    Mark Deniz is a top-notch criminal defense attorney. He is San Diego's best kept secret.

    Finding a good lawyer can be a very stressful process. I was in trouble with the law a few months ago and I'm glad I chose Mark Deniz to represent me. From the moment when I first reached out to him regarding my ordeal to the times I was in his office to discuss my case, he always kept me calm, listened attentively and assured me he will fight hard to give me the best outcome. It really helped that Mark was a former prosecutor of San Diego, a very good one at that. His fees are very reasonable. He could have easily charged me 2-3 times more for the case but didn't. In short, Mark aggressively handled my case and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. He basically got rid of the charge that I thought was going to be on my record permanently, which would have been devastating. It gets better: the court fine that was imposed was reduced to the lowest fine. I couldn't be happier that I chose Criminal Defense Attorney Mark Deniz. Thank you very much Mark.

    Mark Deniz is a God send

    I got myself in a situation that I felt was going to ruin my life. After being in jail I just thought about having to go back in there. I thought I would lose my job and I would not recover from this. I talked to other attorneys and some were about money and some were just meh. Mark knows what he is doing. Mark responded to my questions. Once I signed he was getting back with me with all the questions I had. He took care of me. He is my hero. I highly recommend.

    Why I Choose Mark Deniz

    When searching through DUI Lawyer's I spoke with 7 potential lawyers. I choose Mark for 2 reasons:
    - First, he offered great advice for free over the phone that would help my case regardless of if I choose him or not.
    -Second, (most important to me) he didn't sugar coat anything. He told me exactly what the worst case outcome could be. This put me at ease because I understood what to expect and wasn't blindsided by anything.

    Looking back at the case, I am glad I had Mark in my corner. He was aggressive and fought to get me the best possible outcome. He was reliable and easy to contact. That doesn't mean he answered every call but he did get back to me before the day was over.
    Marks insights and knowledge about DUI defense is likely so strong from his time as a prosecutor. He knows his stuff in and out. He has good relationships with the Judges and Prosecutors that are likely to be handling YOUR case! If I had known these things about him before I wouldn't have talked to 6 other lawyers.

    End Result: I had a BAC .13, got a wet reckless with no stipulations, and the DMV took my license for 4 months. ( I got it back after 1 month on work related permit but extended the 4 month to 6)

    In short, if you need DUI help pick Mark Deniz! He is honest, hard-working, and knows people. He took my .13 to a wet reckless with no stipulations (court didn't take my license, no community service, etc).

    Excellent Attorney

    This was our first time ever needing legal assistance. From the moment we met Mark we knew that we were in good hands. I am a very hands on and you could say a very impatient person.... I did not feel the need to follow up with Mark or remind him to do things. He handled my matter with a positive outcome. and his staff was friendly and easy to work with . Hope to never need his services but if the need arises I will be contacting Mark.

    A Job that resulted beyond my expectations

    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.

    Could of been DUI #2!

    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!

    Life saver!

    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!

    A Blessing To Work With!!!

    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!!!
