Attorneys and staff from Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP congratulate Co-Founder Marna Tucker on receiving this esteemed honor.
“In the 31 years that we’ve worked together, Marna has fostered in me – and the other Family Law attorneys in the firm – a commitment to the highest standards of the practice of law together with the skills to respond to the very human problems of clients in crisis,” said Mary Pence, a senior partner in the firm’s Family Law practice. “She has been a wonderful mentor, colleague and friend.”
