Marc Wolfe is the finest criminal defense attorney I have encountered in my 28 plus years of practrice. He is an expert trial attorney who not only knows how to defend a client aggresively, but also has a wonderful human side which lends itself to empathizing with his clients. If you are seeking an experienced, aggessive and caring attorney, I would recommend Marc Wolfe without reservation or qualification.
Natalie helped me throughout my divorce process. She took the time to explain my situation, the 'pro's and con's', course of action, and after actions of the divorce. She was easy to communicate with via email and scheduled phone times. Natalie is very knowledgeable in her field of expertise. She made my divorce process much easier to go through. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Mr. Wolfe helped me with a very difficult post-judgment divorce matter. I had been told that it looked pretty bad for me. But Mr. Wolfe saw things differently. He saw the "big picture" and came up with solutions that made sense and helped me and my children keep our home. Due to his experience, knowledge of the law, and strategic abilities, I highly recommend Mr. Wolfe.
I highly endorse Mr. Wolfe. Very knowledgeable and caring attorney who gets great results in representing clients. Keep up a great work!
