I had been fighting with my ex for far too long trying to get a divorce. No matter who I talked to, everyone was certain that this divorce was going to be a long, drawn out process because he was not co-operating with me. My mother (who has also retained Mark's services) referred me to Mark, and not only was he able to free me from a 6 year separation, but he did so without an exorbitant price tag included. He was very compassionate, understanding how upset I was with the situation, and always kept me well informed of what was going on when, where we were with the situation, what he was going to do and how we were going to go about things. So I was never in the dark about what was happening with my case.
Mark was a total Godsend to helping to move my life forward!

Mark helped me with a complex family court case which eventually was taken to Supreme court as a divorce proceeding . My case was complicated because of multicultural, religious and extended family dynamics but Mark had open mind and he listened, researched and tried to incorporate and attend to the values that were important to me in legal proceedings .
I appreciate his professionalism and maintaining a respectful yet firm standing throughout the case . He clearly knew to pick the right battles despite provocative communications from opposite council and did not waste time and effort in unnecessary communication.
Overall , he is not only a strong advocate with great communication skills but also a respectful, personable and understanding person.
Appreciate your help -Thanks Mark !!

So I choose mr. Bezinque based on these reviews on this site. I retained him for my divorce. I found him taking weeks to respond to inquiries. Sending you other responses and not being available to talk or email for a couple weeks when you are challenged by opposing council. It is a crappy and helpless feeling. Very quick to answer your call when you are interviewing him to be your attorney, impossible to get a hold of him after you retain him. I changes attorneys and he did not transfer full files that I spent a lot of time and energy compiling for him. He did know how to charge and also over charged when I left for another attorney. I called and reached out via email to discuss...of course, no return call. I think the majority of these reviews are likely friends or family.

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!
