A Message From Senior Partner and Owner Tom Marks...

Every year I take the time to cast a vision for the year ahead, and while this may seem odd for a Family Law Firm, the vision I see for this year involves "planting seeds."

What I mean is, "What are we going to sow into the lives of other people?"

Are we going engage in encouraging and building up others, supporting good causes and pouring into the lives of family, friends and those we work with?

We have the opportunity to make a huge impact in the lives of others, and for us at The Marks Law Firm, we have the opportunity to help our clients navigate through the difficult family law process.

So, our team is committed to engaging in the community and impacting positively everyone we come into contact with. Thus we will be sowing seeds of "good works and good words" so that there may be a harvest.

How will you sow seeds in the year ahead? Make it a point to say a kind word or engage in an act of service and see how it positively impacts not only your life but the lives of others this year. 

Wishing you all the best this year and beyond,

Thomas D. Marks, Esq.

How do I Protect My Assets in a Divorce?

Divorce requires a division of assets acquired during the marriage, so you can’t keep every asset you own out of your spouse’s hands. Knowing that, is there any way to protect your assets in Divorce?

Obtain a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement between future spouses that sets forth the rights and obligations of each spouse upon divorce, death, and even during the marriage.
