Highly recommended attornry
I have dealt with Mark Fonte on several legal issues he has been nothing but professional, courteous and compassionate. I would highly recommend him to to anyone who has a legal issue knowing that he will do everything in his power to guide them through their trying times as he is an expert in his field. His reputation is above reproach.

Best DWI Attorney
When our son was arrested for DWI we didn’t know where to turn. Mr. Fonte was our answer! He put us at ease and kept us fully informed. Today our son has no criminal record. We can’t thank him enough.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Mr. Fonte after getting into some trouble with the law. He was professsional, understanding and made me feel like someone was on my side. I was facing possible jail time and Mr. Fonte kept all of his promises and kept me out of jail. He got me the best deal possible. He was early for every court date and returned every single phone call. He is a man of his word and I HIGHLY recommend him. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome or a better attorney.

A Lawyer and a Gentleman
I used Mark Fonte when my son was arrested and we were all scared to death. He reassured us right from the start that everything would be ok. It took many court appearances and he fought hard for my son. He didn't stop fighting until he got my son off from the charges. Everyone seemed to know and respect him, even the Judges. He has such a presence in the courtroom you just feel comforted seeing him. He is definitely the lawyer you want representing a loved one. He seemed like a professional and the rest were amatures. I will always be grateful to him.

Excellent Criminal Lawyer
Mr. Fonte was very knowledgeable, reassuring, and explained everything that was going to happen to me.. I was in my 30's when I was arrested, scared, and over whelmed that I was involved with the Judicial System. I was concerned and frighten of the walk through the Judicial System Mr. Mark Fonte calmed my fears, held my hand, and the outcome was just as he said it would. A couple of times Mr. Fonte couldn't be present for my case and he told me well ahead of time and briefed me on the covering lawyer and what to expect. Mark Fonte is the lawyer you want on your side and he will return phone calls, inform you of your rights and what will happen.

Stereotypical Lawyer
I was referred to this lawyer because I was told the Staten Island court system was very political. You had to have a lawyer who was friends with everyone you interacted with through out the process. I was arrested for driving while impaired so I went with him because the referred reputation, and he was relatively cheap. Let me tell you, he was buddy-buddy with them all, shaking hands and kissing babies up and down the isles. He didn't know my case, didn't know my background, and didn't show me he gave one care, all he cared about was getting paid. He was going through the motions when he represented me, just another day in the office. He seemed oblivious to outcomes and played off certian sentences with out explaining the repercussions. When all was said and done with the court system the dmv slapped their own fines and sentences. My license was supposed to be suspended for 3 months it wound up being over a year. My advice to Mark would be to manage expectations better, and be more knowledgable about outcomes. You are a criminal lawyer and do this everyday you should have a better understanding. It will limit bad reviews.
