The Best Attorney.
Mark worked a very difficult case for my family. He learned our case from A to Z, saw what other 5 Attorneys missed. He is hardworking and puts his heart at what he does. He was always available to correctly answer our questions and paid attention to our ideas and what we had to say.

Highly Recommended
Mark is an excellent attorney that guided us successfully through a chapter 11 business reorganization. I wouldn't be in business today if it wasn't for Mark's guidance and expertise.

Mark proved to be well-reasoned and thorough in his response to my inquiry. He gave me every indication that he is a skilled attorney. I wouldn't hesitate to retain him as counsel.

Excellent !
I was involved in a class action case, and Mr.Schlachet was my attorney. From the beginning..I realized that he was a special man. He was kind, sensitive and very bright. I do not know how many lawyers have all his qualities. I would surely recommend him to anyone that would need an attorney.
