Marlo helped me to end my alimony 20 months early. I wanted to pay my spouse a lump sum, and keep my tax deductions per annum. Marlo, researched tax consequences (which is above and beyond her scope) and really made this fast & easy.

Marlo is a great attorney who specialized in family law. She is very professional, efficient, and result oriented. No matter you need simply a couple of sessions of legal consultation or to retain someone to solve your case, she is the one to go! I have done both and all I can say is that I am definitely happy for the work and result I paid for.

Marlo was my consulting attorney during my divorce process. She was excellent at supporting all my needs. Extremely professional, perfect attention to detail, worked timely under tight deadlines and most importantly she always had my best interests in mind. I highly recommend her and her firm.

Marlo and her team were very helpful in my situation. It was complicated, involving businesses, personal and shared assets. They helped me navigate this new territory with expertise and experience that I was very grateful for.

After a difficult and protracted divorce and having had to change representation three times, I happened to hear Marlo speak on the subject of Late Divorce at a Bar Association meeting. She made such a knowledgeable and important presentation on "my" experience, I sought her counsel when I was served with another in a series post-divorce actions brought against me to erode the terms of my original Judgement of Divorce, as well as my will and my finances. Marlo was smart and strong, while being attentive and respectful to my voice. The truth is, none of my other attorneys educated me or heard me the way Marlo did. With absolute integrity, she got to the grit of my needs; she quickly, and efficiently stood strong against opposing counsel; and she brought a total and complete resolution to my seemingly never-ending embroilment in post-divorce grief. Her office is convenient and inviting. Her staff is attentive, personable and smart. But, most importantly, Marlo freed me. I cannot begin to properly express my admiration, respect and gratitude for her ability. . Had I known "then" what I know now, she should have and would have been with me when all of this started. She is an excellent attorney!

Marlo was hired just prior to the case going to court. Despite significant obsticles she quickly assumed an understanding of the complexities of the case and lead the effort to a successful conclusion. An outstanding effort on the part of her and her staff.

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.

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.

As many others before me and unfortunately more being added as we speak, getting divorced was a life changing experience for me. Marlo is a straight shooter, methodical, honest, proficient with the law, and effective communicator. I am sure I forget some additional important traits that I probably forget. Marlo and her staff use latest technology, turn around things efficiently, and represent your rights to achieve best arrangement. We obtained great custody and child support settlement, and now, 10 years later, I will be using Marlo to modify the terms and further reduce my child support.
Bottom line - highly recommended!

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.
