Marco Brown – Divorce Attorney

Marco Brown

I still remember the day a good friend called and asked me to help her get divorced. Hers was a very difficult situation, and while I had never done a divorce before, I knew I needed to take her case.

The night before I met with her, I stayed up until 3 a.m. reading everything I could about family law. Whatever I read that night worked because we got a great result.

Honestly, I had never thought about being a divorce attorney before my friend’s case. After her case, however, I was hooked.

At this point, I have to back up for a moment. I grew up in a little village in Alaska (and by little I mean 85 people little). Kids from places like that don’t become successful lawyers. Thankfully, however, my parents expected big things of their boys. They expected us to be like our grandmother, who had a doctorate and was a special education professor. We were to be educated and serve our communities. That was our duty.

I had searched since I was young to fulfill that duty, and I had done okay at it. I served a mission for my church in Italy. I worked full-time with intellectually impaired individuals for years. I clerked for judges in the third district in Iowa after law school.

All of that was great, and I loved it. But it wasn’t until I helped my friend that I found what I had been looking for in the law. Helping families successfully transition during such a difficult period was necessary, fulfilling, and important work.

Since finishing my friend’s case, I have dedicated myself to becoming the best divorce and family law attorney possible and developing the best family law firm in Utah.

Outside Work

Brown Family

Demaree, Elliot and Marco Brown

When I’m not working, I hang with my family. My beautiful wife, Demaree, has a doctorate in vocal performance. In other words, she sings opera (yeah, she’s the one everyone likes, and I’m the lawyer). My son is a ham who loves bowling and often refers to himself in the third-person.

I also read. A lot. Like geek amounts a lot. It’s usually about history, law, or business. I don’t read much fiction, but when I do I prefer Steinbeck and Kafka. (I already used the word “geek,” right?)

I cook too — Italian mostly, because it’s awesome. My favorite food is pizza. (Not Domino’s or Papa John’s; the real stuff you find on spaccanapoli in Naples.) Pizza is how we know God loves us.

And to keep weight off while I read and cook, I hike or lift weights.

When possible, we vacation as a family in Europe. There’s nothing quite like walking the old streets, smelling the pastries, visiting the museums, and soaking in the amazing cultures.

Thank you so much for letting me introduce myself. I hope our website and our firm provide you the knowledge and service you need to be successful.

Thank you to Amy Pomeroy and everyone else on my team for your more

Leilani was easy to work with and overall, very responsive. The process was pretty seamless and quick. My now ex paid 1/3 of what I did,... which was annoying truthfully but, at the same time I can see the quality in the work that Leilani and Brown Family provided more
I met with Daniel Young for a consultation on a pretty tricky legal situation and he was incredible at being very concise and even picking... out a possible discrepancy in the case - was very thankful to have met with him and his services are well worth it for any family law more

Brown Family Law is an amazing practice to work with. Clay Randle took my case and went well above and beyond all of my expectations. Clay... was extremely caring and understanding of my circumstances. He kept my best interests in mind throughout the entire process. I was kept well informed of every step of the legal roadmap.Put yourself at ease and hire Brown Family more
I really enjoyed the experience with Brown Family Law. I was assigned attorney Clay Randle. Divorces suck but Clay was always there along... the way. He always contacted me, once a week, and every time I had a question, he was always available. He fought for me, reassured me that things will be ok and guided me throughout the entire process. I strongly recommend this law firm and attorney Clay Randle to people that are going through a divorce. It's a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and when it comes to divorces, you need the very best in your corner. I'm glad I hired him. I got what I wanted which was 50/50 custody of my child and my full retirement. We have developed a relation that will last a lifetime. I have a lot of respect, admiration and obviously appreciation for what he has done for me. I owe him greatly for helping me put my life back together and giving me a fresh start with my new and better life. Don't hesitate to call more

I previously worked at Brown Family Law and can’t say enough good things about the people there. I can confidently say that everyone truly... cares about their clients and the results of their cases. It can be scary finding or trusting an attorney, but they are here to walk you through the process and answer all the questions you have. There isn’t a single attorney or paralegal that I wouldn’t trust if it ever came to my own legal issues. Collectively their experience makes for an amazing team that will do their absolute best to get you the best results on your case. The executive team is also amazing at making sure we walk clients through our process and communicating clients’ needs to their attorneys. Lei, Sierra, and Sophie help make this a smooth process to take the stress out of an already stressful situation. They work very hard to ensure that everyone on their team is acclimated to the system and on the same page so that we can best serve our clients. 10/10 recommend Brown Family Law!read more

I have a law degree and heavily researched which firm to use, then got a second opinion from a local practicing attorney, all of which led... me to Brown Family Law. Clay was great on the intake consultation and Nathaniel was excellent throughout -- clear communication, expert guidance, pragmatic advice, reasonable fees, and very supportive with various issues & questions, including during mediation.
