Mark Schoener and paralegal Cindy Bushnell were very informative and great to deal with.We are from the Vancouver area in B.C Canada.The laws are very different in Washington from ours and we found Mark and Cindy very pleasant to deal with.We would recommend them to people on both sides of the border.

Mark handled my divorce and post divorce issues. He is very down to earth and straightforward, realistic and honest, always telling you what you need to know, not what you want to hear. I enjoyed working with both he and his paralegal Kate, they were both calming and sensible in a most stressful situation. My case was not easy and Mark made it manageable. He is very knowledgeable about family law. I would definitely recommend Mark as an attorney and have already referred him to others.

Mark Schoener helped my husband 5 years ago with a parenting plan between him and his daughter's Mother. Parenting plans are no fun because both sides do a lot of disagreeing. Mark is quick to let you know when to keep going and when to stop because the other side just won't give in. This year the PP had to be modified, but we weren't worried because we knew Mark would work hard to do what was best for us. His paralegal, Kate, is a gem and so professional. If you are heading towards a not so nice custody battle Mark is the guy to turn to. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy he is compassionate. Mark really cares about you and the outcome which is why he does everything he can to make things as smooth as possible. I think the best part about Mark and his staff is that they really want you to understand and go to great lengths to explain in layman terms so you are comfortable with decisions being made. Thank you, Mark for everything you have done to ease the stress in all our lives and thank you for caring. Mark Schoener is the BEST!!!

Legal matters are never fun to go through, but Mark puts your worries at ease with his knowledge and compassion. He listens and is genuinely concerned about your situation. He has helped my family in several matters: business woes, real estate glitches, divorce and dui. I wouldn't think of asking anyone else for help and if Mark can't help you, then he will put you in contact with someone who can!

Mark represented me on a personal injury case resulting from an auto accident. My car was totaled and I had physical injuries due to the accident. Mark's advise was excellent and he negotiated a significantly large sum of money from the insurance company, far more than they originally tried to pay out. Mark's office staff, Kate and Cindy were also very helpful and professional. I was able to turn the entire incident over to Mark and his staff and not worry about the outcome. Mark provided excellent representation and working with Mark and his staff was a pleasure.

Mark has represented myself and other family members for many years. He has worked on a variety of legal matters and the outcome has been positive. I appreciate his honesty and ability to articulate the issue at hand. When asked I always refer others to Mark first.

Mark Schoener is an incredible Attorney. He will fight for you, but at the same time let you know when something is not worth fighting for and to just move on. Sometimes brutal honesty is hard to take, but when the end result is your Attorney looking out for you so that you do not incur unwarranted fees, well then that's brutality I will gladly accept. Mark is very knowledgeable and excellent at explaining things in layman terms so that it's easy to understand. I would highly reccomend him. No one likes to have to hire an Attorney, but Mark makes the situation the best it can be and my experience was a good one. I learned a lot from him and he didn't mind being a teacher.

Mark did the drill. I was surprised how vague divorce law is. I think Mark informed me the potential downsides pretty well and probably kept me out of trouble. We had tried mediation earlier, but that was a non-starter. With Mark's help we got to a point which was significantly less than my wife was asking. So I guess that was success

Mark is a professional in every sense of the word. He quickly develops understandable dialogue, has excellent communication skills and is very thorough with follow up. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation.from an experienced, knowledgeable attorney.
