Marcus K. Turner 

Senior Associate Attorney

"Growing up in a family that had been touched by divorce allows me to empathize with my family law clients in a way that others may not be able to.

I was fortunate in that I was in an attorney household, so in addition to living through family law issues, I saw how best to handle them from the lawyer's side.
 

I have years of experience helping people through some extremely difficult divorce and custody situations. And I have dedicated my career to being the best family law attorney that I can possibly be."
