LEGAL PROBLEMS ARE STRESSFUL. EACH SITUATION REQUIRES A SOLUTION THAT FITS. WHETHER IT IS PURCHASING A HOUSE OR A BUSINESS, NEEDING TO SUE OR GETTING SUED, PERHAPS IN FORECLOSURE OR NEEDING A BANKRUPTCY- I AM HERE TO HELP. MARK'S COMBINATION AS AN ATTORNEY AND A CPA GIVES ME VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES

I started out as an accountant and after passing my CPA exam, I decided to go to Law School. After Graduating Law School in 1986 I opened my own law firm taking on all kinds of cases including bankruptcy, personal injury, litigation, and various types of municipal court and criminal actions. My philosopy is that an attorney needs to be a problem solver with the clients goals and interests above all else. Sometimes to resolve a problem it takes a smooth negotiation, yet other times it takes an all out war.

I always try the peaceful solution first.

When the recession hit the State of New Jersey, I became very involved in saving houses for people and attended over 4000 foreclosure mediations, and have helped people save their homes with loan modifications and reorganizations. I have also assisted many people who needed a bankruptcy, a deed-in-lieu, or a short sale.

Treated my situation and family with respect and knew "his stuff"!
I had hired Mr. Cherry primarily due to a mortgage issue. He ended up helping me with quite a few other issues that contributed to my initial need to consult with him. He and his staff well exceeded our expectations with communicating with us. There were no surprises along the way. Not only that ... my wife has some health issues. Mark really kept stress levels down which helped very much. I share Mark's name with anyone I meet that needs an attorney. I wouldn't do that without a lot of thought. These are serious issues people are dealing with. We never felt belittled or "talked down to". Mark Cherry and his team are God-sends!

Amazing service!
I was going to have a foreclosure on my house. A friend recommended Mr Cherry as being a very competent attorney in this field. I met with him at the beginning and he explained what would happen and how much it would cost. His assistant was amazing and expedited my file with the mortgage company. I was kept informed of the proceedings and never worried about being ignored. I have since used him and his office for other dealings as well and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone needing help with their homes.

Absolutely a super representative for legal work needed....
I've been with Mark for over 22 years alone for just the legal work needed for those Real estate transactions I've done for both my commercial and residential needs. He has been professional, courteous, and knowledgeable in this and the related aspects need to safely and smartly navigate these and other my legal needs. I cannot say enough on this point. Additionally, he is an great to work with and cares about his clients. While I could go on, all I can do is to say that I positively recommend him!

Sylvia Rocks!!
I have been very happy with Mr. Cherry's paralegal Sylvia. I recently hired Mr. Cherry for selling my parents' house. Sylvia fielded all my questions. She got all of the paperwork together promptly. She knew about the closing out the home equity loan and ensured that the bank was involved. And on top of that Sylvia is personable. Mr. Cherry also found issues with my contract and corrected them. He was able to represent me at closing. The buyers wanted a concession, but Mr. Cherry negotiated it away. I have bought two houses before. I have sold a house before. This is the first time I feel like I had someone looking out for me. I would recommend contacting Mark Cherry for your real estate transactions because the Sylvia paralegal rocks!!

Great balance between legal and financial advice
I contacted Mark Cherry because I wanted to sell a rental house privately, but needed financial advice in the handling of it, and I saw that he had CPA experience. He kept me on point about the various legal complications throughout the process and calmed my financial fears. And his paralegal Sylvia was just the best, so patient in answering my many questions and keeping all the paperwork up to date. I would use Mark Cherry again without a doubt.

Mr. Cherry and his staff know their stuff
I had an estate matter that was unique, difficult and long but Mr. Cherry and his staff guided me through the process tackling one hurdle at a time. They really take your case as if was their own and work hard to get it resolved. Looking back on the last year, I don't think I would have wanted any other lawyer handling this issue. His staff knew all the right people to contact and got answers swiftly despite dealing with this issue at the height of the pandemic when offices were often closed. Mark and his staff were always a phone call away for any issues and did a lot of the grunt work needed to complete my case. Moreover they were very transparent in what they were doing and why and took time to explain the ins and outs of the issue(s) that we either might face or are facing. Overall this firm is kind, caring and good at their job and will do their best to work with you as best they can. So thank you Mark and staff. I hope to never have to deal with this issue again but if I do, I'll be coming back.

Super Professional
Mark's team (special shout out to Silvia!), handled my FSBO in a most professional and detailed manner. They were on top of everything and made the entire process run seamlessly. Having Mark at the settlement table gave me confidence the closing would run smoothly. Highly recommend. Thank You!

Lawyer of the year
Mark caught the bank underwriter I was using for my mortgage red handed trying to put a lien on my father's house who was co signing for me. Mark said "Not on my watch". He truly had my back and I am very grateful for him and his staff. I closed on my house and it was a smooth process.

First Class Legal Counsel
Mark Cherry has handled two estate settlements for me. As in past legal matters, Mark Cherry and his staff are always on top of every issue, keep me informed and make themselves available for any questions I may have. Following my last estate settlement I called the New Jersey Division of Estate Taxation for a status report and I was told Mr. Cherry submitted precisely what was required to close the estate. An absolutely great lawyer and support staff.

Comprehensive Excellence
We recently used Mark on a real estate transaction to purchase our first home. Mark was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the transaction, including details about what to look for in the inspection and questions regarding the survey. Not only was Mark great to work with, but the seller's attorney told me Mark and his staff were incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with as well. Definitely recommend.

A professional who instills confidence.
Mark and his staff have gone the extra mile. They filed last minute bankruptcy and have assisted with foreclosure. They take the time to explain what is occurring and don’t mind my many questions.

So patient and understanding
Me Cherry was extremely helpful in explaining all of our bankruptcy options. He was patient and understanding and treated us with respect. Dottie was and continues to be the most helpful through the entire process.

This guy is gold!
I enjoy a good attorney joke as much as the next person. This guy is no joke! Thrilled with every aspect of his work thus far. After negotiating terms of a contract for me, the other party even remarked that they really liked him. Super satisfied! His counsel was personalized and spot on. I never felt rushed, was updated throughout the process, and was very comfortable with him at the helm. He took the time to understand my business needs and applied them seamlessly. Pros and cons of options were clearly explained. Billing was very reasonable as well. Thank you for removing the stress, Mark.

Amazing LAW Office and Services
I have had the pleasure of working with Mark Cherry and his staff. He is a professional with integrity and believes at looking at all of the options available to his customers and because of that leadership quality and character his staff all have the same work ethics. I also worked closely with Sylvia, a paralegal and she fought for my clients rights, issues and concerns and advocated as she would for herself. I would rate Cherry Law Offices with 5+ as their service is TRIPLE A.
