Hire him!!
Mark is an incredible attorney that overcame a very unique legal situation to ensure I was granted a protective order against my spouse. His expertise and pure tenacity allowed us to present my case clear enough to support my need for a stay-away order. I highly recommend the Rollins/Chan firm.

Excellent
During the consultation Mark explained what my option are very clearly and walked me through the whole process. He gave me arrays of options and what the probabilities of those options are based on his experience. I had a lot of question and Mark was happy to explain to me in detail of how the legal system works regarding my case. Mark did an excellent Job making explaining the facts of the case to the prosecutor and got the best outcome possible and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Mark Rollins and Ada Chan. You won't find a better advocate on your behalf. Thank You Mark and Ada

I hired a winning team
I hired Mark to handle 2 criminal cases and 1 case that i appealed. After Mark finished in the court room I was victorious in all 3 cases. He knows his law, applied the right strategy and he clearly plays to win. My money was very well spent, it felt good being apart of a winning team

Helped my Family
Mr. Rollins represented my family for DUI charges and criminal charges in both DC and the State of Maryland. He did a fantastic job in both DC Superior Court and in Prince George's County Court. I so appreciate all the hard work he provided to my family in their time of need. I would highly recommend him if you ever get in trouble.

Great Lawyer - Helped me. Thank you Mr. Rollins
Mr.Rollins handled my case and did an outstanding job! Were other attorneys often quoted me as a little out of my price range, Mr. Rollins sat down with me and worked out a much more affordable plan. As it pertained to my particular case, Mr. Rollins understood my concerns and went to great lengths to allay my worst fears. I would most definitely recommend his services to any who requires legal assistance in the DC/ Maryland area!

Mark Rollins to the rescue
I was very pleased with the advocacy I received from the Rollins and Chan law firm. Mark Rollins was completely professional, upfront and reliable. During the initial meeting, he advised me of all the various aspects and possible results of my charges. He continued to keep me advised during each phase and projected its probable consequence. Mr. Rollins responded immediately with answers to my questions and by doing so, he dispelled any and all of my anxieties. While never making any promises or guarantees, he did suggest what he thought might be a reasonable outcome. As my case progressed through the system, the final solution was even better than I had thought possible. I would unequivocally recommend Rollins and Chan. Should I need legal representation in the District of Columbia in the future, I will request their services. Thank you Rollins and Chan!

The reality of my second chance at life
Mr. Rollins is a honest and straight forward attorney. He's both professional and knowledgeable in what he does. Mr. Rollins represented me in a simple assault/2nd degree cruelty to children case, which was a very challenging case to prove. He thoroughly explained the challenges in our case, and promised to do his best. We often believe that court appointed attorneys aren't the best attorneys to have; however, Mr. Rollins isn't one of those attorneys. Mr. Rollins was God sent! He was very diligent and informative. I had to post a review because Mr. Rollins isn't just an attorney who's doing his job. He's a person who cared about how the alligations in my case were going to impact my life. Mr. Rollins was always honest about the challenges of our case. He never sugarcoated anything and never made any promises, but always gave me hope throughout our case...even when I couldn't see a successful ending ahead. Mr. Rollins believed in my innocence and proved my case! This is my successful moment. It feels good to breath again. Now I can move on with my life. I am so greatful for Mr. Mark Rollin's professional knowledge, diligent work, and positive encouragement he presented throughout our case. I am now a believer that all court appointed attorneys aren't the same. I would highly recommend Mr. Mark Rollins.

Integrity Defined
You learn a lot about a person within the first twenty minutes. Mark’s ability to clearly convey and communicate his course of action concerning my case assured me that I had chosen the correct lawyer. He was decisive in court, approachable in person and responsive to all of my questions. Mark is a great lawyer and I will continue to recommend him to family and friends.

Awesome Service
Going through a divorce can be a difficult thing and it can be even more frustrating when you're not sure of the correct procedures and how things should be handled. Mark Rollins stepped up as my lawyer and took care of everything for me! During a rough time in my life, I knew that I didn't have to worry about any of the legalities, because I knew that he had everything under control on my behalf. He was extremely professional, upfront and reliable. He made this aspect of my divorce very simple and with that, gave me a needed comfort during this time. Thank you Mark!

Poor Representation
I hired Mr. Rollins and his partner, Ms. Chan, to assist with a legal matter. They overpromised and failed to deliver. After compensating them in full, they barely touched my case. They dropped the ball and they knew it. I was left was a distressing, undesirable result that I am still dealing with today.
Response from Mark Rollins January 25, 2024
So, I take my representation very seriously. Unfortunately, this person unanimously posted so we have no idea who this is. We will never drop the ball and leave someone in that position. While I am not perfect, I do not have not had any clients that match this person. If this person wants to reach out to me directly please feel free - but I have no such clients that match this person. Our aim is always to resolve our clients' legal matters as effectively as possible, so your feedback is extremely important to us if we represented you. In order to address your concerns, I would invite you to contact me at your convenience because we take these things very seriously. When someone posts unanimously - we cannot review the accusations. We value our clients and feedback, and we are committed to making things right. I assure you that we will take every step necessary to address your concerns and work towards a satisfactory resolution. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you. Please let us know a suitable date and time for you to discuss this further. Best Regards,
