only thorough and extremely competent in handling my unpleasant divorce case, but she was kind and compassionate to me throughout that very difficult time. The judgement was fair and equitable and I was able to move on without rancor.

Ms. Longwell handled my divorce and custody. She was able to settle the case before trial and got me a fair settlement, which provided for my child and my future. Through her efforts, a business partnership not previously disclosed, was discovered. Ms. Longwell was professional, yet thoughtful and considerate in her dealings with my family.
