Practice Areas

As a full service law firm, Marsh Law Office practices in most areas of the law. In some instances, we collaborate with other professionals who have particular expertise in the issues raised by a specific case.

Below is an overview of the primary areas of law in which we practice. In each area, we offer consultation and counseling, document preparation and filing, negotiation, mediation, litigation, and initiating or defending appeals. Our practice is not limited to these areas, however; please contact us to ask about your particular legal issue and how we can help. We have provided links with more detail on our work in the areas of family law, and estate planning and probate matters
