What our clients are saying about The Markou Team

If you need a lawyer, Colleen is the way to go!  I didn't want to get a divorce, but when faced with it, I knew I needed a good attorney. Colleen and her staff were friendly and honest. They understood it wasn't an easy thing to do and gave fair counsel and answered questions as they came up. I never had to worry about them getting things done. They had my best interest in mind and fought for me and my kids. I wouldn't hesitate to refer others to Colleen, she did a great job with an ugly situation.

Helped me during a very hard and emotional time

I had Colleen over 10 years ago and happen to run into her recently. She helped me during a very hard and emotional time, going through a divorce is never an easy thing. She was kind and strong and listened to what I wanted. I have been happily divorced ever since!

Colleen is an amazing lawyer

Colleen is an amazing lawyer and if it wasn't for her help I would have never gotten to meet my son let alone get my son back when his mother and grandmother ran off with him. She has gone so far above and beyond to make sure my rights aren't stepped on and to help me make sure my son gets to know his father. I can say that any father that needs legal help for custody or FOC matters there simply is not a better option.

Colleen was a professional from start to finish

It's no surprise that divorce followed custody conflicts can be difficult. My case was typical, but extremely conflicted. Colleen was a professional from start to finish; I was lucky to have her representing me. Colleen understood my needs as well as what was best for my child. She is detail oriented and always quick to respond when I had questions or concerns. I never felt like just another client. She takes great pride in doing what is best for the kids..

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.

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

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.

We love Alicia!

Alicia Storm went above and beyond with our case, we had our consultation with her and she took notes and contact case workers and other lawyers. She was on time to every court hearing, she listened to what we had to say and believe and agreed our case. She was behind us in every step! We love Alicia!

Keeps me informed and takes action promptly

I first consulted with Alicia regarding divorce proceedings and decided to hire her and another attorney to represent me through those proceedings. Alicia has always been quick to answer any questions I have. I have absolute confidence in her ability as an attorney. The proceedings are still ongoing, so there isn't much detail right now, but I have already been able to tell that Alicia is not only empathetic, but she is absolutely an advocate for me.

Love Alicia Storm!!

Alicia Storm goes above and beyond when she is your lawyer. I felt like I was venting to a friend who could help us through are terrible time. She really cared about us and that's a rare quality in a lawyer these days. She is an amazing lawyer and anyone who retains her is lucky to have this fire cracker, she is smart. She knows what she is doing and she truly cares about her clients!! I have already been recommending her to grow d's and family and will continue to do so.
