I heard of Mark several years ago through a friend. I never got to work with him until recently though - my naturalization process got stalled for no apparent reason. I consulted with Mark on this issue in November 2013. He recommended couple of approached to explore. After trying them out, he ended up taking over the case for a federal court filing. USCIS approved my application within 5 weeks and the case was dismissed.
I found Mark and his staff to be very knowledgeable, trustworthy and efficient. I extremely impressed how quickly the case was resolved. I'd certainly recommend him to anyone with an immigration problem to tackle. Excellent work!

I spent quite a few months looking for an asylum lawyer. I probably talked to more than 15 lawyers and decided to hire Mr. Davidson, because, from the get-go, it was obvious that Mr. Davidson was extremely knowledgeable and experienced in asylum cases.
Now, a few months later, I have my asylum granted. Yaaay! :)
I am sure that, if not for Mr. Davidson, the outcome could have been different. He really helped present a very solid case with well-developed supporting/evidence documents.
I strongly recommend Mr. Davidson to anyone who is seeking help with his/her asylum case. He is very professional, honest, and responsive (although quite succinct in his responses :), as he does tend to focus on important things).

Without Mark I would never had a chance to stay in the U.S. and get my Green Card. My journey started ten years ago and saw no light at the end of the tunnel. Other lawyer who I dealt with only buried me deeper in my unfortunate situation. But he saved me. The only regret I have is that I did not seek his help sooner. Highly experienced, courteous, caring, and straight-shooting professional, Mark Davidson will never give empty promises just to get your money. I encourage everyone looking for an honest attorney, who will do his/her job in good faith, to contact Mr. Davidson.
Dear Mark, you will always have a special place in my life and in my heart and I am forever thankful for having met you!

first of all i would like to say that we really passed over alot of lawyers but we found them only care for fees and pretending to invent a story to won the case regardless the actual case , but Mr.Mark heard us first then he decide to take our case upon he agreed that we saying the truth and facts , we were amused to work with him and his great helpful team , he respond immediately to our inquiries , quite impressed with his knowledge and professionalism , as well we knew by second meeting with him that really we had the best lawyer in Illinois , I read a review that Mr.Mark care for fees ... but what we had went through as any asylum family we still owe him fees even he won our case and got granted in such short time ,,, we still owe him fees and will pay it once get constant job . we owe you our life Mr.Mark and Ylka .
Appreciate your kindness and your great assistance .

We hired Mark as our attorney for green card document review and immigration interview. Though we called him up in the last minute, but he accepted our case without hesitation. Mark is professional, knowledgeable, and is definitely someone you can rely on. The information he provided was very helpful. Most importantly, he gave us peace of mind. I no longer worried after speaking with him. He then informed us what we need in addition to what we already have as evidence, which I have completed ignored the importance of some of them. In a word, I would definitely recommend Mark to our friends for future needs.

My experience with Mark began in 2003. I run a small technology service provider based in Chicago, Over the past 5 years I needed to hire several software developers from eastern Europe, Russia and Ukraine. He helped me take them through the process and was able to successfully culminate each of the three cases with a labor certificate leading to securing a permanent resident status. Currently, Mark is helping me with my wife in a case which involves deportation and we just won a 2 year extension to adjudicate our I-130 petition.
Oh, almost forgot to mention, marked also successfully handled process for my dad's green card.
Based on my interaction with Mark - I recommend him as a highly competent attorney who can handle more than just processing ordinary immigration filings, but also as someone who you need to get involved if you have a tough case with challenging circumstances. For me - it worked every time.

My husband and I met with Mr. Davidson about 4 months ago, heard he was a good lawyer and handled difficult cases successfully so we made an appointment to meet.We talked he said this was a easy case so he gave us a list of things he needed to be sent to him for the case. I got the information as soon as possible. He only returned one of my emails and after that never heard from him. I tried to email him another time and again no response. Im assuming he didnt think we had the money to pay him because of our age and also kept asking about our place of employment etc. if someone hires you its obvious they have the money to pay!!

I had a unique case, my previous lawyer didn't review my files thoroughly, had a mistake in my prior green card application, enough a mistake that I started to worry about losing my current green card.
I started looking for lawyers from illinois bar association, talked to about 8 lawyers before calling Mark, including 4 paid consulting sessions, none of them give me guidance with clear confidence. Then I came across avvo.com and called Mark's office. Mark knows exactly what to do at the first phone call, and handle the entire process with ease. Having a Doctor's degree in engineering myself, I developed respect for a good attorney through this case.
