One year ago I found myself to be in a position that everyone dreads. I was a first time parent and just in the beginning stages of a seperation from my child's father. I was scared and needed help. I was referred to Mark from a friend and from the very beginning Mark was straight forward and honest. He let me know that this wasn't going to be easy, it may be long, but he would fight as hard as he could to get what is rightfully mine and to most importantly protect my son. Just speaking with him that first meeting, he just seemed trustworthy. After consulting with my family we hired him and he didn't waist anytime on getting started. With in minutes of me stepping out of his office he had paperwork ready for me to sign to get the ball rolling to serve the other party. Throughout this whole entire process Mark was very quick at responding back to any of my questions, concerns and was very good at easing any of my fears. When it came time for the court hearings, Mark knew my case from top to bottom. He took his time and made my opening letters to the Judge very personal and touching. In the court room he is a relentless bulldog! He wiped the floor with my ex's attorney and In that moment I couldn't have been happier with my decision. I was so nervous because I had heard my ex bought some "hotshot" lawyer, but Mark set my worries at bay. That lawyer was stumbling over his words, didn't even know his case entirely and a few times, I looked over and seen my ex's mouth drop and looks of shear terror. Priceless.
In any event the whole process took one year, it was pricey, but well worth it. My son's father had a substance abuse problem and refused to help us after he left for someone else, while I was six months pregnant. So, my main concern during this whole thing was the protection of my son while under his care.
In the end, my ex gets to see my son every other weekend for 4 hrs and when my ex would like his visits expanded to overnight weekends, he has to prove 6 months worth of clean hair tests first. I can then random him at anytime I am suspicious. He must pay monthly child support and half the daycare expenses too.
I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Mark is secretly my knight in shining armor. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, he is money well spent! Thank you Hardy Law group! Tracy you are always so kind and sweet! Tina for being so prompt and so nice! But most of all thank you Mark, you are amazing! Now, this is over I am looking forward to a new beginning with my son. Life couldn't be better!

I met Mark in December when he filed my divorce, and then I left the state. I didn't really have a chance to get to know Mark, but I trusted him with my case. For the next 7 months Mark was never to busy to answer my emails, and to explain the various steps ahead. How many attorneys are REALLY sincere in listening to a client going through the grief process of a divorce? Mark listened, gave me support and true compassion. Very rare in an attorney. There are too many bad ones out there, pick Mark

Mark was on top of things in terms of my case, keeping me informed of conversations with the opposing party's attorney, going over options of what our next move should be and letting me ultimately decide which avenue to take. He has good guidance and knowledge of the law. Mark will have your back, a good guy to have in your corner in stressful, legal situations when clients don't normally think too clearly.

Mark has been a part of my painstaking legal case since 2004. It has been a case frought with every sort of family law issue I could imagine. He has steadfastly stuck with this case and me throughout the years, offering sound advice and a calm demeanor in what has often been the most stressful period of my life. My oldest just turned 18 and only 4 more years must I be involved with this ongoing saga and I couldn't have asked for a better more diligent attorney to steer me through the "muck" of my divorce and ongoing legal battles. I hope noone has to go through what I and my girls have had to endure but if they do, you need a good attorney by your side. Although I probably forget to say "thank you" often enough, I am greatly thankful for Mark and his fantastic support team.

Mark is very easy to work with. He is extremely efficient, and I always felt like my best interests were always represented. I had a hopeless situation that he expeditiously set to rights. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Mark is very intelligent and really knows all of the ins and outs of family law. We were extremely lucky to have found him. He terminated parental rights and grandparents visitation for us. As well as doing two adoptions for us.
