    Attorney Marinaro came highly recommended by a family friend. He represented me through a challenging custody case. This was a very stressful time in our lives. Mike and his office staff were available to answer all of my questions and made me feel confident things would go in our favor. I was very pleased with the outcome. I have since recommended Michael Marinaro and Associates to many of my family members and friends.

    I have known Michael Marinaro professionally and socially for more than 20 years. As a psychologist, I have always respected him and appreciated the quality of work and dedication he devotes to his clients. I have followed his numerous not guilty verdicts that have been published in the local paper. Recently, Mr. Marinaro represented my son in a drug case. I was greatly impressed with his professionalism and steadfast focus on my son's case. My son served no jail time which was very unexpected.

    Mr. Marinaro is an outstanding lawyer. He is professional and put me and my family at ease during our difficult time. I was facing up state jail time for the crimes I committed. The evidence against me included a forced confession. Mr. Marinaro clearly explained the consequences I was facing. We entered into an open guilty plea where I was sentenced to ONLY PROBATION!!! My family and I are extremely grateful! His name was given to me by a friend. I'm glad I took his advice. I would recommend!!!!

    My case: contesting a traffic violation. Not only did their attorney miss a court date, but their office simply did not communicate nor pay attention to details. My name was botched on several documents, calendar dates were missed and mis-scheduled. Finally, the case didn't resolve well either. Now, 6 months later, I was notified from the court that my license will be suspended and I've been reported to a collections agency for delinquent payment because they never mailed me documents. Awful.
