    Having been separated numerous years, with multiple pieces of real property, many issues had become clouded. Four attorneys declined the case or required exorbitant retainers. Ms.Zide accepted the case with minimal retainer, reasonable overall costs & creating a settlement package that gave each of us what was most important to us. I know I received at least a fair division. My text msg's, emails and calls were usually returned within minutes & always promptly. Couldn't have done it without her.

    Ms. Zide was very helpful and supportive during my Separation process. She was very patient with the multiple revisions to my agreement. Her professionalism and knowledge were outstanding. She responded to my questions in a very quick and complete manner and provided me a variety of options to best meet my needs and the needs of my children. In addition, I believe that I received a bargain for the expertise that was provided. I could highly recommend Ms. Zide to anyone needing assistance.

    Marla has helped me on a very difficult case that had several issues that were intertwined with each other. She kept me well informed through the whole process and made every effort to keep as much stress as possible of "my plate". Even now after the Divorce, she is devoting her time to ensure that all is continuing to go well. I don't know what i would of done without her!! Michele David
