Facing Series of Computer Felony Charges
When someone in my family was charged with serious computer felonies I was terrified. I was even more afraid that the federal government would be taking the case and would be bringing federal charges that carried long mandatory minimum sentences. Mr. Jones took the time to get to know our family and to understand our issues. He was able to get the best available experts and worked tirelessly with the prosecutors. Because of his hard work and dedication, no federal charges were brought and Mr. Jones was able to convince the prosecutor to offer a plea to probation.

An Excellent Attorney
The government was accusing me and my company of withholding hundreds of thousands of dollars. Mr. Jones poured through thousands of pages of records and receipts and was able to convince the government to decline the criminal prosecution. I don't know what would have happened to me without someone who worked so hard and so quickly for us. We are truly thankful for Mr. Jones' services.

Very Dedicated
Mr. Jones represented me when the company I worked for was being investigated by the federal government. Over several years, Mr. Jones fought to ensure that I did not get falsely accused or wrongly charged with anything. I am so grateful that Mr. Jones was there to protect me and my rights during that investigation.

Not Guilty!
Mark Jones is an exceptionally intelligent and talented attorney with years of experience trying criminal cases. Mark was not afraid to take the case to trial, he did not back down from the prosecutor, and two words say everything you need to know how Mark handled the case – Not Guilty.

Federal court charges
My family member was charged in federal court with a serious computer-related offense that carried a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in federal prison. Mr. Jones spent the time to learn and understand the unique facts of the case and got multiple experts testified in the case. Because of his hard work, skill and expertise, the final sentence was 80% less than the originally-chargeday mandatory minimum. I do not know what we would have done without Mr. Jones.
