I endorse this lawyer. Mark is an outstanding lawyer who zealously advocates for his clients. I knew Mark when I was an intern at the District Attorney's Office and now as a fellow criminal defense attorney and I always respected the great work he does. I would highly recommend.

I call Mark a friend and an excellent Criminal Defense Attorney. We are friends because we both served in the Marine Corps. I can see his fire and determination in defending his clients. The same amount of effort he put into serving in the Corps is carried over to Defending his clients. Mark recently assisted me on a DWI case and helped pick a Jury. He knows how to read people. There are many lawyers who give lip service to their clients and do little to nothing. And there are few who actually care and fight. Mark is one of those few.
