I hired this firm to represent me in a simple landlord tenant dispute.
They do not have an office; they work out of the managing partner’s home, (not very professional).
Their website boast of all their experience, but the lawyer that showed up at court had just gotten his law license within the past year, and he acted like this was his first court case.
He was no trial attorney; the opposing attorney far surpassed him in the courtroom.
Their fee amounted to over $3000 for one day in court. My leases provide that if I take legal action against the tenant and prevail, they must pay reasonable legal fees. The judge ruled that their fees were not reasonable, and would only allow less than 1/3 of what they charged me.
The opposing attorney stated that he charged his client one quarter of what they billed me. The attorney from called me one afternoon when I was on another call. When I called back, he was on another call and they charged me $6.50 to tell him that I returned his call.
This law firm is an example of why people hate lawyers.

Mark's office took great care of me through the closing of my home refi. His associate Brent Bartlett was knowledgable and made the closing go perfectly; he even had one missing document delivered directly to the closing table. A+++

Using Mark's Firm resulted in the exact experience that you would want and expect from a Real Estate Attorney. Information that comes up when you are trying to close a house is ongoing and you depend on somebody knowing how to advise you, and you also need to be able to reach them immediately when you need to get things done due to the time sensitivity typically associated with Real Estate closings. I hired them for their expertise and I received a very personal level of service that I was pleasantly surprised with. Not to mention that they are extremely competitively priced. As far as I'm concerned they are the only Real Estate Law firm that exists in Forsyth County.

Mark is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate world. From general closings to the specialized realm of condemnation law, Mark Weinstein is one of the best, if not the best, real estate lawyers in Forsyth County. His experience has definitely been his clients' advantage.
