Testimonials

What Our Clients Say

I really appreciated Marcus' approach to my file. He was always the voice of reason and I believe that his sound and timely advice led to the best possible outcome for me. I appreciated his ability to cut through the nonsense and focus on the important issues while having empathy for the whole family. It was clear that he had my family's best interest at heart.

Going to court to fight to be with your family is one the most difficult experiences you can go through. Kristin McDonald helped me navigate all of it from start to finish. She took the time to understand my personal situation and helped me chart a path forward. I truly cannot say enough to express how grateful I am that she was my lawyer.
