Practice areas

I believe everyone deserves a chance. Everyone deserves achance to defend himself or herself and explain what needs to be explained. Ihave spent a lot of time overseas and have many friends and family from othercountries. When I describe the opportunity that Americans have to stand up forthemselves, to defend themselves and to challenge the State, my foreign friendsare always amazed and envious. Receiving those reactions, understanding theuniqueness of our justice system, and appreciating those opportunities make meproud to do what I do.

            Aftergraduating from Pepperdine University School of Law, I became an AssistantProsecutor in Somerset County, NJ. I handled criminal and juvenile prosecutionsof all natures from the investigation stages through trial. I argued numerouscases in the Appellate Division and submitted briefs to the New Jersey Supreme Court.

            Whilea law student I had several eye-opening experiences that helped me gain myappreciation for the law and our justice system. I was a judicial intern to theHonorable Katharine S. Hayden of the Federal District Court in Newark, NJ and Iwas a legal intern at the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel. Theseplaces showed me people, cases and laws of various philosophies and differentbackgrounds.

            Igained my bachelors degree in History and Journalism & Mass Media fromRutgers University, where I graduated the University with Honors and from mymajors with Highest Honors. I rowed varsity crew all four years.

            In immigration cases, criminal defense, and drunk driving my clients are often fighting uphill battles. The outcomes can never be guaranteed and all the pressure andstress is on them because they stand to lose the most. For that reason Ihold nothing back. Each client is my most important client. Every client has mycell phone number and can call me at anytime with questions. I have severaloffices and try to accommodate clients by meeting as close to their homes orbusinesses as possible, and on days and at times where they will not have tomiss work.

            Ihave the legal knowledge, courtroom presence and relentless work ethic toprovide you with the representation you need in a personable manner so thatyour experience with the legal system is as painless and as successful aspossible.

A real lawyer!!
I found myself in a civil case that went political as per my first lawyer. Lawyer one then became unresponsive with a case I should have gotten a not-guilty 100% Eric mark saw the damage lawyer number one was doing took my case secured my ability to fire lawyer number one. Eric mark with a judge's approval fired lawyer number one . Eric mark went into damage control secured me not dismissal but not guilty of over 90% of the charges against me. Eric mark does not look at the politics he looks at the case and does his job , he's not a big talker he executes . had I secured Eric mark first verdict would have been 100% not guilty easy. I recommend Eric Mark.

Asylum
Eric Mark is an incredible person he pays attention to detail , I hired him for Asylum and he handled my case as his own , one thing he acts and doesn’t talk a lot which made me win my asylum case with him in less than 4years . Eric Mark is the lawyer you need for all your Asylum and Immigration services.

Criminal Domestic Violence Issues Resolved!
I worked with Eric on a severe DM issue. He was very professional, extremely detailed and gave tremendous advice! I just followed whatever he needed me to do and left my case in his hands. The strategy we talked about worked and my case was dropped, thanks to him! I would use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Excellent attorney
Eric was found by a friend of my and I'm so glad he did. My case was pretty intense and he was amazing. In comparing what could have happen to me and what the results were was incredible. I would recommend him as the best lawyer in the state of NJ. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for me. If you need a lawyer he is definitely the one to use. I own him alot for all he as done for me. Eric, thank you again!!!

Amazing immigration lawyer!
Eric helped me with my immigration case. Initially, I did my asylum case with Eric, he believed in me and my story and ensured everything was done properly. I also did my i-485 with Eric, he remained very helpful throughout the years of wait and helped me with all the questions that I had along the way.

Good criminal lawyer
Eric is an honest attorney. That is #1. Also, he will work things out for you in an honest way and do his best. I had a crooked attorney before this so Eric had to help straighten things out for me and he did. He got me into PTI and also worked on expungement. He did this professionally and without trying to overcharge me and scare me like the previous attorney. He also helped me with another matter and is always very responsive. All criminal attorneys should be like Eric Mark.

Got the green card!!
We hired Eric for a green card application for my husband. Eric was very helpful and knowledgeable regarding our specific situation, which was kind of complicated. Eric knew how to handle it and he was responsive throughout the application process, making it easy for us. We had our interview on August 11th, and Eric helped us understand what to expect and was very reassuring. He was there with us for the interview and interjected when we were asked questions that weren't very fair, which was important. Everything went great and we got the green card! Took about 8 months until we got the card after applying, so actually way faster than we expected. Thanks so much Eric! We are SO happy and relieved, and we would highly recommend him to others.

Won a difficult deportation case!
Mr. Mark just helped my wife win her deportation case. Instead of being removed from the country, my wife is in line to get her green card! We hired Mr. Mark based on recommendations from a Rutgers law professor. What we realized immediately was his integrity -- he wanted to know the truth and only the truth. Another trait he has is intellectual curiosity -- last year there was a negative ruling on a similar case. Instead of feeling dejected, Mr. Mark became excited to fight the system. He and his team set up strategies to build up my wife's case. And when opportunities showed up during the hearing, he captured them as a master! How grateful we are for his excellent work! Mr. Mark's fees are very reasonable. We have hired and consulted with other lawyers, both in the NJ area and in other parts of the country. We felt we got a Mercedes for the price of a Honda! To show our appreciation, we paid him extra as a bonus! I would recommend Mr. Mark to my friends. If you are in need of a good immigration lawyer, go talk to him!

Thank you for the review. I guess after several years of working together you got a pretty good read on me. Honesty and intellectual curiosity is a pretty good summary. I appreciate that greatly.

Great Legal Service!
Eric Mark picked up my case which was rejected by no less than seven other attorneys, who said to me my case stand little or no chance of redemption. He overhauled and cleaned up my case and by the time we appeared before immigration office, i could say his legitimate, professional package without doubt, turns things around. As i post this comment, i have my green card in my front pocket. So, if you have some immigration injuries that is not healing, i will say don't wait be on your way to the law office of Eric Mark. You will be glad you did.

Thank you Egbe! The successful end to a difficult case is extra satisfying...be careful with that green card in your front pocket. It's expensive to replace it.
