Marcos Fernandez, Senior Associate Attorney

“Hi, I’m Marcos. I practiced in litigation for nearly a decade, the latter half exclusively litigating divorce actions.  I have seen the financial and emotional havoc hotly contested divorces wreak on families and have also seen how non-adversarial and collaborative tactics work to deescalate tensions and help families deal with unwinding their marriage compassionately. I joined the Vacca Family Law Group to help clients obtain their divorce with dignity and respect.”

Marcos exclusively employs a non-adversarial and collaborative approach to resolving matrimonial and family law matters. With nine years of experience in matrimonial and commercial litigation, Marcos understands the challenges his clients face if they end up in court. His awareness of the financial and emotional risks litigation poses to families enables him to face confrontation and conflict head-on and skillfully address challenges that arise during mediation and the collaborative divorce process.

Marcos recognizes that his clients’ situations are not win-lose scenarios, but complex problems that require collaboration to reach mutually beneficial solutions. He is highly skilled at finding equitable and realistic resolutions that accommodate the unique needs of each of his clients. Additionally, his deep understanding of financial matters allows him to analyze and interpret complex financial documents and address complicated issues such as stock options and shareholder-related concerns. This enables him to provide informed and strategic guidance on the equitable distribution of property ensuring that his clients' financial interests are well-represented throughout the process.
