    I have read dozens of Mr. Westerfield's responses on Avvo, and it is clear to me that he is an attorney with extraordinary insight and skill. He demonstrates great analytical skills together with experience and compassion. I endorse him.

  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    Mark is a great lawyer. He has a solid track record in the court and knows the law extremely well. With lots of published answers to legal questions on too, it should be obvious to anyone that Mark cares about making sure people get good (and accurate) advice on their rights and obligations. If you have any kind of legal problem at all, and his office is anywhere near you, I highly recommend him to you.
