    Saved my career

    As a graduate student hoping to work at a university someday, having a criminal record would put a serious damper on my career. I called Marc the day after I was arrested for a DUI, and he answered (on a Saturday) and gave me a consultation over the phone and committed to appearing at my initial court appearance which was just a few days later. Marc is skilled in searching for weaknesses in the state's case. After viewing the police tapes and noticing some inconsistencies in the breathalyzer test, Marc motioned to suppress my breathalyzer test, which was successful. I was immediately impressed with his confidence in the court room and his attention to detail. He is charismatic but firm, which will help any defendant's case. Marc gave great advice as the process went along, and remained confident in his ability to get me the best case scenario. He kept me informed and even advocated for court appearances to work with my schedule as I am busy with school and lived out of state. Eventually, with no breathalyzer and little evidence to convict me, I was able to get all charges dismissed, which will save my career. I would recommend Marc to anyone in a similar situation. Marc is personable, skilled at explaining legal jargon, well versed on DUI trials, will give his honest opinion of every situation, and will do his absolute best to secure the best possible outcome.

    Excellent choice for a lawyer

    Marc is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He took care of my case with extreme concern, excellent communication, and commitment. He always let me know where I stood and took care of everything for me the entire way. His friendly, non-pretentious demeanor made me feel comfortable from the get-go. My results in court were better than I ever could have expected. I recommend him 100% - you can't go wrong with Marc Lopez on your side. Call him and find out for yourself what a truly unique and hard-working lawyer he is.

    No council

    I was fully informed of how we were going to fight my dui. I never saw Mr. Lopez in court because he sent his assistant everytime. They took the first plea bargain thrown at them and did not fight for any changes. A public defender could have done the same work.

    You definitely want Marc on your side

    Long story short I was out of town for an event which I rarely take part in as I spend most of my time working 60-70 hours a week. I loose recalection as to what happened the majority of the night and I come back to shortly before I am arrested. Not knowing what is going on I am pretty frightened so I immediately upon leaving jail after 2 days start researching looking for the best lawyer I can find. One of the lawyers I come across is Marc and ultimately I choose to go with him. It took a day or two for them to figure out if I was charged and with what and finally they come up with dui, resisting x2, and leaving the scene of an accident. Mind you this accident happened to be a police cruiser . Marc assured me everything would be find as I was not used to these situations as I had never been in trouble before. Marc fought to the end for me to the point that we were 2 days from a jury trial when the prosecutor finally gave in and offered to drop dui and one resisting, leaving me with 2 mistimeanor charges and only 1 yr of non reporting probation and nothing else. Marc is a great guy who loves what he does and will never give up on you. If you are every unlucky enough to be in this situation you can't risk having anything less than Marc Lopez on your side.

    Marc is an incredibly knowledgable attorney, who was able to get me the best possible outcome in my case.

    I was referred to Marc by a friend after being arrested for a OWI with some special circumstances. I knew I didn't want to risk just picking an attorney I knew nothing about as I was facing multiple charges, including a D Felony. Marc called me immediately after receiving my information. He listened to me, and what my situation was and immediately came up with a plan. I felt like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders having him on my side. I had never dealt with law enforcement or the court system before but Marc explained everything clearly along the way. He got me the best possible outcome. Allowed me to avoid jail time, and have non reporting probation. If you are fighting an OWI charge I would highly recommend Marc.

    Thank you Marc!

    This was my first and only arrest. Marc made what is an extremely stressful and confusing process very manageable. From our first conversation, he informed me what steps I needed to make to best serve my case. He was timely in answering any questions I had along the way. Moreover, he was always honest with me about my chances but continued to talk me through all potential options as well. Marc held up his part of the deal too, having a discovery done on the machine that I blew into at the station. Following through on the steps Marc asked me to take and the results of this discovery were instrumental in the outcome of my case.
    In my particular case, there was very little in the way of disputing that I had done something wrong and in the end took a plea agreement negotiated by Marc and his team. I received next to no probation, reduced fines, and I will be able to get my license back 90 days earlier than originally expected.
    Everyone on Marc's team, down to the receptionist, is extremely pleasant to work with. He was recommended to me by a friend, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is facing DUI charges.

    Great Experience With Marc Lopez

    I retained Mr Lopez as my attorney 2-3 years ago after having a drug possession incident. He helped me find a safe way out of the situation with no charges. In February of this year (2014) I was faced with a much more serious accusation against me (I would rather not go into details). I didn't know what to do so I gave Mr Lopez a call having remembered him from before. He immediately stepped in and knew exactly what to do. He saved me from getting myself into more trouble. The following weeks he kept in frequent contact with me about the situation and made sure that no one was unlawfully contacting me. I felt that I had a million questions and he was always happy to answer in a very informative and in-depth way. He was very reassuring and supportive while also being up front and honest. I highly recommend his services

    Remarkably the best decision of my life.... To Hire the Best, Mr. Marc!!!!!!!

    I would give 10 *'s if AVVO gave me an option. I know many of you reading this review may think am Crazy. It's hardly been minutes i got the news from Mr. Marc that my case got dismissed with no convictions at all and the bonus being ( Without my presence for Trial). I'm so glad I hired Mr. Marc. I was really clueless about my case as I was a non-immigrant when I had these bad charges( total 3 charges) on me during 2004.. and I left the US during the bail and Pre-trial period and the charges remained open and attached with a warrant out for my arrest. I decided to sort these things out and have a clean record and looked up other websites too and trust me after reading the reviews on AVVO. I decided this is the kind of person (Aggressive, Prompt and Fair). Just in 2 months he got the case dismissed, keeping in mind my ability to not be able to attend the trial. Am sooo thankful for your services.

    Best Lawyer In Town.... Excellent !!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I contacted Mr. Lopez at the worst time in my life when detectives started showing up at my door and then I was arrested. Him and his team immediately started working on my case and was there to answer my phone calls with any question I had and made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. He blew me away in front of the judge in the court with his vast data base of knowledge and how passionate he was about my case and how much time and effort he put into proving my innocence. He was always there for court and calling me to make sure I knew where to go and what time and kept me very up to date on what was going on with my case. In my case he proved I was innocent and I got my life back. I would recommend Mr. Lopez to anyone with any case. He is beyond excellent in what he does. I thank God for finding him.

    My first time hiring an attorney and I chose a great one.

    Well I got into trouble back in 2008 and tried to fight the case using a public defender and of course I lost but this time I got into trouble which was a little worst than before so I start searching for an attorney I didn't know the first thing about hiring a good one so I asked around and a friend of mine referred me to Mark López this guy is a honest dude and he have helped me in so many ways and still helps me today with things and he beat my case, I would definitely recommend this guy to anyone who needs a lawyer and I must add that his price was reasonable and he worked with me until I paid him off he is a very understanding guy if you be honest with him.
