straight forward talk
I’d like to share experience I had with Mark Mahoney. Due to some unfortunate consequences I had to retain his services. He is straight forward and talked sense into my bravado. He explained process with depth and understanding of circumstances. Knowledge of courts working and jury trials was exhaustive. Results were more desirable than expected given the situation. Follow up was excellent too.

Busy and disorganized
After taking your money he is busy and disorganized and makes you deal with his personal assistants instead of being there in your time of need. Find someone else!

Does not care about smaller clients
At first Mark Mahoney seemed great and was helpful. However after paying my first bill of a couple thousand Mark and Ivonne began ignoring my emails and not returning phone calls. If you are not a high paying client they do not care about you. I had to find another lawyer to help me. Beware!
