Top Notch
We hired Mark to collect our high dollar charge account that had been written off. Not only have we seen an increase in the accounts collected post charge-off, but the level of communication has been second to none. No other attorney has been able to maintain the balance of collections and customer service quite like Mark.

Great guy
I had the pleasure of working with mark while he was in school a few years back. Having doubts of a student attorney mark surprised me with his skills in court and his willingness to actually help his client.
