Marczewski Law Office

We are a debt relief agency and help people file bankruptcy under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code

Mitchell Marczewski has been a supporter of The River for many years. When you meet Attorney Marczewskil you will find his demeanor to be one that mirrors Jesus – kind, caring and compassionate. He is one of just a handful of attorneys in southeast Ohio whose practice is geared exclusively to bankruptcy law and he has personally filed more than 2,000 bankruptcy cases. Attorney Marczewski doesn’t offer a “cookie cutter” approach with his clients. He genuinely cares about each client and searches for the best options that will serve the best interest of his client. In 1994, Attornery Marczewski earned his Bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Ohio University  and then a law degree from Capital University Law School in 1999. Attorney Marczewski is licensed to practice before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and all state courts in Ohio.

Attorney Marczewski has taught Business Law at Ohio Christian University (2012-2015) and currently teaches Contracts & Business Organizations at Zane State College.  Since 2013, he has also chaired the Continuing Legal Education Committee of the Muskingum County Bar Association. Historically and philosophically, Attorney Marczewski believes that the Biblical foundations of American law are beyond dispute.  The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. has carvings of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the main courtroom.  The two entry doors depict the Ten Commandments with one tablet on each door.  A carving of Moses as “one of the world’s lawgivers” holding the Ten Commandments is on the pinnacle at the rear of the building. There are additional depictions of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the Great Hall, the West Facade, the Bronze Gate and the Frieze. These Biblical references are historical facts and important to our system of law and justice.  They would not be carved on government buildings if the legislators and judges of that era did not have a high regard for the Bible and the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Financial problems can come our way no matter who we are and good people can run out of financial resources. If you are facing a foreclosure, sheriff sale, mounting debt, student loans, creditor harassment, etc. Contact Mitchell Marczewski Attorney at Law today!
