Excellent Lawyer!
Blake did an excellent, efficient, and honest job in handling my DUI case. My case was taken very seriously by Mr. Marcus and his confidence helped to calm me during a very difficult time. I appreciated Blake's knowledge of the law and his professional demeanor in court. Blake delivered the best possible outcome for me and I encourage anyone in a similar predicament to contact him to discuss their case.

Professional, Outcome As Predicted!
I hired Blake Marcus to represent me in a DWI case. My choice was to plead guilty, but I wanted to make sure that the plea was justified, that I did everything possible to help get the minimum sentence, and that I put the matter behind me ASAP. Blake provided perfect advice to help me do this, and represented me with efficiency and professionalism. The outcome was exactly what he predicted it would be. Blake was supportive and encouraging throughout this difficult process.

Fantastic attorney!
Mr Marcus represented me in a DWI case. He stayed in touch the entire time worked with me in every way and got the best outcome possible. He was quick to answer every question and offer answers to questions I didn't even think to ask.

Dui Lawyer
Beyond impressed, Mr. Marcus has been nothing but helpful towards me over the period of the past year. He has helped me by walking me through all the steps that we needed to accomplish. At no point in time have I had to wonder about anything. I felt as if I could talk to Mr. Marcus as a friend instead of service. I have not had to worry about any contact issues, if anything he has called me before I could call him. Genuinely a good guy, very nice and respectful. I truly loved the fact that mr Marcus would ask me how I was doing in general beside what was going on in court. Definitely the type of person to turn a bad day into a good day. Don’t think twice about picking Mr Marcus.

Great
Blake Marcus should be your first and only choice for legal council in the Hendersonville area. He is professional, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. His advice and counsel saved us a lot of money and stress as he gave us the best possible outcome. He and his paralegal Stephanie were always available regardless of personal events. I cannot say enough about my experience and his performance. Thank you!

Got Me Straightened Out...No Problem
I got a referral to Blake from another attorney and cold called him. He didn't know me from Adam but sat on the phone with me for a good 10 minutes while I explained what I was up against and gave me free legal advice on how to proceed so that I could get my license reinstated. A solid guy. I highly recommend him and should I ever get into trouble again, he'll be my first phone call.

Best experience ever with an attorney
Blake handled a tax fee from NCDOR that came from a criminal case. By far the best experience I've had from an attorney. Great communication, very fair fees and got my settlement price at 20% of original amount. Could not say enough good things!!!

Excellent honest attorney to have on your side.
Mr. Marcus was exceptional in explaining my options and telling me what to expect. I appreciate that he did not make false promises to gain my business. He was always up front and he let me know at every step what to expect and also what I needed to do. His list he sent at the beginning was great and I referred to it often to make sure I was doing everything he suggested in the right time. During an extremely stressful time in my life, I was grateful to have Mr. Marcus on my side. The end result was exactly as he told me to expect.

Excellent Attorney in court and outside courtroom
Our family hired Blake to represent a family member and he was excellent. From the initial phone call to the closing memo regarding the excellent outcome he achieved, Blake was responsive to our calls and emails and his staff did great follow up with the administrative matters that needed to be accomplished. I strongly recommend Blake without reservation.
