Best Attorney!!
I can’t say enough about how wonderful Core Law group is from each and every person on the team. I was blessed to have Simon Budwhani and Marissa Oxman as my legal counsel. They are a fantastic team and did wonders for my case. My divorce took nearly 5 years from start to finish. In the infancy stages of my case, I had a couple of different attorneys represent me prior to Simon and Marissa. I found Simon through a friend who had wonderful things to say about his work ethic and experience. Simon far exceeded that expectation in which Inhad hoped to receive. Simon decoded to team up worn Marissa on my case however, Marissa spent the majority of the time working the day to day of my case. She was forced to deal with a very challenging opposing counsel that my ex-husband had retained. Despite the challenging attorney and a difficult case in general, Simon and Marissa got me sole legal custody, an out of state move away and they settled my case when tensions were high and emotions were higher. Their team effort were proven in court and I can say they were leaps and bounds better then opposing counsel. They always acted in an extremely professional manner and it came by them naturally. The trial prep performed by the Core Law team was phenomenal! More importantly, they were detailed and thorough not just during trial but for the entire 3 years I’ve retained them as my counsel. I witnessed many attorneys through the life of my case and it amazes me how many show up unprepared or lacking experience. Don’t waste your time or money going anywhere else. You’re money will be well spent on a class act team of legal counsel at Core Law, I can promise you that!

Wish I had hired Marissa and her firm to begin with.
I was referred to Marissa in regards to my divorce trial when i was having second thoughts about my own attorney. I ended up hiring her firm to consult and give a second opinion as to whether i should fire my previous attorney and risk having the trial delayed for six months. Marissa was kind enough to tell me that I should not hire her firm for the trial because there was not enough time for her to prepare for trial. She also looked over paperwork my attorney had filed and explained that even though he was not the best at communicating he was filing what was needed. I appreciated the honesty.

Really Helpful lawyer.
If you are reading this then you like me are facing the daunting task of choosing a divorce attorney. You are probably scared about your future and also worried you are going to get ripped off by a lawyer. Take a deep breath and just set up an appointment with Marissa. I did and never looked back. She is a partner but her rates were affordabl. She also has a good team. They worked with me and created a strategy, got as much evidence as possible and most importantly personally met with me, prepared me and kept me informed. That is how I knew she was the one to hire. Most of the others just wanted to deal by phone. Marissa met with me face to face and actually took the time to learn about my case. Then we met every time there was a court date so I was informed and prepped.
