Highly recommend this professional lawyer!
Mr. Gusman Jr truly made my experience with addressing a traffic ticket out of state much easier than I could have ever thought possible. While visiting New Orleans on vacation I had received a speedy ticket for exceeding the speed limit by 23 mph. I had reached out to several local attorneys in the area while I had already returned to my residence in the state of Florida. I had reached out to several attorneys but when reaching out to Mr. Gusman Jr not only did I receive a reply immediately, I also received professional advise in regards to my situation after he was patient enough to listen to my circumstances without interruption. Mr. Gusman Jr was not only well versed but he was fair in his pricing for representation. We had spoken maybe about 5 times throughout the process of execution which was mostly handle via email to handle the ticket and it resulted in a reduction to a non moving violation that would not effect me with points on my license. I highly recommend working with this gentlemen as I could not have asked for a better process and representation as he offered. He may only have a few years of experience as his original profile had explained, however I feel as though he is well ahead of his years with how he handled himself with process, professionalism , and his follow through to the very end. Do not miss an opportunity because of tenure he will address your situation and solve for a result that is just and fair! Thank you Mr. Gusman Jr. !!

Honest and Very Helpful
Althouh Mr. Gusman could not accept my case due to it being in another parish too far for him to travel. He was very helpful for preparing me for child custody hearing. I did not have a lawyer for that due to not having enough time, but I won domicile custody at this hearing. He was honest about the whole process and did not paint a pretty picture and give me just what I want to hear. Thank you Mr. Gusman for the help. I sure wish he could have represented me since this will be an ongoing issue for a while.

Honest, helpful and very responsive!
I had a traffic citation for speeding. When I contacted Marlin, he was honest, walked me through my options both with and without his representation. He answered all of my questions in a very timely and personable manner. In the end he was able to reduce the fine and the violation by a considerable amount. I'm just so happy! He's an excellent lawyer and person. Thanks again Marlin!

Child support reduction
Thanks to Gusman Law firm for working my child support case. He made sure all documents were in place to have strong supported argument with the case. He knows his stuff. He is the guy to represent you if there is a unresolved matter to you case. Give him a call. He is easy to work with. He is my lawyer for now on for any issues pertaining to the law.

Gusman was not my attorney but a family member. Mr. Gusman was very hard to reach. You would leave numerous messages by text, email and voice messages. It would take days for his return call. He was not a fighter for his client. My family was not a drug addict or alcoholic. He was recorded by his ex screaming at her and judge ruled in her favor. Gusman just rolled over I definitely would not recommend him for a custody battle.

Terrible lawyer
I hired Marlin to handle my divorce and it was the worst experience ever. I didn’t know I was officially divorced until approximately a month after I actually was and that was only because I requested an update via email. He took my case when he had a small caseload, but as he became busier and when the community property aspect of my case wasn’t as “easy” as we originally anticipated, he went MIA. He failed to follow up with me on so many levels until there came a point where I couldn’t proceed with him because my situation with Marlin was more stressful than the situation with my ex husband. Two years later, my community property is not settled as he only attempted to follow up with me to proceed after I filed a complaint with the board, at which time I was completely defeated and done. Maybe he has improved his professionalism and work ethic at this time, however, I was completely disappointed with his services and lack of communication with me. There were multiple emails and phone calls that went unanswered and it was honestly a horrific experience for me.
