Attorney Marczewski 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 law and has personally filed more than 2,800 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 previously taught Business Law at Ohio Christian University (2012-15) and also 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 chosen to be its President-elect for 2020.

He has appeared more than fifteen (15) times on the local NBC affiliate WHIZ-TV Channel 18 Sidebar Legal Series and presented information a wide range of legal topics.

Historically and philosphically, he believes that the Biblical foundations of American law are beyond dispute.  Most people are not aware that the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. has carvings of Moses and the Ten Commandments in the main courtroom.  The entry doors depict the Ten Commandments with one tablet on each door and the exterior pinnacle has a carving of Moses holding the Ten CommandmentsThere are additional depictions of the same in the Great Hall, the West Facade, the Bronze Gate and the Frieze.  The current court building was completed in 1935 and those depictions would not be displayed if lawmakers and judges of that era did not have great respect for the Bible and the Judeo-Christian tradition.  In 1892, this tradition was explained by the same court in the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States (143 U.S. 457).
