Mark Williamson has represented me for many years, first as a child going through a custody battle and child support issues, as well as an adult with my own child. I can't begin to explain the amount of confidence I have in him, if you watch him in action you will know why! He has always taken the time to listen to my concerns and will put me at ease with his plan of action or my best option to handle the situation. I have full trust in his entire team, Monica Ofcharick is the definition of 100%.
In the fog of divorce, Mark shines as a beacon of light and delivers beyond expectation; humbly serving with compassion and a sharpened sword, ready for battle. His guidance and attention to detail throughout my divorce is a textbook on leadership in the trenches, protecting with wisdom, clarity and ultimate victory.
Mr. Williamson has been working closely with my case for the past 18 months. His expertise and professionalism has been exceptional through this process. From day one, he promised to protect me and my children, and he delivered on that promise. I am thankful for his compassion and integrity though this extremely difficult process. Do yourself a favor, hire the best! He will meet and exceed your expectations.
After several lawyers and court visits with a highly manipulative spouse, I finally came upon Mark and Monica - the best thing that happened in this whole arduous process. He takes no BS from the opposing counsels as well as my oppressive and abusive spouse and always put them back in their place. His experience along with his calmness and firmness in court, along with his familiarity with the judges and the mediator made all the difference. The best way to put it - he KNOWS this stuff in and out. When dealing with domestic abuse, he even asked for copies of extra information and resource to help him understand and prepare for what we are dealing with. I truly appreciate having them walk alongside me during this process. With their care and compassion, they are knights in shining armor. I wish I had started this process with them in the first place instead of wasting my time and money and energy elsewhere.
Mark was able to see the issues clearly that, as a participant, were not so clear to me. Often, when facing an extreme life change, the insecurities formed in a toxic relationship cloud a person's ability to see their own worth. Mark is able to disallow those insecurities from influencing the task at hand, respond in a courteous and professional manner and step into the role of advocate with a diligence and a directive force that few can muster. His gentle, yet fierce "no nonsense" approach is genuinely respected by his colleagues and everyone who had a part in the process. His yes means yes and his no means no. When Mark and I decided that a course was best, he did all in his power to stay that course and reach the preferred outcome. He is able to do this, all the while guarding his integrity and the families under his care. I had a hard time following the process and even accepting that I was in this situation to begin with. It was confusing and frightening at times. Mark was very calm and knew what had to be done. He never let my fears get in the way of his advocacy for me or my children. We were well served.
There is a detailed packet that is given at the first appointment. This is so helpful. You don't have to try and remember it all yourself. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Mark and his staff are very willing to help. Make notes of all important dates, follow the instructions you receive and tell Mark everything so he can do his job. You won't be disappointed. He is a competent leader in his field and is truly "called" to represent families. He will walk with you during one of the hardest times your family will go through. If you have him as your advocate you have made a very strong decision.
I only had a temporary orders hearing, but Mr. Williamson handled it with great skill, experience and knowledge of the courtroom. He has a great balance of taking charge, while not disrespecting the judge.
I hired Mark a little over a year ago. I had never been through a child custody case before. Mark helped me understand the process. He was clear, honest, direct about what he needed from me. I followed his lead, did some leg work and the results in court were what favorable in my case. Mark is experienced, well groomed, and sharp. Follow him through the process and I believe outcomes are favorable to his methods.
Mark and his paralegal answered my questions quickly and thoroughly. They provided a retainer fee that I could work with as well. I resisted hiring an attorney, but am glad I ended up hiring Mark to represent me.
I'll make it simple. Mark Rush Williamson along with Monica Ofcharik are hands-down the best legal team for family/divorce law in the metroplex, if not the state. Once I gave them my documentation, they told me to let them handle it, and "handle it" they did! Mark's brilliant legal strategy and Monica's expert observation/implementation of details were worth far more than I can even express. To have such upstanding, moral, respected, formidable representation was a wonder and a blessing. Please, Please do not look any further than Mark Rush Williamson. It will change your life!
Mark became my attorney last January! I was weak and meek! He was caring and humble. As Mark and Monica's research began to reveal divorce untruths, they were both blatenly honest, firm, but respectful of the hurt being endured! A memory that has stayed with me is, awhile we were waiting to go to court and he was negotiating with the other side, he somehow read my nervousness and said " Can I see you a minute" (I had my best friends with me) I stepped aside and he looked straight into my eyes and made me look at him and said "Don't look over there! Youre strong and I've got this!" At that moment I got my "Roar" back, Katy Perry Style. Didn't have to step into court! Negotiation went our way! Of course it did!! Through this unfortunate process, Mark & Monica have continued to help me move forward with the same passion & confidence that they have for their work and I have for them!
