MAClaw (formerly Marguis-Aurbach) has been my lawyer for over 30 years. They have earned my trust and confidence in every instance. My needs have related to business matters, estates, trusts, and various matters requiring legal advice. I refer not only to my friend and attorney, Al Marquis, but also all the other professionals (and certainly including their staff) at the firm. All have served me well. I rate them 5 stars.

After years of multiple firms and many attorneys, I was very fortunate to meet Jack Juan of Marquis Aurbach. Jack introduced our company to Brian Hardy. We have worked directly with Brian for the past six-plus years. Jack has always been there whenever we need him. Take the best and leave the rest!
Commercial Litigation
We have had the distinct opportunity of working with this outstanding group of lawyers for over 4 years in which they handle a full spectrum of our legal needs. They are a diverse, talented and highly professional group of well respected attorneys who consistently deliver results for our Company. We have the opportunity to select from a wide range of "national" law firms to handle our matters for us but find that the personal service and vested interest in each and every one of our matters handled by MAC is what sets them apart. We could not recommend a higher caliber law firm than MAC for any commercial litigation needs.

Literally saved our business from an onslaught of Frivolous cases filed against our firm. There Motions and Substantiation of the facts lead the Federal Courts to award us a Monetary Judgment against the Attorney involved and has lead to his being banned from all Federal Court actions, including Bankruptcy filings. They are thorough, well documented and have proven to be a pinnacle of the legal profession. They are well worth their fees. In the end you get what you pay for.
