Mark promised to get me out of a potential license suspension ticket. It would have brought me to 12 points and I would have potentially lost my job because of it. He met with me, told me exactly what would happen and that I did not even need to show up for my court date. For the reasonable price he offered he took care of all the heartache, stress, and work. I would recommend mark to anyone I know that has a criminal or traffic pending case. I have never used a lawyer before and was worried about the financial costs and headache I previously thought came with it. Mark made the whole process less than 30 minutes all together and easier than I could have ever imagined.

It is hard to know where to begin with Atty Mark Gardner. Simply put, he's a stand up guy. Yes, he is trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable and "present" in the case. More than that, I really did/do feel I can trust him with that which is most precious to me--the ability to exercise my freedom to live my life unencumbered by the restrictions that could have been imposed and wrongfully so. For THAT, I thank God everyday for putting Atty Gardner in my life to help navigate my legal situation. Having said that...
Mark Gardner is, indeed, an excellent attorney. He is upfront and honest about what you can expect with him as well as the legal system and why. He understands that the other side IS NOT on your side and makes you understand that, too. He keeps you informed of next steps, what YOU need to do to help him help you, what NOT to do to hurt yourself and is always, always, always serious in the handling of your situation. He possesses something most attorneys don't--something most people don't and that is compassion. Any time extensions were requested or anything occurred that was unexpected in the timeline, Atty Gardner always let me know and let me know why. I was never kept in the dark about a single aspect of the case. I always knew what he knew. He knew what I knew because HE LISTENS. That is so important. Making no assumptions, Atty Gardner neither judges nor jumps to conclusions.
When you hire an attorney for a criminal matter or a DUI/OVI matter, you are very much putting your life in their hands. Your freedom is on the line and Mark Gardner is someone who can be trusted to defend your interests--be those interests yours or a loved one's.

Mark handled my OVI case with great care and ended up getting an awesome outcome with the OVI dropped. I recomend him to all. Great, smart guy with a lot of useful life wisdom for all walks of life.

Mark was very knowledgeable about my case and the options available to me. When all was said and done the best possible option for me was obtained due to Mark management of my case. He kept me very informed and always answered my concerns. I would recommend Mark in the future.

Attorney Gardner successfully litigated an expungement of my criminal record. This attorney really stays on the ball in communicating with his clients. In my case, his thorough knowledge of legal amendments made the difference between success and failure of my case. Even though I had knowledge of his participation in much more serious cases (from secondary sources) during my case, he did not show any preferential treatment towards the lower level of seriousness in my case. Therefore, this attorney seems to be very well-rounded and an excellent choice for anyone needing counsel in criminal law matters.

Mr. Gardner took care of a speeding case which involved a warrant. 90 mph in a 65 was the charge, Mr. Gardner had it reduced to 74mph which ended up being a no point offense, had the warrant recalled the same day and ended all of my fears related to this case with little effort on my part, I didn't even have to appear in court (which was my biggest fear). Very easy to get a hold of, without a doubt Mr. Gardner is simply the easiest attorney to get a hold of that I’ve ever used. Case resolved thanks to Mr. Gardner. Would highly recommend him.

Mark is direct, straightforward and demanding as an advocate and problem-solver. Not only did he resolve my immediate situation, he also prompted me to become a better driver and citizen. Thank you, Mark!
