Mark was recommeded by a close friend who is a lawyer herself. From our first meeting with him we were put at ease by his professionalism, listening skills, and the adept manner with which he saw the heart of the Problem. Working with him was simple. He did not complicate the matter and delivered sound advice. I highly recommend Mark.

I recently hired Mark Blane to represent my daughter in a personal injury lawsuit and I was extremely impressed with both the results of the case and my interactions with Mr. Blane.
Mr. Blane is trustworthy, a straight shooter who will provide you with the tools that you need to succeed. Mr. Blane has your personal interest at heart 100% of the time. If Mr. Blane feels that you are better off representing yourself, not only will he tell you so, but he will advise you on how to proceed. Mr. Blane's empathy and compassion was a relief after the experiences had which led to our meeting.
I was extremely impressed with Mr. Blane's responsiveness throughout the case. I was always able to get a hold of Mr. Blane and he responded to emails and phone calls quickly. This is very important in a personal injury case because there is a lot of information and updates that need to be exchanged (i.e. hospital bills, photos, etc.). Mr. Blane's responsiveness and organization undoubtedly helped me to get a favorable outcome in this case.
Mr. Blane kept me informed throughout the process, which was very helpful considering this was the first time I was involved in a personal injury lawsuit. Mr. Blane informed me on how negotiations were progressing, and his candid feedback as to how I should proceed was greatly appreciated. Mr. Blane was a compass in the complex legal environment, and I had full faith and confidence in his abilities to perform.
From the first time I met Mr. Blane it was clear that he was very knowledgeable and well respected in his field. Mr. Blane has been successful in representing clients in personal injury cases for many years, so his track record speaks for itself. There were no surprises in my case because Mr. Blane adequately prepared me for the road ahead. This includes meeting me at the bank post settlement and ensuring that funds were deposited into the appropriate account for my daughter.
Thank you for going above and beyond and all that you have done for our family!

Mark has represented me several times. He did an outstanding job each time. His knowledge and ability to deal with every aspect of these cases was impressive. He is especially adept at working with insurance reps and getting significant reductions in medical payouts, which means a better settlement for the client.
I have to say I was very impressed with his performance and attention to each case. I highly recommend him and will call him first if the need ever arises. Thank you again Mark!

I am very happy with the way my case was handled, first when I spoke to Mark Blane over the phone he made an appointment to come see me at my home to discuss the case. I was then sent to a chiropractor by Mark Blane. Another good experience, I did not have to worry about having to deal with the headache of having to deal with the other persons insurance, as Mark Blane took care of all the issues and medical bills that I had received to contacting them. As well as giving me advice to handling some of the medical bills. Overall he did a great job and left the stress out for me . Thank you again for your service.

Mark Blane handled my first auto accident in 2006. So, when I was involved in another auto accident in 2012, I knew to call him right away. Giving the case to Mark took all the pressure off of me to talk to insurance adjusters and medical billing companies. His vast knowledge and experience allowed optimal results in my settlement. He is fair and trustworthy. If I ever had reason to, I would definitely work with him again. I have and will recommend Mark Blane as an attorney.

Mark Blane is calm, knowledgeable and personable. At our inital meeting he reassured us, gave us an information packet with his background and experience and what to expect, and explained each step of the process. Mark patiently answered all of our questions. He is thorough in his fact gathering; contacting us when he needed more details or clarification, and an excellent negotiator on our behalf. Mark Blane made himself accessible throughout, which gave us peace of mind. We are very pleased with the great case results and highly recommend his services.

Mark worked with me on a case that required a very long process and ten parties. He was thorough, honest and very responsive. Due to the fact that there were so many parties involved, the case took a long time to complete but the whole time, Mark was on top of it. He provided updates even when there was not a change which I very much appreciated and he was so professional. I don't know that I could recommend someone better to represent you.

I hired Mark after being involved in a motor vehicle accident with a Taxi cab, where I sustained whiplash and herniated disc injuries. Mark's main concern was my health and well being during the entire process. Above all else, my medical care came first. Mark understood my wellness goals and how the accident effected my career as a massage therapist. We got a generous settlement and the timing was perfect! Mark worked hard to close our case and hand delivered our settlement check the day before we moved out of State. He is clear and concise and easy to talk to. I have recommended Mark to friends and will continue to do so.

