The man for the job
Mark took my case and told me not to worry as he explained in terms I could understand what his goal was for an outcome I would be satisfied with. He was speedy and had this whole mess solved within a few weeks. His assistant Victoria was very helpful and never left me wondering where I stood.

Big trucks aren’t always at fault
If it wasn’t for Mark Post & his office I would be hyped up on pain relievers. He was able to get me a second opinion, indeed I did need surgery. The orthopedic doctor said I had extensive damage. The surgery was successful. Thank you Mark Post, Law
Response from Mark Post November 13, 2021
We are very thankful you got the care you needed. It is scary how easy it would have been for you to get sucked in to a life trying to manage chronic pain. Thank you for taking time to post this review.

He was there when no one else was
Mark was the only lawyer that was there when no one else would even look at our case. He went the extra mile making sure that my wife received the physical help she needed to get rid of the constant pain. Although we won that was most important to me

Warrant Dismissal
I reached out to Mark Post due to renewal of my passport was denied. The denial was due to an outstanding bench warrant from Muskogee County, Georgia, August 1989 which I was not aware of. I don't live in Georgia and sought advice and was informed required a lawyer from Georgia. After several attempts to try to locate one and reviewing reviews, contacted Mark Post's office and spoke to his paralegal, Victoria. Arranged for Zoom meeting and discussed the letter form the U.S. State Department denying the renewal of my passport. Mark thoughly explained the process, as the warrant was old, the research to locate which department issue the warrant, along with the fee. Mark called and kept me abreast of the steps he had or was taken to one, locate the warrant and two to have the warrant dismissed. Called to informed of the dismissal of the warrant and provided court documentation. It was a successful conclusion. Satisfied with his representation and keeping me inform.

Best Attorney Around! Bye bye Warrant!
My case was very tricky. Let me start off by saying I have contacted multiple attorneys that said they wouldn't be able to help me due to the situation. But once I talked to Mark I knew right then and there I was in good hands! I had a warrant for my arrest that was dated back to 2015 in Georgia. I currently stay in Indiana so none of the lawyers in Indiana or Georgia would help me except for Mark Post. The warrant was for a felony charge. Most attorneys said I would need to turn myself in so the case could go through the courts before they could proceed to help me. Mark on the other hand from day one listened to me and did not want me to come anywhere near GA. I hired Mark in March of 2021 and my warrant was dropped August of 2021! He made phone calls, sent emails, and contacted the right people to give me my freedom back! He was very personal. Always available to answer any questions I may have had from being impatient (the suspense was killing me lol). I trusted him and he was worth every penny! He is very knowledgeable and informative. I don't plan on having any more criminal problems but if you do have any problems he is definitely the one to call! Seriously he is the best! If your reading this Mark you're definitely a blessing and I thank you so much! Keep doing a great job!

Excellent Representation
Hired Mark to deal with an old misdemeanor conviction on my record. He quickly ascertained the facts of the matter (I had kept poor records of it), and proceeded to arrange for precisely the outcome that I needed. He remained in great communication throughout and ensured I had everything I needed at the conclusion of the matter. Highly recommend!

Excellent and quick follow up
Mark helped me out with a case that was almost 20 years old. I had no idea if it was even worth pursuing but getting my record fixed was worth it to me so I reached out to him and explained the details of the case. Mark was realistic about what he would be able to do but also let me know that hope was not lost. I decided to go forward with him based on the initial consultation and he was able to accomplish everything that he promised and then some. After a little mix up at first (I was waiting on his office to do something and they were waiting on me) everything went smoothly and he was able to do exactly what he promised. If you need assistance from a competent and professional lawyer then you will not be disappointed with Mark and his firm.
