I worked with Mark on my DUI case. My circumstances were poor, as I had crashed my car, failed the field sobriety tests, admitted drinking, and blew a .218. Thankfully I didn't hit anyone or anything of consequence, and nobody was injured. The circumstances of my arrest would typically result in at least a 9 month suspension followed by the ignition interlock. My case was resolved today, and Mark was able to work with an expert and some mitigating circumstances to have the breathalyzer thrown out as being unreliable, and have my sentence reduced to a three month suspension with no ignition interlock.
The savings of 6 months of driving time followed by 6-12 months of the interlock alone paid for Mark's fee, as well as the fee for the expert report. Additionally, it was at Mark's urging that I begin treatment for alcohol abuse and because I took that suggestion I've found that my life has improved greatly. I owe him as much for that as I do for the help with the legal problems.
I hope to never need another lawyer for a DUI, but I wouldn't hesitate using Mark again, or recommending him if needed.
My son had a shoplifting case for a small bottle of Visine. Mark worked with us, giving advice and talking with my son. He gave a reasonable price and was able to get it reduced to a few hours of community service. He even took the time to speak with my son after the court date and give some fatherly advice. Mark really cares about the client and gives more than just legal service. I would highly recommend him for your legal needs!
Mark represented my husband on several charges one of them being a 2nd degree murder. Mark was able to get several of these charges dropped and the 2nd degree murder charge down to aggravated assault.
Mark is not an attorney who rushes you off the phone or pushes you into making a quick decision about something. Mark is straight forward and lets you know what to expect and what your options are. He thinks outside of the box and genuinely cares about the best option for his clients. Mark is diligent and knows the laws inside and out. He also has a great sense of humor which was helpful during this stressful time. Mark is definitely a one of a kind attorney. You don’t find attorneys who genuinely care about their clients and who are not in it just for the money very often these days!
Mark’s assistant Susan is one of a kind as well. Susan constantly kept me in the loop on hearing dates and the status of my husband’s case.
I would highly recommend Mark for anybody that wants a trustworthy, talented, and dedicated attorney. Regardless of the seriousness of your case, Mark makes you feel like you are his top priority.
I was Charged with Possesion of Marijuana While Driving a Motor Vehicle,Tinted Windows and Paraphernalia.
He was able to negotiate all charges to a disorderly persons,which was a fine and no probation.
He was very reasonable and did a GREAT JOB
I would highly recommend him.
Mark was very affordable reliable and trustworthy. I would highly recommend Mark for any case but I can 100% vouch for DWI cases. Mark was able to do his due diligence and get my suspension to the lowest of only 3 months along with throwing out fines and fees. I could not have been more happy with the result and the entire process with him by my side.
I was looking at 11-12 points on my license in the state I live in ( the points are different than in Jersey). Mark got everything reduced to 2 points. Ididnt even ever have to show up to court! No BS. straight forward, great negotiator. Does what he says he can do. Period. Thanks Again Mr. Cheser.
Second lawyer ive had and hands down hes the man to go to no bullshit kept me informed of what was going on with my case was facing 3rd and 4th degree charges on possession with intent also had my car inpounded thanks to mr cheser im free and have my car back would not think twice on having him represent me again
I was arrested dead to rights DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. Mr. Cheser identified facts in my case that would have been a problem for the township. He's a smart and personable lawyer. He let me know up front that I wasn't getting off, but he was confident that I would get a very good deal. I paid a fine and only lost my license for 3 months. He has clearly worked with the prosecutor quite a bit, so he knew what to expect and how to present my case to him. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do, I will definitely call Mr. Cheser.
Mr Cheser helped me tremendously. He is extremely knowledgeable, diligent and assiduous (to say the least). I would absolutely recommend him to my friends and family.
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.
