What Our Clients Are Saying

Before I stumbled into Attorney Markowicz’s number, I had already spoken to 3 lawyers. After speaking with him for the first time I felt at home due to his sound knowledge of his work. He was able to educate me on the nature of the case and things to do in order to win the case. He was clear, forthcoming, respectively, and very sincere. We won the case. We are very grateful to him. I will use him again and again and again if the need arises.

I honestly loved working with Jeffrey. If you want a lawyer who’s honest, attentive, caring, and willing to fight for you, he’s that man. He worked with me and my schedule that had all types of crazy hours. I was going through a custody battle. He help me fight for my baby and helped me understand every angle of the law on what I could or could not do. To being a mediator between people whom shouldn’t have been involved but was. Awesome just awesome. Thank you Jeffrey!

Cianda Porter

Aggressive and extremely prepared attorney. Jeffrey Markowicz is an extremely competent and aggressive attorney who cares deeply about his clients. He was extremely easy to reach by phone and always took time to answer all of my questions so that I was knowledgeable about my case.


Aggressive, But Civil It was always evident that Jeffrey meticulously prepared for each and every court appearance wherein he represented me. He has mastered the balance of being zealous and effective, while still displaying kindness and civility. While I hope I won’t need an attorney again, Jeffrey will be my first choice if I do.


Best Advocate. Jeff provided the type of advocacy and legal work any client would need who faces an uphill and sometimes biased family court system. He accurately and legally voiced my rights as a father. He’s aggressive, savvy and knowledgeable of the laws for New York, District of Columbia and Maryland. With the assistance of another attorney, Jeff successfully represented me in Virginia.


Matters that Matter Received wise legal counsel from attorney J. Markowicz. A lawyer who serves his clients with the utmost integrity and knows how to effectively navigate all aspects of the legal terrain. Mission accomplished! I won my divorce case. I highly recommend attorney Jeffrey Markowicz for family law matters as well as consultation on other legal matters.


Winning!! In the court of law winning is everything. His ability to prepare and inform me about the details of my case was masterful. He was able to address all the complicated legal issues surrounding my case in a clear and concise manner without using “over the top attorney jargon.” This, I might add took a lot of patience, a calm temperament, along with a vast knowledge of the law. I left his consultations very confident and informed. Mr. Markowicz persona and communication skills in the court room further cemented my belief I made the right decision. I WON my case!!

Mike B.

The best! Jeff represented me in a custody and child support modification battle for the last year. He was passionate, knowledgeable and fought for me even when I wanted to give up. He did not let me give up and his passion really showed in the court room. Thank you SO MUCH Jeff for being with me every step of the way and helping me win! You are truly the best!


Competent, Aggressive, Passionate, Ethical Advocate Mr. Markowicz has successfully, confidently, and aggressively defended me in a relocation case in MD in 2018. It was evident to me that he committed himself to my case not only for his own reputation but also to stand up for what he believed to be right. During our court appearances he was always well prepared, knowledgeable of the family law, and passionate about fighting for my rights as a father.


Makes Impossible, Possible!!! I am still so very grateful for Jeffrey Markowicz. Outstanding, and amazing would be an understatement. He helped me not to just roll over, just to keep the peace. He helped shore me up and fought for my children and I to be safe. Thanks to him the children and I have a home to live in even with the tricky circumstances I was in. (One of the impossible parts) He helped me to gain confidence and was very understanding with my lack of tech skills when sending paperwork. I would highly recommend Jeffrey for your case, he will not let you down.


Brilliant Attorney !Mr. Markowicz is not only a brilliant attorney, he’s thorough and he’s very compassionate and he cares very much about his clients.
In my darkest hour, Mr. Markowicz assured me that everything would be okay and to just put my trust in him. He answered each and every one of my questions whether it was on a Monday or on a Saturday. He is truly one of a kind. I could go on and on about him.
Needless to say, I won my case.


Second to None!!! Jeffrey Markowicz is more than an exceptional attorney. He is a hardworking, compassionate, and committed attorney who meticulously prepares his cases. He demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the law each time he enters the courtroom. It is hard to describe how grateful I am for all of the time and effort Jeffrey has put into my case. He gave me the strength to fight when I was at my lowest. He fought for my welfare and the welfare of my child. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. He is the attorney you need.


Highly Recommended. Jeffrey Markowicz is an exceptional attorney. He worked tirelessly on my case and was always available to answer questions whenever they came up. As someone with no prior experience with the legal system, I felt overwhelmed by all of the minutiae of the legal process, but Jeff was able to provide guidance and advice at every turn. He was able to make a difficult time of my life less onerous thanks to all of his hard work. I would recommend him to anyone.


Intelligent, knowledgeable, flexible and understanding. Jeffrey is intelligent, knowledgeable, flexible and understanding. He is able to quickly digest multiple dynamics of a situation, and craft his advice based on the unique circumstances and given laws to provide extremely effective advice. He has made himself available inside and outside (though not sure this is preferred) of business hours to ensure that I got the advice I needed, when I needed it. Jeffrey has been a huge help as I work through my situation, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.


Best Family/Divorce Lawyer on the East Coast. Working with Jeffrey was such a pleasure! Most times I was a nervous wreck and he held it all the way down! He was very attentive and supportive, but most importantly he kept it REAL. He was confident and knowledgeable; I was so grateful to have him on my side! Thank you again Jeffrey!


Excellent Lawyer. Jeffrey Markowicz is hands down the best custody lawyer you can get. My case was a multi state jurisdictional mess. After attempting to go through the courts in my state of residence and being taken for a ride, I found Jeffrey. I was a little defeated and had little faith left in the system. After explaining the situation, Jeffrey had the answers that I needed.


Honest and straightforward. Jeff gives you his honest and straightforward option. He is definitely the one to hire to get the job done right. Thanks for your past and present services.

I felt informed and in control of the situation. Jeffrey was also very understanding of my situation and made me feel comfortable. I recommend


Great consultation. Jeffrey really put me at ease during a very stressful time in my life. I was going through a custody case and it weighed very heavily on me. Post-consultation with Jeffrey I realized I have rights also. He was very honest & detailed. Great qualities for an attorney.


Mr. Markowicz was very knowledgeable about my unique case and he did a great job in representing my family. I could not ask for a better attorney.


The best of the best. I have worked with Jeff since last year. He is an outstanding attorney who really cares about his clients. He is very aggressive and convincing in the courtroom. I helped me get access to my kids. He always tries his best to minimize legal fees for his clients. I would strongly recommend Jeff to someone involved in a CPO/DRB case.

Mr. Markowicz has been my One and only Attorney thru the years there is no one even close to his style and methods in the courtroom. Diverse And knowledgeable in the law, is always a step ahead of the opposing side. He fights to win.

Carmine C.

I was introduced to Jeffrey Markowicz over 10 years ago through a mutual friend during a social event. At the time I did not think I would need the services of an attorney but a few years later that changed. After acquiring his services he diligently broke down all legal matters of my case without the legal jargon that made me feel comfortable and more importantly understand the case. Through his careful planning and hard work I WON my case!!!


Jeffrey’s communication is clear and compassionate. Divorce isn’t pleasant but knowing that I have a lawyer that is practical, aggressive when need be, and can speak to me in layman terms makes this easier to navigate. He is a master negotiator and has a knack for helping both parties arrive at realistic solutions.

Natalya M.

We retained Mr. Markowicz to handle a delicate matter involving a family dispute. I can say I’ve never met a more compassionate, professional attorney who gave us the time and attention we needed. While we’re very happy with the results, we’re even happier to have found an attorney we can trust and plan to work with in the future for a long time.
