Attorney Schmelkin is a founding partner at Karpenski & Schmelkin, Divorce & Family Law Attorneys. Marc’s passion for the law is rooted in his family ties as a 3rd generation lawyer. Marc is a strong believer that any person facing a legal challenge deserves proper legal education and representation.
Marc’s practice focuses on representing individuals who face some of the most life-altering moments; divorce and family law. The end of a marriage (or relationship) can be a catastrophic event for a person. Marc’s practice concentrates on all areas of family law including but not limited to divorce, unmarried parents, high conflict child custody issues and parenting plan issues, child support and/or alimony issues, out-of-state relocation issues, high net worth division issues, complex property division issues, closely held business valuation issues, contempt issues, 209A restraining orders, adoptions, and negotiating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
Marc works closely with his clients and starts off each consultation listening to his clients, gathering all the necessary information, and finding out what are their objectives. Thereafter, Marc provides his clients with reasonable expectations on the specific issue(s) in dispute for his clients to make an informed decision on how to move forward with the case. Whether in negotiations or in the courtroom, Marc zealously advocates for his client’s interests.
Marc has spent the past decade litigating Divorce and Family Law cases in the Probate and Family Court across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and has earned a stellar reputation among his peers. Marc is a tough advocate and delivers outcomes based on knowledge, hard work, and trust. Marc tailors his approach in handling each case depending on the facts and circumstances of the case and his experience because not every case is the same and each deserves the individual attention to detail.
Marc serves clients all throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As a resident of the South Shore of Massachusetts, he regularly practices in Norfolk, Plymouth, Middlesex, and Worcester counties as well as the Cape and the Islands.
