If you are looking for strong and fair representation from a knowledgeable attorney who can settle, mediate, or take a case to trial, Rob Marble is an excellent choice. Rob was able to guide me through the divorce process from filing to final settlement. Rob represented me in mediation and later in a collaborative divorce agreement. We were able to settle fairly and amicably without a trial, thanks to Rob. If a trial was needed, all parties knew Rob would be ready. This is the person to call.

Rob went above and beyond to help not only me but my children with my divorce case. The whole process was made easier and less stressful knowing that he was handling my case. He was able to work with my schedule and even did a lot of phone calls and emails with me knowing that was easier on all involved. Rob also made the process easy for my ex as he filled him in when he needed to be by contacting him personally.

Mr. Marble is an excellent attorney. I would strongly recommend you enlist his services for any of your legal needs. He is thorough, knowledgeable, fair, and extremely good at what he does. I retained him after the fact and definitely wish I had hired him on day one. I can't thank him enough for his help.

Rob was excellent! His even keeled temperament was just want I needed. He made me think realistically about my divorce. Guided me in negotiation that was fair for all. He thought about my kids, my home and most importantly about me!! He made sure I was well prepared with my mediation and financial affidavit. Thank you Rob for getting me thru this rough time in my life!!!
