I got drunk one night celebrating a friends birthday and I got into an altercation with security which then spilled over with the police. Long story short I was beaten up good by the cops. I don't remember much of anything on that night but on my report it said that I told the cops i would slap them badges or not. I've never fought in my life or ever tried instigating one. But I guess a drunk me does. I was facing criminal charges and Mark got my case dismissed and I had to pay a small fine. Thank you Mark!! He's the best.
I was facing minimum 5 years jail time, due to an overwhelming amount of drugs/cash i was caught with. Felony poss/int to distribute/various other charges. During that pending charge, caught a hit and run/leaving the scene of an accident, which he got me off of along with another possession and intent to distribute charge. Rather than 5 years of jail time, he got me PTI for 12 months, with community service and some minor fines. Got my hit and run thrown out, along with the second poss/int to distribute charges which if sentenced would have violated PTI and went to jail for the remainder of my time, and permanently had 2 felonies on my record. Instead got the case dismissed and thrown out and am currently still serving my PTI sentence and doing my community service. Upon completion of PTI, am able to get my record expunged and be free and clear of ABSOLUTELY ANY CHARGES EVER.
Mark Cheser is an unbelievable lawyer who knows his way around beating many cases that seem doomed. He knows the laws very well and he knows our rights as people, and does a very excellent job executing an outcome which involves the very minimal of consequences.
I received a DUI in 2013. I immediately hired a very reputable law firm. After 5 months of adjournments, me doing all of the research to get a lighter suspension I was totally frustrated and knew I was looking at a long suspension. I asked around and found Mark Cheser. He asked me to come in so he could review my case and in one hour I learned more than I had in the past 5 months. He agreed to take my case. In our first court appearance he got the breathalyzer thrown out for several reasons, 5 month suspension and no device in my car. He also arranged for another month before suspension so I could get my ducks in a row. when we returned to court a month later he asked me if I had any questions before he saw the prosecutor. I said "Get my suspension lower". He returned 20 minutes later with a four month suspension! I was stunned. He is an amazing attorney and he also has a great sense of humor which is very helpful in a time of stress. I would also like to commend his paralegal Sue for her quick responses to my inquiries and always keeping me informed. I definitely recommend Mr. Cheser.
My name is Anthony i am a current client of Mr. Cheser. I was possibly facing 3-5 yrs in jail for a handgun charge and Mr. Chaser was able to get my case dropped down from a state charge to a municipal charge. How i couldn't tell you but definitely worked miracles. He is also still standing by me through my municipal case and wouldn't have anybody else by my side
THANKS MR. CHESER
I had a traffic ticket and called Mr. Mark's office. He called me a few hours back and gave me all the options including my chances of fighting the case by myself. He was honest and upfront. Based on his advice and my circumstances I did not use his legal help but by the way he shared all the options with me, I know that he is a trust worthy and honest man and I would strongly recommend him.
Mark Chester is an amazing lawyer. I had two difficult cases that I definitely needed a lawyer for and I hired him. One case was possession of CDS that he was able to get dropped. And another case was of someone who was using my identity and got pulled over and received 3 tickets. Speeding 30mph over the limit, no registration, and no license. And I realized I had these tickets issued to me while paying for a parking ticket online. I called the township and told them that wasn't me driving and they did not care. Mark Chester was able to track down who was driving that vehicle with the license plate by issuing a subpoena to the company who owned the vehicle and find out exactly who was the individual driving during the time of the tickets and that used my information. During court everything was dropped thanks to Mr Chester and he will forever now be my lawyer if anything were to ever happen again and I would recommended hiring him over any other lawyer in the state.
I had a very high DUI case that could have ruined my career. Mark Cheser got me out of the DUI and lowered to a Reckless Driving, which is only points not a criminal record. If your looking for a great affordable lawyer contact Mark Cheser.
Mark Cheser is GREAT at what he does. My boyfriend had a felony charge for Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance. First, Mark got the case downgraded from Superior court to Municipal court as a Disorderly Persons offense. He was with us at all 4 court appearances, and ultimately got the charge downgraded even more to Loitering with Intent. What started out as a FELONY ended with NO jailtime, NO PROBATION, and he even saved us $200 on the fine. In the end, the only thing we had to do was pay a $375 fine, a much better outcome than we ever expected! Mark is very straightforward and always let us know exactly what to expect and what the options were, this man does not beat around the bush. You could tell that he genuinely cares about the case and his clients. He is seriously a miracle worker, HIGHLY recommended and worth every penny.
I was facing three second degree charges, and about five third degree charges for marijuana distribution in union county. Mark was very understanding and didn't judge me on my mistakes like other attorneys have. Mark worked out a great deal on both cases and even helped my co defendant who lived with me at the time of the raid. Mark was very down to earth, easy to relate to, and overall the best attorney with extremely fair pricing. I would recommend him to anyone, especially if they have a criminal case. I was facing over ten years in prison for each case and I walked away only having to do one and both my cases are running concurrent instead of consecutive. Thank u Mark!
Mark and his staff were extremely helpful. As a first-time offender, they answered all of my questions and were available by phone or email. He was able to reduce my fines and monetary fees and has an excellent rapport with the Prosecutor's office.
