I don't think anyone enjoys having to deal with divorce, the process that is common to divorce, and the cost associated with it. The only good part of my divorce was having Marlo on my side. She knew exactly what was going on (my ex changed attorneys after a year so she had two different sets of attorneys for my 2 1/2 year ordeal) and that gave me the ability to focus on what I needed to do. We had regular strategy discussions as needed with the goal of resolving the case as effectively as possible. Marlo is only one side of the case, however, so the more difficult opposing counsel is, the more you need someone level headed and experienced like Marlo to get the job done fairly. In my experience a number of the divorce attorneys I saw were sharks or tall tale tellers. Marlo was professional, to the point and was also well known in the courtroom as well. (in a positive way) Whenever I asked any legal question, process questions, likely outcome questions at all she had the answer for me directly. She was able to share her experience and offer a most likely outcome so that I could decide if I should fight an issue or not based on her input. In the end, the settlement was essentially what we offered in the first place, it just took my ex that long to realize the promises she was being given by her attorneys were not realistic. My costs were also about 1/2 of hers. I would highly recommend Marlo to any unfortunate soul who is facing divorce. You will be well taken care of and represented. I wish I could say the process is fair and simple, but that just isn't the case so you need to have someone like Marlo on your side.

I would recommend Marlo any day. Not only did she fight for me, but she was very honest and upfront about what my expectations should be. She helped me with every facet of my divorce from the custody and child support, to the complicated dividing of assets and even a restraining order.

Marlo handled my divorce with skill, compassion, and wisdom. She peeled me off the ceiling regularly when things got difficult, and helped me make reasoned, rational decisions throughout the process. If Marlo agrees to handle your case, you will be well-served!

Marlo was incredibly helpful as she helped me through my divorce. She offered professional and solid advice, great resources and an empathetic ear as she help me through a very challenging experience. She offered support and ensured that my children and i were protected at the time of the divorce and for many years into the future. She not only supported my needs at the time of the divorce but has been as my side offering wise counsel for the past ten years. Marlo is honest, smart and knows what she is doing. I am forever grateful for everything she has done for me and my family.
