Found out through other parties that Mark had a very strong reputation as a divorce attorney and sought his counsel. A large majority of my divorce case was handled by his paralegal, Eileen Smith, but the several times that I had the opportunity to chat with Mark, either face-to-face or over the phone, he was a pleasant person to talk with and typically filled in the remainder of the picture started by Eileen. All-in-all a positive overall experience during a delicate time in my life.
Mark was my attorney in likely the worst time of my life. He took numerous calls from me with new situations frequently. Looking back I wish I would have handled some of my situation different (custody and parenting plan further into the future) but hindsight is always 20/20. The most important outcome; I am safe and I got out of the state with my son! At a time where my and my sons life seemed to be literally in Marks hands, he was honest, caring and available for me. If I still lived in the state, I would be happy to use him again (but hope I never face that kind of stuff ever again in my life)!
Could not have had a better lawyer to represent our case. He was very informative, very professional, his whole staff was very efficient and personal. Mark is very caring and showed us that he truly cared about our whole family. He is the most honest lawyer I have ever met and if we ever had to use a lawyer again we know right where to go.
Terrible service! Wasted thousands of dollars going back and forth with him during my divorce. When it came time for him to speak in court he seized up while I was raped by the judge, and joked with her afterwards like they were buddies. Then failed to tell me I had 10 days to file an appeal. Then had the balls to write me a bogus letter saying he quits for family reasons, after I fired him.
He did some legal research for me on a land dispute in Guam. He was timely and accurate and presented the information he found to me in a way I could actually understand! His rates were fair and he earned every penny.
Being faced with legal situations can be pretty intimidating and stressful... Mark not only eloquently and effectively prepared my documents, but also patiently educated me on the best courses of action to take. He is incredibly personable, and on top of being my legal consult, I consider him a sincere friend. Thank you so much.
It is with pleasure that I recommend Mark Arend. He Has Given legal guidance to resolve some unexpected stressful situations. Mark educated me on my options and helped me feel empowered. The empowerment relieved stress, which I did not expect an attorney to provide. He reminds me of a Dr. that treats the whole patient not just the symptom. It's not about the ailment; it's about how you are doing holistically. That is a rare characteristic matched with great integrity. I am fortunate to have Mark as my attorney and recommend him highly to anyone who is seeking no holds bar legal counsel or representation.
