I thought after my devastating divorce from my ex husband it would be the last I saw of him. Unfortunately it wasn’t and I had to take legal action after an abusive interaction. During a situation which I can only describe as terrifying, I was connected with Mark Haushalter. He walked me through every step so I could get real justice. I don’t think anyone could have helped me like he did. He worked with me even after I became a mess from all the stress. Just writing this review makes me truly emotional. But through all that I have gone against, I can say I have become a stronger person. Having Mark on my side made me feel so safe. He never was condescending and he was always understanding of my circumstances. I can’t think him enough for being on my side. I hope I never am in a situation where I need the help again but I know I would always go back to him.
I want to say it’s a miracle that I am where I am today. After a few unfortunate events I felt like I was between a rock and a hard place. In a situation I never thought I would be in. Luckily, a family member recommended Okabe and Haushalter. What a life changer. When I say I have anxiety about everything it is an understatement, however, Mark was able to put my mind at ease with his knowledge. I swear he has what he does down to a science and I trusted that. I trusted him with my case and I was able to put all the events behind me. I cannot repay him or thank him enough for getting me out of such a tough situation. Thank you Mr. Haushalter! It is needless to say I recommend him wholeheartedly. Put your worries in his hands.
During a time when I felt like no one was on my side, being supported by a team who believed in my case helped keep me from focusing on all the negatives. Mark gave me the best advice and took care of everything throughout the whole process. With his knowledge and experience, I knew my case was in good hands. If someone I know ever needs legal representation, there’s no doubt I will recommend Mark Haushalter.
I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. Mark's help was phenomenal; from walking into the office, to the settlement of my case. I was worried about going to court but Mark was exceptional. His expertise and guidance gave me the peace of mind I needed and I highly recommend working with him.
Mark is an excellent attorney. Not only does he have an exceptional grasp on the legalities of criminal defense, but his understanding of the practical side of the justice system makes him an invaluable lawyer.
I had the unfortunate situation of getting brought to trial for a sex crime over the holidays. I was completely innocent on this case which was extremely mishandled by the investigators involved. With Mark's legal counsel, I was able to quickly get my innocence proven in the court of law and have my reputation remain unscathed.
I hired Mark when I was accused of violating a restraining order. My hearing was at the antelope valley court house. I paid mark $10,000 for my case since my parents are foreigns he took advantage of us and he made me pay him another 10,000 dollars for violating my probation and it was the same case. Mark did keep me out of jail he recommended my parents Rapido bailsbond from Los Angeles and they ripped my parents off by making them pay the full $50,000 bond when they were only supposed to pay $5000. Mark wouldn't come to all my hearings he would tell me to go alone that he would need to charge me 5,000 just to come for the same case. Overall he didn't even take off the restraining order like I wanted him too. Its ok though I'm never using him again.
I hired Mr. Haushalter when I was falsely accused of a very serious and heinous felony I did not commit. Unfortunately Mark Haushalter came on board as my attorney only after my previous attorney had completely botched my whole case and pretrial hearing.
With my future literally hanging in the balance I did copious research online until I found Mark Haushalter of Okabe and Haushalter. Although Mark Haushalter's legal ratings and reputation are among the highest, they barely do him justice. I called Mr. Haushalter on a Saturday morning around 7:00AM to leave a message and convey the urgency of my case, fully expecting a call back on Monday morning. I was shocked when he not only called me back within 10 minutes but agreed to meet me that same morning.
I met with Mark, told him the facts and details of my case and he immediately began constructing a proactive, aggressive plan of defense.
I have never been arrested for, or convicted of anything. I have a completely clean record, but apparently once a case goes past the pretrial it is almost invariably too late to procure a complete dismissal. That being said, Mark Haushalter and his team worked brilliantly. I passed a Polygraph exam which was certified by not one, not two, but three separate agencies; including the L.A County Sheriffs and the LAPD. I took a battery of psychological tests and evaluations, the results of which were all very positive. They brought in an unparalleled and highly respected and credentialed investigator who along with Mark's team completely disassembled and effectively refuted the entire case against me.
I was facing a felony conviction, 10 years in state prison and lifetime registration. My previous attorney had advised me to accept the DA's initial offer of felony conviction, lifetime registration with no prison time.
Mark Haushalter and his team at Okabe and Haushalter got the DA to reduce the charges to simple misdemeanor battery, summary probation and community service.
There is no doubt in my mind that if I had come to Mr. Haushalter from the very beginning, instead of relying on a family recommendation for the other attorney, all charges would have been dropped and the case dismissed.
Mark Haushalter saved my life. I could not recommend him more highly. If you need an attorney, hire the very best: Mark Haushalter of Okabe and Haushalter.
Mark provided me with excellent service and did an excellent job with keep me abreast to my case. I had a DUI case that ultimately could have been worst, but Mark worked his powers and resolved my case in a rapid pace. Thank you for quickly and efficently resolving my case!
Mark saved me from a potentially very bad situation. He kept me informed and was realistic with his goals regarding my case from the beginning. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and I highly recommend this lawyer.
