  • Jennifer L. Fazio

    Mark and I have been opposing counsel on numerous cases. It is always a welcome relief to know that Mark is representing the other party in a family law matter, because I know that, although he will strongly advocate for his client, he is able to do so with a sense of fairness and a desire to cause no further harm to an already stressful situation. I highly endorse this lawyer.

  • Robert A. Schwartz

    I first met Mark a number of years ago when we represented opposing spouses in a highly contested divorce case. I came away from that case with great respect for Mark's knowledge, experience, and ability as both a litigator and a negotiator. I no longer handle contested custody matters and I have referred a number of clients to Mark for representation. I have only received good reviews. I have no hesitation referring the most difficult or complicated cases to Mark.
