An excellent and efficient lawyer. Mr. Emden understands how the system functions and plans his strategies accordingly. He has a knack for finding seemingly trivial details about your case and using them efficiently. He makes it clear that he is in partnership with you and that you are a significant part of the process. Also, he understands that people hire lawyers in times of stress and, while he insists on getting to the truth of the matter, he is a kind and compassionate man. We were lucky he was the first to call us when we sent out several email feelers at 8:30 on a Sunday morning.
Mr. Emden provided me with outstanding representation in a peace order case, timely communication, extensive knowledge about my situation and realistic expectations about the outcome of my case. He charged a fair price for the level of service he provided and delivered everything he said he would. He did not give me any false expectations and told me after we won the case what the other parties options were. He informed me of my options to have the case shielded and walked me through the process so that I could complete the process myself. I would recommend him to anyone looking for legal representation and will not hesitate to call him should I need legal assistance in the future.
Mark was extremely smart and did an excellent job. I could not be more pleased. His strategy was extremely effective. He took steps to do research on the case, spoke to the appropriate authorities and got my case dismissed as it was based on fraudulent accusations.
After speaking with about 8 other attorneys, I feel very lucky to have found such an extremely smart efficient and caring attorney. He explained his strategy and worked rapidly to get the work done. He charged me a fair rate and had me "pay as we go" so as not to charge me a large sum when the "end" was not evident. I truly trust Mark Emden, and gladly recommend him.
Although I live outside the USA, I needed to bring a case in Rockville, MD and was referred to Marc Emden. He was very responsive, easy to work with by email and phone and then in person. He is empathetic while staying objective and we had a positive outcome. I would return to Marc Emden in a similar situation.
I located Mr.Emden while conducting a web search. His website was so imformative and impressive I had to call him to get help with a difficult tenant. It was a Saturday, I left a message and he returned my call within 2 hours!! When we met the following week, I knew I made the right decision...and I won my case!! :-)
I cannot speak highly enough of Marc Emden, and his ability to do what he does well! My experience was excellent; he is very professional, trust-worthy, and extremely reliable. Fees are very reasonable for the quality of service he provides. I highly recommend anyone to contact Marc Emden.
I have observed Mr. Emden working in the capacity of mediator for a peace order case. It was a very emotional situation, and he was able to remain neutral while providing assistance in reaching a resolution. Mr. Emden was extremely professional and demonstrated a clear understanding of the situation. Should I ever need to retain a lawyer, I will be contacting Mr. Emden!
Mr. Emden was both business-like and very friendly at the same time. He asked me to take my time and tell him my case from the very beginning so as to not omit anything. He then asked me detailed questions to fill in the gaps. After explaining the law and where my case stood, he told me the 2 options I had and how much he would charge. He also explained that if an appeal was necessary, it would cost me an additional fee, which he quoted. He also told me that while he was going to try his best regardless of the option I chose, the chance of winning, under the circumstances was very slim. I felt comfortable because I knew not to have unreasonably high hopes and also exactly how much each option would cost me. Mr. Emden also told me that I needed to get some documents together.
I called him several times with questions regarding the documents. Each time, Mr Emden returned my calls promptly. He called me on his own several times, including one week before trial and the day before trial. The case ended better than we both had hoped for.
Marc Emden acted with a strong sense of urgency on my case which was time sensitive. He connected promptly with the appropriate resources for my complicated business litigation matter. Notably, he exercises compassion with clients in a meaningful way. I strongly recommend Marc Emden without reservation.
Initial consultation was thorough and thoughtful. Mr. Emden handled all facets of my case reliably and professionally, and as if my relatively small case was just as important as any other.
