"Marcel offers the BEST service and the BEST price. My divorce was a paperwork nightmare, neither myself nor my Ex had anything in order, let alone having any idea how, where or who was to file what. My Ex and I rescheduled and changed gears on Marcel several times, in between thanksgiving, Xmas & new years all the way up to 12 hours before we went to court. Marcel never missed an appointment, phone call or single detail in the FAST FAST FAST finalizing of my divorce... And he had a smile and a hand shake every time we met."
"Marcel and his staff were very professional and courteous when I was seeking help with a child custody case that has been extremely stressful.
I had went through high priced lawyers before that didn't listen to me or were telling me what I should do.
At a very reasonable rate I got into mediation and had a court date so I could plea my own case to the judge. I was 100% satisfied with my experience with this company. I highly recommend them as being fast, easy to deal with, and very professional."
