Born in Cleveland Ohio, Mitchell Marczewski has resided in southeast Ohio since 1984 and was a businessman for 19 years before practicing law.  He earned his Bachelor's degree summa cum laude from Ohio University (1994) and a law degree from Capital University Law School (1999).

He is licensed to practice before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohiothe United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and all state courts in Ohio.

He is one of the few attorneys in southeast Ohio who practices exclusively bankruptcy and has personally filed more than 2,700 bankruptcy cases since 2001.  His experience includes contested matters and adversary proceedings (a civil lawsuit within a bankruptcy case).

Attorney Marczewski has a strong interest in legal education and has taught business law at Ohio Christian University (2012-15) and taught contracts and business organizations at Zane State College (2017-18).  Since 2013, he has chaired the Continuing Legal Education Committee of the Muskingum County Bar Association and was recently elected President-elect for 2020.

He has appeared more than fifteen (15) times on local NBC affiliate WHIZ-TV Sidebar Legal Series and presented information a wide range of legal topics.

Historically and philosophically, he believes that the Biblical foundations of American law are beyond dispute.   Among the evidence of this fact is the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. which has carvings of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the main courtroom.  The two entry doors depict the Ten Commandments with one tablet on each door and the exterior pinnacle has a stone carving of Moses holding the Ten CommandmentsThere are additional depictions of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the Great Hall, the West Facade, the Bronze Gate and the Frieze.  These Biblical references would not be carved on the nation's highest court if the legislators and judges of that era did not have a high regard for the Bible and the Judeo-Christian tradition.  This tradition was explained in detail by the justices themselves in an 1892 court opinion in the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States (143 U.S. 457).
