Great job
I consulted with Mr. Westerfield on a Friday, retained him as counsel that same day, he worked over the weekend to get a motion drafted, then turned it in Monday to the courthouse. It was a motion to reconsider a petition for expungement I'd submitted previously. Mark showed clearly that the commonwealth attorney had been wrong, which the C.A. then admitted, and the petition was granted exactly one week after I first spoke with Mark.

With lots of published answers to legal questions on Avvo.com too, it should be obvious to anyone that Mark cares about making sure people get good (and accurate) advice on their rights and obligations.
