  • To answer your questions and give you accurate information and counsel.
  • To accomplish your legal goals as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
  • To resolve your legal problems by negotiation and agreement when possible, but litigate fully when necessary.
  • To always meet the highest standards of honesty and integrity, and to earn and keep your confidence and trust.
Our approach is personal, informative and confidential. At MARKS – Elder Law, we assist you in safeguarding the present and the future for yourself and your family. For over 30 years we’ve been helping families make good decisions.


Fees are always quoted in advance.

Generally, you never owe a fee until after we’ve agreed on one. Your fee reflects the time we spend working for you; the difficulty of your case; the value to you; the scale and scope of the matter; and the risk involved.

  • A Fixed Fee is charged for preparation of standard documents, such as Deeds and Wills. and for all other cases expected to follow a predictable course, including Elder Law Planning, Estate Administration, etc.
  • An Hourly Fee is charged when we are paid for the time spent working for you, by itemized time records.
  • Generally, we do not charge a Contingent Fee.

Thank you for doing a great job on the estate. You are a true professional.

Maggie M.


Thank you so much for your hard work on my husband's estate. I did receive the funds form (the bank) after one week after you filed the Court Order. You and your staff have made the experience very educational and easier than I expected.
