Marshall Jacobini is a Litigating God-Send to a Tough Legal System!
When you get dragged into a family law case, I promise you that it is going to be one of the most stressful and devastating times of your life. You will be emotionally drained, financially drained, and mentally drained the entire time you endure your case. Coming from someone who was dragged into a custody battle, please heed the following advice: FIND YOURSELF A FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY WHO IS A STRONG LITIGATOR. You may be tempted to hire your next attorney based off of their firm’s advertisements. I’m sure you have seen the firms that advertise they are the “the father’s rights firm,” or they “exclusively practice family law.” As reassuring as these marketing claims may sound, their extensive knowledge of the law should not be the selling point for you. It needs to be their extensive knowledge of the law AND LITIGATION that convinces you to pull out your wallet and retain them. There are a lot of family law attorneys who know the law, but they are NOT strong litigators. Trust me because I had to pay for TWO lawyers who fell into this category and I was getting beat up without mercy in court. I literally had a meltdown because I was getting beat up in court so much with one of the other attorneys that I genuinely felt like I was going to lose my child. I finally got wise, dumped my previous attorney, and hired my next lawyer from Justice Law Firm. Anyone can know how the rules of a particular game work on paper, but that doesn’t mean that they know how to move and work their opponent on the court. A LITIGATING attorney knows how the rules work on paper, but more importantly, they know how to move and work your opponent (opposing party) on the court. You need a strong litigator because the family court is a place where lies abound. Expect everyone to lie about everything and if you have a strong, litigating attorney, he or she is going to easily expose just how much the opposing party is lying. Had I not retained Justice Law Firm, a boutique family law firm with LITIGATING attorneys, most of the lies that the opposing party was trying to tell would have made into the court room and I could have potentially paid three times as much money fighting in court as I did. My particular attorney, Marshall Jacobini, is a very strong litigator! In court, Marshall shut down the opposing party’s lies all throughout her testimony and during cross-examination. His litigation style is structured, calm, collected, and focused, but irritatingly persistent. This litigation style made the opposing party reveal her aggressive, combative, and manipulative nature in front of the judge. Marshall Jacobini is a very perceptive strategist. He is a lethal combination for the opposing party because of his legal knowledge, litigation style, and his candidness in telling you (his client) the truth about your shortcomings and strengths. He does a great job at communicating with you and framing your expectations in court so you can come out of this war with the least amount of damage and scarring as possible. He knows how to read a court room and work his legal arguments accordingly to strategically give you the best possible outcome given your particular circumstance. More impressively, he came in and cleaned up in 3 days what my former attorney from another prestigious law firm in the area had messed up for five months. He caught a number of errors in my suit that my former attorney had overlooked. The result was that Marshall got my case dismissed. Marshall Jacobini, Tracey Justice, and the rest of the staff at Justice Law Firm stopped the bleeding for me. They stopped the mental, emotional, and financial bleeding. For that, I will forever be their biggest advocates. You can and should trust this team with the future of your family because I assure you, they will fight for you like you are a part of theirs!

Best experience with a lawyer ever!
I was in serious need of new counsel after my very unreliable lawyer withdrew from my case right before final trial. Mr. Jacobini took the time to guide me through the process to handle the situation as best I could literally days before my final custody hearing. I can't express how helpful he was in informing me of my options and steps required to take action and calm my fears, all this just during an extended consultation. In a sea of sharks here is a solid stand up reliable fella who will have your back and truly represent your best interests and if my motion for continuance goes through in court you can bet I'm going to try like hell to hire him.

Excellent Lawyer!!!!
He was excellent. Mr. Jacobini went above and beyond what I requested of him. He did a lot of research, spoke with me in a manner where I understood what he was saying instead of using a lot of law jargon. He was very helpful and I would give his name out to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances.

Great lawyer
We had a great experience using marshal. He made us very comfortable with the process and he didn't feel like a business meeting each time we talked it was more personal which made me feel better about everything. We had a stressful situation we were going through but each time we spoke with marshal we felt so much better about our case. I want to thank marshal for helping me and my family.

Marshall has done the best work and given some of the best advice on my life. He has made a world of a positive difference in my life. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Job
Marshall did an amazing job! He put me at ease right away during the initial divorce meeting(which for me was extremely difficult for me to get through). He was very thorough attentive and professional through the entire process. He is an excellent attorney and got me far more than I ever could have imagined. I now have full custody of my 2 girls, child support, and a final decree with the teeth needed to protect my babies. It was a pleasure to work with this kind, compasitionate , and dedicated young man. You would be well served to enlist Marshall's service
