I hired Mark Johns to represent my daughter in clearing up some old traffic violations. Mark Johns failed to send letters of representation to the courts, failed to appear before the judge when scheduled by the court and failed to submit the proper paperwork to the courts resulting in a warrant being issued. We had to hire another attorney to represent my daughter in this case. Mr. Johns blamed the courts for lying to us opposed to excepting responsibility.

Don't waste your time or money. He took my case and retainer. Told me everything was good, then a year later I recieved a notice that my license was suspended. He gave me a bunch of b.s. excuses and told me there was a "fire" at Penndot and they lost my records. Then a week later told me once again all was good. Another year had passed and my license was suspended and the police took it from me when I was pulled over. After 2 days of callschool and text messages he finally answered. He gave me the run around for another 3 weeks and when I pressed him he basically told me he did nothing and I had to file several different appeal. Really??? What did I pay him for???? I currently took my situation to our state reps office. This so called attorney took my money, cost me my job and 3 years of aggravation and stress. I later found out that he was suspended from practicing lawith for a year and this guy still gave me legal advice. What options do I have? He needs to pay me back my retainer and should be disbarred for life. Do not fall into the same trap I did. I was stuck and had to see it through.

This lawyer took my money to help restore my driver's license from a lien. He claimed to have gotten a settlement after two months of working the case. He did not actually get in touch with the other attorney's office. He did not actually get confirmation of the settlement. He took money for the settlement. Then he stopped texting me and calling me. I asked for a refund and he agreed. That was a month ago and I have not heard anything from him.

I was facing a 120-day suspension of my driver's license privileges. I hired Mark to represent me. He got the DMV to reschedule my hearing for a time that was convenient for me, came up with a solid defense strategy, and during the hearing, argued the facts in such a way that the DMV representatives reduced the sentence from 120 days to 40 days. Answered E-mails and text messages promptly, and provided copies of documents upon request without any delay. I'm highly satisfied with Mark's services, and intend to retain him for representation in 2 other ticket cases.

I hired him Oct 2014 for driving on a suspended license for non payment of a ticket. He told me it would get resolved easily. He forgot to send in the paperwork to the court for an appeal. Then he would never answer or returned my calls to give me any update. He kept my money and I just got a letter in the mail saying I've been convicted and my license is suspended for a year.

Mark was great. He informed me of the tickets i recieved and what they actually meant. He represented me in court and got all charges dropped. If i had not fought the tickets i would have been fined and lost my license. He took the stress off me and I never waited long to hear back from him. I would call him if you dealing with a similar situation. Having someone give you their opinion and be in your corner is well worth the price. He saved me over $600

I hired Mark over 8 months ago to take care of a speeding ticket. He has not called me once since I paid him. I have to reach out to him for an update every couple weeks. He has shown me no paper work and no proof that he went to court. I have heard nothing from him since the court date jan 9th 2015 as it is now 2/19/15. This is almost a joke.

Well today I had my court date for driving while under DUI suspension. I'm very glad that I hired Mark, he was extremely well priced compared to other lawyers and his service was well worth it. I had plead not guilty to driving under dui suspension while using an occupational limited licnese. While the officer only asked for simple proof provided by my employer in order to show that I was driving within my parameters, once I had arrived with the evidence he completely changed his tone. The officer was argumentative and confrontational but once Mark Johns arrived the officer calmed down. He was able to negotiate a fair agreement and long story short I walked out with three points on my DL, as opposed to 90 days in jail and over 500 in fines. All in all I am very happy and his service was well worth the peace of mind knowing I had someone in my corner. For those of you who wonder if legal representation makes a difference in traffic court, I would have to say that 110% it does from my experience today. The court system WILL take advantage of you so they can impose stronger fines and rack up more convictions.

I was extremely happy with the sevices! The first time I spoke w/ Mark on the phone, I was a bit upset. He provided calm reassurance, and put me right at ease. From a professional standpoint, he and Nicole make a great team. Email replies are quick and thorough. Since this was all a new experience to me, I had many questions, and probably over-complicated things. But once I finally let go, and let the professionals handle it, all worked out! The case was dismissed, and I had no fees other than Mark's, which he absolutely earned!

Mr Johns was awesome for me. He fought very hard in the corrupt little town I live in, and saved me license. I never had a chance on my own, and hired Mr Johns to bring out the big guns. I highly recommend him to anyone. He's very quick to get back to you via email, texts, or calls. He reassured me I would have my license, and I can very happily say I do! I can't thank him enough!
