This review is 2 months overdue. The staff of the Marks Law Firm are remarkable!!!! Mr. Marks, from the first interaction, displayed professionalism, thorough knowledge of topic, and he answered all of my questions presented. His Associate to the firm, Amy Bender-Levy, is equally impressive. She also continuously progressed our objectives in the right direction. The case was an Interstate Custody Modification which was not easy of nature. There were many obstacles and headaches throughout the proceedings. For instance, written depositions of 74 questions presented by opposing counsel, dispelling child abuse allegations, etc. The other party found numerous methods of adding stress (e.g. fabrications) and strain both financially and to our emotional well-being. The custody process at times seemed to cast a shadow over our children's milestones that should have been relished. Nevertheless, the case never appeared daunting to the "A Team"; they relentlessly pressed forward. The opposing party had "unclean hands"; hence, a contempt of court was filed. This firm had a goal to seek out "the best interests of my children." This desire came to fruition. I am blessed with 2 children awakening me every morning with those all too common words, "What's for breakfast mom?" The end result of the well versed and VERY seasoned Mr. Marks.

I highly recommend Jonathan Marks as an attorney to represent you if a family law attorney is needed. Jonathan came highly recommended to me and I was not disappointed one bit.
Of course all attorney's handle multiple cases at one time, however with Jonathan he always made me feel I was his only - and most important client. This evident in his quick response time to me if needed as well as full knowledge of my particular situation.
In my situation my ex-spouse and I appeared to be far apart, and perhaps heading towards a trial - which with a family and children involved was not something I wanted to do. Jonathan was able to use his skills to negotiate what was a fair and acceptable solution to both parties, thus avoiding a trial.
Just as Jonathan was recommended to me, I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him to others.

Jonathan has represented me in a case of legal separation, and I highly recommend him and his firm to anyone seeking legal help in a family law matter. Jonathan discussed every aspect of my case with patience and consideration, addressing all my questions and educating me about the process. He took the time to understand my dynamics and family background. Most importantly, throughout this 1.5 year process, he has remained cognizant of the needs of my children and has worked towards achieving the goals while respecting my values. Jonathan is very meticulous in his work and has been very approachable with any questions or concerns related to the case throughout this process. He is honest and straightforward about what one can expect from a case and advocates his clients towards a meaningful outcome. While the family law matters are emotionally driven, he kept me focussed on the goals while keeping the playing field levelled. I have been very pleased with my experience with his law firm and would recommend Jonathan to anyone without any hesitation.

I hired Jonathan becausey ex-wife was refusing one of my scheduled visitation. At the time I lived in a different state then my child. During my divorce I had hired an attorney that was leaving her firm. I did not know about this at the time. All she wanted to do was get my case over with so she could start her new job. Neadless to say I ended up with a very bad aggrement. I spoke to Jonathan about my current agreement when I was discussing the visitation problem. Jonathan let me know it would be in my best interest to move back to Missouri so he could modify my agreement. Jonathan is a very honest and straight forward attorney. He told me what to expect and that is exactly what I got and more. My previous attorney said I was going to get all this stuff that never happened so I was very relieved with the outcome of my case. I would recommend Jonathan over any other attorney in St. Louis.

Jonathan outlined a strategy for my case and executed at every step in a long process. He is smart, strategic and relentless in the representation of his clients. His efforts directly resulted in a favorable outcome for my case with the end result of my maintenance being cut in half. He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him!

Jonathan represented me in a family case several years ago, and continues to represent me as matters evolve over time and need to be revisited. Given many cases are compounded by emotional-driven issues for clients, myself included, Jonathan remains very helpful in taking the time to educate me on what to expect through each step of the process, explaining my rights and keeping me centered on the desired outcome. Jonathan has always taken the time to swiftly answer my questions and counsel me on the most effective ways to address concerns I may have with other parties involved in the case, which I find to be one of the most valuable aspects of our working partnership. When navigating through what can feel like a legal battlefield at times, I remain comforted by the fact the Jonathan is only an email or phone call away. And as a side note, not only did I quickly figure out he was one of the best family attorneys around by working with him, but the attorney representing the other party in my case warned his client that they were up against the best - meaning Jonathan!

I can't say enough great things about Jonathan. I came into the office scared and unsure about the divorce process. Jonathan made me feel at ease and told me that I needed to worry about being a good mom and he would take care of the divorce. He did just that. He also made me feel like a priority. He always had my back and was looking out for my best interest. He treated me with respect and always went above and beyond what was required. He is an outstanding lawyer and person. I would highly recommend Jonathan!

I highly recommend Jonathan over any attorney in St. Louis. I did my research when finding The Marks Law Firm and Jonathan's reputation has superseded all his reviews. When choosing an attorney, you want someone who cares about what you're going through. Here recently, Jonathan actually called me back on a Sunday afternoon to discuss an alarming situation. The man has a way of seeing right through a case! He has helped me get custody of my daughter, looked over various contracts/wills and recently helped advise against polygraphs that were recommended by St. Louis detectives. He's made a huge impact on my family's quality of life! From Family law, criminal defense and looking over various contracts, justice has always prevailed! He will tell you, "It's not about winning or losing", but seriously the man is a flipping genius and doesn't lose. When choosing a lawyer you can count on, choose The Marks Law Firm!

I had an excellent experience working with Jonathan Marks and The Marks Law Firm. Jonathan was easy to work with and helped me keep my divorce expenses to a minimum. My outcome was outstanding.
Jonathan is extremely bright and knows the law. Clearly, he is respected by other attorneys. I would recommend him most highly to anyone seeking a top-flight family law attorney.
