This is my first time involvement in an unlawful situation and needed guidance in facing challenge with court. After released from jail the next morning after my DUI, i did some research online (and through tons of letters from law firms) and found exceptional reviews for Mark, When i called mark, he listened to my situation and guided me through the next steps . He is very responsive and professional with in depth knowledge on CA DUI . I had tons of questions after DUI, he answered all of them with patience. With his constant follow up and guidance, he helped me in reducing my DUI charges to Wet reckless. He will never promise you anything, but he works his best to get best possible outcome to his clients.
I can not recommend Mark Blair enough! I got my second dui about a year ago and immediately started searching for a lawyer. Thank God I found Mark. He was understanding and let me know everything I needed to do. He did not promise a miracle but he definitely delivered! Second time around was way easier to handle thanks to Mark. HIRE HIM IF YOU GET A DUI!
I had a second DUI with .12 BAC, accident and after the fact reported injuries. The injuries were characterized as multiple and serious. I was facing a very real felony DUI. After getting released from jail, I went straight to my computer and started reading AVVO reviews. Who can sleep at 4am when you know you've probably just ruined your life? Well, I'm here to tell you that there is hope. Hiring Mark was a great decision.
If you're looking for a lawyer to tell you the one in a million example of getting a guy off with no penalty, I'm sure you can find that attorney. I hired a lawyer like that on my first DUI. If you want a lawyer to be honest and up front with what you're facing; give you great advice on what to do from arrest to resolution; a lawyer who's fee is an absolute bargain in terms of his availabilty and effectiveness; a lawyer who will respond to your emails the same day you write them, and most importantly, a lawyer who will get you the absolute best outcome that you could have hoped.....HIRE MARK BLAIR!
My outcome was a simple second DUI. My court fine and Mark's fee was the same as the fee from my first attorney. He resolved the case quickly and kept me out of jail. I have a narrow path to get through this in the other aspects of my life, but that's only possible because Mark got the criminal aspect finalized in a way I hoped in my moments of extreme optimism was possible (by reading all these reviews), but was realistic in the knowledge that it could've been much worse.
Hiring Mark was a phenomenal decision for my case. Mark is smart and experienced so he will quickly know how to go about handling your specific case. He keeps constant contact and is always available to answer any questions you may have during this stressful time. He is not going to sugar coat things, he tells you what your are looking, expecting the worst but working to get you the best possible results. He will constantly work to help you through whatever your case requires and will ultimately use his experience, expertise, and great repore and knowledge with the DA's office and the local judges to get you the best possible end to your case. Hiring a class act lawyer like Mark is not only a big releif in this stressful time, knowing someone so skilled on your side, but also a big step in putting this unfortunate part of your life behind. I know this from my personal experiences with Mark and would highly recommend him to anyone who came into a situation like I found myself in.
I highly recommend Mark Blair. He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, responsive and compassionate. His guidance through the process really simplified things.This was my first offense DUI with an accident and a high BAC. Mark was very clear in what I needed to do in order to stay out of jail and minimize sentencing. He communicated clearly and promptly with me and always conveyed realistic possible outcomes of the case.I came out with a $2000 fine, a 3 month DUI class, 3 year probation, installed the IID in my car for 5 months, no jail time.
I unfortunately had gotten myself into a predicament recently. I was quite stressed out about the whole thing to say the least. After my situation had occurred I had been inundated with mail and flyers proposing to help me in my situation. Needless to say this had only added to the increase of things that I knew I had to consider. At this point it was obvious and I knew it would be in my best interest to hire a lawyer. Mark Blair was one of many other Lawyers that had contacted me via mail. But, amongst all of the Lawyers Mark Blair stood out the most. I had picked up his small Pamphlet I had received in the mail. I was very drawn to the professionalism and scope of information that he had provided me. It was quite obvious that Mark knew what he was doing. Not to mention that just reading what he had to say put me at ease about my situation and he had presented himself very well. I also had realized that in order to get the best outcome from my situation I had to hire a lawyer. Someone that knew their stuff and the law well.
I immediately contacted him to get a clearer idea of him as a person. And most importantly as a professional. When I called Mark he was very easy to reach. He informed me that he was busy at the time and that he would call me and get back to me at a more appropriate time. Preferably In a couple hours...which he did. After we had spoke I had decided to hire mark as my lawyer. It was very clear to me at this point that I had a very good lawyer, if not great, on my hands.
During our time throughout our trial Mark was very helpful. Both in keeping me informed and educated on all my options available regarding the law and my case. As well as provided me with a sense of ease and comfort in knowing things would work out ok. If anything would come up, him or his assistant would always contact me immediately and at anytime I was able to get ahold of him quickly.
In the end, Mark was able to get me the best outcome for my situation. Having everything reduced to the minimum charges. And I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. His professionalism as well as scope of knowledge in regards to the law was unparralled. I cant begin to say how happy I am that I followed my instincts to contact Mark. For it made this whole stressful situation a lot easier to handle and move on from.
If you are looking for a lawyer that is professional, knowledgable and will work on your side to get you the best outcome for your situation and case. I cant stress enough to give Mark Blair a call...
I retained Mr. Blair's services after reviewing his brochure, which detailed all the facets of the charge for which I had been arrested. It was detailed, clear and conveyed a thorough understanding of the law and processes which I was facing. After contacting his office, he responded promptly and laid out a plan of action for defending my case. At all times he kept me informed of the status of my case, what would happen next, and made me understand my part and responsibilities in defending myself. At no time did he promise anything he did not feel he could deliver. Rather he portrayed a realistic picture of what might lie ahead, but assured me that he would do his best. And that he did, beyond anything I might have hoped for - he convinced the District Attorney's office not to file charges against me.
I highly recommend Mark Blair for his professionalism, knowledge of the law, and his effectiveness in obtaining the best possible outcome for me. The fee for his services was more than made up for by the positive outcome he achieved for me.
Now obviously I can’t guarantee this result for you, but if you hire Mark, you will get an experienced professional who will move Heaven and Earth to fight for you. Not only does he know DUI law like the back of his hand, he also cares deeply for his clients. He went well beyond his duties as an attorney and spent considerable time on the phone with me, assuring me everything was going to be alright and brainstorming more strategies to use in negotiations with the prosecutor. On top of all that, he’s also incredibly friendly and down-to-Earth; you can always count on him to crack some jokes to lighten the mood. And the best part is that he charges a very reasonable fee. Go ahead and do your own research. Other attorneys charge more and have less experience.
I haven’t always made the best choices in my life, but one choice I got right was hiring Mark Blair. If you want the best outcome for your case, don’t hesitate to hire him.
Mark Blair from the start of the first phone call was very nice and easy to talk with regarding my case. He was not aggressive and did not sound like he had little care like many other Attorneys i had tried to contact. He was always on top with every little bit of information and did what i thought was the impossible by getting the least amount of punishments for my case. He is definitely someone i would refer.
Mr. Blair was able to help me more than I could have thought possible. My case was hopless and he somehow got my charge reduced. I can't thank him enough! I was treated kindly, and kept informed through the whole process. I endorse Mr. Blair wholeheartedly as a DUI lawyer!
