After exhausting all options, my lawyer recommended that I hire Mark Thiessen as the prosecution was not budging. I honestly didn't think I had much of chance of winning as they had a .25 blood test but I am CPA and I didn't want to lose my license therefore I hired Mark. The prosecution still would not work a deal so we went to trial. Mark is a true expert when it comes to DWIs as he was able to out argue the prosecution in everything they threw at him. He also poked several holes during cross examination of the nurse who administered the blood and the arresting officer. The arresting officer admitted at the end of cross examination that I did not lack the mental or physical capabilities to drive which meant he didn't have probable cause to arrest me. The case was thrown out the next day due to this. I honestly believe that Mark is the most talented person I have ever met any profession. Although not cheap, I believe he is worth every penny and I would have even paid more.
I was arrested for DWI in March of last year. I am a young professional who's never been in trouble a day in my life before this happened to me. I honestly thought I was doomed after a .17 breath test. A friend recommended a short list of lawyers to me who I all met with. I ended up going with Mark after reading all of the great reviews on him and checking out his impressive list of notable victories. From the beginning Mark was adamant that we should go to trial which gave me hope. I had to wait 11 months before my day in court but thanks to Mark's expertise my case was dismissed mid-trial! Watching him question all of the officers that testified at my trial was seriously amazing. Once you see him in action you see how skilled, charismatic, and talented he is. He was able to show how none of the officers knew what they were talking about and how many mistakes they made. Because of this my case got dismissed and didn't even have to go to the jury to decide my fate. I honestly have doubt any other lawyer could have gotten me these results. I would without a doubt say Mark is the best DWI lawyer in Houston. I asked A LOT of questions, and Mark was always patient and very responsive to me. I could call/text him anytime I had questions. I am soooo glad to finally be putting this behind me. He really got me my life back. Mark, you the real MVP!
I was charged with a DWI April of last year. I had a breath test result of 1.4 and 1.6. Twice the legal limit!! I was worried and scared about losing my freedom and of having a criminal charge follow me around for the rest of my life!! My husband found Mark Thiessen by Google searching " THE BEST DWI ATTORNEY IN HOUSTON" ! And I can honestly say that title is more than fitting!
Mark was educated on not only the Science and procedure behind my DWI arrest, but he knew all of the individuals and had personal relationships ( from his many previous DWI cases in Harris county ) with both the arresting DWI task force officer as well as the Expert :breath test machine witness , brought by the DA before the jury. His candid exchange with these individuals on the stand was damning to say the least!!
His experience was invaluable in my jury trial!
But what set Mark apart from other attorneys in my mind , was the passion in which he fought my case! From the day I hired him, to the day I was found NOT GUILTY by a jury of my peers, he fought passionately at every turn for my freedom!!
He never backed down to the DA and their immoral and corrupt practices!! He stood in that courtroom and fought for my future : the way I would have, the way a friend or family member would have!! He made it clear both thru his words as well as his actions that losing was NOT AN OPTION!!
I cannot say enough good things about Mark! But if you are reading this now, and wondering who YOU should hide to defend you and YOUR future ....YOUR freedom...
I honestly believe you need look no further!! Let Mark Thiessen give you YOUR LIFE BACK!
I was recently pulled over and charged with a DUI. Like most people would be, I was very confused as to what my rights were. I was put in contact with Mark by a very good friend of my. In my first meeting with Mark he told me exactly how he would go about defending me in this case. Mark has always made himself available to me and responded as fast as possible to any questions or concerns that I had regarding my case. Mark is very knowledgeable and extremely trustworthy. During the process Mark and his office always kept me well informed about my case. Mark has gone above and beyond what I expected out of a lawyer. I would have no hesitation recommending his services to anyone. I am 100% satisfied with both Mark and his office.
I've had the best experience with Mark Thiessen! He was not only professional, but trustworthy, confident, and knowledgeable. Mark was very thorough and listened to all my concerns and questions which made me feel very comfortable during a difficult process. I would strongly recommend Mark to any of my friends as he is the best attorney I've worked with by far!
Mark is a truly stellar attorney, who certainly deserves his rising star status and the too many to count rave reviews. I have worked in the legal industry on both sides as a paralegal for many years, for many types of lawyers and I can say without a doubt he is the best. He is intelligent, smart, hardworking and down to earth without being judgmental, demeaning or condescending to anyone no matter their status, position or situation. He DOES NOT stop until he gets the result he was seeking. He also doesn't like no for an answer. He works extremely hard to get his clients a favorable result each and every time. I have used his services personally and am without a doubt pleased beyond words with his relentless work in getting me my dismissal and expungement done swiftly. He not only got the results I was seeking he brought comfort, eliminated worry and made an unbearable, unthinkable, undeserved situation manageable while removing the distrust, anxiety and anger typically associated with situations needing his assistance. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I meet in need of representation as he is the BEST at what he does. You can't go wrong with Mark, you can go wrong with many others. Don't waste your time or your hard earned resources....as the saying goes you do really get what you pay for. Take it from me - don't delay, hire Mark Thiessen TODAY!
My name is Michael & I'm a 19 year old college student with a big future ahead of him. Back in April of 2014 I chose to drive while intoxicated and I put myself in jail by doing so. My BAC was 0.16 twice the limit and I had very little hope for my future to come. Well in November of the same year, I went to court fearing that I would be put behind bars, put on probation, have a huge fine, or much worse. Well Mark managed to paint a beautiful picture to the Judge allowing him to acknowledge my age, future, and guilt. By doing so, the judge gave me 1 year license suspension, no fine, no jail time, no probation. Now leading up to the case Mark managed to keep me feeling positive about the outcome do to his confidence, attitude, ambition, knowledge, and frankly the man knew what he was doing. Needless to say, I'm very pleased that I chose Mark Theissen to represent me, as I would recommend him to anyone in the same troubles as I was.
Well what can I say except that Mark Thiessen is the best lawyer in town. You won't find anyone more knowledgable or caring in Houston. From my experience he hit a grand slam for my case. I have had contact with a lot of clients of Mr. Thiessen and every single person has said the same thing. He has nothing but respect for his clients. As I said in the title he is literally the only lawyer you will ever want on your side. With him as my attorney I had no doubt that I would be treated with the utmost respect. Hopefully I won't get in to trouble again. But if it so happens he will be the first person I contact. I can't say enough of how satisfied I am having him on my side fighting for my rights as a citizen.
I am a professional and my life could have been easily ruined by my .24 blood results. Mark was nothing short of magic in the way he prepared for trial, connected with the jury, knew the science behind the test results better than the prosecutor and experts, and summed up complex arguments in a simple way. The jury returned a not guilty result in record time. He was worth every penny I spent. I couldn't put a price on my freedom and my future that he helped get back for me.
I recommend Mark Thiessen without hesitation. He is simply the best.
I can't say enough kind words about Mark Thiessen. From the moment I hired him I could tell he would fight for my freedom, and let me tell you he did! Not only was he a beast in the courtroom, but he also kept me up-to-date on everything, which gave me peace of mind that I picked the right lawyer to represent me. I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and he was so knowledgeable on the subject that I trusted him wholeheartedly throughout the whole process. I ended up being found not guilty and I truly believe it was because of my representation. Without Mark, I don't know where my life would be. All I can say is thank you Mark Thiessen for getting my life back!
To anyone looking for a great criminal defense attorney, go with Mark Thiessen. He has only your best interest in mind, is responsive, is very, very knowledgeable and simply the best in the courtroom!
