Born in 1961 in Cleveland Ohio, Mitchell Marczewski has resided in southeast Ohio since 1984 and owned a small business for 19 years before practicing law.  He earned a 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 2,000 bankruptcy cases.  His experience includes contested matters and adversary proceedings (a civil lawsuit within a bankruptcy case).

He taught Business Law at Ohio Christian University (2012-2015) and currently teaches Contracts & Business Organizations at Zane State College.  Since 2013, he has chaired the Continuing Legal Education Committee of the Muskingum County Bar Association.

Attorney Marczewski has appeared more than fifteen times on local television WHIZ-TV Channel 18 (NBC) Sidebar Legal Series discussing a wide range of legal topics.

Historically and philosophically, Attorney Marczewski believes that the Biblical foundations of American law are beyond dispute.  The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. 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.  A carving of Moses as "one of the world's lawgivers" 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, the Bronze Gate and the Frieze. These Biblical references are historical facts and important to our system of law and justice.  They would not be carved on government buildings if the legislators and judges of that era did not have a high regard for the Bible and the Judeo-Christian tradition.  This legal tradition is further described by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1892 case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States (143 U.S. 457).
