Firm Profile

The firm was founded on the guiding principle that the best lawyers are the ones that combine a variety of skills, both inside and outside the law, to bring clients a special kind of representation, one that is broad in scope and focused at the same time.  While it is difficult for some attorneys to see the "big picture" of their clients' interests, Marin Law Partners, LLP was founded for just that purpose. We strive to anticipate aspects of the client's case which might ordinarily require consultation with other professionals, at additional cost.  The result is legal representation which is as effective in balancing the client's budget as it is in the courtroom, or on the documents.

None of the Hassles of a Large Law Firm

Marin Law Partners, LLP is a small firm designed to be small. We pride ourselves on personalized service and we get to know our clients. Where larger firms are impersonal and treat clients with a "cookie cutter" approach, we take a personal interest in seeing you succeed!

Low-Cost and Flexible Fee Arrangements

Whether you agree to compensate the firm on an hourly, lump-sum, or contingent fee basis, we refuse to subject our clients to a pricing scheme which adds a myriad of additional costs onto the basic fee.  All you'll pay is the rate you agree upon, plus our reasonable expenses.   The "overhead costs" of operating the firm, including support and clerical staff, are included in our rates.
