In 2014, Mark Steven Avila successfully represented me in a difficult, employment-related lawsuit made all the more challenging by the nuanced nature of the case. I had never before been involved in any type of litigation and Mr. Avila was very effective at providing guidance and coaching through what proved to be an extremely trying experience. Mr. Avila operates at a high level of skill and integrity-- vital for success and for establishing trust and confidence. His reassuring degree of engagement in the case was evident through his many questions and the extensive information he asked me to provide. During the many months he worked on my case, I observed the following: a tireless attention to detail, an impressive ability to connect the dots (often obscured and/or seemingly unrelated dots), an insightful understanding of the "big picture," a keen memory, pleasant interpersonal skills, and-- above all-- a commanding knowledge of the law. At all times, I felt that Mr. Avila prioritized my case. He was honest and straightforward in his communications, and was adept at establishing and maintaining a productive relationship with opposing counsel. I feel fortunate to have been represented by Mr. Avila and enthusiastically recommend his legal services.
Mark handled my Sexual Harrassment case. He was very caring, knowledgeable and truly fought on my behalf. If you want someone that will really fight for you then Mark is the Attorney for you. When going through something as traumatic as that you need someone that cares about their client and is passionate about their work.
I had a wrongful termination due to a disability and found the law office of Avila and Shaddow to be very knowledgeable, proactive, and upfront with how they communicated what they can and cannot do in my case. They were always informed and a step ahead in my case. I found them to be compassionate and aggressive with a fire to succeed which proved to be a winning combination. The results turned out to be more than I expected. I had interview other lawyers before I had Avila and Shaddow represent me and I can attest to the fact that I made the right decision.
