I have read all three of these reviews and am astonished. I have never in my life met such a caring, understanding, patient and kind person. He was court appointed for my husband in Guilford County, had pending charges in Ashe County. I hired him to get a bond hearing for my husband in Ashe County. When I say Ashe County is dirty and underhanded that's a compliment compared to what I'd like to say. They were so low down they tried to sneak a first appearance in knowing that Mr. Cummings was out of town on his honeymoon. I spoke with him by phone to let him know that they had transferred him to Ashe. His exact words were "Not on my watch" I will never forget it. I had no idea he was on his honeymoon, I only knew he was out of town. He appeared in Ashe County the following morning with his lovely bride. My husband said he could not believe his eyes when he was brought into the courtroom and there stood Mr. Cummings and his new wife. Let me tell you he handed them a beat down, even other attorneys were in awe of him. It was so spectacular that another attorney who wasn't in the courtroom that day said I'm not as good as the guy you had, I heard about him. He is now a legend there. The man owned that courtroom, I wish I could have afforded to have him represent him up there for those charges because let me tell you they wanted no part of Mark Cummings again and they were afraid they would have to face him. I know I likely drove him crazy I emailed him so many times and called him so much, and it got to the point that he was like a family member to me. Not only did he defend my husband but he kept me from loosing my mind. I cannot convey how much I appreciate every thing he did. Who would have even thought an attorney would leave his honeymoon, because a DA was trying to pull a fast one? How committed and compassionate could you ever ask for? I think of him often and wonder if he knows how very grateful we are. Thank you are only two words and I could never say them enough, he is absolutely amazing. I would not think twice at putting my life, or the life of my family in his hands.
After the money rolled in M. Cummings basically stopped responding. He lost crucial piece of evidence, showed up for court on wrong date and mailed documents to wrong address on numerous occasions. If you want to be represented by someone who doesn't give a beep about their clients - M.Cummings is your guy
I just feel stupid! I followed the advice of a friend who HIGHLY recommended this firm. I should have researched first to see if this was their expertise. I am grateful that a lawyer is not what I would ever want to be. And to think they get paid for this! So sad it is. Hopefully I will never need to be represented again for this type of thing but if I do, please believe I will make a better choice.
He showed high concern and care for my case. He was very helpful and understanding. I would recommend him to anybody!!
