5.0 stars 12 totalReview Mark Copoulos
Best defense attorney in the city, and most certainly worth the money. I recently found myself in a situation with criminal charges placed against me for simple assault, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. Although I was sure of my innocence, I didn't trust this matter in the hands of a public defender. Only days before the case goes to trial, I made a call to Mark, whom Id only found by googling for a Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer. He was my first choice. Not only did I get a next day consultation, he was involved and invested from that first call. While I was expecting a prolonged and drawn out trial, Mark assured me he could have it dismissed, or a verdict of not guilty by the first trial. He didn't even bother me to entertain a notion of ARD. This past Monday, we went to trial and hit a home run with a verdict of not guilty. Mark is precise, attentive to detail and superb. He preformed brilliantly, and bestowed within me a new confidence. Even more, he's affordable and fair. If ever I find myself in trouble again, he's definitely my guns! You can't go wrong.

when my landlord (the defendant), who failed to appear at the first hearing, applied to re-open the case, my original lawyer was no longer available so i was forced to hire a new lawyer, and incur additional costs. mark was understanding of my situation and took the case at a discount. he absolutely nailed it and demonstrated during the hearing that he thoroughly understood every element of the case. he was assertive, yet professional with the judge, and fought hard for me, resulting in not only a win, but also had the judge award me my legal fees (which was not mandatory in my case).
if you are shopping around, stop right now and book mark before he's too busy to take your case. you will be in good hands. he's intelligent, well-spoken, assertive, patient and knows the reality of what you can, and should not, expect from the law given your case.
i will be sending all my philly friends to mark, should they require a lawyer.

For the first time ever, I needed the services of a lawyer. I looked at several different lawyers and their reviews in the Philadelphia area, trying to select someone who could help me. When I came to Mark Copoulos, I stopped. I am so glad I did. My first impression was of his friendliness, his knowledge, and his willingness to share that knowledge, and then give a frank, honest opinion. His expertise guided me through a period that I would have been lost without him. The outcome was in favor of me! Please..Do not hesitate calling Mark for any lawyer services. I feel much the better for knowing him and having him on "my team"!

Before I hired Mark, I googled him and I looked at the reviews about him. He is exactly as he has been described. He was extremely concerned by my problem and he was a very good listener. He gave me so much confidence, and he was very positive. I was supposed to go to my trial today, but we ended up without it, by having a judgement by agreement. He got me a huge deal: I am so happy , and so relieved , I wanted to hug him to show him how grateful I was. His services worth million dollars.
Thanks a lot Mark for your kindness, for being such a good listener, and your sense of humor.
Thanks , also my son's surgery goes very well. Best regards.

Mark is aggressive, scrappy and detail oriented, with sharp wit and class. He took his responsibility to us very seriously, but his personality was so cool, that he was actually fun to work with. Example: I warned him that the group he was going up against (a big property management company) were assholes. He has met them in court before and his reply was this "Yes, it's going to be a dog fight, and I'm ok with that", and then went on to discuss the merits of our case. He was highly communicative and responsive and instilled so much confidence in me (and let me tell you...I'm not the easiest person to deal with. I can be a tough customer), that I actually relaxed. There are no guarantees in legal battles, but I really felt great about the possibilities with him as our attorney. Oh...and WE WON.
Still reading? WHY?? Call him, hire him.
But if you want details...This was a landlord/tenant thing. My daughter and I were in a legal dispute with her property manager. They actually refused to speak to us about the issues at hand. Simply ignored all emails and phone calls. Amazing. It got to the point that their only response was via their attorney who sent my daughter an eviction notice! She was a graduating senior, already stressed, and I live in California. Tough. She was a basket case! I knew that I was going to have to find someone to help us...and fast. There was also a sizable amount of $$$ involved between us that I stood to either win or lose with these people. I am obviously more than satisfied with his work and the outcome of our case. Not that I ever want to be in this type of position again, but if I had to be, I'd want him on our side.

Mark is the real deal. He is very affordable and have his client's best interest at heart. Mark successfully fought and won my DUI case without me having a witness, even though it seemed that I needed a witness to have a chance at winning my case.

My son Charlie was arrested for drug possession. Somebody recommended that I call Mark. I was worried he was going to be more expensive than I could afford. Mark was great. He didn’t even make me pay the entire fee when we settled the case early.

Mark fought hard for me when the Public Defender ignored my case. The judge also seemed against me. He got a continuance and kept fighting until we got the result I wanted. He didn't charge me extra for the extra court appearances.
He was there to protect me at a time when it seemed like no one else in the world was interested in justice. Thank you Mark!
