Marilee went above and beyond in handling my case, I feel she treated me with the utmost respect and communicated with me regularly and promptly with updates daily, The insurance company representing the person who damaged my property and caused my injuries was very fly by night and I honestly did not think that we would have gotten the results that we did, Great lawyer, will tell others

Marilee supported me continuously over the course of a twelve month divorce. She kept me on track to gather the necessary data need, even though I tended to procrastinate because this at times this was unpleasant. Her organizational skills and documentation of case data was outstanding. In various depositions, mediation etc. she outshined my ex wife's very highly paid San Attorney. In fact, her attorney ask Marilee for documentation in both the mediation and deposition because he was not prepared. She understands the costs involved and uses e-mail and text messaging when at all possible to keep costs down. She cares about her clients more than getting out to the golf course. Highly recommend Marilee!!!!

I had no idea what to expect going through a divorce, but Marilee and her team helped me get through this terrible time. They were on top of my case and made sure my ex was held accountable for his lieing and cheating in our marriage. They never backed down and we ended up in a Judge trial, after trying to mediate with no Luck, and I was very impressed with their in depth knowledge of my case and being able to catch my ex in multiple lies on the witness stand. I highly recommend Marilee and her firm!

She has assisted my with my divorce back in 2010. Everything that I requested I practically got with some few exceptions which she explained why through the case.
Now in 2014 I have requested her knowledgeable assistance with my child custody case, and again great help that she has been. She continues to expands her knowledge day by day and never gives up. She is straight down to the point and gets things done without eating time.
I will continue to use her as much as I need a smart and truthful lawyer.

I would recommended Marilee to anyone who needed a good attorney. She made my divorce go a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.

Marilee and her staff were very responsive to my needs and as a new client, she was able to react to an issue although her calendar was packed. She brought the situation to full resolution within a matter of 5 days. This is unheard of at many of the other legal firms. Marilee did an impeccable job!

I believe Marilee is an exceptional lawyer and negotiator. I hired Marilee late in the process of my divorce and I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Despite all the evidence and documentation I had on hand, I had a mediator who wanted to believe my wife's untrue story and statements. Marilee made sure the mediator and my wife understood the consequences of her actions and the probable outcome if we didn't reach a settle and went to court. I have worked with other lawyers in business and in a previous divorce. I have never been as satisfied with the outcome as I have been with Marilee's representation.

Marilee Brown exemplifies excellence. She is responsive, intelligent, and honest. In my case, she accomplished what she said that she would do in a timely manner.

Marilee is a very quick witted, intelligent lawyer. If you have a case that needs a lawyer that won't hold any punches then this is the firm to call. Marilee and her office are always professional and direct, which is a huge benefit to someone that is very busy like myself.
Our case has a long road, but every step has been carefully defended and attacked when needed. My family is very lucky to have this firm in our corner.

A few years ago I received a very retaliatory property tax appraisal on my home from the Appraisal District. They were taxing my home at almost 8x its real value, and it seemed they were doing this 1. because they thought they could get away with it and 2. because I exercised my right to not let them onto my property or into my home and this upset them for some reason. I guess they felt they needed to put me in my place.
They basically said if I wanted a fair appraisal I would have to let them into my home, but at the same time they said the law does not require me to let them into my home to receive a fair appraisal.
I complained to the top dog of the Appraisal District after getting railroaded at the Appraisal Review Board Hearing, and the gist of his response was that I could either let them into my home or take them to District Court.
So...I tried to take them to District Court but they surrendered to Marilee before we ever got there!
Sure, they bluffed for a while but it did not take long for them to realize it was hopeless and they gave me the appraisal we thought was appropriate. This reduced my taxes from over $5000 to less than $1000. It was huge. And if I had just given up, I would have paid about $20,000 in excess taxes since then and it would have only gone up from there.
Moreover, while the people at the Appraisal District and on the Appraisal Review Board treated me with such an offensive, dismissive attitude at the hearing, their attitudes changed dramatically and immediately once they saw Marilee was in my corner. Marilee put them firmly back into their place and they've stayed there to this day.
