Mark Milavitz is a great Criminal Defense lawyer. I hired Mark for a federal criminal case. He is a very straight foward lawyer that looks out for the good of his clients. I would recommend hiring him for any criminal case.
Posted by a Divorce client,
Marc handled my divorce case (which should have been as simple as an emotion charged event like a divorce can be - liquid assets, no children, single family home, etc.). However, because of the specific issues involving my ex-spouse, it was an incredibly difficult, challenging, time consuming and frustrating process. Marc was appropriately sympathetic, pragmatic, creative and extremely timely. He provided wise counsel and opinions and was dedicated to trying to keep the entire divorce process on track in spite of all the obstacles we faced (which were substantial). He was never late for any meeting, court appearance or filing. I would recommend Marc without hesitation.

Marc has not only helped me with a situation I found myself in, but I have referred him to several friends and they have had nothing but outstanding things to say about him. He made himself accessible and I feel he bent over backwards to help me. He was always willing to answer my phone calls and corresponded with me in an extremely timely fashion. I will continue to use his services if needed and continue to refer him to others.

Marc did a great job defending me against a very serious charge. He worked with me numerous hours, found experts in various fields to assist with my case, and was very thorough in the courtroom. He is strait-forward and honest; as well as a nice guy. If it wasn't for Marc, I would be in prison today. Don't hesitate to hire Marc.

I have a very hard time believing the other review on this site. I hired Marc about a year ago to help me with some charges that were leveled against me. They were false, but I had never had an experience remotely like this (I am a 63-year old professional) and the stress on me and my family was horrible. Imagine a very bad dream that doesn't go away when you wake up.
From the very first time I talked to him over the phone, he was very professional, taking time to educate me on what we had ahead of us. He told me the good stuff, he told me the bad stuff. He was very reassuring, which is something I really needed. After I hung up I felt that "someone was on my side".
"DIdn't show up"?? I never knew him to be LATE for any of our many hearings or personal meetings. To think of him not showing up for anything is just not possible. He would frequently call me out of the blue to see how I was doing and how my family was doing. This guy cares, believe me.
Being on trial, accused of things that are not true, is no picnic, believe me. However, he was there for me the whole way, explaining our position to me as he provided a vigorous and thorough defense.
Long story short, after going through the trial and being found not guilty, I cannot recommend him highly enough. If, God forbid, you find yourself in my position I can't think of an attorney I would rather have by my side.
