When choosing an attorney, it is important for new and existing clients to make informed decisions. The law office of Colleen M. Markou values its clients and their opinions from their own, personal experiences. 

Perfect pick for us!

I personally used Colleen as a mediator for child custody with my son. Things went smoothly and we were able to stay out of court. I then referred my brother to her for a much more difficult custody case. His son's mom wasn't letting him see his son. Before court, Colleen was able to sit down with them and negotiate an agreement. 
She is great at her job, and very, very knowledgeable.

First Divorce and Highly Satisfied with the outcome thanks to Colleen 

Colleen is an upfront and honest attorney that takes her job seriously and professionally, while making you feel comfortable discussing uncomfortable situations and or circumstances. If you are looking for a "no bull" attorney that doesn't play games just to take more of your money, then I highly suggest Colleen.

Highly recommend, professional, compassionate.

Colleen has handled some estate work for me, and some divorce work for some friends and family. Without hesitation, I would recommend her again to anyone needing her services. It was very refreshing to be able to talk to her about some intense and personal issues. Colleen's professionalism made that so much easier.

Strong, intelligent

Attorney Colleen Markou assisted me through an amicable divorce with respect for the best interests of myself and my family. Since that time, I have sought her advice and counsel on numerous occasions over the last ten years and have always been impressed by her intelligent and thoughtful advice, as well as her experience and skill as both an advocate for her clients and as a mediator. Her ability to see all sides of a dispute and bring about a well-reasoned, thoughtful and mutually-beneficial resolution is superb. I would highly recommend Colleen M. Markou, and Colleen Markou Law, P.C. to anyone seeking a caring and dedicated advocate or a skilled mediator. She is one of the best.

More than happy

Colleen helped me in fighting for custody of my son when a previous lawyer told me we didn't have a case. She went above and beyond to make sure I had the time I deserved with my child. I couldn't be more pleased with what she has done for my family and would recommend her to anybody.

The Best Attorney

Attorney Markou has been there for me throughout numerous custody, parenting time issues, and child support changes. She is the only attorney that I will use because I believe that she cares about what is best for the kids. She is very supportive of the what is RIGHT! She always makes herself available and has had numerous wins with just my case alone. I HIGHLY recommend attorney Markou to anyone who feels they need advice and/or assistance with child support, parenting time arrangements, and custody. I only wish I knew of her when I filed for divorce in 2008. She's a GREAT attorney.

Professional and honest

Colleen Markou worked with me for a post-divorce alimony case. She was able to make me feel comfortable going back to court with an ex that had been abusive. She was also able to recover a large amount of back payments from him. She is very professional and honest in what she can and cannot do.  I was so pleased with her that I referred her to my daughter and would refer her to any of my friends or colleagues.

Colleen gets your job done!

After a complete lack of representation from my first attorney, I hired Colleen and she willingly picked up the reins. She worked continuously to rebuild the lack of trust I felt towards attorneys in general. She returned calls, e-mails, and responded to legal correspondence immediately. My case was settled in mediation within 6 months of hiring Colleen. She walked me through the process, gave good advice, gave me much needed support, and represented me to the BEST of her ability. I would recommend Colleen for ANY family law needs and I am happy to now call her my "friend." I am blessed to know that she will continue to represent me in my custody case as it evolves.

Colleen works for you!

Colleen is a go-getter! She was recommended to me by a good friend who got tired of listening to me complain about my previous attorney. From my consultation to today, I have been extremely happy with her services. Because of Colleen's expertise and her passion for helping people, she was able to get the appropriate parenting time for my daughters and me. Colleen has given me the confidence to go after what is right. I highly recommend her to fight for you and your family!

Child Custody Case—Amazing and Professional

I hired Colleen to take care of several matters for me. One was dealing with a collection dispute. The other was working with FOC to reestablish and review my current child support order. In both cases, I was very glad that I had Colleen on my side. She was professional and efficient. My cases were handled promptly, and I was kept informed of where I stood each step of the way. If I had any questions, either Colleen or her assistant were available to answer them.  Working through legal matters is never fun. However, Colleen made the process much easier than I had thought it was going to be. I would recommend Colleen to anyone who needs legal counsel. She's worth her weight in gold.

Extremely committed individual

Colleen is fantastic!

