Ten Great Years
Marilyn York has been my legal counsel since my daughter was a toddler - some ten years ago. She and her knowledgeable team have helped me through the many grueling child custody battles that I have endured over that time. Marilyn has been instrumental in getting the courts to allow me to see my child during the times when my right to see her was challenged at every turn, and when my little one was too young to speak for herself. Marilyn helped me to avoid undue financial burdens that I was unaware could be levied against me, and has steered me through the false accusations and charges that threatened my very relationship with my now thirteen year-old girl. But more importantly, in my mind, she has provided my daughter and I with the peace of mind and the stress-reducing power of knowing that the courts are most concerned with the welfare of the child involved, the confidence that I was doing the best that I could do, and that Marilyn had done all of this before.
Marilyn fought for me in the past and most recently, in February of 2015, has done so again. Now, as before, she continues to passionately take ownership of my case as though she were fighting for her own kids. She has generously spent nights away from work responding to my fretful questions and alleviating my fears by sharing her knowledge. This goes above normal lawyer-client responsibilities to me. Some of you know Marilyn and you know that she is unique - she definitely has her own style. But, happily, I have gotten to know her pretty well; and she is not just unique - she is extraordinary. Regardless of the help that she has provided for me in the past - and certainly in this most recent life-changing event she has outdone herself - Marilyn York would still be something special.
Hidden from the general public and her colorful TV commercials is a person whose energy does not stop with her job. Her philanthropic efforts with mentoring young girls go unspoken of, but I know of them and it comes as no surprise to me. In a world where our so-called heroes tend to dress in colorful uniforms, parade around on red carpets, and accept trophies for doing their jobs; my daughter and I will stick with our own hero. Thank you, Marilyn. Lasagna, anyone?!
