Mark has represented me on over 6 cases and have had all of the tossed out some multiple times. He is one person and I agree the office at times can be very bad at communication they handle thousands of cases. Nobody is funding him for all these 2DCA and other cases he does them for you the home owner. You get what you pay for and every person including myself has never paid Mark more than his standard fee under 2k a year and that's not even. Retainer that other lawyers charge. You don't get nickel And dimed I have a lawyer who charges $70 just to send me a email,! If Mark needs to talk with you he does but in the end he can't help everybody if he is stuck talking to clients. I have never met. Person who spends more of his own free time and actually cares than any lawyer I have met. Mark is not perfect but he is helping so many so before you throw a stone ask yourself if you are helping the thousands he is and with As far as I can see the best record in the country. I also give kudos to Matt Weidner for his dedication.
Mark has gotten my case thrown out of court twice(dismissed) He is so knowledgeable about this field.
I would never even think about hiring anyone else.My business is doing great know and I'm back on my feet.I would have been homeless without him.Mark also is very reasonable with his fees.Give him a call he even answers his cell phone for clients.Stopa Law firm is more of a family than a factory.I highly recommend them.Great people.
I hired Mark Stopa Law firm to represent me in a Foreclosure Case. They required 6 checks totaling 2000.00 I was never able to speak to Mark Stopa. It was impossible to contact his office and have any questions answered. All he did was file a motion to delay hearing. I never heard anything from them again. I canceled my future checks. I fired them. They continued to cash my checks , I had to put stop payments on them. I demanded a refund of my last check cashed. They have ignored me and have not refunded my money. This is absolutely the worst Law Firm!!! Please DO NOT use this Attorney.
One of the biggest mistakes that I made was calling Mark Stopa Law Firm. There is absolutely no communication from the firm. I have never seem Mark Stopa's smiling face in person and you would think that the lawyer would at least look at you in person. When I asked to have a meeting with him, I was told by a member of his staff that I didn't pay enough. If you hire this lawyer, I give you my sympathy.
The Stopa Attorneys are fair, dedicated and hard working advocates, who are personable and understanding. They indeed place the needs of their clients "first" as they provide you with a keen sense of their competency and professionalism. My family and I are very grateful to have the Stopa Law firm handling our legal affairs at a very difficult time in our lives. I would definitely recommend STOPA law Firm.
Thank You Mark Stopa & Associates!
I would highly recommend STOPA Law firm. I hired them initially because they were one of the first to contact me, by mail, with a very professional and comprehensive pamphlet of their services. I followed up with a review of their website (which I found to be informative and gave me a sense of confidence in their work) and then called them. They were very helpful with my initial concerns/questions and worked with me on payments for their fee. Throughout they have been helpful in answering brief questions and concerns. I just recently renewed an annual contract with them. I recommend you read the website and Mark Stopa's blog to get a sense of their efforts.
Mark is the BEST FORECLOSURE ATTY in the business.
He has gotten my case dismissed twice and his firm secured me a great loan mod with a principle reduction and an interest rate reduction.He didn't rip me off with excessive fees.Love this firm and Guy.Hire him ASAP.The best money i have ever spent.
I realize that he had a misconduct mark against him but he apparently diligently fights for this clients, which is what I want. His rates are also within the fair ballpark. Realizing there are 5-6 hours of work for the year his rates are within the realistic $250 - $300/HR range as opposed to other attorneys - when you figure it out they are actually charging about $1,000/HR which is totally rediculous
I hired Mark Stopa in 2010 to represent me after having a previous attorney, who I was not happy with in how he was representing me. Today I am still in my house thanks to Mark. It has been 6 years and Mark has helped me to stay in my home now, which has helped me greatly. I went through an unfortunate time 6 years ago when I lost my job, and the bank was not willing to work with me, but thanks to Mark, he has given me the ability to stay in my home and get back to work. Mark is a great lawyer and I recommend him highly to anyone that needs one.
Mark knows the foreclosure process. I could not be happier with the job he has done for me. He doesn't hold your hand but if its possible to get a foreclosure dismissed he is the man to do it. Highly recommended.
