When I began my case, I had a different attorney, who would never return my messages and never gave me an idea what was going on with my case. I got fed up and went with Marck Joseph and it was such a great difference. He kept me updated, worked on my case and resolved my case. He was honest and thorough. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.
Marck Joseph is an honest lawyer and he did not miss a beat. He answered my calls & e-mails in a very timely manner & he kept me in the loop with all going on regarding my case. He is also extremely compassionate. He helped me get the best outcome possible without dragging it on. Highly recommend.
My ex-wife would say or do anything in court to make sure my time with our children would be very limited and even supervised when I did get to see them. At times my emotions would get the best of me and I would project these feelings onto my attorney for relief. Marck always remained calm and kept me informed about my case.... I would highly recommend Marck Joseph. I am sure you will not be disappointed with his efforts and integrity in your case. You can thank me later!
Excellent work ethics and was quick and to the point. Everything worked out as he explained it and was done in a very efficient manner. Very professional and reassuring in the case process I felt very comfortable and happy with his work!
I was very impressed with Attorney Joseph throughout the entire process he was empathetic to my needs and made an extra effort to make sure I was informed every step of the way. His professional demeanor put me at ease. He was able to settle the case very fast and I was pleased with the amount.... I recommend him to everyone I come in contact with who mention that they are looking for an attorney. He will be my family attorney for years to come.
I consulted with Mr. Joseph regarding a potential child support case. Although I did not go forward with it (because I reconciled with my child's mother) he really helped me understand the way the law works and how it can affect me. If I ever needed legal help I would go back to him.
Marck K. Joseph, Esq. is a phenomenal attorney with a deep passion for law. His expertise in Family Law made my case facile and swift. I would highly recommend him for any Personal Injury, Criminal, Family, Real Estate or Business cases... He is the man for justice!
I retained him for help with a contested divorce and paternity issues on two separate cases, it was the best decision to retain him. He handled things with the up most professionalism and absolute understanding of the law. I was very confident in his ability to get me the desired outcome, but also knew I had someone to protect me, my rights and fight for me. He is always available and he sure does have all the patience in the world to explain what you don't understand.
