A Letter from Baltimore Attorney Marc J. Atas

Almost all of my clients share a common trait — they are going through some degree of stress over a legal issue and are in need of a good attorney. Whether suffering a work-related or other personal injury or auto accident injury or being charged with a crime, my clients are anxious about achieving the best results for themselves and their families. Many of my clients have never dealt with the legal system before.

I exclusively represent plaintiffs in personal injury or auto accident litigation on a contingency fee basis. I do not represent insurance companies or large corporations. I am committed to protecting the rights and interests of the little guy or girl who has been injured in motor vehicle accidents, injured while working on the job, or who are facing criminal or traffic charges.

I understand that legal matters involving work-related injuries or other personal injuries cause stress and anxiety. Clients are worried about medical bills and lost wages, as well as being able to support their families and pay bills such as rents, mortgages and gas and electric. As your attorney, I will be on your side and I will do everything I can to make your experience with the legal process as easy as possible.

The workers’ compensation system is complicated and can be frustrating to clients who try to go it alone. My goal is to work with my clients to try to make sure that they are paid their lost wages immediately, get prompt medical attention and get the full workers’ compensation benefits that they deserve.

I appreciate the importance of defending the rights of the accused, and I use all available means to ensure that clients receive outstanding legal representation and access to justice. The consequences of a criminal conviction can be devastating. These charges must be vigorously defended. If the government is trying to convict you of a crime, I will make sure that your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly. My criminal law practice encompasses all types of state criminal charges ranging from violent offenses to drug offenses and serious traffic offenses, including drunk driving (DWI) and driving on a suspended license.

Thank You Marc Atas Esq
I have been a client of Marc Atas since 2006 when I was injured while working. He is attentive, available, thorough, compassionate and prepared with details of my complicated case. His extensive experience and knowledge were evident in and out of the courtroom. I feel that Marc facilitated the most positive outcome that can realistically be expected and would recommend him without hesitation. The process is long and he is patient. I respect Marc for using his abilities to help individuals such as myself navigate the complexities of the current system.

Fast*Reliable*Friendly
I've been using Mr Atas for legal issues for years now and I couldn't imagine going to any other firm. Mark and his staff are friendly and truly concerned about my legal needs. They made every legal issue I brought to them painless and left me completely satisfied. I delt with Mr Atas personally on every occasion until the issue was resolved. That was important to me. I wasn't handed around the office repeating my issue over and over on the phone to a different person. Thank you Mark for everything you've done for me and my family and my friends. You've been awesome!

A Lawyer You Can Trust To Work Hard For You
Marc walked me through the long, twisted journey of Worker's Compensation. He basically held my hand through the entire process. When I first came to him, I really didn't know how much I needed his services. The insurance company was giving me the run around about my injury; making me feel like it was somehow my fault, etc. Once Marc became involved, I got results. He did all of the leg work and assisted me with finding doctors that specialized in my type of injury, etc. He followed up to make sure I received benefits for my injury. When my benefits stopped over the holidays, he made sure my children had a holiday. He allowed me to cry when I needed to cry, but balanced that with letting me know when I wasn't making sense. My injury will affect me for the rest of my life and Marc made sure in settlement, my medication and related injury would be covered. If you need a lawyer that you can trust to work tirelessly on your behalf, you need Marc!
