Jeffrey E. Marshall

Raleigh, North Carolina Attorney. Jeff was born and raised in Rochester, New York. After graduating from Fairport High School, Jeff attended SUNY Buffalo, where he was recruited to play football by former Buffalo Bills great and current NFL coach, Jim Haslett. At SUNY Buffalo Jeff received his BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. He then attended Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio where he graduated with Order of the Curia honors. Immediately following graduation, Jeff moved to North Carolina where he has practiced law ever since.

Jeff’s law practice is focused entirely on Family Law and Divorce matters. He is a North Carolina Board Certified Family Law Specialist. At the time of his certification, he was one of only 204 lawyers state-wide to achieve this distinction. The North Carolina State Bar certifies lawyers as specialists in designated practice areas as a service to the public to identify lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill and proficiency in certain areas of law. To be certified as a specialist in a practice area, a lawyer must have extensive experience in their area of practice, be favorably evaluated by other lawyers and judges, and pass a written examination in the specialty practice area.

Jeff has also been certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Committee as a Family Financial Mediator and has successfully resolved many family law cases for attorneys and their clients who are going through the difficult process of separation and divorce. Additionally, Jeff is often chosen by his peers as an arbitrator to make legally binding decisions in highly contested family law matters. He is humbled by the number of colleagues who contact him for advice and representation in their own family law cases.

In addition to being a Board Certified Family Law Specialist and a Certified Family Financial Mediator, Jeff has been listed among the “Legal Elite” for Family Law in Business North Carolina Magazine (fewer than 3% of the state’s lawyers made the list) and has been listed among North Carolina Super Lawyers for Family Law (only 5% of attorneys in North Carolina are selected).

Jeff is a member of the Wake County Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Association and the North Carolina State Bar. As a member of the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association, Jeff is also a part of the Appeals Monitoring Committee and the Continuing Legal Education Committee.

Jeff currently serves on the Advisory Board and is the past President on the Board of Directors for The Child’s Advocate, a local, non-profit organization designed to ensure that courts hear and understand a minor child’s opinions in highly contested custody cases.

Testimonials

Looking for an attorney whose ethics and morals are above reproach? Look no further than the attorneys at Marshall & Taylor... He has my strongest recommendation if you are in need of a professional attorney who not only understands the law, but is highly experienced and cost effective! -Jody from Avvo

- Phenomenal Cost-Effective Attorney

The divorce process is tough. Not only is it emotionally difficult and physically draining, but the actual legal process itself is simply unchartered territory for most of us. When my spouse served me with a separation papers & an out of this world financial proposal — I nearly had a heart attack. I was just plain shocked and totally unprepared for the ridiculous and unjustified financial demands that she wanted. I was an emotional wreck, but in a panic, I called my CPA advisor and asked for help. I’ve known my CPA for over 5 years having found him thru the Dave Ramsey website. When I asked him to recommend a divorce attorney, he gave me one name, Jeff Marshal. I’m not going to attempt to list all the reasons you should call Jeff, but I can attest that you will not be sorry you called. The divorce process has significant and lasting implications on everything important in your life after divorce. Make sure you that you have Jeff by your side when these decisions are being made, I am certain that you will be glad you did.

- I recommend Jeff Marshall

I found myself in a position of impending separation/divorce. My situation involved marital misconduct in another country(a very difficult to prove situation), did my due diligence; read reviews and went to visit 5 different attorneys... My case outcome was much better than the original offer I made to my ex spouse(before I had a lawyer) and giving credit where credit is due; Jeff’s knowledge to execution is what made the difference. I must add Jeff made me look past my anger and really had the best interests of me and my children in mind... - Client from Avvo

- I highly recommend Jeff. Him and his staff are awesome!

MR Marshall prepared my Premarital Agreement for me. I am extremely pleased with the results. He provided excatly what I asked and more. I would highly recommend Mr. Marshall to anyone needing his services. - Client from Avvo

- Great Job!

I recently used Jeff Marshall to settle my drawn-out and contentious divorce and custody cases, and found him to be extremely helpful. He took his time to get to know me and my situation, helped me make decisions moving forward, gave me great advice on things that I could do that would limit the time he needed to spend on the case (thus dropping my bill), and represented me quite well during my custody hearing. Having Jeff as my attorney was, in my opinion, critical to positive outcome I received from the custody hearing. - Client from Avvo

Jeff and his team helped me with my seperation and divorce. I was very happy with my settlement and the way they were able to just focus on the buisness at hand which was to protect my interests.

- Very Satisfied Customer

Mr. Marshall is a superb attorney. He understands the law better than anyone else with whom I consulted. He is very prompt in responding to email and voicemail.
