Ms Clayton was direct, precise, and gave us all the time we needed to explain our case. I mean, of course she needs that to determine the good, the bad, and the ugly...but the point is, she was patient. She gave us options on what could happen and specifics on what may happen. We had a clear understanding of where we stood even just after our consultation. Where you're going is going to be bright MarQuetta Clayton, I'm excited for your future endeavors and I will definitely recommend you again.

MarQuetta Clayton is a consummate professional. She knows how to get the job done by the following: 1. She made me feel like a priority, and that she was going to fight hard for my case. 2. Every day we met, she was open to hearing not only my side, discussed the way ahead and our plan, but also respecting my thoughts about the case. 3. In the courtroom, she was my advocate, and made it clear to the Judge, prosecution, and jurors I was "not guilty." The jury came back with a "not guilty" verdict in 15 mins.

MarQuetta was insightful and provided expert advice. She thoughtfully and patiently went over all of my available legal options and ensured I had a firm understanding of the proceedings. Her follow-ups were very helpful and demonstrated her client-first attitude. I highly recommend her.

Ms. Clayton is a wondeful lawyer, affordable, hardworking & dedicated to her job. I would recommend her in any situation. She's very thorough. Has helped me every step of the way. Also, I found contacting her is easy. She's reliable & a women of her word. If I was to ever need an attorney, I would most definitely seek her assistance again.

Ms. Clayton was the perfect option for my case. She listened to every concern I had and gave me great advice and lead us in the right direction. We were well prepared for the court hearing. I had 2 motions against me and we won both of them. My ex-wife is still is highly disappointed that the outcome was in my favor and not hers. She helped to save my relationship with my daughter and have my child support payments reduced which the AG's office was vehemently against. I would recommend Ms. Clayton for any legal needs you have.

My wife and I were very impressed for two main reasons. First, the way that Ms. Clayton in our defense went head on against the prosecutor and their witnesses in trial. Secondly the service we received since the beginning to the winning trial day was incomparable to any attorney I’ve previously hired. Moving forward Ms. Clayton is now the whole family attorney. My wife and I highly recommend Ms. Clayton to anyone needing her services.


Nicest lawyer I ever met

Marquetta did an outstanding job in taking my child support case. She worked on my behalf to make sure I was not taken advantage of and she went over and beyond to make sure my timeshare and financial needs were met.
