    • I recommend Mark Gershenson.
    • I hired Mark more than 3 years ago.
    • Mark handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Mr. Gershenson was referred to me by esteemed but mostly retired counsel David Franklin, who described him as "a real technician". He has a cool demeanor and his blows are strategic and professional. My case had been derailed due to the actions or inaction of my two prior attorneys, and I had lost faith in the process. Mr. Gershenson restored my confidence as he rose to the challenge of initially being hired on a limited-scope basis. He wrote a sharp brief and won the day with one of the largest fee awards in Indio. He then subbed in for all purposes. He was very supportive while opposing counsel, tried to ride roughshod over me and railroad me with appalling legal misstatements. Mr. Gershenson is a no-nonsense, matter-of-fact and very effective adversary. He has what it takes to carry my highly contentious and complex case to the limit. I cannot say that about my prior attorneys.

    Mark's a no-nonsense type of lawyer. He doesn't blow smoke at the client. He is a gentleman at all times, but he's also quite tenacious and fastidious in the handling of our case. We found him to be very responsive, careful, & detail oriented in the way he attended to the issues we encountered. Mark is very, very bright and capable - just the sort of fellow you want in your corner! He is scrupulous, persuasive, and attentive.

    We have only the highest regard for Mark Gershonsen's abilities as a person as well as a legal professional.

    Mark Gershenson is a family law attorney in the Coachella Valley whom I highly recommend. I found that Mark was completely accessible and willing to answer any questions I had with regards to the dissolution process. He successfully challenged erroneous filings submitted to the court by opposing counsel both in writing to the court and in person before the judge. I found Mark always had complete understanding of every detail of my case and provided creative solutions to my concerns. As an example, he negotiated a financial settlement between myself, my ex-wife and her counsel which allowed us to avoid costly litigation. I am very excited to have been referred to Mark.

    Mark is a conscientious, hard working, honest, knowledgeable attorney. He is straight forward and pleasant. He knows his stuff and is not like others--he is not just out to get your money--he truly wants to do a great job for you.
