Upon graduating from law school, Marcy has been zealously advocating for individuals in a broad range of Supreme Court, Family Court and Appellate Court cases. Marcy has significant trial experience, addressing both complex financial issues as well as difficult custody matters. Marcy understands and advocates that in many instances, resolving the complex issues which arise in family law cases out of court can be the best course of action for her clients, and therefore works hard with her clients, mediators and the necessary experts to find resolutions without litigation. She completed a rigorous divorce mediation training program and uses these skills regularly to achieve her client's goals. Marcy is equally capable of fighting tough legal battles and negotiating creative settlements. In all instances, she makes sure her clients remain calm and confident throughout the process.
