Divorce is a very overwhelming and confusing time. I will say that from the very first meeting, I felt 100% confident that I made the right decision in retaining Mark as my attorney.
I am very detail oriented and I came with a multitude of questions and scenarios and Mark patiently answered them all. I felt like I could get as much clarification as I needed and never felt like I was being a bother. That was extremely important to me. During the process I felt that my divorce was in the best of hands and he kept me notified every step of the way.
Mark was very knowledgeable and was able to guide me through the process to a very positive outcome. I did my research ahead of time and I chose him based on the excellent reviews. I can definitely say that all those reviews are accurate. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone going through a divorce.

I do not wish divorce on anyone, but if you are faced with it I highly recommend Mark Chauvin Bezinque. He helped me through this difficult time in my life and at all times kept my best interest in mind. Every time I cried he had a tissue for me. Every time I wanted to scream he calmed me down and explained the next steps. Although no one truly wins in this situation I feel mark was a gladiator and I feel that I actually won this case (thanks to Mark). I don't have a husband anymore, but Mark made sure I walked away as whole as one person can in this situation. If the point system is on a scale of 1-10 I rate Mark a 10 plus

I called Mark concerning a possible incorrect calculation by the NYS retirement system related to a domestic relations order...in short they were paying my ex-wife too much,
Mark sent a letter to the system and after a recalculation I am now getting the correct amount.
What I respected so highly about Mark is that he answers his own phone and replies to emails himself versus everything going through a receptionist. If you do leave a message be ready for a call back very quickly.
Mark cares deeply for his clients and it shows.
Hire Mark and get things done right the first time around!!

Unfortunately I went through a horrible divorce about 5 years ago. During the process, I worked with Mark every step of the way through the divorce itself and subsequent child custody battle. Through Mark's calming demeanor, knowledge of parental rights and of the Rochester judicial system, he helped me get through the most difficult situation of my entire life. I am now happily raising my two children and have been able to move forward with my life. This never would have been possible without Mark's expertise and human compassion.

Going through a divorce is a difficult time of life. I highly recommend Mark Chauvin-Benzinque due to his professionalism, competence, and follow through in all areas of divorce litigation. He demonstrated interest, caring, and concern during all aspects of litigation. From the hearing, deposition, and pre-trial phase, he was on the "mark". He demonstrated excellent communication and responded promptly to questions. I give Mark Chauvin-Benzinque the highest recommendation.

From our very first interaction I knew that hiring Mark was the right thing to do. He had been referred to me as an " smart attorney with a reasonable hourly rate" and he definitely was that, but he was also compassionate, responsive, and knowledgeable. He was never condescending or difficult to work with, but was actually quite witty and good-natured! Working with Mark made a very difficult chapter in my life a little bit easier to swallow.

It was a distinct pleasure working with Mark, even through this very stressful time in my life. His counsel was extremely fair and well thought out and he was always conscious of keeping his billing reasonable. I would recommend him highly!

This is to update the other review I did. Mark, is very personable, responsive and currently to booked for my particular case. Can't be upset over his being busy. He got all my communications, and replied back we spoke a few on the phone and he was nice enough to offer some other names to try. So for that alone, I think Mark is upstanding, and deserves an EXCELLENT review, even if he can not represent me. Thanks,

I found that Mark was a very personable and down to earth man of integrity.
From the outset of my working with Mark he was a huge advocate of working through issues with reason, facts and resolve, His explaining the steps along the way made for a very smooth process and was an advocate of settling outside of the court system, to the benefit of all.
