Overcoming Obstacles
Achieving Results

McCusker, Anselmi, Rosen & Carvelli, P.C., opened its doors in 1996 with one mission in mind: to deliver top-notch and cost-effective legal services at the highest level of personal attention.

Since then, we have built a track record of robust civil and criminal representation. Our clients range from Fortune 500 corporations, especially in the oil and pharmaceutical industries, to smaller companies and individuals.

Our expertise includes environmental, commercial, employment, and First Amendment litigation and counseling, as well as white-collar criminal defense.

We have "big firm" experience, but also take pride in our one-on-one service. Clients don’t get overlooked.

At MARC, we thrive in an atmosphere of close client communication and trust. We earn that trust through the dedicated performance of each attorney and staff member.

Two decades after we founded the firm, our principles remain intact.

It’s as simple as that.