Colleen is an outstanding lawyer, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has to walk through the divorce process. She is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and very compassionate. More importantly, she is extremely honest and fair. Whenever I had questions, needed paperwork completed, or had to meet with her I knew that everything would be taken care of immediately. My ex has often said he wished he had hired Colleen before I did! :-)

Go with Colleen!

Colleen is a loyal, reliable down-to-earth, realistic lawyer. What I enjoy most about Colleen is her direct approach and her honesty to me about whether or not I'm being realistic. If you want a 'yes' lawyer don't go here, if you want honest advice, someone who will represent you, your family, the trust and with the upmost integrity - GO WITH HER! I HIGHLY recommend Colleen to anyone!

I Highly Recommend Colleen

I was recommended to seek the assistance of Colleen from another attorney whom I've known for many years. As you can imagine, going through visitation and custody disputes can be overwhelming, difficult and stressful times. At my initial consultation, through Colleens experience, knowledge, honestly, and compassion my concerns were addressed and my mind was put at ease. 

Since my initial consultation back in 2003, I've chosen to hire Colleen over the years because, unfortunately, raising kids with an "ex" can't always be a smooth and cooperative journey. I have been repeatedly pleased and satisfied with the results. On two particular occasions, I was in need of immediate action and Colleen did not disappoint. 

Over the years, Colleen has always been well prepared, tactical, and respectful in her approach. She genuinely cares for her client's best interest and will fight for fair and just results. Colleen has always and continues to exceed my expectations. 

I strongly recommend Colleen to anyone who is going through the unfortunate situation of custody/visitation disputes - such can be stressful times not only for you but family members and your children. Colleen has always looked out for the best interest of my kids and helped my family and I along the way.

Thank You

The lawyer to go to for family law - Honest, Trustworthy, Accessible and Aggressive in winning the case

When I had to fire my first lawyer for not having my best interests in my case I had zero faith in the legal system or a lawyer. I went to Colleen and she was like a breath of fresh air. She tells me the truth about my case and what I should do even when it's not what I want to hear. She is accessible when I call or she calls me back, instead of the last firm where all the advice I got was sent to me through the legal assistant. She bills me honestly and fairly for her time. She displays thorough knowledge of all areas of child custody/divorce. She is aggressive in the court room and does not back down to shady lawyers. One of the things I really liked about her is that she would try to resolve things before going to court when possible, instead of pushing for court to bill extra time like other lawyers do. My court case was a tough one with an ex who retained a shady lawyer and takes me to court constantly. Colleen has fought against them aggressively and saved me thousands of dollars by not allowing frivolous items to go to court. I have recommended Colleen to friends of mine because I believe she is the best lawyer in the area and they too have been happy with her representation.

Fantastic

Prior to picking a lawyer for my divorce, I had met with two other lawyers before meeting with Colleen Markou. During that first meeting, I knew that Colleen was the person that I wanted to represent me. We discussed the background of what lead up to the divorce and she was more interested in my concerns of child custody than going over fees (like the other two lawyers I met with did). It was because of her genuine concern for my best interests and willingness to listen to what I was saying that I hired Colleen that day.

Throughout the case, Colleen was respectful, prepared, and prompt especially when trying to get information and edits back from my ex-wife’s attorney. There was more than one occasion where things were stalled and Colleen always found a way to keep moving forward. Colleen did not allow things to drag out and pushed my ex-wife’s attorney for answers on issues that we were trying to resolve, especially around child custody. Colleen is a huge advocate of equal parenting time.

The one thing that stands out for me the most about Colleen is that she was personally involved with the case from beginning to end and did not rely on her assistant (who by the way is also excellent) to take notes and edit the documents. Colleen would sit in her office with me and my marked up draft documents and we would get them completed immediately. Colleen Markou is a fantastic lawyer and I highly recommend her to anyone that is unfortunate enough to have to go through a divorce.

After the divorce was final, I immediately hired Colleen to rework my “General Durable Power of Attorney”, “Living Will and Designation of Patient Advocate for Care, Custody, and Medical Treatment Decisions”, “Last Will and Testament”, and “Trust Agreement”. These were all finished within a short period of time with the same integrity that Colleen consistently demonstrated during my divorce case.
