I want to thank God for the opportunity of having Marc Seitles as my attorney and for representing me the way he did. I hired him and he helped me to view things with a different perspective with clarity and with reason. He fought my case with all his strength and had amazing dedication from beginning to end. He never stopped fighting and always found even the smallest of things to use to help me for our victory. He was always very accessible to me and my family. He has an amazing team that are all great human beings and they become very interested in my case like if it was their own case. They are always available for any questions we had and they were always very nice and professional.

Marc Seitles is undoubtedly a warrior in a court room. I like how he will fight for you relentlessly without a doubt. Never forgets to touch base with you and does not leave you out of the loop. We hired him to defend this case and we've seen how passionate he is. He is lawyer who loves his job and knows his case study very well. I recommend him to everyone in need of a lawyer, you will not regret it.
Marc Seitles and his law practice come highly recommended by myself and my family. Through what can be some rather harrowing times and downright scary moments, Marc and his staff were kind, professional, and tenacious in the delivery of the justice that we sought. Unfortunately it's in times of great duress that people turn to others that make them all sorts of promises. I hired Mr. Seitles and I can very boldly claim that Marc was always realistic and optimistic through every step of the journey. I am proud to call him my friend at this point and urge anybody looking for this type of legal service to give him and his offices a call.
The only attorney in Miami you can trust, and believe me I tried some, when you are in trouble the lawyer can become your worst enemy, not the case here, a decent ethical man that will treat you as family and fight for you till the end. When he shows up and tells you this is war! He means it! And you know what it is really war, and he doesn't know how to lose.
I was VERY impressed with MS Litwin's performance at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday. As a friend of the family I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts.
My attorney Marc Seitles helped me with my long ridiculous sentence and I was destined to die in jail without ever harming anyone. I am so happy with Marc's representation. I firmly believe that God put him on my path. He used Marc's great intelligence and deep insight of the law to free me from a sad faith. I remember the first time I spoke with Marc he promised me that he would fight for me like a beast and he did! Marc along with his marvelous legal team which are great loving people, compassionate individuals that do not treat people as mere case numbers but as actual people in distress with a great need of relief. I am overall super happy for Marc's representation and all his kindness and efforts with my case.
I am extremely thankful with the excellent legal representation offered by Marc Seitles. His professionalism, good ethics, his 100% dedication and perseverance was a great combination that gave us great results at the end of my case. He worked extremely hard to get me a great reduction on my sentence and he was ablet to do so by reducing 83% of it. Because of his hard work and dedication I am able to reunite with family and loved ones. If it wasn't for him I would not be able to be here with them and spend the holidays all together. Our family is extremely grateful to God first and then to him. Thanks Mr. Seitles for being an awesome and caring attorney. We Love You.
For the attorney Marc Seitles I only have to say thank you thank you thank you. His job has been so honest and sincere which has allowed me to enjoy my freedom and be reunited with my son and my family here in Colombia. He is an amazing person that works very hard for all his clients and can be trusted 100%. Mr. Seitles tells you how it is and his fees are affordable. From the bottom of my heart Marc I want to say thank you and I know that God placed you in my path and I thank him for allowing us to meet. I was arrested in Colombia and pregnant and extradited later to the United States and had to leave my newborn baby behind but you came from heaven to help me with my case and you have for sure a gold medal in heaven. I wish you the best in your professional life as well as in your personal life because you deserve it.
