Client
Marshal helped me with a very complicated divorce involving multiple homes, a very large business, and my two small children. He was kind, compassionate, tough and ruthless when necessary. Marshal is extremely smart and I would recommend him for the most complicated divorce situation to the simplest divorce situation. He can do it all. He is still a friend today and one of the best lawyers I know. Looking back on how complicated my situation was I really appreciate him even more.

Absolutely the best!
I engaged Marshal Spector as my attorney to represent my interests in post-divorce conflicts regarding child support and custodial issues. He was in every way responsive to my concerns: a thoughtful listener, a wise advisor, and a trusted counsel during difficult times. I especially appreciated his focus on mediating, as opposed to litigating, ongoing contentions, and believe his method of gently yet authoritatively interacting with opposing counsel/client would be of significant benefit to anyone who finds s/he cannot adequately speak for him or herself. Beyond that, Marshal is a generous man who treats his clients with the respect and graciousness that is often absent in the world of divorce. I cannot possibly recommend him more highly, and I will be forever grateful for his service to me.
