Many people hire a divorce attorney to protect them from the "other side." In my case, the best reason why I hired Marjorie is because she protected me from myself. I was extremely hurt and all I wanted to do was "get this over with." Marjorie was mindful of this and never strayed from her intention of getting me the best settlement that I deserved. After diligent work, enormous patience and accurately assessing my situation, I am financially secure. She helped guide me through the grueling, emotional process with grace and strength. Definitely hire Marjorie if you want professionalism and someone who will stand up for what is rightfully yours.

Being a novice at divorce, I struggled with a young inexperienced attorney (who churned up the costs) and an antagonistic attorney (who used my divorce as a forum carry out her dysfunctionality) before discovering Marjorie. Her focus and strategy aligned with my goals of custody and financial protection. Marjorie approach is honest and matter-of-fact. She provided excellent advice and guided me such that the end result was toward a healthy co-parenting relationship. She kept the discussions child focused and set realistic goals. Marjorie provided me with necessary tools to accomplish a successful outcome. Marjorie explained the pros and cons of certain approaches and valued my input. She guided me toward mediation, educated me as necessary and helped to keep costs down. Her support staff is efficient and accomplished. My children and I are lucky to have her and her group in our corner. They are smart, honest, and have integrity. I have highly recommended her to my friends and acquaintances who have to endure this struggle. Thanks Marjorie and staff, I appreciate all the hard work and dedication.
