Mark Deniz did an exceptional job in representing me and my DUI case. Considering the substantial case details that were brought against me, Mark was able to decrease the charge to a much lesser charge of Wet Reckless. With no license suspension, minimum classes, and no community service, Mark went above and beyond what I expected as an outcome for my case. Marks proactive approach also ensures that every aspect of your case will be ready for defense weeks before your court date. I would definitely recommend mark to my friends and family.
Well first of all I would like to Thank Mr. Deniz for his business. I had a great outcome with my case I'm extremely happy. Thru out the case he kept me motivated. I am glad I went with Mr. Deniz. I highly recommend!!!
Was pulled over for messing with my GPS. Turned out the police smelled alcohol on me from beers a couple of hours ago! I monitor my alcohol intake very carefully since had a legitimate DUI 9 years ago. So it surprised me when they took me in to blow. Blew a .10 according to their machine. So I started shopping around for an attorney. Most were overpriced and play the whole "bait and switch", meaning the expierenced guy "consults" your case and you pay a bunch of money, then they send a junior guy to go to court. Not Mark Deniz, after doing careful research on who I would choose, I decided to call Mark. He started working on my case before we even sat down to sign a contract or exchange money. This guy even fought with dmv to try and suspend the suspension. He at least got them to delay it for 2 months while I got my affairs in order. When we sat down to meet at his office, it did not take long for me to realize this guy is a legal genius. I pretty much gave the police all the evidence needed to hit me with the second DUI charge, but Mark managed get the previous DUI thrown out and they ended up treating it like a first time dui. No jail, no community service, 3 months of counseling and a MADD panel. I was facing 90 days in jail, (4 days consecutive) 9 to 18 months of expensive counseling and a hefty fine. Mark had a counter or a motion for everything they threw at me until they finally gave in. I highly recommend Mark and if you are on the fence, Mark can help you!
First time I've ever needed a lawyer and it was a good choice. I called around a few places for something I needed resolved and mark gave me the best service AND the best rate, very affordable. He kept in contact with me thoughout the case and was always very friendly. He will be my go to guy from here on out.
I don't know how he did it but he did. He got me from a DUI to a dry reckless. He was very aggressive and even more than his aggressiveness he was knowledgable. If you're reading this unfortunately you or someone you know was in my predicament which sucks, I know, but going with mark Deniz is the first start to getting out of it!
So My girlfriend and I moved to California from Ohio a few months ago. We are in our early 20s and have No family or fallback within 2,000 miles. One night we had gotten into a little arguement in the case where my girlfriend hit me in the head and the cops were called. She was arrested and facing a Felony. Even though I had only intended to scare her with the police.. they moved forward with charges.
Long story short, We thought our adventure was over. We figured we would owe so much in lawyer fees, courth fees, bail bonds and more that we would simply lose our place and have to go back to Ohio. It was a dark time for us.
I had googled for a Lawyer in my area the next day. It was Saturday evening and the first 10 didnt answer. Luckily, Mark was only 2 rings away. I explained the situation and we met the next day.
Within a week, Everything was dropped! No Court, No Anything... just Vanished! We hoped maybe he could get the charge dropped to a lesser charge.. but did not expect to walk scott free!!!
My girlfriend nearly cried as he gave us the good news right before we were going to walk into court.
One other thing we are most pleased about is how cool he was with the Lawyer fees. He worked on a payment plan that fit us and let me tell you... lawyers can be expensive. He had every right to charge double for the magic he pulled. 100000 Stars.
Give him a try if you want a little peace of mind!!!
I came across Mark in a moment of desperation and he told me he could get me a spotless record and asked for less than half of what any other legal defense was charging. He contacted me frequently and directly to update me on the process and answered all of my questions quickly. Mark negotiated expertly with the court and won me the best possible outcome I could have asked for. I appreciate him speaking to me directly the entire time and for investing so much time into getting to know me and my specific case. I strongly recommend him to anyone in need of legal defense.
SO I cannot begin to tell YELP peeps how much Mark and his office helped me.
II WAS IN DEEP DEEP SH*! where I thought I would have to serve jail time as there was a bench warrant for a FTA - on top of a pending misdemeanor... LONG STORY SHORT..
The case went from me with no DL and a misdemeanor to 10 days trash pickup and $2300 in total fines to $400 and an infraction!
AMAZING AMAZING!! PLUS his compassion for me throughout - i was a basket case - but he always calmed me down and reassured that he would take care of it and get the best possible outcome.. AND HE DID... He's a great advocate to have on your side ...
Fully impressed by his work and more importantly his character - He's doing great work.
Mark Deniz was the best choice of an attorney that we could have made. He was beyond awesome! Hiring an attorney can be an overwhelming experience especially when you are under stress. That was not the case with Mark. From our first initial contact and all throughout our case, Mark was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, honest and worked very hard for us. We appreciated the ease of being able to talk to him and the time he spent with us. We cannot say enough good things about Mark and were very thankful we found him. We would highly recommend Mark Deniz.
I got into a serious legal issue. After speaking to several lawyers, I felt Mark was the best fit for me an my situation. He advocates a strong proactive approach and I know that's what helped get me the outcome that I did.
Mark recommended a number of things that I should do before the first hearing. I followed his advice and clearly he knew what he was talking about.
My outcome could have been much worse. Mark knows the San Diego Judicial system and he knew how to hand my particular situation. I know he really worked hard for me!
Thank You Mark!
