In December of 2012, I found myself having to fight for the custody of my two children. I looked around for the right lawyer and decided on Marilyn Moreno and her staff to handle my case. From the start they were very competent, knowledgeable and professional. My case quickly became complicated when some disturbing allegations surfaced having to do with my children's mother. Marilyn Moreno and her staff acted swiftly and knew exactly how to handle it. I really felt that they gave my case the priority it needed and they made a very happy customer out of me.
I now have custody of my two beautiful children and I thank the Moreno Family Law Firm for all they did. I am glad that I had them standing with me and giving me the right advice. They were more than instrumental in this nightmarish journey and I believe they were truly God sent.
If you are looking for a good, competent and effective lawyer, I highly recommend the Moreno Family Law Firm.

I hired Marilyn Moreno about two months ago to help me get a modification of an old order. Even though we have not had our day in court yet, she and her staff (Virginia and Cary) have been amazing to work with. I knew from the first minute I met her that she was the right attorney for me. She is personable and smart as a whip. I have no doubt that she will be incredible in court. Thank you to the Moreno Family Law firm for making this sickening process bearable.

It doesn't surprise me a bit that Marilyn Moreno gets a 5 from some reviewers, a 1 from others, and nothing in between. She is a superb advocate for you if you are fighting a difficult case and are willing to pay for the best representation. She's probably the wrong choice if your case is relatively simple and you're looking for a "cheapie".
I hired Marilyn after firing my first divorce lawyer. He was doing what he did, which was trying to mediate to a settlement, but my ex-wife was unwilling to agree to anything and, since I was flexible, I was getting the short end of the stick. Marilyn took a big retainer and got working for me. We took multiple depositions, had a vocational assessment made on my ex-wife, did a bunch of discovery, and fought it out, ending up in a mammoth 7-hour pretrial hearing reaching a settlement that was way better for me than the terms of the best offer I had made with my previous attorney.
Some months later my ex-wife attempted a set-aside, and Marilyn successfully represented me there as well. And something else: although it was difficult and expensive to reach, the settlement was very fair. Marilyn is a very decent and caring person, as well as an aggressive litigator. Hire her is you want the best.
