"Working with Marta was the best decision we could have made. First and foremost, she delivered a successful outcome and turned a potentially messy process into an orderly one. Equally impressive, however, was the way she related to us as clients. Her straightforward, honest, but empathetic approach made it clear to us that we were in good hands."

"Marta is an AMAZING attorney. I have known
her for 25 years and think the world of her,
the way she handles difficult situations and her
ability to determine non-confrontational ways

negotiation - I would not want to be opposite her in the court room!"