Our family would like to share some thoughts about Attorney Mark Blane. We want to begin by expressing how deeply grateful we are to him for all of his hard work. It has been an honor to have met and hired Attorney Mark Blane. Mark Blane is an Excellent Attorney. He has an extensive knowledge of the law. He is compassionate, thoughtful and considerate. When we speak of Attorney Mark Blane and try to describe who he is, the words Integrity, Honorable and Man of Good Character are the words we use.
On July 6, 2011 our 81 father returned a rental car and was given a ride back to the Trolley and bus station in Old Town by a shuttle van. After our dad departed the shuttle and got to the sidewalk, he was struck in the head and back by a crossing bar at the trolley station. It had become dislodged after the shuttle van broke it. Our dad suffered a brain bleed, cracked open head, several fractures in his back and much much more.
Attorney Mark Blane obtained the video of the accident, obtained all medical records and bills incurred as a result of the accident, dealt with the insurance company, and defense attorney. Because of the settlement Attorney Mark Blane negotiated, our dad will not have to worry about financial issues anymore. Our dad will receive the best care he needs...at home where he wants to be.

We found Attorney Mark Blane by doing an internet search on "The best child injury attorney in San Diego" and his name was the first to display which made him our first and best choice we ever made. Our son was injured at his daycare due to negligence. We consulted Atty. Blane and he gladly accepted to represent our son's case. He was highly committed, always keeping us informed and meticulous/detailed with his work that we felt very secure and at ease during the whole process while he was working with us. We greatly appreciate everything he has done for our son and would highly recommend his excellent service.

I wasn't sure what to expect after my friend and I had been rear-ended causing neck injuries to the both of us but my friend had dealt with Mark in the past and highly recommended him. We both used him on our case and throughout the entire process Mark was extremely expedient in communicating with all parties and keeping us up to date with the latest news on the case via phone and e-mail contact. Mark will be the only person I call if I have another injury case.

When I first contacted Attorney Mark Blane he was prompt in calling me back and was very kind about meeting me whenever and wherever, he made it very convenient in meeting my needs. Mark got right on my case immediately, he settled my case in less than a year and got me a good settlement, he was also fair with his charges. I will recommend Attorney Mark Blane for representation and I have. He will work hard for you, because he cares. Attorney's should care about their clients and get back to them in a timely fashion when trying to reach your Attorney, well you can count on Mark to get back with you as promptly as possible. Hire Mark Blane, you'll be glad that you did. Look no further, Mark is the one!!!

Mark Blane is the most professional attorney I have met or worked with at any point in my career. He is able to settle cases in a timely manner and takes all of the work/worry away from the client.
Posted by Devin, a Personal Injury client, Flag
After I was rear-ended and my car was totaled, I was referred to Mr. Blane by a co-worker who utilized his legal services in her own personal injury case. Mark was very informative in our initial meeting and explained what I should expect throughout the personal injury claims process. He kept me informed throughout the case and was very helpful with any questions I had. Ultimately, he was able to negotiate a fair settlement for my bodily injury, medical expenses, time off work, etc.
As luck would have it, my wife and I I were rear-ended again just recently, and Mark is in the process of handling a new case for us. I highly recommend Mr. Blane for representation in any personal injury claim.
Posted by Janna, a Car Accident client, Flag

Late 2011, I was hit by a car that ended up leaving the scene. The police found him and made a report. To make things short, I didn't know what to do since this is he first time this has happened to me. I contacted Mark Blane who assured me everything was going to be ok and guided me every step of the way. Mark Blane is the attorney to go.

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Blane. He was patient and explained the various aspects of my case. He did a great job keeping me up to date with his communication with the insurance company. I have recommended him to others and would definitely hire him again.
Posted by Russell, a Motorcycle Accident client, Flag
Mark Blane was the most thorough and professional attorney I have ever had any interaction with. In a case where I had no independent witnesses and not much hope of even recovering my hospital bills; Mr. Blane negotiated a settlement that not only covered those bills but paid for treatment by an amazing chiropractor and compensated me for pain /suffering! Amazing job.
Posted by Lilia Casillas, a Personal Injury client, Flag
I was in a scared and fragile moment in my life. I had just been released from the hospital after a months time and Mark made it really easy to make me feel comfortable, informed, and most importantly, at ease.
There is no question that the experience you are going through is hard enough as it is, but knowing that you can count on at least one person to be on your side and is handling your case with integrity, makes you feel secure that it will be handled properly, efficently, and precisely.
I would recommend Mark's business services to anyone in need of a lawyer to handle your case with care and understanding.

I have used MBlane over the years in more than two automobile accidents. He's also been readily available as a consultant for other legal issues providing great referrals and or references. He and his team are extremely dependable and efficient in keeping you informed of everything going on along the way, weather it be the first time you have retained an attorney or several.

