"I was hit with an unexpected lawsuit that threw me into a state of panic over the future of my financial well-being. I didn't understand the attorney jargon, which terrified me even more. Marsha Russo not only heard my fears but actually listened. It wasn't just her expertise in this field, but her empathy towards me and my dilemma that helped me work through the lawsuit. She took the time to explain in layman's terms what the lawsuit was about and what we needed to do to win. Understanding the strengths and weakness of my case helped ease my stress and anxiety through each phase of the process. Marsha does her homework and is quite skilled in the discernment department. She often knew what my next question would be, even if I couldn't quite articulate it myself. Marsha's name comes first to mind when a friend speaks of needing an attorney."
