Brigitte Bell, Family Attorney on Jan 31
Relationship: Worked together on matter

Marcia and I have known each other for many years. We first worked together on a custody case involving a “father-hungry boy” who’d been brought to Illinois by his mother. We won the case that allowed him to return to Arizona to be with his dad, and then ended up litigating his two sisters’ requests to be allowed to do the same. We’ve worked together on other cases and frequently refer to each other, she to me when her client needs a mediator and me to her when my client needs a litigator ready to go to trial. When handing off clients to another professional, it’s particularly comforting to know that they will be in good hands and will actually get the kind of representation that they need. With Marcia, I always trust that.
