  • Patrick Michael Lawrence Blanch

    I endorse Mark Petrovich for all levels of criminal defense in both state and federal court. I have known Mark as a fellow lawyer for 8 years and the highest praise that I can give is that Mark is on the short list of lawyers that I call for a second opinion when I have a case with a novel issue. He is always knowledgeable and meticulously prepared, and one can tell that he truly cares about the welfare of his clients.
