Subject: Sharing My Child Custody Experience
I must admit, when I first saw Marilyn’s yellow page ad, I didn’t know if her practice truly
provided this much hope and empowerment, or if it was simply playing off the desperation
of fathers. After my interview, however, I realized that Marilyn and her firm were indeed, well
qualified for representation. I literally stopped my attorney interview process right then.
My divorce and custody case was very complex and hampered with malicious
accusations. Systematically, though, I prevailed in almost every single aspect up for decision
including custody. Moreover, I additionally attained attorney fee awards. Marilyn’s
representation was paramount in these decisions and I owe it to her firm’s approach of not
just basing their practice off the law, but also off of a conviction of principle, and other
intrinsic standards that help guide a zealous representation to a respectable conclusion.
Another concern put to rest, was how Marilyn’s representation was able to repeatedly
overcome whatever surfaced from a stereotypical “shark” attorney serving as opposing
counsel. Marilyn has always taken the “high-road” approach without compromising my
interests, rights, or what simply made sense. Family Court would be a much better place if
there were more attorneys involved in this system representative of her standards and
I have always been proud and honored to be represented by Marilyn. I will always be in
awe of Marilyn and her firm’s ability, integrity and intelligence. Additionally, I will always be
indebted to Marilyn’s representation, patience, humor, and especially… her unwavering belief
in me as a person and a father.
