He is one of the few attorneys in southeast

Attorney Marczewski has appeared more than fifteen times on local television WHIZ-TV Channel 18 (NBC) Sidebar
Legal Series discussing a wade range of legal topics.
Historically and philosophically, Attorney Marczewski believes that the
Biblical foundations of American law are beyond dispute. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. has a carving of Moses and the Ten Commandments
on the wall behind the justices. The two massive courtroom doors depict the Ten Commandments with one tablet on each
door. A stone carving of
Moses as "one of the
holding the Ten Commandments is on the pinnacle at the rear of the building. There are additional depictions of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the Great Hall, the West Facade, Bronze Gate and the
Frieze. These Biblical references are historical facts and important to our system of law and justice and they would not be
carved on government buildings if the lawmakers and judges of that era did not have a high regard for the Bible as a source
of American law. (See also Church
