Knows the law and his court
I was distraught. I was panic stricken. Then I hired Andrew Marks. He was confident in my case. And he spent the time to convince me not to worry. I tried my best to believe in all he had to say. And not let my imagination ruin the months ahead of me. His prognosis was perfect. He made my nightmare disappear with little to no pain. He knows his stuff and he knows his county. I feel so lucky to have found him. I received the best council and outcome possible.

Great guy
Andrew was great throughout the process. He gave me best and worst case scenarios from the start and worked hard to get my DUI charge dropped to reckless driving. Also, AJ out front is a sweetheart and always quick to help get small questions answered.

Great Person and Attorney
Perhaps the thing that impressed me most about Andrew Marks was nothing was "sugar coated". He was very straight forward and told my Grandson what to expect each step of the way. Andrew kept my Grandson informed of each step and what the options were and what the risks could be. There were no empty promises made just to keep the client happy which I know sometimes occurs when seeking counsel. Since this was the first time going through this type of case we had many questions, he answered honestly. He said" I will treat your Grandson like I would my own children and he did. Thank you

Andrew Marks Review
Andrew was a remarkable attorney. Very personable throughout my entire process. He was reachable at all times and replied in a very timely manner. He got my charges lessened and my fees/probation reduced. Without him it would have been a miserable process. Thank you Andrew!

Amazing attorney
Andrew is an amazing attorney! My son Cody was facing federal charges for something that was not his fault. We hired Andrew right away and he did everything he could to get my sons case dismissed and it got dismissed. He is persistent and stayed on top of everything. He is very personable, kind and caring. He treated us with respect and made us feel very comfortable. I would very much recommend Andrew.

Case Dismissal
Andrew is a really professional lawyer and did everything he could to dismiss my case. I was pulled over on a military base using someone else’s vehicle and they had a firearm and a gram of weed. This was my first offense and he was able to dismiss my case. If you are thinking of hiring Andrew, you’re making the correct choice by hiring him. Thank you Andrew!!

Andrew helped me get a DUI reduced to a reckless driving charge and also got a ticket dismissed for me at the same time. Would recommend to anyone. Very satisfied with the outcome.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Marks is a very knowledgeable and experienced Attorney. We hired him for our Grandson’s case and knew he was the right attorney for us from our telephone consultation which he conducted while he was out of town. He had already reviewed the case and answered all our questions. Mr Marks did not disappoint, he was able to have some of the charges reduced and kept our grandson from serving a prison term! I hope our family never needs another defense attorney but if we do I wouldn’t use anyone else.

Andrew NEVER gave up on my case
Many year's ago Mr. Marks helped me out of a unfortunate situation.. That most of course assumed I was guilty of, but after retaining Andrew and after he reviewed what had happened and me sitting in jail for almost 6 months.. Mr. Marks on my day in court was even able to have the police officer involved show up in court along with other witnesses state that I had done nothing wrong to the judge.. All charges where dropped and since I've moved on with my life ... Definitely a life lesson learned on how quickly you can find yourself in a terrible situation.. Thank you Andrew for your unwavering pursuit to get to the bottom of my case.

Two Felony cases dismissed
My experience with Andrew and his staff was, under the circumstances, great. If you’re looking for a no nonsense, communicative and intelligent attorney with vast knowledge of law, Andrew meets and exceeds. An attorney who displays confidence in the courtroom, which in turn proves favorable to his clients. Thank you Andrew and staff for your dedication and courtesy throughout this difficult experience!

Call Andrew! He WINS!
Andrew is THE choice for your case. He became a fishing buddy and friend over twenty years ago when he helped me greatly with another legal matter. Recently I was facing a BUI charge that I really felt was a bit over the top. Andrew took my case, prepaired me for what to expect and kept me in the loop as to the workings of my misdemeanor case while freeing me up to get on with my life. Mr. Marks answered all of my questions and was easy to get in touch with. Ultimately, Andrew got my case DISMISSED! I have to admit I was prepared for some consequences, but the relief of hearing that he got my case dismissed was overwhelming. I have recommended Andrew Marks to several friends over the years and more times than not they have come out way better than they would have going it alone. Do NOT go it alone! Call Andrew and let him do the heavy lifting!

He IS the Best Lawyer in the Area!
I was referred to him by a friend, and it was the best referral. After our first meeting, he took care of business. Kept me informed every step of the way. Even though it was initially a charge of DUI, he was not just going to go along with it. After his due diligence and hard work, he had it knocked down to a Reckless. That is no easy task for any lawyer. You can NOT go wrong by choosing Andrew Marks as your lawyer! So if you're ever thinking about drinking and driving... DON'T! Even if it's a little bit. But if you're on here reading this... just be prepared for a lot of Uber and Lyft rides. Just be patient and hopefully Andrew will help you like he helped me! Best decision I ever made in having a lawyer on my side. Thank you Andrew!

Excellent Attorney
I had a really bad experience with the first attorney I hired. Then I was blessed that a friend recommended me to Andrew Marks. All the anxiety I had after hiring the wrong lawyer the first time were gone after my initial phone conversation with Andrew Marks. Few days later we meet for a in person consultation I felt after our meeting I retained on the spot. He immediately went to work on my case calling and texting me throughout the day to give me any updates on progress he had made. The tireless effort he put in the very first day I hired him he was able to work his magic to get me an emergency hearing with in a few days. The day of the hearing we meet before court time and he explained how the whole process worked while in court which help to ease my anxiety and nervousness. The last thing he said to me that gave me confidence things were going to go well in court was " I got you covered " which meant to me that he did everything in his power to get the best outcome for me. Which I truly believe he did. Andrew Marks is at the top of his profession and if he's not representing you, you hired the wrong attorney.

Fantastic lawyer
Andrew is amazing and extremely reliable. He assisted me with a DUI charge and got it reduced to a reckless. He was honest and thorough giving me all the options to consider. He was available almost immediately when I called with a question or concern. His fees are also extremely reasonable. He saved me headache and worry knowing he had my best interest at the forefront.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 20
Relationship: Family member
"Ok, so I may be biased as Andrew's wife & fellow attorney, but I can honestly say that Andrew gives every client 110% effort. His clients benefit from his compassion, legal knowledge, over 20 years experience & good working relationships with the local prosecutors, judges, law enforcement and bail bondsmen. I've advised him many times to leave his work at the office so it doesn't infringe on our family time, but usually to no avail. He's always "on" and I don't think he'd have it any other way! I highly endorse Andrew for your Florida criminal legal matter."
