    I have known Mark for many years. I have consulted Mark on past criminal law issues and his answers were always correct. He aggressively advocates for all of his criminal clients and is well respected among his colleagues.

    I endorse Mr. Cheser's work. Since I do not practice in the criminal defense area I refer my clients to Mr. Cheser and they have advised that they were impressed with his knowledge of the law and the manner in which he aggressively sought out defenses with the facts presented.