Mr. Blane is an outstanding attorney. I would highly recommend him for any personal injury cases. I think he does do consult on the phone and in person and he is fluent in Spanish which is great in San Diego.
Posted by Alan, a Car Accident client, Flag
I was in an accident in which the mechanism of injury was complex and the recovery time was prolonged and difficult. I was very impressed with the manner in which Mr. Blane went about getting my case settled. He is very organized and is promptly responsive to communication. When he says he will do something I found that he always followed through which is very refreshing. I also knew I had a very strong and capable advocate on my side.
He was able to get a very fair settlement from the insurance company and do it in a timely manner.
After this experience I would highly recommend Mr. Blanes services to any of my family or friends for any personal injury in the event they need an attorney's help.

Mark Blane has been our primary attorney at A3D Technologies since 2007. After using two other highly reputable law firms prior to Mark, it has been fantastic to work with him. First, the time in which it takes Mark to handle a problem or give competent advice has always been extremely prompt. His easy accessibility has been a major factor contributing to that. This has not been the case with other firms. Additionally, he has always been extremely reasonable with his fees. I have never felt that an invoice he submitted was unfair. In most cases I was surprised it was not higher. Most of all, the results have been positive in a higher percentage of cases than other attorneys representing us. Mark is a very competent an motivated attorney and I can with out hesitation recommend him.

Mr Blane represented me in a "Burn Injury" He was personable,
caring, efficient, agressive & very knowledgeable. I was very pleased with the "end result." I can Honestly State " I have had 5 male attorneys in the past & none of them represented me properly.
MARK IS THE BEST MALE ATTORNEY THAT ONE COULD ASK FOR!
Posted by Kim, a Personal Injury client, Flag
I was in a car accident some years ago with whiplash and Mark Blane helped me out with all legal proceedings. He gave me sound advice for dealing with my insurance company and explained everything to me. He was always quick to respond to any questions I had. He got me a bigger settlement by reducing his overall cost and getting the doctors that I saw to also reduce their costs. I have never had a lawyer go to those lengths or even care about getting me the most for my settlement. If I ever need a personal injury lawyer again, he is the one I am going to!

I was involved in a serious rear end car collision and I retained Mark Blane to represent me. From the begining Mark took control and made sure I had everything I needed for medical and financial recovery. He kept me updated at every turn through email and phone, I was never in the dark about anything. Thanks Mark you are a great lawyer and I wish only the best for you.

He took my case after I was told by numerous other Attorneys and the Insurance company, that I had no case. He is very honest and worked hard to get my claim settled very timely. He always took my calls and never passed me off to an assistant. He also took care everything on my behalf and I was never hassled about my bills. I would only recommend Mark Blane.

I was forced to seek legal advice for an auto accident, the insurance company for the other driver tried to get me to settle for $96.00 I called Mark and felt on equal terms with the insurance people representing the other driver I was stopped at a red light and got hit from behind, they tried to place the blame on me.

Mark Blane helped with my case when I was involved in an automobile accident. He handeled my case along with my sisters and mother. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. He was very easy to get in touch with and truely had our best interest in mind. His first consult was free and his attorney fees were payed only until after our case was settled. If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely be contacting Mark Blane.

Mark Blane has the utmost care for his clients. He makes sure you do not have to deal with anything except showing up. All the little fine details are already taken care of. Your health and safety are first taken care of without you even worrying about all the little factors involved. Once you are in good health, he will take care of the legalities. Overall, no one could ask for a better Attorney. He is sympathetic to your needs and will make sure everything is taken care of in the short term AND the long term.

Mr. Blane helped my family in our legal case; we were being wrongfully pursued by a bank that attached false debt to our credit. This resulted in us having damages to our credit. Mr. Blane was able to remove the issue with the bank, and forced them to settle our case to make up for our credit damages. He was able to do this in a short time, and he did everything he told us he would do. He was timely and kept us informed on everything. He also discounted his fees as a courtesy! I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Blane as a superb lawyer.
Posted by Gwyn, a Car Accident client, Flag
I naively thought the process of working with your insurance company was the correct way to go. Months into working with them on my claim, their not being willing to answer my questions, I realized I needed lawyer. Despite being months into my case, Mark was able to step in and handle everything for me taking care of everything so that I could simply focus on recovering my health. He really cared about my recovery and made sure I got what I needed to stay healthy. He is the type of attorney who is always there for you and available beyond the case, as needed. It is without hesitation that I can recommend him.

Mr. Blane came through for me when others did not. He was very easy to talk to and work with throughout my legal case. I had some serious problems that needed immediate attention; bills were mounting, and I had a wrecked vehicle and an aggressive insurance company to deal with. I had no knowledge of the legal system or how to respond to demands, and denials of my case.
Mr. Blane and his legal staff were very friendly and helpful. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case with Mr. Blane's help. All of my legal problems were taken care of. Mr. Blane is a passionate attorney and a credit to his profession. I attest to his professionalism and the fact that he sincerely cares about his clients and people in general. I highly recommend Mr. Blane to anyone needing an expert attorney.
