Owner and Attorney at Marcus Law Firm PLLC.
Marcus Law Firm, located in Phoenix, Arizona, was founded in 2018 by Hiedy Marcus. A once sole-practice turned team, Marcus Law Firm handles removal defense cases consisting of defensive asylum applications.
One of the biggest problems for Hiedy was finding time to track and manage her high-volume caseload in immigration court and everything else as a sole practitioner. (client meetings, court visits, form prep, administrative duties, .etc).
Stakes are high in removal proceedings and as her practice grew, so did her stress. Failure to track deadlines and develop efficient work processes would result in clients suffering.

Hiedy noticed a world of difference in her efficiency after switching to Docketwise. Hiedy had more time to run all aspects of Marcus Law, which freed up time for her to hire her first employee!
Hiedy attributes efficiency to Docketwise’s ease of use and features such as:
One of Hiedy’s favorite parts about Docketwise is its collaboration features with clients. With the ability to send forms securely via text message and collect information within the Client Portal, Hiedy works asynchronously with clients. She eliminates a lot of back-n-forth communication.
Also, since Docketwise adapts to smartphones, her clients can take action easily from their phones.
For any other attorney that finds themself at a loss for time or that could benefit from increased efficiency, Hiedy knows that embracing technology is the answer.
“We live in a world where you need to let technology work for you so you can focus on the things you love doing in your law practice.”
